Microsoft Research’s shoulder mounted system makes anything a multitouch display

Wednesday, March 7th, 2012

Remember the nifty new 3D transparent display, augmented reality mirror, and remote sharing technology that Microsoft revealed just over a week ago? Turns out that Redmond’s research arm wasn’t done doling out the gadget goodies, as it’s now showing off a new Wearable Multitouch Projector that turns any surface into a gesture-sensitive display. Using Kinect-style motion and depth sensing cameras in concert with a pico projector and a PC, you can tap, swipe and pinch-to-zoom to your heart’s content on the nearest flat surface. It’s currently a rather clunky, cabled contraption, but the touch input does appear to work pretty well, and the researchers who built it think that the tech can be miniaturized to a more user-friendly size in the future. See for yourself in the video after the break.

Nokia 801 adds one part Belle, one part polycarbonate body for 100 percent possibility

Tuesday, February 7th, 2012

See that up there? That slick-looking, Belle-operating beaut is most definitely not Nokia’s rumored 801 handset. No, what you’re looking at above is simply a mock-up based on recent rumors circling the web, which peg this 12 megapixel-toting unicorn as the successor to the N8 and 701. It’s hard to tell which considering the supposed bits of borrowed specs and chassis conspire to blend the polycarbonate stylings of the Lumia 800 and N9 with a 1.4GHz processor, 512MB of RAM and a 4-inch ClearBlack AMOLED display. You might dismiss this gossamer whisper as a mere ghost of Espoo future, but before you do, keep in mind that it has Eldar Murtazin’s backing. Sure, there are more concrete paths to credibility (an official announcement for one), but given the existence of the company’s 603 — a Lumia 710 with a Symbian heart — he might be right on the euro.

Elpida starts shipments of next-gen Wide IO Mobile RAM

Friday, December 30th, 2011

Tablets might be all sexy curves and Gorilla Glass, but it’s what’s on the inside that counts, right? Efficient DRAM mightn’t set your heart alight, but Elpida Memory did just start shipping its next generation 30nm “Wide IO Mobile RAM.” The firm claims it uses 50 percent less power compared with equivalent DDR2 sticks, letting you caress your beloved device for longer. This economy is thanks to it purring along at just 200MHz, which is even more impressive when you consider it brags a 12.8 GB/s data rate per chip. This pumped, yet frugal, performance comes courtesy of using x512-bit data width — some ten times larger than that of existing DRAMs. The party doesn’t stop there, with the Elpida also debuting its LPDDR3 chip, brushing aside LPDDR2 with twice the data rates at 6.4GB/s a slice, and a 25 percent smaller power-drain in tow. Mass production should commence in 2012, check the source link for the full break-down.

Mouse Computer’s LuvBook S heals emotional scars, one Hello Kitty at a time

Saturday, November 26th, 2011
What the world needs now is just one thing, and that thing is a bejeweled Hello Kitty laptop. Fortunately, Japan’s Mouse Computer is well aware of this, which is why it’s unleashed the LuvBook S, pictured above. Designed in collaboration with Sanrio and Swarovski, this masterpiece is powered by a 2.2 GHz Intel Core i3-2330M processor and boasts an 11.6-inch, 1,366 x 768 display. It also packs a 500GB HDD and a 1.3 megapixel camera, but all that really matters is the swaggy centerpiece — a heart-ensconced Hello Kitty mug made out of about 1,100 Swarovski stones and untold buckets of cuddles. The LuvBook is available now for $900, at the source link below.

Audi’s electric Urban Concept says that less is more, really means it

Wednesday, September 14th, 2011
Audi's electric Urban Concept says that less is more, really means it

You don’t have to by an exotic, race-bred sportscar to get something made of carbon fiber with exposed suspension and racy looks. Thanks to Audi, you can actually go quite far to the opposite end of the spectrum. Meet the Urban Concept, a little guy with a big heart and just two seats — offset slightly to give both driver and passenger maximum shoulder space in a decidedly slender chassis. With just 20 horsepower on tap it will hardly light your world afire, but weighing only 480kg (just over 1,000 pounds) and featuring a racy pushrod suspension, it should be quite the corner-carver.

Power comes from a 7.1kWh battery pack that’s inductively charged, meaning no need to plug in at the end of the day. A 45 mile radius means you won’t be getting far out of town, but Audi did call this the Urban Concept, after all. (Presumably a future “Suburban Concept” would ship would ship with bigger batteries.) Audi crafted both Sportback (with roof) and Spyder (without) versions but didn’t say when — or more importantly if — either version will ever see production.

LG goes big with stylus-equipped PenTouch plasma TVs

Thursday, September 1st, 2011

It’s a good time to be a stylus fan. Not only has Samsung debuted its handwriting-friendly Series 7 Slate and Galaxy Note tablets, but LG is also bringing the stylus into the living room with its new series of PenTouch plasma TVs. Available in both 50-inch and 60-inch varieties, each TV comes with a pair of Touch Pens that let you either control the TV and included software like a calendar and photo gallery, or simply draw on it to your heart’s content. As if that wasn’t enough, the top-end 60-inch model is also a 3D TV, and include one pair of active shutter glasses — it’ll run you $2,199, while the non-3D models come in at $1,699 and $1,099. Unfortunately, you’ll also have to supply your own Windows PC to take full advantage of that touch-functionality.

We’re In ushers Bing into the location-based social networking game

Bing We're In

Are you one of the few out there who thought Latitude was, like, totally awesome, but your heart lies with the boys at Redmond? Well, rejoice Bing fans, because We’re In is the location-based social network you’ve been waiting for. At its most basic, the app lets you share your location with friends, find contacts on a map, and update your status — great for seeing who is around and organizing outings. But, We’re In has one unique feature that’s actually quite ingenious, location sharing is time limited. You choose who to share GPS data with and for how long. Once the invite expires — poof! No more tracking. A few more details and the download link can be found at the source.

Nokia’s N9 coming to Kazakhstan on September 9th, gets its own billboard

Monday, August 15th, 2011
Nokia N9 Billboard

Well, the list of places that won’t be seeing Nokia’s N9 seems to be growing larger everyday. And, while it won’t bring comfort to the poor souls in the US, UK or Germany, we can confirm that the fine citizens of Kazakhstan should be getting a heaping helping of MeeGo come September. A tipster sent us flyer from Texhodom advertising the Swedish company’s foray into Linux-powered smartphones as landing on September 9th for 99,990 Kazakh tenges, or about $679. The same tipster made us even more jealous when he sent in some photos of a giant billboard taunting the imminent arrival of the handset at the same electronics retailer. So, if you really have your heart set on an N9, and want one before those pasty folks in Switzerland and Sweden, looks like its time to book your ticket to Almaty.

[Thanks, Aziz]
