Insert Coin: Hand Stylus for touch devices

Thursday, May 3rd, 2012

In Insert Coin, we look at an exciting new tech project that requires funding before it can hit production. If you’d like to pitch a project, please send us a tip with “Insert Coin” as the subject line.

Inventive scribbler Steve King — no, not that one — is working his fingers raw trying to raise $25,000 on Kickstarter. His project, the colorfully-named Hand Stylus, works with all your capacitive touchscreens, sports a retractable nib that rotates to avoid uneven wear, and even sticks to the magnet on an iPad. While it can’t replace the need for natural digits, it could potentially come in handy while taking notes, sketching, cooking, or experiencing frostbite. Skip down below the break for a video if you need more convincing, or you already lost the one that came with your Galaxy Note.

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012

It seems the home team might have a bit of an advantage at this Summer’s Olympic games. British athletes have been training with what’s called the MotivePro Suit, an awkward-looking getup that tracks their movements and provides vibrating feedback when they’ve nailed a routine. More »

Motorola RAZR HD running ICS spotted in the wild, 720p display in tow

Tuesday, April 24th, 2012

Last week, a Motorola engineer’s Picasa album all but confirmed the existence of the Motorola Droid RAZR HD. And while we can’t say his job has a future, it looks like this handset does. The latest leak includes some newly discovered blurry cam photos from China showing Motorola model MT887 running ICS. This matches the EXIF data posted by that errant engineer, which listed the RAZR HD’s build as 4.0.3. According to the latest images, the RAZR HD sports a 4.3-inch display — with an upgraded resolution of 720p — though the other specs appear to match the current batch of RAZRs. As Android Community points out, that relatively bulky body could mean there’s a 3,300mAH battery inside. That’s all well and good — unless Motorola also has a Droid HD RAZR Maxx set to launch a month after this guy. Then again, who would be so cruel as to pit your hopes for a higher-res RAZR against your dreams of an even longer-lasting smartphone?

Own one of LG’s Cinema 3D Smart TVs? If so, you’re in luck. The company formerly called Lucky Goldstar is now offering up 3D World, an online video store that, surprise surprise, sells 3D content.

Plantronics BackBeat Go headset sports tangle-free cord, ‘rich’ stereo sound

Tuesday, April 3rd, 2012

Plantronics has made a name for itself in the wireless headset space, but there’s plenty of room to grow when it comes to premium stereo offerings. BackBeat Go is the company’s smallest and lightest wireless earbud set to date, tipping the scale at 13 grams, or “about the weight of three nickels.” The cordless rig includes a pair of earbuds linked with a flat tangle-free cord, with inline controls to adjust volume and an integrated mic for calls. The Bluetooth-enabled Go can sync up with one device at a time, so you’ll need to repeat the pairing process if switching between phones or to a tablet — and you should be able to snag 4.5 hours of listening and talk time or 10 hours of standby with a single charge. Digital noise reduction and echo canceling play into the call experience, while the “deep, rich, stereo sound” means the earbuds are equally suited for leisure. Sound good to you? You can snag your own set for a cool $100 by clicking through to the source link below.

Sports Tracker arrives for Windows Phone, motivates runners with statistics

Saturday, December 17th, 2011

Tired of running and sweating with nothing to show for it but improved stamina and a svelte physique? Well, the stats tracking app that’s turned fitness buffs into numbers geeks has now arrived for Windows Phone, which joins its siblings for Android, iOS and Symbian. A free application, Sports Tracker allows runners and bicyclists to track their distance, speed, caloric burn and more. From there, users may upload their workout info to Sports Tracker’s website or their favorite social network — although, the latter seems likely to bring the ire of couch-prone friends. But don’t worry, we still support your efforts. So, push harder. Go faster. Reach over the top. Master that ass. And, so forth…
