Posted in Sci-Fi by Conner Flynn on October 27th, 2008

Origami Star Trek & Star Wars spaceships made from dollarsNowadays you probably don’t have much to do with your extra dollars, so here’s a good option. Make origami spaceships, like those from Star Trek and Star Wars, made entirely from folded dollar bills. The Millenium Falcon is a bit more expensive as it takes three dollar bills to get all that detail. It’s the work of Hawaii resident Won Park, whose next project is apparently Firefly’s Serenity. Awesome stuff.


Nokia announces the Music Bench

Posted in Nokia by Conner Flynn on October 27th, 2008

Nokia announces the Music BenchWhen you think Nokia, you think cellphones. But now the cell phone maker is getting into the bench biz. Nokia is setting up musical benches throughout the United Kingdom, in ‘secret locations’, in order to promote their Comes With Music audio service. Each bench will feature three integrated handsets with headphones so passers-by can sample music.

Apparently the track lists will mirror the region where the bench is deployed, so you would get the Beatles in Liverpool and say Black Sabbath in Birmingham. You probably already want to steal the bench since it’s neat and all. You can’t. Each will be under close supervision by a security guard and a “performer”.

Canon imagePRESS C1+Back when I had a real job I used to maintain the network, computers and printers in a large pharmacy. Someone was always breaking the laser printers and every time I had to mess with one, I ended up coated in black toner powder. The stuff was next to impossible to get off your clothes.

Canon has introduced a new printer that also uses clear toner, which I am sure would be easier to get out of your clothes. The printer using the clear toner is called the imagePRESS C1+. The printer is designed for the light production and proofing markets.

NEC announces new 22-inch LCD for color-critical use

Posted in NEC by Shane McGlaun on October 24th, 2008

NEC P221W LCDIn some environments it is imperative that the color you see on screen is the color you get when a finished design in printed. Graphic artists for instance can’t have a deep red coming out looking like pink when a brochure is printed. Photographers also need to be sure that the color they see on the screen is what the printed pictures look like.

NEC has announced a new display made especially for this type of environment. The P221W has an optional NEC SpectraView calibration kit that is available. The LCD covers 96% of the AdobeRGB color gamut and has internal programmable 10-bit lookup tables. I’m not sure what a lookup table is, but it sounds cool.

GoLive2 RacingOver the summer, an unknown company called GoLive2 announced what at first glanced sounded like a cool product called Stix. Stix was basically Wii-like motion controls for the PC. I tested a set of the Stix 200 controllers and found they weren’t that good.

GoLive2 is back with a new MMO racing game designed for the Stix controller titled GoLive2 Racing. Let’s be honest about this, the chances of the game being decent are slim to none when you consider how poorly the Stix controllers themselves functioned.
