Posted in Sony by Conner Flynn on January 11th, 2009

Sony Cybershot G3 camera lets you surf the WebThe Sony Cybershot G3 is a true first. It boasts direct web browsing from the camera via WiFi. The camera can upload photos and videos to Web sites through any public hotspot via its built-in Web browser. It comes with complimentary AT&T WiFi access to Sony’s Easy Upload Home Page all the way up until Jan. 31, 2012. It includes Wi-Fi access at thousands of AT&T hotspots across the United States, including participating coffee shops, some bookstores and quick-serve restaurant locations, plus hundreds of upscale hotels and airports. Some specs on the camera include a dedicated WLAN button, direct links to photo sharing sites like Shutterfly and Picasa Web Albums; video sharing sites like YouTube and Dailymotion.

The Sony Cybershot G3 also features a high-resolution 3.5-inch (921,600-dot) LCD screen, support for DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) guidelines, 10-megapixel sensor with 4x optical zoom Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens, 4GB of built-in storage (optional expansion is Memory Stick only), and Intelligent Scene Recognition feature with Face Detection technology. Sounds pretty sweet to me.

$5,000 Pinhole camera made from human skull

Posted in Cameras by Conner Flynn on January 8th, 2009

$5,000 Pinhole camera made from human skullNow if I wanted to act like a pompous twit, I might say something like, “This piece speaks directly to my soul and illustrates the futility of man. Does it comment on life or death?” Pffft. I’m just gonna call it a fugly art skull decked out in all kinds of precious metals like silver, mercury and gold and gem stones. Cuz that’s what it is. Oh and it’s also a camera.

The skull camera is named “Yama” after the Tibetan god of death and it’s actually made from the skull of a Tibetan monk. It’s gotta be the creepiest looking pinhole camera I have ever seen. Not just the fugliest. A divider that splits it into two lets you see it’s inner view. It comes with a hefty price at $5,000.

WowWee Spyball spy camera

Posted in Robots by Conner Flynn on January 6th, 2009

WowWee Spyball spy cameraMuch like the Rovio, the WowWee Spyball spy camera will let you live out some James Bond fantasies. Or at the very least snap some upskirt pics. The tiny remote controlled robotic ball features built-in Wi-Fi connectivity and gets around on sleek wheels, capable of smooth mobility and quick 360-degree turns.

It can also transform from a ball to a camera and back within seconds, and it does it’s job quietly, so you can sneak around and get some dirt on people. The blackmail will follow. Another cool feature is that when it’s connected to a home network, the Spyball can be controlled remotely via the Internet.

The iPhone ELITE

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on December 29th, 2008

The iPhone ELITEThis one isn’t rumored to surface at all and we don’t expect to see it at MacWorld 2009. It should arrive eventually though, just because it is well thought out and just makes sense. This concept was born because Mat Brady wants to get rid of his Nokia N95 but won’t buy an iPhone due to the lack of a physical keyboard, no good camera, and not enough storage.

Mat’s concept is called the iPhone Elite. It’s an iPhone with 60GB of storage, true 16:9 aspect ratio, slide-out keyboard, one megapixel front camera for iChat, and another high quality camera, with better lenses, optical zoom, and video capability.

LG’s GD910 wrist phone with touchscreen & camera

Posted in LG by Conner Flynn on December 29th, 2008

LG’s GD910 wrist phone with touchscreen & cameraWe knew that eventually a watch phone would show up that packs in all of the features we want.Turns out that it’s LG who has accomplished this with their LG-GD910 model. The phone sports a touchscreen LCD, 3G data, and a built-in camera for videoconferencing and looking cool.

Of course using that 1.43-inch screen, it might be tough to browse the internet, but it’s all about looking cool, not what you can actually accomplish. You can’t get one now and we don’t have a price yet, but LG should be showing it off at CES next month. They plan a release in Japan and Europe, but that’s all we know.

iPhone gets Xenon flash from Snapture

Posted in Accessories by Shane McGlaun on December 24th, 2008

Snapture iPhone FlashI have tried on a few occasions to take pictures with my iPhone. It seems that no matter how brightly lit the room is, the camera simply can’t take a shot that’s not dark and grainy. Many other high-end camera phones offer a built-in flash, but so far, Apple has not added that feature.

Snapture offers editing software designed to run on the iPhone and it has now announced a new polycarbonate case that not only protects the iPhone from damage, but also adds a bright Xenon powered flash.

PSC: Playstation Compact camera

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on December 18th, 2008

Playstation Compact cameraEveryone has been waiting on news of some magical PSP phone from Sony. It may be awhile, so in the meantime, Petros Stambolis has gone ahead and designed a new Playstation Compact, a digital camera that looks like a PSP was cut in half.

Sony should probably consider making this one, though I’m not sure how it would go over. It has some pretty nice features. The PSC (Playstation Compact) implements the Digital Living Network that allows you to share photos, videos as well as sharing real time screen time with a PSP. Pretty interesting even if it does look chopped in half.

Webcam equipped headphones put eyes over your ears

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on December 7th, 2008

Webcam equipped headphones put eyes over your earsSeems like we have webcams in everything these days. They’re in everything and they are everywhere. It must have occurred to someone that the one place they missed was our ears. Which is a strange place for webcams, as we usually use them for other’s faces.

That’s what makes this so odd. This headphone/webcam combo will show you everything that is on your side. Maybe designer Andy Kurovets is just really paranoid. Maybe he has enemies that use his blind spots to their advantage. But chances are he just wanted to look like some fashion forward Sci-Fi dude.

Bottle Cap Tripod is pretty handyIf you’re like me, there have been many times when a tripod would have come in handy for picture taking, yet for some reason I haven’t bought one yet. This Bottle Cap Tripod is a handy solution and it doesn’t require you to tote anything heavy around. And chances are you have a soda bottle nearby. This gadget screws into the mounting screw on your camera, then you just put it on a bottle cap. Instant tripod. At only $10, it keeps you from being weighed down with larger equipment.

Motorola’s VE66 5-megapixel phoneIf you like the ZN5, but want something more, uh…rounded, and a slider, Motorola has something new for you. The VE66. It will give you a 5-megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash, image stabilization, WiFi, FM radio, CrystalTalk noise reduction, and a nice navigation wheel to make your life easier. It should launch some time this quarter. It’s got lots of good looks over the ZN5.
