Sony makes Tweeting device for cats

Posted in twitter by Conner Flynn on June 1st, 2010

If any animal’s language and lifestyle is suited to Twitter, it’s cats. I don’t know of any animal that speaks short sentences like a cat. And no matter what they say, it usually sounds like the same thing. They don’t do much either. Well, now Sony Computer Science Laboratories has created a device that detects your cats’ activities and Tweets them.

Using just a camera, an acceleration sensor, and GPS, it keeps track of your cats movements and will track basic activities like eating, sleeping, walking, and playing with other cats. Once it determines the activity, it will send one of 11 set text messages via bluetooth to a computer and post it to the cat’s Twitter feed.

Cool Leaf button-less flat input devices

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on March 3rd, 2010

Cool Leaf is an input system that is both flat and mirrored. It comes from a Japanese company called Minebea who have demonstrated it with a keyboard, calculator, and remote control that are all completely free of keys.

Sure they look amazingly futuristic, but they also make a lot of sense. The devices would be easier to clean with no keys that will gather dust and crumbs. Minebea has done a great job. The devices have backlights, force sensors, and a film from a company called Toray Industries that is the world’s first “electrostatic capacity type touch panel and a load sensor.”

Sony introduces NV-U3DV Nav-U GPS navigation deviceSony’s new NV-U3DV navigation system should turn a few heads with its large 6.1-inch screen. But that’s not the only thing it has going for it. It sports a 480×272 resolution which will give you bigger buttons and more map space, along with some other unique features like Position+ G, which uses an accelerometer, gyro-sensor, and pressure sensors which help it figure out the direction of the vehicle.

Aside from those features, it has all the usual stuff, even mobile TV in Japan, live traffic information, and various guides from PetaMap. No word on a release in the states just yet, but those in Japan can pick one up in August for around $700.

Posted in Creative by Conner Flynn on July 7th, 2009

Creative readying first touch deviceAn FCC filing reveals that Creative’s first touchscreen media device will be called the Zii. The name alone implies that it will be powered by the dual-core Zii processor. The filing also shows an “HD camera” logo so it’s likely that this device will have the ability to capture video and playback in High Definition. Whether or not full HD is supported, we have no idea.

There is space on the side for an SD memory card slot as well. There are two versions of the device. The Zii and the Zii Egg. The Zii Egg is for developers.

MotoMap GPS device for bikes

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on May 12th, 2009

MotoMap GPS device for bikesStephen Dettman loves bikes. That’s why he designed the MotoMap GPS Device for Bikes concept. The concept uses two new technologies. Powerfilm flexible solar panels and e-ink flexible displays. First where do you put it? It tackles the hardware mounting issue by wrapping around the fuel tank with magnets in the adjustable straps. It should stay in place even in an accident.

When not in use, flip it around so that the solar panel can work, storing up juice. We won’t be seeing it anytime soon, but it’s an interesting idea. Even if it does somewhat resemble a saddle for your bike.

Mystery swivel prototype device shows up

Posted in Mobile Phones by Conner Flynn on December 7th, 2008

Mystery swivel prototype device shows upWhat do we have here? A new mystery swivel device that seems to feature a very tiny touchpad between the “mouse” buttons, but why not just make the entire display touch sensitive? Looks like a cross between an UMPC and a MID. This was snapped at Computex 2008 in Taipei in June.

Aside from the exterior, we don’t have any details. Your guess is as good as mine. The “P” symbol is probably where the Windows key is supposed to be. Who will carry the device if and when it ever comes out? What would be the operating system be? Tune in next time on “Mysteries of the swiveling kind”.

Patents point to a new handheld device from Sony

Patents point to a new handheld device from Sony
Sony’s patent application for a haptic touchscreen composed of “tactile pixels” shows former Sony Computer Entertainment chief Phil Harrison as the inventor. It also has a bunch of references to potential use in “a game device” and to “game events,” so it seems fairly obvious that it was developed as an idea for PSP.

The patent app describes a haptic feedback system that seems pretty complicated. The pixels themselves are capable of moving up and down, providing feedback to user actions. It’s certainly interesting, but we’re not gonna hold our breath waiting for this to hit the consumer market anytime soon. We wouldn’t mind being wrong though.

Honda will be showcasing the device at the International Trade Fair on Barrier Free Equipments & Rehabilitation for the Elderly & the Disabled. The device is available in three sizes and uses brushless DC motors powered by lithium ion batteries that will provide up to two hours of walking assistance per charge.

Safety-Sponge system keeps you sponge free

Safety-Sponge system keeps you sponge free
You would think that after years of fancy Doctor school, surgeons would know better then to sew you back up with say, a sponge or other equipment inside of you. These bozos are basically using their patients for mobile storage of their equipment. At least we can now do something about the sponges. The idea is that every single sponge has to be accounted for. You can’t rely on nurses to manually count the sponges before and after an operation. They’re too busy admiring and having sex with Doctor Hunk to give a toss.

Rely instead on the Safety-Sponge system from SurgiCount. It uses special bar codes printed on every sponge that are scanned into a PocketPC computer before and after they’re used. Because every single sponge has a unique bar code, the system even alerts the operating room staff if the same sponge has been scanned twice. So now you know. There is no longer any reason for these quacks to leave sponges inside of you. Other tools are still fair game, though. Like those tweezers in your abdomen.

Zeno device helps emo teens remove acne

Zeno device helps emo teens remove acne
If the mpion MP3 player didn’t remove your hardcore teen acne, try this Zeno device. It claims to be an acne Clearing device, that will improve your complexion. In fact, it’s the 1st FDA approved home gadget to remove acne.

The tip heats up when applied to a pimple. Supposedly that will cause some sort of a shock to the bacteria that causes acne. They claim that “two to three 2 1/2 minute treatments spread over 24 hours are sufficient for most pimples” and most pimples will disappear. There’s no question that this is the geeky gadget way to remove acne, but does it work? I think if ANYTHING worked the way they claimed, there would be no need for this product. It retails for $184.95.
