Samsung digital frames are also a second PC monitor

Posted in Digital Photo Frames by Conner Flynn on October 16th, 2008

Samsung digital frames are also a second PC monitorLooking like typical Samsung LCD digital photo frames, these have an interesting and more useful feature. You can use them as a secondary PC monitor and you won’t need a special video card. The 8-Inch Samsung SPF-85H LCD will cost you $142 and 10-inch Samsung SPF-105P LCD costs $204.

Thanks to some hocus pocus called UbiSync PC, you can display computer imagery on them via the USB port. The 8-inch version will give you 800×600 resolution, while the 10-inch has a 1024×600 screen. Both models offer 1GB of internal image storage and a memory card slot if you want to use them as a plain old digital photo frame. Pretty cool.

Digital Bra stays on, sounds off

Posted in Apparel by Conner Flynn on August 20th, 2008

Digital Bra stays on, sounds offI’m really not sure what this proves, but if you modify a woman’s bra I’m there. Sarah Layne has created what she calls a “Digital Bra.” She wanted a bra that could send out feedback noises. Hey, after a few beers and coppin a feel, I would have given her some feedback. Am I right guys? Anyway, the noises couldn’t be heard until she touched the bra with the piezo disks. The fingers would have these piezo disks, which are microphones, attached and the bra speakers. Put them together and it creates strange sounds.(No. Not “Oh baby. Yeah that’s it”.)

The sounds may help you understand more about your body and you may just have a good time even if you don’t learn anything. Sarah used 2 amplifiers, 6 speakers, 2 piezo disks, netting, cloth material, plastic, cardboard and Velcro. She plans to create an updated version of the bra and some digital underwear to really spice things up. Like I said, I don’t know what it proves, except that Sarah likes to play herself like an instrument. You go girl.

Robotic Stonehenge Clock is always busy

Posted in Robots by Conner Flynn on August 4th, 2008

Robotic Stonehenge Clock is always busy
This awesome “digital” clock was created by Software architect Steve Norris and uses a robot arm and 14 numbered cards to display the current time. Steve obviously does not fear the coming robot apocalypse and isn’t afraid to help it along. The video shows a time update from 12:09 to 12:10.

The upside for humans is that you have an awesome clock that you want to look at, the downside for the robot is that it’s always busy. Never a minute to itself to plot our downfall as it dutifully gives you the time, which I guess is another upside for humans. The robot uses a CrustCrawler Smart Arm and a Parallax Propeller chip to do it’s thing. Consider a kind of visual interpretation of what all clocks do. Just cooler.

Comics coming to the Nintendo Wii

Posted in Wii by Conner Flynn on July 24th, 2008

Comics coming to the Nintendo WiiSettle down now. I didn’t mention Batman or Spiderman, now did I? A Japanese joint venture between several comic loving entities will be distributing digital comic books to the Nintendo Wii through the Internet. Again, settle down. The service will be available to those in Japan only.

In fact, the digital content delivery service has already begun, and they are working on being able to transfer the data to the DS Lite platform down the road. This means that it’s only a matter of time until we can get actual Marvel or DC comics delivered to our Wii. And that is the most awesomest thing ever. But for now, just settle down.

Maxx digital DVD player looks a tad familiar
As far as originality, you won’t find any here. When they designed this Maxx Digital portable DVD player, they simply re-did the PSP for some reason I can’t fathom. Not that it’s not a good looking PSP. It is. It’s just a PSP, not a DVD player design. I just don’t like all my stuff to look like PSP’s, that’s all I’m saying.

The PDV-8500BLK features a nice 8.5-inch LCD widescreen, and will play videos in DVD, DVD+/-R, DVD+/-RW, CD, CD-R/RW, VCD and SVCD formats. It’s also got support for JPEG, MP3 and MPEG4 files via a built-in SD, MMS/MS card reader slot. Strangely it doesn’t play video games at all. And no UMD discs. It will cost you $120.

Digimech clock has gear driven display

Digimech clock has gear driven display
We all love interesting clocks. And by interesting, I mean bizarre. UK designer Duncan Shotton’s Digimech clock looks like a simple LED clock at first glance, but it’s actually a complicated mechanical machine that creates digital illusions. The vertical slides slowly move into position inside of a black masking box and the time is revealed.

Time marches on while the sliders climb to the top, until the 9th digit hits. Then it drops the slider all the way back to the original position. The slider are moved by 3 servos. It’s a very original and large clock that blends digital and mechanical in an interesting way. Check out the video below.

Digital Door Viewer is the new peephole

Digital Door Viewer is the new peephole
The old style peep hole leaves a lot to be desired. I mean, you have to get up and actually go to the door, in order to see who’s there.(Or if you’re snooping on your neighbors.) And that’s all it does. No more. Just place your eye in front and look. Well, now the peep hole has been given an upgrade.

It will let you know who is outside through a motion sensor and you can take a look from anywhere in your home. The device comes with an SD memory card slot and will store up to 11 hours on a 4GB SD card. This way, you will know who came by while you were away. It will run you $195.

Intempo Rebel records FM radio songs, flips the bird to the RIAA

Intempo Rebel records FM radio songs, flips the bird to the RIAA
Here’s a lawsuit waiting to happen. This device lives up to it’s name by recording all of your favorite songs directly from FM radio. It’s like they just flipped off the RIAA, or else they were not bright enough to realize that this would draw their attention. It will save your tracks as MP3 files onto an SD card, without the annoying advertisements and DJ talk. Isn’t that what you’ve been waiting for? It also has a USB port, line-in jack, and headphone plug. I would say grab one fast, as this is too good to be true and too up in the RIAA’s bidness. It will cost you £69.99.

Dumbbells get smart

Posted in Sports by Conner Flynn on June 12th, 2008

Dumbbells get smart
The dumbbell hasn’t had an upgrade in a long time, if ever. Well, now suddenly they are getting smarter. What if you could have an entire set of dumbbells in one compact design? That’s the idea behind this concept by Sang-Hoon Lee.

You can digitally adjust the weight of the dumbbell. There are tiny balls inside the dumbbell that spin. The faster the balls spin, the heavier they weigh, thereby beefing you up so you don’t look like a girly man. You can adjust the speed of the balls, which adjusts the weight, simply with a dial and pushing buttons. The set comes with a charger cradle..
