pioneeravic_z110bt-sbPioneer has made some of the coolest car and home stereos around for a long time. When I was a kid, my day bought a new Pioneer stereo that cost him $500, which was big money back in the day. I promptly broke the turntable trying to scratch and spent a week or so being grounded. Ah, the good old days.

Pioneer is a bigger name in home theater and in-car electronics than home stereos today. The company has announced a slick new double DIN head unit that is the top-of-the-line the company offers. The Pioneer AVIC-Z110BT has a 7-inch motorized touchscreen that covers up the CD/DVD player and radio.

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.

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on April 29th, 2009

Elderly to get GPS so they won't get lost in supermarketsIt’s one thing to get lost in a car, a town, a city. It’s something else entirely to get lost in a supermarket while driving a shopping cart. Apparently Grocery stores are more dangerous and confusing than any of us knew. Especially to the elderly. It’s a real concern. They get confused.

One minute you’re pushing your cart by the oatmeal, hitting a few stock boys with your cane, bitching about the government, talkin’ about the good old days when bread was 50 cents, when next thing you know you’re in the frozen food section with a pregnancy test in your 80 year old hand and a fresh fish sticking out of your purse. Wth?

Posted in Garmin by Shane McGlaun on April 17th, 2009

garminnuvi1490tThe last time I took my family on vacation without a GPS, I was irritated before we got out of town. I tried to let my wife read the map, which was a bad idea. Perhaps schools should teach basic map reading to girls when they take them out of class that one day during health to learn about girly parts and pregnancy. The easy remedy to this is to use GPS, which can be a marriage saver.

Garmin has announced a new GPS device called the nuvi 1490T that has a thin profile and a large 5-inch screen. The large screen is touch enabled and can save five different routes to allow route planning in advance.
