The 2133 is still being hyped up and I am sure that a lot of future owners of the machine will be happy to know that your two options aren’t the unfamiliar Linux and the likely slow-booting Vista; you’ll now be able to get Windows XP installed. The reason is quite obvious; XP is loads faster on systems with such limited resources.
First of all, I was told I should preface this article with the fact that SlashGear does not condone piracy or any other illegal acts. Now that’s out of the way, let’s get to the real meat of this story. The Pirate Bay is being sued by the IFPI, which is basically the international version of the RIAA, for 1.6 million Euros.
If the 11-inch XEL-1 was too thick for you at 3mm for an OLED screen, Sony has a new on up their sleeve that manages to almost be more anorexic than paper. For reference, and average sheet of paper is roughly .1mm thick, so stack three sheets together, push down on it to remove an extraneous space, and then you’ve got yourself the thickness of one of these displays.
This is quite possibly the dumbest idea I’ve seen in a very, very long time. Essentially what this product suggests is that you lay part of this long ass adjustable strap across your laptop’s keyboard, then close it, and sling it over your shoulder leaving it open to the environment, being banged around, or worse, stolen.
I am not entirely sure how this thing works, but apparently the gist of it is soap-less dish washing. Somehow it uses sonic waves of water to remove even the deepest particles of dirt without the slightest amount of soap necessary.
Some guy put together and instructable on how to make an electric mountain board or whatever those off-road versions of skateboards are called. It’s pretty ingenious too taking most of his parts from electric scooters.
I saw some of these speakers at the Parrot booth at CES and they were pretty amazing and managed to overpower the hundreds of people that were crowded into what was a fairly small room. However the ones I saw didn’t use NFC to negotiate the Bluetooth connection between your device and the speakers, they did it the old fashioned way.
Starting with the projector, it has a 2000:1 contrast ration and 2220 lumens, which means it can be used just about anywhere. Add to that the 720p and 1080i support with its native 800x600 resolution and you’ve got yourself a nice projector. For those with more of an eco friendly mind it also has an ECO mode that saves power, lowers noise pollution, and extends the lamp life, the cost will save some paper too at a meager $499.
It’s a basic mobile Internet device. It has a rubberized bottoms, touchscreen, and slide out full keyboard, a very simple user interface, and a stylus. On the back is the battery and a 3MP camera for taking photos.
The JavaBot is, as you guessed, a robot that makes you coffee. The thing is, it’s not your usual fare of inserting pre-ground coffee that sucks and then it brewing and pouring it, this robot does it all short of picking the beans itself.
