Facade Printer: the most exciting inkjet you’ll see [Video]

If HP's inkjets were as interesting as this DIY Facade Printer, the company wouldn't have had to buy Palm just to get some press coverage.  The handiwork of German product designers and engineers Martin Fussenegger, Michael Haas and Julian Adenauer, the inkjet-with-attitude is capable of precisely firing individual colored dots from up to 20 feet away, creating huge - and surprisingly accurate - murals on whatever wall is unlucky enough to get in the way.

ASUS Eee PC 900AX resurrects 8.9-inch netbooks

BenQ DC T1260 12MP touchscreen camera with high contrast processing spotted

BenQ have outed their latest digital camera, the point-and-shoot DC T1260, and as well as offering a 12-megapixel CCD, wide-angle 4x optical zoom and the company's HDR image enhancement technology - which combines multiple frames to work around high contrast images having reduced visibility - there's also a touchscreen for easier control.  The T1260 follows hot on the heels of the DC E1260, spotted earlier this week, which has the HDR system but lacks the 3-inch touchscreen.
