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

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.

eviGroup Wallet Android MID on sale in May for €199

Since we've apparently entered the culling phase of the tablet story arc - goodbye HP slate and Microsoft Courier, we'll miss your shiny renders - it's good to know that devices are still entering production rather than being canned.  French firm eviGroup have just announced that their Wallet Android MID has entered production and should be on sale, for €199 ($264), from May.  Carrypad chased up some details from director Nicolas Ruiz, including how he sees the Wallet facing against the Archos 5 Internet Tablet and what sort of help they've had from Google.

Bridgestone QR-LPD flexible e-paper gets video demo

Bridgestone QR-LPD flexible e-paper gets video demo

Bridgestone probably aren't the first company you'd associate with e-paper, but it seems they've been thinking about more than just tires of late.  They've rolled out a new flexible e-paper screen at Display 2011 in Japan this week, called QR-LPD or Quick Response Liquid Powder Display, which judging from this machine translation uses electrically-charged black and white particles held in a liquid substrate.

ASUS Eee PC 900AX resurrects 8.9-inch netbooks

ASUS Eee PC 900AX resurrects 8.9-inch netbooks

You could be forgiven for assuming the 8.9-inch netbook segment had died; while we've seen a few convertible tablet netbooks using sub-9-inch panels, predominantly to shave off a few extra millimetres from a machine intended to be carried around, regular netbooks have gravitated to 10.1-inch 1024 x 600 panels.  So, quite a surprise to see the new ASUS Eee PC 900AX, an 8.9-inch relaunch... with a few caveats.

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.

iPad jailbreak promised soon after 3G model’s release

iPad jailbreak promised soon after 3G model’s release

We've already heard about the first iPad WiFi + 3G deliveries being made - early - to preorder customers, but today's the day when the cellular-enabled iPad makes its official debut at Apple Stores.  Interestingly, it sounds like the iPhone Dev Team are ramping up for an iPad jailbreak release too; according to their blog, the "Spirit" jailbreak - the underlying technique of which was demonstrated within 24hrs of the iPad WiFi's launch at the beginning of the month - will be made public "at some point after" the iPad WiFi + 3G going on sale.

The Daily Slash: April 29th 2010

The Daily Slash: April 29th 2010

Today, for all intents and purposes, was a big day. Maybe not as big as yesterday, but it's pretty close. Especially if you consider the two cancellations, with the HP Slate getting tossed to the side, along with Microsoft's Courier digital journal. A sad day for the tablet market, indeed. But, we move on, forward unto . . . Well, whatever it is you're heading into. Either way, welcome to the Thursday edition of the Daily Slash. In the Best of R3, we've got the LG Aloha getting a name change, iAd takes a steep turn in the price bracket, and Palm may be ready to face a class-action lawsuit. And then in the Dredge 'Net, looks like Valve finally hit a release date for Steam on the Mac, the app thing gets out of hand, and Verizon gets a new netbook.

HP Windows 7 Tablet Gets Canceled, We Hope for webOS Tablet Instead

HP Windows 7 Tablet Gets Canceled, We Hope for webOS Tablet Instead

Apparently tonight is not a good night for tablet devices. Though, if you were to ask a few people, it may still continue to be a very good couple of days for Hewlett-Packard. After the announcement that HP had bought Palm, suggestions of an HP Slate with webOS started coming left and right. It doesn't help when HP is telling the world that tablets are definitely on the agenda. And now, word is that HP has killed the Windows 7 tablet project, better known as the HP Slate (which debuted at CES this year). Coincidence?

Shanghai Corporate Pavilion’s Lights Are Controlled by the People Inside

Shanghai Corporate Pavilion’s Lights Are Controlled by the People Inside

How do you make a huge pavilion awesome? You create the building out of recycled CD cases. So, what can you do to make that better? You attach a huge LED array onto the outside of that said pavilion, and you make it just about as bright as is probably necessary. But of course, you have to do more than that, because then that's just a building with some lights on it. That happens all the time at Christmas. Thankfully for us, the designers of the Shanghai Corporate Pavilion have, indeed, made it better.
