Anyone got an idea where SII might've looked to get "design inspiration" for their DB-J990 electronic dictionary? No? Well, I'm sure the Sony VGN-UX50 is blushing right about now. But aside from flattery through imitation, does the J990 hold up? To be fair it's not just a dictionary; it also has the Mobipocket eBook reader, an mp3 player, supports Word, Powerpoint, PDF and HTML documents.
Thing is, something like this could cause a whole lot of embarrassment. You whip it out while at the local Starbucks, wanting to look up the meaning of "monopoly", and a curious crowd gathers wanting to see Sony's minor-miracle. Imagine their surprise - and its rapid descent into disgust - on realising it's most certainly not a UX50. Expect bruising and jeers.

Currently hand-made in three different designs, each with leather inlays and metal highlights, they not only look good but also incorporate the standard features of optical sensor and scroll wheel. Apparently made from "materials traditionally used by NASA and other space agencies", they come in a custom presentation case.

This is something for those who thinks a $100 Gameboy Micro is too expensive. This similar looking One Station costs about $40 in a Filipino electronic shop offers all the 8-bit Nintendo game all on the gaming machine and you wouldn't expect that 32-bit quality games you normally play on your other Gameboys. Take a look.
To innovators envisioning the Internet of Things, wherein everyday devices operate on a wireless, interconnected network, component size and battery life are incredibly important. This self-powered camera was created by a team of scientists from Columbia University, and the prototype may pave the way for future cameras to charge themselves as they capture images, negating the need to a battery pack or charger at all. They claim their discovery is the first self-powered camera that can harvest energy as it takes pictures.
