HaloIPT Wirelessly Charges your Rolls-Royce?

We covered the HaloIPT system last fall. If you weren't clicking links, it's a wireless battery charging system for electric vehicles. Just park over the induction pad and the system will charge the batteries on your electric vehicle. This is the same kind of technology like you're seeing in the Energizer Qi and a host of other inductive charging mats for your wireless devices. Rolls-Royce recently unveiled the 102ex Phantom experimental electric vehicle at the Geneva Auto Show and it apparently comes with the HaloIPT. Rolls plans to use the car to start a debate on whether or not full-electric vehicles are the future of luxury automotive.

Qi wireless charging standard finalized; first products could drop fall 2010

Wireless charging is one step closer to cross-platform ubiquity, with the news that the Wireless Power Consortium - which counts among its members such manufacturers as Nokia, RIM, HTC, Samsung and LG - has finalized the Qi charging standard.  Defining a technology capable of wirelessly funnelling up to 5W into a mobile device, the new standard will hopefully mean an end to fumbling with microUSB or proprietary chargers, and instead having a single platform on which multiple devices can be rejuiced.

Nokia hops aboard wireless power bandwagon

Nokia hops aboard wireless power bandwagon

One of the things I always hate the most when my cell phone needs charged is that I know I will end up crawling around under the desk trying to find the cable to plug my phone in. I was so glad when WildCharge came out with a wireless charging solution for the iPhone and gladly gave up my charge and sync port to never have to plug in a wire again. There are lots of companies seeing the potential of wireless power and one of the latest to take up the cause is Nokia.

Kodak wireless OLED digital frame now available at Amazon

Kodak wireless OLED digital frame now available at Amazon

Just in time for holidays; the first of its kind, World’s first OLED powered Kodak photo frame with on-the-air connectivity is now available at Amazon. If you have a deep pocket here’s what you’ll get for a dollar shy of a grand : a thin profile 7.6-inch WVGA screen with incredible vibrant color, 180-degree viewing angle and 30,000:1 contrast OLED sensations, Wi-Fi connection for streaming photos from pc or photo-sharing sites; news, sports, weather reports from Framechannels , 2GB storage memory, and video and music playbacks.

One thousand dollar price tag for a digital photo frame at sub 8-inch is a big sum of money to spend; but the Kodak is a bleeding edge photo frame with OLED screen and an industrial’s first touch-frame control system, it’s touch sensitive too. It requires no backlighting support and Kodak even throws in a dynamic ambient light sensor to automatically adjust screen brightness according to room conditions. That and no color shifts with its brilliant viewing angles worth the asking price for the rich and wealthy.

Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ Review

Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ Review

As big as a Note 5, and arguably the most eye-catching smartphone in Samsung's line-up, the Galaxy S6 edge+ is hard to ignore. Curved AMOLED, top-tier specifications, and beautiful construction butt heads with a hefty price tag and questionable usefulness. In short, though the S6 edge+ undoubtedly catches the eye, it's far from certain that it does enough with its unusual hardware to earn a place in your pocket.

Intocircuit 11200mAh portable battery mini-review

Intocircuit 11200mAh portable battery mini-review

Though they take up little space in your bag, a portable battery is a godsend for frequent travelers, or for those times you end up being away from a charging station longer than anticipated. A portable battery is only as useful as its ability to charge your phone, however, and there's one big downside with most portable batteries: you can't see how much charge they have left, or you have to guesstimate using a few LED indicators. Enter the Intocircuit 11200mAh battery -- it has a built-in display showing the percentage of charge left, among other things.
