HorodronHD-01 Concept Watch Features E-Ink Display

HorodronHD-01 Concept Watch Features E-Ink Display

Extravagant watches are becoming a normal, every day occurrence. With companies like Tokyoflash creating some of the most unique, and hard-to-read watches out there, it's good to see that some future watches will still be able to tell us time in a more direct fashion. The HorodronHD-01 concept watch focuses more on the aesthetic appeal of its design, instead of beautiful lights to grab a potential customer's attention.

SlashGear Morning Wrap-up: November 30 2010

SlashGear Morning Wrap-up: November 30 2010

You sassafrass you, NOOKcolor! Last night we spoke about how NOOKcolor had been rooted and presented to you the final chapter in our "A Week With" reviews of that device, but what's this?! I snuck another one in on ya! A Week with NOOKcolor: The Missing Link – Viewing Manually Loaded Books and What a Root Means for the Future. Then there's news about how NOOKcolor saved B&N's butt financially this year, and the iPad responds with a magazine - it's got TRON on it! Maybe not a direct response, and I know it's released by Richard Branson, but, you know, but I don't think iPad is worried about the B&N competition. Then we've got some Farmville news and some NASA news about what might be aliens - this expressing the range of information we present here at the R3 Media Network. ALL THIS AND MORE on the SlashGear Morning Wrap-up!

A Week with NOOKcolor: The Missing Link – Viewing Manually Loaded Books and What a Root Means for the Future

As you may well know if you've been following especially closely, we were supposed to be FINISHED with our review of the NOOKcolor - the final word was just laid down earlier today, right? It went by the name A Week with NOOKcolor: 3rd Party Apps and Final Wrap-Up and spoke of everything that was outside the hardware and the reading experience. But what's that? You say I've forgotten to talk about reading books you've downloaded from sources outside of Barnes and Noble? And wait, what happened at basically the same time that post was posted - a root? Let's talk!

A Week with NOOKcolor: Reading (aka Core Apps)

A Week with NOOKcolor: Reading (aka Core Apps)

Welcome to the second installment in SlashGear's "A Week with" review session with NOOKcolor, a device which Barnes and Noble promises will be for customers the culmination of all their knowledge on how people interact with what they read. This device is a reader-centric tablet, made by the world's largest bookstore for the people who enjoy reading the most. Today's review session revolves around the way you the user will potentially interact with the reading materials you'll be using while utilizing NOOKcolor. As this device is aimed not at those who wish for an open Android tablet experience, this review will for the most part assume that the people who will buy this device are the same people Barnes and Noble intends to market to. On the other hand, I and we know there's a large population of tech-smart individuals out there who indent to try this device out as a hacked device. While I won't be hacking into this device for your pleasure, we will be keeping you in mind.

Disposable E-Paper on the Prototype Tip

Disposable E-Paper on the Prototype Tip

So you're totally tired of all the old ways. Books? Useless. You're not into the whole "retro" thing, and you want people to know that you're on the cutting edge. The technology edge. So what do you think that heavenly next thing is? How about some disposable e-paper? University of Cincinnati electrical engineering professor Andrew Steckl decided he wanted that too. So what did he do? He demonstrated that electrowetting works on a paper substrate just as well as it does on glass. What's that mean? It means there's going to be some e-paper on paper.

A Week with NOOKcolor: Hardware

A Week with NOOKcolor: Hardware

Welcome to a super amazing extended review of the brand-spanking-new NOOKcolor. Let me begin by assuring you that the name is "NOOKcolor" all one word rather than "Nook Color" as I'd originally assumed in posts of the past. Then, let me let you know that this is not the first multi-post review we've done of a bit of gear - search for the term "A Week with" - our most recent project being the HTC HD7. Now we move on to this NOOKcolor, Barnes and Noble's full-color eReader, on its way out on the delivery trucks as we speak, just in time for the holiday season. This first post we'll discuss a bit about the hardware - how the item feels, works, and functions in the real world.

University of Cincinnati Researchers Create Zero Power Display

University of Cincinnati Researchers Create Zero Power Display

While companies try to figure out ways to pack in more pixels per inch, as well as deliver resolutions that make crystal clear images, there is still a strong push on the other side of the spectrum: offer up color and video, all with a low power consumption equivalent to e-ink. A group of researchers at the University of Cincinnati have unveiled a project seven years in the making, announcing the creation of a new electrofluidics display.
