This little robotic arm comes as a kit that requires some assembly, but once its done you get this badass robotic arm. It can pick up a maximum of 100 grams, it grasp items up to 1.7-inches in diameter, and even has an LED light for night time use.
If you travel a lot, especially internationally, you probably already know that burglars in other countries are either more abundant, or more ingenious, so staying in a hotel, regardless of the number of locks on the door, can be risky business. Well, the Folding Door Guard aims to address this issue in a portable manner.
This little device extends out, grips on the floor at the bottom, and forks itself around the door knob to make sure that door doesn’t move. However, if someone is capable of moving, or worse yet, breaking the tube-steel gadget then hopefully the 120 decibel motion sensor alarm would deter them or at least make them reconsider.
This little glider can power itself for months on end, well, at least its movement could be powered by itself. It still needs battery power for all the electronics inside that make it useful, but it can use the oceans warm upper layer and cool lower layer to move.
For those of you bored with the Neo 1973 hardware, OpenMoko is back with the Freerunner. It has 2D and 3D graphics capabilities, a 500MHz processor. There is also WiFi, and motion sensors, god knows how those’ll be used.
So the Wii comes out and everyone all of the sudden like working for the win in their games. Well, 3DV is jumping on the bandwagon with a motion sensing camera for your PC so you can use real time moves in your games.
You guessed it; this pen is a DVR that has Bluetooth. It also has a microSD card slot. It has an audio detection mode too, so it knows when to start recording, and it’s designed to work in low-light situations. It can even send an alarm signal if motion is detected.
No, it’s not a DVR in the sense that your new Media Center PC is a DVR, this one actually has a camera and microphone built in. of course there is also a motion sensor, so its clearly not made for use by the standard person, and judging by the company’s name, its probably for spy operations.
Do you frequently get inspired with an idea or something of that nature but never have a pen or paper to write it down on and know you’ll never remember it? Well this probably won’t help, but it’s a pen (that you’ll probably lose) that you can use to write on any surface, and it will record the motions and convert them into handwriting on your computer.
There is an electronic sensor in the tip that records all the movements to some sort of storage, probably flash, in the barrel of the pen. So basically it sounds like a slightly more adult/advanced version of the kids version that recently came out to help you with your homework and all that jazz.
Toshiba is mighty proud of their new SpursEngine processing chip, and they should be, its pretty amazing technology. Its based on the same Cell technology at the processor inside your PS3.
They have two really cool products that they were demonstrating at CEATEC this year, one was some sort of real time facial editing, such as being able to change makeup and hairstyles on the two models sitting in front of the camera. That’s kind of cool, but not all that practical except maybe in the movie industry. But installed in one of their Qosmio laptops, I am sure all those YouTube users and MySpace whores could find a use for the technology.
So if you are paranoid you might want to hop on over to Hack-A-Day to see the GSM based motion sensor alarm they’ve recently posted. Essentially what happens is when the alarm is tripped, during a certain time period, it calls someone.
Now who that someone is would be up to you, but I would recommend the police. At the very least you yourself should be on the call list.
Looks like Motion Computing got a little fed up of Samsung catching all the headlines with the launch of their Q1 Ultra UMPC, and have decided to hit back with an upgrade to their compact LS800 Tablet PC. Already straddling the line between full-sized Tablet and cut-down ultra-portable, the LS800 has been available with a choice of pen or touch screens, and now Motion are expanding the range with a solid-state hard-drive.
