The Daily Slash: April 19th 2010

Did you make it through your weekend all right? We certainly hope so, because we're glad you could make it here tonight for the newest Daily Slash. Tonight, in the Best of R3, we've got a Motorola flip phone that runs Android, the iPad's got two different ways to find out if you dunked it in water, and finally a phone that's become a reality. And then, in the dredge 'net, we have a chandelier made of OLED panels, a suspended transit train, and then presumably more bad news for Palm.

NeoView KOLON T-OLED Display Makes a Great Heads-Up Display

NeoView KOLON T-OLED Display Makes a Great Heads-Up Display

We've seen our share of heads-up displays (HUDs) in the past, but they just didn't seem to fit the bill. After all, flashing LEDs and reflective plastic don't make for the perfect accessory to put on your windshield. Thankfully though, we're always one step closer to blurring the line between science fact and fiction, and NeoView KOLON is taking us one step closer with their recently showcased T-OLED screen.

Toshiba TG02 and QWERTY K01 pack 1GHz Snapdragon

Toshiba have outed two new smartphones at Mobile World Congress 2010, and as expected they follow on from their TG01 Snapdragon-based Windows Mobile handset.  The Toshiba TG02 is the most obvious successor, a 9.99mm-thick handset with an expansive 4.1-inch capacitive WVGA touchscreen and a 1GHz processor; the Toshiba K01, meanwhile, has the same 1GHz processor with a 4.1-inch OLED capacitive touchscreen and a slide-out QWERTY keyboard.

Stream modular computing concept Locus OS video

Industrial designer Barton Smith's Stream modular computing concept isn't especially new - though we're still yet to see truly modular PCs as he envisages - but what we he hasn't shown us until now is the Locus OS that would run on it.  Designed, Barton Smith says, prior to webOS, Android and iPhone OS 3.0, Locus OS is an activity-based platform which organizes widgetized desktops around locations (such as the kitchen or office) and activities (such as travel), flicking between them based on GPS and WiFi mapping.  What we like about it, though, is just how clean, slick and natural the whole thing looks.
