LucidTouch – now your other fingers get to do something too!

LucidTouch is an interesting concept that just seems like it would have a pass or fail type of learning spike. Essentially you get the touchscreen on the front you are used to, the one you use your thumbs on, and then via either a rear mounted camera or some other sort of touch sensor, your other fingers get to help out from the back.

Boynq Alibi Review – Cute and Fun Webcam-Speaker Combo

When they can fit a webcam into a milimeter-depth notch in a laptop's screen bezel, a manufacturer would have to be offering something pretty impressive to sell one standing eight inches tall on your desktop. But Boynq are positioning their Alibi unit as something more interesting than a simple way to video chat with your parents; it may be a 1.3-megapixel webcam with integrated speakers and microphone, but what you're really paying for is the design. Like some monstrous limb cinched in with the brushed-finish silver volume band, the Alibi's selling point is its pop-up, twist & rotate camera. SlashGear braved vague and unsettling memories of War of the Worlds and put the Alibi through its very purple paces.

Ping Pong Webcam from Brando

This gadget single-handedly makes me weep for the human race. Yes, I saw Balls of Fury, yes it was absolutely hilarious, but I think a ping pong webcam is just too, too far.

CES 2008: Toshiba demo Spurs Engine – PS3 Cell CPU in Qosmio laptop

Toshiba have taken the Cell CPU usually found in a Sony PS3 and put it into a concept Qosmio G45 laptop, giving the machine a total of six processors (the original Core 2 Duo is still there, plus the four 1.5GHz synergistic processing elements in the Cell) and the ability to perform high-complexity visual tasks in real-time.  The system is then able to upscale 640 x 480 video to 1080p via heavy-duty image processing in a mere three hours (whereas a normal Core 2 Duo machine would take 24), use the onboard webcam to recognise and translate hand gestures to control the laptop, and even trawl through stacks of video identifying common faces and building playlists from recurring actors.

Ustream links families for the holidays

Nothing is more important than family during the holidays. It’s often a time of depression for people who are without someone dear to them. We all need hope, family and love around this time and that includes the soldiers who are out there fighting and can’t be with us at home.
