ANYCOM Introduces FIPO to Bridge Bluetooth Technology and Apple iPod

ANYCOM Introduces FIPO to Bridge Bluetooth Technology and Apple iPod

FIPO enables the use of a mobile phone to listen to music, in one of the most popular places, the car. The device uses Bluetooth technology and streams audio to the car stereo system. To use, simply plug FIPO into the connector designated for an Apple iPod, and it will begin its search for paired devices. After auto-pairing, the devices will have exchanged control commands, like play, pause and next. This allows the user to control the mobile phone in the same way they would control the iPod while in the car; through buttons on the steering wheel or car stereo.

iPod hi-fi systems or speaker systems dock specifically with the iPod and stream tunes to wherever it is in use. Now, instead of an iPod the FIPO can be plugged into those speaker systems and receive audio streams from any Bluetooth device.

Mass production of this product in the United States and Europe will begin February 15, 2007 and will be available for an MSRP of $99.00.

RoboSapien + Wiimote = Fun Times

Robert Oschler of Robodance.com has made the Nintendo Wii remote work with the RoboSapien robot that is made by WowWee. Oschler is the programmer behind the RoboSapien Dance Machine (AKA RoboDance) piece of software, which at the moment allows you to control the robot using your own voice.

Above is a video demonstrating some of the abilities of the software working with the RoboSapien. The programmer has noted that it will be released on or by February 1st 2007. The software works on Windows XP and had been awarded by SourceForge in May of 2005.

Recently many mods have been made with the Wii controller including the ability to play Half-Life on a Mac with the controller (a double mod, because you also need another mod to run Half-Life on Mac), and talks of a ‘Wiibrator’.
