Art Lebedev Optimus Tactus keyboard concept

Marantz Unveils a 6-in-2-out 1.3 HDMI Switcher

The complexity of Digital Content Protection and Hi def audio found in most high definition content only allows full scale of 1080p video, HBR or uncompressed audio via HDMI output in certain devices. That usually results in having inadequate I/O interface to anticipate high bandwidth media if you have more than a handful of a/v gears such as Blu-Ray player, HD-DVD player, HD DVR, SACD, etc. Marantz has a neat 6-in-2 output hdmi switcher that’s 1.3 version certified to ensure its compatibility meet the most demanding Hi-Def media in the market.

So according to the table below if you have x amount of Lithium or Lithium Ion in your gadget’s batteries you can’t take them with you. But that’s not even the best part, the best part is that this isn’t a security concern…. Wait for it, until January 1st 2008!


Hacao Classmate PC lands in Vietnam

With a 7” screen, its own version of Linux, 1GB of flash storage, a 900MHz processor and 256MB of RAM it has landed in Vietnam for the low, low price of $250, if you are a student. The screen has an 800×480 resolution and the system has a 400MHz bus, I also left out the 802.11b/g WiFi that is stuffed in there somewhere.

Sudokube – Sudoku + Rubik’s Cube

I love Sudoku, I own about four electronic versions and keep several play books around for amusement. I’m surprised I like it so much since I hate math and numbers with a passion. For any other Sudoku lovers out there who are looking for a new twist on the game, the Sudokube maybe just the thing.


DIY Mouse, dubbed Soap, works in midair

I really like the idea of this wireless mouse which also works midair. It’s a do-it-yourself gadget, which means I won’t get it since I’m not any good with that stuff.


Panasonic announces thinnest internal Blu-Ray drive

Even though the competition between Blu-Ray and HDD is still going strong, everyone has to remember one of the biggest factors in most people’s mind is actually size. The smaller/thinner a product is the more likely people are going to go nuts over it. Panasonic kept that in mind.
