Secure Streaming Video on Phones the Future of the U.S. Army

Secure Streaming Video on Phones the Future of the U.S. Army

Today deputy program manager for Army unmanned aerial systems for the U.S. Army Tim Owings said that the Army is committed, or rather, remains committed, to the Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS), which is a main mean for disseminating video images to the battlefield. This project is definitely underway, but wont see field operation until 2014. However, rapid advances in encryption software and other technology developments in recent years could mean smaller-scale self-contained 4G networks could be the answer for troops seeing streaming video images on their phone in about two years from now. Think of the implications!

Sagemcom RM50 WiFi radio suggests stations it thinks you’ll enjoy

One of the problems we've had with internet radios in the past is that it can be pretty overwhelming trying to sift through the many thousands of stations on offer, meaning we tend to stick to the same old channels.  Sometimes, we even find ourselves missing the analog days of spinning an FM dial.  Sagemcom's new RM50 internet radio claims to fix all that, with a "Smart Random" button that automatically picks a different channel for you based on the type of stations you listen to most often.

Moshi Voice Control Digital Clock Radio Makes Waking Up a Lot Harder

There has to be a fine line between our alarm clocks getting smarter. Or, maybe not smarter, but rather easier to control. Because, we don't know about you, but the only way our alarm clock wakes us up, is if we have to get out of bed to turn it off. Then again, there has to be something said about an alarm clock we can talk to. And, even better, that does what we tell it to do. We love our voice commands, after all.

Gesundheit Radio sneezes away the dust [Video]

Gesundheit Radio sneezes away the dust [Video]

One thing we didn't see when we visited Texas Instruments last week were the fruits of the company's Attenborough Design Group, the experimental research group who, in 1972, designed this Gesundheit Radio.  Of course, that's probably because there was no such group; the radio - which incorporates a set of bellows and sneezes periodically, so as to remove dust from the sensitive microprocessors - is actually the handiwork of design student James Chambers, who felt a comprehensive back-story could only help his project.

WiFi radios have fallen to a price point where you have to be pretty DIY-obsessed to bother making your own rather than picking one up off-the-shelf, so we're all the more impressed by Gary Dion's effort.  Starting from an ASUS WL-520GU wireless router, he threw in a USB audio adapter and a VFD display together with a custom enclosure to match the rest of his A/V setup.
