  • Real Voice-to-Voice Translator, It's Atsui (Hot)!

    Who knows how many lives this new Japanese-to-English voice translator will save at sketchy sushi joints? Developed by Sharp and IBM jointly, the PalmPilot-looking handheld listens to what you say, translates it, then “speaks” it back in Japanese. I certainly hope it works well, as comedic mishaps based on poor translations aren’t funny if they’re happening to… Read More

  • CombiMouse: Apply Directly to the Forehead

    Ergonomics are hot. I could use a little ergo myself here in the dungeon I call an office. But maybe this is stepping over the line a little. It’s some sort of split keyboard , proudly tested by Wichita State University, that looks like a a pachyderm got ahold of a Logitech and shat out something that looks neither comfortable or usable. Hey, what do we know. Maybe Wichita knows something… Read More

  • PS3 Causes Sony Stock Drop

  • BlueAnt Wireless Realizes People Like Color, Adds to Bluetooth Headsets

    I like the BlueAnt X3 Bluetooth headset: It’s small, lightweight, connects to three devices at the same time including your Windows or Mac PC for VoIP calls, and it’s reasonably priced at $69.

    Here’s a video of the Dyson Airblade in use, drying your hands and killing all sorts of British germs. Suzy from Shiny Shiny demos it for us, showing how it dries your hand like the car wash dries your car. The one thing we found kind of disgusting is the bowl of water everyone needs to stick their hands into in order to get their hands wet to test the drier. That bacteria-killing… Read More

  • Elvis Was a Hero to Most, But That Doesn't Stop me From Downloading the Sun Sessions

    A charming little video by the Futuristic Sex Robotz who seem to be upset by some sort of “copy protection” on music. I suspect they’re just angry because they don’t have big record deals like Nelly Furtado and don’t get to be taken both from behind and the front by rapacious contacts.

  • PS3 Reveals Herself to Pasty Geeks, We Are Jealous

  • Haier Black Pearl Cell Phone

    Made by Haier, the Chinese company mostly known for Air Conditioners and various other cheapy home appliances, the Black Pearl looks as wide as around two human fingers, and just about as long.

  • Nintendo Wii Racing Wheel Video

    Nintendo hasn’t given out too many details on the Wii racing wheel, but this video gives you all the basic information. The Wii racing wheel, which doesn’t have an official title yet, is more of a tray for your Wii remote. Like the video states, there isn’t any circuitry or new technology in the actual wheel.
