The future keeps on coming… In 2009 Panasonic killed the Technics SL-1200. A month ago, Hasbro gave the original Easy Bake Oven under a year to live because of the forthcoming ban on incandescent bulbs (though you shouldn’t worry too hard, there will be a replacement version that uses a heating element).
Now, fitting news as the release of the iPad 2 is imminent. Microsoft is killing off the Danger Sidekick. It was always an interesting device, ahead of its time, and was the first true consumer cloud-based smartphone that wasn’t a Blackberry.
Looking to up the size and write speed on your compact flash card? Sandisk has just announced a whopping 128GB capacity card, with 100 mb-per-second write speed. Available in a couple of months under their “Extreme Pro” moniker, they will cost you an equally whopping $1500. For now, you can get one of these.
There are lots of smaller 3D cameras coming out of the Consumer Electronics Show this year, and mostly it’s a race to the bottom in quality and prices. Sony’s entry will likely offer slicker build quality – along with 1080P full HD. Available for preorder now: the 3D Bloggie Touch MHS-FS3.
It’s in the toy aisle for a reason, so keep your expectations low and you might find some utility in the EyeClops mini projector‘s 60-inch image projection size. RCA inputs give you major flexibility to project a variety of video sources… and I’d like to point out that it’s on sale today for $30.
A dedicated, high excursion 6-inch subwoofer driver and two 6-inchcoaxial drivers deliver full range sound with a bold, retro look. An innovative equalizer gives your music a visual heartbeat, while touch-sensitive buttons give you simple and intuitive control. Digital data streaming allows premium audio decoding and playback while charging Apple iPod and iPhone devices.
Inputs include USB, 3.5mm and auxiliary ports that let you connect an iPod, iPhone, smartphone or USB flash drive. You can even plug in your guitar or microphone and mix with other music sources.
The Glif for iPhone 4 is a handy tripod mount for your device, originally conceived on kickstarter (hence the promo video, since it’s now actually for sale). It makes for easy mounting when you want to capture photos or video without any shakiness, and doubles as a stand for video or facetime use.
If you recognize that plug, you know it’s an OBD interface for your car’s engine. What’s that black box, you ask? It’s Innovate Motorsports’ 3831 OT-2 OBD-II Wi-Fi Interface – which transmits engine diagnostics via Wifi to your iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad, displayed on the free LogWorks Mobile App (after the jump). You can even directly wire in other sensors, such as air/fuel ratio or temperature, and yes, you can use it to wirelessly reset those “check engine” warnings.
Jambox from Jawbone was designed by Yves Behar and will be available November 14th for $199 at Odin. You can pre-order direct from Jawbone as well. What do they do? They can “wirelessly receive audio signals and phone conversations from laptops, smartphones, and other Bluetooth-enabled gadgets.” On top of that they look really cool.
There’s either something going on in Ft. Greene, Brooklyn or this thing gets wacky when it is in direct sunlight. For the uninitiated, NukAlert is “is a patented personal radiation meter, monitor and alarm. Small enough to attach to a key chain, the device operates non-stop, 24/7 and will promptly warn you of the presence of unseen, but acutely dangerous levels of radiation.”
Axsotic’s 3D “mouse” bridges the physical disconnect from the virtual world of modelmaking with a truly tangible, seemingly natural input device. Seeing it, I struggle to believe something so obvious hasn’t already been available on the market…
