Inspected Gadget: Microsoft Kinect

Previously known as “Project Natal”, “Kinect” is Microsoft’s answer to Nintendo’s Wii and gesture-based gaming in general. It doesn’t involve holding a controller, so according to the linked article it’s got Minority Report-like potential – along another neat ability like recognizing another player “jumping in” to the game.

UPDATED June 15:

Coming out towards the end of the year November 4, price rumored to top out around $150.

Also, surprise! The XBOX 360 Elite “Slim” is now officially shipping.  Let’s hope it’s quieter than the jet engine roar of the original. Looks snazzy.

More ALPA Magic

We first showed you our friend Ruedi’s ALPA camera back in April, now the Swiss Camera gods are making news (be it from February) again in the form of  a collaboration with Swiss design studio Estragon.  Estragon designed a new handle for the ALPA 12 TC, which from their words sounds amazing, “Only when the photographer will forget the camera in his hands will he be able to absolutely focus on his activity: The Photography.”

We love you ALPA, keep being The World’s Best Camera Ever.

tiny wooden speaker for your gadget

Lately, I have been using my first gen iPhone as a portable radio/remote at home. The sound quality from the built-in speaker is not so good. Most of the time I put it in a corner to use the wall to create better acoustics. This little speaker from Motz might do the trick and it’s made out of wood and sports an fm radio as well as a usb to recharge the lithium. All for $49.00
