T E C H N O L O G Y – SONY’s new A4 tablet

April 15, 2017

Despite the countless new note-taking devices that technology throws at us, there’s something about the tangibility of putting pen to paper that makes us not want to let go of the writing tools we know and love the most. until now, no ipad, laptop, or smartphone has managed to electronically recreate the experience of writing. With that being said, SONY have set out to create a digital alternative to replace the piles of a4 sheets currently littering our desks, that still creates the same satisfying sensation. enter the large DPT-RP1 e-paper tablet, already the world’s thinnest and lightest digital device, measuring just over half a centimeter in thickness and equipped with a high-res electronic paper screen.

The e-paper tablet is the successor of SONY’s first digital paper device, the DTP S1. following customer feedback, the new device is designed to take the concept of an e-paper display and turn it into a device that actually looks and feels like a sheet of paper. SONY shed pounds from the device to make it even more lightweight, and adds a newly-developed non-slip panel onto the e-ink screen to give the same sense of resistance as writing on real paper.

The usability of the DPT-RP1 is designed around the writing experience, with the home buttom and micro USB terminal conveniently placed at the top of the device, to stay out of the way of the user’s hands. even the back of the device is finished to a texture that feels exactly like paper. the A4 tablet can hold about 10,000 PDF files, making it equivalent to the biggest notebook you’ve ever owned. the combination of a newly adopted electrostatic capacitance type touch panel system and a rechargeable stylus pen even allows detailed writing to the edge of the screen, just like a real sheet of paper.

In the future. SONY wants to continue with its mission to make paper obsolete by creating a ‘digital paper collaborative server software’ that will allow companies to send forms straight to the e-paper tablet, saving any need to print and fill them in by hand.the DPT-RP1 is set to be released on june 5th 2017 in japan.

Pong is Being Rereleased

March 20, 2017

PONG-Full-Size-Coffee-Table-new
Pretty much everyone has a coffee table in their house and pretty much everyone loves Pong, so a group of Uruguayan engineers have taken advantage of that overlap. They’ve brought Pong into the physical world, removing it from its previous pixelated build and building a physical, playable version into a coffee table. Like the original Atari game, the Pong paddles are moved by two large wheels on either side of the table, while the ball’s movement is enabled by magnets under the surface, and an LED panel at the top of the board keeps score. When the game is over and it’s time for more traditional entertainment, two covers flip over the wheels and the LED panel turns into a clock. The table can also stream music using Bluetooth and power up to four USB chargers. It comes in four color schemes, though we’re partial to the classic, with the old Pong logo and grayscale lined design.

T E C H N O L O G Y : STAR WARS DARK SIDE COLLECTION 2

November 22, 2015

Screen Shot 2015-11-22 at 16.49.11
Pulling inspiration from the Empire’s black-suited pilots, the Imperial Pilot collection features custom hour and minute hands inspired by the Imperial Pilot’s helmet ventilation system and subtly placed Imperial logos. It’s the intricacies that you may not notice at first glance, but can’t be ignored. The collection is inspiring as Nixon pay attention to details. It’s the design details on the bezel and pushers, dials and bands, the color applications and storytelling references that bring to life the unique characteristics only found in the STAR WARS | Nixon Collection.

T E C N O L O G Y : Polaroid Instant Print Camera

September 7, 2015

As much as we love the images that come out of our DSLRs, or the convenience of our phone cameras, there’s still something to be said for the instant print gratification that we remember from the days of Polaroid. Recalling the whole point, shoot, print experience isn’t going to be that difficult anymore because, like all things retro, Polaroid is back with a new instant camera that they’re calling Snap. Designed to merge the nostalgic Polaroid experience with modern technology, Snap saves images shot with the 10MP camera onto a Micro SD card (up to 32 GB) then prints them onto 2×3″ prints using ZINK Zero Ink Printing Technology. You get to keep or share the physical prints, but also upload any pictures for sharing without having to find a scanner. Snap will be available later this year in black, white, red and blue.

T R A V E L : Connected pedal protects bicycles from theft

January 19, 2015

Connected-cycle-anti-theft-pedal_dezeen_468_1

CES 2015: a bicycle pedal that can notify the owner if their vehicle has been moved was launched at the Consumer Electronics Show this week.

French startup Connected Cycle revealed “the first ever connected pedal” prototypes, with built-in global positioning systems (GPS) that could prevent bikes being stolen, at the Las Vegas event recently.

When linked up to a smart device via the internet, the equipment sends the owner a notification when it detects a change in location.

“This new high-tech equipment instantly notifies the bike owner if the bike is moved, and allows it to be located at any time,” said Connected Cycle co-founder Jean-Marie Debbasch. “It is also able to locate where the bike was last parked.”

The pedal automatically records the rider’s speed, route, incline and calories burnt on every trip – without the need for carrying a phone or tablet on the journey. These statistics are stored on a digital cloud system and are accessed using the Connected Cycle app.

The pedals will be sold in pairs, with one featuring the technology and the other designed to match aesthetically.

Aluminium cases protect the internal electronics, while the foot pads come in colours including black, red, blue, green and orange.

Installing the pedals onto an existing bike requires no mechanical skill and can be completed in less than two minutes, according to the designers. The pedals can only be removed using a special coded key possessed by the bike’s owner.

Connected Cycle is currently seeking investors and considering crowdfunding to bring the pedals into production later this year.

August 10, 2014

OK some say we only post cool looking products, which is true, but when they look cool and perform even better then everyone’s a winner.
The suction on these little speakers are major making sure they stay put whilst sounding good.

Compatible with ISO/ANDROID/WINDOWS just have wireless or bluetooth and you can send your music to these brightly colored babies (we have ours in the shower). If you are streaming say iTunes or Spotify you can also control the output directly from the little pods and take a call – genius.

Simple to operate and it packs a kick too: holding the skip track forward down increase the volume, to turn it off completely – hold the on/off bottom down till you hear the single tone and keep holding till you hear the goodbye tone… Now there is no excuse to not dance under water!

May 26, 2014

Untitled 2

Marblue, the company best known for their smart device accessories, has introduced ‘headfoams’, the world’s first all foam, mono-body set of headphones. Crafted from a single piece of EVA foam, the same material used in synthetic wine corks, the nearly indestructible and shatterproof headset eliminates the use of moving metal parts and mechanisms. Although the ‘headfoams’ are designed specifically for children ages 3 and up, they fit most heads, which feature extending ear pads made of soft foam-filled polyurethane fabric.
