Toshiba ZX900 CELL TV - 3D HDTV with PS3 power

Toshiba have been showing off the Toshiba ZX900 CELL TV at CES 2010. The ZX900 has been so over-stuffed with features it’s difficult to know where to start! But I’ll give it a go 🙂 First up, the clue’s in the name – CELL TV, which features the CELL Engine processor, a variant of the […]

Kodak have unveiled the Kodak Pulse, a nifty photo frame that wirelessly connects to the Internet and displays pics from Facebook or Kodak Gallery. Of course, it’ll also display pics from an SD card like every other digital photo frame, but its social media features give it an extra dimension that lets it act as […]

Alereon NoWires media extender

Watching videos on your laptop is fun. Watching them on your giant 50″ HDTV is better. Much better – it’s what you bought the TV for! Unfortunately, getting your laptop to stream YouTube clips onto your PC has been a nightmare. You can do it farily simply with a simple HDMI connection, but that involves […]

Sony's Cyber-shot DSC-G3

This camera has everything; the picture even has a snazzy “web2.0” reflection. Manufactures have been adding features and gizmos to mobile phones for years but this could be the first sign that cameras are going to get the same treatment. We have been moving towards the one device to control them all for sometime but […]

SanDisk Sansa slotRadio

SanDisk showcased a rather usual mp3 player at the Consumer Electronics Show this year. It is called the Sansa slotRadio, priced at around $100 and doesn’t have its own internal memory to store the music.

3D vision with the Orb

Orb

Unlike like the 3D televisions being tested by Sky, the Orb doesn’t require you to put on funny looking glasses to view in 3D. Ok so the Orb is not anything like a television and the resolution is not great but anything that could take your finger off if you poked it gets my vote. […]

New Dunkable SD cards, what more could you want?

Posted by in Miscellaneous
Waterproof Elecom SDHC

It must have been a strange day in Elecom’s offices when they were brainstorming the next big feature to add to their SDHC cards and someone piped up that the cards should be waterproof, and not only that, they must be able to handle a depth of 1meter… stranger still everyone must have agreed because […]

How to create creepy speakers

Munny Speaker

A little while ago we wrote about the SpeakerBuddy which reminded us of a cowering child with a hoodie (not sure what that says about our state of mind) but kitting out your Hi-Fi with little people shaped speakers can be a bit on the pricy side. With the recession looming we all need to […]

Flip Mino: the next craze in tiny camcorders?

Posted by in Gadgets, Portable Gadgets
flip mino

Looks can be deceiving, this stylish little number may have the appearance of a remote control but the simple design hides a camcorder with 2GB of memory (enough to record an hour of standard VGA video). Once upon a time people wanted their camcorder to have all the bells and whistles that money could buy […]
