Solar chargers , a revolutionary idea just a few short years ago, are popping up everywhere. We’ve featured dozens, maybe even 100 on this site to date. But none of them offer the simplicity and intuitive design of the Window Socket . The brain child of designers Kyuho Song & Boa Oh, this nifty gadget is exactly what it sounds like: a tiny portable solar panel on one side and a traditional socket (albeit a European one) on the other. Combine that with the ability to stick to any type of glass window and BAM!
It's relatively easy to get something big and heavy to fly. With enough equipment, it's possible to load the object with lots of energy to power the flight, specialized parts to control it, and the computers (or people) needed to direct the flight. But things get challenging as you make things smaller, and it gets harder to squeeze all the requisite parts into an ever-shrinking space.

Could 2013 bring with it one of the biggest revolutions in mobile phone design since the advent of the touchscreen? If the growing rumors surrounding flexible displays are true, and that one of the major manufacturers will release a device with a bendable screen next year, then yes, we could see the start of a huge trend. While flexible smartphone screens will be new to most of us, the technology has been around for some time, and is already in several devices; you just may not realize it. A decade of hype Reports of companies developing flexible displays date back more than a decade, with a startup named Universal Display being linked with their development in 2002 . Universal Display is now at the forefront of research into OLED screen technology and the creator of the panels used in Samsung’s Galaxy S2 and S3 smartphones.
Perfect for lectures and meetings, Livescribe's Sky WiFi pen records audio alongside written notes. Alice Truong reports. Technology, bah; some people say nothing quite compares to flipping through — not swiping — pages and writing on paper. But we're here to say the two aren't mutually exclusive, as evidenced by this week's tech picks. iNotebook
Seeking at least a quarter of a million dollars in project funding on Christie Street , a company called Edison Junior has developed a wireless doorbell called DoorBot that transmits an audio and video feed over Wi-Fi when someone rings the doorbell. The homeowner will be able to see who’s standing at the front door and communicate over audio to find out what they want. However, there’s no video display on the DoorBot. The person standing at the front door can’t see where the homeowner is located. Conceptually, it can provide the illusion that the home’s resident is currently in the house even if they are at work or on vacation. For instance, if a delivery driver is dropping off a package, the resident could use DoorBot to let the driver know that the package can be safely left on the doorstep.

out 30 Escrito por iLex , às 13:48 - 30 de outubro de 2012 Já é comum encontrarmos amplificadores para iPhone e iPod touch que se utilizam da rede Bluetooth ou Wi-Fi para tocar músicas do aparelho. Mas estas tecnologias, apesar de serem muito boas, tem sempre um fator limitador. Ou o bluetooth precisa estar pareado com o acessório, ou o aparelho precisa estar na mesma rede Wi-Fi do amplificador, o que requer ajustes prévios.
How cool would it be to own a rug designed to look like the moon? That is just one of the many cool gadgets and accessories that companies have cleverly designed to look like everyday objects. Continue reading to see more. 5. Fork Cable Winder It's a pain when your desk is cluttered with cables and the only way to neatly organize them is with zip ties.
I’ve been looking for an easy way to solve a growing clutter problem in my home. You might have a similar problem in your place… It’s that towering stack of magazines that have at least one article that you want to save for the future. It might be a recipe or instructions for some project you plan to do.
A new jailbreak tweak was recently released, and it allows you to use a Bluetooth mouse and keyboard on your iPad or iPhone. Although it may seem inherently wrong to choose mouse control over touch control, it’s a killer tweak for writers who prefer to use an external Bluetooth keyboard. Sometimes I use a Bluetooth keyboard to type documents with Pages , and it always throws me off a bit when I have to reach out and touch the screen. I’ve found that having a mouse along for the ride makes composing an article much easier. Take a look inside, as I delve into the features of BTC Mouse & Trackpad on video…
Lockitron has just outed a new cellphone-controlled keyless entry system, sporting a raft of new bells and wireless whistles. The WiFi-connected product mounts over your existing deadbolt "in seconds," according to the company, and lets you or those you trust control your lock from anywhere in the world by SMS or the internet. You can also unlock your door in person without lifting a finger if you have an iPhone 4S or 5, as the Lockitron will sense your approach using Bluetooth 4.0 -- a feature that may extend to NFC and Android devices in the future, too. To top it off, the system can notify you when a friend or relative returns home, and it has a knock sensor to let you know if someone's come by to visit.
by Edwin We have seen our fair share of portable scanners in the past, and I do admit that these little buggers come in extremely handy. After all, we do intend to move towards a paperless society, and with the number of receipts as well as business cards that one needs to keep track of each day (being busy little bees and all), having a portable scanner makes plenty of sense. You need not have to figure out just what kind of stuff you will need to throw away in order to make more room for a new collection of receipts and documents that you think are important. Just scan both sides of a receipt, stash the receipts away, and when there is no more room, recycle those – after all, you still carry a digital copy with you. Well, here we are with yet another option for those who are in the market for a portable scanner – the IRIScan Express 3.

Conforme as gerações iam passando, cada vez com processadores mais potentes, este início foi ficando mais rápido, chegando ao iPhone 5 que é por enquanto o mais rápido de todos.
