This Incredible Fake iWatch Ad Is A Holographic Dream Come True

First, The New York Times came out with a report claiming that Apple is experimenting with designs for a wristwatch-like product. The Wall Street Journal soon followed suit. Later, Bloomberg chimed in, saying that Apple already has a team working on the device. Then, last week, the discovery of a certain patent application strongly hinted at the device. And now, we have this amazing ad for Apple’s long-rumored iWatch.

Made by YouTube user FinalCutKing, the so-called ad, whose video is embedded below, shows an iWatch concept that looks straight out of “Minority Report.” In the video, the lovely Courtney wakes up to the holographic alarm of her iWatch on her bedside. If you can’t see the video embedded above, please click here. Later, she consults a map with it as she sets out for a jog. Far-fetched? What do you think? Via: Mashable. Buddy crowdfunded smartwatch claims a battery life of 10 days. One of the challenges smartwatch makers face deals with the tiny batteries that power these things.

Buddy crowdfunded smartwatch claims a battery life of 10 days

That’s why Bluetooth Smart (or Bluetooth 4.0) technology is so great. It consumes only a fraction of the power required by previous Bluetooth implementations and can wake up devices nearly instantaneously. Enter Buddy, a crowdfunded Bluetooth smartwatch with a claimed battery life of as much as ten days, or an impressive two weeks on standby. Besides telling time, the Buddy also relays notifications from your iOS, Android or Windows Phone devices, lets you control music playback, place calls, receive and display data from your device like turn by turn navigation, display your media like pictures and more… The team is asking for $320,000 to build the first run. Here, key features: Mind you, this tiny smartwatch features a two-inch capacative color touchscreen and packs in eight gigabytes of flash storage. Here’s a photo of a black Buddy variant. And a black Buddy next to a white iPhone 5. Show Your Creativity With a 3D Pen. Say you had a goal.

While I’m still personally waiting for the rumored Apple iWatch to make an appearance this year, The Verge’s Joshua Toplosky has an interesting, hands-on look at the Google Glass project.

Not Surprisingly, Google Glass Will Be Compatible With The iPhone

The entire, comprehensive piece is definitely worth a read. But probably the most interesting news, at least for Apple fans, is that the wearable computer will be compatible with the iPhone: The device gets data through Wi-Fi on its own, or it can tether via Bluetooth to an Android device or iPhone and use its 3G or 4G data while out and about. There’s no cellular radio in Glass, but it does have a GPS chip. Google has also recently released a teaser video of the Glass experience. Toplosky said his time using Glass was very similar to the video: Let me start by saying that using it is actually nearly identical to what the company showed off in its newest demo video.

Google is hoping to officially bring the product to market sometime this year for less than $1,500. Is it ready for the everyone right now? Electromagnetic Harvester claims to charge batteries with ambient energy. The handheld Electromagnetic Harvester allegedly charges a AA battery using just the electromagnetic fields given off by gadgets, power lines, vehicles, and even living things Image Gallery (6 images) We're surrounded by electromagnetic fields almost everywhere these days.

Electromagnetic Harvester claims to charge batteries with ambient energy

Just because they're almost imperceptible doesn't mean they can't be used as a source of energy though. One student in Germany recently built the Electromagnetic Harvester, a small box that allegedly charges an AA battery using just the electromagnetic fields given off by the likes of power lines, vehicles and electronic gadgets. View all Dennis Siegel, a digital media student at the University of the Arts in Bremen, designed the handheld charger as a way to recover some of the energy from these electromagnetic fields. According to Siegel, using the harvester involves simply holding it up to anything with an electromagnetic field – a cell phone, a coffee maker, a commuter train, etc. Source: Dennis Siegel About the Author.

Cassette Conversion Gadget Ports Songs To iPhone

I kept them in tidy racks on the wall and even dusted them off about once a week in order to keep them nice and clean. The cases usually got scratched pretty easily, and we’d all keep switching our favorite cassette’s case with the one that looked new and shiny. If I remember right, we could even buy new cases to switch out our old ones. What did you do with your cassettes? Where are they now? There are not very many conversion solutions available for old mediums like the vinyl and the cassette these days. This nifty little device called The Cassette To iPod Converter is what every cassette adventurer should have in their possession.

It’s not particularly expensive either. Via: [Gizmodiva] How to Set Up a Personal Hotspot with the iPhone. Posted 09/04/2012 at 8:03am | by Hollin Jones You might be wondering: "What can a hotspot do for me?

While the struggle for supremacy between iOS and Android is typically fierce on all fronts, one of the biggest battles is bound to be fought over the future of 3-D interactive map technology.

Just days before Apple’s WWDC Maps app announcement, Google stole some thunder with its own update preview, bringing sophisticated 3-D mapping into the Google Earth fold. Still, the search giant’s methods — and results — are a bit different from Apple’s beta product, and the jury’s still out on which brand is wielding the most cartographic expertise. Fortunately, Jeff Benjamin of iDownloadBlog has some insight on the subject, and he’s put together a massive missive to underscore the surprising answer: So far, Apple’s winning the Map Wars.

Here’s Jeff’s video comparison explaining why: Statistically, Apple is leading Google in the support category, featuring full 3-D maps of 26 cities on three continents to Google’s 13 on two.
