Bose SoundDock II at CEATEC

10/02/2008, [CEATEC 2008] The Bose SoundDock II digital music system was shown as a “new” item as CEATEC. It’s an introduction without fanfare, as it is “just” an iPod speaker/dock after all. As you might suspect, there’s not a...

Pioneer shows 400GB, 16-layers Blu-Ray disc, but there is a catch

10/01/2008, [CEATEC 2008] Everybody loves having more storage space, right? You can just keep dumping your stuff without taking the time to sort things out, which is why the storage business is still going so strong. Having a 400GB optical disc seems like something...

10/01/2008, [CEATEC 2008] I spotted this 3D display on the first day, but my initial photos were not good enough, so I decided to go back. The idea is to have a 3D display that can work without glasses (not convenient in the street). To achieve that, KDDI is using...

Fujitsu’s ultimate train simulator is not for kids

09/30/2008, [CEATEC 2008] I don’t know if you remember that PS2 train-simulation game called Train Simulator Real (see video), but this is kind of like that, except that Fujitsu is using 1080p real-world footage instead of 3D graphics. It is meant to be...

Toshiba Media Server Concept Looks Awesome

09/30/2008, [CEATEC 2008] First of all, this media server is a concept – not a commercial product (how unfortunate!). It was part of a Toshiba demo about how the telephone, the media server and a TV (with wireless HD) could interact. The media server...

IOData Mini Keyboard (Hands-On)

09/30/2008, [CEATEC 2008] We’ve talked about the IOData mini (Bluetooth) keyboard back in May as it seemed to be a cool companion for your cellphone. However, there’s nothing like a good hands-on… In the real-world, the keyboard looks much...

09/29/2008, [CEATEC 2008] We spotted this stereo-video demo just before going to lunch: using two consumer-level cameras (to simulate left+right eyes), Nedo can create a stereo image that looks better than anything that I’ve seen before, including the...
