01/20/2012, Sony Ericsson is no more, but that does not mean ghosts from the past cannot visit the present. It seems that previously unreleased photos of a prototype from Sony Ericsson was revealed, where this smartphone ran on the Windows Phone 7 operating system. Now, we all know that Sony Ericsson currently plays nice with Android and has not released nor announced a Windows Phone 7 device to date, but it […]
12/30/2011, It would appear that Apple’s interest in touch technology when it comes to phones may have started as far back as 1983. A prototype of such a device was recently uncovered and apparently it dates back to 1983 and was designed by none other than Hartmut Esslinger, who was also the founder of Frogdesign, the same company that went on to help design several of Apple’s products back in the […]
12/13/2011, Interested in a personal mobility robot like the Segway? If you are, Honda has take the wraps off their prototype, the Uni-Cub which appears to be an improvement over last’s year’s U3-X. Much like the U3-X, the Uni-Cub allows the rider to steer the vehicle in the direction of their choosing by moving their upper body or operating it via a joystick control.
11/14/2011, The concept of pico projectors is an interesting one, although it’s probably a piece of technology which isn’t for everyone. However researchers from the University of Duisburg-Essen, Germany, have come up with a pretty novel concept of using a pico projector together with a smartphone that enables the sharing of data whilst on the phone.
10/28/2011, We do know that there are plans afoot for an electric version of the classic DeLorean DMC-12 coming your way – sometime in 2013, actually, according to the Texas-based DeLorean Motor Company. Perhaps that day might just come earlier than what most would have expected, as an electric prototype of the DeLorean has already been taken out for a spin – I wonder how close that will be to the […]
10/26/2011, At Nokia World 2011, Nokia showed that it can think out of the box with a very interesting prototype demonstration. Called the “Nokia kinetic device”, it features a flexible display that gives users a brand new way to interact with a mobile device. Instead of the usual touchscreen tapping, swiping, and pinching, the Nokia kinetic device works by being twisted, bent, bowed and tapped. A very interesting concept if you […]
10/25/2011, Yesterday we reported on rumors that an Apple TV was indeed in the works. This flurry of news surrounding a television set built by Apple seems to have stemmed from a quote from the recently released biography of Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson. The quote suggested that Steve Jobs may have finally come up with an Apple TV, and the rumor suggested that prototypes of the product were already in […]
10/24/2011, Last Friday we reported that based on a quote found in Walter Isaacson’s biography of the late Steve Jobs, it appeared as though Apple could finally be producing a television of their own, which is not to be confused with the Apple TV, but an actual television set.
10/13/2011, While we’ve looked at how the wonders of miniaturization have turned the Roland iModela iM-01 into an extremely small 3D printer, here is the Origo 3D Printer that might change the way the world works. Still in the prototype stage, the Origo 3D Printer was specially designed for kids, letting their imagination run free so that they can design and churn out their very own toys. Developed by Artur Tchoukanov […]
10/10/2011, The world first learnt of a 3G MacBook Pro prototype in August earlier this year where it was spotted on eBay, subsequently pulled off and finding its way back to the Apple headquarters in Cupertino. I guess that is only fitting, and the person wasn’t as tough as Brian Lam of Gizmodo when he was personally contacted by Steve Jobs to return the lost iPhone 4 prototype that was lost […]
10/03/2011, Earlier at the CEATEC pre-tour show, a rather interesting gadget by NTT DoCoMo was spotted. In essence it’s basically a battery pack for your smartphone, much like Mophie’s Juice Pack and other external battery cases, but the kicker here is that this battery pack supposedly charges full in 10 minutes.
10/03/2011, In the market for a notebook that’s not only thin but apparently foldable? If you are, the good news is that NEC may be putting into production such a notebook in 2013, and here’s the kicker – instead of running on Windows or going the ASUS route with MeeGo as its choice of platform for their portable notebooks, this NEC notebook will instead be running on Android.
09/27/2011, While we’ve already heard that the official iPhone 5 announcement will be next week on October 4th, that doesn’t mean people aren’t going to guess and speculate about the phone until then. According to the folks at MIC Gadget, it looks like the “teardrop-shaped” iPhone 5 is the real deal and should be either the iPhone 5 or the iPhone 4S. They reported that the folks at Foxconn managed to […]
09/16/2011, There has been plenty of rumors surrounding the iPad 3 and how it would be seeing a release this year. This makes little sense considering this move would upset tons of iPad 2 users who rushed out to buy the iPad 2 when it launched, and even waited when supplies ran short due to LCD issues from LG Display, who is one of the display manufacturers for Apple’s iPad. Not […]
