12/30/2012, For the past few years we have been waiting for a functional Android camera, something that we deem to be “unavoidable”, so we were very glad to see Samsung launch its Galaxy Camera at IFA in Berlin in September. One of the previous attempt was released by Polaroid at CES 2012, however the design was far from being good enough, and much needed to be improved (design, performance, optics, Android […]

12/07/2011, One of the reasons Intel has been pushing the ultrabook standard pretty hard is due to the recent increase of tablet adoption. With laptops starting to look more bulky compared to a tablet, Intel wanted a happy middle that would give users the power of a laptop with the portability of a tablet. Now according to Digitimes’ sources, it seems that ultrabooks may be taking it one step further with […]
10/07/2011, Hospitals can be rather drab and dreary places, although to be fair no one said anything about these places being bright and cheery either. Well perhaps to shake things up a bit and add a little bit of “magic” to the place, Obscura Digtial (the company famous for the YouTube symphony orchestra and a 26-story high projection on Coca-Cola’s HQ) will be bringing some of that “magic” to the health […]
10/03/2011, If you’re not too fussed about what sort of platform your phone runs on, and you just want something affordable, Verizon has just announced the Pantech Hotshot, which by all accounts looks like a feature phone with a touch screen display. However like said, if you don’t really care about platforms or you’re looking to try out a touch screen device before deciding on a platform, the Pantech Hotshot should […]
09/29/2011, Watches with touch screens aren’t exactly new. There have been concepts drawn up in the past, and even the latest iPod Nano can double up as a watch with touch screen capabilities, but now it looks like Swatch, the popular watchmaker, has hopped aboard the bandwagon and officially announced their Swatch Touch series of watches. Doing away with traditional buttons, the Swatch Touch will instead feature a touch screen LCD […]
09/22/2011, It was just yesterday that we reported on how a man created his very own 23” Android tablet which has been dubbed the “MegaPad”. If you thought that 23” was big, Crunchy Logistics’s Padzilla case for iOS may cause your eyes to widen perhaps by 3-7 times.
07/08/2011, When it comes to architecture and designing, having a wide work desk will be instrumental in helping you draw out designs and blueprints. However if having piles of paper on your desk, or rolls of blueprints sounds too messy, then perhaps this concept interactive drafting desk by A’s dream might be something you could look out for in the near future.
02/10/2011, Ever wonder just how large a touchscreen display can get? How about 33 feet? That’s measures to around 10 meters if you’re chugging along to the metric system, and to make matters more interesting, this touchscreen display is curved and put together by some boffins from the University of Groningen. A trio of computers will handle the touch detection, while another one processes all the incoming touch input. Relying on […]
01/24/2011, We’ve seen the evolution of flat screen TVs moving from an inch slim to just a few mm – changing its face from LCD to LED in the process. Of course, it also didn’t hurt that the bezels of such TVs ended up getting thinner in the process as well. The same cycle seems to apply to touchscreen displays, and if what a 3M spokesperson has to say about it […]
01/05/2011, [CES 2011] “3D, thinner, more connected, better performances” is Samsung’s moto at CES this year and the new UND8000 3D LED HDTV is one of the great example in the Samsung’s product lineup.

03/10/2010, Check out this Dell Mini 10v that has been hacked to include a touchscreen display instead of the regular one, giving you access to its icons with but a single tap instead of double clicking. Using an $85 kit from Hoda, it is unfortunate that none of the cables packaged with the display would work with the Mini 10v’s innards, so it required some tinkering on Weathejx’s part to get […]
