The mouse for you mobile phone is what these guys are calling their prototype. You place your camera on a base, show it a marker and it will follow you. Watch the cool video below. Now excuse me while I continue to slam the palm of my hand on my forehead.

Below is a link to the original webpage I found the product.

Very cool RETRO iPhone case

by on Sep.10, 2010, under Apple, Around the Web, Technology

This actually pretty cool.

Someone took an old unused Newton, hollowed it out and fitted it for an iPhone.

I’m not sure how great that would be — that old case is probably a little smaller in size than a VHS tape…you remember those?

The reason I know the size of the Newton is because I actually have one, thanks to my buddy Jim who gave it to me as a birthday present oh…so many years back. And it still works.

I think the case would be just too big to carry around and Newton stylus wouldn’t work as input device for the iPhone either.

Regardless, it would be cool to see the reaction on people’s faces when they see you whip this puppy out BUT even more fun to see the reaction of people that actually know what a Newton is/was!

Most people forget the Newton was one of the first PDAs (Personal Digital Assistant) that crashed horribly and soon the Palm came onboard.

I remember taking mine to work and having to reply to the many questions about my device,

“What is that?”

“A Newton.”

“A what?”

“A PDA.”

“A what?”

“An electronic Franklin Planner…”

“Ohh! I get it now!”

sigh…

Got my Geek on…

by on Aug.12, 2010, under Humor, Technology

My Cool WatchAt least my watch that is. Most of you know how geeky I can be but this watch is a god-send for someone as “vain” as I am. See, I’ve had to start using reading glasses this past year.

All normal I’ve been told.

But a good friend of mine, David Gunn, showed up one day with this KUEL watch. It was an iBeam. It didn’t look like mine but it had the same characteristics. It had a an easy to read dial and a maginfying glass built right into the crystal. This way if I didn’t have my “cheaters” while reading a menu, I could flip up the crystal and “voila!” I’m in business.

I bought one soon after.

It also had another cool feature. An LED spotlight. And  this sucker is bright. You push the orange button and this powerful little LED illuminates the darkest of hallways (no zombies there) or a map to find your way out of the (horror) house (with zombies).

Yeah, my imagination in over-drive again.

Most of my family just roll their eyes when I show them my watch, “Of course you have that watch. Why wouldn’t you?” They smile. As I do. Oh and it has a compass too. See it? Plus it has dual time zones, a stopwatch, countdown timer, blah, blah, blah.

I’ve had this watch for about 2 years now and the LED battery finally died. So I took it to this jewerler by my work and after three days I got my trusty Gizmo back with 3 new batteries – yes 3 – one for the watch, two for the LED.

I’m giddy again and armed with the power to vanquish any zombies lurking in the shadows when I go to bed…plus I can tell what time it is in Germany (Jim).

Yes, my adult human night light.

ooooo…I want one…

by on Aug.02, 2010, under Around the Web, Creativity, Film making, Technology

Only $65 bucks for your “eye in the sky.” Hmmm…I could use this. Plus is look just too cool. Check out the video. I also posted the link below from the website I saw this on – I frequent the page daily.

Of course, they haven’t shown it crash to see how durable this thing is like but c’mon, it’s an AirHog. My son had one and we crashed it numerous times.

Now, I can practice on this little baby until I work my way up to this one…yeah right. But cool video shots.

Awesome video:

You just can’t beat simplicity

by on Jul.28, 2010, under Apple, Around the Web, Technology

I don’t know if you’ve heard, but for now you can print from an iPad. Well, leave it to a simplistic solution. Made me laugh. From a blog I visit frequently. See the link below.
