I should write this in Fashion.3Yen because it is part of accessories but, it’s not just accessories. This PC security ring is more than meets the eye. It won’t transform into an autobots though but the wearer of the ring will be notified if there is a breach on their PC. This security ring consists of a base station that is tied to your PC, so as soon as you wonder off a certain proximity, your PC’s base station will be notified and all your files and programs will be securely locked, until you get back. So if there is anyone snooping around your work station, they can’t really do much.
Office espionage much anyone?
This is a pretty cool tool to have around. You don’t have to wear it, I know it’s bulky, just put it in your trouser pockets or your handbag geez :P
The ring is not out yet, what you see in the picture is just a prototype.
You can read more about it at SlashGear.
If you have a mom or dad or grandparents who are computer savvy or is getting quite savvy but has a problem with reading small prints, this Large Print Keyboards is the answer!
The keys on this keyboard has large prints on them making them hard to miss. I really think it’s kinda cute. It is USB connected with PS2 connections too. THey come in 3 color combinations, white, black and black with yellow keys.
You can get one for your loved ones, or yourself from first Street :)
A Japanese company, Thanko, has created a keyboard for
sirensilent typing. I guess it would appeal to places like the library or a house with a finicky baby. The Silent Keyboard is layed out with silicon spring that produces about 60db, a sound our ear cannot catch I would assume, as compared to 30db that a normal keyboard produces.
The funny thing is, the product code for this Silent Keyboard in Thanko is Siren. Hence, the puns above :P
It’s on sale now for $33.17, oddly numbered but hey…if you order it now, you’ll be able to give it as a father’s day gift :)
The keyboard with OLED display underneath every key is set for a pre-pre oder date. A creation from Art Lebedev Studio, Optimus Maximus is worth $1564. That’s enough to buy a new laptop with lots of frills.
Anyway they have added a countdown time to the pre-pre-order date.
The company set a ship date for the first 200 keyboards at November 31st of this year, with 200 more rolling out in December, and 400 more in January, 2008. The designers are attempting to be completely transparent about their development schedule, but that countdown is also to the time when we can finally see a description and detailed specifications of this expensive keyboard.
I have a feeling that despite being so very expensive, I think it’s going to be selling like hotcakes. Novelties like these, they never fail to work really :)
Luv Machines are coming to Japan. It’s not anything kinky, you guys..it’s just a new BTO (build to order) PC that’ MCJ is offering. The The Lm-iS220BH, Lm-iS320S and Lm-iS421X is an affordable computer that will not burn a hole in your pocket with when it’s only going from 275€ (375$) to 490€ (670$). And they look good too..who needs multiple colors when they have black and/or white…it’s classic and will never run of our trend.
Btw, do not expect any high end, powerful dual core processors. This is as basic as it gets and it is worth every penny you pay for. But, to give you an insight of what you will be paying for, you can expect to have a Core 2 Duo E6320 on the top version and Celeron D331 for the first price. Other equipments include 1GB RAM, DVD DL burner, XP Home or Vista Home Premium.
Here’s a pen that looks like an ordinary shick pen but it is in fact also a scanner. This is perhaps the closest thing out in the public consumerism market that’s from a movie set. Really. Remember those spy movies and mission impossible movies where the main character scans a bunch of document using a pen like scanner and once they’re done they just clip it over the breast pockets like it’s just another pen.
This is the DocuPen RC800 Color. I’m going all Wow-ed about it :P
It scans a full page of graphics and text in just 4-6 seconds. Ladies and gentlemen, this is definitely an certified novelty from a scanner the size of a pen. There two versions to this DocuPen, one is the more expensive RC800 at $299 and the other is the RC700 at $99, which is rather affordable for students.
Creator of the DocuPen is by Planon.
Wave if you want vision and sound. This speakers hail from the land of the rising sun, yea Japan. It’s particularly useful if you have it in your bedroom or workstation as you jsut need to wave your hands upwards and/or downwards for the volume.
It also comes with an FM station so if you’re bored u can tune in to your favorite station. Of course, this mini thing may be the rave because of it’s novel, don’t expect a sub woofer standard when you wave your hands up, up, up…each speakers are only 0.7W. It comes in two colors, black and white and can be run with AA batteries. You can also plug it to your main sound system too if you want but I don’t knwo why you would want to do that. Use it with your laptop, Apple iPod, DVD players as well as other MP3 players.
For $100, it’s quite worth it. Check out their Product Page.
This is not a watch,obviously, this is the world’s thinnest 2,500 lumen projector. The projector is 43-mm (1.7-inch) / 1.7-kg (3.7-pounds) XJ-S46 projector blasts 2,500 lumens for ¥268,000 (about $2,263). The XJ-S36 brings the same form factor but drops the brightness down to 2,000 lumens for ¥238,000 ($2,010).
Projectors I used to know was bulky and heavy. This one looks like it could fit into a suitcase and carried along to meetings and what not. The Casio XJ-S46 also comes with a USB port for functional friendliness with a computer. Whoopie. Everything’s USB these days. There are also two other models to choose from, the XJ-S41 and XJ-S31 configurations. You’re going to have to ask others what those XJ numerics means.
Another USB invention that is nifty and useful. The USB Microscope allows your take macro pictures of things around your computer desk. The picture quality is excellent as you can zoom in on the speciments you collect around your house. Hey, you could even make this an interesting gadget for learniing with your kids. Let them see how many legs a fly has up close x200. They’d be intrigued or be really scared, if it’s the latter then your kid might need to desensitized a little in this violent world. Sigh.
The USB microscope is $179.99 at THINKGEEK.
Hitachi Deskstar 7k1000
This 3.5 inch, vertical drive is the first for Hitachi. The Deskstar 7k1000 has perpendicular recording ability allows for more storage space. The price of the drive is pretty reasonable too. For $399 you’ll get 1 terabyte of diskspace (or exactly 931.5GB) that means you can store all your movies, music collections and pr0n stash if you have any all in one single drive. Performance wise, the guys at Anandtech said that it could rival the Western Digital’s Raptor, which has a 10,000rpm, and storage space of 150GB. Hitachi’s has 7,200rpm and a SATA interface.
I suggest waiting for the price to drop and buy two of these harddisk so that you can create a mirror for backups. So if you lose 1 harddisk (they sometimes fail for no reason) then u have another one to back it up.
