Oh, why does Samsung tease us with this transparent flexible tablet video?

by Mark R

Yes, Samsung puts out a lot of interesting electronic products, and I believe that the company has been developing a flexible OLED display. Rumor has it that the company will unveil this in 2012, but I’m guessing this won’t be at CES. What I see in this video after the jump is something that is pretty amazing, and I want to see it working as soon as possible. For gosh …

Honda’s Micro Commuter concept car can be controlled with a smartphone

by Mark R

I’ve been seeing some nifty concept cars lately, like Toyota’s Fun-Vii. I’m not certain whether or not Honda can beat a car with touchscreen displays on the inside and outside, but the Honda Micro Commuter concept car could be it. The Honda Micro Commuter does have interchangeable panels that insert in the front and sides that allow users to customize how their cars look with a 2D graphic pattern. Another …

Glass keyboard and mouse: Handle with Care

by Mark R

Kickstarter certainly has a lot of terrific things that I would love to see on the market, and this one looks like something that Apple would try to put out. This is designed by Jason Giddings, and it uses Frustated Total Internal Reflection (FTIR) technology with an embedded camera to pick up infrared light reflected off the inside walls. I’m not certain what that means, but it is to insure …

All I want for Christmas is the Toyota Fun-Vii

by Mark R

Toyota has created one of the ultimate concept cars, and like most concept cars, I doubt there will be many copies of this on the road. This is the Fun-Vii, and it is the best combination of a smartphone and a car that doesn’t end with a flattened mobile device. In case you can’t tell by this picture, the Fun-Vii has touch-sensitive displays that can show all sorts of colors, …

Displair allows for images to be displayed and manipulated on a fogscreen

by Mark R

I probably should be talking about what deals are going down on Black Friday, but honestly, there are just way too many doorbusters. I would rather take some time on the day after Thanksgiving covering some cool new technology like the Displair. The Displair is essentially a projected display that shines on a “curtain of cold fog” instead of a wall. Not only that, the user can interact with the …

Pico-Projector phone, to use or not to use?

by Mark R

I always try and keep my eye out for the latest in mobile technology. Considering that we communicate through email and texting, technologies that we didn’t even really conceive two decades ago, I can’t help but wonder how we will communicate by the year 2031. How about cell phones with pico-projectors? They already exist, so why not make it so you can communicate via projected screen? This comes in handy …

Frauenhofer Institute’s robot spider

by Mark R

We have reported on robots that can search through rubble before, such as the Omnitread. Generally, these types of robots are snake-shaped so they can fit into narrow crevices. This robot from the Frauenhofer Institute in Germany is arachnid in shape, but it is essentially the same thing. These eight legs are all on hydraulics, and four of its legs on the ground at the same time. As for the …
