The Segway

Photo of the segway
When I first heard of the Segway, I never for a second believed it would catch on like it has. What is a Segway you ask? Powered by an electric mortar, the Segway is a two wheeled vehicle which us used standing up. All across the US and many other countries people are using the Segway as their intercity vehicle either to commute to work, or just to get from place to place.

Having personally had the chance to use the Segway this summer I must admit, I’m impressed. At first glance, the Segway looks very awkward with only two wheels and a small platform to stand on. Part of my original skepticism was the issue of being able to properly balance and keep from falling over. However due to their dynamic stabilization technology, balance is almost no issue at all. Within minutes, I was comfortable and secure enough to cruise the streets of Toronto.

NASA World Wind

NASA Cloud Cover
This is cool. Google recently let us have the excellent and free Google Earth, which is great fun and also an educational tool for young and old alike. I often sit down with my daughter and fly around the world planning the next dream holiday.

NASA are probably as well known as Google but probably don’t have quite the same sort of marketing muscle but their World Wind application could well be better than Google Earth and best yet both of these programs are free

Portable DVD Player

A couple years ago I remember walking into my local Radio Shack and seeing a portable DVD player. It boasted high resolution and a sleek compact design plus all the features you would find while sitting at home in front of your Television. The only thing it didn’t have was a reasonable price tag. Even just a basic unit started at $700 with high end models almost twice as much. I remember saying to a friend, ‘just wait a few years, the price will drop to half as much.” As it turns out, I was right

The Nintendo Revolution

Living in an online world, it seems everyone has “the inside scoop” on the new Nintendo console. Members of blogs and vido game forums are saying everything from holographic imaging to new methods of image processing where a developer could create hyper realistic vistas at a fraction of the current processing cost. However, the bottom line is, with limited facts, speculation is rampant. This creates plenty of bogus hype and misinformation.

Over the past few months Nintendo have slowly been releasing bits of pieces of information, just enough to keep the hype alive. So far it looks like the new console will not be as powerful as the new Sony Plantation 3 or even the Xbox 360. Yet, until the actually “official” specs are released by Nintendo, we can only speculate.
