Finis Swimsense watch tells you about your swimming

This is the Finis Swimsense wrist-worn performance monitor, and it is made for swimmers.

It has some sort of internal motion sensors, and I cannot believe how accurate they area.

Apparently, the Finis Swimsense can detect how many laps that you took, and what pace that you took them at. It can even calculate how many strokes you took to get there, and what you were doing. I guess your arm reacts differently when you do the breaststroke, as opposed to the freestyle, backstroke or butterfly swimming. This is provided you enter in the proper information about the pool like its length and such.

The Finis Swimsense will also show you how many calories have been burned after you get out of the water.

U.bo Pet Robot

Take a look at this particular Virtual Pet known as the U.bo. I’m not certain how to pronounce the toy from Taiwanese electronics company Phison, but it certainly can do a lot.

I realize that you might not be able to read the print from an image I took that was clearly larger, but let me list out the features. It has a 121 pixel LED screen that can display emotions and actions. There is some sort of “advance emotion display” as well as a “multi-touch sensing system”.

Apparently, you have to keep your U.bo fed with cookies in order to keep it in a good mood. This allows the U.bo to belch, pass gas, and do all sorts of things that Furbies can do.

Show your virtual girlfriend a good time at Atami

This photo is being taken at a hot springs resort known as Atami, and this man is having his picture taken next to his virtual girlfriend.

Yes, this man is playing an extended version of the Nintendo DS game Love Plus Plus. The players of this game must keep their virtual girlfriends happy by throwing them birthday parties, going out on dates, etc.

Atami seems to be targeting their Love Plus Plus package as some very odd way of letting people spend time with their virtual girlfriends. There are about 12 spots at Atami with these augmented reality markers, and this one is a large pine tree known as Omiyanomatsu, a famous tree in a novel The Golden Demon by Koyo Ozaki.

Kodak has brand new all-in-one printer



Kodak has just announced their latest line of innovative All-in-One (AiO) Inkjet Printers, which is the ESP 9250. No, this model will not come with Extra Sensory Perception, but is instead a low cost ink system that does not compromise on results, making it one of the better value-for-money prospects out there in the market. After all, the Kodak ESP 9250 printer comes with Kodak’s proprietary pigmented inks which are capable of delivering brilliant colors and permanence to last a lifetime – subject to certain conditions, of course. Their ink system will offer a significant fade resistance advantage over other ink systems, particularly the dye-based ink systems used by the majority of consumer inkjet manufacturers. Needless to say, Kodak highly recommends the use of their own ink and photo papers for instantly drying prints that will not smear and are smudge as well as water resistant, we’ll leave it to you to decide.
