FPS Mouse for GAMERS

FPS Gun Mouse

If you’re the type of gamer who blames your low Counterstrike ROF on your mouse not being enough like a ‘real gun,’ you might be interested in this FPS Gun Mouse, which features dual triggers in an ergonomic, gun-like grip. The thing at the front end is a 2000dpi, 1000hz USB optical mouse, so you’re not losing any functionality, and may in fact be gaining some with the 5 programmable buttons and thumb scroll wheel. My only worry would be getting overexcited and picking the whole thing up… How awesome would it be to combine it with one of these? The other problem is, it’s another right-handed conspiracy gadget. Sigh. Yours for $73 from Korea.

Turn your Camera Phone into Mouse

Now this is rather weird, but researchers have successfully come up with a way to make your cameraphone function as a mouse - whenever you’re not receiving or making a call, naturally. This software relies on Bluetooth technology to keep it going, and enables the cell phone to interact with public displays. For example, users can obtain product information or purchase tickets simply by using the camera. Unfortunately, this idea still requires a great deal of work before it is ready for a commercial release since the image capture and image processing rate on the cell phone is rather slow, and you have to deal the with the lag.

Flying Stick Camera - Aerial Surveillance

Flying Stick Camera

Everyone either made a whirlybird out of paper or had a wood/plastic toy version when they were a kid. The concept was pretty simple. Rub the stick body of the whirlybird between one’s hands and toss it up into the air (the paper version was merely dropped from on high). Using auto-rotation, the whirlybird would land under its own control anywhere from a few feet to several yards away. It was a fun toy for the helicopter pilot in all of us. Now, (thanks to our friends at Yankoo Design) one designer has taken that whirlybird concept and created a camera platform out of it.

Flying stick Camera 2

Dubbed the “Flying Stick Camera,” it uses kinetic energy built up by rubbing the stick together between one’s hands like it’s smaller toy variant. The difference is that the Flying Stick Camera stores that energy and actually flies up into the air like a helicopter. When the energy is dissipated, it auto-rotates back down to the ground. Meanwhile, while it’s soaring high above one’s head, the Flying Stick will snap off an array of digital shots at a preset interval. And with face detection built into the digital design, the subject is always in focus.

No word on resolution, price, or when we all can get one, but this is certainly a design that’s more toy than functional camera platform, but there’s nothing wrong that. It keeps the fun in digital photography.

Insignia Packs Virus along with its Digital Frame

We hate it when this happens: A computer virus is attached to a gadget (Insignia Digital Frame) during the manufacturing process; the item is sold throughout America in one of the biggest retailers available (Best Buy), and then, after the big holiday season, it's found that many of them will trigger a crash-happy Trojan in Windows-based computers when they're connected via USB. Not great.

Insignia released a statement on January 19th, oddly labeling the virus on their 10.4" frame (model number NS-DPF10A), as an 'older virus . . . easily identified' by some of the latest versions of popular anti-virus software such as Norton, McAfee or Trend Micro. This statement seemed to encourage consumers to keep their frame since the anti-virus software would supposedly catch their own mistake. Thankfully, the company did the right thing and has now discontinued the model, pulling it from the major stores, including Best Buy. This is the only model from the Insignia line to include this virus, according to the manufacturer.

If you were one of the people who bought this digital frame, you can call Insignia's customer care line at 1-877-467-4289.

Neoprene MacBook Air Sleeves

Belkin Slim-Fit Sleeve

Are you planning on picking up the new Macbook Air when it goes on sale in the not-too-distant future? Well if you’re going to pick up something that expensive, you’re not going to want to carry it around in a manila envelope all day. I don’t care how much of a wow factor you’re going to get when you whip it out that first time, it won’t last. You’ll need to get something that will actually offer a little protection while making it look good. Belkin has the perfect answer.

Belkin has lined up a few different sleeves that should appeal to a wide range of MacBook Air carriers. The low-end Slim-Fit Sleeve is a simple neoprene sleeve that uses only a flap to contain your new notebook. The Leather/Neoprene Sleeve differs itself not only by the fabrics used, but by having a zipper as well. The Vertical Sleeve gives you the option of using a shoulder strap, rather than just carrying it in your hand or inside of another case. The cases will range from $29.99 to $49.99 and are set to hit shelves in the very near future.

Toshiba competes with the Macbook Air


APPLE markets its MacBook Air as the thinnest notebook, which turns out to be true only if you count recently-released models. And even those oldies which aren't as thick as the Air (the Mitsubishi Pedion is 0.74", the Sharp Actius 0.54", and the Toshiba Portege 0.65" thick) tend to have uniform thickness, while Apple's model tapers to a sharp point. How close, then, do current models get?

Toshiba's Portege P500, at .77" thick, is only one-hundredth of an inch fatter than the MacBook Air. However, close inspection of PDF spec sheets reveals that this is at its thinnest point, while the Air is .76" at its thickest point. When it was released, Toshiba also called it the thinnest notebook in its class.

At $2,000 to start, the P500 more expensive, and it has iffy specifications: a 1.2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo T7600 CPU and 1GB of RAM. On the other hand, it has excellent battery life and well-heeled design: if you're not so keen on Apple's teardrop shape and black keyboard, you may find the P500 better-looking thanks to its tiny screen bezels.

Former Midway Employee To Sue Nintendo - Must See

Former Midway employee Patrick Goschy is planning to sue Nintendo for patent infringement, claiming that he created the idea of a motion controlled system very similar to the Wiimote/Nunchuk combo currently in use in Nintendo's Wii.

As proof of his claims, Goschy has released the above clip from 1999 demonstrating his design for the system.

Nintendo claims that Mr. Goschy's idea had no impact on the design of their current controller, but that video does demonstrate a system that seems very similar to what Nintendo uses currently.

The big question is: if his system was developed almost 10 years back, as he claims, why has it taken Mr. Goschy so long to act on Nintendo's alleged infringment?

In addition, both his system and the Wiimote seem very similar to motion-controlled systems that have been in existence for many years.

It will be interesting to see how this plays out in the courts -- assuming it gets that far -- as the Wiimote is one of the key components to Nintendo's current success.

Tuna Sells for Record $55,700


If you have ever wondered how the price of sushi can get so high, this might help explain.

Recently, the world’s largest fish market in Tokyo, Japan had it’s first auction of 2008. At the Tsukiji market about 2,904 bluefin tuna were sold, including one that set the record for most expensive.

A Hong Kong sushi restaurant owner paid a record 55,700 dollars for a huge bluefin tuna that was caught off Japan’s northern region of Aomori.

Japan, who consume about 25% of the all tuna caught, is moving towards limiting bluefin tuna fishing in its own waters in a bid to help protect the species from extinction.

Sweaty hands while playing PS3 Games? GET THIS

PS3 is one the most hi-tech gaming consoles ever, but like every other thing it’s got some drawbacks and one of them is its convex-shaped triggers. If you’ve got PS3, then I am sure you know how troublesome it can get while playing games for long hours. It is normal to have sweaty hands when playing games for long durations and your finger just slips off the R2 trigger at a very wrong moment.

It is damn annoying when it happens, luckily there are third party triggers called ‘real triggers’ that can be used to fix the problem. These triggers by Gioteck are concave in shape and hence they provide better grip. There’s probably no way of getting them right now, although US magazine PSW’s December issue had these triggers as a freebie, but they will be soon available on company’s website.

Blue Ray Movies from PS3 to PSP

Nintendo might have invented console-to-handheld connectivity, but Sony finally made it useful. According to PC World, Sony demonstrated the new technology at CES that will make it possible for owners to copy a Blu-Ray movie to their PSP.

In an update coming later this year, PS3 owners will be able to automatically make a lower quality version of any High Def Blu-Ray movie in their library and save it to PSP or Memory stick.

This is sweet because the PSP has been notoriously tedious to encode for and you won't have to buy any more UMD's. Not only that, but watching movies on the PSP via memory stick increases battery life compared to watching them via UMD.

While Sony might have been all excited about Skype on a PSP, TheFeed is ready to rock some portable Blade Runner and 300.

No word on exactly when the update will be available.

Mr Clock Radio on CES 2008

The Mr. Clock Radio looks like a creation from some science fiction movie, holding the distinction of being the first robot radio in the world. It does not come with any body, but is more of a technological bust featuring a head and a clock as its base. Getting you up is not restricted to a mere buzz - Mr. Clock Radio will be able to whisper in a gentle voice or shout like a drill sergeant, and this normally happens once you hit the snooze button one too many times. Other features include speaking out the current time, reacting to light and motion by winking and blinking, an integrated AM/FM radio, and the ability to connect your iPod or MP3 player to it. Mr. Clock Radio retails for $80 a pop.

Wireless Mobile Charger 'ANYFIX' on CES 2008


In my house each of us has a different mobile phone, all of which require a different charger. This next gadget could eliminate that, the Anyfix, a ‘one for all’ charging solution.

  • Sony Ericsson
  • Motorola
  • Nokia
  • Samsung

Atari's Super Breakout on Auction

Those of you who are the new-gen console fans like Xbox 360, Wii or PS3, a 30- year-old handheld game might not interest you much. However, acquiring one to enrich your portfolio of rare collector’s item is no small deal. The early version of handheld consoles was produced by Atari. The Super Breakout game was quite big by today’s standard with a small LCD screen.

If anybody is interested, he or she might bid for it at eBay. This will help you only to gain some idea of the evolution of the gaming industry.

Digital Plankton - MUST SEE THIS

As far as I know, this is the first fishtank in which plankton are given a computer interface. You might be wondering just what the heck plankton could possibly want with a computer, but besides surfing the web, it turns out that these little daphnia are accomplished artists, dancers, and musicians. With the proper digital tools, anyway.


The actual fishtank is underneath a microscope. An array of LEDs responds to the movement of the daphnia (effectively, the daphnia controls the LEDs), turning off when the animal gets close to one of the sides of the tank. The position of the daphnia is projected live into a full size fishtank, and then surrounded by a cloud of digital plankton. And although it doesn’t seem to be included in the video, there’s also sound which the daphnia controls depending on the direction in which it swims.


Just imagine what it must be like for this lucky little daphnia… One minute, it’s living in pond scum, and the next, it’s controlling a computer. If it had a brain, it would probably be pretty excited. Oh well.

When was the Toilet last used ?

Thermochromatic Toilet Seat

How many times have you sat down on the toilet, only to find that it’s still warm from the last person that spent some time upon the throne? It doesn’t really creep me out as much as it does other people. If you’re one that doesn’t like a warm seat, you might like this amusing product.

The Thermochromatic Toilet Seat will change color when someone parks their rear upon it. The color changes depending on how warm it gets, you can then use this to gauge how long it’s been since the seat was vacated. If you’re creeped out by a warm seat, just look for any discoloration and decide just how badly you have to go.
