Gadget pr0n: the Samsung SCH-M7000

31 05 2005


No one seems to know much at all about this sexy little mobile beast from Samsung, (I don’t speak Korean or Russian unfortunately) but it’s got a flip out screen revealing the QWERTY thumbpad much like the Danger Hiptop / T-mobile Sidekick, supports the new supa-fast (for us Americans at least) EV-DO data connection, runs Windows Mobile 2003 SE (why not Mobile 5.0 damn it!), a blazin’ 520mhz processor, WiFi (802.11g i think!!), half VGA resolution TOUCH screen, and an SD memory card slot. I haven’t decided which occupies my wet dreams more- this lil number or the HTC Universal. Props again to tha engadget peeps for poppin’ this out first (in English at least!)

Lumiloop Reactive Bracelet / Candy Ravers’ ultimate orgasm

20 05 2005


Oh what I would have done for one of these back in 1999… This candy raver inspired bracelet displays motion graphics on its tiny (and lo-res) LED displays. The cool part is, these graphics respond to your actual movements!! Dust off your Kimball Collins – ICU cd, pull on a pair of Kikwears, and do the cracked out raver stomp like its 1999!

Lumiloop is a modular system of program and display panels that can be chained together to form a reactive bracelet. Each display module features a small 8×8 LED matrix, dynamically driven by an interchangeable program module. The program modules holds different display programs and include varying sensors for the bracelet to respond to. A program module with an accelerometer interprets gestural motions of the wrist and generates illuminated patterns in response.

Nintendo Phone? Hack your DS to make voice calls over VoIP!

20 05 2005


The hotties at Engadget have the real story:

DSpeak is basically Voice over IP calling using the wireless capabilities of the Nintendo DS. Using a connected headphone/microphone, DSpeak allows you to hold conversations with other DS users via WiFi, and the audio quality is reportedly “perfectly fine, as good as a mobile phone.” Plus, you get little Mario and Wario icons moving their mouths when you speak — come on, Vonage, how you gonna beat that? The software itself will be available as a free download, and the booth boy told us that they’ll be including headsets with DSpeak-compatible games (the headset will probably also be available for sale separately for some nominal fee). Otherwise that’s about all we know—we couldn’t squeeze a release date out of them, and no one at the Nintendo booth knew a damn thing about the actual technology they were demoing.
