While insufficient battery-life can be annoying in most mobile devices, getting cut off from the outside world because your radio has run out of juice can be much more serious.
Computerized sleeves may soon allow manufacturing bosses to monitor and record workers’ moves and mine them for efficiency data.
Holographic video is sort of the holy grail of video display technology right now. Stereoscopic 3-D is fine and everything, but it basically works by tricking the brain into seeing that 3-D depth via two offset 2-D images
Raspberry Pi will offer office programmes and video for £16 - Just need to add keyboard, television and mouse - Connects to internet via cable - and can connect to other gadgets via USB - First 10 'collectors' samples on eBay this week
Bruno Zamborlin collaborated with Norbert Schnell to use a contact microphone connected to a system that processes sound in real time to turn any rigid surface into a touch interface. There's no way to explain it adequately in words, so just watch th

We're less than a week away from the new year. With the massive holiday gadget launches behind us, it's time to look forward to 2012.
“Synthetic nanowires are used to realize the proof-of-principle,” Weber told PhysOrg.com. “However, the concept is fully transferable to state-of-the-art CMOS silicon technology and can make use of self-aligned processes.”
The new solar paint, which the researchers humorously call “Sun Believable solar paint,” consists of a yellow or brown paste made of quantum dots. The small size of these tiny semiconductor nanocrystals makes it possible to capture nearly all inciden
Ultra- D is the company’s display technology that can carry out realtime conversion of 2-D to 3-D without necessitating the use of special glasses for viewing.
The Casio EX FC150 is capable of capturing video at 30fps, 120fps, 240fps, 480fps, and 1000fps. Increasing speed decreases resolution. I've found that 240fps works best for most airgun shooting.

You don’t have to be a cranky old fart to find yourself increasingly at odds with the multiplexed interfaces, mouse inputs and menus, touch screen displays and tyrannical computer “aids” that are becoming commonplace features on modern cars – and whi
IPad 3 rumors point toward early 2012. So what kind of features will be included? Here's a roundup of iPad 3 rumors, with a little context as to whether you should believe the scuttlebutt or not.
The system update offers quite a few new features, including a new interface; enhanced voice- and gesture-control for Kinect owners; easier ways to connect and play with friends; and access to live television channels and on-demand movies that will r
