If you’ve got some of those old-fashioned photo prints you’re dying to get back into the graveyard of your hard drive, the Doxie Flip is the device that’ll do it. It’s a flat bed scanner that will scan 4X6 originals at up to 600 dpi. The cover pops off easily to allow for scanning all types of flat stuff: images, artwork, whatever.
This interactive pet-cam thing lets you video chat with your pet when you’re away. You can also set it up to give him a treat or a “sniff” of the stuff he loves most. If he’s sleeping or busy giving his undercarriage a tongue-bath when you call, you can even record a video your pet will surely appreciate when he gets around to watching it.
Asus just introduced the first earbuds to feature NFC technology. This means you can instantly auto sync these buds to any Bluetooth device and enjoy up to 6 hours of continuous music or phone calls.
Floor mopping robots are very useful considering where mopping sits on most people’s list of weekly goals. This one will clean wet or dry on tile, wood, cement, whatever you’ve got. Which is amazing. But unfortunately we’re still pretty far from sandwich-making and beer-fetching robots.
Frank Zappa once said that the world won’t end in fire or ice. The other possibility: it will end in nostalgia. That probably has naught to do with Nikon’s new DF, an advanced digital DSLR with a full-frame sensor designed to evoke the golden age of square, clunky, knob-laden 35mm cameras of the early 1980s. Until its release next month shutterbugs and retro fetishists will be squirming in anticipation.
You’d probably want to know if your bedroom started steaming up when you weren’t at home. Odd example maybe but these Spotter multipurpose sensors from Quirky will let you know. They monitor motion, sound, temperature, light, and humidity and allow you to track it all on your mobile device.
Every day some random brand releases a new wireless speaker but when Bang & Olufsen does the unveil, they always bring something new. All three of their new Beolab speakers—the smaller, full-range 17; the 18, an update to the iconic Beolab 8000; & the 19, a dual-driver sub—feature better-than-CD quality sound: B&O’s higher resolution 24-bit as opposed to standard 16-bit sound.
Penultimate is one of the best digital handwriting apps but it will be even better with the creation of the new Adonit Jot Script stylus. It features a fine, 1.9mm tip, which is about the same size as a regular rolling ball pen and much smaller than most stylus tips. More accurate, precise, & natural-feeling.
LG’s latest reveal is the G Flex smartphone. It’s curved. Sorta like a banana. And your face. The idea is that the phone’s microphone is closer to your mouth when you talk. Not only that, this new Android-powered phone features a “self-healing” coating on the back that has the ability to recover from nicks & scratches making it look newer, longer.
Cleaning floors is a job for robots. And this one is a real pro. It’s got the ability to do both multi-suction brush vacuuming and hard-floor mopping with a microfiber cloth cleaner. It’ll work for 5 hours on a 2-hour charge and never complain.
