The Playstation has been a dominating game console for as far as it can be remembered. But Sony / Sony Ericsson have always denied the possibility of a Sony Ericsson phone orientated towards its game console series, in other words a PlayStation phone. In the past Sony have stressed that a PlayStation-branded phone could only exist independently from the mobile phone maker. However in a recent interview with Financial Times, Sony Ericsson’s president Hideki Komiyama have hinted that a PlayStation branded phone could actually be back in their agenda afterall. “If we do not adapt to this new technology or new market environment, we’re going to lose”, the Sony Ericsson head suggested.

This comes as less of a surprise. With significant losses just within Q1 of 2009 and increasing threat into the portable gaming market from Apple’s iPhone and iPod Touch, clearly the Sony Ericsson boss feels it may be necessary afterall to rethink about the idea of launching a portable PlayStation mobile phone device – watch this space!

Check out this awesome retro style flip watch, from the video it looks like it was just a plain conversation concept from Fatman, but Circuit Girl found it fascinating and went on to complete it. Even Fatman was impressed and the prospect of being able to hook up the watch’s alarm so that it conects and plays an iPod automatically sounds very cool indeed.

If you’re someone who employs a robot like automatic hoover vacuum system for your home, you might be interested in this latest invention from Panasonic. Fukitorimushi is the latest in floor-cleaning robots, unlike many that you may find up for sale these days, this autonomous robot does its thing in a rather creepy way by crawling around like a worm despite it using a highly efficient tech savvy cloth to keep your floors spotless.

Technically, the Fukitorimushi sports sensors that allows it to detect dirty spots on the floor. Fukitorimushi’s body is covered in Teijin’s Nanofront cloth, which is made of polyester filament fibers measuring 700 nanometers in diameter. Though this sounds remarkably hard to believe, this means it is about 7,500 times thinner than the average human hair. The nanofibers significantly increase the fabric’s surface area, giving it superior wiping characteristics and the ability to absorb oil and ultra-fine dust particles less than one micron in diameter. The large surface contact area also increases the fabric’s friction with the floor and makes it resistant to sliding.

Saw this amazing little video over the weekend on the BBC and thought it was definitely worthwhile sharing. The tiny tiny car you will see in the video below isn’t yet the world’s smallest car in the books but this will all change very soon. This tiny car is actually a hybrid of a quad bike in the shell of Postman Pat’s van, roughly the size of a domestic washing machine. It was unveiled during weekend and as you will imagine, it will barely even fit the person driving it, at about 40 seconds into the video you’ll see how exactly the driver can get into this thing.
