This unique and in my view very awesome-looking creation from Nicolas Lehotzky has a sublime look with the main emphasis of its concept on safety. The concept notebook is equipped with hidden USB ports and as you can see it also features a knob integrated with security features.
The integrated security knob on the notebook’s frame is fingerprint activated, which allows the laptop to respond only to the owner’s touch, working as a physical lock. The laptop has a built-in paper shredder too! And as you will have guessed, the hidden USB ports prevents it from any unwanted data downloads, so any unauthorised USB flash drives trying to penetrate its way into this laptop’s system can be disregarded – unless it uses Windows But all in all, it looks like a neat design!
Check out this latest in ‘simulating’ technology which is currently being featured at the Tokyo Game Show 2008. Zettai Zetsumei Toshi 3, which I believe just means earthquake simulator in plain human language, can really shake!
It’s capable of going up to Shindo 7 which represents the strongest earthquake you could possibly ever experience. This is a great tool I suppose from an educational perspective, for those especially children in high risk earthquake areas who have never experienced an earthquake, teach them what it’s like. There you go, another excuse to go on the simulator if you’re in Tokyo!
Here are some leaked shots from nedge2k.com of the latest upcoming HTC T8290. From the front, it’s design looks similar to the Touch Diamond just with a larger screen. The HTC T8290 is said to be a GSM + WiMax device, with 3.8-inch display screen with an impressive 800 x 480 WVGA resolution, built in WiFi and Bluetooth. At the back, you see a Yota logo, that’s the Russia WiMaX network provider. There is also speculation that HTC could be bringing this to the US instead of the latest HD version of the Touch…
If you weren’t drawn in to buy the Halo 3 Halloween costume we featured then the Halloween Contacts and Special Effects Lenses could instead be the perfect accessory for this year’s occasion in question.
With over 130 styles to choose from and available for those who require prescription as well, the Halloween Contacts and Special Effects Lenses could just be what you need to enhance that old not-scary-anymore costume you’ve had in your clothset for years…
We all know Apple will be launching something special tomorrow, and most likely it will be brand new MacBooks. However, here’s one rumor that’s definitely to be speculated. Jason Calacanis, in an interview with CNET claims that a source told him that Apple is working on a networked LCD HDTV with built-in Apple TV. Why Apple would jump into the HDTV market is strangely mysterious, but what’s interesting is the promise of an HDTV natively capable of streaming music and videos from your network.
Watch the video of this speculated rumor (you might want to switch your speaker down a touch!):
LG Electronics and PRADA today announced that the partnership that created the PRADA Phone by LG will release its second handset later this year. Almost identical to the highly successful original, the new very stylish mobile has a hidden secret. An ultra-thin keyboard which slides out from under the handset! As serenely as it appears it slides invisibly, effortlessly away – a modern icon of mobile style and design with an extra competitive edge.
The new Prada phone by LG is the highly anticipated successor to the original Prada phone, which first brought Prada together with LG, one of the most advanced technology companies in the world.
The Prada phone made history as the first full touch-screen phone to reach the market. With all the characteristics of the most digitally enhanced phones it was also a powerful aesthetic pioneer and quickly established its hold on the industry with over 1 million design-conscious users demanding handsets.
Its elegant good looks combined with a digitally sophisticated interface made it instantly appealing. The culmination of Prada research and development in the complete interior as well as exterior design and functionality of the phone and accessories was key to this success.
The unique QWERTY keyboard available only with the new mobile is designed for maximum ease of use. The metallic feel makes it a pleasure to touch and type, complimenting the slick design aesthetic. The silver keyboard along with the additional on-screen, call and hang-up buttons gives fresh tactility to the original minimal concept.
Other major enhanced features include 3G compatibility with video calling, 7.2Mbps HSDPA, full HTML browser, the 5 mega pixel camera with Schneider-Kreuznach certified lens, and Wi-Fi accessibility.
This second generation of Prada handset if you like by LG is not just for pleasure, as you may already have realised, this is a luxury design accessory that sports some major improvements in comparison to its predecessor. This will allow it to compete on every level with some of the latest mobiles, hand held devices and smartphones currently in or coming into the market.
The latest, new Prada mobile will be available with a starting price of 600 Euros through major mobile dealerships in Italy, UK, France, Germany, Spain and Netherlands in the 4Q of 2008.
