Check out Antonio Lupi’s latest invention, an innovative system of mirrors that are equipped with music diffusion systems, ie a mp3 player or iPod dock at the base. Why? Many of us like to sing in the shower, but the problem is music players aren’t, and the moisty environment makes it unsafe. This is an example where the mp3 mirror design by Antonio can come in good use. Designed by AL studio, this music amplification system can be adjusted to all mirrors with a steel frame. It comes with a lighting switch Touch Led which makes it easy to find out even when the lights are out.
Now this is quite special, apparently not involving any latest tech. Simply done by scanning the barcode on the side of the Lego box you’re holding next to the Lego Digital Box, it will then show you in 3D what your model will look like once completed.
Hey folks, we’ve got a few more pictures of the Samsung Show – the first pico projector phone which was featured at this year’s CES. Yes, we do realise the previous pictures were absolutely rubbish, so sorry about that! Hopefully the ones in the gallery below are much better, thanks to Slashgear.

Cowon or full name Cowon Systems, Inc. you may or may not have heard of here in the UK since its primarily a company based in Asia. The South Korean electronics company which has been established since 1995, with initial focus mainly on software and later on portable digital media players has now released its latest creation, the Cowon S9 Cureve.
The S9 is a 3.3-inch media player that features an AMOLED capacitive touch panel display which spreads 16 million colors across 480 x 272 pixels. Within this beautiful handheld player is a 500MHz dual-core CPU, T-DMB digital television tuner, Bluetooth, FM radio, TV-out and G-Sensor accelerometer. What’s also quite impressive is nearly two days (40 hours) of music playback from a single charge.
A few months back, Optoma announced the first Pico projector based on the DLP Pico chipset and said that it would be in limited distribution in Europe and Asia in late 2008, with a worldwide launch in 2009.
Smaller than most smart phones, this new micro-portable projector fits in your palm and is the ideal companion to ultra-portable media devices such as iPods, PDA’s, smart phones and digital cameras. Optoma’s Pico Projector utilizes the latest LED technology resulting in a colorful and vivid image. The small and powerful unit is based upon DLP technology assuring the highest possible contrast.
As you will see in the demo video which was tipped into us. Once connected to a mobile device, the four-ounce Optoma Pico Projector allows users to share photos and videos and enjoy a far better visual experience with an image that is up to 100 times larger than the small screen of the source device.
Skip the recap of Optoma’s press release from June this year if you already know enough!
Optoma Introduces World’s First Pico Handheld Projector
Based on Texas Instruments’ DLP Pico® Chipset, Features Sleek Design and Extreme Portability
LAS VEGAS, NV (June 18, 2008) – Optoma, a leading manufacturer of award-winning digital projection and display devices, introduces the first Pico projector based on the DLP Pico chipset. Smaller than most smart phones, this new micro-portable projector fits in your palm and is the ideal companion to ultra-portable media devices such as iPods®, PDA’s, smart phones and digital cameras.
When connected to an ultra-mobile device, the four-ounce Optoma Pico Projector allows users to share photos and videos, and enjoy a far better visual experience with an image that is up to 100 times larger than the small screen of the source device.
“The Pico Projector is the next step in sharing visual media for today’s ultra-mobile consumers. Fitting in your shirt pocket, the Pico Projector can display pictures, videos or any content from a mobile media player or smart phone” says Jon Grodem, director of Product Management for Optoma. “Optoma’s Pico breaks free from the limitations of the 2 or 3 inch displays found on today’s mobile devices. This category defining projector creates a new benchmark for sharing content-on-the-go.”
Optoma’s Pico Projector utilizes the latest LED technology resulting in a colorful and vivid image. The small and powerful unit is based upon DLP technology assuring the highest possible contrast.
“The handheld Pico projector represents the latest advancement in the mobile device display industry. We view the Pico projector as a completely new and exciting market – one which dramatically expands the reach and potential of projection products into new end user applications,” says Dr. William Coggshall, founder and president of Pacific Media Associates.
The product will be first shown at Texas Instrument’s InfoComm 2008 booth C909 and will be available in limited distribution in Europe and Asia in late 2008, with a worldwide launch in 2009.

To be honest, I haven’t heard of the GreenPIX, but apparently it was officially launched earlier this year… From the video below, it looks stunning, it sounds impossible for something this scale to be powered via just solar energy, hence it’s also called the ‘Zero Energy Media Wall’. Now if only more countries could follow its steps and build advert boards as eco-friendly as this, then we could definitely take another step closer to meeting our CO2 emission targets…
GreenPix is a groundbreaking project applying sustainable and digital media technology to the curtain wall of Xicui entertainment complex in Beijing, near the site of the 2008 Olympic Games. Featuring the largest color LED display worldwide and the first photovoltaic system integrated into a glass curtain wall in China, the building performs as a self-sufficient organic system, harvesting solar energy by day and using it to illuminate the screen after dark, mirroring a day’s climatic cycle
The Media Wall will provide the city of Beijing with its first venue dedicated to digital media art, while offering the most radical example of sustainable technology applied to an entire building’s envelope to date.
