Lytro: The Revolutionary Camera is Now on Sale

This will be either the most overhyped piece of camera technology in modern times or the start of something revolutionary. (I'm hoping it's the later.) About four months ago, Lytro announced that they were building a consumer digital camera that claimed it will be the biggest technological jump since we started talking megapixels over 20 years ago.

Nintendo 3DS Includes 3D Camera

In case you missed it, the talk of E3 and the blogosphere these days is the Nintendo 3DS. Why? It's a device that allows for 3D without the glasses. It uses a familiar technology called stereoscopic 3D - the display shows two images, one for each eye to view. When the left and right eyes see each image, the brain processes them together to give the illusion of 3D… Continue

What is Web 3.0?

A very interesting story about the Semantic Web and Web 3.0. Semantic Web is a term used to describe methods and technologies to allow machines to understand the meaning - or "semantics" - of information on the World Wide Web. It's a component of 'Web 3.0.' where all of the content is linked together in meaningful relationships. An abused marketing term for some and an ideal vision for another...

I like this part of the video the best: Does the world make… Continue

Nike Grid: London's Your Gameboard

With Foursquare (Gowalla and MyTown) getting a lot of press these days, I thought it was interesting to see Nike getting into the location based social networking game with Nike Grid.

10 Funny iPad Cartoons

With all the media hype that came with the debut of the iPad, I thought it would be fitting to poke a little fun at the "magical" and "revolutionary" device. Granted, I'm a committed Apple fan with my iMac and my iPhone so it hurts me a little bit when techies bash the innocent, little thing. No matter, I'm sure just like the iPod and the iPhone we'll all be jonesing for…

iPad Finds a Home

At first glance, BookArc just looks like a chunk of metal. And yes, well, it is. But what makes it so interesting is that it elevates your iPad and lets you position it, turning that other chunk of metal into a slew of different devices.

Nokia's Giant Arrow Points You to Good Things

Though this giant arrow is no longer up, I like the creative concept and how this video succinctly explains Nokia's idea behind it. In order to get people to think about Nokia when they think about navigation, they put up the world's biggest signpost (arrow) in London. Help up by a crane, the arrow was a digital panel where people on the street could send text messages to. Their favorite places to visit would show up, the arrow would point to that location, and also… Continue
