BenQ X720, a 7 Megapixel digital camera at 14.7mm slim with stainless-steel body and a shiny metal grip. It was awarded the 2006 iF China Design Award and 2006 G-mark Good Design Award. Woot! Nice but i am greedy, I want 10 Megapixel.

3x optical zoom smc Pentax lens, 2.5-inch color TFT LCD display, SD card format, supports high light sensitivity of up to ISO 1200 and up to ISO 4000 in recording mode, 7-scene modes for quick setting adjustments as well as PictBridge function for direct photo printing via a compatible printer.

BTW, this is the first nice one I have seen from BenQ… maybe they woke up after spending too much at Siemens…

10 days and 250 people to film. 70,000 litres of paint, delivered in 1 tonne trucks and mixed on-site by 20 people, 358 single bottle bombs, 33 sextuple air cluster bombs, 22 Triple hung cluster bombs, 268 mortars, 33 Triple Mortars, 22 Double mortars, 358 meters of weld, 330 meters of steel pipe, 57 km of copper wire, the cleaning took 5 days and 60 people.

Why can’t they use digital animation? Well, this is more fun anyway… Color……. Its a Sony…

When I first got very excited about model making about 11yrs ago, I bought myself a hobby kit with a small motor… and then I was introduced to Dremel, a machine with so much power that I can build a hardcore model without killing the motor… but then comes the problem, its big and it vibrates, tiring to the hand.

Today, I am excited by what I discovered online and will burn a hole in my pocket. The dremel stylus, good to hold, easy to control, grey so it won’t look so dusty, lithium ion battery for cordless maneuvers, dock for continuous charging, USD69.97… Wow… cheap in the US!

Ainol V1000

October 18, 2006


This is no joke, China is playing catch up, and at a very fast rate. Look at this sleek stainless steel machine with 2.5 inch QVGA display, a handheld emulator, as well as a full fledged media player. It has an ADI Blackfin processor, which can run up to 400Mhz and allows you to play 8bit NES, 16bit SFC and Sega MD games. The V1000 also plays back AVIs, as well as MP3s, WMAs and the lossless FLAC codec (CD-like sound quality).

I don’t mind getting one… if it has greater memory space than its current 1Gb.

Gemei X-900 (1GB)

October 18, 2006

You see, its ugly… like cheap plastic for a child to wreck… but did you see something unique… a blur between a portable video player and a handheld gaming platform… it is also a camera, and an FM radio.

It is able to support emulators for both 8-bit and 16-bit consoles like the Nintendo Entertainment System and the Sega Mega Drive with a video playback time of 6 hours. It has the potentials for improvement…

The Retsu watch is just 1/3 of the weight of most other LED watches at only 8 mm thin and weighing only 40 grams. The LED lights go up the watch and leave a single light next to the digit. The process is then repeated for each digit to give you the correct time.

The dilemma… The time is 3:45pm…no am… no… 4:53pm.. or it is 5:34am… AAAaaarrgghhh….
