Sony Rolly

September 6, 2008


Rolly is an egg-shaped digital robotic music player made by Sony, combining music functions with robotic dancing. It has several motors that allow it to rotate and spin, as well as two bands of LED lights running around its edge and cup-like “arms” which can open and close on either end, all of which can be synchronized to the music being played.

Sound-sensitivity components detect beat, rhythm, voice and pitch, which can be used to have the device automatically react to music. It also has an accelerometer which detects if the player is moving up or down. Preprogammed movements along with music can be downloaded from personal computers using Bluetooth. It has 2Gb of flash memory to store music files.

Dulux PaintPod

February 21, 2008


Dulux PaintPod is a device that pumps paint directly to a roller attachment. Hit a button and the PaintPod loads its roller with the correct amount of paint. And it even cleans itself up when you’ve finished decorating, taking ten minutes to rinse all the paint out of its system. It does require its own 5-litre paint packs, as they’re formulated to just the right consistency to work with the pumping system.
