Bluetooth headsets are the perfect candidate for solar power. They don’t use much juice and are pretty much always out in the light. The Iqua BHS-603 SUN headset claims that it is the World’s first. The 14 gram unit will last for 200 hours on standby, and give nine hours talk time. It is available soon for £50.
Now we can worship the sun with our ears… I want one… but I strongly feel the design could be much much better…

Designed to mimic the look of a trash can, TEMPO is a unique hard drive storage device. Intended to protect the user from accidentally deleting files, it can also be used as an external storage device. As you delete files, they are automatically copied to the TEMPO. As it fills up, led’s light the “can” from the bottom up, informing you of how much space is available.
Tempo is just a concept. It hasn’t been technologically designed.

Nokia 500 Auto Navigation

August 29, 2007


In-car GPS Navigator has been around for a while, then Nokia thought of a mobile navigator… and then Nokia realised, “Hey! If I have the facilities, capabilities and brand name, why don’t I just make standalone navigator and take the big market share!”

The GPS unit doubles as a Bluetooth handsfree set, and the regionally-tuned mapping software can offer up contact details of points along the way, which means a quick click-to-call without looking up numbers for, say, hotels and restaurants.
A built in MP3 player will beam tunes to your car radio via FM, and there are photo slideshow and video functions for times when the split screen traffic info service fails to bail you out of gridlock. Due in Europe this fall for €300, with a Worldwide rollout soon after.
Oh my… its affordable…
