Black & White Clock

July 21, 2009

Digital clock with only figures and no casing. Each figure has self-contained power supply and independent control. A light sensor will switch the clock to an invert mode: the figures are white in the dark time of day and black at daytime. Nice stuff!

Canon has announced two new portable digital photo printers in their Selphy range, the ES3 and the cheaper ES30 which re-interpretes digital photo printing again.  Each has a built-in 15-in-1 memory card reader, are PictBridge compatible, use integrated ink & paper cartridges and have an LCD preview screen: 3.5-inches with wide-angle viewing on the ES3, 3-inches on the ES30.  The ES3 also gains 1GB of onboard storage, to allow regularly accessed images to be kept on the printer itself.

Both printers have a range of frame, clip-art and calendar templates that can be added on-device to images before printing. The AC adapter is built into the body of the printer so a simple power cable is all that’s required.

Livescribe aims to revolutionize note-taking by linking your scrawl to audio recordings.
The Livescribe Pulse converts your writing to searchable computer files. The Pulse, though, adds audio recording synchronized to your handwriting. Point the pen to a spot in your notes (or click on your computer screen), and hear what was said when you wrote it.
Next to the ink tip is an infrared camera that reads a grid of nearly invisible dots on special paper. (You can buy preprinted notepads or download a file to print your own pages.) Based on their arrangement in the grid, clusters of dots represent unique numerical values. Since every spot on every page of every pad is numbered, you can write in any order, and the pen can match it to the correct snippet of audio.
