Braille touchscreen is an iPhone for the blind

Designer Zhenwei You's B-Touch cell phone would give blind users the same kind of multifunctional versatility that the iPhone enjoys. Instead of a glossy touchscreen, the B-Touch instead has a Braille interface that'll allow sightless navigation through the phones proposed features, including voice recognition and speech, a simple navigation system, and a scanner that can read text from a page as well as recognize objects.
As with the many other Braille-enabled devices we've seen, the B-Touch is sadly just a concept, but you have to wonder how far off this kind of technology really is.

Supermarket installs power-generating parking lot

A supermarket in England is setting up a high-tech parking lot that'll generate energy from cars driving on it. The free juice will power the cash registers and lights inside the store.
The system will work via a series of plates that, when driven over, will create a rocking motion underground which turns generators. As more cars drive over it, more energy is generated, about 30kw of energy an hour. It's a smart idea, and we'll have to wait and see if it catches on elsewhere. Source

Barca Hijack Villa

Vice-president Rafael Yuste has claimed that the club are in talks with Valencia over a potential move for the hitman.
Valencia have allegedly broken an agreement with Real Madrid to sell David Villa for a reported fee of €42m, with Los Che now said to be holding out for a sum closer to €50m. Either that, or a deal that includes Alvaro Negredo moving to the Mestalla.
‘El Guaje’ has been heavily linked with a move to the Bernabeu to spearhead the new-look Galacticos under Florentino Perez and, with Valencia’s precarious financial situation, it was thought that they would be forced to sell Villa at a knock-down price.
However, with a deal thought to be in place, Valencia appear to be holding out for more money for their prized hit-man, who netted 28 Primera Division goals in just 33 matches last season, as his side just missed out on the Champions League.

Zidane: Ribery Will Join Kaka And Ronaldo

Zinedine Zidane dealt Manchester United a blow yesterday by claiming Franck Ribery will join Cristiano Ronaldo at Real Madrid this summer.
Real legend Zidane, who has returned to the Bernabeu as adviser to new president Florentino Perez, insisted his old club had lodged a bid for United target Ribery and said: ‘I don’t see how he can turn it down.’
Zidane confirmed he had spoken to the Bayern Munich midfielder and added: ‘Franck has a decision to make, but I believe he cannot refuse an offer from Real. He is a great player, and I expect him to be turning out for Real.
‘It is only natural that the best players in the world are going to cost a lot of money, but we would welcome him with open arms.’
They will also turn their attention to David Silva of Valencia, plus Liverpool pair Xabi Alonso and Alvaro Arbeloa.
Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez will readily accept £8million from Real for Arbeloa, after sensing he is close to landing Glen Johnson from Portsmouth. But he is less enamoured about Alonso also heading for the Bernabeu. Source

New Nokia E72

Looks like the E71 is about to be upstaged as Nokia's premier business-class smartphone -- someone in Espoo's just hit the corporate YouTube account with this promo video for an E72. Upgrades include a five megapixel camera, a relocated headphone jack, and what looks to be an optical mouse instead of a D-pad -- a welcome upgrade for click-happy S60. That's all we know for now, but we're digging for more -- check the video after the break.

Trou Hologram Phone

The Trou Hologram cellphone has no screen, instead relying on 3D holograms projected onto the vacant area to display what you are looking at. Small projectors are lined up on the inner surface in order to bring the most lifelike images to life before your eyes.
They will have to figure out how to solve the power issues, since projectors suck a lot of energy. But one day we may just have this device in our hands fully working. That day is a long way away, but if we can envision it, we can eventually do it.

The 4-Port USB Hub with Solar Charger

This is one of those gadgets that would be great to just toss into your laptop bag. It’d make traveling easier and when your cellphone is dead, due to you forgetting to charge it, you’d have a backup method to charge it up again. Whereas owning a solar charger is usually on the expensive side of things, this keeps things affordable. Which is fantastic when you consider it’s both a solar charger and a USB hub. >>> Read More

Japanese Novel Written on Toilet Paper

With the many e-book readers that flood the market today, it isn’t hard to believe that we will be a paperless society in the next few decades. Pretty soon, the only paper we will be using regularly is toilet paper.
So I guess it is no surprise that Japanese novelist Koji Suzuki has chosen to print his novel on toilet paper. Actually, I’m not certain whether Mr. Suzuki made the choice, or if the publicity department at his publishing house was really itching for a new marketing idea.

One-off gold plated Wii for the Queen of England

THQ, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of interactive entertainment software, has sent an unusual, glittering gift to the Queen of England, and it’s a gold plated Wii. The one-off blinged device was delivered to Buckingham Palace. Finished in gold, the unique Wii console was specially commissioned for the Royal Family to mark the launch of brand new BIG Family Games for the Wii. The gilded Wii was delivered along with one of the first copies of BIG Family Games. THQ’s Danielle Robinson said in a press release that BIG Family Games is the ultimate Wii game to get all family members, from grandparents to young children, playing together. Her Majesty and other members of the Royal Family will be able to play 24 unique twists on classic family games, including golf, tennis, ladder golf, lawn darts, horseshoes and bocce. Danielle Robinson further said…
"We thought that Her Majesty the Queen wouldn’t want to play on any old console, so an extra-special gold one was commissioned. We hope that she and the rest of the Royal Family enjoy the game!"
I must say it’s an intelligent marketing strategy and it might give an impetus to the sales of BIG Family Games for the Wii. from Born Rich

Evolution of Dance

Still the most watched video on YouTube

Where the Hell is Matt?



In 2003 Matt Harding quit his day job and used the money he'd saved up to travel and filmed himself dancing in various places all over the world. Then in 2006, Stride Gum approached Matt about doing another video which as of this posting has nearly 10 million views on YouTube.

Matt's released a new dancing video, and this time has included participants from almost every corner of the globe to dance with him. We applaud Matt for his work and for creating what must be one of the coolest jobs on the planet. Regardless of borders and differences, we're all human and we like to have fun and dance!

In Photoshop, there’s a little pen which will copy the color settings of anything on your monitor screen so you can use it as your color in the program. Well, think of the Real Life Color Picker as … well, a real life version of just that – only for the real world.
The Color Picker can scan any color in the real world by placing the head of the pen against the object of color and pressing the scan button. Color sensors inside the pen talk to the attached RGB cartridge, which then mixes the proper proportions of red, green and blue to come up with an accurate ink color. It can then be used for artistic purposes like drawing or simply writing with it. Very cool. Read Full Article
