Pepwave Surf Mini to tackle WIFI inadequacies

Bookmark and Share
Nice little gadget if your existing wifi signal is too weak for your big house.

Pepwave Surf Mini to tackle WIFI inadequacies: "Pepwave has a little nifty gadget, aka Pepwave Surf Mini, that can do many wireless mini-miracles...

For US$99 MSRP, it can (** see below for applications summary diagram)

1) Act as an independent access point to add wireless connectivity to your network

2) Act as a repeater to re-broadcast existing wifi signal, increasing coverage and reliability

3) Act as a Wifi dongle to industrial devices with only Ethernet connectivity


Last but not least, it has the option of adding high gain external antennas to the device. And this feature allows for long distance point to point connections to be made with 2 x US$99 Pepwave Surf Mini. There are some real-life references of up to 0.75 of a mile by means of 15 dB antennas on both sides.

Now imagine what a 23dB panel antenna could do..

HD3 Complicated Black Pearl Watch

Bookmark and Share
Looks more complicated than James Bond watches from "Q".

All I need is a watch that tells time.

HD3 Complicated Black Pearl Watch: Pirate-Inspired, Costs Plenty of Booty [Watches]: "
'Excuse me, sir, but do you have the time?' 'Why yes, yes I do.' 'Well, what is it then?' 'Menacing.'
Anyway, that's how I see that conversation going down if, by some slim chance in the near future, I'm wearing this $400,000 watch and some curious chap asks me for the time. I'd be wearing an eye patch while drunk, if that helps you visualize the encounter any better.

Designed by Fabrice Gonet, the Black Pearl is a limited run timepiece that includes a number of subtle pirate-themed additions, including the prerequisite skull and bones (etched in glass on the back), a tiny cannon, and some nautical navigation touches. Then there's the fact that it costs as much as some pirate's treasure...

There were only eleven made, each with the aforementioned $400,000 asking price. [FLYLYF via technabob]

Project a touchscreen!

Bookmark and Share
Light Blue Optics has a new sexy product that is able to project a small touchable screen onto any surface and allows user interactivity with the projected image.

Branded as the Light Touch, it is capable of projecting a 10.1 inch screen and the projected image is also a virtual touchscreen.

This product is vaguely similar to the I.Tech Virtual Keyboard but instead of just projecting a virtual keyboard, this Light Touch projects the entire screen instead.

See the video demo at CES 2010

Converse shoes shanzhai’d and re-invented

Bookmark and Share
Original Article Source :Freaky Friday: Converse shoes shanzhai’d and then some:

Gotta love shanzhai innovation!

Marquis Mills Converse, who was previously a respected manager at a footwear manufacturing firm, opened the Converse Rubber Shoe Company in Malden, Massachusetts in 1908. The company's main turning point came in 1917 when the Converse All-Star basketball shoe was introduced. What he couldn’t have imagined then was that one day more than 80 years later his shoe designs would be so iconic that they would get the shanzai treatment.

Shanzhai : meaning cheap knockoff from China, imitating some popular brands without infringing copyrights and patents... 

Gotta respect the fact that the Shanzhai manufacturers are getting more innovative.

eg, Adidas is aptly named Abibas for Shanzhai sportswear.

Thumbthing gadget for reading paperback books!

Bookmark and Share
I am an avid reader of the conventional "pulp paper" fiction. (i.e. I like to hold a novel in my hand and flip the pages until I finish reading.)
The gadget below is very useful for conventional readers like myself whom doesn't like the idea of an e-reader.

Thumbthing Uthful for Readerth: "

Known as the "Thumbthing", it only costs $4. My bet is that, it should cost more than zero cents to recycle some recyclable plastics to do the same job
