June 4, 2010 Leave a comment

If you own a shop or restaurant, you would probably take serious effort on interior design and decoration for branding. You are also keen on personalize your belongings, like put a sticker on your newly bought laptop to hopefully show how unique you are. This is nothing new either for businesses or individuals. The same applies to online community. We focus a lot on web designs to suit our own identities. The wallpaper background, which is perhaps the largest available space online, could have more potential usages than just being nicely designed and filled up to attract eyeballs.

What does a Future Smart Phone Look Like?

June 2, 2010 1 comment

People want to upgrade their digital cameras sometimes merely because the new types are much easier to carry in pockets; people buys new watches sometimes just to avoid changing batteries; people are crazy about iPhones while still trying to live with the trade-off between a comfortable size of a keyboard and a display. But the truth is that a device should bear all those features to be qualified as a ‘mobile’ one: pocket size and light in weight, worry-free charging, comfortable for fingers and eyes of all sizes.

The recent two prototypes might cast a little light into how our future mobile phone could look like. Read more…

Of course all b-box is DIY by nature, you might think. Yes. But how many of us can do it like Scratch Cat or Dave Crowe? Not many I guess.

Wireless Charging: One Step Closer (part 2)

May 28, 2010 Leave a comment

One of my interests is to check on businesses that come up with simple, smart, decent and price-worth solutions to really help solving our practical issues. One issue for me is that no matter how cool the device could be, every time I look at all the wires winding together behind, I felt like stone-age. That is why I come back to the topic.

On Wireless Charging: One Step Closer to the Dream (part 1) we’ve introduced PowermatTM Wireless Charging System: multiple (up to 3) gadgets (like iPhone, Blackberry) lay on mat and get charged through the ‘touch’, not wires. There is a catch though. You will have to get different Receiver Cases for different phones Read more…

Is an Emotion Decoding Software a Helper or an Intruder?

May 25, 2010 Leave a comment

I read some time ago that a computer program called Magnify is able to decode the human voice and identify the person’s emotional state in real time. The program works by tearing apart the person’s voices, separating frequencies and measuring the qualities, such as intensity and intonation, of these wavelengths. It is used by some American companies in their call centers in the US.

However 17 to 24 percent of the time Magnify failed in its judgment. According to eXaudios – the company that developed the program – it was because that the person’s medical condition distorted his speech, like autism or schizophrenia. Therefore the company is working on identifying personal diseases as well.

My first reaction was that it sounds pretty cool. With smart phones we are already like carrying our personal assistant around, Read more…

May 20, 2010 1 comment

Many girls have probably dreamed of being a runaway bride for at least once in life. Just enjoy the process of shopping and then wearing beautiful dresses, jewelries and shoes without getting into the line labeled ‘desperate housewife’. Compiling the recent progress in the tech/fashion world, I think it’s time for me to consider opening such an convenience store that offers a complete service chain for runaway brides to-be.

The marketing logo would be select-enjoy-disappear. As a customer you should Read more…

You’ve Got Tweet, from a Cow

May 20, 2010 2 comments

I mean a real cow, not someone use cow as his Twitter ID. And the cow would tweet to you something like ”@AttnPlease: I just squirted 9.4 kgs of milk out of my teats in 4:46 seconds. What did you do today?” Would you respond with ”That’s my girl. Keep up with the good work!” Maybe you will even feel connected when drinking your daily milk?

The scenario is not on paper. Read more…
