Robots help us accomplish many complex tasks, from diffusing bombs to assembling automobiles. Now, with the open source Egg-Bot, we can add “drawing on spherical surfaces” to that list. Yes that IS a complex task…
Exited to see whats inside this squared little ipod? Well here it is!
The 6th-gen device weighs in at 67 percent of the volume of its precursor, with a slightly thicker body and that integrated clip on its back. Its 240- x 240-pixel display offers a 220ppi density, which, within Apple’s ranks, is bettered only by the Retina Display on the fourth generation iPhone and iPod touch devices. Regrettably, just as with those two machines, the 2010 nano has its front glass, LCD and touchscreen assembly fused together. One handy bit of news here is the battery size, which at 105mAh is what you might call paltry, but still doubles the old shuffles 51mAh. All in all, the conclusion from this dissection is that the new device feels more like a shuffle with a screen than a miniaturized nano, which, when you look at the form factor, makes all sorts of sense.
