ESA’s microSatellite Proba-V

It looks like a small ‘Borg-Cube’, but its actually a satellite. Completely human in origin.

Its mission is to scan the earths vegetation and much more.PROBA - V Final test in Qinetiq facility

The ‘V’ in its name stands for Vegetation: Proba-V will fly a reduced-mass version of the Vegetation instrument currently on board the Spot satellites to provide a daily overview of global vegetation growth.

ESA’s  microsatellite is now fully assembled and midway through testing to ensure it is fully spaceworthy. The miniature Earth-observer, designed to chart global vegetation every two days, will be launched in April.

i’m Watch, Bluetooth Smartwatch Tested


This is the i’m watch, a smart watch which connects to your phone. Its hardly new but i got a chance to try it out at the CES this year.

My first impression is that it looks very good, it seems to be of good quality and the design is nice. The UI was pretty responsive, faster than you might expect from such a small device, but not prefect.

It connects via bluetooth to your handheld device, iphone or android. And you can use it to check your facebook and to answer calls and texts.


MirrorCase, Changing the way you take photos and video.


MirrorCase, a case with a built in mirror (like the name might suggest), allowing you to take pictures horizontally. I got to see what MirrorCase had to offer at the CES , and it seems nice. They have a case for the ipad and the iphone 4/4s, both are rather bulky. Then there is a new version for iphone 5, which uses a new flip out mirror, this makes it a lot thinner than the other cases.
