Sony will (for now) not be making a playstation phone, however they have something a lot better to tell us untill the ps phone is announced. It’s called Playstation Suite, and what it will do is emulate psp games on different mobile plattforms. Hinting again at android, but if luck is with us maybe iphone and windows phone 7 is in the game. Still i think this is going to be awesome, considering the gaming market for Android isn’t exactly large.
what i’m thinking now is how long it wil take to hack this service for free psp games on all phones
While devices like Sphero or Parrot’s AR.Drone that use the iPhone or iPod Touch as a remote control usually just rely on the device’s built-in wifi or Bluetooth, these AppToyz, from a UK-based company called MediaSauce, use a cheap add-on dongle to communicate over RF I assume.
And instead of interfacing with the dock connector on the bottom of the iPhone or iPod Touch, the AppToyz dongle plugs into the headphone jack which seems to be standard procedure for third-party remote control hardware like this. As a result, when available sometime this year, they’ll be a bit more affordable than something like the AR.Drone with an RC helicopter selling for ~$80 (£50) and an RC car that’s a bit cheaper at ~$47 (£30).
This lamp uses a strip of 65 LEDs in a pipe, the cool thing is you can select how many are on or off by sliding two rings. It’s pretty cool, quite useless unless you have a strong desire to only light up part of your desk. anyway it’s a cool thing, which happens to have won the Red dot design award. although right now it is probably just a concept.
