This is really clever! If you have a wifi network at home or at your business, why not make some extra cash with it? Especially if you are in a place with no hotspots available you could get a quite decent client base. A company called Tomizone lets you share revenue with them 50/50, they provide you with software for your router and you’re good to go.
I’ve only seen them operate in New Zealand and Fiji but it says on their website you should be able to do it in other countries just as well.
Despite recent advances in 3D technology home computers still use a strict 2D UI, why is this? Probably because 3D hurts some peoples yes and there just isnt any reason for a 3D desktop.
However these scientists thought different because they have created the first 3D desktop environment, and i must say it looks pretty cool!
Users can casually open up the See-Through 3D Desktop and Type on the keyboard or use a trackpad as in traditional 2D operating environment. Windows or files are perceived to be placed in a 3D space between a screen and the input plane. The user can lift up his hands to reach the displayed windows and arrange them in this 3D space.
A unique combination of a transparent display and 3D gesture detection algorithm collocates input space and 3D rendering without tethering or encumbering users with wearable devices. See-through 3D desktop is a term for the entire ensemble of necessary software hardware and design technological components for realizing this volumetric operating environment.
Soon you will be able to play laser tag at home, using your iphone! This accesory is to be used for different AR games like laser tag or killing aliens in your backyard. The Xappr Gun will cost $44.99, and you can preorder yours now from the company’s Web site.

“I bought this HDMI cable around Christmas time. Even though I just had a small 20-inch vacuum tube television and VCR-laserdisc combo player, my favorites immediately were up-converted to High Definition. I’ve honestly never seen Mulan like that before. Now I don’t have to imagine what it would have been like to face the Huns – I can experience it every Thursday night in the comfort of my own home.
After inviting a few neighbors over to verify what I was seeing (I’m a skeptic at heart), me and my TV experience became the talk of the block. Women started dropping off fresh-baked cookies and men were lining up to mow my lawn just to see the picture quality. My life at home has been transformed. I finally feel like I have a place where I belong. ”
What’s great about it: I get to tell people i bought a 1000 dollar 4 foot cable.
What’s not so great: People make fun of me about it after i leave the room.
While in agreement with the other reviewers that this cable renders the most life-altering pictures and sound, actually upconverting vhs to bluray, and displaying 3dhd in 4d ultra hd, I found there is room for improvement. There always is. Try buying two of the cables and running them in parallel for an even better experience. Optimum setup for a 1080i is four cables in parallel. Suddenly nirvana. For a 720p tv, use eight cables, but link them as four sets of two in-series. When hooked up with a flux capacitor and a selenium rectifier or wheatstone bridge, you can view the future in quadraphonic phasal matrices.
Some temporal distortion is an unfortunate artifact, but it should be fixed in an uprgade due by the CES.
What’s great about it: Can also be used with a four-poster bed
What’s not so great: No discount for buying by the case quanties (more…)
If you ask me this was the best booth at the whole IFA. You where greeted with the biggest multi 3d screen ever, also they handed out white 3d glasses for you. Then when the small show was over you went in to the actual booth(with the glasses). And well there, wow. Imagine everything 3D, 3d tv, 3d computer,3d everything. They also featured some new products i really liked. One of them a regular TV (both with and without 3d), but it had touchscreen. They demoed tons of stuff you could do at home with a touch tv. Like the kid playing angrybirds on it with a stylus (below). Also they demoed a glasses free 3D tv with a built in camera to adjust the focus. Basically the same screen there is in the Nintendo 3DS but bigger and you can view it from any angle. The con? Only one person per TV at a time. But my absolute favorite was their dual play glasses + tv. You have probably played a racing game with a friend on split-screen, it sucks. The screen gets tiny and you loose so much point of view. But with LG’s dual play you have two pairs of (passive) 3d glasses. One show the player one picture, in full-screen, the other lets you see player twos screen. It was an awesome idea. And it worked incredibly well.
