  • “Transparent Trucks” to save countless lives if they didn’t cost multiple arms and legs…

    "Transparent Truck"? At first it sounds like some weird Sci-fi contraption or lead in to the often talked about invisibility cloak. But in reality it isn't anything high tech or that complicated. The picture above shows this transparent truck concept for what it really is -- a simple yet ingenious implementation of technology on the roadways. The only problem in the near-term is cost. As with most forward thinking and leading edge tech, it will cost a pretty hefty sum of money to make anyth...
  • The camera phone in 2011: 20-megapixels, 1080p video recording.

    Gushing over the 8+ megapixel camera phones grabbing all the headlines and attention in 2009? Psh, that's nothing compared to what 2011 will bring us. Broadcom announced today a new processor of theirs that will usher in a new era and raise the bar as far as mobile picture/video taking is concerned. The chip, named the Broadcom BCM2763 VideoCore IV Processor will enable mobile phones and other MID's to support Full HD 1080p video recording as well as 20+ megapixel stills. But that's not ...
  • Need “the vision?” Get the T-shirt [Geeky Clothing]

    As any true photographer knows, at the end of the day it doesn't matter how big your lens is, how expensive your camera is, or how many extra attachments you have. It's the ability for the person operating the camera to "find the shot". You may or may not actually have that gift but at least you can wear it on your chest, fooling the world and pretending you do. For that, we have the "Still Need the Vision" T-Shirt. Wear it with pride... Geeky-Gadgets...
  • HTC HD2 going Pink…

    Now before you think this "pink" reference is made to some popular womens lingerie store, I'll come ahead and crush your dreams -- it's not. Instead this is a bit more sinister. Much like the Droid is having issues with it's camera, it seems as if the HD2 (popular device this morning isn't it...?) has problems of it's own. While the Droid currently lacks the ability to focus because of a random, weird ass cycle because of a time stamp bug, the HD2 has a nasty case of the pink halo. This halo...
  • Toshiba’s new CMOS censor to bring 14 megapixel cameraphones in 2010?

    Mobile photographers listen up, if you were looking for a higher megapixel count for your camera phone, step back, take a reality check and realize that camera's will not replace a good digital SLR anytime soon. In reality, real photographers already know that it's not necessarily the number of megapixels that matters most as it is the quality of the lens and algorithms/software used to shuttle physical images into "1" and "0" form. With that little factoid expressed, we can get on with th...
  • Lightscoop aims to make low light shots more natural.
    by Mike
    Posted October 25th, 2009 at 10:22 am
    When taking pictures in low light conditions, using a flash often casts an unnatural, harsh directional light on the subjects or focal point in the picture. Professional photographers often make use of umbrella like attachments that help diffuse light and give it a more natural glow. But we're not all photographers with countless attachment bags or the associated deep pockets that it takes to buy such equipment. Thankfully nifty and affordable attachment called the "Lightscoop" may just have ...
  • Catch the dirrty dirt with the “Voice activated Wall Socket Spy Camera.
    by Mike
    Posted October 23rd, 2009 at 8:51 am
    Even though we featured a spy camera of sorts earlier this morning, this variation of the spy camera is just plain cool. Plus, with all of this spy talk I'm eager for some R&R; time with a comfy couch, gallon of ice cream, and a James Bond marathon. Fuzzy slippers might even make the cut *nervously shifts eyes*. Spy cameras usually have one general flaw -- they require the operator to manually push some sort of button which can lead the one being spied upon to suspect something less than kos...
  • Card counting a favored hobby. Better rethink that strategy.
    by Mike
    Posted October 16th, 2009 at 8:13 am
    My feelings on card counting are rather positive. Positive because going into a casino, the odds are so monumentally against you, it almost makes more sense to simply open your wallet and tip it upside down leaving all of your cash/plastic on the floor because that's essentially what happens to most. If someone can figure out a legal way to tip the odds in favor of the little guy looking for a buck, then why not? First, if you didn't know, card counting is the simple act of a person keepin...
  • Make your own Google Street View camera system cheap!
    by Mike
    Posted September 30th, 2009 at 11:29 am
    If you've seen any one of the many pictures floating around the interwebs that shows Google's "chase vehicle" with the infamous Street View camera system mounted above and ever imagined owning your own, you were usually quickly shot down by your own mind as Google would never lend/sell you one. So, being the geek that Roy D. Ragsdale is decided to take matters into his own hands and build his very own Google Street view device. And knock the ball out of the park he did. For only $300, Roy c...
  • Layer venturing into the third dimension come November
    by Mike
    Posted September 23rd, 2009 at 6:11 am
    One of the coolest Android apps available currently available hands down is that of Layar. This seemingly average socially "aware" augmented reality browser displays real time info about various places using your phone's camera, GPS, compass, etc. isn't sitting still in terms of development and advancement. Come November, this nifty little app will be making a mighty large move into the third dimension. As you can see from the photo above, the possibilities and doors that can be heard openi...
  • Samsung Galaxy/I7500 heading to T-Mobile USA…soon?
    by Mike
    Posted August 27th, 2009 at 5:43 am
    The year isn't over for Android folks. While the MyTouch 3G was already released and may have been the savior many had been waiting for, I along with many others are still waiting for something truly unique that captures our eye. Could it be that the often rumored I7500 in american form is quickly on it's way to the U.S.'s fourth largest carrier? A recent FCC document detailing the passing of a Samsung device packin' Android seems to suggest so, or at least we'd love to think that. Of cour...
  • The added safety benefit of 1,000,000+ CCTV cameras? 1,000 crimes solved.
    by Mike
    Posted August 25th, 2009 at 5:45 am
    Some would argue that "safety measures" that cost millions and take large amounts of manpower and energy to maintain are worth whatever the costs even after saving a single human life. That's all fine and dandy except when you consider something like CCTV, red light cameras, etc. Such devices while labeled as enforces or protectors of public safety are merely there for cities to garner some extra income in these tough times. Not all cities are mindless and dumb however as many here in the U...
