Fly6 combines HD video cam and bike tail light

By - February 11, 2014 7 Pictures
The behavior of drivers at junctions monitored by cameras or on stretches of road under the ever watchful gaze of a radar can be very different to those without. Keen cyclists Andrew Hagen and Kingsley Fiegert from Perth in western Australia are on a mission to give fellow riders the same kind of power. They've designed a rear cycle light named the Fly6 that's capable of recording everything that goes on behind, the theory being that if drivers think there's a camera pointed at them, they'll give cyclists more space and show more courtesy.

First color reveal of an exoplanet has the blues

By - July 12, 2013 6 Pictures
Uncovering any sort of detailed information about an exoplanet presents astronomers with an exceedingly difficult challenge. Despite the hurdles, however, some exoplanets are particularly well situated for such study. Astronomers have previously determined considerable information about the atmosphere and climate of HD 189733b. Now, thanks to Hubble observations made while it passed behind its primary star last December, we also know that this hot Jupiter-like planet is a deep cobalt blue in color, marking the first time that the color of an exoplanet has been measured.

Just over a year after showing off a new Full HD smartphone display, LG's Display wing has taken the wraps off a new variant that's being hailed as the world's thinnest.

Roku introduces its latest stream box in the form of the Roku 3

Roku has just launched an updated version of its popular line of stream boxes called the Roku 3. The company cites this as the most powerful box it has ever created. The feature that gives credence to that claim is that this is one of two available Roku devices that has support for 1080p video streaming. Roku also touts a faster processor in its latest box. The Roku 3 is also the first to include dual-band Wi-Fi, an ethernet port, and USB. Read More

Sony's new F5/55 4K Cameras gunning for RED and Arri

By - November 28, 2012 40 Pictures
The disruptive impact of the RED One 4K digital cinema camera when it was introduced in 2007 can’t be overstated. After a few of years of denial that 4K was even necessary and thousands of RED camera sales, broadcast giants Sony began to get their act together and move toward 4K image capture. The stunning F5 and F55 cameras are the culmination of those efforts and more interestingly, an indication of a complete, and necessary, change of attitude at Sony. Read More

LG announces 21:9 UltraWide Monitor with four-screen split feature

By - November 9, 2012 6 Pictures
Since unveiling the very first cinema-proportioned HD TV back in 2009, Philips has been leading the charge to get the distinctly oblong screens into our living rooms. Yet despite the powerful draw of immersive movie-theater-like viewing goodness, the buying public's cash (for the most part) continues to be thrown at 16:9 aspect screens. LG is trying another approach to kick start the ultra-widescreen invasion, by launching the world's first 21:9 aspect computer monitor. In addition to its obvious appeal to digital film buffs, the 29-inch EA93 is also being pitched at power users who currently multi-task across multiple displays (in my case a hotchpotch setup of 4:3 and 16:9 mixed displays).
