Sculpteo, a French 3D printing business, is now providing custom iPhone adapters for older iPod docks, permitting you to include link to your old Bose, Sony, JBL, and other docks with the brand-new Lightning port. Certainly you require a Lightning adapter but the $ 17 pieces will make it much simpler for you to link your phone to these older docks.
However the most fascinating thing here is that this basically develops a sort of interstitial hardware. Rather of buying a new dock (or a new infant gate or a brand-new yard parasol) you could get and print or download and print your very own spare parts. This obviously gained ’ t put your neighborhood hardware store out of company and 99 % of the world gained ’ t buy this Lightning adapter, but the reality that it ’ s readily available is essential.
“ This tale and this adapter is opening a new industry of 3D printed spare parts for a great deal of various gadgets. Battery covers, clips, docks, handles … a great deal of things could be lost, or become unusable because some various other gadget changed or has actually been upgraded, ” stated Sculpteo creator Clement Moreau. “ We actually see 3D Printing right here as a method to work smoothly in a moving environment, where huge business have really good reasons to change criteria from time to time. ”
This is print-on-demand hardware, made for an extremely certain function with a very particular audience. Due to the fact that they don ’ t have to hold inventory, you could essentially offer customized dock adapters. This one is a one-size-fits-all but you might feasibly print brand-new ones for oddly-shaped ports or even adapters for different phones. It makes no sense to make 50,000 of these at a factory in Asia however it makes best sense to dump out few hundred to those in demand.
This is hardly an earth-shattering announcement. Unusually enough, as a Makerbot owner I ’ d actually prefer to be able to download and print my own copy of this adapter as opposed to buy one for the ridiculous price of $ 20. I gained ’ t, however still. This statement does raise a great deal of intriguing points about where the hardware company is headed. And when I can revive old docks with simply a small piece of plastic I ’ m a much happier guy. And, when somebody unavoidably develops a complimentary copy of these things, we ’ ll need to begin asking ourselves exactly what copyright truly means in a period when we can print anything at any time, from iPhone dock adapters to firearms.

Adapters to fit Canon’s EF lenses on Micro Four Thirds and NEX video camera bodies most certainly aren’t new. Without any digital link, however, that Lumix GX1 or NEX-F3 manager has needed to concentrate by hand, sometimes without any type of aperture control– exactly what year is it, 1930? Kipon wishes to make certain you’ll never ever need to stoop to that level once again through a pair of new adapters that keep the digital controls working. As consistently with these parts, there’s most likely to be catches: we don’t know the prices and ship dates, for one, and lens conversion can still harm the autofocus speed. Even so, anybody who’s been hoarding (or just envious of) Canon glass now does not need to eye an EOS-M simply to obtain a mirrorless camera with the lens adapter they crave.

If you’ve pre-ordered a Galaxy S III and can’t wait to see its display mirrored to the silver screen, add one more thing to that pre-launch shopping list: a new MHL dongle. According to UK retailer Clove, a change in the phone’s connector pins renders it incompatible with previous Samsung-made adapters. Sammy’s new microUSB-powered connector supports 1080p output via HDMI — though it reportedly doesn’t play nicely with 720p displays — and rings up at $ 40 on Amazon. Mosey past the break for a video unboxing of the dongle.

We feel like if you’re going to buy an Eee Pad Transformer, you may as well spring for the $ 150 docking station — you know, the thing that makes the tablet so noteworthy. And we don’t need to remind you it also happens to be a solid value proposition: the dock brings not just a full keyboard, but two USB ports, an SD card reader, and up to seven hours of extended battery life. There must be some people content with just the slate, though, because ASUS is rolling out a trio of accessories that offer pieces of the docking station’s functionality. Head on over to Amazon Germany and you’ll find individual USB and SD adapters for €19 ($ 27) a pop. And though it’s not listed with the adapters, NetbookNews also spotted a €29 Euro ($ 41) stand with a USB port, SD slot, and headphone jack. Before you get too excited, though, Amazon is saying the adapters will ship one to three months from now, which leaves you quite a bit of time to save up for the full keyboard dock. Just saying, folks.
If you’ve been thinking about buying a one piece Mini DisplayPort-to-HDMI cable to bring vids from your Macbook to an HDTV, you may want to get it now. According to a report from TechRadar, the group behind HDMI has decided they don’t meet the requirements and cannot be tested or licensed for compatibility. Their sin? Not having a male HDMI plug on each end as required by the spec, which only allows for dongles featuring an all-female pairing of Mini DisplayPort and HDMI to get the job done. We’ve contacted the group to find out exactly what’s going on, but until we hear back it may be prudent to keep an eye on suddenly black-market cable pricing like gasoline before a big holiday.

How many of you out there still have your Dreamcasts tucked away somewhere? Nice. Me too. I mean, when you’ve got classics like Chu Chu Rocket, Skies of Arcadia, Soul Calibur, Rez, and more all still looking as good as they did in 1999 (actually still pretty good), why would you throw it away? And now you don’t even have to worry about finding your old discs. This SD card adapter means all the games, emulators, and other stuff are as easy to run as a memory card.
To be honest, I wouldn’t feel too bad about pirating games for this system now. I’ve been known to grab a used Dreamcast game at GameStop now and then for $ 3, but Sega &co. aren’t seeing any of that, and I think the best thing you can do is appreciate their last hardware effort and classics like Sonic Adventure for all they’re worth.
To do that, you can either get this MicroSD adapter for $ 5 (!), or you could actually just buy a new Dreamcast that’s been modded with a front-loading SD card slot and extra video options in the back. I don’t think you’ll find anyone to play Phantasy Star Online with you, but the rest of the games should be more than playable.
For the record, I think the best Nintendo emulator ever put together was for the Dreamcast. NesterDC SE, you were far and away the best way for playing NES games, on any platform. I salute you.

It's been a couple years, but I remember you were able to use a smattering of unofficial 802.11 adapters in place of the overpriced 1st-party device. Of course, you could also go with an Ethernet / WiFi bridge and other like workarounds, but I'm looking for a straight up USB WiFi device that's going to work with the console out of…

Accessory maker Novoflex has a new lens adapter that will let you use Nikon F-mount lenses on Canon EOS bodies. It adds one big extra over previous versions: you get a ring to control aperture on Nikon G-lenses (those without an aperture ring.)
One of the great things about the little mirrorless cameras like the Panasonic G-series, the Olympus Pens and the Sony NEXes is that their currently meager lens line-up can be supplemented by other lenses old and new, just by using an adapter. SLRs, on the other hand, are pretty much stuck with the glass that was made for them.
An adapter has a thickness, and when you put one on a lens, you move that lens away from the film (or sensor). This stops the lens focusing at infinity (and will also allow it to focus a little closer). Thus, mounting a Canon lens on a Nikon body doesn’t work so well. The mirrorless cameras already have a lot of extra space to spare, so the adapters have room to fit. Novoflex has managed to get this ring thin enough not to cause focus problems.
The new EOS/NIK-NT adapter has an integrated aperture ring so that you can still set the hole-size. As G-series lenses are controlled entirely by electronics in the camera body, they need this extra to work on a Canon camera. Thus, auto-exposure (aperture priority) will work by actually stopping down the lens. Focus will still be manual, although infinity focus is maintained. If you have lenses with aperture rings, another adapter is available.
The problem is that there are plenty of great lenses for both Canon and Nikon, so we wonder why you’d need this adapter. For quick, fun experiments it will be great, but otherwise its hard to see the point. Especially when you consider the price, a rather odd $292.99.
