The many attempts at weaving biometric identification into mobile devices have usually focused on only one aspect at a time, whether it’s fingerprints or voices, and often for access to just the device itself. AOptix isn’t quite so narrowly focused. Its new Stratus system combines an app with a custom iPhone 4 / 4S case (the Stratus MX) to verify faces, irises, fingerprints and voices for grander purposes, whether it’s office workers checking in or entire national ID programs. The bundle should be more portable than most such alternatives, as well as more intuitive through its familiar interface. Odds are that you won’t be buying a Stratus kit to scan friends and family at home, though. Apart from the bundle’s lack of support for the iPhone 5 or any non-iOS platform, the Stratus software in the App Store isn’t an impulse purchase at $ 199 — and an emphasis on quotation-based case sales likely means you’ll be the scanner’s target, not its owner.

The only upgrades available for our puny human hands are games controller calluses, however if you’re sporting an i-LIMB digits hand prosthesis, you could now get a set of improved fingers. Touch Bionics’ “smaller, lighter and more anatomically accurate” appendages are now available worldwide, in addition to a brand-new wrist-band unit which houses all the necessary computing power and juice for their function. Best of all, these developments enable more people to adopt the tech than the previous generation, including those with even more tiny hands or finger amputations closer to the knuckle. We don’t understand how much it’ll cost for a fresh set, however we’ll let wellness agencies and insurance companies manage that part. With these upgrades and RSL Steeper’s latest offering, it will not be long before our flesh-based variations are meager in contrast.

You may’ve already looked into our hands-on time with LeapFrog’s next-gen LeapPad, however starting today, now you can finally get your own palms on the kid-friendly slate. The business– who’s additionally offered us to the Explorer– has revealed its LeapPad 2 is now up for grabs at a collection of online and brick-and-mortar stores, such as Target, Finest Buy, Kmart, Amazon and, naturally, its very own website. Now, the $ 100 LeapPad 2 isn’t really anywhere near the same class as Mountain View’s $ 200 Nexus 7, though for apparent reasons, as it’s targeted at a totally different audience. In other words, those 100 bucks could simply be sufficient to keep children away from your priceless every-day tablet. We’ll let you choose that, nonetheless.

Editing digital photos is a thankless job that involves hours in front of the computer. Mouse click after mouse click, one lucky person fixes red eyes, crops layouts and brightens hundreds of images from the latest birthday party or family vacation. Now, Apple wants to free people from their computers with a mobile photo-editing option.
When the company introduced its new iPad last week, it also released a retooled, $ 5 version of iPhoto made for the iPad and iPhone. Until now, iPhoto was the only software program in Apple’s iLife suite that wasn’t available in a mobile version.
So what’s different about this iPhoto? It incorporates smart new finger gestures that you can’t make using a mouse or trackpad, and applies settings like “Detect Edges,” which automatically detects where an object starts and ends, so editing with a finger can be done without worrying about being messy. It offers simple and helpful tips that explain its many features and has an always-visible, one-tap button that lets users see the original, unedited photo at any time. New Photo Journals make digital scrapbooking a breeze.
I’ve been testing this new version of iPhoto on two iPads and an iPhone 4, and it has remarkably fast performance. Photo-editing options are more clearly explained in this app than in any other version of photo-editing software I’ve tried. It strikes just the right balance between what the average person wants — bluer skies and glowing skin tones — and what enthusiasts want — eight options for white balance adjustments.
Apple’s iPhoto has features that both the average phototaker and enthusiast would enjoy. Above, making blue skies bluer with a variety of photo-editing tools that appear at the bottom of the screen.
Four clear categories at the top of the screen help users quickly navigate through sections in iPhoto: Albums, Photos, Events and Journals. Albums appear on handsome glass shelves, and automatic albums are generated to hold all Edited, Flagged or Favorite images. A variety of tools appears at the bottom of the screen for editing photos. My favorite of these tools is Brushes, which spreads a rainbow of virtual brushes across the screen. Each does a different job, like repair, red eye, saturate, desaturate, lighten, darken, sharpen or soften. I selected the brighten brush to add color to a shadowy image and swiped my finger back and forth across the screen with quick results. The Detect Edges button kept my finger fixes neatly limited to one object.
Photo Journals are clearly designed to take over Apple’s now-defunct MobileMe photo galleries. Photo Journals are feature-rich scrapbooks you can make with photos that are already neatly sorted into albums and events, and anything else you want. With Apple’s distinctive polish and artistry, the Journals combine lots of information in one place, including maps, weather, quotations and food memories. I’m tempted to go through past vacations to make a Journal for each trip.
But iPhoto has three problems. First, it isn’t designed to truly organize photos into events and albums. It assumes you’ve done this elsewhere, like in the desktop version of iPhoto before syncing with iCloud, Apple’s remote file syncing system, or in the Photos program on the iPhone or iPad.
Second: The only way to wirelessly share Photo Journals from iPhoto is by first uploading them to iCloud, which generates a unique Web link to that Photo Journal. This link can then be shared with others by email, but it’s frustrating that Apple didn’t directly integrate a way to share these creations via Facebook, Flickr, SmugMug or other photo sites. The emails generate terribly long URLs that look ugly in Facebook and don’t include any thumbnail images. A spokeswoman said Apple would address this issue in a software update.
A Photo Journal combines lots of information in one place, including maps, weather, quotations, food memories as well as photos.
Third, due to its technical requirements, iPhoto for iOS works only with iPhone 4, 4S, the iPad 2 and the new iPad. This is bad news for people who have an iPhone 3G or 3GS, an iPod touch or the original iPad.
If you know the new touch gestures for iPhoto, you can be much more productive. By tapping two fingers on a photo, a loupe appears. This allows you to instantly see a magnified portion of the image, which is helpful in knowing if a part of an image is in focus. By rotating two fingers in a turning motion on this loupe, you can zoom in closer.
Another touch gesture makes it a cinch to compare multiple photos with one another. When looking at the thumbnail grid of images that appear beside one large image, select a bunch of photos at once by holding one finger on the first image in that group and a second finger on the last image. Doing this magnifies all images in between for closer inspection. A swipe down on any image quickly tosses it out of the selected pile.
IPhoto will find look-alike photos when you double tap on an image in the thumbnail grid view. A sound plays, and the images appear, side by side, making it easy to get rid of excess shots. An alert sounds if no similar images are available.
After using the mobile iPhoto for a while, you may dread going back to your PC to upload images from cameras or smartphones. ICloud can sync images to your mobile devices from the computer. But if you don’t use iCloud, Apple’s $ 29 iPad Camera Connection Kit adds a USB adapter and an SD card adapter to the iPad.
People shouldn’t be tied to their computers when editing photos, and this version of iPhoto is an asset to people who want to be more productive on their iPhones and iPads.

Question by cbviz99: How can I get my fingers to keep sliding smothly on iPad screen?
Most of the time I am fine, but when I play games like Dead Space or Rage HD and my fingers stay on the screen to move they start to not slide well. It is frustrating because it causes the games to be almost non playable. Does anyone else have this happen to them? And if so what do you do about it. My hands are clean and I wipe down the iPad screen whenever I am done with it. Thanks in advance and I know it sounds like a wierd question.

Neonode’s NN1001 optical touch controller tracks gestures with any object, ‘gloved fingers’ included
Neonode’s name isn’t plastered on your spate of gizmos, but if you’ve purchased a touchscreen-based device in the past year or so, there’s a better-than-average chance that it’s technology is tucked within. In the run-up to CES, the outfit is introducing the world’s first ultra-low power single-chip optical touch controller, NN1001. This guy was developed in cooperation with Texas Instruments, specifically designed to shave costs and increase performance / functionality for smartphones, tablets, e-readers and automotive applications. The device has a scanning speed of 1,000 Hz (latency down to one millisecond) and consumes less than 1mW at 100Hz; better still, it’ll track any high-speed multi-touch gesture with any object (including a finger, gloved finger and passive pens). We’re told that it’ll work in single or multiple configurations to support screen sizes up to 20 inches, but there’s no clear view as to what products are lined up to receive it. That said, we’re promised an early look of an automotive application at CES, where it’ll head into the public world in the latter half of 2012.

Daniel is a cat. A cat with a human name. A cat with a human name THAT WAS BORN WITH 26 TOES. Normal cats only have 18 (eight up front), but Daniel the human-named cat, well, he’s got two extra on each foot. You lucky dog! “He’s a cat.” You’re an @$ $ hole.
Normal cats have 18 toes, but Daniel has two extra on each foot due to a genetic mutation called polydactylism.
Officials at the center found out their rent at a Milwaukee-area mall was being doubled on Jan. 1. So, the shelter is buying a new building and is seeking small donations of $ 26 — or $ 1 per toe.
They’ve collected enough so far to secure the financing with about $ 80,000 raised since Oct. 24, but they hope to raise $ 120,000 by Dec. 23 so they can become even more financially stable. About $ 50,000 of the money raised has come from $ 26 donations.
Daniel was originally going to be adopted out, but Rowell has decided to keep him as a shelter mascot.
Oh man, I love polydactyl cats. But you know what would be even cooler than a polydactyl cat? A pterodactyl cat mount that you could ride/fly into battle. CAW CAW, meoooooooow.

This is a series of zombie/severed head bowling balls created as part of a marketing campaign for 13th Street, a German sci-fi/horror cable channel. As you can see, they were painted to look like decapitated heads, and you put your fingers in the eyes/nose/
butthole/mouth. Pretty clever. Granted not as clever as getting an actual severed and shrunken head encased in a clear bowling ball, but not everybody knows a witchdoctor. Do they, Kapalu? “Ooka ooka, tally-tuka-rah.” Haha, man I want a bone in my nose like that.
