Impressive LEGO Mindstorm ‘LCD’ Clock

lego-clock.jpg

This is a clock made entirely out of LEGO/Technic pieces and two Mindstorms NXT micro-computers. Impressive, but I once made a clock out of nothing but the sun and a stick. Just kidding, that was a forest fire, but still.

Mr. Andersson…calls his clock the Time Twister. It’s powered by two LEGO Mindstorms NXT micro-computers chatting over Bluetooth. The master NXT keeps track of the time, handles the minute digits and never pays the slave NXT, despite it’s important task of changing the hour digits as well as flashing the separator to indicate the second.

No word if there’s an alarm option, but two plastic blocks knocking together probably wouldn’t wake you up anyways. Unless — UNLESS — they’re in the hands of a child. Kids can wake you up with anything, including a stare from across the room. They’re little devils!

Hit the jump for a video of the clock in action.

Samsung Introduces 7-Inch Tablet to Rival iPad

A collection of Galaxy Tabs


<< Previous

Next >>

After weeks of leaked photos and videos, Samsung’s 7-inch tablet called the Galaxy Tab is finally here. Samsung has announced the launch of the tablet that could become the first major Android-powered challenger to the Apple iPad.

The Galaxy Tab runs Android 2.2 Froyo operating system and has a 7-inch LCD display with a 1024 x 600 resolution. At 0.8 pounds, the device weighs just about half as much as the iPad.  It also supports Adobe’s Flash Player 10.1 so it can display web pages that run Flash — something the iPad can’t.

Samsung hasn’t announced a price yet for the Galaxy Tab.

Since Apple launched the iPad in April, almost every major consumer electronics maker has said it is working on a slate of its own. Yet only a few have yet made it to the market.

Earlier this month, Dell launched the Streak, a device with a 5-inch display that has been billed as a tablet but is priced and acts like a phone. Dell plans to introduce more tablets. BlackBerry maker Research In Motion and HP are also reportedly developing tablets. The JooJoo tablet, launched in March by a former partner of TechCrunch founder Michael Arrington, debuted to negative reviews, has not sold well and is embroiled in legal wrangling.

Meanwhile, Apple has sold more than 3 million iPads.

The Galaxy Tab has a smooth, slab-like design that’s similar to the iPad. It packs in a powerful Cortex A8 1.0-GHz processor and supports HD video. The device has a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera for video telephony over 3G and a 3-megapixel rear-facing camera to capture images and video. It will offer 16 GB or 32 GB of internal storage and will have microSD expansion for up to 32 GB of additional storage.

The Galaxy Tab will support 3G, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, along with push e-mail. It will not offer voice-calling features (except via VoIP apps).

Android OS fills out a smart hardware package

Hold the Galaxy Tab and the first thing that strikes you is how compact the device is. The Galaxy Tab has a smaller screen than the iPad and that translates into a lighter device.

The tablet’s smaller size also makes it easier to hold it in just one hand as you would with an e-reader like the Kindle or the Nook. The 7-inch display means the device is small enough to slip into the pocket of a suit or a purse.

The Galaxy Tab runs Android, an operating system that so far has done best on smartphones.

But Samsung seems to have done a good job of making the Android OS work on the tablet form factor. Samsung has an attractive calendar app for the Galaxy Tab and the e-mail app on the tablet is comparable to that on the iPad.

The Galaxy Tab also includes an e-reading application powered by Kobo — the e-reader sold at Borders. The tablet has a Media Hub for video clips and movies, which Samsung hopes to offer as rentals or downloads that users can buy.

Almost all independent apps in the Android Market will work for the Galaxy Tab, says Samsung. So users can buy the tablet and immediately have apps they can download and play with. But we will have to test this to see if it will work for all apps in the Market.

Samsung plans to launch the device in Europe in mid September, and in the United States and Asia shortly thereafter.

Better Than Retina: The Next Big Display Technology

Apple claims that its iPhone 4 “retina display” has pixels so small the human eye can’t distinguish one from the other. Researchers at the University of Michigan say they can beat that pixel density by an order of magnitude — and make screens that are simpler to make and more efficient to illuminate too.

The technology — called plasmonic nanophotonics — works a little like the rainbow, if light were refracted through nano-thin metal grates instead of raindrops. Vary the spacing between the grates, and white light appears in different colors. Instead of the multiple layers of glass, metal polarizers, and filter sheets in a conventional LCD, the polarizer is the color filter. The whole color component of the screen is a three-layer all-metal dielectric stack.

The energy savings are potentially tremendous. According to Michigan engineering professor expert Jay Guo, only about 5 percent of the backlight in an LCD screen actually reaches our eyes. This means we could use the technology in optical chip-to-chip communications, or even fiberoptics without the fiber. It could also be used to make high-efficiency, high-resolution projectors, or flexible color screens.

And yes — it does allow for the production of extremely tiny color pixels, less than 10 microns. That U of M logo in the first image above? It’s about 12 x 9 microns, or 1/6 the width of a human hair.

$50 Tablet Prototype Promises Low Cost Computing in India

In July, the Indian government showed off what it claimed would be a $35 tablet for students in the country. Now, a company is showing a $50 prototype device using Android operating system that could take the low cost tablet dream one step closer to reality.

AllGo Embedded Systems, a Bangalore-based company, has created a tablet that runs on Android 1.6 ‘Donut’ version of the operating system.

As the video above shows, the tablet is built on a reference platform called ‘Stamp’ and has a 7-inch, 800 x 480 pixels resistive touchscreen display–so no iPad like smooth display. The device includes Wi-Fi, USB and ethernet port. Of course all this is in a pretty early stage, so there’s no hardware case or buttons to get a sense of how the device will actually look in consumer hands.

The device is estimated to cost $50 at a volume of about 10,000 units, says the Liliputing site.

Allgo is not the only company hoping to satisfy the desire for low cost computing in India. The One Laptop Per Child project and its founder Nicholas Negroponte have also offered to collaborate with the Indian government to create a tablet for the masses. OLPC has already partnered with Marvell in the U.S. to explore a $75 tablet based on a reference design provided by Marvell.

Indian officials have earlier said they want to offer a Linux-based tablet that will support video conferencing and have open source software on it including Open Office. The device will also have a solar-power option, they said. The Indian government hopes to bring that tablet into production in 2011.

Now clearly, the OS choice seems to have shifted to favor Android. Earlier this month, a prototype Android tablet made an appearance on Indian TV as the low cost tablet. It is not clear who built that system.

Promising as Allgo’s tablet prototype seems for now, it is still in very early stages. Much will depend on the final industrial design–if it is too heavy, students might find it uncomfortable to use. But it is an ambitious attempt and it will be one to watch.

Nano’ Mounts Turn SLRs into Movie-Cameras on the Cheap

Redrock Micro makes accessories for movie cameras, and lately it makes add-ons for the latest movie-shooting SLR-cameras. The latest addition is a range of “Nano” kits which turn your stills-cam into a film-making rig, and they do it on the cheap.

SLRs are obviously designed to shoot single photos, and access to the various exposure controls is the premium consideration. A movie camera needs to be focused and moved around as you shoot, which is tricky if you’re using two hands just to hold it up.

The new Redrock kits come in three main flavors: A grip, which is a simple handle that screws into the tripod-mount, a pair of chest braces which let you hold the camera with one hand and focus with the other, and a couple “low-down” kits which put handles on the top and sides so you can carry the camera like a briefcase or an underwater-style rig. The chest rigs come with eye-pieces for the rear LCD-screen to allow live-view-shooting outside.

The prices run from just over $100 to just under $500, depending on how many rods, grips and pads are hanging off the stick-insect structures. This might not sound inexpensive, but in the overpriced world of movie-cameras, it’s an almost dirt-cheap bargain. Available now.

Canon G12: G-Series Regains High-Def Video at Last

Canon has a rich and proud history of leaking its own products, with premature camera listings popping up on its own sites anywhere from China to Germany. Today’s leak is the G12 pro-compact, but the site is CNET Asia – at least nobody on the Canon tech-team will be embarrassed this morning.

The G12 brings back the one thing missing from the G-series since the G9: High-definition video. The new tank-like camera will shoot 720p, just like its new little brother the S95, introduced yesterday. As with the G11 and S90 before, the G12 and S95 share a sensor, in this case a low-light-loving 10MP CCD.

The lens runs from 28-140mm (35mm equivalent) with the maximum aperture shrinking from Æ’2.8 to Æ’4.5 as it goes. The G12 also gets the fancy new multi-direction image-stabilization of the S95 and keeps its big 2.8-inch tilt-and-swivel LCD. Other “highlights” include in-camera HDR for making hideous, over-colored tone-mapped photos by combining three images.

The price wasn’t leaked, but I’d guess it will come in at around $500. Expect an official announcement very soon.

Qualcomm’s Mirasol Display Hopes to Create E-Reader Tablet Hybrids

Black-and-white e-readers are limiting while full color LCD displays such as those in tablets like the iPad can be power hungry and tough on the eyes. That’s why Qualcomm is betting that a new hybrid device that bridge the two worlds could be in the hands of consumers early next year.

Qualcomm is on track to ship 5.7-inch displays in the next few weeks that can shift between black-and-white and color, Jim Cathey, vice-president of business development for Qualcomm MEMS Technologies, told Wired.com.

These displays called ‘Mirasol’ will first go to device makers who are likely to introduce new products based on it early next year, says Cathey.

Last year, e-readers were one of the fastest growing consumer electronics products. But intense competition and pressure from Apple iPad has put many smaller e-reader makers out of business. Meanwhile, many consumers remain undecided when it comes to choosing between e-readers and tablets. Consumers want the convenience of a low power, display that’s lightweight and easy on the eye, with the advantage of a color screen.

With Mirasol, Qualcomm is hoping it can give companies such as Amazon that are reportedly looking beyond black-and-white e-readers an attractive option.

Mirasol displays work by modulating an optical cavity to reflect the desired wavelength of light. The reflected wavelength is proportional to the cavity’s depth. Mirasol screens looks more like glossy scientific books rather a full color LCD screen. But the displays consume very little power, are bistable and can play video.

Over the next few months, Qualcomm hopes to ramp up production of the displays. Qualcomm is building a new $2 billion Mirasol production plant in Taiwan, according to a report in DigiTimes.

A “major client has already started the design-in process,” using Mirasol, says DigiTimes.
