Leap Motion and Double Fine team on Dropchord, give air guitar skills an outlet

Leap Motion and Double Fine team on Dropchord, give our air guitar skills an outlet

Emerging technology often needs a halo app to lure us in. For the upcoming Leap Motion controller, that app could come through the unusual (if welcome) channel of Double Fine’s Dropchord. The game’s exact mechanics are a mystery, but the music focus and exclusively gesture-based input should finally reward those who’ve spent years shredding invisible guitars. Gamers who don’t want to spring for a peripheral just to get one game will have the option of an iOS version sometime after Leap Motion gets first crack on May 13th. Knowing Double Fine’s reputation in motion gaming, the extra hardware just might be worthwhile — see Giant Bomb‘s proof after the break.

Rogers LTE Rocket Hub supports up to 15 simultaneous users, requires electrical outlet

Rogers LTE Rocket Hub supports up to 15 simultaneous users, requires electrical outletTrying to find a mobile hotspot that’s a bit less mobile? Rogers’ exclusive LTE Rocket Hub might be the pick for you, delivering 40 Mbps ordinary download speeds with support for up to 15 simultaneous wireless tool connections. LTE service is currently offered in 28 cities above the border, however places without the current network can hop on HSPA + to get connected. The component is set to ship beginning August 2nd, and unlike the provider’s existing Rocket Mobile Hotspot, this bigger taste will certainly require an electrical outlet– however with more than a dozen hookups and a 10 event LTE cap (which we presume applies here as well), you will certainly require to unplug once in a while. More information at the source link below.

Microsoft lands an official software outlet in Iraq

Image

Believe it or not, there hasn’t been an official distributor for Microsoft software in Iraq in the near-decade since it’s even been an option; if you wanted Windows or Office in the past several years, your choices were limited and seldom legal. Baghdad’s Legend Lands is filling those big shoes through a deal with Microsoft that will see it provide both official copies, support, and other help for Iraqis that want to take the honest path. Stores across the country will take care of everything from large-scale government orders down to a Tikrit family’s first home PC. The move won’t completely quash piracy concerns, but it’s a big step towards normalcy in technology for the desert nation.

Sandia Labs develops self monitoring smart outlet, still needs you to plug it in

The folk at Sandia Labs work on all sorts of interesting projects, and the latest thing to fan our utopian dreams is this experimental smart power outlet. Unlike most monitoring set-ups, it can measure and control electric load without being connected to a central management system. The outlet comprises four receptacles, each with voltage and current sensors and a small computer which shuttles data over an Ethernet bridge. This autonomous style of operation could lead to more intelligent power grids that self-monitor, adapt and integrate with other grids without complex infrastructure updates. Other benefits include removing large points of failure, desirable in any network, and simpler home power monitoring systems. Sandia Labs’ prototype could also improve effectiveness of variable output energy sources such as wind and solar, thanks to its ability to compensate for flux in energy production — which might come in handy.

Powertech Ultra Slim outlet expander brings USB ports to your wall outlet

There’s always a few unexpected devices to be found, and we just caught a glimpse of one such device at CES Unveiled this evening from an OEM called Powertech Industries. Called the Ultra Slim, it’s an outlet expander that gives any regular electrical outlet a pair of USB power sockets — without the wiring required of more permanent solutions like FastMac’s U-Socket. The Ultra Slim is just that, as it’s only about half inch thick, and has a unique folding collapsible plug on the back to keep its trim figure. Its thin profile is also able to accommodate the depth of regular plugs with extending sections in the back. The adapters we saw were prototypes, though production will begin in earnest this July and Powertech plans to find a retailer willing to rebrand and sell them to the public for an as-yet-undetermined price. A full gallery of pics of the adapter awaits below.

Hamster Power: Electric Outlet Wall Decals

decals.jpg

This is a series of clever wall decals to apply near electric outlets/light switches. They were designed to add a little pizza pizazz to what would normally be considered an eyesore. And speaking of eyesores — I let my fingernails grow real long, right? Well I think I cut my eyeball trying to take my contacts out last night. Like, I accidentally carved a little chunk out of my eyeball trying to pinch my contact off. I know this because I actually had to pick that Jello-y shit out from under my fingernails. Are you getting sick yet? I’m trying to make you sick.

Hit the jump for a bunch more (including a couple environmentally motivated ones) and a link to the product site.

Homeless Man Arrested For Using Private Outlet To Charge Phone

Clearly, theft is wrong. But what about that ethical grey area? You’ve heard the example before: the man with no job steals bread for his family to survive. Wrong or right? I’d have to lean toward the “right” side, although that doesn’t make the situation fair for the baker, who just lost a loaf of bread. So what would you say if the father was a 23-year-old homeless American named Shaun Fawster, his family was his smartphone, and the bread was electricity to feed it? Still kind of ok, but also still unfair?
