Light Touch projector makes any surface a touchscreen

light-touch-touchscreen-projector-uk-0

A previously little-known company from the UK called Light Blue Optics has demoed a projector at CES which allows users to interact with the light image as if it were a touchscreen.

The Light Touch throws a 10-inch image at WVGA resolution at incredibly short distances thanks to the holographic projection technology involved. At the same time the infra-red touch sensitive system allows users to interact with social networks, multimedia sharing and any other applications that can use the Wi-Fi or Bluetooth support in the device to connect to the Internet.

It comes with 2GB of onboard flash memory, a microSD card slot for expanding the storage and the battery life will last 2 hours. Expect to hear more from this one on the OEM front as interest grows.

The Ultimate Website Launch Checklist

 

Pre-Launch

Content and Style

Typography and layout

Check for incorrect punctuation marks, particularly apostrophes, quotation marks and hyphens/dashes

Check headings for where you could potentially use ligatures

Check for widow/orphan terms in important paragraphs

Spelling and grammar

Consistency

Capitalisation (especially of main headings)

Tense/Style of writing

Recurring/common phrases (e.g. ‘More about X’ links)

Variations in words (e.g. Websites vs Web Sites, or UK vs US spelling)

Treatment of bulleted lists (e.g. periods or commas at end of each item)

Check for hard-coded links to staging domain (i.e. ensure all links will change to ‘live’ URL/domain when site is launched)

Ensure no test content on site

Check how important pages (e.g. content items) print

For re-designs, ensure important old/existing URLs are redirected to relevant new URLs, if the URL scheme is changing

Check all ‘Hidden Copy’ (e.g. alt text, transcriptions, text in JavaScript functions)

Skinny Player

skinny_player

The Skinny Player kinda reminds me of the O+ Music Campaign where the promotional kit offers one song in various mediums. The concept here with the Skinny Player is to offer one album space on a portable – Band Aid-esque device. The self-sticking player houses a play/stop button and flexible speakers. Although I am not so sure about the sound quality for the output, but the idea is worth exploring. The user-scenario is for exercise or such places where you want to keep your hands free, but still carry your music with you.
The unique angle to the player is that hopes to use your body heat for powering the device. Now if this is possible or utopian , is left to be seen.

BlackBerry Empathy

empathy10

For their sponsored project held by RIM Blackberry at the Art Center College of Design, designers Kiki and Daniel had to incorporate an interface that integrates human emotions with the concept of social networking. The result of this exercise was the Empathy concept. The phone is used in conjunction with a biometrics ring that is worn by the user to collect “emotional data”. Spec-wise it features a transparent OLED screen that becomes transparent when not in use and opaque during interaction. The front is all touch surface, while on the back there is a physical keyboard.

Wind Cubes

windcube02

How would you like your very own take-it-home apply-it-yourself wind power generator? How about a whole array of them? This is a design that’s just that, take it home, unpack it, screw it into the wall, connect it to whatever battery you’ve got that can hold generated power, and let it rip! This design is made up of blades, the generator, a telescopic shaft (so that the fan can be extended or “away”, electric power plug, and switch. With an array of 15 of these fans, you can power a household of four people for a month.

Oh my goodness! One of these fans, called “Wind Cubes”, could potentially generate 21.6 kilowatt-hours per month. Times that by fifteen, and you’ve got 324 kw, the same amount the designers of this project note is the amount a family of four uses per month. Seems too perfect!
