The One Touch Pizza Delivery Magnet – No Anchovies Please

Posted: 30 Mar 2012 01:46 PM PDT

The Pizza, the perfect “I don’t want to go anywhere” meal. It’s easy enough to pick up the phone, place your order and wait the agonizingly long 30 minutes or so till your pizza arrives. Devoured straight from the box, perhaps in front of the TV. Heck it just doesn’t get any better than that. Does it?

Well, some folks at The Red Tomato Pizza in Dubai thought it could get better, and easier and have introduced a  refrigerator magnet shaped as a cute little pizza box that functions as a one touch delivery button from your house – to their kitchen, provided of course that you live in Dubai!

The gadget works simply enough, by communicating via your Smartphone's Bluetooth connection to place your order. The standard information, like address and phone numbers would have been previously provided online so after set up, it is indeed, one stop pizza shopping. You can request a call to confirm your order, but that just takes some of the fun out of it don’t you think?

Anyway, a pizza shop in Dubai isn’t going to enhance my next Saturday night pizza party, but I think their little gadget is a certainly a hint of some really cool things to come our way, but I do have a question, what if  this time I wanted the anchovies?

Nike+ FuelBand – Because Lifes a Game

Posted: 30 Mar 2012 01:10 PM PDT

It’s official, Spring has sprung, not that we ever had much of a Winter. I look out the window this afternoon and my thoughts turn to bathing suits and barbecues, not necessarily in that order. The barbecue sounds great, slapping on a swimsuit after a winter that didn’t involve so much as a single sleigh ride or shoveling session, not so much.

Well it looks like Nike is at the ready to save us from ourselves with their new FuelBand, How active do you wish you were? Let your Nike+ FuelBand know and it will monitor your progress, track your time, steps taken, calories burned and keep tabs on your NikeFuel. Compete with others or against yourself, everyday can be a new challenge.

The Nike FuelBand even looks cool. A high tech bracelet that displays your exercise statistics in LED lights and with the companion app and the Nike+ website your fitness goals are destined to become a reality. Your FuelBand starts the day red and turns from red to yellow to green as you hit your daily fitness goals.

The FuelBand certainly looks more comfortable than some of those larger ”wrist fitness” devices and much more user friendly and accessible than other bands simply because it has a display and the ability to sync wirelessly, the Nike+ FuelBand comes in three sizes and can easily be adjusted for whether you’re wearing it on your right or left wrist. The Fuelband should be aavailable for around 149 bucks, but it is currently sold out at Nike.com  However, go to the website for more info or to sign up to be notified that they are back in stock. In the meantime, less barbecue and more exercise for me.

FireDock by Grace Digital

Posted: 30 Mar 2012 06:30 AM PDT

iPod, iPad and iPhone docks are dime a dozen, but what about numerous other tablets out there in the market? Well, thankfully, third party accessory manufacturers have cast a vision that is far wider than that of just the Apple realm. Take Grace Digital for instance – they are not exactly the type to roll out audio docks for portable media players and smartphones, but I guess they see more than enough potential in the Amazon Kindle Fire to go to the drawing board and make sure that something comes out of the meeting room at the end of the day. We are talking about the FireDock that targets the Amazon Kindle Fire.

This innovative charging speaker dock will come with full-range high quality stereo sound that was developed exclusively to enhance the Kindle Fire's audio and video experience. Of course, the Kindle Fire is not the first device that one would think of when it comes to portable media players, but that does not mean one should just bypass it, considering its strategically placed price point as a tablet. More on the FireDock in the extended post.

The FireDock from will ship this coming July for $129.99 a pop, which might sound rather pricey, but hold on to your horses just yet. There must be a reason for this particular sticker price, and Grace Digital hopes to persuade skeptics by offering a USB port, headphone jack and power button that are located right at the bottom of the tablet. This is in stark contrast to majority of the 3.5mm speaker docks that are available in the market, where they do not offer charging while in use, and life is made difficult when it comes to accessing the device's buttons.

The Grace FireDock will be able to juice up the Kindle Fire while hooked on AC power, and there is also the optional (which is obviously sold separately) lithium-ion battery-pack that paves the way for maximum portability. The rotating cradle of the FireDock is able to holds the 7–inch tablet in a secure manner, regardless of whether you want to place it in horizontal or vertical viewing angles.

Sand Flea robot jumps like its namesake

Posted: 30 Mar 2012 06:00 AM PDT

One of the fantastic facts that you would have come across while growing up would be this – a flea is capable of jumping up many times its own height, and is the Olympic champion in the animal world when it comes to high jump events. And if one were to take a closer look at the technological achievements that humanity have gone through over the years, many of them were inspired by nature and the study of it. Flight, for example, is the dream of man taking to the skies like our feathered friends, although I am quite sure the Wright brothers were not angry when they first achieved the feat.

Robots have certainly come a long way since their inception, although there is still a whole lot of work to be done when it comes to making sure such robots will be able to function alongside humans just like they do in science fiction movies. With the Sand Flea robot, that has certainly taken a right step forward, where it is capable of clearing obstacles simply be jumping over it. Let us take a closer look at the Sand Flea robot right after the jump.

Boston Dynamics is the company behind the Sand Flea robot, where it will feature an updated jumping mechanism after taking over the efforts of Sandia National Laboratories’ Precision Urban Hopper Robot. The Sand Flea is able to come to a complete stop and rear itself up prior to launch, as the CO2-powered piston will fire from the rear. Apart from that, the robot also boasts of a gyroscopic stabilization system which will be able to deliver a more controlled landing while keeping it oriented in flight, so that it can also fulfill its other purpose of capturing and relaying usable video while it is in midair.

The Sand Flea is fully capable of clearing heights of up to 30 feet (9 meters), and can also jump up to 25 times before it requires a trip to the refueling station. Needless to say, the military definitely has an interest in the Sand Flea robot, hence funding its development via DARPA, the Joint IED Defeat Organization (JIEDDO) and the Rapid Equipping Force. The whole idea of the Sand Flea is to provide generals with increased situational awareness in combat situations. Perhaps search and rescue operations would also come under its purview in more peaceful times.

Jot Capacitive Touch Stylus

Posted: 30 Mar 2012 05:30 AM PDT

Since so many devices these days come with a touchscreen display, it makes perfect sense that there are moments when you just do not want to use your fingers to manipulate the icons on the touchscreen display itself, be it when you are busy gorging on a bucket of spicy buffalo wings, or when it is freezing cold out there, and you do not want to remove that comfortable pair of wool gloves. Enter the stylus, but with so many choices in the market, just which direction should you go? The Jot Capacitive Touch Stylus from ThinkGeek might just fit the bill, where it feels as though you are holding a familiar ballpoint pen. It is made out of durable aluminum and steel for the exterior, making you feel as though you are writing like a boss right from the get go.

Those who suck at Draw Something might think that this is because they lack the proper drawing tools, and with the Jot Capacitive Touch Stylus, perhaps it is just what you need to elevate your performance to da Vinci levels. Jot is said to play nice with the majority of screen protectors, but do take note that it will do work with the following – Zagg Glossy, Ghost Armor, Bodyguardz, Skinomi, and Wrapsol.

HeatSync 1200 ultra slim case has iPhone docking station

Posted: 30 Mar 2012 05:00 AM PDT

A-Tech Fabrication has rolled out the HeatSync 1200 ultra slim case, where the main selling point of this puppy would be the option to throw in an iPhone docking station, now how about that? Most of the time, one would have thought that iPhone docks tend to come in the form of an alarm clock or a speaker system, but a working computer chassis? This is definitely something different to consider, and as a mark of respect to make sure the US’ economy continues to be stimulated from within, the HeatSync 1200 ultra slim case is proud to be 100% made in the USA. It boasts a passively cooled design, so you can be sure that without the presence of any fans within, it is going to run whisper quiet.

The mSATA SSD has been integrated into the motherboard itself, while large aluminum fins ensure the optimization of natural convection cooling. There is also an integrated voltage regulator heat conductor that accompanies a fanless external AC power adapter. You can choose from either black or a silver anodized finish. Sounds like a dream, no? It is going to take some time before such a device takes off in a big way, I reckon, how about you?
