Wacom Bamboo Stylus duo lets you write in ink as well

Posted: 12 Apr 2012 06:30 AM PDT

When it comes to digitizer tablets, we more or less have heard of the name ‘Wacom’, and it has certainly stamped its mark in the digital artist category to date with their stable of quality accessories and peripherals. Well, since they are involved in tablet devices (of sorts) for quite some time already, it makes perfect sense for Wacom to diversify their range of peripherals by coming up with the Wacom Bamboo Stylus duo.

Just what does the Wacom Bamboo Stylus duo do in your possession? For starters, the name itself drops a hint of it being a new dual-purpose stylus, targeting the millions of iPad and Android-powered tablet owners out there (PlayBook owners qualify too, but just what percentage of the tablet market is snapped up by the BlackBerry PlayBook?) with a proven capacitive pen tip for on-screen input at one end of the Stylus.

To further enhance its appeal, the Wacom Bamboo Stylus duo will also feature a premium ball-point ink pen at the opposite end which you can use in tandem with traditional paper. It will naturally come in an elegant design and quality craftsmanship just like the rest of its products, and is perfect for writing or drawing, whether you are involved in the digital or analog world.

To commemorate the release of the Wacom Bamboo Stylus duo, Wacom has also introduced Bamboo Paper, a free digital notebook app which has already passed the 2.5 million download mark on the iPad, although this time it will target users who dabble with the Android Market (better known as Google Play now). Bamboo Paper will basically let you create and share handwritten notes, doodles and sketches on your mobile devices.

Expect the Wacom Bamboo Stylus duo to arrive sometime in the middle of this month onwards, with an accompanying $39.95 price point.

Epson PowerLite X15 projector

Posted: 12 Apr 2012 06:00 AM PDT

Epson does not only churn out printers, but they do have a mean collection of projectors as well. One of the latest projector models to be released by Epson to the masses would be the PowerLite X15, where it is said to target small- and medium-sized classrooms in addition to conference rooms, all for a mere $599.

The Epson PowerLite X15 will oust the extremely popular PowerLite 92, and just to get a rough idea on why size does not matter, this new projector is capable of delivering up to 3,000 lumens color and white light output in XGA resolution, as well as sporting advanced connectivity without breaking the bank for home users or small organizations and educational institutions.

Just what kind of bang for your hard earned buck does the Epson PowerLite X15 offer? For starters, it will come with an advanced feature set, where among it includes HDMI digital connectivity which allows you to hook it up to the latest devices, delivering high-quality video and digital audio in the process. There is also USB Plug ‘n Play which will pave the way for instant projection of video and audio from a PC or Mac using a USB connection.

Do remember that the projector also comes with an easy setup process which is known as Easy-Slide technology, where it delivers an intuitive horizontal keystone adjustment slide control bar which will enable teachers to place the projector off-center from the screen while making the necessary horizontal image adjustments with a single touch of a finger.

Epson’s exclusive E-TORL lamp technology ensures that the lamp life is capable of lasting up to 5,000 hours in economy mode, which will also do its bit to maximize presentation time. A built-in closed captioning decoder also enables your presentations to be accessible to students who have hearing impairments without having to fork out extra money, while complying to ADA section 508 compliance. Expect the Epson PowerLite X15 projector to arrive in markets later this May.

Keypad Hidden Time Watch

Posted: 12 Apr 2012 05:30 AM PDT

Now here is a timepiece that would definitely get people thinking when they take a look at your wrist – after all, the $99.99 Keypad Hidden Time Watch is far different from what we have seen so far, where it will tell the time in either the 12 or 24 hour format, depending on what floats your boat, alongside the date. You can opt for either black or ivory shades – I would go for the former simply because it would mean an easier time to keep it “clean”, as you would find it far harder to spot flaws on a dark surface than something which is light colored.

This quirky watch is a surefire conversation starter, as it resembles a small 10-key number pad on your wrist. Most folks who ask you for the time will be perplexed as you show them the Keypad Hidden Time Watch. Actually, to read the time is a snap, all you need to do is push any of the number keys, and the time will light up a single digit at the time.

Nutritional Scale helps you control your diet

Posted: 12 Apr 2012 05:00 AM PDT

How many of us actually bother to read the nutritional label that is printed on the box of snacks and cereal that we picked up at the supermarket? I suppose if we are too lazy to do so, or are one who is on the other extreme, calculating calories with each and every single morsel of food that we take, then the $69.95 Nutritional Scale might be just the perfect device to have at home. Touted to be the most accurate and only model that measures calcium, magnesium, and potassium, the nutritional readings on this puppy were compared to the USDA Nutrient Database, deviating all of just 0.56% for fat and 2.41% for calories, making it the best in the market so far when compared to its peers which actually deviated by as much as 181.41% and 20.73%, respectively.

It can store up to 99 entries, and allows you to track your daily nutrition. There lies a 50″ square food platform which is far more generous than what other scales offer, and can weigh up to 11 lb. portions, which is nearly double that of its rivals. A quartet of AAA batteries will run this thing, and I don’t think it will take up too much juice to warrant a new set of rechargeable batteries to go along with it.

If you own a Nintendo, have a man cave but you don’t have a beer coffee table this could be the ultimate geeky solution, the fully functional Nintendo Controller Coffee Table.

The table is actually a high quality piece of furniture, made from maple, mahogany, walnut with dove tail joints (the more expensive the material the more expensive the cost). When used as a coffee table mode, it has a glass top to prevent beer drinks causing your buttons to get sticky, but remove the glass and connect the retractable cord to your NES and you have a fully functional controller.
