Smallest Computer Ever

Tiny-fingered researchers at the University of Michigan have created this computer, the world's first complete millimeter-scale computing system. It is a prototype designed to be implanted in a human eye, to monitor internal pressure there for signs of glaucoma.

The machine includes a teeny battery, a consolidated radio and antenna, a pressure sensor, memory, and a rather diminutive processor designed to consume extremely little power. For reference it was placed on top of penny to show just how small it is. We have come a long way since computers from the very beginning were room sized until now where they are smaller than a penny. That is not all, in the works are microscopic computers that could create the smallest technological devices of our time. Cant wait.

Nokia Kinetic Phone Concept and HTC 1 Concept

I was looking online for a new phone as my current mytouch3g is complete crap and i came across a beast named Kinetic, not to be confused with the Kinetic from the Xbox-360. Although it is nothing but a concept phone by British designer Jeremy Innes-Hopkins, there is always that slight possibility of actually being released. The most amazing thing from the phone is that it will have an electromagnet at its base allowing for creative ways for the phone to lay down or stand up.If any of you saw the film Iron-Man then you probably know what an electromagnet is.

Now that Nokia has made a deal with Microsoft to put it's operating system on their phones, if this in fact releases it might as well run windows 7 mobile. I would much rather have it run Android 100% as the possibilities are endless. The design is so sleek and just amazing to look at. Hopefully Nokia does things right and releases this phone and ill spend my time trying to put Android OS on it.


HTC 1 Concept

HTC is no stranger to making kick ass phones and what is great is they are powered by Android. Well this phone is also just another concept this time by someone named Andrew Kim. This phone's design is elegant and clean and it just looks so tempting to put in your hands. The screen is supposed to be purposefully curved to a degree to create guesses as to how it will affect its use. It also conceptualized to make use of a new and improved Sense UI, which is HTC's signature user interface for their phones. Also it is made to have a silver-plated brass body and a built in UV light to kill off germs on its surface as you charge it.  I hope at least one of the other releases.

If these two phones are ever released I will have a hard time choosing but I am pretty sure ill end up with the HTC 1 for its elegance and for having the power of Android inside.

Creepy Ass Japanese Robot Baby (Afetto)

 Robot Rising

Japanese researchers have or better yet, are building this creepy ass hell robot baby to study cognitive movement. Asada’s team, which are the inventors and builders, came up with "Affetto", which can produce a wide range of facial expressions by moving actuators in its face which create the creepy facial movements. It can look inquisitive, happy, surprised, upset and more, by tilting its eyebrows, moving its jaw, panning its eyes and tilting its head. Its eyeballs are equipped with cameras and it has microphones and tactile sensors embedded in its silicone skin,giving this thing a pretty realistic appearance.This project is playing an effort to develop a full bodied robot that resembles a human as most realistically as possible. In my other post you see what our future world may look like and if your a fan of this setting you can thank Japanese researchers for doing so.

Robots and Human: Future World

 Pretty interesting post about humans and robots in a future where we will live side by side one another.

"The future is not written yet and who knows whether robots are dangerous or not. What is for sure is that humans, being the curious beings, will develop new advanced generations of robots.

It happens so that people and robots go together in this life side by side, in some spheres of life they are even interchangeable and who knows into what this opposition “Human and Robots” will translate. Robots and humans that live and prosper together…Or robots will realize they don’t need that much…

For now it is up to out fantasy to express what we think will happen in human-robot relations in the future. This is a collection of 3d computer generated images of various creative 3d artists that shows their vision. The level of detail of these computer graphics shows that our technology will lead us to the point where these fantastic photographs will be the reality."  -

$1000 Keyboard

Tired of regular old keyboards? Well look no further than this $1000 piece of equipment for your computer. Its a keyboard, but..... it has little screens for each key. That's right, every key in this keyboard is a miniature OLED screen, so long to the old physical keys. Called the "Art Lebedev Optimus Popularis", this thing right here is awesome. Well the pricing is rumored to be around $1000 and under but who knows, if I had money to blow I would get this in an instant. Oh yea it seems its is delayed for some reason but it will make a debut later this year.

                                    I want this beautiful piece of technology.

Invisible U.S Army Soldier?

This video is relatively not well known but shows something very amazing. It was captured by militants in the middle east probably in Afghanistan or Iraq, but they captured what they labeled as a soldier wearing a secret invisibility suit. When I first saw the video I was like holy crap, looks like one of those video game special effects making you invisible. Knowing the powerhouse and technology from U.S Army this may well be already a common use in the war over there but kept top secret. Besides if they are almost invisible it would be pretty hard to capture it on camera for the rest of the world to see. I personally believe its no doubt a special suit for the military and its awesome. See the vid below courtesy of militants spying on some U.S soldiers.

Its just a matter of time before that suit from the game "Crysis" starts rolling out.

SeGa Piss Game

Sega has placed a game in a Japanese bathroom to um.. offer a better user experience and advertise as well. Japan is well known for its weird but cool stuff and this thing is just another one of those. The games objective is to aim your piss at the target in the bathroom stall as seen on the video and try to get the most points. At the moment its only for male bathrooms and you can guess why. It looks very entertaining to say the least. Some of the reasons of putting such a game in a bathroom is too "help keep bathrooms cleaner" according to the establishment. See the video for yourself right below.
