Star Wars Boba Fett Headphones

So we’ve looked at Darth Vader drop some serious beats yesterday, and here is Boba Fett who intends to have his own 15 minutes of fame with the Star Wars Boba Fett Headphones. Currently available for pre-order, it is tipped to ship from February 2nd onwards (which isn’t too far away – just 2 days, to be exact) for a highly affordable £34.99. For any serious Star Wars fan, that can be considered to be a bargain.

Wearing this will help you capture the look of the Galaxy’s favorite bounty hunter, where it will sport an adjustable strap which is capable of fitting most head sizes, while a 1.2 meter coiled cord should be adequate for most listeners. This is an officially licensed product that would definitely have serious collectors sit up and take notice, although we’re sure you can get comparable performance from cheaper non-branded headphones.

JAOtech has new LED TV for hospitals

When it comes to HDTVs as well as other flat screen displays, surely you would not have heard of JAOtech but rather stuck with the traditional names such as Sony, Panasonic, Samsung, LG and Mitsubishi among others. JAOtech, isn’t that well known among the consumer circles simply because it is the leading manufacturer of bedside Smart Terminals for hospitals.

Having said that, JAOtech has prepared itself to unveil the world’s first large screen ultra-thin medical LED TV that comes complete with a built-in computer, targeting specifically at healthcare applications such as patient entertainment and clinical access. Known as the 40” Inix, it will hit North America at HIMSS 2011 in Orlando, Florida from February 21st – 24th.

JAOtech will also use the event to introduce a host of other product developments in its Arcos accessories range, where among them include multimedia wall boxes and arms that were specially designed for use with bedside cabinets.

The new JAOtech Inix Smart HD LED TVs will also be pretty similar in terms of features that made its Smart Terminals extremely popular with hospitals around the world. The product itself was designed specially for the medical environment with an IP rated waterproof screen that has been tested against hospital cleaning agents. As for the fan-less embedded computer, it will be powered by the latest Intel Atom processor technology that delivers low noise and power consumption coupled with high reliability and performance.

Of course, to keep up with the rest of the Joneses, the Inix will be able to handle full high definition 1080p resolution with aplomb. This 40” model is extremely thin at a mere 1.6” thick, although this is definitely nowhere near the super slim LED TVs that we saw at CES earlier this year.

Apart from that, the Inix is compatible with JAOtech’s newly developed gesture remote control that sports a full keyboard on the back, making it the perfect tool for inputting data or writing emails. Apart from that, the TV will also play nice with JAOtech’s existing Wyki wireless keyboard.

iCar has discovered the secret of flight: It’s the wheels

I always love to report on flying cars as much as I can.

This one, which is called the iCar, doesn’t need any wings or magic to fly but uses specially designed wheels. Apparently round spinning surfaces can create lift, which is called the Magnus Effect.

The iCar takes advantage of the Magnus Effect to turn its wheels into wings. On the ground, the iCar is a one seater sports car with four traditional wheels and giant cylindrical hubs. To get airborne, it extends its hubs outward to create a larger lifting surface, the hubcaps on the two front wheels swivel forward to turn into propellers, and the car is ready for takeoff. As it starts to move forward, the cylinder wings spin (driven by electric motors), and they generate enough lift to get the iCar airborne in about 1,500 feet.

Apparently, the car has a range of about 500 miles and has a cruising speed of 200 miles per hour.

As you can see, the iCar is in its concept stage, which is visible in this particular mock-up. I’m not certain what it is called the iCar, generally that small “i” gets associated with Apple products. Still, I hope to see this sometime flying over me someday.

Over the Top is a 17 x 17 x17 Rubik’s Cube

For some reason, I just can’t get enough of Rubik’s Cube stuff. Remember the Rubik’s Slide Puzzle and the Gear Wheel IQ? Not to mention the Scruble Cube that combines the puzzle cube with everyone’s favorite puzzle game of Scrabble.

I don’t know why I am obsessed with this thing, perhaps it is because I am into tech things, and most people who are into tech things can solve that dang cube that I have never been able to solve.

I would like to see someone solve this particular cube, which was designed by Oskar van Deventer. It is a 17×17x17 puzzle cube printed using Shapeways, which I believe is a 3D printing place for specially made items like this one.

This is one of those times where I have to doubt whether the item I am reporting on is legitimate. After all, I don’t even know if there is a way to twist something that looks to be rather large.

Still, you got to like how it has a black frame around the edges. In case you doubt whether or not this is genuine or not, this 17 x 17 x 17 Rubik’s Cube, also known as Over The Top, will be on display at the New York Puzzle Party Symposium on Saturday, February 12th.
