Geneva WorldRadio announced

They say that man does not live on bread alone, and those folks are absolutely correct. After all, what is the point of life if there is no music? Long before there were movies to entertain folks en masse, there is the radio. I guess you can say that radio programs are the equivalent of books, especially when those require you to make use of your imagination. Movies are definitely an art form that is worth watching, but the directors (and special effects team these days) tend to do all of the “thinking” on your behalf, so much so that your imagination more or less remains in a dormant manner. Well, if you want to get back to the world of radio, perhaps you can do so in style with the WorldRadio from Geneva?

Yes sir, the Geneva WorldRadio is a contemporary take on the classic world receiver, where the world receiver is actually a radio which had the operational capability of receiving all of the available radio stations simply by using the broadcasting technologies of that particular era, such as FM, long, and short waves. Fast forward to today, and you will find that majority of the popular local radio stations will be broadcast over FM, while select European countries decide to take the DAB digital radio route, and of course, how can we leave out the thousands of other Internet radio stations?

You can say that the new Geneva WorldRadio would be a converging point for all the above mentioned, since with just a single device, you are able to access to the complete offering of today’s radio stations, in addition to what the classic world receiver did for generations prior. Just what does the Geneva WorldRadio pack? Of course, it boasts of a powerful audio system, a digital color display with touch controls, a digital FM tuner, Bluetooth capability to go wireless if you want that vision for your home, and an alarm clock, all crammed into an elegant, streamlined chassis with aluminum handle and tuning controls.

You can pick up the Geneva WorldRadio from next month onwards in silver, red, and black metallic finishes for $299.95 a pop.

HOT GIFT ALERT: Laser Virtual Keyboard

One of the really cool things about our Gift Picker is it shows us what gadgets and gizmos people are most interested in. Top of the list at the moment (not really surprising as it’s so cool) is the Cube Laser Virtual Keyboard. It wasn’t long ago that this would of been a conceptual gadget, now it’s a reality, so what more can we tell you about it…

The laser keyboard wirelessly connects to your tablet, phone, laptop (or any other compatible gadget that could benefit from a keyboard) via bluetooth. It then projects a full size 63 key QWERTY keyboard onto any flat service which you can then tap on like a regular keyboard. It has a detection rate of 400 characters per minute which will be more than adequate for the majority of us. It can also be used as a mouse replacement, in this mode you swipe your finger on the virtual mouse pad, kind of like touch screen. You charge the virtual keyboard via USB, a full charge will give you 150 minutes typing charge.

The laser virtualkeyboard is currently on sale at ThinkGeek for $149.99.

Korg MicroStation redefines creative songwriting process

If you are a songwriter who is stuck in a rut at this point in time, and need some sort of external stimuli or inspiration, then you might be interested to check out the new Korg MicroStation which is said to be able to re-define the entire creative songwriting process. Just what kind of features do you think that the new MicroStation is capable of delivering? Well, it might come in a small form factor, but it will definitely be unable to burn a huge hole in your pocket, as it will have an even smaller price. Not only that, the MicroStation itself will also be accompanied by additional benefits such as being a songwriting tool, thanks to its quick and intuitive onboard sequencer for recording. Beginners will find it to be an ideal platform as a live keyboard, while guitar players are able to look at it easily, laying down some drum tracks along the way.

The Korg MicroStation itself will be plugged into your laptop or tablet without missing a beat, where you will then be able to enjoy a top-notch personal music tool which Korg claims to be very different from the other tools in the market. When something is compact, it is naturally portable, and so we bring you word that the MicroStation will feature Korg’s 61-key Natural Touch mini keyboard, a bunch of other effects, dual arpeggiators and 16 tracks of MIDI recording power which are more than capable of transforming musical ideas into polished productions.

Being the ideal first keyboard, the Korg MicroStation is also a welcome addition to any studio or home. In order to offer more benefits to novice sequencer users, the bunch of new features such as easily accessible Loop Recording and Visual Grid Sequencing have been thrown into the mix to jump-start any type of music production, never mind if you have no idea on just where to start. Thanks to its 61-key Natural Touch Mini-Keyboard, it is easy to play, and the proportion of the black keys and white keys has been adjusted accordingly, ensuring that the chords are comfortable to play, while the entire feel was designed to allow rapid phrases to be performed with ease.

Future LEGO Clock?

If you are a frequent visitor to CG odds are that you have tinkered with something in your life. Maybe you tried to make your mom’s frying pan into a flying saucer. Or maybe you created a robot that would take your clothes to the hamper. Not all of the tinkering succeeds. But our minds keep trying!

Meet Hans Andersson, a Swedish gentlemen who bought his daughters a LEGO® Mindstorm kit a few years back. They did not take to the kit, but Hans did, and created some new robots. A few years later – after creating a Rubik’s Cube solver and Sudoku solver – he tried a LEGO clock. He has now revised the Time Twister and posted a look at Time Twister 2. It is sort of a LCD looking clock made entirely of LEGO. Watch the video below to see it in action, but envision digit segments connected in a chain. The start of the chain must keep spinning – in either direction – until the last segment is in place. Why? Only one motor is required per digit. Digits are created using LEGO Mindstorms NXT Intelligent Bricks. Time Twister 2 looks much more stylish that the original. So perhaps Hans will gain some attention with this go around. Maybe we will be able to buy one of his creations someday. But if nothing else, let’s applaud Mr. Andersson on his mastery of something we all appreciate – tinkering.

Finger Friend for Your Tablet

Just when we all got used to this darn mouse thing these darn tablets have to come along. And face it, they can do many of the daily tasks of a computer. I know many of you have migrated away from laptop where possible. Touchscreens are easy and intuitive. Yet there are still some minor actions and motions where touching still remains a challenge.

Welcome to better touchscreen control. Ringbow proves to make navigation on a touchscreen as smooth as possible.  There are two ways to use Ringbow. First, At-Distance control where you interact with the screen without touching, whether sitting near or far from the screen. This obviously leaves your fingers free. The other option, Touch Flavor as Ringbow calls it, is a combination of control via the device and the users touch, essentially doubling your capabilities. Swipe while using Ringbow to fire on a game. Or imagine editing a document on your pad. You need to back up and make a correction. Fat fingers sometimes make it challenging to pinpoint where you want to be. With Ringbow simply click back/forth. To use, just pair the gadget via Bluetooth – so any Bluetooth enabled device is compatible. Slip the unit on your index finger for ultimate mastery of the 9-directional controller. Just click or move in various directions to accomplish your goal. Check the video below to see Ringbow in action. First shipments deliver in December, so get your order in. Slate black runs $55, colors are $65 and the Multi-Player pack gives you two colored units for $118. Learn more or place your orders now at Ringbow.com. And learn a new way to navigate that tablet.

See Baby From Anywhere

Hey parents, what was it like the first night you had your child(ren) home and you turned on the baby monitor? Did you jump at the first sound? Let me guess – constantly peeking in to check on baby? I’m assuming it was nerve wracking. For current parents of young ones you could probably use any device that may help instill more confidence in what may be happening in baby’s room – whether 10 feet away or across the country.

BabyPing provides the perfect baby monitor solution to give you peace of mind thanks to technology. It consists of a square monitor, less than 3.5” x 3.5”. On the monitor are a video camera, microphone and infrared LEDs to light up the room. Don’t worry, LEDs won’t be too bright for baby to sleep and they adjust to exterior lighting. Mount the monitor where you get the best view of baby and where you can plug the monitor in. Included with the monitor are a mount and things to make setup easy. Once you have the monitor in place, connect it to your router via cable or wi-fi. Then download the BabyPing or BabyPing+ app to your Apple iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch (iOS 4 or greater). The app will find the BabyPing monitor on your network and connect you. Voila! Baby is on your i device. With BabyPing app you can watch from anywhere within the network. And you can even restrict access. For those that travel away from home definitely download BabyPing+ which enables remote viewing too. And yes, password protection and encryption are involved so not just anyone can see baby.

This seems like such a natural evolution of technology. Our busy lives mean home time is far from peaceful, work often takes us away from town and relatives may not live nearby. BabyPing provides a great solution to help with busyness. Rest assured while at home that baby is safe and sound – while not having to barge into the room every 5 minutes. If you are back to work after maternity leave or on business travel log in anytime to see the little bambino. Or if relatives live far away give them access to see the bundle of joy. And to top that off, BabyPing is offering a sale at the moment too! Shipping from UK, BabyPing is available for £132 (normally £165). And if shipping from the US, pick up the unit for $199 (normally $249). I find  very few reasons why parents – or those with parents on their shopping list – wouldn’t want to have or give this peace of mind.

Razer DeathAdder mouse gets an update

Just how do you improve on something that is deemed to be already perfect? Well, I guess the answer is pretty simple – technology and time would have progressed to turn where what was perfect as obsolete, and here we are with an update of the Razer DeathAdder mouse which is touted to deliver additional power, superior performance as well as more control than ever before. The house of trusted and proven gaming peripherals, Razer, has just announced that they have delivered an update to the hugely popular Razer DeathAdder mouse, and it is being set for launch.

The first release of the Razer DeathAdder happened half a dozen years ago – which is a really, really long time in the world of technology. Well, until now, it has remained as the best-selling gaming mouse in the world, and has seen use by countless pro gamers throughout the years in the circuit as their preferred weapon of annihilation – or defense, depending on the situation, of course.

Well, the spanking new Razer DeathAdder’s optical sensor has been given a nice kick in the butt, where it has been upgraded from 3.5G all the way to a cutting-edge 4G infrared sensor. Needless to say, this upgrade would mean improved performance and precision, where it is touted to be the world’s most powerful optical sensor, being able to achieve up to 6400 dpi resolution without having to sacrifice the natural tracking feel of an optical sensor, and neither does it yield the robotic sensation of a comparable laser option.

Coming in its iconic right-handed ergonomic shape, this is definitely a drawback for southpaws. After all, only right handers are able to use the new DeathAdder (and the old, of course), but the hardware now features a built-in textured rubber side grips to deliver better mouse control and grip. Synapse 2.0 support has also been thrown into the mix, and the new Razer DeathAdder will retail for $69.99 if you live Stateside, or if you are residing across the pond, it will cost you €69.99.
