Not strictly handheld: fridge converted into a giant Game Boy

September 13, 2015 by Tom in Uncategorized, Video with No Comments.

Taking the handheld classic and converting it into a chilled out kitchen appliance, student Daniel d'Entremont has updated the Nintendo favourite into a Raspberry Pi 2 powered dorm fridge. Painstakingly created, the Game Boy fridge comprises a hollowed out door with a set-back divot to make room for the fascia containing the buttons, electronics and the LCD display. The display was reclaimed from an old monitor and the Raspberry Pi 2 system runs a Game Boy emulator so all the classics are at his fingertips (well, palms, looking at the size of the controls). Check out a video of the creation here. Via slashgear

Xiaomi Mi Box Mini media streamer goes global at $50

March 11, 2015 by Tom in Uncategorized, Video with No Comments.

The tiny Xiaomi Mi Box Mini launched in China in January and is now available internationally through resellers. It's averaging at around $50, which is a bit more than the super-low $32 it costs in China but still reasonable for a solid streamer. Apple has just cut the price of Apple TV but the Mi Box is still considerably cheaper. It runs on a 1.3GHz MediaTek MT8685 quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 processor and packs 1GB of RAM and 4GB storage. Output is via HDMI and it supports H.264, H.265 codecs and MPEG 1/2/4 and VP8 video all at 1080p. Streaming's possible via Bluetooth 4.0 or dual-band WiFi. All in a tiny plug socket sized box.

Hong Kong has many great things to offer: fantastic food, scenic city scenes, excellent public transportation and the warmth of over crowding (?). One that may even top this list is the massive electronics scene. An example of this greatness is the latest version of Android - 4.0 AKA Ice Cream Sandwich - that was spotted on a smartphone at an electronics event recently held in this fine city. From what we can gather in terms of improved features from the older versions are as follows: (click after the break) Facial recognition unlock Direct Android screenshot New Gmail, calendar, contacts, app interface, widgets and photo gallery Upgraded notifications Android Beam - NFC file transfer Cloud service for photos and panorama mode for camera Virtual keys as opposed to phy

Video: Even More Android On The HP TouchPad, Thanks To CyanogenMod 7

September 19, 2011 by Alex in Android, Android News, Android Tablet, HP, Tablet, Video with No Comments.

The HP TouchPad's steal price of $99 resulted in an tsunami of sales which put WebOS into the hands of many, but that wasn't enough, or rather WebOS wasn't enough. The people wanted more, and more they shall have. Through the skills of developers, Android started appearing on the tablet - slow but steady. We've already blogged about the progression of having the Android Touchscreen working, well now we've got more.  Find out what after the break. Thanks to the CyanogenMod 7 ROM, there's now a working Google Android Marketplace despite its slightly skewed main page due to the 9.7-inch screen of the tablet - what evs', it still works! The ROM also brings live wallpaper, and a smooth one at that - Koi fishes in a pond that ripples when touched. The video below also shows a smooth ru

Video: Hands On With the Windows 8 Tablet at BUILD 2011

September 16, 2011 by Alex in Tablet, Video, Windows Tablet with No Comments.

From leaked images to official announcement, we now have a full scope on the Windows 8 Samsung tablet, especially with this great hands on video from Slashgear that first shows us the tablet itself, and then delves into the UI of Windows 8 OS. The Windows 8 tablet was officially revealed and detailed by Microsoft at the BUILD 2011 event, showing off the tablet, its dock and the attachable keyboard, although according to the video, the online keyboard works just as well. The video itself greatly details Windows OS and what it offers. It starts off annoyingly but necessarily sped up as it goes through the physicality of the tablet, but slows to real time as it gets to the good stuff. Check out the good looking Windows 8 OS (although a tad bit laggy) from the video after the break. v

Video: The HP TouchPad Gets Touch Screen Working With Android

September 7, 2011 by Alex in Android, Android News, Android Tablet, HP, Tablet, Video with 1 Comment.

Every since the TouchDroid team managed to boot Android on the HP TouchPad, they've been hard at work to get the tablet fully functional with its new OS. Well they've taken a step closer towards that goal by enabling the touchscreen. Not only that, they've also managed to get it working with 10 point finger-touch input - a most impressive feat. Although the TouchDroid team still have their work cut out for them as there's still no confirmation on whether the tablet's other features will be compatible with Android or not, such as GPS, WiFi Radio, etc. Still, it looks like the biggest hurdles have been passed. Check out the video below showing the TouchPad's 10 point finger-touch response after the break. via ubergizmo
