Here’s a product that intrigued me, but I can’t really nail down why. It’s not immediately apparent what sort of problem this solves. But it was interesting enough that I’d love to see if anyone out there sees a use for libraries. I’m going to see how it works for writing practice with my daughter, so there could be an instructional use for toddlers…
Here’s a look at color eInk, the next generation of the technology currently found in just about every eReader on the market. This particular screen (the eInk Triton display) is good for just over 4000 colors, and certainly isn’t the fastest page-turn we’ve seen…but the display is very, very pretty. Great contrast, sharp lines, and the color really adds a lot to the feel of the thing. Check it out:
InFocus Mondopad from CES 2012
Some more video from CES 2012, this time a new presentation/smartboard from InFocus with some interesting features, the best of which didn’t make the video. I was told after I stopped filming that the software that drives it can use the Windows web tools/IIS to make the display publicly available to the web…so with just an IP address, you could share everything that was happening on the board to the world. That’s pretty cool!
OLPC XO Tablet
Really slick design, and SugarOS is awesome for kids. Bad news? They don’t have any retail plans nor a manufacturer.
CES 2012, Day One
Today is a travel day, mostly, but tonight will be check-in at the show and CES Unveiled, the first press event of CES 2012. I’ll be streaming live from CES Unveiled as long as my signal holds out.
