Sony 3D Display Prototype

Look Ma, no glasses. Sony has jumped on the 3D bandwagon with their prototype 360º Display. Debuted at this week's Tokyo's Digital Contents Expo, it stands about 10.6" with a diameter of 5.1". With support for 24-bit 96x128 resolution color, this may just be the next generation of digital frames. The company also plans to launch an LCD TV with 3D capability, and will build in support into the PS3, VAIO laptops and Blu-ray players.

Freakin' Friday! iXP3 Internet Message Clock

ixp3clock.png

What better way to network with those far away than with the iXP3 Internet Message Clock? Using 'persistence of vision' technology, it floats time, date and temperature as well as messages to those you love, hate or just want to bug. You don't need a PC, you simply plug it into the Interweb and display messages up to 200 characters almost immediately. The clock can store up to 50 messages and gives a whole new meaning to chat.

Sanyo Rectangular Albo Frame

Sanyo_ALBO.jpg

Sanyo has a new digital frame with 7" LCD. The Albo has a 800x480 resolution, 500MB of memory and 0.5 mono speakers. Supporting SD/SDHC, Memory Stick and USB, the frame can play JPEGs, MP3s and Motion-JPEG videos. We like the design that proves that a digital frame doesn't have to be a square (well, rectangle) to be cool.

Networking With Contact Lens

digitalcontacts.jpg

This may not be NAV's usual forte, but we thought it appropriate when we really thought about it. Since 2004, scientists and eye surgeons at the University of Washington have been working on a contact lens that features a built-in LED and will wirelessly monitor vital signs. In addition, it may some day have an interface for social networking and gaming. The team integrated miniature antennas, radio chips and control circuits using optoelectronic components that may eventually display images, words and charts.

People of Walmart Truly Unique

flameshoes.jpg

We had to share the site People of Walmart. We know that it is with fondness that they post images of some of the oddities that grace the aisles and parking lot (dig the flaming shoes!) Started by a couple that saw someone there that seemed unique, the site has an ongoing contest that will award the best photo a $100.00 gift card per month, from Wallyworld, of course.
