Intel Drone100 At Sydney’s Vivid Festival

Jun 10, 2016

Last evening De and I were privileged to attend a performance of Drone 100 at the Sydney Opera House. This is a computer aided light show using 100 remote controlled drones simultaneously flying over the harbour (in this case, Farm Cove, to the east of the Opera House) with a musical accompaniment by the Sydney Youth Orchestra. I’m a fairly jaded...

It’s only been in our hands for a few hours so we’ve taken the second generation of the Wacom Bamboo graphics tablets out for a spin to show you just how the new touch functionality with gesture control works.

Take a look...

May 27, 2009

It seems like everyone’s getting in on the whole “touchscreen phone” thing. We’ve talked before about some of Samsung’s touchscreen devices as early as our second radio show, and while those handsets felt a lot like they were playing on the same turf as the iPhone, the new Samsung UltraTouch is a handset with a different feel to...

CeBIT 2009: Digital Microscopes

May 13, 2009

You’d think that with the giant technology show that is CeBIT, there’d be a huge amount of amazing & unique technology on display for the average consumer to gaze upon. We thought so too. We were apparently wrong, however. That said, despite CeBIT lacking a lot, there were still a few things that were so cool, we had to get out our camera and...
