Sporting an Apple-like monolithic design and gobs of high technology, the Sony Bravia NX800 HDTV ($2,300-$3,500; March 2010) is one of the Japanese electronics giant's sexiest yet. Features include a full HD 1080p, edge LED-backlit LCD screen in either 46-, 52-, or 60-inch sizes, Motionflow 240Hz technology for smooth on-screen motion, integrated Wi-Fi, and ambient light sensor, Sony's Bravia Internet Video and Internet Widgets, the Bravia Engine 3 video processor, and both USB and DLNA support for photos, music, and video playback.
Single sided deafness affects around 200 out of every million people the world over. The loss of stereo hearing can prove dangerous when crossing the street, or other mobile environments. Sonitus Medical has developed a new device, SoundBite, that uses the natural conduction of teeth and bone to transmit sound to the inner ear even after the outer and middle ear are damaged.
SoundBite detects noise using a microphone placed in the ear connected to a transmitter in a behind-the-ear (BTE) device. The BTE transmits to an in-the-mouth (ITM) device that sends small sound waves through the jaw to the cochlea. There is no surgery needed, and both the BTE and ITM are easily removed to be charged inductively. Sonitus Medical is still preparing the SoundBite for eventual FDA trials for single sided, and (eventually) other forms of deafness.
There are other hearing aid devices that utilize bone conduction. Most, however, use a titanium pin drilled into the jaw bone (or skull) to transmit sound to the cochlea. SoundBite seems to be the first non-surgical, non-invasive, easily removable device. While they are likely years from retail production, Sonitus Medical plans on having SoundBite ITMs fitted to each individual’s upper back teeth and fabricated fairly quickly (1 to 2 weeks). A complete system is planned to include two ITMs, 1 BTE, and a charger. In the wider world of cochlear implants, SoundBite may only be fit for relatively specialized use. Still, the ability to easily upgrade or replace individual components makes the device competitive. A similar device could be adapted to provide audio for a personalized augmented reality system. Perhaps the Bluetooth headset of the future will involve actual teeth.Via Singularity Hub
Just a hunch here, but we're guessing that Alienware's CES stash all hit the production line at right about the same time. During the past day, we've seen the company's M15x, M17x and OptX AW2310 hit the shipping stage, the latter of which is the firm's first-ever 3D monitor. Checking in at 23-inches and boasting a full 1080p panel, this one also packs a 3 millisecond response time, 120Hz refresh rate and stereoscopic support when NVIDIA's GeForce 3D Vision Kit is utilized. It's up for order right now at $469, but if you follow that Logicbuy link down there, you'll be able to snag it (for a limited time) for $449.10. Too bad that 3D kit will set you back another $200, but hey, no one said that witnessing the third dimension was cheap. Or remotely interesting. But mostly cheap.
Rumors suggest that Canon is leaving no stone unturned for a February launch for its EOS 60D DSLR and the Canon 550D/600D. No doubt that Canon has been feeling the heat of the competition from Sony with its point-and-shoots waterproof cameras and Nikon with its swivel-screen displays.
The Canon 60D may inherit 50D’s metallic body and 15.1 MP resolution but it’s likely to have an improved sensor and offer low-light sensitivity. The new Rebel would be of a smaller size than the existing Rebel T1i and would be capable of at least 720p30 video.
Watch out for Canon’s possible announcements at PMA Photography Expo on 20th February, 2010 for more.
I guess when you're rich, you can really go green: UK soccer star Gary Neville is building an 8-million-pound eco house in the Bolton countryside, designed by London's Make Architects, and to say the house will have a green roof is an understatement--the entire structure blends into a gently rolling hill, like a really expensive Hobbit house.
Neville's got a reputation as a green, so it's unsurprising that in addition to the earth-based insulation, he'lll have solar panels and a wind turbine to generate juice. And that little car you see in the driveway? Probably a Prius, as that's what Neville's been known to drive.via treehugger
Maybe I've been watching too many Stargate reruns or maybe the AirMouse hand-mounted input device was really inspired by Goa'uld technology. Either way, I'm skeptical about its ability to prevent repetitive stress injuries.
The wireless device is made of a "lightweight durable fabric that seamlessly aligns itself with the ligaments of your hand and wrist" and will supposedly go for a full week without charging. If you want one though—be it for computing or for some evil deeds—you'll have to wait six to twelve months and spend about $130. [AirMouse via Gizmag via Make]
This Wireless Page to TV Magnifier transmits your texts wirelessly to your TV so you can read the words in comfort. No cables, no problemo. The fact that you can also kick back on the couch and enjoy Moby Dick from 10 feet probably means less wear and tear on the back muscles too eh? Although we’re not too sure how easy it’s going to be to keep the scanner moving accurately while focusing your attention on the big screen. $149.95.
As easy to use as a computer mouse, this device scans written materials and sends them wirelessly to your television set in real time, magnifying them up to 25X for easy viewing of fine print. The wireless magnifier’s bright 655 x 488 pixel handheld scanner picks up every detail of a picture or every letter of a word and transfers data to its base station (that plugs into your TV) which then sends it to your television screen…
Nikon's D300S isn't exactly tailor made for D300 owners, but for those waiting patiently to jump into the semi-pro DSLR game, it offers up a pretty delightful array of specs. Boasting SD and CF slots, a 720p movie mode and 12.3 megapixels of sharp shooting goodness, this here cam received overwhelmingly positive reviews late last year. Strategically positioned between the full-frame D700 and the lesser-specced D90, we're sure the D300S found its way into quite a few hearts (and under quite a few trees) between then and now. If you've been firing off snaps with one of these for a few months now, we're curious to know how you'd tweak things if the power were yours. Does the "S" really add enough to the D300 package to warrant the boost in price? How's the image quality? Is the video mode a-okay for your purposes? Spill your heart out in comments below -- we're here to hold your hand if necessary.
Remember at CES when all of the companies were like “We’ll convert your 2D to 3D?” Yeah, ummm, nah. What will happen is that studios will back-convert some of their old movies – or movies not shot in 3D – to 3D using a time-consuming, partially automated process. Like in love, the first cut is the deepest:
The first step is to separate the shot into somewhere between two and eight layers of depth. Take, for example, an image of a man standing in front of a brick wall, with a blue sky behind the wall. The graphic artist might separate the shot into three layers: the man, the wall, and the sky. Then, he would take each layer and draw contour lines around any object that appeared there. He’d start by marking depth lines on the man using a computer, turning the image into a sort of topographical map. He’d repeat the process for any objects in the other layers. (If there were a bird in the sky, he’d draw lines there, too.)
This creates layers that the computer can then ‘tween based on surround frames. If the spot where a character was before is visible later, the computer can approximately assess what should be “behind” the character. While it sounds more like the Turner-ization of black and white movies (you have to be pretty old to remember that golden period in television), it’s the only way you’re going to be able to see Shaft in 3D.

"The PredAlien is one mean beast." And the nemesis of the Predator.
When I look at the pic above, that was from the movie AvP2. What a disturbing scence.
Btw: Gamestar reports that the demo is out next week. It'll feature multiplayer.
This is an interview with Rebellion's Project Leader for the new Aliens Vs Predator game. It is full of infos. Concerning multiplayer it might interest you that there are a lot of exciting multiplayer modes in development. There will be an Alien Investation mode: Everyone starts as marine, except for one player that starts as Alien. Everyone that he is able to kill will respawn as Alien, which will slowly shift the balance of power between the two groups.
It is a shame that this game is released next month, in the midst of a flood of great games like Bioshock 2, Dante's Inferno and Heavy Rain.

Every year men and women feel the same anxiety over Valentine’s Day. Will he ask me out on my dream date? Will she like the jewelry I picked out for her? Will I be sitting at home alone? But all any of us really want to do is snuggle and say that we actually have someone to hang out with that day. So why not eliminate the anxiety and buy yourself a girlfriend. No, I’m not talking about a prostitute, and I’m not talking about a blow up doll. I’m talking about 100 pounds of silicone lady love. The idea of a robot companion has long been toyed with, but with new advancements in girlfriend technology, companies like True Companion and Real Doll are offering options that look, feel, and even act like the real thing. Real Doll has long made customizable dolls that are physically on point and are now even offering dolls molded and designed to look like real life porn stars Jessica Drake and Alektra Blue. True Companion is taking that idea one step further with their Roxxxy Sex Robot, a similar looking silicone doll with an internal robotic structure that lets you actually interact with the doll and her many customizable personalities. But does the same pressure exist with these dolls? Will she be fun on your date? Will your friends like her? This Valentine’s Day, we’ll put Real Doll and Roxxxy Robot girlfriend head to head to find out which doll will be the best Valentine’s Day date for you.
The Romantic Dinner Date:
Wine, conversation, and a cocktail dress. With a real life date, this situation promises for awkward conversation and a huge bill. Do you think she’ll appreciate your efforts enough to give you a smooch at the end of the date? Nothing is guaranteed but a huge hole in your wallet. On the other hand, if you decide to swap out the breathing date with a silicone babe you know you’ll save on that restaurant bill, so why not splurge for the steak? Hell, you can even go to the burger joint, because we hear that both girls are completely easy going. Douglas Hines, creator of the Roxxxy robot and president of True Companion explains that Roxxxy will be more like a real life date than you can imagine, “Roxxxy is shipped with her own default personality that is matched to your personality. So this default personality likes what you like, dislikes what you dislike, etc. She also has moods during the day just like a real person. She can be sleepy, conversational, or she can be ‘in the mood.’” So if you’re looking for a great conversationalist, Roxxxy’s your girl. If on the other hand you prefer a trophy date that won’t offer riveting conversation but will certainly look hot sitting at the dinner table, then you may want to go with Real Doll. With Real Doll, she can look like your ideal woman or well known porn stars. Who else can say they had a date with an adult superstar this Valentine’s Day?
Romantic Evening at Home with Candles, Chocolate Covered Strawberries, and a Bubble Bath:
So you are one of those guys that likes to have an intimate Valentine’s Day. Some gals dig that, others prefer that you spend your month’s salary on showing her how much you love her with jewelry, flowers, etc. However, both Roxxxy and Real Doll don’t care and would probably prefer a romantic quite evening. If you prefer to be at home on Valentine’s Day, go ahead and up the romance factor for your doll. But when it comes to getting down and dirty, can these dolls handle whipped cream and bubble baths? Real Doll creator Matt McMullen says go ahead and bust out the whipped cream and jump in the bath, “they can get wet although I don’t recommend completely submerging them above the neck because there are some things going on above the neck where water could get down into the body and possibly rust. But it’s perfectly fine below that point.” Hines says that although Roxxxy “loves whipped cream and will spice up your night with some kinky talk!” he recommends that you do not submerge her due to her internal robotic structure, stating that “she prefers sponge baths.” So both dolls love whipped cream, but if the tub is really your thing, we recommend you stick with Real Doll. If you’re more into talking dirty and sponge baths, then Roxxxy will fulfill your every fantasy.
So maybe you’re not ready for the one-on-one date and prefer a group setting. That’s OK! Both Real Doll and Roxxxy are great dates (although it’s doubtful that they will do any bowling), but the question is which one will your friends like more? If you’re more into proving to your friends just how studly you really are and want to bring along the perfect arm candy, then Real Doll may be your match. McMullen says, “We have over 10 different bodies and 16 different faces that are completely interchangeable. People often order extra eyes, different colors, extra wigs, different styles…given that everybody has different tastes [they can] create their doll around those specific tastes.” Roxxxy on the other hand is more of the girl you bring to meet your buddies because you know she will be a good time. Roxxxy’s personalities range from timid to wild, and you can even create your own personality. The best part? You can share these personalities with your friends and they can give your girl a try on their own time. Hines says “Share your girlfriends with your friends by swapping them back and forth online! For example, you lend your custom built girlfriend “Sexy Sally” to one of your friends online – but he can only “use” her until Sunday morning and then she needs to be returned to you! Until Sunday morning.” If your best bud has a Roxxxy of their own, Hines continues on to say that “He can “engage” your girlfriend by using your Sexy Sally personality with his Roxxxy sex robot! You also have the option of sharing your girlfriends with everyone in our forum if you would like. You will also have access to everyone else’s girlfriends, if they allow them to be shared!” Maybe she should be renamed Swinging Sally! See, both are great for bowling and other group activities. In addition, if you want to buy Roxxxy a new outfit for the first time she meets your friends, you can. Her measurements are Bust 38″, Waist 30”, Hips 37″, whereas Real Doll is customizable based on the lady shape you choose from petite to buxom.
Both Roxxxy and Real Doll serve the same function: to be your ideal Valentine’s Day date. Whether you’re looking for a trophy girlfriend, a chatty Cathy,the quiet type, blond, brunette, petite, large, (you get the picture) one of these dolls is perfect. Both dolls are designed to look like real ladies but if you’re looking for more of an interactive experience, then maybe Roxxxy’s the girl for you. The perfect Stepford Wife with Multiple Personality Disorder: you can control her personality, moods, and look. If you don’t feel like talking, maybe you would prefer the Real Doll. Whichever you choose, you can guarantee an anxiety free Valentine’s Day. Ladies, there is already a male version of the Real Doll and the male Roxxxy (appropriately named Rocky) is coming this quarter. And yes, he too has an off switch if you prefer the strong silent type. Real Doll retails for about $5,000 to $7,000 while Roxxxy is around $7,000 to $9,000. Hmmm, maybe a real date is cheaper after all.

Sponsored by the National Ecological Institute of South Korea and designed by Samoo, the Ecorium Project is going to be as much an educational center as it is a preserve. It’ll also be energy-efficient itself, with each greenhouse being capable of detecting external climate conditions and making the appropriate adjustments inside. The exterior will be made of metal panels, low-iron and low-e double glazing, wood and plexiglass.
The name ‘Short Circuit Shelf’ conjured up images of my handful of DVDs and books being held up by a wise-cracking, sentient robot, but this is cool too. Created by Alexandra DiCairano, the Short Circuit Shelf is actually designed to look like a circuit board when mounted on your wall, which, according to Alexandra, “have a beautiful and efficient pattern that perfectly serve their function…” The shelves aren’t available for sale though, which is a shame since they’d probably be more popular in comp sci and electrical engineering students’ dorm rooms than that picture of Einstein sticking his tongue out.
Today, a major hardware company with wide appeal outside the usual hardcore gaming space announced a new device, which is basically exactly like a popular existing device but bigger. Sound familiar? It reminded us of the day in late October when Nintendo announced a new version of the DSi, called the DSi LL (DSi XL outside of Japan). Like the iPad, it's a version of a current device (in this case, the Nintendo DSi) that is distinguished by its size.
So how does Apple's inflated iPod Touch stack up against Nintendo's luxury sedan of a DSi? We've compared the two in several totally crucial vectors, based mostly on the changes from the previous model.
Change in size: Since this is the major component of both devices, it seems right to look at this measurement first. The DSi XL is 160% larger in total volume than its predecessor, with 93% more screen space. The iPad's 9.7 inch, 4:3 screen is 799.8% larger in area than the iPhone or iPod Touch's 3.5 inch, 1.5:1 screen, and its body, at 35.7 cubic inches, is 598.2% the size of an iPhone 3GS.
Colors: The Japanese DSi LL is available in Wine Red, Dark Brown, and Natural White. The iPad is available in black, with a brushed aluminum back.
Compatibility: The iPad is compatible with all iPhone apps that don't use the camera. The DSi XL is compatible with exactly the same programs as the DSi, and all DS games that don't use the Game Boy Advance slot.
New software: iLife productivity apps will be available for the iPad. No software is made especially for DSi XL.
New accessories: The DSi XL comes with a big, pen-sized stylus. The iPad is compatible with a (separate) dock that adds a full keyboard.
Announcement spin: Here's where it gets a bit eerie. Following the announcement of the DSi XL, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata said that the XL offered "an improved view angle on the screens to make it the first portable system that can be enjoyed with people surrounding the gamer," enabling a "new play style where those who are surrounding the game player can also join in one way or the other to the game play." In a promotional video on Apple's site, Bob Mansfield, Senior VIce President of Hardware, says that the IPS display offers "not only a great experience looking directly at the device, but also off-angle when you're sharing the device with someone else."
What do we learn from comparing the iPad to the DSi XL? Not much, really. But it's really weird that the latest hardware iterations from Nintendo and Apple are both oversized versions of things that we already have, isn't it?

It's been a white hot minute since we've seen a snazzy new timepiece from the labs at Timex, but it seems that the outfit will finally be dishing out a new GPS-laden watch a year after introducing the Expedition WS4. Set to debut next month, the Ironman Global Trainer with GPS is easily one of the slimmest, most not-ugly GPS watches we've ever seen. At a glance, you'd never know that such features as real-time speed, pace and distance data were included courtesy of the SiRFstarIII module tucked within, and you'll also get 50 meters of water resistance, a customizable display to showcase four metrics at once and the ability to push performance reports out to your PC. The device will be compatible with Timex heart rate and bike sensors, not to mention any third-party power meters utilizing ANT+ wireless technology. Unfortunately, next month's reveal will only let you know that it'll ship this May to REI stores here in the States, while the rest of the world will have to wait until September to strap one on.
Kingston's upping the ante on its solid state drive series in pretty much all the ways that count. The SSDNow V+ line boasts a 512GB upper limit, twice the previous generation, with iterative options for 256GB, 128GB, and 64GB. Read / write speeds have more than doubled to 230MB/sec and 180MB/sec, respectively. Best of all, these suckers now support TRIM. Prices range from as low as $268 for standalone 64GB an can go as high as $1968 for 512GB, with an extra $15 or so tacked on if you want the bundle instead -- still alluring, still not for the feint of funding, but the good news is, if you don't need Trim or the extra speed, the original SSDNow V series is available for much smaller dents on your wallet.
Acer's revealing an attractive tablet, but we smell a sitting duck. Competing against the Cupertino juggernaunt is going to be a tall order. But among all the me-too tablet makers, at least Acer has the right idea: Its tablet will be accompanied by an app store, set to arrive about six months from now.
After all, applications will be what defines the utility of such a tablet, and Acer plans to run those apps not only on the screen you see atop the lap of the lovely lady pictured above, but on an Acer 6-inch e-ink reader as well. This is going to be a lively competition.

Japan's been enjoying the new-and-improved Wii Classic Controller Pro for some time now, but us Yanks are finally getting our chance to grab one come April. This upgraded version of the standard Classic Controller plus into a Wiimote, just like the old version, but it also features two extra shoulder buttons and a new set of grips for more comfortable marathon gaming.
It'll set you back $20, or you can get it bundled with Monster Hunter Tri.
Is there life after death?
Is there life after death? Theologians can debate all they want, but radiation oncologist Dr. Jeffrey Long says if you look at the scientific evidence, the answer is unequivocally yes. Drawing on a decade’s worth of research on near-death experiences — work that includes cataloguing the stories of some 1,600 people who have gone through them — he makes the case for that controversial conclusion in a new book, Evidence of the Afterlife. Medicine, Long says, cannot account for the consistencies in the accounts reported by people all over the world. He talked to TIME about the nature of near-death experience, the intersection between religion and science and the Oprah effect.
Medically speaking, what is a near-death experience?
A near-death experience has two components. The person has to be near death, which means physically compromised so severely that permanent death would occur if they did not improve: they’re unconscious, or often clinically dead, with an absence of heartbeat and breathing. The second component [is that] at the time they’re having a close brush with death, they have an experience. [It is] generally lucid [and] highly organized.
How do you respond to skeptics who say there must be some biological or physiological basis for that kind of experience, which you say in the book is medically inexplicable?
There have been over 20 alternative, skeptical “explanations” for near-death experience. The reason is very clear: no one or several skeptical explanations make sense, even to the skeptics themselves. Or [else ]there wouldn’t be so many.
You say there’s less skepticism about near-death experiences than there used to be, as well as more awareness. Why is that?
Literally hundreds of scholarly articles have been written over the last 35 years about near-death experience. In addition to that, the media continues to present [evidence of] near-death experience. Hundreds of thousands of pages a month are read on our website, NDERF.org.
In the book you say that some critics argue that there’s an “Oprah effect”: that a lot of people who have had near-death experiences have heard about them elsewhere first. How do you account for that in your research?
We post to the website the near-death experience exactly as it was shared with us. Given the fact that every month 300,000 pages are read [by] over 40,000 unique visitors from all around the world, the chances of a copycat account from any media source not being picked up by any one of those people is exceedingly remote. Our quality-assurance check is the enormous visibility and the enormous number of visitors.
You say this research has affected you a lot on a personal level. How?
I’m a physician who fights cancer. In spite of our best efforts, not everybody is going to be cured. My absolute understanding that there is an afterlife for all of us — and a wonderful afterlife — helps me face cancer, this terribly frightening and threatening disease, with more courage than I’ve ever faced it with before. I can be a better physician for my patients.
You say we can draw on near-death experiences to reach conclusions about life after actual death. But is that comparing apples and oranges?
Scientifically speaking, interviewing people that have permanently died is challenging. Obviously, given that impossibility, we have to do the next best thing. If these people have no brain function, like you have in a cardiac arrest, I think that is the best, closest model we’re going to have to study whether or not conscious experience can occur apart from the physical brain. Theresearch shows the overwhelming answer is absolutely yes.
You raise the idea that your work could have profound implications for religion. But is whether there is life after death really a scientific question, or a theological one?
I think we have an interesting blend. [This research] directly addresses what religions have been telling us for millenniums to accept on faith: that there is an afterlife, that there is some order and purpose to this universe, that there’s some reason and purpose for us being here in earthly life. We’re finding verification, if you will, for what so many religions have been saying. It’s an important step toward bringing science andreligion together.
Is there any aspect of human experience that you don’t think science can touch?
Oh, absolutely. What happens after permanent death — after we’re no longer able to interview people — is an absolute. To that extent, the work I do may always require some element of faith. But by the time you look at [the] evidence, the amount of faith you need to have [to believe in]life after death is substantially reduced.
The United Nations’ climate science panel is facing further embarrassment after claims it incorrectly linked global warming to a rise in natural disasters. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change claimed in 2007 that the world had “suffered rapidly rising costs due to extreme weather related events since the 1970s”, suggesting that part of the increase was down to global warming.
But the scientific paper on which the IPCC based its claim was allegedly not peer reviewed or published by the time the report was issued. When it was eventually published in 2008, it came with the caveat: “We find insufficient evidence to claim a statistical relationship between global temperature increase and catastrophe losses”.
Despite the concession, the IPCC failed to clarify the statement ahead of last month’s Copenhagen summit. The claim formed a central argument at the climate change conference, where African nations demanded £62 billion in compensation from rich nations responsible for the highest amount of carbon emissions.
Jean-Pascal van Ypersele, vice-chair of the IPCC has now conceded that the evidence will be reviewed.
“We are reassessing the evidence and will publish a report on natural disasters and extreme weather with the latest findings,” he said.
Roger Pielke, professor of environmental studies at Colorado University, who commissioned Dr Muir-Wood’s paper, told The Sunday Times: “All the literature published before and since the IPCC report shows that rising disaster losses can be explained entirely by social change. People have looked hard for evidence that global warming plays a part but can’t find it,” he said.
“The idea that catastrophes are rising in cost because of climate change is completely misleading.”
Last week the IPCC was forced to admit it made a mistake by claiming the Himalayan glaciers could melt by 2035. It made the assertion two years ago, saying it was based on detailed research into global warming, but has now conceded it was an error and the claim would be reviewed.Via Telegraph

Everything that was there on that desktop, including Minesweeper. Of course, it’s also a whole lot more stable then the original, Thankfully, you can’t run the old version of I.E. on the site, but you can shut down windows.
Medical experts in the U.K. are now pushing to add vitamin D to food products, such as milk. In generations past, children were often fed regular doses of cod liver oil (rich in vitamin D) to prevent the disease, but chances of convincing the MySpace generation to choke down a spoonful of that swill every day is next to nil.
Some countries, including the U.S., already add vitamin D supplements to some food products, but the real solution to the problem is simple: put down the Xbox controller and get some fresh air. [From: Telegraph]
A mushroom is the fleshy, spore-bearing fruiting body of a fungus, typically produced above ground on soil or on its food source. The word “mushroom” can also be used for a wide variety of gilled fungi, with or without stems, and the term is used even more generally, to describe both the fleshy fruiting bodies of some Ascomycota and the woody or leathery fruiting bodies of some Basidiomycota, depending upon the context of the word.
It’s almost a shame to eat something as beautiful as the mushrooms on the most beautiful list… of course, most of them are probably poisonous, so you probably wouldn’t want to anyway…
