The miniature amp that's included clips to your belt lets you adjust the sound, just like you would for a normal guitar.

Apple announces world's first Multi-Touch mouse

Posted by Simpur | Posted in , , , | Posted on Wednesday, October 21, 2009


Following the somewhat recent touch innovations on their iPhone, iPod Touch and notebooks, Apple introduced its Multi-Touch technology to their new 'Magic Mouse'.

Bringing gestures to mice for the first time, the Magic Mouse brings a whole new feel to the way you get around on your Mac.

Scroll in any direction with one finger, swipe through web pages and photos with two, and click and double-click anywhere.

The wireless Magic Mouse uses powerful laser tracking that's far more sensitive and responsive on more surfaces than the usual optical tracking used on current mice.

Technologies aside, this mouse is visually pleasing too, featuring a low-profile design and a sexy, seamless top shell.

The Magic Mouse comes free with the new iMacs, and also available separately for B$108, all of which should be available in Brunei by the end of this month.

The Cupola, available in black or white, is made of lightweight aluminum, and is available for US$2,735.

The ingenious, blade-less, Dyson Air Multiplier

Posted by Simpur | Posted in , , | Posted on Sunday, October 18, 2009


The maestros at Dyson, more famous for their ultra-cool vacuum cleaners, have created the US $300 Dyson Air Multiplier, an ingenious blade-less table fan that works very differently from your average conventional fan.

Using its very own Air Multiplier Technology, it draws air in and amplifies it 15 times, producing an uninterrupted stream of smooth air, which makes a huge difference when compared to typical 'choppy' airflow produced by the blades of normal fans.

This device sucks air into its base and accelerates it through a small aperture in its ring, and then over a ramp to channel its direction.

With no blades or grill, the Air Multiplier is super-safe, and is even easy to clean.

Touch-activated faucets make it easy for you to wash your dirty hands

Posted by Simpur | Posted in , , | Posted on Thursday, October 15, 2009


When you've got your hands dirty, it can always be quite hard to turn the knob off your tap, without fumbling, or getting it dirty too. Delta's new "Pilar" faucets feature their Touch20 touch-sensitive technology that lets you simply tap or touch them to turn the water on or off.

The faucets use two touch sensors which are located in the handle and the spouts to detect when you've touched them, but surprisingly are smart enough to know when it's been grabbed instead - so as to not turn water on and off when you try and adjust its positions.

The Pilar faucet is available at prices that start from US$547.
