Viewty

September 21st, 2007 by LG Blog UK
 
LG will soon be releasing their latest model, the Viewty. Combining state of the art design with state of the art technology the Viewty has everything. The design itself is stunning, keeping up with the LG tradition in this department. The whole phone is encased in aluminum with the back looking like a perfectly proportioned, slick digital camera and front a super stylish PDA. I'm a huge fan of way this phone looks. So what impressed me initially? The high speed video capture technology is stand out. At present the only phone with this technology, it means you can capture anything...

So, the projector looks like it might be at home next to...

It certainly has got craft going for it - the body is made out of just a single piece of aluminium with some laser cleverness, which is admirable. It also does currency conversions (although it doesn't say how it updates the exchange rates - presumably you have to tell it what they are) To answer the questions, yes it is purdy, but...

Infinite jest: a fun kind of USB drive

September 21st, 2007 by LG Blog UK
 
Sometimes, it's good to be whimsical with new technology. Sure - anything that can make the world a better place is welcome, but that doesn't mean we can't have our toys at the same time. So I'd like to show my appreciation of Vicky Wei's Memory Infinite concept (via) - where you can daisy-chain USB thumb drives together to form ever-expanding drives (like on the right). It's only a concept - and it's probably not feasible to have thumb drives with capacities over 32GB (at least, none I've seen) but I applaud both the designer's idea (a modern take on those...
