Here’s the latest in hi-tech gadgets and general technology that sparked our interest here at Zath, but we didn’t get chance to cover ourselves – thankfully these sites did do and you should definitely check them out as we liked reading these articles!
Night Vision Goggles – Who hasn’t played a stealth computer game or watched them used on TV and movies and not wanted to have some yourself to scout out your surroundings in the dark?
Laser Airzooka – When the Airzooka was first released, it allowed you to shoot people with air! Now you can improve your accuracy given the nearly added laser sight!
Robbery suspects found with Find My iPhone – I’m sure some of us were a little dubious about the whole “Find my iPhone” that Apple announced at the iPhone 3.0 press conference, but it would appear that it does work in reality!
Sony PRS600 eBook Reader – Sony have released another e-book reader, clearly trying to compete with the Amazon Kindle, but will it be as successful?
iPhone App: New Facebook 3.0 app is now available – I’ve been waiting for Facebook to update their app ever since I got my iPhone 6 months ago and now it’s here and it’s got plenty of features that make it worth waiting for!
Coolest Gadgets of the Week (21/08/09) – Another selection of the latest gadgets all vying to be voted the “coolest of the week” – check them out, some great new gadgets on show!
NES Cartridge Hard Drives – How many of you have external hard drives these days? A lot of us do, but most of them are just plain and boring to look at – how about having one that looks like an NES cartridge? Now that would be different!
Forest of CO2 Capturing Artificial Trees May Come Up Soon – I remember first seeing these on a TV show showing off possible technologies to combat climate change, interesting to see that these artificial trees are now being mentioned again.
Facebook not on same Page as their users – just when you thought Facebook were going to give you the social tools you wanted, it turns out they didn’t bother!
Logitech Harmony 1100 Universal Remote Control – I’ve had a couple of universal remote controls over the years, but they never quite seemed to live up to dream of properly replacing your collection of remotes – however this one looks like it might just be up to the job – I think I might need one of these!
Prince of Persia Trilogy: Purity, Transgressions and Dichotomy – An interesting analysis of the original trilogy re-make of the Prince of Persia franchise, I did like the Sands of Time myself, although I never played the rest of the series mainly for some of the reasons covered in this article. And yet it this trilogy still looks better than the latest re-make version.
