Yes that model building above is a PC, and yes the Overclockers Australia database is probably the most definitive and complete listing (with pics) of PC mods anywhere. Fab stuff.
Oh very cool. I always wanted to do this, arrange a snapshot Web cam tour of the world on my desktop, but didn’t have the energy or patience to set it up. Uber geek Gong Szeto however has, and it looks great. Need a fat pipe to feed it all though I suspect. [via madville] And he offers some simple instructions on how to create your own – hint: you need to enable Web desktop.
I wonder whether this new Dolby headphone technology works as well as advertised? Should be good if it does.
Apparently, according to this report, we’re very close to seeing real live and inexpensive fuel cells on the market. Whoopee!
Excellent. The Magnificent Obsessions weblog. ‘The Passion, the Heroism and the Glory of people with too much time on their hands. Wonderful.
Hilariously festive Santa Web cam from the depths of Lapland (he’s certainly speaking Finnish, cos I recognise it). Features the old fellow meeting and greeting the fans, and judging by his multi-lingual expertise the visitors are from all over the world. Fun. [via madville]
I like the concept behind the Easy Burning utility. It installs a Windows XP type right mouse click function into Windows 98, which lets you quickly and easily back up files to CD-R drives by selecting them and then doing a Send To…
Connectivityman is a new online service which aims to help you get the most out of your mobile phone. I have the feeling that more and more people are going to want to use services like this once the more complex smartphones start to arrive on the market.
Hawkin’s Bazaar is a collection of cute, quaint, kitsch knick knacks which include wooden, tin and clockwork toys and gizmos. Not exactly high tech, but great for cheap and cheerful kid’s presents which aren’t mass market mega-brands. Just like the £7.99 clockwork singing bird cage above. Warning: bit of a slow site.
The Matsushita Feel Beat chair. Just hook it up to your TV, computer or video console and ‘feel the vibrations’ from the sound output. Sounds…er…interesting. Mind you if you turn it up too much you may just feel the wrath of the neighbours, but that’s just me being picky. Japanese site here.
Wow, the Sony DVP-CX875P is a 301 DVD disk changer. That’s right, if you’ve got 301 DVD or CD disks you need changing (not 302 mind you) then you’ll love this little puppy. The $500.00 unit can also play back CD-R/RW disks as well as MP3, which makes it a really cool addition to any home theatre system. [via madville] The new NEC whisper quiet HT1000 projector looks like it would complement the above perfectly for real home theatre gorgeousness!
My-Symbian.com takes a pictorial look at the upcoming Sony Ericsson P800 smartphone. Which funnily enough, looks as though it won’t be shipping in time for Xmas.
Heh heh, The Book of Seg is a real life journal from a Segway owner. Detailing delivery, the big ‘why buy’ question and other interesting stuff. [via gizmodo]
The $39.99 Nyko Worm Cam turns your ‘umble little GameBoy Advance into a digital camera. Holds twenty pictures, but I suspect that the usual caveats apply re image quality. Fun though!
