Oregon Scientific TimeLight Projection Clock with Color LCD

Oregon Scientific’s TimeLight adds a twist of color to weather forecasting. On a sunnd day the corresponding icon glows in bright red. On a rainy day, the icon is a gloomy purple. The wireless sensor gives you both the inside and outside temperatures once you place it outdoors. The crescendo alarm wakes you up gradually, and it projects its data onto your ceiling, automatically illuminating when the lights go out. Roll over for the key features.

Wireless Rock Speaker System

This one is for those who take things a little too literally. The speaker is shaped like a rock and doesn’t have cables to give away your secret. The speaker system wirelessly recieves audio feeds from a transmitter. Now that’s rocking, isn’t it? The transmitter transmits data at 900 MHz frequency. The speaker can recieve audio streams when placed at a maximum distance of up to 150′ away from the transmitting device. This can be well camouflaged with real rocks. So if you are planning an outdoor party in a rock garden, you know how to please your guests. It is made to be tough and is weather-proof. So that you don’t need to bury it under plastics during a rain party, It comes with 2 channel selection and also has a 5.25 PP cone, a Woofer2 Mylar cone and a Tweeter20 Watt RMS Output15V DC Transformer. The sound is clear, thanks to the Phase Loop Lock circuitry.

$128 isn’t too much to pay for something so cool and strong. Don’t agree? It’s wireless, remember?

Sony shrinks its Bravia TVs [XDV-D500 and XDV-G200]

If you can’t afford a super-sized Sony Bravia HD telly for your living room, then how about a pocket-sized model? The Japanese manufacturer has unveiled two portable TVs featuring dinky versions of its Bravia displays.


Sony’s XDV-D500: a 3in display and internal storage

The 3in, 432 x 240 resolution XDV-D500 LCD pocket TV is compatible with 1seg broadcasts, Japan’s terrestrially broacast mobile digital audio, video and data broadcasting service. Its screen has a 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio and a 500:1 contrast ratio, which doesn’t sound like much compared to existing Bravia TV’s, but remember that the XDV-D500’s screen is only 3in across.


The G200-XDV has a 2in display

An Electronic Program Guide helps users choose which shows to record out of the ten hours of TV the gadget’s 2GB internal memory can hold. It also receives both FM and AM radio broadcasts.

Sony’s also created the G200-XDV that sports a smaller, 2in LCD display and is designed to be held vertically. It too receives 1seg, FM and AM broadcasts, with the added benefit of noise-reduction technology.

Unfortunately, all this talk of 1seg reception does mean that both miniature TVs are, so far, only set to be released in Japan this April. The XCV-D500 will cost around ¥38,000 (£180/€245/$355) and the XDV-G200 around ¥30,000 (£145/€190/$280).
