Take your average touch screen, multiply it, then combine both screens into one phone. The designers didn’t bother with the engineering part, however, so their concept has to be taken on blind faith that it’s awesome. According to the available concept illustrations, each touchscreen are independent wireless devices that can be separated or opened like a book. Wenhing Chou and Kok Keong Wong might be onto something.

Blessed with so-called twin-splitting transparent displays, the Space 3 phone (or Spaceeee–get it?) has no specifications or features worth mentioning. It’s a concept, remember?

This is the reason why design remains an appealing career. Designers aren’t often put to task for their creation’s lack of engineering. The results are sometimes startling, sometimes ludicrous to a hilarious degree. (No names though.)

To bother trying to make the Space 3 phon ... Read more »

Apparently there’s this condition called Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity (or EHS) that’s ruining a lot of lives. How? It makes its victims so paranoid around cellular devices and WiFi networks—believing proximity to such tech irradiates them—that they decide to opt out of society. Thus, WiFi refugees have come into existence. The almost too-unbelievable  part is groups of them have been flocking to a far away town for their protection.


The place is Green Bank, West Virginia where oddly enough humongous radio telescopes ar ein operation. It has become a haven for EHS sufferers and other WiFi refugees because it’s a certified radio free zone. It’s also rustic, isolated, and quite lovely.

The BBC have a great piece on some of the inhabitants who claim they have suffered from EHS and cellular devices. The victims claim headaches and mental t ... Read more »

It’s only in the prototype stage, but the research group behind it are perfecting how to deliver sensation to video game players. They’ve started with the hands first and use vibrating devices to create the effect. Weird? Definitely.

The picture above? In case you didn’t recognize it that’s a scene from Mass Effect 2 where Shepard and this other guy are frying robots. It’s quite appropriate since the actual photogrpahs of this experimental sensation tech are quite boring. Watch the video below to see what we mean.

And the video:

Just a quick summary: In the video, the lady is explaining the research in brief. As shown, the actual contraption that gives the vibrating signals is rather clunky. But it’s feasible. As to whether it will ever hit the mainstream and shake up the gaming industry, who knows?

For starters, it’s a strange place for kids to be enjoying their solitude. But as a work of sculpture what Dietrech Wegner has created is a marvel to behold. A study in balancing lightweight materials with aesthetic sensibilities, the mushroom cloud tree house is an eccentric take on a boyhood institution, not to mention a towering display of nuclear might.


Further investigation has revealed that the artist’s message was to pose a contradiction. We’re not going to delve into the philosophical underpinnings here or whatever. Bottom line is it’s a nice sculpture though we’d love to see a lengthier ladder up to its entrance. The sculptor, of whom little is known, has inadvertently stoked our enthusiasm for post-nuclear imaginings along the lines of Fallout ... Read more »

We have already seen some Windows 8 running on the new Samsung Windows 8 Developer tablet, as well as running on an NVIDIA Kal-El tablet, and have even seen it running on an old Asus Eee PC netbook.

Now the guys over at Geek decided to load the Windows 8 Developer preview on to an EXOPC Slate, which you can see in the video below.

As you can see from the video Windows 8 seems to run quite a bit slower on the EXOPC Slate, not bad though considering the EXOPC slates specifications and the majority of the functions seem to work on the slate.
