From the look, it's quite same as the prediction and either the specs. However, nothing special with this gadget, it's just like a standard where we guessed it would be a great deal to have a tablet from Apple.

iPad itself comes into two variants of connectivity (Wi-fi and Wi-Fi+3G)where the 3G edition will be launched in April 2010 in the US and the deal with the operators for monthly subscription will be done in June 2010 in other countries. Let's see for Asia'a countries. The Apple iPad has three capacities started from 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB.

According to, the Apple iPad specs are:

  • 0.5 inches thin

  • 1 GHz Apple A4 chip
  • Accelerometer, compass

iMicroscope – an iPhone App to see microscopic images

6 komentar
iPhone is a cool and multi-function phone as we knew, all because of the apps that make this phone better than others. One of awesome app is iMicroscope to see the microscopic images, even though we know that the iPhone camera is not better than others.

Disappointedly, it needs the microscope to make it works. iMicroscope is claimed to be compatible with any type of microscope. The main function is to capture any microscopic images and zoom it into a readable image by aligning the camera to the microscope lens. It’s fun app I think and to get it, you can buy for only $2.99 at the App store.

Nikko has just unveiled their new game console which can be controlled by voice. Niko mini voice controlled helicopter recognizes some commands including “start engine”, “higher”, “lower”, “hold” and “stop”. By controlling with voice you will not be tired in your fingers to push the stick buttons.

Besides voice controller, Nikko RC helicopter also allows you to control via conventional dual-stick and the controller is a craft charger itself. This mini chopper is powered by a sensor to avoid the helicopter to hit the ceiling; you need just to say “don’t hit the ceiling”. Meanwhile, it might be only controlled with English, so non-English country kids have to learn English first to play this awesome game gadget. Unfortunately, there is no detail confirmation yet from the manufacturer about when it will be launched including the price.

Talking Dinner Plate to Slow Down your Eating

2 komentar
Are you among those who worry about weight? Well, do not to be worry too much, perhaps this information you need to refer to. A group of Swedish scientists have developed a gadget to monitor the speed of your eating, and chides you if too fast.
According to the My Digital Life, a "Mandometer" is an electronic scale that you place under your plate. Foods scale weight, and, as you eat, to monitor the level of consumption. Then stack the data against the "ideal graphics for food consumption," which has apparently been determined by the therapist of food. If you stray too far from the graph, the computer will ask you to slow down that fork. The idea is that this system will train fat people eat more slowly, thus leading to less food is eaten and dropped more pounds.

In a study published by the British Medical Journal, the participants are using the Mandometer, contrary to traditional treatment; they decreased Body Mass Index (BMI) with an average of 2.1 percent - three times more than traditional groups. Anyway, women in this digital age may put Mandometer as must-have items on the shopping list.
