Solor Powered Electric Razor

Posted in Home,Solar Powered by Quagmire on July 25th, 2007

Solar powered electric razorThe electric razor from Sabeco uses non other than rays from the sun to charge up its batteries, saving on the environment and making things more convenient for you. An electric razor in your glove box works great for anyone that grows facial hair fast enough to need a touch up after 5 o’clock, or for those days that you go to work wearing the same clothes you had on the day before.

The only problem is you have to remember to charge it once in a while and of course it will run out of juice at the time when you need it most. With this solar powered razor you can simply set it in on your dashboard or out in the sun when your camping and to keep it charged and ready to go, never needing to bring it inside for charging.

USB Memory on a Stick

Posted in Storage,USB by Quagmire on December 30th, 2006

Memory StickNow this is a memory stick. This memory stick is made for anyone looking to commune with nature, play fetch with their dog, or just bring a little taste of the outdoors into their cubicle.

The memory sticks are a creation from the Oooms Design Studio based in The Netherlands. The sticks were “made to stand out against its natural environment of computers and offices.”

The sticks are handpicked from the woods based on their beauty and uniqueness. Then they are handmade into a USB 2.0 memory stick. The sticks are available in 256MB, 512MB, and 1GB sizes.

This certainly brings new meaning to the term “memory stick”. This is a nice break from the utilitarian design of most personal storage devices. Be warned, you might get a few double-takes around the office wearing one of these on a lanyard around your neck….

Samsung OneDRAM Simplifies Memory for Mobiles

Posted in Memory,News,Samsung by Quagmire on December 13th, 2006

Samsung OneDRAMSamsung today announced a new prototype fusion memory chip named OneDRAM that can significantly increase the data processing speed between processors in mobile applications.

The use of two separate processors – a communication processor and a media processor in mobile devices is becoming increasingly prevalent due to rapidly increasing demand for multimedia features. Two processors typically means that two memory buffers are required and sharply increases the time that it takes to transfer data between processors.

The new OneDRAM solution can eliminate the need for two memory buffers in high-end smartphones and other multimedia devices as it can route data between the processors with a single chip.

The new memory solution is expected to be incorporated into the design of handsets, game consoles and in other digital applications, especially those that require 3-dimensional graphics.

Along with the faster data processing speeds between the processors, the OneDRAM reduces power …
