Infrared paintings visible only with a digital camera

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on March 4th, 2011

Two Toronto-based artists have come up with a new art form. It’s a new way to view art on canvas. Their new series is called Take a Picture, and while they might look like blank canvases, when you pull out your camera and look through its screen, you’ll see the actual art.

Behind the canvases there are wires and circuits that emit infrared light. This light is just outside the range of what the human eye can see. Digital cameras can see them just fine though. I don’t know if it’s art, but it is pretty cool.

Posted in Samsung by Conner Flynn on July 2nd, 2009

Samsung SCH-W760 releasedWe first told you about this one back in May. Samsung has finally rolled out the odd SCH-W760 cellphone in South Korea. It’s the first handset in the world to come with an infrared camera. Very handy if you want to do video calls in low-light situations like a strip-club, or while hunting for Bigfoot in the wild.

It also has a 3-megapixel camera and 2.8″ AMOLED display with 240 x 400 resolution. Some other features of the SCH-W760 include 8GB of internal memory, a microSD memory card slot, S-DMB TV support and high speed 3G connectivity.

Infrared flashlight records videoIf you are adventuring in the night and want to catch all your findings on video, this is the flashlight for you. You only have two hands. Why hold a video camera in one hand and a flashlight in the other? You’re sure to drop one when you see Bigfoot or the Chupracabra anyway, and there goes your proof.

The Infrared Video Recording Flashlight comes with 17 infrared LEDs to illuminate what’s ahead of you. The built-in camera will capture everything in 640 x 480 resolution at 30 fps, with 128MB of internal memory and a microSD memory card slot.

LightSpeed Binoculars transmit secure video and audio through Infrared

Posted in Outdoors by Conner Flynn on December 16th, 2008

LightSpeed Binoculars transmit secure video and audio through InfraredThese LightSpeed binoculars were designed mainly for military use and they’re capable of transmitting “untappable” voice and video signals to another set of binoculars using infrared. The LightSpeed system exploits free-space optics, which is the ability to pass data between two points using an optical beam. The method usually involves lasers, but this system uses eye-safe infrared LEDs, similar to those found in TV remotes.

According to Leo Volfson, president of Torrey Pines Logic, which created LightSpeed: “The binocular has an attachment that fits over the ocular side,” Volfson says. “It produces a beam that comes out of the right eye of the binocular. On the left side is a receiver. If you look at me and I look at you, we’ll be able to talk or send information.”

Night Vision Goggles get affordable, pervs rejoiceNight vision used to be something that we all wished we could use. But in order to use it, one had to afford it, which was impossible in days gone by. But nowadays anybody can get in on the fun, whether you are out in the woods hunting or engaging in extremely pervy activities.

With this pair of EyeClops Night Vision Goggles you see up to 50 feet in pitch black darkness, and it has a flip up eye piece in case the lights get turned on. You’re going to want to have a bunch of spare AA batteries on you though as it takes up to 5 of them. A very affordable $90. By the way, it’s not cool or normal to stare at sleeping people in the dark. Just so you know. Stop being a perv and use this gear to catch bigfoot or something.

EyeClops gives your kid night vision

EyeClops gives your kid night vision
Kids today have much cooler toys then we had when I was growing up. Take the EyeClops for example. It basically gives your kid some for real high-tech spy cred. Even kids can be James Bond these days, with some amazing gear.

This isn’t just your typical crappy flashlight attached to a helmet, not at all. It uses an infrared imager and LCD monocle which will let you spy on others in even the darkest of settings. You can even get an EyeClops BioniCam if you want to take pictures, which is the same thing, but with a digital camera. Both retail for $80 when they hit stores this fall. Just make sure your kid doesn’t catch you doing anything you don’t want seen. Blackmail sucks.

The Darwin controller is some Wii competition

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on February 4th, 2008

The Darwin controller is some Wii competitionWant to get in on some of that Wii action, with a controller just as intuitive, but still can’t find a Wii? Maybe it’s just time for motion-controlled games on a different platform. Darwin’s new Motus controller will work with other systems. Not the Wii. Mainly the PS3 and your computer. The Darwin contains gyroscopes and accelerometers to sense its location and it’s said to be more accurate in tracking motion than is Wii’s infrared.

It’s fairly neat looking and it’s meant to be held like a Samurai sword, which should make for excellent slicing and dicing action. Not to mention golf. The Darwin should be available by the 2008 holiday season. The price will be between $79 and $99. No word yet on what games it will work with, new or old.


Virtual Keyboard the Size of a Lighter

Posted in Keyboards by Darrin Olson on September 15th, 2006

Virtual KeyboardHow could something the size of a lighter work as a keyboard? When the gadget has an infrared light and a laser built in of course. The Virtual Keyboard uses infrared and laser technology to produce the keyboard and view what’s being clicked on by your fingers to make a circuit and work like a regular keyboard.

The infrared, full qwerty keyboard can be projected onto any surface and can work with desktop PC’s, notebooks, PDA’s or smartphones. It even goes so far as to produce the clicking sound when you hit the key to make it seem less virtual and to let you know that you are indeed hitting the keys.

The infrared virtual keyboard comes with either a Bluetooth version or USB, and has a number of accessories including an extra battery, charger, international adapter and serial to USB converter.

Compact Impact, the makers …
