Posted in Acer by Conner Flynn on October 14th, 2009

Acer announces Liquid Android phoneAcer looks like they mean business in the cell phone market, having officially announced the Acer Liquid, Acer’s first Android-powered smartphone. This is truly something to drool over, as it will be powered by Qualcomm’s 1GHz Snapdragon processor. It will be the first Android-device to use the processor. Liquid=drool.

This one features a high-definition WVGA capacitive touchscreen, and will be powered by Android 1.6. We don’t have an official release date or pricing info yet, but that info should drop soon. We’ll let you know.

Liquid digital media guide by RoviRovi better known as Macrovision just announced Liquid, a media guide that connects users to “content”. With Liquid, “content” encompasses anything: photos, music, Cable TV programs, free web videos or even online video services like Blockbuster OnDemand. Liquid can also interface with home networked devices using standard protocols like uPNP and DLNA.

Rovi already owns huge databases of content-related information that should give Liquid a nice advantage over competitors. At the moment, Liquid will go into consumer devices like televisions, but not in cable/satellite boxes.

Hydrokinetic wrench uses the power of liquid

Hydrokinetic wrench uses the power of liquidThe Hydrokinetic Adjustable wrench lets you work with twenty three different sizes of bolts and nuts. The secret to it’s success with so many sizes lies in the wrench’s liquid core. To adjust the wrench, just open the valve, fit it around the nut or bolt and push the gripper on the opposite end.

This will compress the liquid which will push the gripper on the end. Once it is snug against the nut, close the valve and your wrench is locked in position. The head will let you get into even the tightest spaces and the design of the grip will help you turn damaged nuts and bolts.

Beer-filled USB flash drive to break in case of emergency

Beer-filled USB flash drive to break in case of emergencyYou know, I don’t know what this says about us as a society, but for some reason this gadget truly exists. What we have here is an authentic beer-filled USB flash drive that even features 3D “optional customizable floating objects” inside. With this liquid storage device you can celebrate your love of beer by always having some with you.

And if things ever get too dry and you find yourself in need of a hit, I’m sure you could break it and get just enough booze to wet your beak. Though I wouldn’t recommend it, you don’t wanna choke on those “optional customizable floating objects”. Storage size ranges from 128 MB to 8GB. You might also want to be careful that you don’t crack it and feed your laptop beer.

The Water Clock drinks on the job

The Water clock drinks on the job
Forget batteries or an outlet. How about a clock that is powered by any liquid? Well, almost any. You wouldn’t want it to run on urine, though I bet it would work. Once you fill it up, the LCD display will provide the time and date while it draws power from the electrons in the water.

It’s cheap at $13 and if you already have plants to water, you won’t forget to water your clock. Of course, if you have been known to kill plants, you will probably be clueless as to what time it is. Just make it easy on yourself by giving the clock a drink everytime you have one and you should be alright. I can’t figure out what the mirror finish is all about.

NEC’s Liquid Flask Phone shows you “the juice”

NEC’s Liquid Flask Phone shows you “the juice”
This is the most convenient way to see how much “juice” remains in a device. Juice being battery life and in this case battery life being displayed with liquid. We don’t have many details, but this flask phone from NEC looks like it is liquid-powered and touch-screened. This one is so far out there that it must be a prototype.

According to NEC, it’s going to be released sometime in 2008, if you can believe that. It doesn’t get much cooler then being able to watch the liquid inside drain as you’re using the phone, so you can see how much power you have left. (Okay, that’s a lame hobby. But the concept is awesome.) Hopefully it will be available here in the U.S. The colors are obviously very woman friendly.
