Yorozu Audio universal speaker kit

Yorozu Audio universal speaker kitThe Yorozu Audio universal speaker kit asks, “Got milk?” And if you do, you too can have this speaker. In fact, you can turn just about anything lying around into a speaker. This device relies on a vibrating sonic transducer that takes audio from your portable media player or sound system, then sends it to an attached inanimate object.

It’s all about resonance, but don’t expect great audio. It will cost you $56.30 to impress all your milk drinking friends, but if you ask me it just looks like a fancy heart monitor for dairy products.

DimP: Browse videos by dragging objects on-screen

DimP: Browse videos by dragging objects on-screen
Here’s something that should revolutionize the way we edit/browse videos in the future. It’s courtesy of Pierre Dragicevic and Gonzalo Ramos, the pair who created it. Now you can browse video clips by interacting with moving objects on the screen instead of having to use a slider. DimP stands for Direct Manipulation Video Player and it’s pretty awesome.

Best of all, you won’t have to modify or convert your video in any way to use the technology. The player knows the movements in videos and shows you the motion of an object. This allows you to drag objects so that you advance or rewind the clip. It’s pretty cool to watch in action and should make life easier for video editors and the rest of us who just like to play with cool stuff. Check out some videos below.

Smart Goggles identify, find lost items

Smart Goggles
We’ve all been there. You misplace an item, but you know damn well you left it on a shelf. You can see it in your mind’s eye. It’s frustrating, but a new device from Japanese scientists looks like it can help.

The Smart Goggles use sophisticated object recognition software. With a mounted webcam, the Goggles will recognize specific objects and save a few seconds of footage. So, when you lose your car keys, the goggles will just bring up a video of the last time the object was seen. Sure, you wouldn’t want to wear it all the time. It’s not practical. However, for those suffering from memory loss or Alzheimers, this could be very helpful.
