iPhone camera lens is very cool and Vizart’s stuff has always been a favorite of mine..

Samsung Blogger Project

Samsung asked Heather Armstrong of to stop typing for a day and update her blog with handmade posts. I think it’s interesting that pen interaction is a point of differentiation between other well known tablet devices. I’m not sure who’s pen technology they use and if it’s pressure sensitive but I will find out and let you know.

The new display innovative Express View provides a reminder of your ExpressKeys settings on the screen so you can stay focused on your screen and your work.

Wacom Cintiq 24 HD

The Cintiq 24HD is the flagship product of Wacom’s Cintiq range and has been designed for professional use, setting new standards for everybody working in 3D design, animation, game development, industrial design and visual effects. I finally got to see one in the flesh today at the NAB show in Las Vegas. Nice!

Google – Project Glass

A team in the Google [x] group has started Project Glass to build this kind of technology which is along the lines of my PhD research into NUI. I think the key here is interface has to be simple and out of your way and the physical glasses have to look cool or just look normal.

Once those two elements come together it will be the perfect storm for this ..I can see it now with people walking around talking to themselves .. actually nothing really new about that.
