The Mini Mobile Robotic Printer

The Mini Mobile Robotic Printer

even with today’s technological advancements, one gadget that remain largely immobile is printer. while there are mobile printers in the market, they are merely shrunken examples of their desktop counterpart which are hardly considered ‘small’ (however small it is, it would be at least the wide of a piece of paper), and that’s precisely what ZUtA Labs wants to change with the Mini Mobile Robotic Printer. the Mini Mobile Robotic Printer breaks the tradition of printer; it runs along a piece of paper laying out ink when required as oppose to being fed with paper. the Mini Mobile Robotic Printer is essentially the printer head/cartridge section of your otherwise huge printer. its creator basically ripped it out and reinvent it by blessing it with a ‘brain’ (software) and a set of wheels that allows it to roam across a piece of paper. another beauty apart from its obvious portability is the device is not restricted by the size of the paper, so you can print virtually on any size paper of any gsm, which also makes jam paper a thing of the past.

Nikon COOLPIX S810c Android Camera

Nikon COOLPIX S810c Android Camera

the advantage of Android-powered camera is obvious to sharing fanatics, though its true benefit, well if you can even call them benefit, is the ability to shoot with apps, edit the photos and videos right there and then before, well, sharing them. despite the ‘alternative benefits’ the market remains skeptical and perhaps that is why until today, only Samsung and Nikon dares to continue charting this unproven ground. speaking of which, the Nikon COOLPIX S810c is the follow up to the firm’s first Android camera introduced back 2012, but unlike its predecessor, this one touts a slightly newer Android 4.2.2 OS, albeit not the newest of new. but with practically only one competition to wrestle with, i guess Nikon didn’t feel the need to go to the far end of the universe for the S810c.

Boom Boom Wireless Smart Speaker

Boom Boom Wireless Smart Speaker

there are portable speakers and then there are portable speakers that beckon to be touched and such is what the Binauric’s Boom Boom Wireless Smart Speaker by Mathieu Lehanneur is about. it is one portable speaker unlike what you have seen to date. it shakes off the mundane form of oblong-ish or cube design and adopts a multi-face geometry, wrapped in a soft-touch design that beckon to be held and touch, and it talks too. it speaks in several languages, turning an otherwise cold gadget into a companion, while Bluetooth offers connectivity for wireless audio streaming and like most good Bluetooth speakers, doubles as a speakerphone. no Bluetooth? not to worry, there is always a line-in audio jack for non-Bluetooth sources.

Johammer Electric Motorcycle J1

Johammer Electric Motorcycle J1

it might look hilariously like a snail, but the Electric Motorcycle J1 by Austrian electric bike maker Johammer ain’t no slow poke; it is well capable of achieving 120 km/h (75 mph) and has a claimed range of up to 200 km (124 miles). its ‘odd’ form is not by accident; it is by design that it sports two tall side mirrors and a huge body. notice how it doesn’t seem to have an instrumental panel? well, it doesn’t – instead, information like speed, charge indicator and stuff are integrated on the side mirrors, and hence the unusually tall post for the side mirrors to facilitate easy reading. as odd as it may sounds, this could also be a pricey move as any tip over may potentially crush your wallet in order to replace them. never in history have mirrors been so delicate. really. and having rings of LEDs on them only adds to the cost, though we must admit they are rather attractive.

HeliCat 22 Helicopter-inspired Catamaran

HeliCat 22 Helicopter-inspired Catamaran

is it a boat? is it a helicopter? or is it a seaplane? well, it is actually a watercraft, or a catamaran to be exact. we were as dumbfounded as you might have when we first saw this contraption. correction. it should be: we were pretty excited first when we thought it could actually take off and fly. alas, it couldn’t but still it presents as a novel watercraft for those who thinks $74.9K is a drop in the ocean. this unusual catamaran was a creation by Washington-based, very aptly named firm, HeliCat and this particular model you see here is the 22, a 22-ft long example (or 21.5 feet to be precise). unlike traditional catamaran, the HeliCat adopts a helicopter-style upper which, when equipped with the optional vinyl side doors, prevents water from collecting on the craft.

GCT CR-1 Carbon Fiber Camper Trailer

GCT CR-1 Carbon Fiber Camper Trailer

when it comes to road-going vehicles, carbon fiber is a symbol of luxury as opposed to actually having gold or precious stones stuck on them. not that you can’t have it all gold, but carbon fiber is lightweight and strong which spells practicality for automobiles – especially so when you are towing it like the GCT CR-1 Carbon Fiber Camper Trailer will be. we are not incline to call it a RV, or recreational vehicle cos’ it is essentially a lengthen camper, which we are perfectly fine with btw, but the letters RV tends to conjure up an image of self-propelled vehicle. anyway, here it is, the world’s first camper constructed entirely of carbon fiber which the company, Global Caravan Technologies, anticipates a base weight of around 6,000 lbs (2,720 kg). not bad for a massive 35-foot (10-meter) long trailer.
