Adobe’s Project Mighty & Project Napoleon in Action
I’ve got mixed feelings about Adobe’s pen and ruler projects. On one hand, they’re undeniably cool. On the other hand, it’s still easier to do this stuff on a Wacom tablet, especially a Cintiq. I really don’t think iPads will be replacing desktops anytime soon.
Red decided to turn their Scarlet camera from the ultimate working videographer’s dream into a fixed lens paperweight. So Blackmagic picked up where they left off and built the Cinema Camera. But for $3,000, people with budgets like mine were still hanging onto their Canon 5D MkIIs.
Enter the Pocket Cinema Camera. It shoots Pro-Res and RAW, outputs to HDMI, and has an MFT mount. Oh yeah, and it’s sexy as hell. And you don’t even need deep pockets for the Pocket. $1K gets you the body. That’s not a whole lot more than a used 5D.
It’s amazing how the right color scheme can make a design so much better. I never liked the look of Bowers & Wilkins’ P3 headphones until they recently released these blue versions. Now I’m resisting the urge to buy a pair.
Bluelounge, masters of making cable management sexy, have released a new tablet stand called Mika. It can hold a Nexus 7, Nook, iPad - whatever. It can even support smaller laptops like MacBook Airs and Retina MacBooks. It clearly takes a page from the iMac’s stand design. And I’m OK with that.
DeviantART member tommyfilth refurbished an old mixer and gave it a brand new paint job inspired by the coolest (and deadest) Bounty Hunter in the galaxy. My girl has two Kitchenaids. You think she’ll mind if I turn one of them into Boba Fett?
If you’ve been waiting for those tokidoki-branded headphones from SOL REPUBLIC, today’s your day. Both versions are available for for $150 from tokidoki’s web store. The two versions only differ in their graphics. One has a traditional tokidoki design with the brand’s characters and logos all scattered around the headband. The other has a slightly more subtle bandana design. Grab a pair here.
I usually hate it when a franchise is whored out and merch is made left and right. But with one of my favorite things of all time, Neon Genesis: Evangelion, I can’t get enough of it. Stussy have collaborated with Gainax to create these classy iPhone 5 cases. Having the Stussy logo in Rei Blue (which should be an official Pantone color) was a great move.
That’s A LOT Of Upskirts: Lexar Announces World’s First 256GB SD Card
Lexar’s Professional 400x 256GB SDXC UHS-I is officially the world’s biggest memory card. With a minimum transfer speed of 600MB/second, you might need to take out a small personal loan when the memory card drops this October for the hefty sum of $899.99.
Last night at a pre-Tokyo Game Show event, in an attempt to prolong the lifespan of the PS3, Sony unveiled the latest PS3 design. This new model is 25% smaller and 20% lighter than the current PS3 slim and will come in 250GB and 500GB HDD models.
The 500GB will set you back $299.99 and the 250GB model will be available for $269.99 as a limited edition bundle packed with Uncharted 3: Drakes Deception Game of the Year Edition and a $30 downloadable content voucher for Dust 514.
But here’s the bad news…
It doesn’t play PS1 or PS2 games.
No biggie, though. You can download just about all the good ol’ stuff anyway. Plus, the discs top-load which totally reminds me of back in the day, so that’s cool.
Boosted Boards - The Lightest Electric Longboards Ever
I’m 28 years old. My leg-bones can’t handle landing skate tricks like they used to, but every now and then I get the urge to skate to work. I’ve been debating scooping a decent longboard and I think the fine peeps over at Boosted Boards have just what I’m looking for. Their electric longboards are just 12lbs., making them world’s lightest electric vehicles, they get about 6 miles out of a single charge, and they can hit speeds of up to 20MPH. The only downside is they’re a bit pricey. $1200 is no joke.
