Fluttering Wind Generator Lights it Up

ITP students Michell Cardona and Nelson Ramon Ramirez created several different oscillating wind generators before settling on something that works the best. Similar to the Humdinger in function, their Linear Wind Electricity Catcher works by fluttering a magnet in close proximity to a transformer, which translates kinetic energy to electrical energy after being rectified.

Samsung Conquer 4G review

It's peculiar how a simple number and letter can cause the price to skyrocket when added to the end of a phone's name. But that's exactly what the term "4G" does -- ultimately, making a phone or tablet compatible with a carrier's next-generation network seems to add value (and cost) in unthinkable ways. There's a growing concern in the mobile industry; Sprint's WiMAX 4G coverage, once a novelty in the United States, is now just one of the boys. It faces direct competition against its two (much larger) LTE brethren in Verizon and AT&T, and the Now Network is searching for other methods of utilizing its high-speed offerings. In doing so, the carrier wants to keep the value high without escalating the expense.

Enter the Samsung Conquer 4G, the latest addition to Sprint's blazing-fast lineup. Rather than going head-to-head with giants like the Photon 4G and EVO 3D, the company's strategy is to offer a WiMAX-enabled handset that's light on the wallet. It's not the least expensive of the bunch these days -- the Samsung Nexus S 4G takes the cake there -- but it's another option to toss into the network's growing lineup. So does this mid-range handset have a shot at living up to its namesake? Keep on reading to find out.

Samsung announces three Wave handsets, dripping in Bada 2.0 and ChatON

It's shaping up to a be a busy IFA for Samsung.

Leading the pack is the Wave 3, which leaked earlier this week. Powered by a 1.4GHz processor, this little guy boasts a 4-inch WVGA Super AMOLED display, 3GB of memory (along with a 32GB microSD slot) and a five megapixel, auto-focus-enabled shooter. The Wave M, meanwhile, packs slightly less juice, with a 832MHz processor, a 3.65-inch WVGA screen and 150MB of onboard storage (with a 2GB inbox and 32GB microSD slot). Rounding out the collection is the Wave Y, with its 3.2-inch HVGA display, 832MHz engine and two megapixel camera. All three feature your usual smattering of WiFi / Bluetooth 3.0 capabilities and will ship with ChatON and Samsung's Social Hub baked into their DNA.

Snow Leopard to get iCloud support in 10.6.9 update?

Apparently those of you who aren't upgrading to Cupertino's latest and greatest desktop OS will be able to sling bits through iCloud with the upcoming 10.6.9 update. The screenshot above comes via an eagle-eyed developer, who's already upgraded his MobileMe account to the service and also happened to open its forebearer's preference pane on a machine running Tiger. No word on when it'll drop (we'd place our bets alongside iOS 5's launch this fall), but looks like those of you running Snow Leopard got some readin' to do.

Quickoffice update brings document editing to the TouchPad

Well, we knew it was coming, and folks, it's finally here -- the promised update to Quickoffice HD that brings document editing to HP's webOS slate. Available gratis for TouchPad owners, the overhaul enables text formatting in Word docs, in addition to enabling cell and function editing in Excel spreadsheets. Unfortunately, editing of Powerpoint presentations is sorely lacking, but that's nothing another update can't cure, right?

Gene-Z: Ipod-Based Tablet Performs Genetic Analysis on microRNAs

Researchers from Michigan State University (MSU) developed a low cost device which is able to perform genetic analysis on microRNAs. The device, which is called Gene-Z, operates with an iPod Touch or Android-based tablet and can be charged using solar energy. This makes it a perfect tool to use in low-income and resource-limited countries. �It makes it possible to screen for cancer markers in rural areas where the pathology department is far out of reach or non-existent.

Syed Hashsham, a professor of civil and environmental engineering at MSU, worked together with Reza Nassiri of the Institute of International Health. He demonstrated the Gene-Z at the NIH Cancer Detection and Diagnostics Technologies for Global Health Conference last week.

Touchpad port of CM7 in the works, can barely be called an alpha (video)

Touchpad CM7
Supposedly there are some magical Touchpads out there with Android pre-installed on them, but that won't help you load it up your new collectors item. Thankfully the Cyanogen Mod team is hard at work on a port of Google's mobile OS for your HP slate and aiming to claim the bounty on its head. It's still in the extremely early stages. At the moment it does little more than boot up and unlock with the aid of ADB -- even the touchscreen isn't working just yet -- but it shouldn't be too long before you can swap out webOS with CM7. Check out the brief demo video below.

Haptica Braille Watch Concept Design in Development

David Chavez, a product designer based in San Fransisco, has come up with a really neat concept design for a braille watch called Haptica. Though the product has not been fully developed yet, the concept design has been kicking around for a little while. The watch is read by sliding a finger through a slot on it’s face, at the base of which are braille dots which represent the time.

According to the video (see below), a number of braille watches currently exist. However, these can be slow or difficult to read without attracting attention. Haptica aims to overcome these limitations by making it easy and quick to read with a single finger swipe. The Haptica design has already won several awards and is currently in the early stage of fund raising and engineering. The implementation for the braille time-face presents a substantial engineering challenge and it will be interesting to see how this will be implemented.
