Upper Deck Evolution 'Cards' Use LCD Screens to Play Highlight Reels

We thought collecting baseball cards went out with grunge, but apparently we were wrong. Upper Deck (one of the card companies that isn't Topps) is still clinging to life and pushing the envelope of what can legitimately be called a "card." The half-inch thick Evolution Series holds a battery and a small LCD, which loops a 60-second highlight real of one of four NFL players. Check out the...

Flashy Adidas Touchscreen Helps You Buy Shoes, Won't Hold Your Feet

Adidas and Intel recently unveiled a massive touchscreen wall that allows shoe retailers to house a large inventory without taking up so much floorspace. The adiVerse Virtual Footwear Wall, which was designed by U.K. group Start Creative, was recently unveiled at the 2011 National Retail Federation Convention.

3-D TV at CES: Going Small and Cheap, Whether You Want It or Not

As we wandered the halls of CES 2011, one thing became abundantly clear: that this 3-D thing just isn't going away. We'd previously written off 3-D TV and movies as gimmicky and prone to producing headaches, but the industry is clearly taking it very seriously. Last year, all the major TV manufacturers were pushing 3-D sets, and all were back this year with upgraded displays, new glasses and...

Parrot's DIA Makes Us Reconsider Our Digital Photo Frame Prejudice

We got our first look at Parrot's DIA digital photo frame a few days ago, and we knew immediately that we had to see it in person. So the first thing we did this morning was head over to the Parrot booth to spend some time getting acquainted with the first digital frame we've ever seen that actually induces true gadget lust. Beyond the stunning, lightbox-like design, the frame actually packs some...

Eyes on With Samsung's Stunning D8000 TV

The Samsung D8000 is the company's new top-of-the-line TV, and it's a stunner. It's a miraculously thin, Internet-connected, 3-D, LED-backlit piece of beauty. It even comes with a touchscreen remote that lets you watch video and check your social networking accounts. But the most impressive things about the D8000 are the incredible viewing angles (the picture being almost perfect even from the...

Parrot Debuts DIA, The First Drool-Worthy Digital Photo Frame

Digital photo frames are, in a word, a joke. Few technologies are taken less seriously by both geeks and consumers alike than frames, most of which consist of the cheapest LCD screens the manufacturer could source, crammed into a tacky plastic case. But Parrot, the company that wowed us at last year's CES with the AR Drone, just unveiled the DIA, the first digital photo frame to make us stop and...

Consumers Skipping on 3-D and Web-Connected TVs

During this holiday season, electronics manufacturers and retailers were counting on new tech like 3-D and Internet connectivity to help push TV sales, but it looks as though consumers have little interest in the latest gimmicks. According to Reuters, Best Buy chief exec Brian Dunn told analysts on Tuesday that 3-D TV sales were not living up to industry expectations. He blamed consumer confusion...

Man Drops $15,000 to Play Massive MMO on Monster LED

Share An eminent, yet unnamed, gaming god sat down for a session of unprecedented magnitude last week. The man supposedly dropped $15,000 to park his recliner underneath "the world's second largest LED screen." (He must have auctioned off a colossal stockpile of geeky, collectible figurines.) Housed a Beijing pedestrian mall, The Place, the screen measured over 80,000 square feet. The mysterious,...

A Virtual Miracle on 34th Street: Macy's to Debut Digital 'Magic Fitting Room'

The famous Macy's in Manhattan's Herald Square will debut a so-called Magic Fitting Room next month, which will allow shoppers to virtually try on clothes. A 72-inch mirror display will digitally swathe you with the latest styles from Marc Ecko, Alfani or whatever it is they sell there. (We don't like to go, because the staff literally corrals shoppers into one-way, single-file lines during the...

Toshiba First to Sell Glasses-Free 3-D TV

If you live in Japan, and happen to have a few hundred thousand yen laying around, you can be amongst the first to own a 3-D TV that doesn't require special glasses. Toshiba announced today that it would be the first to market with such a display. Twenty-inch and 12-inch models of the set will hit shelves in December for ¥240,000 ($2,880) and ¥120,000 ($1,440), respectively. Instead of...

World's Largest HD Screen Being Built at Charlotte Motor Speedway

For now, fans of the Dallas Cowboys can brag that their team's stadium boasts the world's largest HD video screen. Enjoy it while you can, Cowboys fans. According to DVICE, the Charlotte Motor Speedway will unveil, in April 2011, a 200-foot-by-80-foot Panasonic HD screen that will supplant the Cowboys' screen as the world's largest. The monster screen will cover an area of 16,000 square feet,...

Saudi Arabia Announces Immediate Suspension of BlackBerry Data Services

On Sunday, telecom regulators from the United Arab Emirates announced their plans to suspend e-mail, instant messaging and Web-browsing services for BlackBerry users, due to manufacturer RIM's refusal to allow the government to monitor the data sent across its network. Now, another major Middle East country has instituted a similar ban that, unlike the UAE's, will go into effect very soon. On...

Sweet 3-D Waterfall Displays 'Tetris,' Trounces SkyMall Inventory

We don't want to insult any of our loyal readers when we say that water sculpture, in general, rarely attains an aesthetic value exceeding the fine objets available in your monthly SkyMall catalog. (Maybe you have one? Send pics!) Perhaps Peter Barnum, Srinivasa Narasimhan and Takeo Kanade -- researchers at Carnegie Mellon University -- also enjoy the aesthetic of cheaply produced, disco...

Will Nintendo Use Sharp's New 3-D Mobile Display for Its '3DS' Device?

Last week, we told you about how Nintendo's next DS model will feature 3-D technology without those dorky glasses. However, details were pretty scarce. Today, one more piece of the puzzle might have fallen into place. According to an Associated Press report, Sharp has unveiled a 3-D mobile device display that works without glasses. While nobody will confirm it, we figure it's inevitable that...

What's the Best PC Monitor/TV for Under $350?

A reader asks: One of my college housemates just moved out, which is a good thing, but he took his TV with him. This is a bad thing. So I'm looking for a PC monitor that can do double duty as a TV, too -- something reasonably big, as good quality as possible, fast enough for console games and is around $350 or so. I'm stuck with a laptop 12-inch screen until you reply, so hurry up and just tell...
