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. When a shopper approaches it, the wall determines whether the person is male or female,...

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...

Vizio Unveils Android Tablet and Phone, Google TV and Cheap 3-D

Vizio made a name for itself by selling tons of affordable, yet quality, flat-screen TVs, and helping make the HDTV more of a standard household accessory. Now the company wants to do the same for smartphones and tablets. Details about the eight-inch Via Tablet and four-inch Via Phone are not 100-percent filled in, but we do know that they'll be arriving this summer, and that they'll be running...

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,...

U.S. Watches More Than 80-Percent of TV in Standard Def

According to a recent report from Nielsen, 56-percent of U.S. homes have both HD TVs and high-def service. Despite that fact, more than 80-percent of programming in the U.S. is viewed in standard definition. Calling this number shocking is a bit of an understatement. The American public has pumped billions of dollars into the electronics industry by purchasing HD TVs, and now most popular shows,...

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...

Watch Out, Kindle -- Dual-Display E-Book Mimicks Reading

It's no surprise that more displays is always better, but when it comes to mimicking the act of reading a book, dual displays is a clear step forward. Researchers at Maryland and Berkeley Universities developed a prototype dual-face, modular e-book reader that allows readers to fan pages to advance in a book or via trackball. If you're doing some serious research, the displays separate from...
