In terms of gadgets, smaller is usually better. Technology company spend more time and money in order to create some of the world’s smallest, sleekest and most lightweight devices. Early next week, however, the giant technology will change gears entirely when it introduces its 58-inch Table Connect for iPhones, the biggest smart phone device you will ever see.
The Table Connect is basically a desktop with iPhone functionality. The huge multi-touch screen is equipped with a 30-pin Dock Connector that lets users hook it up directly to their iPhone. When attached, the Table Connect mirrors everything that is happening on the handset. All of the applications and data that are on the phone can be accessed using the 58″ capacitive multi-touch desktop. With a bit of magic, the table becomes your iPhone.
Table Connect States:
We are about to put the final touches on the “iPhone Table” prototype. Table Connect for iPhone is what you have been waiting for, multitouch on steroids!
For now, we start with mock-ups as well. Currently, we are finishing up the work on the alpha release software for the table.
The iPhone is attached via the standard dock connector – immediately after it is attached, the magic starts to happen. The entire content of the iPhone’s screen will be projected onto the multitouch table, still giving full access to all the touch gestures using multitouch technology.
Just by looking at pictures of the Table Connect for iPhone, we assume it will probably be out of the price range of most consumers.
Was your wallet ever stolen? Do your children or someone in your household steal money from your wallet while it is unattended?Do you want to conceal your personal information and hard cash in a wallet that only YOU can open and have access to? Devices such as mobile phones and portable media players are very attractive to thieves.
If you answered YES to any or all of these questions, then you need the iWallet! The only high tech wallet developed by engineers that work in projects with NASA. Thankfully technology can help prevent valuable gadgets falling into the wrong hands.
One way to keep your wallet safe is ensuring that no-one else can get to the contents of it – that’s the idea behind the iWallet.
It has a hard case with a fingerprint reader which requires the rightful owner to swipe their finger before the wallet opens up.
Being Bluetooth-enabled also means it can be paired with a handset that alerts the user when the wallet is removed and the connection drops off.
Bluetooth only has a limited range so an alarm is triggered when a mobile phone and the iWallet are separated by more than a few metres.
The inventor, Steven Cabouli, said he came up with the idea after falling victim to a pickpocket.
I was at a busy airport overseas, and someone stole my wallet. I felt so bad, my identity was stolen, everything,” he said.
“It occurred to me to come up with something hi-tech. I looked around, there was nothing out there. So I decided to create my own hi-tech wallet.
So, what are you waiting for? Buy iWallet now for US$ 399.0.
