WickedLasers Photonic Disruptor Review

WickedLasers asked if we could review another of their high powered laser pens. Of course I said yes as no matter how many laser pens I have seen in the past I still find they are very cool (although dangerous if not used correctly). The laser is named the Photonic Disruptor and unlike every other laser that requires safety specks to be worn to protect the eyes, the disruptor is supposed to be aimed at people’s eyes to temporarily disorient them. In the words of WickedLasers it is described as…

an extremely effective, non-lethal, waterproof high powered green laser built specifically for rugged, harsh environments. This laser is classified as TALIĀ¢ (Threat Assessment Laser Illuminator)…. This tactical laser is equipped with versatile focus-adjustable collimating lenses to compensate for range and power intensity. Laze a non-lethal focused or unfocused beam towards potential threats at a distance. Used properly, the Photonic DisruptorĀ¢ will temporarily overwhelm a threats visual senses without causing permanent eye damage.

Samsung Create a Bendable OLED Screen

samsung-flexible-amoledSamsung have created a new bendable OLED display. It measures 6.5 inches and is completely flexible. Samsung claim that the prototype screen is way more flexible then other AMOLED screens created.

The bendable display does not require low-temperatures to create an image unlike screens before. This has dropped production costs by a fair bit giving it potential to actually be mass produced. With the whole process being simplified it could mean we start seeing flexible screens sooner rather then later. [Read more…]

The photo frame is called the Human-Rh and comes in 2 models which are the 7.6″ HDPF-760D and the 8″ HDPF-800D. [Read more…]

Nintendo Wii Fit Plus on it’s Way?

Not many details are to be found in the trademark although there is a designed logo which would indicate that Nintendo could well be working on a new product rather then just protecting a potential future product.
