Nokia J Bluetooth Headset

Nokia J Bluetooth Headset

I’m not a big fan of headsets, but the Nokia J Bluetooth Headset sure looks good. Besides the shiny, curved, stainless steel housing it sports a clip to carry it in (yeah, wearing a headset all the time just to look like you’re expecting important calls isn’t impressing anyone) which automatically turns the headset on/off when used to preserve battery time. Also, you get DSP noise reduction, automatic echo cancellation (AEC), automatic volume control that adjusts to your surroundings and two sets of small, medium and large earpieces. As for the battery you get up to 3 months of standby time and 5 hours of talk time.

The Nokia J is compatible with any phone supporting Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, Headset Profile 1.1 and Handsfree Profile (HFP) 1.5.

Buy @ Nokia J Bluetooth Headset ($119.95) Product page

FRAMED*: A Platform For New Art Forms

Framed: A display / platform for new art forms

Here’s FRAMED*, a “platform for new art forms” conceptualized by Tokyo based interface designer Yugo Nakamura of tha ltd. Did I hear you ask “Well, isn’t it just a flat screen TV?”. No, it’s more than that. It’s a display acting as a frame for visual art, which you can then just either let animate on its own or interact with using, say, your iPhone. Since there’s a microphone, camera and stereo speakers (+ wireless audio transmitter) built into it as well I’ll just assume there’ll be some highly interactive things created for it, art reacting to its surroundings.

It’s 37.4 x 22 inches big and 1.3 inches deep, containing a 40" Samsung LED Full HD display. Underneath the hood you’ll find an Intel Core i5 based machine running Windows 7 supporting Adobe Flash, Processing, openFrameworks and Cinder. Add WiFi, Bluetooth and a USB connectivity to that and you’ve got something that might just be able to create something more interesting than a regular poster.

FRAMED* is not available for purchase just yet, but follow them on Facebook or Twitter to stay updated.

Project Squadt Vinyl Toys

Oh man, Project Squadt is a collaboration between Austin, Texas-based Ferg and ThreeZero brought to you by Jamungo and it consists of a limited edition (and amazing) set of aggressive little creatures standing 4″ to 6″ tall while featuring interchangeable masks, eyes and weapons. I want all of them guarding my office desk, too bad they’re all sold out in the official store right now.
