What magic is this praytell?! The SolidSmack Cool Tools of Doom n’ Stuff is BACK with a vengeance that can only be described as what you would get if you mixed kitteh paws with the lipless howls of a woodland badger… I know, intense and scary and cute all rolled up into 3-minutes of awesome!…

Handheld scanning. We haven’t seen enough of it. There are a lot of moments when I wish I had a simple, easy-to-use and cheap scanner readily available. Say, I break my favorite cup after trying to escape out the window from wild dogs. Why are there wild dogs in my house. NO IDEA. So, I want to…

Why, it looks like you’re enjoying your weekend. Spring hat, drink in your hand, veggie or steak kabob of your choice grilling on the hood of your neighbor’s car. If only life could be just a touch more exciting. May I introduce the SolidSmack Update? I may. KICK IT.

SolidSmack was on hand this past week at Dell’s Precision Workstation media event held at the Autodesk Gallery in San Francisco. It’s been a few years since Dell has launched an update to their Precision line with the T7500, T5500, and T3500 coming out early 2009. This May, however, that all changes with the new…

You know that burning sensation, the one where you dump crunchy granules of fertilizer all over yourself after the spreader explodes? Yeah, that one. What to do? You’re stuck because you want to finish feeding the nitrogen-depleted grass blades, but can’t. Your afternoon plans have been foiled yet again. Well, there’s no better time to…

You all are gonna flip, or rather, explode, when you see this. I’ve been looking for 3D CAD news out of Siggraph08 that happened last week, but have not found much beyond some announcements about rendering models. Fortunately, Mark Treadwell from Premier Rides came across some info and filled me in. A team from Berkeley…

That atomic rubidium vapor you’ve been storing in those old canning jars may soon be put to good use as a storage medium for images which, in turn, could allow 3D data storage, display and possibly manipulation. A group of physicists from the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa, Israel… yeah, that place, warmed up…

I’ll agree with you, workstations nowadays are just not cuttin’ it. Our desires for widescreen monitors, THX Dolby surround sound, air filtering, light therapy, web cams, and battery backups are diminished by plain old systems that just ‘get the job done.’ NO MORE! NovelQuest introduces… to you… in July… the ultimate in killer workstations… THE…

AMD has just been making all sorts of Duo-core, 64-bit waves with their new mobile ‘Puma’ platform release yesterday. There’s a lot of news, but not much meat about what this chipset will do for mobile computing or 3D, so here’s some key points to start a discussion. Maybe some others, more hardware savvy than…

As if Multi-touch technology wasn’t enough to make you sing and dance through the forest of TechBlogs, two developers have been working with Plasma and OLED technology to make whatever displays will be in the future thinner, more flexible… and yes, spreadable. Flexible Plasma monitor Shinoda Plasma has create a supper-thin (1 mil), super-flexible (wrap-around)…

While Micorsoft’s Surface is kinda cool, but also like the Pac-man console at that pizza place, the newly debut Microsoft Touchwall puts it all in perspective and drops an ax on what it would take to get multi-touch technology into your tech-grubby hands. All this uses is a couple hundred bucks of readily-available, rear-projection hardware…

Last night at 11 PM CST Microsoft let loose the fetters of Live Mesh, a new platform technology to synchronize and interact with data across any device and access it from anywhere from any computer or browser. Oh, but it’s so much more and it could, and I think will, affect how you work with…

Ok, enough of the silly posts. Time for something seriously cool and real. If you use Gmail, it’s an absolute pain to have it synced with Outlook. On top of that, if you use Plaxo and have all your other email accounts synced with Outlook, your Gmail account is an abyss of random email addresses…

There’s an interesting segment in technology that really has the largest direct effect on how we work and how teenagers spend 20+hours of their week. The Screen. That amazing peripheral you’re gazing into right now to which we’ve come to view the entire world through… until it goes black or your laptop is yanked off…
