The Jawbone JAMBOX is an incredible piece of engineering. It fits in your hand and has a wonderful rubber exterior that makes you feel confident that it can stand up to the rigors of life and come out unscathed. It’s sound quality is stunning and very reminiscent of the BOSE Wave sound system. The base is deep and full. If you place your hand on the surface that the JAMBOX is sitting on, you can feel the base. Mid and high tones are crisp and clear. Jawbone were very smart to keep the very loud 85 dB within a reasonable range to avoid distortion. This is one of the most exciting products we have reviewed this year. Audiophiles everywhere playing music on mobile phones and Bluetooth capable MP3 players +can enjoy phenomenal sound quality on the road without wires.

For many, when you think of bluetooth headsets, Jawbone quickly comes to mind. They’ve been leading the industry for years, and are on the cutting edge when it comes to packing new tech into a tiny little package that you carry around in your ear. They were kind enough to send us one of their newer devices, the Jawbone ERA, so we took it for a spin. You can see what we thought, below.
An installation prototype Emily Gobeille and Theo Watson put together with the libfreenect Kinect drivers and ofxKinect. The system is doing skeleton tracking on the arm and determining where the shoulder, elbow, and wrist is, using it to control the movement and posture of the giant funky bird! Imagine all of the creative applications in entertainment and education. Amazing work Theo and Emily, please pitch the concept to games makers. If Jim Henson’s Muppets become available in a game, I’ll be the first one to buy it.
Speed project – made in a day using openFrameworks and libFreenect.

Laptop trackpads, pointer sticks, whatever you want to call them you have no choice but to use them as they are built into you stock laptop. This is where Swiftpoint comes to free you to be more productive for hours and hours more. It’s a uniquely shaped mouse that has the grip and feel of a very expensive pen. It’s ergonomic design and strategically placed rubber surfaces offer the perfectly natural grip and feel that you wish all companies would take in consideration before launching new products. The Swiftpoint mouse takes the place of your existing laptop touchpad and with the included sticker mat with magnetic centering pad, you can actually use this mouse on the go (in a train, car, bus, plane, etc.) This is more than the latest fad or cutting edge technology. Swiftpoint identified a need and have decisively filled that need with a wonderful solution. I won’t be using the trackpad of any laptop in the foreseeable future. The usb connector acts as a charging dock and keeps your mouse where you need it, attached to your laptop.
