Slick Gadgets Don’t Get the Girl

Bad news for gadget-loving guys. It seems the majority of women don’t find smartphones or iPads all that attractive (who would’ve thought).

According to the “Gadgetology” study conducted by Retrevo.com, a consumer electronics website, only 36% of women surveyed find a guy with slick gadgets attractive as compared to approximately 50% of men.

“More women under 35 say they are more attracted to someone walking a dog than someone using a cool phone," Retrevo said in a blog post detailing the survey results.

Must Have Time Pieces for Your Favorite Geek

This watch is a true must have for the geek in your life. It displays time in binary format using LED lights.  The circuit board watch face has 10 blue LEDs that indicate the binary sequence (1, 2, 4, 8, 18, 32 etc.)  To tell the time you simply add the values of the lighted LEDs. The top row is for the hours and the bottom is displays the minutes.  After a bit of practice it will easier to tell time with this very geeky watch.

Imagine being stopped on the street and asked the time only to confuse the person asking as you flash them the lit LEDs.  That alone could provide many moments of amusement.

The Binary Watch features a soft leather band, stainless steel back and casing. It is also water resistant to three atmospheres and comes with batteries. It retails for $69.00

If you really like this concept you can also get a LED Binary table top clock.  It will really confuse mom as it will display the time in True Binary format or Powers of Two Binary mode.  The clock comes in black with red LEDs or silver with blue LEDs.  It retails for $19.99 - $27.00

On/off switches are used by computers to tell time to tell time with one these bad boys you can do the same. If your dream is to be one with the binary this is must have for your home, office, basement bedroom or the man cave.

With SixthSense Technology the World is Literally at Your Fingertips

Though iPhones are all the rage now, the SixthSense technology from MIT Media Lab may very well render them obsolete. SixthSense is a "wearable gestural interface" that allows users to make any surface interactive. Forget touch screens.

SixthSense is a mini projector, a camera, a cell phone, and the Internet, all in one. Need to check your email on the go? Simply draw an @ sign in the air and wait for the mail to appear on a table, a wall, or anywhere you choose. Want to take a picture but forget your digital camera? No problem. Just make a photo frame with your hands and SixthSense will save a picture of whatever's inside. You can even watch relevant videos while reading the newspaper or dial a phone number from your hand!

The technology is difficult to adequately describe so here's a video. No word on when SixthSense will be available to the general public or how much it will cost.

Paper, Plastic, or Robotic? Introducing PaPeRo!

PaPeRo, so cute!

Who wasn't excited when the first self check-out lanes appeared at grocery stores? That is, until the machines started malfunctioning, like repeatedly telling you to bag our item when you already did! Anyway, this new invention from Japan hopes to make your self check-out experience much more enjoyable.

Meet PaPeRo, the robotic cashier recently introduced at RetailTech Japan 2010. Apparently the company behind this 15" tall talking robot has been trying to find the perfect purpose for him (or her?) for nearly a decade and I guess they've settled on this. Clever.

PaPeRo verbally guides you on scanning your items and making a payment, although those same instructions are clearly displayed on the screen as well, so I think this little guy is just for fun. The video below shows how it works. The coolest part is how the guy pays by simply scanning his cell phone! Now that's a useful innovation!
