The e-NUVO robot is the brainchild of the Nippon Institute of Technology, ZMP, ZNUG Design, and Harada Vehicle Design. These institutions teamed up to create a robot that could help students. The purpose of the e-NUVO was to give children a better understanding of robots. The robot also serves as a teaching aid for elementary and junior high school students.

The e-NUVO robot stands at four feet tall. The robot uses gyro sensors, cameras, and even has obstacle detection sensors so that it can interact efficiently with humans. The robot is also capable of having a conversation. The robots can be controlled either through a computer or a remote.

The designers of e-NUVO are hoping that e-NUVO will eventually be a common piece of technology used at educational institutions across Japan.

Asus Wave Face Concept Design

During the Consumer Electronics Show, a lot of companies would show off stuff from their R&D just to get people talking and fell how much buzz it could draw. Most of the time, these gadgets never go out into the market nor see the light of day after CES. One such concept is the Asus Wave Face Design.

Waveface Casa

The Waveface Casa is a large widescreen display that acts as both entertainment center and internet portal. When not in use, a flexible, decorative cover obscures most of the screen, only exposing small areas that display contextually-relevant information.

Waveface Light

Equipped with a touch-sensitive screen and backed by a soft, flexible material, the Waveface Light is an interface to the cloud that can be used in a conventional screen-keyboard configuration or as a flat, single-screen tablet.

Waveface Ultra

A highly-portable device that can be strapped to one’s wrist, the Waveface Ultra provides anywhere, anytime access to information and services. Its display can be snapped flat to enlarge the viewing area.

These are just prototypes and that folding netbook looks awesome. However, one of the main reasons why we won’t see them in store shelves any time soon is because they’re just too costly to make and too expensive for the market to bear. But let’s give it some 5 to 10 years.

Burton Method Snowboard

Burton is a worldwide leader and manufacture of snow gear, outerwear, goggles, and practically anything else that has to do with the snow. Recently, the company has been trying to perfect the snowboard and change how individuals experience the sport of snowboarding.

The Burton Method Snowboard is like a luxury sports car for snowboarders. The Daily Mail recently described the snowboard as being the equivalent of a supercar.

The Burton Snowboard sets itself apart from other snowboards with a binding system called the ‘Infinite Channel’ system. This allows a person to attach the binding to the sides of their boots rather than underneath their feet.

By attaching to the sides of the boots, the person is closer to the board ,which causes the snowboarding experience to feel more intimate. The Infinite Channel system allows snowboarders to get in a better position and have a smoother and more enjoyable ride.

The edge of the Burton Snowboard is made from titanium alloy. Titanium alloy material is light and corrosion resistant. The core of the board is made from a special patented alloy material that is 90% air and the underside of the snowboard is coated with non-stick Teflon.

Essentially, Burton wanted to create a snowboard that was extremely light, yet still had the mobility and durability of a heavier snowboard. The price of the snowboard (which is over $2500) is a price that snowboarders should expect to spend for the high quality and luxury this snowboard offers.

The Ricoh GXR

The Ricoh GXR is a versatile and compact camera that is small enough to be taken anywhere so that a person is always ready for a casual shot. The Ricoh is one of the smallest and lightest digital cameras on the market.

The company understands that a camera lens is what gives life to a photograph, so the company created the camera with an interchangeable lens. The interchangeable lens is the most notable feature of the Ricoh GXR. The lenses can easily be changed to match the mood and scene. A changeable lens is perfect for those who enjoy being creative with their photographs.

The Ricoh GXR is also well built. The body of the camera and its units have a magnesium alloy exterior. Magnesium alloy is an ideal material for digital cameras because it provides good heat-dissipation and magnetic-shielding characteristics. The camera is light, strong and has a high-class feel. The camera also has a non-slip pear skin finish for corrosion resistance.

Roddler Stroller

The roddler stroller is like a luxury sports car for babies. It’s a unique and creative stroller that combines hot-rod styling with the practical use of a stroller.

The style of the stroller is sure to turn heads and garner a lot of attention. The stroller comes in three colors – black, white, and red. Each color has a shiny chrome finish and special custom designs for the stroller can be created.

Unlike traditional strollers, the roddler stroller is created using three wheels. One wheel is in the front and two are in the rear. The stroller was designed to easily maneuver around and is created with durable and high quality materials such as stainless steel hardware, chrome grips, and carbon vinyl. The seat of the stroller is made from suede and leatherette so that the child is extra comfortable. The high-end materials make the roddler stroller a bit more stable and durable than traditional strollers.

The roddler stroller is highly desirable for fashion conscious parents, but the price tag is not very attractive. Parents can expect to pay $2000 for the roddler stroller. For an extra $500 parents can have the stroller customized so that it eventually converts into a tricycle. This is ideal for parents that want to recycle.
