Gmax 3D-Druck 3D-Drucker Übersicht

Gmax 3D-Drucker
3D-Drucker sind keineswegs eine neue Erfindung - frühe Versionen zurückverfolgt werden kann zurück in den 1980er Jahren. Aber es ist nicht jeden Tag jemanden treffen, der einen 3D-Drucker aufgebaut hat, um dann entwerfen und ihre eigenen viel größeren 3D-Drucker drucken, das wird dann verwendet, noch mehr 3D-Drucker zu drucken, die dann als Flat-Pack-build-it-yourself generative Fertigungsvorrichtungen, die eine größere als durchschnittliche Bauvolumen von 41x41x23cm verschifft.

LaPlante besteht darauf, die Gmax sehr einfach zu montieren, als Käufer müssen nur “gleiten in und Schraube” die Stücke zusammen. Es ist vielleicht nicht gerade noch in Ihrem lokalen Maplin Speicher verfügbar sein, aber es ist auf jeden Fall einer unserer beliebtesten und innovativsten Gadgets 2013.

intel-Nuk-Kit-bottom

Whoever said good things come in small packages has never been more spot on as far as Intel’s Next Unit of Computing (NUC) is concerned. It’s one of our top gadgets of 2013 chiefly because we’re still flabbergasted by the sheer amount of computing power available in such a tiny box.

The NUC itself is by no means brand new, aber what this year brought us was the addition of Intel’s fourth-generation Haswell processor in the same compact form factor, making the NUC just as tiny and versatile but with more power and even lower energy consumption. There are also two SO-DIMM slots for support of up to a massive 16GB of DDR3 memory.

Intel’s Haswell-powered NUC is available now from around £250, depending on configuration.

FAM Sports Check fitness gadget KEEP GOING

Check fitness training gadget
We can’t say health and fitness gadgets usually gain much attention here atDer Inquirer. But when we heard about the Check training gadget früher in diesem Jahr, we made an exception.

What’s good about FAM SportsCheck gadget is that it is the first portable device to use electromyography technology, a technique for recording the electrical activity produced by skeletal muscles. Based on the phenomena of peripheral muscle reflex caused by electric stimulation, Check uses a sensor system that hooks up to a disposable electrode that is placed on your forearm. The electrode sticks to the wrist and is attached to the main device, which also has a sensor that sits on the tip of your thumb.

Check communicates over Bluetooth LE to an iOS or Androide device and when you hit thenew assessmenticon in the app it will send a low-voltage current through your body in order to stimulate the nerve-muscle connection and tell you if your body is ready for a day of training or not.

Check is aimed at fitness fanatics and professional athletes and is available from FAM Sportsonline store for £225, along with various bundles of disposable and non-disposable electrodes, which are sold separately.

The Smart Key fob

Elgato Smart Key
Another one of life annoyances: even in a modern age of 3D printers and wearable devices, remembering where you put your keys can sometimes prove a challenge. It’s a good job that this year Elgato devised a gadget for this predicament, dann, ist es nicht.

The Smart Key is essentially a Bluetooth-enabled fob that, unlike rival devices, uses Bluetooth Smart Technologie in conjunction with recent software upgrades in iOS 7, to promise a reliable, consistent and versatile gadget-finder.

It can be synced via the app under a name corresponding to whatever it is attached to: “handbag”, “suitcase”, “keys”, etc. If you leave something behind, the app will notify you accordingly, seeing that you never leave your valuable possessions behind again.

Drawing a house with Adobe’s Mighty and Napoleon

Adobe Project Mighty and Napoleon
Lehmziegel announced in September that it would take a serious step into hardware for the first time, and bring the internet-connected stylus experiment Project Mighty to production, along with a accompanying digital ruler called Project Napoleon.

The digital drawingtools deserve a place in our top gadgets roundup for 2013 because once we got our hands on them, we knew instantly they were one of a kind.

With a three-sided twist for better ergonomicsduring use, the stylus has a notification LED built into the end that emits a range of colours to signify information such as battery status and data transfer. The stylus is encircled with sensors so it can be charged in a USB charging dock.

They might not have become a purchasable reality yet, but the drawing tools – which are aimed at those in the Gestaltung industry who are looking for tablet and Smartphone accessories – offer an enhanced alternative to pencil and paper drawing.

The Google Glass display box sits on the top right hand side on the eyewear

2013 marked the first year that Google Glas became a tangible product; from mere prototype hype and mock videos in 2012, to something we could test out and use, albeit in an environment controlled by Google. But that didn’t mean we weren’t eager to get our mitts on the highly anticipated spectacles when we were invited to try them out back in summer.

From our demo, it was clear that Glass is more about the tech concepts it introduces, as opposed to a concrete device planned to make it big with consumers. Google isn’t promoting Glass as the next big thing in technology, but more as a proof of concept that it wants to receive feedback on and improve upon and just see where it goes.

Lightweight and futuristic looking, the eyewear is perhaps more an indicator of the kind of technology we are likely to see in years to come, and in that respect, we applaud Google for trying something new and giving people the chance to try an alternative to a smartphone. We think it’d be impossible to argue that it’s not a one-of-a-kind device, whether it becomes available to buy or not.

LG pocket photo

Korean hardware firm LG is perhaps best known for its substantial line-up of smart TVs, monitors and Smartphones. But that all changed earlier this year when the company unveiled a rather unusual device, claiming to be the smallest and lightest mobile photo printer auf dem markt.

Working with any smartphone or tablet, the LG Pocket Photo printerproduces roughly business card-sized colour prints via ZINK inkless printing technology, which LG says eliminates the need for expensive ink cartridges.

When we reviewed the nifty gadget, we found it extremely fun to use, working with a smartphone app that allows you to add filters and photo effects before printing out and covering everything you own with them.

The LG Pocket Photo printer is available now for £130.

Close up of the 3in Leap Motion USB device

The idea of Augmented Reality und gesture control proved ever-more popular in 2013, with more manufacturers integrating it into their products.

Love it or hate it, Leap Motion was the first to give those who don’t already own gesture-controlled devices the option of such a technology. Seine Leap Motion Controllerturns any PC with a USB port into a 3D motion-activated computer for just £70.

Die device allows people to control their computers with hand and finger movements, claiming to sense gestures made by your handsthe way you move them naturally”. Working withMac computers and PCs, the 3in device is powered by USB and downloadable software.

It’s a neat and unique little gadget, which also comes with Airspace, the Leap Motion app store that is said to contain more than 75 applications such as paint programs and games built by developers and designed specifically forLeap Motion Technologie. A welcome addition to the year’s line-up of quirky and unique gadgets. m
