Highlights of the week

I come across a number of news stories, articles and random stuff that grabs my attention during the week. Here is the my summary of the stuff that I liked best from this past week.

First up, the Consumer Electronic Show (CES) has been in full swing in Las Vegas this past week and here are my picks of the technologies that came out of it:

With the Kinect revolutionising how we interact with a computer, this device takes it one step further and uses your eyes – http://www.gizmodo.co.uk/2012/01/i-just-controlled-windows-8-with-my-eyes-and-it-made-me-believe-in-technology-again/

There were a lot of ultra-thin devices at CES this year but for me big is still better and this TV is ridiculous – http://www.gizmodo.co.uk/2012/01/massive-84-inch-ultradefinition-tv-wont-fit-in-my-anything/

And finally, Motorola finally showed off their latest Motorola Droid Android phone. I have the first generation phone in this range and am now waiting for them to release this to the UK so I can upgrade – http://phandroid.com/2012/01/10/motorola-droid-4-hands-on-video-ces/

 

Now a break from technology for a light-hearted picture that made me laugh (source)

 

When I created my most anticipated movies of 2012 list I didn’t know that Wes Anderson (of Royal Tenebaums and Rushmore fame) had a new film out. If I had it may have made the list (source)

 

It takes a lot for a watch to impress me but this watch by HYT uses pistons, bellows and liquid to tell the time and looks so cool. Shame about the £30,000 price tag! (source)

 

And to counteract the coolness of that watch, here’s a picture of a sceptical baby (source)

And finally, a video my sister posted up on YouTube of her covering the Metric song Gimme Sympathy.
