Neptune Pine Smartwatch Keyboard

The Neptune Pine is one of those gadgets that make us wonder how come it did not appear until now!
On one side you have the Wow factor given by it’s unique style, on the other side you have the combined functionality of a smartphone that you can wear at your wrist as a regular watch.

Neptune, the manufacturer of Neptune Pine, is a Montreal company working on creating true smartwatches – we’re not speaking here about a watch that connects to your smartphone to bring additional functionality, but about a real smartphone, with all the features and functions you would expect from a smartphone.

Let’s take a look at Neptune Pine-s features :

  • 2.5in screen (resolution 432×250 pixels – 202 pixels per in)
  • Capacitive touchescreen
  • Connectivity: quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE, 3G, 802.11
  • WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, USB 2.0 (the plug is located in the smartwatch strap)
  • 5MP camera
  • GPS, Bluetooth, Regular headphones (3.5 mm jack)
  • 1Ghz processor
  • 3 storage versions: 8GB, 16GB and 32GB
  • 800 mAh battery (5 hours if talk time; 120 hours of stand-by)
  • Micro-SIM – like the ones used in iPhone
  • HRM (heart Rate Monitor); FM radio

The smartwatch runs on Leaf OS (a modified version of the popular Android). While the Neptune Pine‘s specs are impressive, our only worry is typing experience on a such small screen. Neptune confirmed they modified the way the keyboard is displayed on the screen and all the keys are as big as the keys used in the iPhone keyboard.

The Neptune Pine is available for pre-order with delivery in Q3 2013.

MeterPlug Helps You Analyse Your Electricity Consumption and Find the Power Hogs

With economy going the way it goes, more and more people are looking into ways of saving money. While there are some expenses you can simply avoid (think about changing your car or buying a new pair of jeans to put it in the closet along the other 25 pairs you already have), some expenses can not be eliminated. Think about food, electricity, transportation costs … etc.

The MeterPlug was designed with energy money savings in mind. Basically, you plug the MeterPlug into the electrical output and the power cord of the electricity consumer appliance in it. Being between the AC outlet and the consumer, the MeterPlug is able to monitor the energy flowing through. The information is communicated to a Smartphone via Bluetooth and is available to the end user via a dedicated app.

Apart the basic monitoring features, there is other cool stuff going on: The smartphone will hook up the GPS, find it’s approximate location and download the electricity prices table to be able to show you consumption prices by appliance. There’s also a module that allows you to turn On or Off the AC outlet via a timer or with a press of a button via the smartphone app.

The project is running on IndieGogo and potential delivery is set for April 2013. Check out the details and reserve your MeterPlug at discounted price.
