Tag Heuer Meridiist Infinite With Perpetual Power Reserve
THAT time finally came! You know, the time when your smartphone runs by itself without needing an external charging power source.
Developed by the Swiss watch manufacturer TAG Heuer, the Meridiist Infinite is the first phone around with perpetual power reserve – it charges its own battery while in standby mode! And no, it doesn’t have a little running hamster inside!

TAG Heuer partnered with Sunpartner Technologies and, by introducing an invisible photovoltaic component in the phone’s sapphire crystal screen, developed the Wysips Crystal technology which charges the phone under specific natural or artificial light. There’s no mention about the price (but hey, it’s a TAG Heuer phone, don’t expect Samsung And Apple pricing!!!) but we know that the device will be manufactured as a limited edition with only 1911 pieces and will be made using high quality materials such as titanium, carbon fiber, and fancy rubber.

While the Vertu-look-alike phone itself does not present much interest for the regular consumer due to it’s high price point, it’s interesting to see how the perpetual power reserve technology included in it will affect smartphone development in the future.

NTT Docomo Touch Wood SH-08C - An Amazing Commercial That Can Not Pass Unseen
NTT DOCOMO is Japan’s largest mobile service provider, serving more than 60 million customers. The company operates a high-quality nationwide 3G network and an ultra-high-speed LTE network, one of the world’s first launched in 2010, which will be available to more than 98% of Japan’s population by FY2014.

The above is from the About Us page of the Japanese communication company NTT Docomo. Back in 2011, NTT Docomo partenered with Sharp şi Olympus and brought to the market a cool wooden back smartphone, the Touch Wood SH-08C. There were manufactured only 15,000 units and the model is sold-out! Given this phone is 3 years old, there’s not much worth mentioning about it. Maybe the pebble design and the wooden back cover, but you can easily get that with one of the wooden cases available on the market (check: World Map Laser Engraved Wooden iPhone 5 Case, Natural Wood iPhone Cases by SigniCase and Unique Wooden iPhone Puzzle Shaped Case For iPhone 4/4S and 5 for some cool wood smartphone back covers).

So why did I even bothered mentioning it? Because it had one of the coolest advertising campaigns ever. Hit the full screen button, put your best headphones on and relax to enjoy 3 minutes of amazing … smartphone advertising!

Microsoft Research Bra Sensors Could Monitor Overeating
Recent studies show that over one third of the adult US population suffers of obesity and more than half of them complain eating more when they are stressed.

As technology enters more and more in our lives, it was just a question of time until the overeating and obesity issue gets tackled by tech developers. Researchers from Microsoft Research invented a stress monitoring bra that keeps ‘en eye” on the wearers moods and helps regulate stress eating. The sensors are powered by a 3.7-volt battery, feature an EKG analyzer that captures heart rate and respiration, electrodermal activity, skin conductance and even general movement via an accelerometer and gyroscope – also check the Radiation Emergency Sensor Bra and the The Booze Sneaking Bra.

The collected data is streamed to a smartphone app and PC software where it’s analyzed to predict physiology changes that accompany eating and stress, including whether the subjects were happy or angry.
We’re looking forward to see this technology available “at large” as well as a masculine alternative for the Microsoft Bra Sensors!
