The man in this video says that he managed to cobble together a device that can hack into any screen and transmit whatever image or video he wanted on the screen.
After watching the video your first reaction would probably be, “I want me one of those doodads!”
Before you go scheming on how you going to hijack the many large screens around KL and put a video of yourself (your girlfriend or pet) on, please note that as cool as the concept is, it is not real.
Still, very cool idea/trick.
Portable speakers are great for sharing music and other sounds from you iDevice but the thing is most are not terribly practical when your on the move. Enter the Tembo Trunks.
These virtually indestructible, specially designed rubber cones amplify the sound coming out from the standard iDevice earbuds up to 80dB and doesn’t require any external power source. Ingeniously simple.
The guys behind the Tembo Trunks idea are currently looking for funding on Kickstarter to get their project of the ground. They’ve already exceeded their minimum goal of US$10k and are closer to US$20k now. If you want to get your hands on a Tembo Trunk, the minimum pledge of one is US$40.

For those of you waiting for the latest HTC device to come to Malaysia, now is the time to rejoice. HTC Malaysia has just issued a media invite to the launch of the HTC Incredible S — one of the newer HTC devices to hit the local market.
The HTC Incredible S launch is pegged for this Friday, March 18. We’ll be there to give you the latest updates and details.
Top line spec of the HTC Incredible S include a 1GHz processor (sorry no dual-core) with a massive 768MB or RAM and 1.1GB of internal storage. In terms of imaging there are two cameras on the Incredible S. One is an 8MP rear-facing unit with auto-focus and dual-LED flash and 720p video recording capability. The other is a 1.3MP front-facing unit for video calls on top of picture taking and video recording. Wrapping it all up is a 4-inch Super LCD touchscreen (480×800 pixels). The Incredible S runs Android 2.2 (Froyo)
Other than that, everything else is what you’d expect from a contemporary smart phone with Bluetooth, GPS and WiFi all included.
Ahead of the official Malaysia launch, not much details have been revealed but a tie-up with a telco (most probably Maxis) is not out of the question. In terms of pricing, we have no real indication but we’re expecting the Incredible S to retail around RM2,500 outright.
And that’s about it, stay tuned for our Friday updates at the launch.
In the meantime, head on over to after the jump for a promo video on the Incredible S.
Remember the earlier creepy Xperia Play ad which shows an Android with implanted thumbs? If you wondered where the thumbs came from, this is the answer. It shows a man telling his story at the police station and we gotta admit, it is still a quite creepy.
