I love this show! Not only do we always have a great time, but I get to show off the latest and greatest technology to the masses. In this live epicsode we cover: TWITTER!
I had an appearance on Twin Cities Live today talking about eReaders. We went over 3 different eReaders that I own, but my collection is actually larger than that. I thought it was fun, and hopefully I was able to present the technology in a way that even a techophobe would understand.

Yes, it is finally here and I got to play with one! It's the Optimus Maximus keyboard and it is working... It's real... It's here... It's $1,500 USD. More info at *******www.artlebedev****/everything/optimus/
*******www.powercastco****/ - This isn't inductive power, this is wireless power. Actual wireless power! Using RF technology these pads will wirelessly beam power to your device. While the technology is not quite ready for prime time, it's a glimpse at what the future could hold. No more batteries, just be within range of a wireless tower and you're set!
The hackers at buglabs**** have come up with a really interesting lego-like hackable computer. The base unit is a Linux box with additional modules that can be snapped on. Not for the faint of heart, not only is hacking encouraged, it's required!

While not shipping yet the much fabled Sling Catcher was on display with a working demo at CES 2008. The new Sling Catcher and Slingbox Pro HD will work together which will be uber cool.
Sling Media has announced a new Slingbox that allows place-shifting of 1080i HD content. Gone is the old Windows CODEC and now we have a Slingbox with h.264. Very cool little box, and very sleek.
Keep an eye on the keys of the Optimus Maximus keyboard. Each key is a small OLED display that can be customized for different functions. Ben LOVES this thing.

A snorkel and scuba mask with integrated digital camera capable of recording both stills and video.
This looks like a great way to share what you're seeing underwater. Hands-free video operation makes exploring easier.
