SMART STUFF | ARCHIVE | PHOTO/VIDEO/DVD |..1..2..3.....>

Welcome to the Smart Stuff photo/video/DVD section with some of the world's smartest gadgets, inventions and ideas for photo, video and DVD. Below you'll find our constantly updated archive of the world's smartest photo/video/DVD tools and gadgets.



Cinergy Hybrid T USB XS
Yet another USB TV.
All who liked the idea of the USB mini TV below, will be happy to learn that there is another player in the market. Enter the Cinergy Hybrid T USB XS and it receives both digital DVB-T (via a supplied compact antenna) and analog TV. Both into your laptop via USB 2.0. The thing also supports recording, both analog and digital, with MPEG 2, and has (naturally) a remote. There is also a bunch of cables and connectors supplied to make import of video and audio from camcorders possible. The recommended price is EUR 129:- (about USD 160:-) and you can order yours at Terratec.

USB TV Stick from Compro
Possibly the world's smallest television.
From now on you do not have to miss the game just because you have to work. Or drag a television along to your cottage or boat. With this smart USB device you can watch television anywhere you happen to be (providing there is a signal). It is called USB TV Stick, comes from Compro, and is able to receive both analog and HDTV through the USB port. It supports both PAL, NTSC and SECAM standards, and also recording in MPEG 2 and 4. The best part, however, is that this little wonder works without an external power source. It takes al the juice it needs from the USB port. Should you be interested in the HDTV version, be advised that it requires a 2.4 GHz processor, while the analog will make do with 800 MHz. Via Gizmodo and Trusted Reviews.

 Gyre 6300 TV hider from Reversica

Fat plasma hide-away.
It it possible (and understandable) that you want to show off that flat, fat plasma you just paid an arm and a leg for. But if you are seriously short on space, or really want to hide it away when you are not watching, maybe this thing can be something for you. The TV hider Gyre 6300 comes from Reversica, and this should really not be possible (se the pix above). To turn a TV that big should take more depth than the 18" (45 cm) offered by the cabinet. However, Reversica claims to have solved the problem with their "rotaxial" technology. What they have done to keep the cables from getting entangled they do not say, but we will trust them on that. Thanks to Engadget.

Samsung VP-M110S tape-free digital video camera Samsung VP-M110S tape-free digital video cameraSamsung VP-M110S tape-free digital video camera
Solid state memory video camera – at last!
We have had a complicated relationship with cassettes for a long time now. First there was our brand new music machine from Hitachi, that had a tape format all of its own. It did not work very well. After that, there was our dad's 8-Track that shredded our favorite tapes sometime in the distant seventies. After that we discovered the world's best video format (remember Betamax anyone?) that led us to splurge on tape deck and camera with a portable (well) tape-deck.

After that both tapes and cameras have gotten a lot smaller, but our cassette issues have remained with us and we have stubbornly avoided to add a camcorder to our possessions as long as they recorded on tape. That is why we are among those that stand up in the aisles to welcome the new digital tape-free camera from Samsung, the VP-M110S.

We had the pleasure of laying our slightly trembling hands on one at the local OnOff store the other day. It is actually smaller than it seems to be in the publicity photos (the Koreans must have small hands), it has got a 10x optical zoom, 2" color screen, 1 GB built in flash memory giving from 22 to 130 minutes of recording time in MPEG4 at 720 x 576 px resolution and 25 fps, electronic stabilizer (could be handy, since the cam is a flyweight at 150 grams), card port for Memory stick PRO, USB 2.0, 800 x 600 px stills in JPEG and a LED flash. Add to this an MP3 player (it comes with headphones), voice memo and web-cam. If it was up to us, we would skip the MP3, voice memo and web-cam to chisel some clams off the price tag. After all, it is the video-cam we want? It is SEK 6.496:- (USD 831:-) at OnOff.

PS. Amazon started selling the slightly sportier SC-X105L MP4 a couple of weeks ago for USD 599.99. It sports splash protection, a rubberized skin and an extra camera module to be fastened to your helmet to record all your daredevil stunts. On the other hand it packs only 512 MB of memory. /Ed.
