New tech, shiny tech.

A number of things which have caught my eye recently...

Electric DeLorean Car.

  
An all electric version of the Iconic 80's DeLorean car, supposedly coming in 2013.
Touted to go faster than 88mph, great scott.


Galaxy Nexus.

For those people living in a bubble, Google and Samsung announced the next generation of Android cell phone today in Hong Kong.



The Galaxy Nexus is the first phone to feature Android 4.0, codenamed Ice Cream Sandwich.  A redesigned user interface and features such as Face recognition to unlock the phone, Near field communications allowing things like Google Wallet and transfer of data by touching another enabled smart phone, vastly improved camera and awesome screen.
Really can't wait for this to be released in Australia.  Hopefully it will be on a decent network and the timing will be right for me to move away from Vodafone, whom I have been less than impressed with, without too much of a penalty.


Deblurring technology coming to a future version of Photoshop.

Impressive algorithm for removing camera shake blur from images, see the demo at this link...

The Canon EOS-1D X is the successor to both the 1D and 1Ds lines.  Featuring a full frame sensor, vastly improved high ISO performance.  3 digic processors with 1 dedicated to metering and autofocus, and pro video functions.
Very nice camera, but well out of my price range at the moment.
