Here are some rumors about the Nokia N96. So is this how it looks it? This is said to be the concept of Nokia N96. It is said to come with a WCDMA 2100 850/900/1800/1900MHz handset with HSDPA connectivity, 10GB of internal memory (yeah, right), a 3.2″ 16 million color display, WiFi and Bluetooth 2.0 connectivity, a full QWERTY keyboard, a 6.0-megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics, an integrated FM radio, GPS navigation, and a motion sensor. No memory card slot? I don’t think you need one, it’s already 10GB.
Beautiful High Resolution Panoramic Views of the Airbus A380 … don’t miss the first class …

David Münscher has designed a camera concept called the Canon Snap. This camera is small enough to fit in your finger and it only has one button for your photo taking. Hope they really put this into production. But I’m sure it will be pricey.
Nissan has officially unveiled its new GT-R at the Tokyo Motor Show 2007. GTR’s performance can put Porsche 911 Turbo, Dodge Viper, and Corvette Z06 in competition.

A replica of the Optimus Prime (movie version)truck is currently being sold on eBay. The working truck comes with a voice activated alarm, with the voice of Optimus Prime on lock and unlock mode, 17 inch LCD TV/DVD, a JVC JAVX33 Stereo CD/DVD player with Bluetooth and Satelite Radio ready, Infinity Sound system, speakers and subwoofer, and other goodies!

It is a Sony, and the name is… DSC-T2.

Will be available in December for about $350. It will be available in white, black, blue, green (save the Earth, save the Earth), and pink (ya, right) versions.
Crazy pictures of people getting off the transit system somewhere, I presume in New York. I didn’t know that you got your picture taken with each turn of the turnstyle. Crazy.
This bookshelf system is hands-down the coolest thing I have come across lately. What a wonderful way to turn your bookshelves into a scultpural object.
I like the tissues.
Three friends spent three months in China building a large robotic looking creature out of a Citroen C2. The thing stands 15 feet tall and has been named X2. It is loosely based on Bumblebee and Jazz from the Transformers movie. They wanted to make an Optimus Prime, but said it would stand over 7 stories tall (and be a lot cooler). The legs can bend a little and the fingers move, but that’s about it for transforming capabilities. Making it NOTHING LIKE A TRANSFORMER. It’s a robot sculpture that doesn’t do shit (except look cool).
The URWERK 201 is not just a watch that tells time in a unique way, no sir — it’s a watch that tells time in a unique way and probably costs more than your house. Designed to appeal to sports car buffs, this thing is ridiculous. It tells time with three hands that rotate to display the hour, and telescope to point to the exact minute (it’s 3:18 in the picture). Ten are being made, and the unit must be serviced every 3 years. If you buy one I want to be your friend. Did I mention it shoots laser missiles and comes with a ball massager? Well it should.

So, how much do you love bikes? I can bet not more than a uber-rich British motorcycle enthusiast who has bought a collection of motorcycles, which are made famous by the hit TV show American Chopper. The aficionado has spent £500,000 (US $1,017,832) on the featured choppers. Alan Hardcastle, director of international bike firm LIA Imports, marked out over £500,000 bikes shown on Discovery Channel’s American Chopper series. The American Choppers is a cult series that tracks the daily tension, tirades and triumphs of a father and son team, as they run a business creating custom motorbike masterpieces in their Orange County workshop. The bike fanatic wants to ride them all alone. What’s your obsession?
Nissan is back with another mobile office concept for the 2007 Tokyo Motor Show after their glamorous science-lab themed 2006 Nissan Terranaut. This one too hides a full mobile office in the rear targeting ocean photographers, this year. The NV200 concept features rugged-looking exterior with a traditional box-like storage space in the rear with impressive interiors. “The interior is created to combine efficiency and a human touch, mentally refreshing its occupants when traveling to or from a job site.” The rear pod accommodates all the equipments a professional ocean photographer needs including a a remote control panel for a spider camera, as well as equipment for organizing and editing photographs and images while on assignment apart from a variety of diving gear including flippers, oxygen tanks and an underwatersea scooter. But, don’t let the rugged looks despise you for this aesthetic mobile office concept counts in the LCV class.
Hyundai, a company best known for their line of affordable personal transportation machines, is releasing the W-100, a cell phone watch with 1.3 megapixel camera. It comes complete with touch-screen and stylus, Bluetooth connectivity, MicroSD card, and will play MP3s. An English version will be made, but no word on pricing yet. Now I’m all about a cell phone watch, but I don’t know about a Hyundai cell phone watch. Because I used to have a Hyundai, and the damn thing kept driving itself into parked cars. Not only that, but the bastard was too cheap to ever leave a note.
