Ready to Browse the Web in 3D???

Folks at SpaceTime have stirred up how you browse the Web by offering a free application that lets you browse in 3D! The idea is pretty simple, rather than to have a 2D layout of your browser with tabs all over the place, SpaceTime breaks the "pages" out like a storyboard in 3D space. It's impractical if you're looking at a single page, but if you're doing a search, it'll stack your search hits in 3D thus making it easier to see them all at once. It'll do the same for your eBay searches, letting you browse through photos of the stuff you want to buy.





Cool eh? check it out here!

Penguins have to still wait since at the moment, this application is available for PCs only.

iPhone fever?



Got iPhone fever? While the only prescription is an actual iPhone, there's a Slide 2 Unlock application for Windows Mobile which should hold you over until the 29th. It is a Windows Mobile start screen application that allows you to swipe your finger/stylus across the screen to unlock the phone, iPhone style. Can be found here!

Lithium Ion motorbike prototype!



Tesla Motors has finally resurrected the electric car in screeching sports car form, it's the turn of the motorbike to get all Lithium Ioned up. While it's not the first electric motorcycle, it is possibly the most rough and ready design: if you can afford the $15,000 odd fee for a custom modification, a team at the Electric Motorsport shop in Oakland will take out the nasty engine in your ride and replace it with an array of Lithium Ion batteries. As a prototype, the company created a fully electric version of the Yamaha R1 which has a top speed of 100MPH, a range of 100 miles, does 0-60 in 3 seconds!
