postheadericon Samsung ‘TangoView’ vacuum surveillance camera will bring you to your knees

In a new milestone testing the limits of convergence, Samsung has just released a WiFi-connected robotic vacuum cleaner with an integrated “TangoView” home monitoring system onto the unsuspecting families and pets of Korea. Like LG’s Hom-Bot, first seen at CES in January, Samsung’s latest Tango cleaner (model VC-RL87W) features an integrated video camera that lets PC, smartphone, and tablet owners treat the vacuum as a remote controlled surveillance camera when not sweeping the floors. The relatively quiet vac operates at 48dB and features a microphone and external lighting. Why? Why not, we say, assuming you can get past the KRW799,000 (about $711) price tag.

RED EPIC shoots birds at 96fps, no dog needed to retrieve them (video)

Forgive us if we take a moment every now and again to relish in some resolution overload courtesy of a RED EPIC, but we just can’t help ourselves. The video below (and picture above) come courtesy of Tom Lowe, who filmed a sequence of birds frolicking in the water at Salton Sea, California, captured at 5K resolution and at 96fps. This gives everything a rather majestic air to it — though the soundtrack certainly doesn’t hurt. Click “play” and enjoy, and then wish that your connection were fast enough to handle an uncompressed 5K video stream.

[Thanks, Tom]

postheadericon JVC’s GS-TD1 3D camcorder now available for $1,700

JVC promised back at CES that its new consumer-grade GS-TD1 3D camcorder would be available in March and, well, it’s now available. While that may not be a surprise, JVC has shaken things up a bit with the pricing since its official announcement — instead of the full $2,000 that was originally expected, the camcorder will now set you back “just” $1,699.95. That will buy you a pair of 3.32 megapixel CMOS sensor that record 3D video at 1080i, a 5x optical zoom (or 10x in 2D mode), 64GB of built-in flash memory along with an SDXC card slot for expansion, and a 3.5-inch LCD that lets you view your videos 3DS-style without any glasses. Head on past the break for the complete press release.

postheadericon AIST shows off full-color night vision camera, well lit Bullwinkle figurine (video)

You might know them for seemingly ridiculous innovations like Segway shoes or the HRP-4C pop star robot, but the folks at AIST have put away the gimmicks for their latest invention — a full-color night vision camera. Produced by Nanolux, an arm of AIST, the camera uses a series of algorithms to read and process wavelengths reflected by objects lit with infrareds, allowing it to successfully reproduce reds, blues, and greens in the darkest of conditions. The company hopes to make the device available by the end of 2011 at a price point lower than conventional night vision cameras, and says they will work with different lenses to improve long-range photography for the device. Such an invention could have serious implications for fields like surveillance and wildlife observation, but fear not, AIST hasn’t lost its sense of humor — the company used a Bullwinkle figurine rotating on a Lazy Susan to demo its latest invention at Printable Electronics 2011. Check out the video after the jump.

postheadericon Hot Wheels Video Racer has a VGA camera under its hood, confirms that kids have it all

Damn kids these days and their cool tech toys! We know we sound cranky, jealous, and old, but how are we supposed to react to Mattel’s new Hot Wheels Video Racer? Yep, just as the headline reveals, everybody’s favorite matchbox car is now home to a VGA video camera that can capture 30 to 60 frames per second and a .95-inch LCD that allows you to play back that recorded footage right on the belly of the tiny vehicle. While a short clip of the Video Racer flying off a self-made jump may be pretty awesome, Mattel will also include protective cases so those wild and crazy kids can mount the cam to a skateboard or helmet. Disappointingly, the small car only houses 512MB of storage, which can only hold 12 minutes of video, but at $60, Mattel also includes a rubberized mini USB to USB cord for connecting the cam to a Mac or PC and child-friendly editing software. The Video Racer won’t actually peel out until the fall, but we managed to take a few shots of the little thing this week and nab some video of it while at CES. Hit the break for that video and start saving that allowance!
