"A variant of the yellowBird camera is being utilized within the Google Streetview technology. The prominent difference is that the yellowBird camera records video instead of photographs. The camera uses six cleverly divided lenses in order to capture every possible viewing direction. The data stream generated by the camera is impressive. Through a double glass-fiber connection, a stream of 1200 Mbit per second is captured and saved in an uncompressed format. Next to the camera, a surround sound microphone system enables to record audio at 96 khz as well.

The yellowbird camera can be utilized in a variety of ways. First of all, videos can be captured from a regular tripod. Additionally the camera can be setup within a steadycam suit and "float" above the head of the camera operator. Furthermore, multiple connections support the camera to be mounted on a car or under a helicopter. "

Gear  |  Gadget
The Rotgutonix Booze Detector let you know what's you¡¯re really drinking. Rotgutonix has a built-in chemical sensor that can detect the chemical composition of 6 brands of liquor: Johnnie Walker, JB, DYC, Havana Club, Pampero and Brugal. They expect in future version that be able to analyze the chemical composition of over 20 well-known brands, mainly rum, whisky, gin, and vodka.
"Just dip the Rotgutonix pen into a glass of alcohol (no mixers, please), and let it soak for 20 seconds. The pen¡¯s liquid-crystal display will tell you if you¡¯re about to drink some real whiskey or some nasty rotgut, it¡¯ll tell you. While I don¡¯t usually frequent bars that serve things in a jug marked ¡°XXX¡±, apparently the serving of nasty bottom-shelf stuff in the wrong bottle is a more common practice in Europe than it is here in the States. As a matter of fact, product designer Emilio Alarc¨®n decided to create the gadget after he had a bad run-in with a couple of glasses of headache and nausea-inducing rotgut in Spain."

Anti-Paparazzi Clutch Bag

Array

Gear  |  Gadget
Photos? No, thanks! This Crazy Clutch Bag is designed to you are NOT be photographed. It is an LED flash built-into a clutch purse, when the device detects a camera flash it will send out a brighter flash to blind the camera. Designed by Adam Harvey.
"Although Harvey began developing the device for his class, he wasn¡¯t able to perfect it, and since last fall he has continued to refine the design. Currently the wiring and batteries fit in a ladies¡¯ clutch, but he hopes to continue reducing the size of the device to the point that it could be worn in something as small as a pendant or tie tack. In its current form the device is activated by powering it on and then tilting the clutch. The sensor will register a flash being fired from up to a 45 degree angle each way.
The device works at up to 1/125 shutter speed, thus effecting slower, low-light shots. "
Harvey is currently working on the patent for the anti-paparazzi device, and continues to refine the design as well.
