Microsoft has made a new way to play games on the X-Box 360. This new way to play is called Kinect. Kinect first came out in Brazil, on June 1, 2009, and it was called “Project Natal”. The Kinect was first brought into the North America on November 4, 2010. Unlike other games, Kinect doesn’t need a controller for people to play, your body is the controller. Kinect uses a combination of cameras and microphones to detect the peoples moves. The camera is ranged at 6-10 feet to detect the person/people playing. We can fit as much people we want onto the screen, but the Kinect can only run calculations for two people at a time. The Kinect will recognize the peoples face and voice that already played a game on the Kinect.

one week of reading on battery life. it can read news papers magazines blogs out loud to you unless the rights owner made it unavailable. can display PDF documents natively. reads like a paper without glare even in bright sunlight.
This would be cool because it can read to a person who doesn’t know how to read. It also sends books in 30 secs instead of waiting for two weeks through mail.
The new Nintendo DSi XL for the first time in the company’s history, it’s made an existing platform bigger, with questionable reasons as to why. At 6.3-inches long and 3.6-inches wide, it’s both taller and wider (closed and held upright) than that 1989 Game Boy, and at two-thirds of a pound it’s heftier than either the original DS or PSP. Less than an inch thin, the handheld is still slender enough to slip into your pocket.

The person who created the Wacom Bamboo is I think Japanese people because they are the people that mostly use it. This was created not too long ago and finally came into the U.S and people are finally starting to get them in the U.S. This Wacom Bamboo is like for writing, drawing, internet, and for fun so it might be like a tool, and it is also really easy to use. It has a little mouse and a pen, you can go on the internet and it’s like a computer. You can get this in different colors. I don’t think this Wacom Bamboo has any bad thing about it because a lot of people rate it a 5*, maybe the only thing is that it’s small.
Apple created the iPad technology. The iPad was created this year (2010). The iPad is almost like a iPod touch/computer. It has really cool applications such as; itunes and safari, it could play videos, it has iBook and maps, the battery lasts 10 hours, it has a built in speaker, a wireless keyboard could connect, could work with the iPad and it has many more cool things about it. The iPad is an apple technology. The iPad plays music, has a Wi-Fi internet connection, you could put notes into it, and works almost like an iTouch. It could do many things. The iPad could store pictures on it and more things. The apple iPad does not have any disadvantages, well it cost a lot of money, that’s the only disadvantage. I learned that this iPad is really cool and could be useful to people in the future. There are two different iPads; one with Wi-Fi only and the other with Wi-Fi and 3G. There are six different costs because the different iPads and the gigabytes. There is 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB. The iPad isn’t out right now, but it’ll be out soon!
The My Touch 3G with Google was created and founded by T-Mobile. The type of technology is Android technology by PC. The technology operates the phone and makes it usable. This is actually a really cool phone, it has a lot of apps. tons of music and its just a really fun phone. So far the only bad things I have heard of are that it doesn’t have a key bored. Its also a little bit slower. I have learned a little about the Android technology.
