The Moonlight laptop isn’t just any boring convertible tablet PC. Though the concept model looks a little thick for our taste, the curvy body and dual LCD screens are sufficient to cause oodles of drool.
Both displays are touch screen, with the smaller LCD serving as a mouse. The secondary panel can even be used to run a separate operating system or as an extension to the main one. In recognition that a curved body is hardly a stable surface, a pair of flip legs prop up the machine for a more ergonomic position.
that concept was designed by Modo forum member minibraun, a student in Croatia, for a “Laptop of the future” contest (which minibraun didn’t win). Nonetheless, it’s a sexy machine that at least deserves the light of day, even [...]

Updated at 1:30 p.m. PDT with more info about possible applications for the camera.
For shutterbugs who like to take pictures of fast-moving subjects, nothing beats a dSLR with high frame rates to capture precious moments like scoring a goal at a soccer game or a rally car cornering at breakneck speeds. However, high-end dSLRs such as the Nikon D3 can fire off at only 11 frames per second (fps). Are there other shooters that can rattle off much faster?
Scientists at UCLA’s Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science have developed a novel, continuously running camera that they claim is the fastest [...]
