Bluetooth gets intelligence boost, official colour of 2014, cobalt-60 thieves will die.
Twenty-seven years after introducing the world’s first graphing calculator, Casio has developed its most sophisticated educational Game Boy ever. Indeed, the new Casio fx-CP400′s 320×528 resolution screen isn’t just colour — it’s a freaking touchscreen that flips from vertical to horizontal. That’s a far cry from the drab 94×64 display on the the Casio fx-7000G from 1985.
The idea to create “the toughest watch in the world” came to Japanese creator Kikuo Ibe, when he dropped and broke a precious watch given to him by his father. The first G-Shocks were developed in the 80s, and 30 years on they’re tougher and smarter than ever. One item in particular, “the ultimate G-Shock”, has been developed to celebrate the anniversary, the MR-G.
Casio is not always the first name you think of when you’re shopping for a digital camera, but occasionally the company comes up with a neat feature that might have you reconsidering that Nikon or Canon. Such is the case with its new Exilim EX-ZR1000, which comes with a flip-around LCD display and a built-in stand that props it up in either portrait or landscape modes.
If you’re going to have a calculator watch, why trifle? Why bother with something that only performs basic arithmetic? You’re trying to make a statement, right: that maths is important to you. You should be able to do basic operations in your head. If you’re going to wear a calculator on your arm, why not wear a badass one?
A while ago, Casio came up with a new approach to sharing data and messages on a mobile device. Instead of a wireless data connection, it uses the camera to read and decode a multicoloured flashing light, not unlike morse code.
A lot of people obsess about fancy watches which are waterproof to 300m, have chronograph faces or come with diamond-crusted faces. But I’ve got news for you: nobody ever made a watch any better than the humble digital Casio.
