The sound of future, this is what we’ve been watching in movies for years, and it’s not near anymore, it’s there, alive right this moment. Miku Hatsune is a singing synthesizer application, it uses a Vocaloid synthesizing technology developed by Yamaha Corporation. Her voice is sampled from Japanese voice actress Saki Fujita.

It reminded me of a movie for Al Pacino called S1m0ne, When I first saw that I said this gonna be way far from us, technology isn’t that advanced to adapt hologram, and look where we are now…!

It’s a long story to write and talk about, and it’s going to take a long article to include everything, so if you want to know more about it, read these references in this order:

Computer peripherals manufacturer Buffalo Technology has announced the world’s first Blu-ray disc burner drive for personal computers compatible with the Blu-ray Disc Association’s new 128GB BDXL format announced last April. There’ll be two models: an external (USB 2.0) BRXL-6U2 and an internal (SATA) BRXL-6FBS-BK, and release dates are to be announced.

Whereas Pionner’s seems more powerful brand to me, has a SATA BDXL/DVD/CD burner expected to hit the stores in the middle of November.

Pioneer’s BDR-206MBK model  Specs:

SATA interface, 4MB of buffer memory. Capable of write speeds of (6x for BD-R SL/DL), (4x for BD-XL), (2x for BD-RE and BD-RE XL), (8x for DVD-R SL/DL, DVD+R SL/DL and DVD+RW), (6x for DVD-RW), (5x for DVD-RAM), and (24x for CD-R/RW), and will be bundled with CyberLink’s PowerDVD 10, PowerProducer 5, Power2Go 7, InstantBurn 5, PowerBackup 2, Medi@Show 5 and LabelPrint 2.

I Want This: First Quadricopter Controlled by iPhone/iPad/iPod

Parrot AR.Drone

It’s the first quadricopter that can be controlled by an iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad

You can control the Parrot AR.Drone using an iPhone, iPod Touch, or an iPad via its on-board Wi-Fi system. It was initially designed for the Apple platforms and will be also available on other platforms in the next few months.


Play with other users via a Wi-Fi network

Another major feature is the use of several AR.Drone on a network. Thanks to its own generated Wi-Fi network, players can create a game party where others players can join and play against each other.

The multiplayer game, named AR.Flying Ace, makes it possible to have a battle between two AR.Drone. Hulls are available in three different colors to easily identify your AR.Drone.
