The video game controller is dead. Long live the video game controller. Sherrie Baker blasted enemy soldiers recently in the Los Angles Convention Center using a white plastic gizmo that was shaped like a rifle and looked nothing like the stalwart gamepad that's been around since the early Atari systems. "It's great," Baker said of the $19 controller that converted the two-piece Nintendo Wii Remote joystick into a single, gunlike device, allowing her to more ... [full story]

Like many people who follow technology, I waited for Apple's recent earnings report for the first glimpse of how the shiny new iPhone has been selling. The hype and long lines outside stores led to a cash-register frenzy, but neither Apple nor AT&T, the iPhone's exclusive carrier, would say how big of a frenzy. There were, of course, educated guesstimates from analysts who sometimes have the inside track and who generally have a vested interest. ... [full story]

The holographic video showed a tiny, 3-D man jogging in place inside a glass cube.   NEXT DIMENSION DIGITAL - The Grimage system lets a user stick a hand into an empty cube and have it appear in an on-screen 3-D world. The system takes information from multiple cameras and creates a digital 3-D version of the hand. In the demonstration at the recent SIGGRAPH conference in San Diego, people could interact with an on-screen jack-in-the-box, ... [full story]

Look around any airport waiting area, courthouse corridor or trendy restaurant and you're bound to find busy professionals thumb-typing on their shrunken keyboards.   SMART PHONES - Recently, cell phone manufacturers have been cranking out a slew of new models optimized for mobile e-mail. CNS Photo by Earnie Grafton. Road warriors, lawyers and other deal-makers find sustenance in mobile e-mail. In the past, chances were, typing on a BlackBerry. But that's changing. Maybe they prefer the Palm ... [full story]

When I was in college, the local newspaper employed a veteran baseball writer fond of commingling his analogies. This guy didn't just mix metaphors; he sliced, diced, chopped and tossed them in a light vinaigrette. In a single paragraph, the local National League team could be compared to a steamroller, a shooting star and a punch-drunk fighter. On a really good day, it could happen in a single sentence. I was reminded of the old ... [full story]

The summer movie "Transformers" is loosely based on a popular toy line that features, among other things, robots taking animal form. It's a fantastical idea, but also a case of art imitating life. Or more precisely, art imitating science imitating life.   NEW ROBOTS - OCTOR is a robot created at Clemson University to mimic the grasping abilities of an elephant's trunk, which can pick up anything from a peanut to a tree. CNS Photo courtesy ... [full story]

Occasionally, I have the version of the American Dream where I want to chuck it all and move to some quiet, rural town. Picket fences. Porch swings. Autumn pumpkin festivals. But of course, every Mayberry has its Barney Fife. (For you twenty-somethings, that's a reference to a bumbling deputy from the bad old days when we only had three TV channels. Look for "Andy Griffith" on YouTube.) Take Sparta, Mich., for example. Instead of Barney ... [full story]

So you're planning a vacation, trying to decide how many Hawaiian shirts you'll need, when a chilling thought arises. What about your phone? You never go anywhere without your phone. What if you need to arrange an elephant ride in Thailand? Or reserve a table at a Paris restaurant? Or seek medical advice in case of Montezuma's revenge? Will your phone work outside the country? And if it does, will calls be outrageously expensive? The ... [full story]

From hanging chads to computer glitches that mysteriously lose thousands of votes, Lori Steele figures there has to be a better way to run elections. Steele, a former investment adviser, became so obsessed with improving elections that she left her job to become CEO of Everyone Counts, a California company that specializes in Internet voting software for public and private elections. "I thought if the right technology were employed, we could have irrefutable elections," she ... [full story]

SAN DIEGO - If Qualcomm has its way, cell phone users won't be limited to buying ring tones, games and other applications only from their wireless providers. Instead, they'll be able to browse the Internet from their home computers to find downloads for their cell phones and have them installed directly to their handsets. The San Diego wireless technology giant Wednesday announced its new technology, called BrandXtend, which will make it easier for companies to ... [full story]

Thomas Szabo hit two buttons on the screen of a laptoplike control panel in a conference room at Telanetix in San Diego and up popped Bob Leggio on one of the four huge television screens hanging on the wall. Leggio, the company's vice president of sales, was sitting in Telanetix's office in New Jersey. As the two talked, there was no noticeable delay in the conversation as the signal traveled thousands of miles. Leggio's image ... [full story]

As a privately held government contractor, General Atomics generally maintains a low profile with its diversified work in industries that include nuclear energy, electromagnetic systems and robotic aircraft. But the San Diego company that made the unmanned Predator spy plane essential for U.S. military operations recently lifted the veil on an internal "skunkworks" it formed to develop new technologies in lasers and optics. From the beginning, one goal was to dramatically improve the imaging and ... [full story]
