Check out the Origami – most of the time, first time parents find that going out with a little baby in tow is not an easy task at all, as one needs to figure out all the possible eventualities, and bring along enough provisions. Well, setting up a standard stroller could prove challenging, especially when you are already carrying a couple of bags across your shoulders. Well, the Origami might be able to solve whatever problems you have in terms of being too bulky – as it is the first power folding stroller of its kind in the world.
4 moms has developed this particular power-folding stroller, where all it takes is a single touch of the button to fold itself. It is also self-charging for that added bit of independence, since generators located in the rear wheels will juice up the Origami whenever you start to walk – or in the case of a stroller, one would naturally stroll. There are also daytime running lights which ensure you and your baby will be able to see what’s going on ahead, as the pathway lights that are located under the stroller will turn on automatically in low-light conditions. Embedded sensors will know whether a child is in the seat, so that it won’t fold itself by accident. All details from the thermometer, speedometer, odometer, tripometer and lifetime tripometer will be displayed on the LCD dashboard. The asking price is definitely not cheap though at $849.99 a pop.
Google unveiled on Wednesday a Russian version of the popular Street View service that features panoramic views of Moscow and St.Petersburg streets, Google’s product manager, Boris Khvostichenko, said.
The Russian Street View contains panoramic pictures of Moscow and St.Petersburg and several photographs of architectural monuments in Kazan, the capital of Russia’s Republic of Tatarstan.
Google is planning to create full photo coverage of Russian streets but has not specify the exact dates, Khvostichenko said, adding that the company is unlikely to retake photos if there are changes in the surroundings in the future.
It is more efficient for Google to make new photos of the cities from time to time instead of retaking separate photos of the streets, Khvostichenko said.
Google smudges people’s faces and car registration numbers on the photos because the laws in many countries forbid publishing of pictures that may to some extent intrude on individual privacy.

It’s never a good sign when the first time you think about an MMO in years is when you hear about its impending demise. No doubt the online spin-off of Hideo Kojima’s celebrated franchise has a vibrant and passionate community. I wouldn’t know, I haven’t played it. But surviving for a full four years in what has for a long time been the most one-sided genre in videogames is to be commended, as is a graceful exit.
Konami will be pulling the plug June 12th, with the MGO Online shop closing March 21st. Content from the store will be offered free of charge from April 24th onward, but will also bar the creation of new accounts. If it helps, think of it as development resources diverted towards the inevitable Metal Gear Solid 5.

This unconventional looking typographic clock is a creation of Biegert & Funk – straight from Germany
QlockTwo tells the time by illuminating words with LEDs. The clock is fitted with light sensor for automatic adjustment to ambient light. The magnetic front part can be replaced without any visible attachments so you have plenty of color choices to suite your mood.
QLOCKTWO makes you pause and allows a different view of time. The typographic front combines the moment with the written word and makes it a statement. „It is half past eight.“
This clock forms a perfect square and seems to hover freely at the wall. A matrix with symmetrically arranged characters constitutes another square in the interior. Some of these characters shine in pure white to form words that describe time.
QLOCKTWO is available in several languages, you only need the appropriate front panel.
All colours are each available in german, english, french, italian, dutch, russian, danish, swedish, arabic, swiss german and spanish.
