AC Ryan Veolo
Another entry in AC Ryan’s line of media streaming devices, the Veolo uses the Android 2.2 Froyo platform, bringing an enhanced experience for apps on a TV, including casual games and social media.
The built-in Web browser and Java support so it can view Flash websites and stream video. Full HD content can be viewed over Gigabit wired LAN or 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi. It also features an ARM Cortex A9 1GHz processor and onboard 512Mb DDR3 RAM.
LG 47" LCD TV
LG Display’s latest a 47" Full HD LCD TV has an ultra-slim design highlighted by an minimal 8.5mm bezel. To reduce the quantity of LED bulbs used, LG developed its own backlight technology in which LED lamps are attached vertically to a single side of the panel.
Despite its large size, the 47" LCD panel uses only 28W, less than the power consumption of most 20" PC monitors which use between 30-50W. The panel also delivers 400Nits of brightness suitable for HD TVs through a three-film structure which helps focus and diffuse light, together with local dimming technology and energy efficient LED bulbs.
Porsche Bike RS
Showing that there’s more to Porsche than fast cars, the company is now intent on telling us it can do… fast pushbikes.
Being a Porsche the Bike RS is every bit the premium product you would expect, and you’re unlikely to see it on the side of a mountain any time soon. Still, it’s got 29" wheels, lightweight 9kg carbon frame (we have a laptop that’s heavier than that), 20 gears, hydraulic disk brakes and a unique identifier code should it get nicked on you.
Our favourite piece of advice on the website is a warning that it hasn’t yet been approved for use on public streets. As with many things Porsche, a look-but-don’t-touch policy may be in effect.
