GEAR4's BlackBox Bluetooth speaker is splendid for those with ample room in their abode, but where will you turn for lavish sound when space is an issue? Bose? Pish posh. The newly introduced BlackBox micro (sadly) ditches Bluetooth in exchange for a sole 3.5-millimeter auxiliary port, but it does

Nah, the Black Box Lightshow won't welcome you home, do your laundry or keep you updated on scores around the league, but it will keep your eyes fixated when connected to an audio source. The unit was reportedly based on a design conjured up while Rosendahl was still in college, and it basically em

It's far from the first such device, but we suspect Joy Corp's new MD-3000 unit will also be far from the last GPS / black box combo device we see, especially if incidents like these keep up at the pace they have been. As with similar devices, this one keeps the video rolling at all times, in this

It's been a tick since we've seen a new in-car accident recorder hit the market, but just in case none of the previous flavors caught your eye, Clarion's DRC-3 DriveEye can certainly do the trick.

While GPS units seem to be getting increasingly indistinguishable from one another these days, Korea manufacturer Mercury's latest device looks like it won't have much trouble standing out, with it boasting an integrated black box to record the final moments before an accident (GPS induced or other

Although Sindan Electrical Trading (SET) prefers to draw similarities between its forthcoming RoadBOX Driving Recorder and the infamous black box contraptions that are finding their way into vehicles everywhere, this accident recorder actually relates more closely to the DREC1000 and TS-1L.

Nokia's research and development team have kicked it up a gear with an attractive \"aeon\" concept phone showing up in the R&D section of the company's website. The most prominent design feature of aeon is a touchscreen that stretches over the full surface area of the phone, similar to BenQ-Siemen

You know, it's too bad that BenQ-Siemens' European operations had to go under before it managed to get this slick handset out the door.
