Talk about multitasking. The Z-Agon Video Cube is perfect for people who love to channel surf and make optimum use of picture-in-picture, because it boasts not one, not two, but six full-color screens measuring 2.5-inches each. The square PMP doesn’t appear to have any memory of its own, but it’ll catch those multimedia streams via WiFi. What this means is that you can’t really control anything on the Video Cube itself, and you’ve got to wonder where you’d plug in your headphones (maybe you need six sets). That’s why it’s still a prototype: they’re ironing out the kinks and waiting for your seed money. Product page here.
There are already sympathy suits out there for men who want to know what it’s like to be pregnant, so why not invent a suit that lets everyone know what it’s like to be old? It’s not quite like the fat suit Tom Cruise wore in Tropic Thunder, but someone at MIT was thinking that the AGNES suit could give us an understanding of what its like to be, well, old.
