Fab 5 Tech v.3

This is the third installment of five emerging technologies that have caught my interest recently. The list will contain a combination of technologies that can potentially impact the classroom, IT infrastructure, and gadgets we use everyday.

Perceptive Pixel – They claim to be the first multi-touch desktop display. Their 82″ LCD multi-touch display is quite impressive. You will see these displays used by CNN and ESPN in their shows.

LG Smart Scan Mouse – Is it a mouse with a scanner, or scanner that is a mouse? LG has reinvented the mouse with a built in scanner. Innovative tool for quick scanning purposes.

Toshiba Ultrabook – A sleek competitor to the Lenovo IdeaPad. It boosts i7 series chips with 6GB of RAM, that weighs 2.5 lbs and is only 0.6 inches thick. It is loaded for a ultra portable device. It is looking to sell for $1000…coming in November.

Mangahigh.com – Manga High has been around, but recently have made their product completely free for educators to use in their classroom. Manga High is fun game-based mathematics software that is adaptive and standards-based content. Great for elementary and middle school students.

Knovio – A new web 2.0 tool that teachers can use with students to create animated presentations with matching recorded video. Three simple steps: 1. upload the presentation 2. record the video 3. share it!
