We look at SanDisk’s first PMP, the Sansa View in this episode. The device has a 4-inch widescreen 640x480 display, and 8 GB embedded flash memory which provides for about 16 full-length movies. Even better, it has a full-size SD slot so you can add another 8 GB of memory to the unit. It’s also extremely thin, and feels great in the hand. It gets about 4 hours of video playback, and has a removeable battery, allowing you to add a higher power battery if you like. Available in March for $299 USD.

Casio gives us a look at their rugged GzOne cell phone. It’s Casio’s first cell phone launched, and it’s water and shock-resistant, as well as being scratch proof and dust proof. Think of it as the phone version of an extreme sports competitor. It has so much built-in protection, that it’s going to be a challenge to break the phone. In fact, they even prove how well the phone performs by ducking it in a fishtank. Available now from Verizon starting at $299.

We met up with the Lensbaby crew, where we got a look at the new Lensbaby 3G. If you are a digital SLR enthusiast and haven’t heard, the Lensbaby product is a selective focus SLR camera lens that allows you to take images with a focused sharp area that is surrounded by a stylistic blur. We have seen quite a few Lensbaby shots, and they really are quite unique and interesting. The Lensbaby 3G is available now for $270, which for an SLR lens, is pretty much a steal.

We talk with Mike Hullet of OmegaSatter, the company that makes the MonsterPod. The MonsterPod is a tripod without legs, great for situations where you don’t have a stable place for a tripod. It can be attached to just about any surface. It has a visco-elastic, putty-like polymet base, so you can mount it to things like trees, rocks, brick, or anything you can find. Then you connect your camera to it, and you can take your image in just about any situation. You can pick one up for $34.99 USD.

Planet82, the same people that brought us the Accufat Scanner, gives us a glimpse at something a bit more meaning ful in this clip - their SMPD Low Light Camera technology. Focusing on safety and security, these chips are able to record things that are happening, even in the most extreme of low light situations. The advantage of this over standard night vision is the fact that it’s so sensitive that it doesn’t need to send out any extra IR rays to generate a signal. Look for this to be included in security cameras and automobiles by the end of 2007, followed by consumer products like cell phones and digital cameras next year.

Econolite is one of the leading manufacturers of traffic light technology. Frank Provenzono of Econolite chats with us about the technologies that drivers normally take for granted, and tells us all about how traffic lights work and some of the more advanced things that traffic lights can do based on different traffic patterns. It all comes down to some pretty interesting stuff, as Frank helps detail exactly what technologies are in play at a busy intersection, for example.

We stopped by to chat with HD DVD Association representative David Carlson. Dave gives us a quick glimpse into the format, and the benefits it provides over standard definition DVD (looks a lot better), as well as the Blu-Ray format (less expensive for consumers to adopt.) He also goes into some of the more interactive features of HD DVD, such as navigating menus and settings while the movie is playing. For the full scoop, check the video.

has just released details on their TuneStudio for iPod. This thing is fairly amazing. It’s a portable mixer that records directly to an iPod, and connects to a computer as well. If you are a DJ, or even a podcaster, this thing is awesome. Imagine having four inputs all recording directly into your iPod for immediate playback - even better, throw in a computer, and that gives you an extra output to work with, and it’s program independent. It works with both Macs and PCs, and will run for $179 when it launches in Summer 2007.
