A montage of some of the coolest gadgets at one of the happiest hunting grounds for tech-geeks, Computex 2010, that just concluded in neon-vivid Taipei. Have you checked out Part 1 and Part 2? Stay tuned for Part 3!
Gadgets & miscellanea
An exciting find - Kingmax is going to be announcing a whole range of Li-ion batteries for the most common handset manufacturers including Nokia, Sony Ericsson, HTC, Motorola, LG and Samsung. We’re told these products will be available in India and at reduced prices compared to the original batteries from these brands. Good news for everyone looking for a new battery for their beloved cellphones
Antec Skeleton mini
Antec’s Skeleton is something we’ve seen before. What we didn’t see was the Skeleton Mini. Designed for a Mini ITX form factor, the Skeleton Mini shares the design ethos of its bigger brother – an open design. The Mini is pictured on the left, with the full ATX-size Skeleton on the left.
Antec’s Lanboard is their speciality case for gamers, especially those on the go. This is a full tower ATX case, and you can see the two 120mm fans are modular, meaning the bracket is removable to access the components inside. For those using a single HDD, placing it at the bottom means maximum airflow from the two front fans that intake air. Notice the mounting of the liquid cooling section (also Antec) on the top (radiator) and where the 5.25” bays are (reservoir).

Genius (KYE Group) had lots of stuff on display, most of which we’ve never seen in India. Tiny portable gaming stations, loads of mice in different colours, sizes and with varied functions, notebook bags and carry cases and a few rather unique products, like a mouse that you wear like a ring!
Genius design tablets
The white keyboard is a Bluetooth one, the black one is a regular wired model – both are really compact, feedback is also pretty good and usability is better than Apple’s mini keyboard, owing to the larger size.
Agama is a brand created by KYE to represent household appliances while Genius represents computing peripherals and accessories. Here we see an Agama automated vacuum cleaner. It’s actually in motion, a testament to the blurriness of the actual product in the image. It has sensors that allow it to sense corners, drops (it never falls) and when battery juice is running low, it automatically visits the dock/recharging station!
