Make a video your avatar

Monday, February 12, 2007

Add to: Del.icio.us | Digg | Google | Reddit
Have you observed creative and funny avatars on profiles when you visit some forums? Well, you might know they are of the GIF format. GIFs, unlike JPG(the usual picture format) can be made animated with recurring picture movements.

While there exist a lot of softwares to convert a bunch of JPG pictures together into a GIF, I found this new website that helps you to make a GIF from a video.

Now, you have to make a four-second odd video(in WMV format), upload it and click on 'Make my GIF'. And the website converts your video to a GIF which you can as your avatar elsewhere.

Here is a good one, I found at the website.Now you go, make yours...!

Weird Music T-Shirt

Saturday, February 10, 2007

Add to: Del.icio.us | Digg | Google | Reddit

What you wear to a party is one question to which there are no satisfying answers. I do not party much, but I have quite a few friends who are simply party-animals. I came across a T-Shirt just for such kind of people.

Before you start thinking what this has got to do with in a technology blog, let me tell you that this one is quite weird. It is called a T-qualiser..And, this T-shirt works on a battery. It has a equaliser panel(which we normally see on music players!), and when on a party, this equaliser moves in tune to the song and beats. I am sure that if you wear this to a party, getting a date is not too difficult ;-)

Video to Photo conversion

Thursday, February 08, 2007

Add to: Del.icio.us | Digg | Google | Reddit
Using Windows, it is easy to make a movie out of a bunch of photos. But, there is no readymade solution to do the reverse, that is, to cut out a single photo out of a video. In fact, I tried doing it using conventional tools like printscreen. Printscreen, for some good reason, does not provide the actual image of the screen, while running a movie. You simply get a dark blank image in the place of the movie.

I guess, for such simple tasks, it makes no sense to go for priced products. You can very well try out free download softwares available. For this particular task, I tried using this software called SC Video Cut and Split

This one allows you to zoom into the part of the movie you require, then cut that particular portion of the movie. Infact, this point can be chosen to either make a single photo or use that point as a split point to make two parts of the single movie. I do not think it is necessary to explain the usage as the buttons are quite intuitive. You may either download this or look for other similar tools at freedownloadscenter.com.

Dishmaker: Don't wash your dish next time

Monday, February 05, 2007

Add to: Del.icio.us | Digg | Google | Reddit
If you think your kitchen is small and you don't have enough space to take in all the dishes, then here is a nice way out. Dishmaker helps you to convert your acrylic plates into dishes and vice versa. The next model should enable you to wash dishes too. That should be good fun!

PS: Regarding my first statement don't ask me if there is no space for dishes, where will you keep the dishmaker. I don't have an answer to that :D

Sunlight intenstiy on your laptop

Sunday, February 04, 2007

Add to: Del.icio.us | Digg | Google | Reddit
You can now see the intensity of your sun (or more simply put, intensity based on the time of the day it is!) on your laptop. Not rocket science, but then, it looked interesting, so I thought I should put it up here on my blog.

Actually, it is not just on the laptop. Depending on the time of the day, a bulb increases its intensity of light, peaking in the noon and dimming away at the end of the day. Similarly, you can see the same on your laptop or on your mobile phone.

Audiodizer - free RSS to MP3 conversion

Saturday, February 03, 2007

Add to: Del.icio.us | Digg | Google | Reddit
Sometime back, I had posted about a RSS to MP3 service, though for a price. Thanks to a comment by one of our readers here,I came to know about another free service called Audiodizer.

I tried out the site. Well, I find that the service offered is not anything different from what Odiogo has offered. The voice quality too looks good enough for a free service; i.e. it is also not very robotic, and is very much comprehendable.

If you were looking for a free service, I would recommend this to you. Keep sending comments with your tech info everyone of you. It will greatly help my blog :)
