The World’s Smallest Phone Is so Tiny You Might Lose It

Published

on

While big screen smartphones are currently the norm, contrasting that is the tiny t1 from Zanco, which is officially the world’s smallest mobile phone.

Weighing lighter than a coin and simply smaller than the size of your thumb, the tiny t1 essentially serves as an ideal backup, emergency phone or companion when traveling light.

Compatible with nano SIM cards and operating on the 2G network, the device can be used to talk and text with its built-in speaker, microphone and fully functioning keyboard. Other key features are its 12.5mm OLED screen and a mirco USB charging port that provides battery for up to three days or 180 minutes of talk time.

For a further look and additional details on the Zanco tiny t1, be sure to read further details (and possibly even back the project) on Kickstarter.

PUMA Unveils Game-Changing Fit Intelligence Technology

Published

on

PUMA today announced its latest footwear technology. Dubbed Fit Intelligence (Fi), it is the successor to AutoDisc, which launched just two years prior.

According to the German sportswear giant Fi “is designed to automate, fine tune, and adjust performance fit for PUMA footwear.”

With Nike building on its auto-lacing technology with the Adapt BB and adidas forging ahead with its accelerated footwear production at its SPEEDFACTORY locations, PUMA looks to bring its own, game-changing technology to market.

The first Fi footwear to launch is a running shoe that employs a micromotor that powers a cable lacing system. Simply gesturing up or down on the forefoot Fi module tightens or loosens the lacing system. Additionally, it comes with a smart sensing capability that adapts to the shape of the foot of each wearer.

Using an app, sneakerheads can monitor, adjust, and fine tune their Fi-equipped footwear.

“We have created a product that speaks to the future of sport which is life in motion. It’s fast and changing all the time,” said Charles Johnson, PUMA’s Global Director of Innovation.

Fi is the latest step in PUMA’s continued attempt to push the boundaries of performance and lifestyle product. In 1968 PUMA debuted the first laceless sports shoe with Velcro™ straps and followed that up in 1991 with the first cable closure, seen on the PUMA Disc.
