A Bread Basket to Charge Your Devices

Bread is a great way to charge up one's body, what with its consisting mainly of carbohydrates. And now that most staple of foods can also charge your devices-- or rather the basket holding it can, with the Sister Schubert's Basket of Warmth.

Sister Schubert's is a US-based producer of baked goods, and its Basket of Warmth has been released just in time for the nation's biggest holiday, Thanksgiving. As the company puts it, the Basket of Warmth can make a holiday table centrepiece, feeding guests with warm carbs while ensuring devices are kept charged through 5 USB ports. It even has a space in the bottom where charging devices can be tucked away for storage.

The company also says the basket "uses the very electronic devices that create distractions at dinnertime to keep freshly baked Sister Schubert's dinner rolls warm,” but the details behind such a mechanism are hazy at best. Either way, Sister Schubert's insists "the Basket of Warmth is a reminder to all of us how important it is to disconnect, in order to reconnect with the ones we love. And there is no better time to bring that message to life than the holiday season, starting with Thanksgiving Day when families far and wide gather around the table."

Tobii Intros Next-Gen Eye Tracker

Eye tracking specialist Tobii announces a 2nd generation PC gaming peripheral-- the Tobii Eye Tracker 4C, an update on the previous Eye X model adding simultaneous head tracking.

The result, the company says, is greater levels of control, as the accessory adds an input modality to complement more traditional controllers. Thus customers can pair eye tracking with mouse and keyboard or gamepad controls for a more immersive experience, using their eyes to mimic actions such as looking for cover or aiming at a target.

Tobii claims the upgrade has five "key advancements"-- the aforementioned head tracking, a built-in "EyeChip" reducing CPU load and power consumption from the host PC, smaller and less bright illuminators, an integrated USB 2.0 cord and improved eye tracking quality.
