Video ipod.

Daring Fireball weighs in on the product announcements. No firewire on the iPod is kind of a bummer, but frontrow does definitely make it look like we're in for some kind of TV connectivity, not from the ipod, which will only play 320x240, but from the computer itself. By all accounts, the small video looks awesome on the ipod- and that's the screen it's intended for once it's been formatted, the tv connectivity is more for photos. The ipod is the delivery device in this case, and video podcasting seems to be the big use for it... downloading daily shows and watching them on the subway. I've already noticed that the Cinema Minema podcasts I'm subscribed to in iTunes have already farmed out some video clips to my library. I expect HD connectivity from Macs to televisions to be coming next. The Front Row interface they've got in the new iMac begs it. And the airport express is too good a precedent not to expect some wireless video in the future.

The first Videoclip-sampleplayer with Midi

Found Via our sister-site Music Thing (who in turn got it off Module Records), the MFB VJ is a mini video sampler that holds 28 four-second video clips, with a crossfader and some onboard effects.

3D Monitor

From FutureFeeder:
LightSpace claims its DepthCube is the world's first solid-state volumetric 3D display capable of 3-dimensional projections without any headgear or moving parts. The display runs on a stack of 20 liquid crystal shutters synchronized with a video projector (50Hz refresh rate) all packed in a TV set box circa 1980.
