In Pictures: Most wild, wacky and wonderful Wi-Fi installations

RF’s most odd, unusual, cool, intriguing network applications for work, fashion, health and play

A clamshell-style baby monitor with high-def camera, from France’s Withings, uses Bluetooth and Wi-Fi to let parents with iPhones or iPads remotely monitor an infant. It’s powered by Broadcoam’s BCM4330 chip, which combines Bluetooth 4.0, single-stream 802.11n, and FM radio. The Withings Smart Baby Monitor has a high-resolution 3-megpixel camera, extra-wide-view lens, nightvision with infrared LEDs, two-way microphone, and a 4x zoom feature. Flip it open, and it pairs via Bluetooth to an iPhone running the free WithBaby app, and via Wi-Fi with your home wireless router. You can even program alarms based on activity/movement, audio levels and temperature/humidity. Price: $300.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
