Porn Detection Stick Hunts for Dirty Pics


If you thought your “fun” folder was well hidden among work projects, think again. The anti-porn powers of the world have united their forces to create a dreadful tool called the Porn Detection Stick.

If your life partner is really curious about how you spend your lonely nights, when she’s not around, all she has to do is stick this puppy into your computer’s USB port and it will start the hunt for any porn or nude photos you might have stashed away.

How does the Porn Detection Stick do all this, you ask? It uses special algorithms to analyze human skin tones, body part separation, curvatures and face detection to select porn related imagery. This baby can scan over 70,000 images in an hour and a half, with a false positive result of only .0006%.


Soviet USB Stick


Actually, a more appropriate term would be USB brick. With USB sticks getting smaller every day, Russians thought they’d swim against the current and create a giant memory stick.

Featuring a giant wooden case, an on/off switch, a cooling fan, and, of course, a USB drive, the Soviet USB drive is able to store up to 4 Gb of data , and no, it’s not USB 3. But it does rival a vacuum cleaner, as far as noise is concerned.

Sony Transfer Jet Memory Stick Launched in Japan


Sony first talked about Transfer Jet, the technology that’s supposed to make Bluetooth look slow and boring, back in 2008 and they included it in their speech at CES 2010.

Sony’s revolutionary data transfer technology will allow users of two compatible devices to share files when they are held close together, touching each other if possible. I know, so far it doesn’t sound like a breakthrough, but the Japanese giant says Transfer Jet is 187 times faster than Bluetooth.

While the now common Bluetooth allows file transfer at a speed of up to 3 Mb, Transfer Jet devices share data at a speed of 560 Mb. Sony has just launched an 8 Gb Transfer Jet Memory Stick, in Japan, and 16 Gb and 32 Gb versions will follow shortly. Though many people claim Transfer Jet is unnecessary at this point, the ever-increasing size of media files these days is sure to put Sony’s technology to good use.
