by / March 2, 2005
Sensory Network
The Sensoria EnRoute400 wireless mesh router enables high throughput wireless communication to support video and voice traffic. The router has 64 MB SDRAM and 32 MB of FlashMemory. The EnRoute400 is configured with an 802.11b radio, and wired Ethernet or RS-232 for device connectivity. Additional radios, such as 802.11g, 802.15.4, 802.16 and emerging 4.9 GHz radios for public safety, can be supported via the internal PCMCIA and RS-232 interfaces. There is also a GPS option. The router is configurable to bridge to other wireless networks and wired Internet, and no wired infrastructure is required. Voice over IP, real-time video and location-aware applications joined with multicast communication provides simultaneous voice, video and data communication for applications that require interconnectivity anywhere.

Printers Galore
Brother's HL-2040 and HL-2070N offer print speeds of up to 20 pages per minute and print quality of up to 2400 x 600 dpi resolution. The printer is Windows- and Mac-compatible, and features a 250-sheet input paper capacity, as well as USB 2.0 full-speed and parallel interfaces as standard. The HL-2040 also sports a two-tone gray color scheme and 8 MB memory capacity. A toner-saver feature is also available. The printer is network-ready with the optional 10/100 BaseTX External Print Server.

Minimalist PC
The Modular PC measures 3 x 5 x 0.75 inches and weighs approximately 9.1 ounces. The power supply, display and I/O connectors have been removed so the unit is not much larger than a deck of cards. The CPU contains the processor, memory, data and applications. Inside the Modular PC are a 1 GHz processor, 512 RAM and a 20 GB hard drive (upgradable to 30 GB). The Modular PC runs Windows XP Professional.

Storage a Go Go
I/OMagic's GigaBank 4.0 is a portable storage device with up to 40 GB of storage space in a 2 x 0.5 x 2.5-inch unit. It lets users store important files, back up a computer, store MP3s or transfer files from one computer to another. The device's speed ranges from 3 Mbps to 6 Mbps, with an average speed of 4.5 Mbps. Powered through the USB 2.0 plug -- which can be tucked into the enclosure when not in use -- the GigaBank requires no batteries or adapters, and is ultralightweight. A carrying case is included.
