This Giant Bed is a Tourist Attraction From Shakespeare's Day

  This Giant Bed is a Tourist Attraction From Shakespeare's Day A sprawling bed built to bring tourists to Ware, England is still turning heads today.In 1590 or so, during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I, an inn in Ware, Hertfordshire, England, had a giant bed constructed to distinguish themselves from other inns in the area. Designed to attract travelers on their way from London to Cambridge or Walsingham, this behemoth bed features nearly 118 square feet of sleeping space. It was once claimed that 26 butchers and their wives slept in the bed overnight on a dare.

Sony has unveiled its latest large E Ink tablet , the DPT-RP1 as the successor to its DPT-S1. This hefty 13.3-inch E Ink display toting touchscreen tablet could help you get rid of paper once and for all.

In the time between Sony ’s original DPT-S1 and now, the company has also picked up some competition in the form of the reMarkable, a similar giant E Ink tablet that was announced last year that also aims to replace paper with a giant E Ink display.

The tablet’s E Ink display means it’ll use very little battery power so you can keep using it, despite the large screen, without worrying about running out of power.

The new version of the smart slate offers a higher resolution display of 1,650 x 2,220 - a big step up from the older 1,200 x 1,600 of the previous model. 

The Sony DPT-RP1 comes with a stylus pen which magnetically clips to the side of the tablet. That should make annotating PDF documents super simple. There’s even a dedicated Digital Paper App which specialises in converting webpages and documents in PDF files for easy use on the tablet. And since the entire tablet is about the thickness of 30 sheets of paper, it should help make carrying around paper weight a thing of the past.

All this is aimed at the professional who otherwise is stuck using paper. The result is a high-end device with a price to match at 80,000 yen which is about £580. It’ll be on sale in June initially in Japan but here’s hoping it’s popularity helps it spread internationally soon.

Sony hopes its full-frame A9 makes pros forget about DSLRs .
Sony held an event in New York City today, where it unveiled its new flagship full-frame camera, the A9. Video-wise, the A9 can shoot 4K (3,840 x 2,160) with full-frame capture and 1080p at up to 120fps, in case you're looking to record slow-motion videos. The body itself resembles a number of Sony's latest Alpha shooters, such as the A7S II, A7R II and A7 II. Its looks are so similar to these that a few people at the launch event tried to snatch my A7 II thinking it was the A9. There are three physical dials on the top of the camera (exposure, scene and shooting mode), as well as two SD card slots and an Ethernet port.
