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

The Koubachi Wi-Fi Plant Sensor looks sort of like an upside down, fat-headed golf club: you stick the handle into the soil in a plant pot. It’s loaded with sensors to figure out moisture, sunlight, and surrounding temperature. A Wi-Fi radio connects to your home network and sends the data to Koubachi’s servers, accessed via a native iOS app. It’s priced at about $162. You only need to buy one: just keep moving it from one plant to the next every couple of weeks to collect data for the server.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

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.
