The good folks over at Spark Fun Electronics have a great input device that is a mate for their popular PSP 24-bit color LCD. This 4.3-inch 4-wire resistive analog touch screen is even prepped with adhesive for direct attachment to the PSP LCD. Be forewarned, you will have to develop (or locate) software for enabling a user interface with this screen add-on. The touch screen retails for $23.95, while the PSP LCD sells for $69.95. Now, if only these products had been available when I wrote, PSP Hacks, Mods, and Expansions (McGraw-Hill, 2006), then I mightve sold more copies. Nah!
You know how much we here at PopSci HQ love animal-related live web cams— well, I spotted another one today that takes the herds of drinking wildebeests we couldn't stop watching last fall and raises them an adorable newborn symbol of our nation. That's right, a spiky-haired baby bald eagle recently hatched in California's Santa Cruz Island National Park, and the good folks at the Nature Conservancy have a 24-hour streaming nest cam to monitor the proceedings. Bets on how long it takes for Stephen Colbert to pick this up? —John Mahoney
