We, regular visitors if the technology blogosphere (both Spanish as well as Anglo-Saxons), have to admit that we are sometimes bored or saturated by the repetition of issues, although we have passion for all these topics. Any news on Google or Apple, even the most appalling, is repeated in thousands of blogs. On some gadgets, we are “hyper-informed” in an exaggerated manner. Does anybody not know the smallest detail of the latest iPhone?
It is interesting to see how technology finds application in the different areas of life, including all kind of instruments helping us at our work, and which are not only focused exclusively in leisure or communications. Probably this is the reason why the blog Clipset, at which we discovered a totally different gadget, was like a breeze of fresh air. What we discovered is a sewing machine: the Quatro 6000D.
On the website of the manufacturer, Brother, and coinciding with its 100th anniversary, they are promoting this product in a more than interesting way: with a list of not less than one hundred new features or improvements. Surprisingly enough –remember we are talking of a sewing machine- at least 9 of these new features or improvements are related with software (they mention the 3 USB ports of the Quatro 6000D) and 15 of them are related to the LCD display.
Yes! The most relevant point of this machine is the tactile LED display, from which the user may have access to all the functions of the sewing machine. For example, the display shows us the exact status of our work thanks to a small webcam located over the needle. Among other points, as is explained at Clipset, the Quatro 6000D allows users to upload their designs in JPF format to be later embroidered.
We have found this news at the North American blog Engadget.
