The iPhone 5 is yet to be seen, demoed or even announced by Apple, but this hasn’t stopped a Chinese manufacturer from demoing an iPhone 5 ‘clone’. It’s very likely that the clone is not running iOS and is more likely running Android with a custom iPhone skin on it. As you can see from the picture below there has not been much imagination used, as it looks more like a thinner version of the 3GS than anything else.

And now multiple sources close to Apple’s component suppliers have suggested that the upcoming tablet will feature not one but two cameras: one on the front and other on the back. Largan and Genius have been detailed as the suppliers who have received orders from Apple. The claim seems to be fairly valid as Genius is also the current supplier of the iPhone 4′s camera.

Microsoft’s Xbox 360 Kinect hacks have been plentiful, but here is a very original one that is almost guaranteed to impress. A Japanese coder by the name of Takayuki Fukatsu posted a video showing Kinect’s “optical camouflage” effect that he created with openFrameworks. He didn’t explain how it works but it appears to be a filter that removes his body from the frame in real time and replacing it with the image behind, which would have been taken beforehand. The mismatch of the images near his outlines are a good indication its a before image being replaced over the top of the current one.
