In pictures: Computex Taipei 2008

The highs and lows of Asia's biggest tech show

Computex, which took place this week, is Asia's largest information technology trade show. We prowled the hundred of exhibits to find some of the best innovations on display.

LED Lamp

This is an LED lamp. They're not terribly new but we thought it looked quite cool. You adjust the brightness by sliding your finger around a touch control at the bottom. We're told the lamp will burn for 10,000 hours, versus 1,000 for a standard light bulb, and we're also told they're more environmentally friendly. This one from Lumen Arte is on sale now for about $120 (£60).

Wall PC

These PCs from JSP-Tech Enterprise look a bit like giant iPods and come in a range of bright colours. It's designed to hang on the wall in the living room or kitchen, or in a cafe or other public place. Based on a Mini-ITX Intel motherboard, it can be used to serve up music and video or to surf the web with a wireless keyboard. It comes with or without a small screen on the front and can also be hooked up to a TV or computer monitor. Pricing wasn't available.
