Gifts, Contests, Easter Eggs A few days ago we published a review of the Linux-based Neuros OSD recorder and player. Now, you can win one of these devices! All you have to do is research on the product to find out its current capabilities, and then comment below with suggestions on how to make it better and with ideas for new applications and hacks. The Neuros Technology guys will pick the best idea in 3 days time and we will provide them with the winner's email address so they can send him/her a free Neuros OSD device (that info won't be used for other purposes). If you wish to comment but not to participate in the competition, please clearly state so on your comments. Update: The winner is FunkyELF for this post. Congrats!

Member since:

I've long thought being able to edit dvds would be cool.

My thought would be that you could have a smallish file which would describe a number of edits which would be made real time by the device. The device could remove certain scenes (i.e. Jar Jar) or perhaps mix in deleted scenes or perhaps even insert a random scene from some other dvd or youtube.

The idea being that you could swap these "edits" via the internet. Ideally it could be a sort of viral marketing thing.

I don't know the legal situation with such an item would be, but I wonder whether it might be a legal way to distribute edits as opposed to what must be done now.
