Meet the Noteu: a hackable USB display you can take advantage of to keep up with your notifications, tasks, emails, and metrics. It reminds us of the LaMetric in some ways. You just have to plug it into your USB and use its JAVA application to customize your alerts. The Noteu can be used to show users social updates, notifications, weather alerts, stock updates, and more.
The device has a LCD, a knock sensor, and a beeper. The knock sensor allows you to knock on the top to reset your device. The beeper and LCD help you keep up with new updates. Noteu also has Java APIs and can be hacked to offer you even more options (it is based on an open source platform). Not the most polished notifier we have seen, but it seems to do the job.
