Excalibur Wireless News Ticker Keeps You Up To Speed On Weather, Sports Or Any RSS Feed

According to wireless goodness, the Excalibur Wireless News Ticker, which was recently approved by the FCC, lets you stay on top of news and other events via a scrolling text display, not unlike what you’d find at the stock market. Since the Excalibur’s interface and display are pretty basic, all of the setup is done via a PC app which lets you add and customize RSS feeds which are then streamed to the display with an included USB dongle.

There will also be a couple of custom branded versions of the device in conjunction with The Weather Channel and Fox Sports that are designed to focus on weather and sports respectively, though I assume they’ll be able to display regular RSS feeds as well. It’s powered by a set of 4xAA batteries which will hopefully last a while given the ‘no frills’ nature of the Excalibur, and while pricing hasn’t been announced yet, it’s expected to be available in time for the holiday season.
