Are you the type who finds that a perfectly silent environment is the only way to go for getting work done? If that environment for you is also lacking in space, the aptly-named Silentium! AIO PC from Deltatronic should be a decent choice.
It should come as no great surprise that breaking into independent game development is no easy task. After all, you're trying to accomplish something which is ordinarily left to massive corporations employing teams of artists, designers, and programmers. You're trying to market a game without the aid of press agents or a PR department. It's going to be a long, hard - and probably expensive - road, but the destination is more than worth it...right?
A few months ago, I covered the Foc.us headset - a nifty little peripheral which uses electricity to jolt awake the user's brain. This in turn confers benefits similar to what you'd get from a cup of coffee, albeit without caffeine jitters (or the inevitable caffeine crash). Sounds pretty cool, right?
It's just passed through the FCC.
While not much about it is known, Hewlett-Packard's use of an Intel processor in its upcoming ultra-cheap tablet computer might make the device very interesting to hackers.
As it turns out, gaming isn't all the Oculus Rift is good for. Even though the peripheral is still in development mode, a user group known as Intuitive Aerial has hooked a few cameras up to a flying drone, and connected that drone to the Rift. Said drone is user-controlled, and basically lets whoever's utilizing it experience flight.
All of us have this one problem in common. Off course it's a problem in varying degrees. Some have a mini one, others have a herculean one. The problem is offensive socks. But how do socks get to be such a problem anyway? Well, the good news is that feet do not naturally have any odor glands.
If you look hard enough, you will find everything you need in nature. From rust proofing, to anti-bacteria to even bullet resistant material, it can all be found in nature. It so happens, as Dr. Nguyen Thi Hoe of Kova Paint Corporation found, that all four properties were in the humble rice husk. The beauty of it is that it's the husk, the part that's discarded once the grain has been removed, not the grain that is used as a staple in Eastern diets.
The California-based company's calling it the 'World's Fastest Hard Drive'. Their hype machine is on full bore, but at least it has some reason for it. Pairing a large flash memory cache with a very high rotational speed, the Enterprise Turbo SSHD's performance is sure to be interesting.
The human body is sensitive to its environment. We have a range within which we feel comfortable - a certain temperature range; a certain illumination range, a certain level of sound, pressure and even humidity. Alter any of this too much or for too long and the body will protest. In a dry environment, like an air-conditioned office, the moisture from our body is extracted to the environment and our skin dries.
We all know that 3D printing, or additive printing as some would call it, is the new in thing. For many of us who have seen the promo videos of the various brands and start ups that are rapidly filling up this space, the idea is both novel as it is borne out of common sense. But it is just the beginning. At the moment the 3D printer is merely an arm that sequentially lays heated plastic in layers.
Fujitsu's high-tech walking stick looks to offer easy monitoring and direction for loved ones. A few additions to its already decent feature set, however, could make it even better.
When is a pet bowl, not just any pet bowl? When it's a BambuBowl by Loving Pets - a pet food bowl made from a lightweight, renewable, recyclable material that you won't have to recycle for a long, long time....
Between carbon dioxide, dust, and sulfur dioxide, the air around us can get pretty polluted. In New York we emit as much as 149,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide in a day. What about dust? We know there's a lot of that too. What about sulfur dioxide, well there's about 60,000 tons of that a year in New York.
We all have dogs that need attention and playtime more than we have time to share. It is unfair to them, and in many ways unhealthy as well. Most dogs can remain healthy, physically and psychologically, if they are allowed to exercise everyday and allowed to run about and play. This is in addition to the daily walks that they must have to facilitate better gastrointestinal health.
Intoxication affects individuals differently. Some people can hold their alcohol better than others. However, on the issue of legality, differentiating states of intoxication is not done by how a person feels. There is a legal standard to determine that and breaching that threshold is grounds for serious legal consequences.
Energy is a case of "water, water everywhere, not a drop to drink." The sun light that is all around us is energy in its purest form, yet we go about stumbling on archaic technologies that use fuels with dirty and polluting byproducts. Until now. The folks at Waka Waka Power decided to tap in to the sun's rays during daylight hours and extract the energy we need to power some of our most common mobile devices. For once, we do not need to go hunting for a socket somewhere just so we can plug in our "mobile" device.
The mouse has been with us for almost three decades. If you're thinking that the time has come to take it to the next level, you're right and that's exactly what Nick Mastandrea thought. Unlike most people who have had a million, million-dollar ideas, Nick decided to do something about it. He got down and designed Mycestro. What is it? Well, Mycestro is little device which you strap on to the intermediate phalange of your index finger - in fact, it's about the size of your intermediate phalange too. It has some pressure sensitive buttons on its side that you can access with your thumb.
If you play games on the PC, you know exactly what time of year it is. Steam's annual Summer Sale kicked off last week, and hundreds of gamers have already spent far more than they should, taking full advantage of the huge quantity of deep discounts. As it turns out, it's not just the deals that keep people buying - there's a lot of psychology to the whole process, as well.
Whoever invented the alarm clock that was designed to jar a person from slumber had an evil streak running through them. But for better or worse, the method of using a ringing alarm clock stuck for quite some time, so much so that even when electronic sounds in midi and wav formats entered the scene, there was still a ringing bell option.
To call the Internet, by its old name almost seems inadequate. The term still infers the old websites and emails and static desktop environments. Data that points to an increasingly connected world is abundant. But what it doesn't tell us is how we manage all that information. At the moment we do it rather clumsily. We keep checking our smartphones to see if we've been mentioned in a tweet or someone has commented on our Facebook wall, or whatever social media we are in tune with.
Though it may look like a gigantic tablet, Hewlett-Packard's Slate21 does not include a built-in battery. The company seems to be trumpeting the device as a power-efficient, if underpowered, home PC.
