Nexus’ 2.4GHz wireless mouse has five buttons, a DPI of 1,000 up to 16,000 and runs on two AAA batteries with an automatic power save mode. Nothing on pricing and release yet. They are being quiet about that as well.

Radius PC is truly an All-in-One Computer

Posted in Desktop PCs by Conner Flynn on January 16th, 2011

All-in-one computers are everywhere these days. They look nice, but often they sacrifice power and upgradability for that slim design. NextComputing’s Radius computers take a different approach. They don’t look as nice, and they’re portable in the same way that a cinderblock can be carried from place to place. And they can be as powerful as any standard desktop PC.

Basically, they’ve just stuck a monitor and a handle on the tower. The integrated display is a 17″ LCD screen with a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200. There is also an additional clip-on display available, as well as a touchscreen. Some features include quad-core Intel Core i7 and Xeon CPUs, as well as the 3.33GHz hexa-core Intel Core i7 CPU, and AMD’s Phenom II X4 CPUs. It can be equipped with up to 24GB of DDR3 RAM, and up to 9TB worth of non-hot swappable hard drives, or two hot-swappable drives up to 500GB each.

World’s first remote-controlled gaming computer

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on December 9th, 2010

Meet the world’s first remote-controlled gaming computer. It’s built from a Thermaltake case and built on top of a motorized, remote-controlled base. Oh and there’s also a robotic arm. Now that’s what I call a computer.

Sadly it doesn’t shoot lasers, but I’m sure that is just one mod away from happening. This one could be R2-D2′s long lost cousin. I’m pretty sure I saw this thing in a Jawa Sandcrawler.

Winter. It’s the time of year when sitting by the fire not only warms your body, but seems to warm your soul. But what if you don’t have a fireplace? Well, you could make your own fireplace in your computer case.

This LCD screen with a computer behind it may not throw off much heat, but just the sight of it might help on a cold night. It’s better than nothing. And anyway it looks great. This thing is hot. Pun intended. The case was recently on display at the PDXLAN 16.5 event over in Portland.

Forget the iPad, I want a Star Trek PADD

Posted in Sci-Fi by Conner Flynn on May 12th, 2010

Ever since Star Trek The Next Generation, we have dreamed of a tablet computer device that could make all of our dreams come true. Whether watching Netflix, or checking on the status of your crew. Sadly, we still don’t have such a device. Sure there’s the iPad, but what about a functioning computer tablet that looks exactly like those sleek handhelds used in Star Trek?

Sadly it doesn’t exist. But this is a pretty close replica of the actual prop used in the series, a resin prop replica of the DS9 PADD. It’s apparently hand-made by the same artists who created the props for the TV series.

Is Nokia working on a Windows 7 Tablet?

Posted in Nokia by Conner Flynn on April 6th, 2010

Keep in mind that this is still in rumor territory, but according to Ashok Kumar, an analyst at Rodman Renshaw, Nokia is working with suppliers and design manufacturers on a touchscreen tablet. One that might be available as soon as this fall.

We don’t have many details, but we are guessing that it will be powered by Microsoft’s Windows 7. Again, there’s nothing official on this yet, but we wouldn’t mind a Nokia tablet at all. Now that the iPad is out, competitors can offer all of the things that the iPad lacks and we look forward to seeing what they can do.
