Robots help us accomplish many complex tasks, from diffusing bombs to assembling automobiles. Now, with the open source Egg-Bot, we can add “drawing on spherical surfaces” to that list. Yes that IS a complex task…
If somehow you were able to choke up the FirePro V8800 and its 2GB of graphics buffer — traveling across an autobahn-wide 147.2GBps interface, here’s the card for you. ATI has just announced the V9800, which doubles its predecessor’s memory allowance to a mighty 4GB of GDDR5, but otherwise looks an almost identical beast. It maintains the 1,600 stream processor count of the V8800 and makes some small advances in performance and power efficiency, but on the whole it’s the same card, just strapped up with more buffer muscle. We shouldn’t neglect the new array of six mini DisplayPorts — the retail package will include six DVI adapters, just alittle bit overkill but oh well. Well, at $2,499, the V9800 is a whole thousand dollars pricier than the V8800, just sayin, I wouldn’t do it..
Exited to see whats inside this squared little ipod? Well here it is!
The 6th-gen device weighs in at 67 percent of the volume of its precursor, with a slightly thicker body and that integrated clip on its back. Its 240- x 240-pixel display offers a 220ppi density, which, within Apple’s ranks, is bettered only by the Retina Display on the fourth generation iPhone and iPod touch devices. Regrettably, just as with those two machines, the 2010 nano has its front glass, LCD and touchscreen assembly fused together. One handy bit of news here is the battery size, which at 105mAh is what you might call paltry, but still doubles the old shuffles 51mAh. All in all, the conclusion from this dissection is that the new device feels more like a shuffle with a screen than a miniaturized nano, which, when you look at the form factor, makes all sorts of sense.
If your game console accessories and games are creating piles of clutter in your room, then it might be time to grab something like the Level Up storage towers. They look awesome and there’s one for each major console. The 360, the ps3, and the wii. No details about the pricing, but the towers should be available in major retail stores soon. Ill definately grab one, a few neon mods and building in the wii, it’s full of win!
