ASUS Bezel-free Kit Will Get Rid Of Vertical Bezels In A Multi-Display Setup

If you want an expansive view when gaming, you can either go for a huge wide screen display, or hook up multiple displays. The former has its limitation in terms of how wide it can go, while the latter is obviously wider, you will have to put up with interrupting vertical bezels that exist between monitors. It is a tough choice to make, but with the ASUS Bezel-free Kit, we’d say go for the multi-display setup because, this nifty accessory showcased at the just concluded CES will make the annoying bezels magically disappear. OK. It will not ‘delete’ the bezel per se. In fact, the right words to use here would be “creating an illusion of disappearing bezels,” or “optical obfuscation.” Continue reading ASUS Bezel-free Kit Will Get Rid Of Vertical Bezels In A Multi-Display Setup

With Ossia Cota, This AA Battery Will Never Need To Be Recharged, Like Ever

You know how in gun fight scenes in some Hollywood movies, the guns never run out of ammunition? However bad guns are, those scenes portrayed a perfect world where things never run out. But we are not here to talk about guns; we are here to explore another modern day invention that, in real life, always run out: battery. But very soon, the Hollywood’s never-run-out-of-ammunition-gun may apply to AA battery too and we have Ossia to thank. The company’s Cota technology is much like Disney’s wireless charging room, but in a scale one can only dream of.

Sony A8F 4K HDR TV Is Loaded With Tech, Uses Its Screen To Produce Audio

One thing that will never not appeared in a big electronic show like the CES is TV. There are abundance of them on the show floor at CES from companies big and small, but we are all ears for what Sony has to offer with its new A8F 4K HDR OLED TV with Acoustic Surface. It is not immediately clear that the official product name, A8F 4K HDR OLED TV, is also about sound – a department which not many TV has a reason to show off. But A8F has a lot to be proud about because, if it delivers as it has promised, you may very well never need a sound bar at all.

Land Rover Set To Restored The 70-Year-Old Original 4×4 Prototype

Jaguar Land Rover group has an interesting project planned for 2018. The company has found one of the three original pre-production prototypes 4×4 that made their debut at the Amsterdam Motor Show in 1948. The vehicle was apparently bought by someone in the 60s and when it was found, it was in such a dilapidated state that it took a team of experts at Jaguar Land Rover Classic months poring over the archives to determine that it is indeed the long lost vehicle, the vehicle that started it all. As part of the group’s 70th anniversary in 2018, the group will embark on a year-long meticulous restoration progress to bring the 48’ prototype back to its former glory. Continue reading Land Rover Set To Restored The 70-Year-Old Original 4×4 Prototype

The mind-blowing accurate and detailed Boeing 777 jetliner you see up above is indeed made of paper. Continue reading The Details That Went Into This Paper Airplane Will Absolutely Blow Your Mind!

Epic Icicle Formation On Fire Escape Is Freakish, But A Sight To Behold

Under normal circumstances, one will only see icicles formation in epic proportion in very, very cold places (like, you know, Canada?). They can be often be found dangling under tree branches or at the edges of the overhang of a house. In other words, icicles in large number aren’t natural occurrence you get to see often in the in city, especially not in U.S. city of Chicago. Or so we thought. Apparently, last week’s brutal cold that assaulted the U.S. has resulted more than mortal inconvenience; it also saw the city getting the craziest icicle formation ever.

This Year, Sony Wants You To Party With An Upright BoomBox

Party animals, specifically those who love to make a disco out of their home or just about anywhere, you will be glad that Sony has just the right equipment for you. No, it is not a DJ console (but it can do that too). It is what Sony called “high-power home audio systems.” Altogether, there are three models: two “all-in-one box” varieties, MHC-V71D and MHC-V41D, and a “3-box” model MHC-M20D. The objective is clear with these new systems: to produce loud, powerful sounds that fill every corner of the room and hence, the upright boombox design that, with the help of Spread Sound Generator technology, will produce 360-degree LIVE sound and 360-degree psychedelic party lights to boot. Now, that’s a party. Who cares if there’s a party globe or not. Continue reading This Year, Sony Wants You To Party With An Upright BoomBox

Sony’s New Mobile Projector Is Sleek, But At $400, It Could Be A Tad Too Pricey

Lets face it. Watching movie on a smartphone, however big it is, is never a comfortable experience. You’d be missing out details that will otherwise be more visible on large screen like, for example, a TV. Of course, the bigger the TV it is, the better, but not everyone can afford a 120-inch juggernaut. Besides, you won’t be able to lug it around, so it kind makes watching off your smartphone the only option. Well, not if Sony MP-CD1 Mobile Projector can help it. Weighing mere 9.9 ounces (280g), this pocket-size compact mobile projector is capable of throwing a 120-inch size screen on any flat surface from a distance of 3.5 meters (11.5 feet).
