Samsung MagicStation desktops get revamped

Samsung MagicStation desktops get revamped

In the first photo, we have the MV70 and two other MagicStation desktops that are unknown right now. In the second photo, there are the MX, MZ, and NZ models pictured.

Sure they are more or less only going to be available in Korea, but some of the stuff these machines can do is pretty amazing. The coolest thing is that now all of the MagicStation machines can it the EZ-BLU button on the front, and the machine will scan itself for slowdowns, problems, and other things that either are or could affect system performance, and then they connect to a server to see how to fix it.

Amazingly small Robots from Sandia National Labs

Amazingly small Robots from Sandia National Labs

Just imagine a swarm of robots attacking you, each of them on your own, you could stop with two fingers, but a whole swarm, and you’re done. Well they aren’t quite attack robots, but they are small, less than an ounce in weight and under a quarter-inch cubed in volume.

Is it just me, or do those “treads” look like small rubber bands? Anyways, they are really small and only run off three really small watch batteries. And the whole swarming thing, yeah, that’s how they are supposed to work, but its to accomplish various tasks, not to eat you alive.

Advanced Wireless Solutions Backup Pal

Advanced Wireless Solutions Backup Pal

What does it do? It backs up your cell phones contact list. It doesn’t require anything other than that I assume the phone has to be on, other than that, connect it, hit the backup button, and bam, your done.

You can even restore the contact list with the touch of a button. You’ll notice there is no computer involved anywhere in there, even though you can connect it to a computer if you want.

Rock Band van spotted

Rock Band van spotted

You've probably noticed that our Vincent travels a lot. He gets to go out and have all of the fun while the rest of us sit in our offices and work. I had the pleasure of finding out that it's not all fun and games on the road. I left my hotel this morning at around 10am and on the plane by noon. I got back to Indianapolis around 1, I got home just in time to switch out my clothes for some new ones and make an appearance at a family gathering before hitting the road again.

Where did I head this time? I left on a four hour road trip to Chicago for the opportunity to play Rock Band before it comes out. I got to where I was going at almost 2am, however, I pulled into the wrong hotel and found a little surprise.

Uboatworx CQ-2 two passenger personal submarine

Uboatworx CQ-2 two passenger personal submarine

Two nice things about this submarine, the first is it stays pressurized at 1 atmosphere, or basically what it is on the ground. The second is the fact it doesn’t require fuel, its all electric.

Two bad things are, the 2.5 hour battery life, and the 14 hour charge time. But 2.5 hours in a submarine is probably a rush that is worth the 14 hour wait. There are 4 motors, two for thrust, or forward motion, and one for up and one for down.

Rumor: New Xbox 360 SKUs just in time for holiday season

Rumor: New Xbox 360 SKUs just in time for holiday season

Two new things, the first is a new bundle with Forza 2 and Marvel Ultimate Alliance. The second is a new Xbox 360 Core system.

The new Core system will have HDMI, a 256MB memory card, a wireless controller and 5 Xbox Live arcade games. No word on what price point it will retail at, but I would assume the same one the current Core system is going for.
