Microsoft said to buy Surface Pro 3 stylus maker N-Trig

If you thought Microsoft's adoption of N-Trig active digitizer technology in the latest Surface Pro 3 was a one time diversion, this latest rumor would perhaps banish that theory. Microsoft has reportedly fully acquired the Israel-based company, after gaining a 6 percent ownership through an investment back in 2009. Redmond is said to have spent at least $200 million on this purchase, which hints that Microsoft has plans to capitalize on the tech, probably for future iterations of its tablets and maybe even for new types of devices.

Whiteboard sticker turns your laptop lid into a scratchpad

Whiteboard sticker turns your laptop lid into a scratchpad

If your laptop has a touchscreen and you feel the impromptu need to scribble out notes, all you need is a stylus. If it doesn't have a touchscreen, you can turn to your tablet, and if you don't have a tablet, you can turn to your smartphone (and, of course, there are things like Wacom slates). None of those sound appealing? You can go the old-school route, but who wants to carry about paper pads and pens? Enter the whiteboard laptop sticker.

HP tricks out tablet brood with WiGig and keyboard docks, more

HP's tablet ambitions don't end with the Pro Slate 8 and 12 and their ultrasonic stylus, with a clutch of new Android and Windows 8 slates unveiled with features like ruggedized casings, 2-in-1 docks, and more. Most curious of the bunch is likely the HP Elite x2 1011 G1, an 11.6-inch Windows 8.1 tablet with baked-in LTE, an optional Wacom stylus, and a WiGig docking station; it runs one of Intel's new Core M processors, and has an 11.6-inch touchscreen running at up to 1920 x 1080 resolution.

Joining Toshiba's new products at CES 2015 is the 2-in-1 Portege Z20t, a pen-toting tablet that transforms into an ultrabook with the use of a detachable keyboard component. The entire system is promised to be a mixture of sleek and lightweight while offering precise input via Wacom technologies and some features not entirely common on systems like this, such as a keyboard that is resistant to accidental spills. Despite its small size, this is no toy -- the system covers all the bases, and comes with a price tag to match.

HP expands display roster, includes “virtual reality” monitor

HP expands display roster, includes “virtual reality” monitor

Manufacturers announcing new hardware during this part of the year isn't really new, but HP is making a strange play by almost subtly including a rather unique, if not odd, computer monitor into the mix. Together with a new batch of flat 4K and 5K monitors and a handful of curved screens, HP is announcing the Zvr Virtual Reality Display. This rather imposing contraption combines many technologies, including, of course, virtual reality, in order to reduce the barrier between the physical and the digital.

This Smart Desk concept is the Dell you actually want

Dell has cooked up a huge touchscreen "Smart Desk" concept for Dell World this week, its vision of what the digital workspace of the future will look like. Focusing on the sort of tools that digital artists, graphic designers, engineers, analysts, and anyone else wanting to dip their hands into their data, the broad LCD multitouch screen covers the desk like a 21st century blotter, and is paired with a second, equally sizable display, such as Dell's own UltraSharp 27, a 5K display which the company says will ship in December.

NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet DirectStylus 2 Review

NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet DirectStylus 2 Review

With all its gaming prowess, you could quite forget that the NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet has a second personality. Taking the clever Tegra-accelerated stylus technology of NVIDIA’s Note 7, and supercharging it with more sensitivity, less latency, and custom-created apps to show it off at its best, the DirectStylus 2 system promises the best of a digital pen with neither cost nor complexity in the way of compromises. We thought it was worthy of some time by itself in the spotlight.
