    Acer’s New Monitor Turns 2D Into 3D Automagically

    Slowly but surely, the world is turning 3D. The Acer HR274H is a 27-inch 1080p 3D display with a trick up its sleeve. Using an internal, chip-based system, the monitor can convert most 2D content into (arguably poor) 3D. This will, in short, pop the moving objects to the front of the scene while making the background look further away. Read More

  • Sportourer Touch Beat HR Watch Review

    The Sportourer Touch Beat is one of the most decent looking exercise watches I have ever seen. This is due not only to its slick styling that makes it look less plasticy, but also because of the cleverly designed combo digital/analog face, as well as the dual use heart rate monitor. Read More

    Well here’s another wacky Japanese gadget that you’ll forget about before the end of the day. I say that not because it’s junk, but because it’s so niche you’ll be like “Oh, wow. Now what am I going to eat for lunch?” It’s the Castrade CG-USC02HD, and, nearest I can tell from Google’s translation robot, it upscales your video game… Read More

Its specs though seem genuine and excellent: 2ms grey-to-grey response time, 4000:1… Read More
