If you were thinking of getting one of the 22-inch IZ3D monitors for playing in Stereoscopic 3D, now may be the right time to do that in order to get a 20% discount of the product price (only if ordering trough IZ3D’s webshop!). The only thing you need to do is when checking out to write the following promo code: 91927c7d and you should be all set. And if you ask why IZ3D and not GeForce 3D Vision, the answer is quite simple actually… IZ3D’s display and drivers work on any kind of video card (ATI-based video card for instance) and not only on Nvidia, unlike the 3D Vision driver that requires you to have an Nvidia-based VGA. And of course the 22-inch IZ3D display does not use active shutter glasses and a 120Hz display, but instead relies on dual screens (inside one monitor) with different polarization and passive polarized glasses in order to achieve the Stereoscopic 3D effect. And of course this technology also has its pros and cons, but if you wanted to get one of these and save some money now should be the right time to take advantage of the discount offer.
The normal price of the 22-inch IZ3D Display is 399$, so 20% off is quite good offer!
Something new straight form Japan – a handmade USB Flash Drive Skull Ring. Yes, you’ve heard it right… these are 2GB USB flash drives in the form of a Skull that attaches to your finger just like a normal ring. It might be a bit strange for everyone’s taste, but if you like skulls and such this might be a perfect addition to your collection. Also a great and somewhat unique thing that is also a great gift idea for a true geek…
The chin of the skull is removable, revealing a normal USB connector for using the 2GB flash storage you’ve got available in the ring. You can choose a USB flash drive skull ring from 8 different color variations, these are: Antique Gold, Antique Silver, Black, Matt Black, Pink, Purple, Silver and Turquoise Blue. All are very detailed and you can consider each of the rings to be unique, because it is hand made, although that is also the reason for their quite high price.
These hand made rings with flash memory are available for $156.
Hardcore Computer officially announced the launch of their Reactor PC – the world’s first commercially available high-performance computer with total liquid submersion cooling technology. The Reactor PC has been developed for hardcore computer users such as gamers, graphic artists, audiophiles, industrial designers, engineers, medical imaging technicians and military technologists with the idea to provide top performance and lots of features in a really unique form. With a Reactor PC you can not only get the latest technology such as Tripple SLI with the latest Nvidia GTX 280 video cards, Quad Core Intel CPU, SSD disks combined with a really cool and innovative oil cooling that gives you not only quiet working, but also a highly overclockable computer.
Hardcore Computer submerged all of the heat-producing components – the CPU, motherboard, video card, memory and power supplies – in a custom dielectric fluid they have named Core Coolant, eliminating heat-related computing limitations. Reactor incorporates the benefits of liquid submersion cooling with twin additive and redundant server-class 650Watt power supplies; audiophile-quality Creative Labs X-Fi, EAX, 7.1-channel Dolby digital surround sound embedded on the motherboard; three on-board SATA solid-state drives configured in an ultra-fast RAID 0 array; and two truly hot-swappable external hard drives.
Form following function, Reactor has a distinctive look. Locating the majority of I/O on the top of the case for easy access resulted in the unique Spinal Cord cable management system, another industry first for a desktop system. Also on the case top are optional, dual, diversity Wi-Fi antennas. The system chassis incorporates handles that serve as a means for transporting Reactor. The handles also aid in the removal of the system core, which includes all of the computer’s active components, from the liquid for maintenance or upgrades. Over-clocking enthusiasts will appreciate a CMOS battery and BIOS reset switch located on the lid, inside a push-push access hatch door. Reactor also sports user-selectable internal tank and chassis base lights. The result is a cool and quiet state-of-the-art system that provides full-throttle processing, sustained over-clocking, HD/3D realism with maximum frame rates, an easily upgradable modular design and a rugged custom chassis. The liquid submersion technology also ensures stable, 24/7/365 hardware reliability.
You can get a Reactor PC for as low as $4464, but in order to get the top specs computer you’ll have to prepare $10541. You can pre-order your fully oil cooled PC now and it is expected to ship on 11/19/2008.
