Google developed a high-tech whiteboard that costs $4,999 and is now available to purchase. While that seems a bit pricey, it is a much more affordable solution compared to Microsoft's competing Surface Hub, which starts at $8.999 and goes up from there, depending on the size and configuration. In this case, Google's Jamboard measures 55 inches and comes with a pair or styluses, and eraser, and a wall mount. What makes Jamboard unique from a regular whiteboard is the technology inside. It is described as a cloud-based collaborative whiteboard, which allows teams in different parts of the world... Read more...
Amazon has been in the news a lot recently, mainly for its popular Alexa AI that powers its Echo family of products. The company last week announced the Echo Show, which features a 7-inch display, and today the company has revealed a partnership with Element to produce 4K Smart TVs. Element isn’t a brand that you would normally associate with high-end picture quality or plentiful features — it’s a brand that you would typically find at retail stores like Walmart or Target with budget pricing. However, Amazon isn’t letting that “cheap” stigma get in the way of spreading Alexa AI magic to more people.... Read more...
We’ve already introduced you to three new gaming notebooks from Acer, but the company hasn’t forgotten about you desktop freaks. So, we present to you the Predator X27, which manages to cram in a lot of high-end features in a menacing package. First and foremost, the Predator X27 has a — surprise, surprise — 27-inch panel with a 4K resolution. But Acer doesn’t stop there, the display is also HDR-enabled with a refresh rate of 144Hz. NVIDIA G-SYNC technology provides a stutter-free gaming experience, and it is backed up by NVIDIA Ultra-Low Motion Blur (ULMB) technology. The Predator X27 makes use... Read more...
Microsoft is betting big on the follow-up to its current Xbox One S gaming console. It’s next big console, codenamed Project Scorpio, will be formally introduced at the E3 expo, which is less than two months away. In the meantime, we’re learning a little bit more about the console in the lead up to its official unveil. Today, we’re being treated to some screenshots which show the difference in image quality and detail between games rendered at 1080p versus 4K that’s possible with Project Scorpio. Although the screenshots were taken from a tech demo that Microsoft showcased at a private event, the... Read more...

Samsung earlier this month blitzed the home consumer market with a bevy of new 4K Ultra HD televisions with high dynamic range (HDR) support and its fancy quantum dot technology, though rather than hedge its bets on a single sector, it's bringing some of those same technologies to the big screen. We're talking movie theater screens—the new Samsung Cinema Screen is a 34-foot display with "unprecedented picture quality." This is a shot at digital projectors. The 34-foot display "easily accommodates modern theater dimensions" and delivers LED quality visuals at a 4K (4096x2160) resolution. It is also... Read more...
Nintendo did not concern itself with getting into a specifications war with Microsoft and Sony when it developed its hybrid Switch console. As such, even though it is the newest game system on the block, it is not the most powerful, nor is it built for 4K Ultra HD game play. That means the widely praised The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is destined to live in 1080p on the big screen and 1,280x720 on the Switch's 6.2-inch display, though wouldn't it be neat if it could be rendered in 4K? Well, it has been, through a port to the PC. Exzap, developer of the Cemu Wii U emulator for PC, got the... Read more...
On the desktop, a 4K resolution isn't just hard on our graphics cards; it can be hard on our eyeballs as well. When the first 4K monitors hit the market, most of them used similar form-factors as 1440p models, despite needing to cram way more pixels into that space. Speaking from experience, 4K on a 28" monitor can be headache-inducing, and it's for that reason that larger 4K panels can hold a lot of appeal. Philip's latest foray into 4K definitely has a lot of appeal with its 40-inch screen size, which means it'll require a fair bit of desk space, but your eyes won't bleed from squinting... Read more...
At CES 2017, NVIDIA launched its next generation SHIELD TV, which it claims has three times the compute performance of garden variety media streamers on the market and can interface with the Google Assistant. In addition, the new SHIELD TV has support for Spot, which are tiny microphone-equipped devices that you can scatter throughout your house (similar in concept to the Amazon Echo Dot). The new NVIDIA Shield TV is also running Shield Experience Upgrade 5.0. Thankfully, NVIDIA hasn’t forgotten about existing Shield TV owners, as it today announced that Shield Experience Upgrade 5.0, which is... Read more...
It looks like Pioneer will be the first company to release a line of 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray drives for PCs. Pioneer in Japan announced two models that are expected to go on sale later this month, both of which stick to the standard half-height 5.25-inch optical disc drive form factor. However, both also require Windows 10, at least 6GB of system memory, and a Kaby Lake processor. The two models are the BDR-S11J-BK and BDR-S11J-X. They've very similar to one other, with the higher end BDR-S11J-X sporting a paint job that's better at dissipating heat, low resistance flat cable, anti-vibration components,... Read more...
In the words of Toby Keith, “one more is never enough”. Razer just introduced “Project Valerie”, the first portable laptop with three built-in monitors.

For the first time, we’ve engineered a solution that users can take with them.
