To make room for those light and slender Ultrabooks, it might just be time to let go of the steampunk mods, no? Nahh. John Dunn originally made this steampunk laptop for Sony, but can now be yours.
We swung by Sony's booth and got a look at two encased concepts that offer a glimpse of what's in store for the future of mobile computing. Needless to say, they're freakin' awesome.
Last night I took one for the DVICE team. I put on Sony's dorky headgear — the Personal 3D Viewer — and gripped the ten and two positions on a Logitech racing wheel and played Gran Turismo 5 through a virtual 150-inch TV. How did it go? Oh ho ho.
Sony has been going through a rough time recently, so news that they have decided to get out of the OLED TV business for the consumer market, isn't going help boost anyone's confidence.
The PS Vita is in a pickle right now — in Japan. For the second straight week since the new handheld launched, sales for the handheld have continued to fall. Is the PS Vita pulling a Nintendo 3DS, where slow sales, after an initial launch bonanza caused Nintendo to slash $80 off after about six months on the market?
Just a few months ago we showed you an amazing video demonstrating quantum levitation. Now a video on YouTube wants you to believe we are one step closer to flying toy cars, but you might want to look a bit closer.
From its inception, the Sony designed the PS Vita to do one thing best: play games. Whereas Sony admits the PSP was had an identity crisis — marketed as a music player, Internet communicator, video player, gaming device — the message is clear that PS Vita is a gaming machine first and foremost. Here are the games you'll be playing on Feb. 22.
Termites manage to power themselves by eating wood, which is a pretty neat trick. Sony has just come up with a battery that does the same thing: feed it shredded paper or cardboard, and it produces enough electricity to run an MP3 player.
We've already given you a visual tour of the PS Vita stacked up against a bunch of other gadgets, but what does the inside of Sony's newly launched handheld (in Japan) look like? As you'd expect, like a lot of green circuit boards.
There's no shortage of 3D displays and TVs available for purchase these days. To many, the extra couple hundred — or sometimes thousand — bucks isn't worth the extra "D," but prices are slowly coming down from a year ago. Sony isn't giving up the 3D dream, though. The company is gambling hard on 3D tech, this year releasing the 3D TVs you'd expect, as well as some crazier options in the Personal 3D Viewer or 3D binocular camcorder or 3D cameras. Now with store shelves full of 3D-enabled PlayStation 3 games, so something like this only makes sense. The PlayStation 3D Display is Sony's latest 3D consumer goodie and it's aimed squarely at college dorm rooms. Think of it as the startup kit to suck non-believers into the 3D vortex. So, will it claim you, too?
