PlayStation Vita as PlayStation 3 controller

Posted: 18 Oct 2011 06:44 AM PDT

Sony fans are waiting for PlayStation Vita with anticipation, and if you plan to buy PlayStation Vita, you might want to know that you'll be able to use it as a wireless controller for PlayStation 3. 
Several weeks ago at Tokyo Game Show, Sony has demonstrated PlayStation Vita by connecting it to PlayStation 3 using wired connection. Although PlayStation Vita used a wired connection for the purposes of presentation, Sony Worldwide Studios President announced that you'll be able to connect PlayStation Vita to PlayStation 3 wirelessly when the final version of the product is released to public. PlayStation Vita support should be released via standard update in December, but currently, we don't have many information related to compatibility with current and future PlayStation 3 games.

As you can see, PlayStation Vita can work as a gamepad replacement, however, only compatible game that was shown on Tokyo Game Show was Killzone 3, but we hope that we'll see more compatible games with the release of final product.

OmniTouch turns any surface into multitouch touchscreen

Posted: 18 Oct 2011 03:08 AM PDT

Touchscreens are rather popular nowadays, as well as motion control devices such as Kinect, but what do you get when you combine those two technologies into one?

Microsoft and the Carnegie Mellon Human Computer Interaction Institute have decided to team up, and they have made a new device called OmniTouch that can turn any surface into a touchscreen. OmniTouch is a device comprised out of picoprojector and a 3D scanner similar to the Kinect, and in order to use it, you have to wear it on your shoulder. This device is capable of tracking your finger position in air, and it can detect whenever you press a "button" on any surface. We also have to mention that OmniTouch comes with a multitouch user interface that works with any surface such as walls, tables, or even your hands.

OmniTouch is a revolutionary device that easily turns any surface in touchscreen, but we doubt that we'll see OmniTouch in stores anytime soon.

If you want to show a photo on your iPhone to a group of friends and don’t have the time to fiddle with transferring files onto a computer, just project it onto a wall with this latest gadget. The Monolith Case by Century is able to project images in 640×360 resolution, a 1000:1 contrast ratio, with 12 lumens of brightness.



The largest projection size possible is 60 inches, but its recommended that this be projected in a dark environment to ensure quality. The Monolith also does double duty as an external battery pack, featuring 1,900mAH battery raising your iPhone's battery life by an estimated 50%. It will require 4 hours to fully charge although it shouldn't impact your phone's charge time.

Unfortunately, for the time being, the Monolith iPhone 4 / iPhone 4S case is available only in Japan and will set you back $260.
