Control Video Games Thru Brainwaves 50°
January 13, 2008 // 9:40 pm - NeuroSky has developed a cost effective bio sensor and signal processing system for the consumer market. Our wearable technology unlocks worlds of new applications such as consumer electronics, health, wellness, education and training.

The neurons that comprise the brain work on electrical impulses. The last century of neurological research has shown us that brainwaves of different wavelengths indicate different emotional states, like a focused awareness, a meditative state, or drowsiness. Brainwaves have been used in medical research and therapy for years. We're bringing it...


Buzz!: The Schools Quiz 100°
January 12, 2008 // 2:12 pm - Much as we'd sometimes like to convince ourselves otherwise, we spend our days writing a silly website about videogames. Among our nearest neighbours in Brighton is Relentless Software, best known for the Buzz! series of games for PlayStation 2, and soon PlayStation 3. What they generally do is make silly quiz games about popular culture.

But that's going to change somewhat today with the release of Buzz!: The Schools Quiz. The Schools Quiz has been created in partnership with the Department for Education and Skills (DfES), and uses more than 5,000 questions based on the Key Stage...


Blu-ray Skies Are Here! 100°
January 10, 2008 // 8:25 pm - The fat lady hasn't sung yet, but for all intents and purposes, it looks like the next-generation DVD battle between Blu-ray and HD DVD is pretty much over.

The winner of the two-year battle - akin to the Betamax and VHS war of the '80s - seems to be Blu-ray, thanks largely to Warner Bros. Home Video's recent announcement that it'll be going all Blu-ray, all the time, after late May. (It had been the only movie studio that hadn't picked a side, releasing in both Blu-ray and HD DVD formats.)

Warner will be joining Blu-ray-only studios including Sony Pictures Home Entertainment,...


USB 3.0 in the flesh! 250°
January 10, 2008 // 7:58 pm - Get ready, speed freaks. USB 3.0, the often-rumored, much-discussed, rarely seen new standard heading our way has been spotted, sliced, chopped, and diced at CES 2008.

Actually, we just got a chance to check the connectors and compare with the old 2.0 standard (which the reps tell us is backward compatible, of course).

With speeds of 4.8 Gbit/s (600 MB/s), and a powering system which intelligently cuts the juice when you're not using a device, we have a feeling you'll want. Too bad we all have to wait till 2010... the year we make contact... with USB 3.0.


XstreamHD details continue to emerge 50°
January 9, 2008 // 3:03 pm - Just a few hours before our live coverage of the XStreamHD press event (11am PST) with Michael Douglas; many of the details have been released and we have to say this thing looks so incredible, we don't see how it can live up to the press release -- this is one of those times when we'd really love to be wrong.

For starters, the service promises to deliver "the latest content from leading studios" in 1080p (MPEG-2 and x.264) with 7.1 channels of lossless DTS-HD Master Audio (96kHz/24bits) to your home via satellite, and if it stopped there it would be impressive enough, but no. The...


New Line Details Transition to Blu-ray 50°
January 8, 2008 // 10:38 pm - Confirming earlier reports that it would follow Warner to Blu-ray exclusivity, New Line says its first HD DVD title ('Pan's Labyrinth') will also be its last.

Though it was widely assumed that New Line (whose parent company is Time-Warner) would follow Warner Home Video's lead and continue to release on HD DVD through May 2008, a company rep tells us that New Line's move will go into immediate effect, with all of the studio's planned HD DVD releases now cancelled (including the HD DVD versions of current Blu-ray releases 'Hairspray' and 'Rush Hour 3,' which had previously been planned...


Sony's challenge for 2008: Take on software companies 50°
January 8, 2008 // 12:45 am - Sony has shored up the problems in its electronics, and will concentrate in 2008 on bringing more video content to its devices and improving its software, said CEO Sir Howard Stringer.

"We will see if we can enter the battle against the software companies. This is probably the year we need to demonstrate that," Stringer said during a meeting with reporters at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas Monday morning.

One of the first examples of this strategy will be an expansion of the PlayStation Network. The network now is mostly used by gamers. Sony wants to turn...
