Any Americans out there wanna buy a wacky head-mounted 3D display? Then Epson’s Moverio BT-100 micro-projection headset ought to be right at the top of the your not-so-long list of options. It’s just started shipping in the States for $ 699, including its Android-powered trackpad controller that streams and navigates content on the perceived ’80-inch’ transparent viewing window. You could even pair the Moverio with a Parrot AR.Drone and discover what it feels like to be an Apache pilot strafing your neighbor’s rabbit.
Alienware may have just upgraded its Aurora gaming rig, but that’s not to keep the company from giving more diminutive form factors some love. Just this evening, the subsidiary of Dell announced the X51, a slim gaming PC that’s designed to orient itself either vertically or horizontally on the desktop — complete with an Alienware logo that properly rotates depending on positioning. The system includes both Core i3 and i5 options, and features a slot-loading optical drive with an option for Blu-ray. While it’s no shocker, the X51 can be upgraded to 8GB of RAM and a full 1TB of storage. Further, the case accommodates a single, full size NVIDIA GeForce GT 545 graphics card, (with the GTX 555 available as an upgrade), and features an external power supply that’s available in 240W or 330W versions. Users can also expect HDMI 1.4, on-board WiFi, USB 3.0 and digital 7.1 surround sound. As a nifty trick, the computer’s accent colors can be conveniently modified with the Alienware Command Center software. Touting immediate availability, customers can place orders for the X51 right away, with configurations starting as low as $ 699. For the complete set of specs that make up this Mini-ITX gamer, just follow the break.
