Big Sound, Small Headphones: Sennheiser PC 156 USB Headset

Sennheiser PC 156 USBMore than its interactive elements, the true gamer knows that the real gaming experience is not just a visual experience but an audio one as well. However spectacular a monitor is in displaying images, to fully enjoy a game the way that the developers intended requires no less than a powerful sound system.

Of course, there are a few things to consider when it comes to sound. For one, there is a chance that the place you live in simply won’t allow a 5.1 or a 7.1 surround sound setup (think neighbors). Thankfully, there is a great alternative to a full sound setup: The Sennheiser PC 156 USB Noise Canceling Headset works great.

Move, Manipulate, and Feel elements of your game: the Novint Falcon

Novint Falcon Game ControllerGet ready for the Novint Falcon. This isn’t your average joystick, but an entirely new type of game controller.

Designed to replace your mouse or joystick ingame, the Falcon is essentially a small robot. The Novint Falcon Game Controller allows you to experience true virtual touch in a way that’s unlike any controller in history.

Real-time Tactile Interaction with your Gaming Reality

The Novint Falcon allows you to actually feel textile high fidelity, three dimensional force feedback. Novint Falcon Game ControllerYou move the Falcon’s controller right and left, forward and back (just like a mouse) but you can also move it up and down. When you move the free floating detachable grip and interact with a virtual object, the Falcon’s motors resist your movements creating the texture, shape, weight, dimension and dynamics relative to the game. These motors update approximately 1000 times a second, staying current with the displayed image on the screen.

Because the three dimensional feedback and interaction with the game causes the user to develop real physical manipulation skills (instead of just punching a macro key or clicking the mouse), the Novint Falcon adds an entirely new, ultra-realistic aspect of the game. While 3D imaging is nothing new, Novint’s technology transforms the user experience by adding realistically rendered tactile 3D touch to Computer Gaming.

Novint is pioneering all kinds of 3D touch products for the consumer market, the Novint Falcon being the flagship and introductory offering. In the past, the relative cost of 3D dimensional touch applications (also referred to as “Haptic” devices) made this kind of equipment impractical for consumer use. The best part about the Novint Falcon: It’s designed to be affordable for regular consumers.

Hard Drive Stacks Ready to Go

ult33051-main.jpgThe technology-solutions provider Ultra Products has been striving to provide a wide range of high quality products and services for some time now. Actually, it is the company’s mission to be the best in its field, offering superior, innovative products at great value that ensure maximum customer satisfaction, and the Ultra 3.5″ Stackable USB 2.0 / Firewire IDE External Hard Drive Enclosure is yet another example of how they accomplish this mission every day!.

Thanks to the innovative minds of the people at Ultra, anyone can finally configure their hard drive setup just the way they want it. Each Stackable unit can be operated separately, giving you the freedom to purchase only the parts you need. The Ultra Stackable product line offers three different models to choose from: IDE to USB 2.0, IDE to USB 2.0 or FireWire, and SATA to USB 2.0 or ESATA.

It is better to get the best out of both worlds, so a USB 2.0 model with the Firewire functionality is a smarter choice. Although the USB 2.0 transfer rate is 80 Mbps faster than the Firewire’s rate of 400Mbps, getting two interfaces will serve you well in the long run.

Aside from the plug and play USB 2.0 and Firewire Interface feature, the Ultra 3.5″ Stackable USB 2.0 / Firewire IDE External Hard Drive Enclosure supports support 3.5″ ATA 133/100/66 Hard Drives and a maximum capacity of 750 GB.

Anyone can use the Ultra 3.5″ Stackable USB 2.0 / Firewire IDE External Hard Drive Enclosure because its minimum system requirements include Windows 98SE, ME, 2000, XP, or Vista, Mac OS 9 and above, and a CDROM drive for driver installation. Also, the drive enclosure comes with a user’s manual, warranty registration card, drivers for Windows 98, an AC adaptor, a 5 foot USB 2.0 cable, a 5 foot FireWire cable, and two vertical brackets and four soft feet for horizontal stacking. The back of the enclosure features a 30mm active cooling fan, an on/off toggle switch, two 1394 FireWire Ports a USB 2.0 port and a DC power port. So, power can come from the included power adapter or directly from the Ultra stackable 180-Watt Multi-outlet DC 12V Power Center. The inclusion of two 1394 FireWire ports allows for up to three FireWire devices to be joined together. This promises a convenient way to add a couple more FireWire enclosures to the stack for compatible systems.

What makes personalization of hard drives through this stackable product a great buy is that its maker is offering a one year limited warranty on every 3.5″ Stackable USB 2.0 / Firewire IDE External Hard Drive Enclosure. And as if that is not great enough, that warranty can be upgraded to cover three years just by registering the product on the Ultra Products website.

Being smart, portable and practical, the Ultra 3.5″ Stackable USB 2.0 / Firewire IDE External Hard Drive Enclosure is promising to be another one of Ultra Products’ breakthrough devices that give customers great value for their money.

One of the most impressive technologies to be developed into a consumer goods phenomenon is that of the Noise Canceling earpieces.
