Logitech G13, NBA in 3D?, HTC and Android, 6-Wheel Car!?

Labels: , , , ,

A new keyboard [not entirely a whole keyboard] is coming out soon, the Logitech G13. Apparently, at the press release that it was announced at, they mentioned that it supported World of Warcraft... twice. Amazing. It has the G15's screen, 22 keys, and keys that are backlit(for those late nights playing WoW). It even sports an analog stick, which i don't really think is necessary but, it's there anyway. I can't really think of a use for the analog stick, but maybe that's because i've only played WoW on the computer. It's fairly expensive, being $80, but for you hardcore nerds out there, this might be useful to you. It also supports both Windows and OS X. Personally, i wouldn't get this, because it's pretty expensive and also because i don't have anymore room on my keyboard to fit this thing on there. I've actually never owned any of these extra keyboards or whatever you want to call it, but i'd rather have the G15 on my desk.

What's going on? NBA in 3D? Well, yes. "NBA is teaming up with Turner Sports and CinedigmDigital Cinema to broadcast live in 3D its All-Star Saturday Night events" to 80 movie theaters across the U.S. on February 14. I actually thought this was the first time that NBA was going to be shown in 3D, but after reading this article, it mentioned that they broadcasted one game of the NBA Finals in '07 in 3D and some of the All-Star game of 2007. I read the article, and i don't think it will be available for us, Canadians. It mentions that the event will be shown on about 160 screens in 35 states across the U.S. I actually thought the article was very interesting. It was going to be my LOL of the day after reading the title, but that would actually be kind of cool if i got to see NBA's best in 3D. Watching the Slam Dunk Competition in HD would be pretty ballin' [see what i did there!]. Read the article if you want, too much for me to summarize for you guys.
One of my previous blogs mentioned that Sony Ericsson would be releasing a phone with the Android OS. Well, someone else will also be releasing an Android phone, HTC. According to Engadget, both Sony Ericsson and HTC are only 'semi-confirming' this idea. But, in another article, HTC said that they will launch one or more Android phones in the new year. I think they are only 'semi-confirming' this because they might not want the public to know about their plans and that they're going to announce it when they feel like, blah blah blah. But yes, HTC and Google working together, how much more pro can it get?

A friggin' car with 6 wheels!!? Wow, that's serious. Apparently, it has 'more traction' and has an 'improved absorption of frontal impacts' compared to traditional 4-wheelers. The car looks kind of funny with 6 wheels and kind of looks photoshopped. Thankfully, Gizmodo confirmed that this was not the case. This 6-wheeler car is called the Corvini C6W. The C6W will race at around 185 Mph when the first models roll out in late 2009. The car model looks really good, but awkward at the same time, because of the 6-wheels. Pretty cool, nonetheless.
