No, it's not another pair of geeky 3D glasses - well, actually it kind of is, but these ones actually work. They're not 3D either, but don't worry. You won't notice. These claim to replicate the effect of a 50-inch cinema screen - inside your own head. iTheatre.
The glasses work with most video sources - iPod, DVD, PSP, laptop etc - and have two twin TFT LCD monitors to give you all the fun of the cinema, wherever you are in the world. They won't even give you eyestrain, either: the dual screens make your eyes focus at a respectable 2.5m. They're ± R 2,114 and currently only available to pre-order. Damn.
Not to be confused with the Media Centre software iTheatre for Mac.
"Let me tell you what bugs me of the human endeavor
I've never been a human in question, have you?
Mankind went to the moon
I don't even know where Grimsby is
Forget progress by proxy
Land on your own moon
It's no longer about what they can achieve, out there on your behalf
But what we can experience
Up here and of our own time
And it's called mental wealth"
Enter the Optimus keyboard concept, very good idea as this could help a lot of professionals out there, imagine sitting down to work on PowerPoint, Photoshop or even Quake 4...as soon as your application is active, your keys change to reflect the shortcuts / functions for the associated application! Well, this is still just a concept and even Harrods will not be able to get you one. :P
Do not worry, a 3 button version is available and soon a 12 button interactive screen input device.
Now you _can_ have the any key ^.^ for those Microsoft applications that require it ;)
