A real working coffee table sized NES controller… I wander how fast must your palm be to win any game…
Months was spent putting this together, starting with a scanned image of the original NES control. This is then simply scaled up, carefully crafting each piece out of MDF and jaming wiring onto a broken old controller board. The glass top was the final touch, to protect those giant buttons, and inside there’s plenty of storage.

FPS Gaming Vest

April 22, 2008


Video game characters live in a three-dimensional world, but gamers have only been able to experience two dimensions… until now. The 3rd Space™ Vest from TN Games takes gameplay beyond sight and sound, creating spatial awareness of the world your characters inhabit. Unlike traditional force feedback devices that rumble or buzz, the 3rd Space™ Vest gives you precise impact where it happens, as it happens. Get pounded with body slams, crushed with G-forces, and blasted with bullet fire.
For the lonely boy at home who has never been inflicted pain by anybody from the outside world before…

Sony Bravia KLV-40W400A

April 19, 2008


I just upgraded my 32″ Acer LCD TV to a 40″ Sony Bravia… using it to write this post. So big and bright in front of my face. This TV uses Bravia Engine 2; WCG-CCFL; Live Color Creation technology; 1080p24 input-ready; Digital Media Port; Bravia Sync (for Handycam camcorders); triple HDMI terminals. It has 30000:1 dynamic contrast (can we see the difference with the naked eyes?), 8ms response time (not fast enough for gamers), S-Force front surround audio, 450cd/m2 brightness, 178-degree viewing angle and of course ful Full-HD-ready. 
So what’s the big deal? Nothing much, I just like a bigger TV for watching DVD in my room, sharper image, warmth on a cold night, good to play my Wii with, and telling myself that I have to look up and down to see the entire window of this post, Wahhahaha…
oh, and the Sony logo glows when you switch it on… that’s cool.
Next target, a 60″ for my living room.

Dama TV Wardrobe

November 29, 2007


Dama TV wardrobe is equipped with a sliding and projecting door, 100 mm thick, with an integrated television able to slide even when the screen is on. The connecting wires go through the inside part of the door;in such a way, the structure avoids any obstruction in the inside of the wardrobe… woo… I like…

Perfectly integrated with the projecting door, the connecting cables run along the inside of the door,then on the top of the wadrobe.This avoids adding useless clutter to the inside of the wadrobe which can be fitted as desired.
