Lumus 3d 720p glasses

Lumus – 720p 3D Video Glasses

Lumus is the company that announced a revolutionary new product, a pair of 3D video glasses capable 720p video rendering. The lens creates a virtual display seen at a  distance of 10 meters by the viewer.

Lumus video glasses can play 720p videos. They can also play 3D thanks to a system working independently of each lens. When “off”, the lens remains a normal glass, but can be adapted for people with vision problems. So far, we know that is compatible with iPhone, in the future would be good to be compatible with a wider range of products. Lumus 3D video glasses will be presented at CES 2012, but until then, those from Lumus are seeking companies especially interested in the new technology from the gaming industry.

I find it amazing that they managed to produce such a quality product that offers portability and almost unimaginable graphic levels. Perhaps fans of movies and games will be the most ecstatic, but I cannot help wondering what effect it has on vision. There is still controversy about the fact that television lead to vision problems. I do not know if it has been proven that staying close to a display can affect the eyes, but I’m curious if there have been studies regarding wearing 3D video glasses, this close to the retina.

Intel SSD 710 Series With High Endurance Technology

Intel Solid-State Drive (SSD) 710 Series with High Endurance Technology provides extreme strength and performance for greater reliability and efficiency.

Intel Corporation has launched a new series of SSD designed for data centers, Intel Solid-State Drive 710, featuring Multi-Level Cell (MLC) flash memory SSDs replacing the Intel X25-E Extreme. While Intel X25-E SSDs were constructed with NAND flash memory, single-level cell (SLC), more expensive, but reliable, Intel SSD 710 uses NAND MLC type flash memory of 25nm. The new series of Intel SSD 710 is equipped with Intel High Endurance Technology (HET) to provide performance and durability necessary for data centers, financial services, Internet portals, search engines and other demanding applications.

Intel SSD 710 offers the same resistance as SSDs based on SLC NAND flash memory type, but uses MLC NAND memory type, which is more efficient in terms of cost and has a greater capacity. Reaching an out-of-the-box write cycle of up to 1.1 Petabytes (PB) and is available in three versions, with capacities of 100GB, 200GB and 300GB. Designed for intensive I/O applications, Intel SSD 710 reaches a random write performance of 4K (2,700 IOPS) and random read of 4K (38,500 IOPS) and can successfully replace NAND SSDs SLC type memory or classic hard drives. Furthermore, the new series of Intel 710 SSD can replace multiple hard drives in a data center, which will reduce energy consumption.

Intel SSD 710 also contain security features and reliability. These include increased data protection in case of breakdown of current, Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) with pre-configured technology of 128-bit encryption to protect data in case of internal threats, monitoring of temperature and business interruption prevention.

The new SSDs can be configured by the user to achieve a write cycle to 80% higher, creating a very large storage capacity. Intel’s firmware enhancements include error prevention techniques, algorithms to reduce write amplification and error management system standards beyond Error Correction Code (ECC).

How To Choose Your Laptop Bag

Laptops have become part of people daily life, a laptop needs proper care and attention as you have to transport it almost everywhere you travel.

Unfortunately, when people are purchasing laptop bags, they typically disregard crucial things to be considered. This probably due to most of laptop bags generally come with the laptop that they purchase and they can acquire that bag for free. Even so, I recommend that if you’re not short on money, you better buy a different bag to improve protection for your laptop. That’s
because average laptop bags may protect your device, but these average bags are light and their intention is to facilitate carrying the laptop while protecting it from basic harms, but not to protect it from heavy hits or drops, water, chemicals or whatsoever other things out there.

The next highlights give you the crucial standards that you must consider when purchasing a laptop bag. These are probably not the precise rules of thumb that can apply to all bag models, but I have collected from the basic features that an effective laptop bag should deliver..

Foremost, you should choose waterproofed. Water is the most principal obstacle that you have to hold your laptop away from. You have to be sure that the coat of the bag could keep the water off rapidly. If possible, you can ask the salesman a test for waterproof but in just about all shops you are not permitted to do so. Next, you should think about resistance to chemical factors.

Although there’s not often the case that your laptop is near to chemical agents, unless you’re working in an environment that sustains chemicals daily. Even so, your laptop bag could be unexpectedly touched with chemicals so you better look for a bag that can protect your device. Particularly if you want to purchase a genuine leather bag, it is good that the leather surface is clothed by rainproof and chemical resistant materials.

A last advice is to look for a laptop bag that is soft and flexible, with good compartment protection. An effective laptop bag should hold the device in a secured position, to avoid jumping up and down, protecting the device from excessive strikes. These are the top 3 standards that you have to consider before purchasing a laptop bag. You can also look for more information
on this topic, but I’ve highlighted up just the most vital ones.
