ZeroN from MIT - forget your old mouse.

On more than one occasion we have addressed the issue of user interfaces of the future, something we are working on multiple research centers and technology foresight. Holograms, touch systems and augmented reality systems are some of the technologies we have seen in projects like Holoflector materialize, Vermeer Microsoft Research or Project Glass of Google. In the Tangible Media Group at MIT Media Lab are working on a project called Zeron, impressive with which they are developing a new way to see the man-machine interface interaction that allows us to touch and handle real objects "airborne" to control systems information or simulations, the "tangible interfaces".

Rumor - finally, a outstanding MacBook Pro

Study - Psychopaths have a different brain structure.


Are there differences between the mindset of a murderer and a seemingly normal person? Although the obvious answer is yes, so far no evidence had been made as clear as those obtained in the latter study at KingCollege in the UK. The study indicates that psychopaths have a very different brain structure to the rest of us.

To this end the researchers scanned the brains of men convicted for murder, rape and violence even finding differences that separated them from other violent criminals to those with antisocial personality disorder.

Go right - a tribute to all platform games

Platform games marked an era. You could say that even gripped a generation.

With a simple design, controls became almost instinctive (moving, jumping, running, or perhaps some action) and creativity, platform games became a constant in different consoles, including next generation consoles are still used . And there is something compelling, almost nostalgic in platform games, contain much in just two dimensions, that become epic.

That's why "Go right" - becomes a great tribute, which includes epic and classic games such as Megaman, Castelvania, Super Mario and others as modern as Joe Viewtifull or modern versions of these games.

Sony VAIO T, the first official Sony ultrabook

Saying that this is the first official Sony ultrabook doesn't mean it is actually the "first". With Intel's push to create the brand ultrabook as thin and light notebooks, Sony also wanted to play this trick with a name that began to be recognized. Sony launches new VAIO T series, with the first model SVT1311M1E VAIO, laptop with 11" and 13" screens with a thickness of 18 mm.

Although I personally believe the Sony VAIO Z as the first ultrabook Sony official ste could be considered new laptop as their first "official".
