AVerMedia Launches Volar USB TV Tuner Stick

AVerTV Hybrid Volar MAX is a long name to describe the multitude of functions the USB TV tuner does. The USB based TV tuner stick has the ability to receive HDTV, Analog TV and FM radio on any Windows XP or Vista computer or laptop.

Unless you need specific subscription channels, you no longer have to put up with cable or satellite costs to get the High Definition TV everyone is craving for. The AverTV Hybrid Volar MAX does it all. For video quality, playback and speed consider this:
“The AVer MeidaCenter provides users more joy from Clear QAM digital cable TV. Advanced real-time H.264 recording compression significantly reduces CPU loading and the amount of hard disk space needed for recording. The optional 320×240 resolution enables users to save and playback video on an iPod.”

Wii Title JoySound Is A Karaoke Singalong Perfect for American Idol

It’s been said for a while now that WiiWare was expecting Karaoke ability under a software program called Joysound. It appears this is finally coming to fruition. The Joysound Karaoke program has some ambitious plans with over 20,000 title by it’s release in mid summer with an additional 1,000 songs added each month.

“Although it’s being referred to as a WiiWare title, Joysound is a bit different from the rest of the WiiWare lineup. Users download the Joysound program from a server that’s being exclusively set up for it. This server will also house the songs for downloading. Hudson is currently considering a billing system based not on a per song rate, but on a subscription rate. Users will presumably be able to download as much as they want over a set period of time.”
As previously mentioned the Karaoke Joysound will be available in two packages. You can either download the software to run Karaoke but you’ll need to have your own USB microphone. Or a bundled package will be available which includes the software along with USB microphone. There are even talks about including Continue Reading

The Virtual Sphere is Ultimate Gaming Peripheral

The VirtuSphere could be the ultimate gaming peripheral.  The oversized ball allows a person to immerse themselves into a 3D world without obstacles or obstructions. A person would use a motion-tracking headset to project the visuals while the ball serves as your virtual terrain.  The ball allows the user to jump, roll, run, crawl for an unlimited distance without encountering real world obstacles.

At over $23,000 for the VirtuSphere I doubt you’ll see this in your local Dave & Busters or arcade, but I could see a less expensive version coming out to satisfy the masses. I could also see the VirtuSphere being used in other applications besides games, such as unique exercise or simulation experience for the military, government or law enforcement. Although this news might be new to you, Continue Reading

Tiny Wii Remote Isn’t a Wii Remote At All

Before you Wii addicts get too excited, it’s not a Wii remote at all, but a well disguised USB stick. This design uses the Wii A button to pop out the USB connector. The spring loaded mechanism looks a little stiff (see video). What’s great about this product, is it looks just like the Wii remote – but far from it and for the Wii fan – it stores between 1 & 8GBs of whatever you want.

So what do you call a Wii remote look-a-like USB stick? The Wedisk of course. For those interested in a gift giving idea, the company will also custom label the remote with your logo. Source: Techeblog. Continue Reading

Whack It Is Classic Now Whack It With USB

whack it arcade game
To digress back to middle school days has never been easier than with the USB Whack It arcade game. Or maybe Halo and Doom3 are just over done with technology and some good-old-fashion mole banging is required. As with future cell phones the Whack It is powered via USB so don’t expect any download-able high scores or on-line gaming forum for stiff competition…just power. Gadget Box didn’t reveal the mallet used for mole bashing, but if you’re the competitive type I’m sure an open hand and some good force will get you the high score every time. I’d say a perfect Christmas gadget gift. Source: SciFi.com Continue Reading
