Custom PC desk / case combo ditches glass, metal for wood

Custom PC desk / case combo ditches glass, metal for wood

Desk case PC mods have lit up our radar before, but a modder by the name of Pirate — who’s no stranger to us — has dropped the typical glass and metal enclosure for medium-density fiberboard. Though the material choice was an effort to avoid buying a new desk, it created a need for a robust cooling system. Five fans (three exhaust, two intake), a radiator and a liquid-cooling system keep the rig at roughly 88 F (31 C) with ambient temperatures hovering around 79 F (26 C). As for horsepower, the workstation features a Core-i5-2000k processor and a Radeon HD 7950 graphics card sporting a water cooling block on an Asus Gene IV microATX motherboard. Visuals are piped to three displays in an Eyefinity configuration that are held by a modded ergonomic stand. Pictures of the build process in excruciating detail await you at the source.

PLX’s XWave Sport gives brainwave interfaces a casual look, triggers ’80s flashbacks

PLX's XWave Sport gives brainwave interfaces a casual look, triggers '80s flashbacks

Brainwave-guided interfaces are common. Most of the time, though, they’re not what we’d call subtle. PLX Devices hopes to have that licked through the XWave Sport, a brain interface that disguises all its sensors through a fuzzy, exercise-friendly headband. Underneath the incredibly 1980s-retro (but washable!) look, you’ll get about six hours per charge of tracking for concentration, relaxation and other noggin-related data that can transmit over Bluetooth to apps for Android, iOS or old-fashioned PCs. An SDK is available now, but pre-orders for the $100 XWave Sport won’t ship until September 20th. That should give us enough time to perfect our Flashdance reenactments.
