A screen 23 "IPS to 190 €

The general public has become accustomed to screens TN LCD panels and their defects because this technology has always been much cheaper to produce. Fortunately, the time has come to erode the price slabs VA or IPS, far more interesting, so much so that there is now a monitor 23 "IPS Full HD only at 190 €, the AOC i2353Fh.

The additional cost of the IPS compared to TN is more than fifty Euros and is fully justified in our view by the best viewing angles of the IPS. Presented at CES in January, the COA has also i2353Fh an LED backlight which gives a thickness of only 9.6mm. MEDPI Seen by our colleagues at the Digital, it will be available in stores in August.

Retrospective: 30 Years of handheld consoles

[Video] Augmented reality by Sony

Sony introduced its Smart AR, an augmented reality system capable of using the video sensor of a smartphone and a stereoscopic screen, according to a statement posted on the website of the Japanese. The video below shows a very impressive demonstration. Sony claims to have begun his research into augmented reality systems in 1994, the statement said.

The first models were taking pictures of a bar code, then added the related information. In 1998, a software running on the VAIO PCG-G1 used a 3D bar code named Cyber Code. SmartAR stands of ancient prototypes by the absence of marker. Recognition technologies allow 3D objects not to barcode and track the subject scanned at high speed to continue layering information or images on his movements, the very principle of reality grew.

Foxconn victim of an explosion

Foxconn has sent a press release to confirm that an explosion took place at its plant in Chengdu in China on Friday to 7 pm, local time. He explains that two people were killed instantly and a third died of his injuries Sunday. Fifteen other workers were injured and six of them were already being treated and sent home.

The depth reports that the findings of a preliminary investigation believe that the explosion was caused by the presence of fuel particles in a pipe string polish. Several witnesses uncorroborated by Foxconn and Apple, the factory produced iPad 2. Cupertino nevertheless advised All Things D was working with Foxconn to determine the cause of the explosion, which seems to confirm that the affected production lines were dedicated to him.
