Durabook R11 makes a splash with a bang

durabook-r11When it comes to tablets, these tend to be rather fragile – however, this does not mean that there are no parties out there that do happen to work on a tougher or more rugged model. GammaTech Computer Corp. has come up with their fair share of tough devices in the past, including the Durabook TA10 tablet, and this time around, it would also be another tablet of theirs that will grace the headlines – where it would be the Durabook R11 in play. What makes the Durabook R11 stand out from the rest of the crowd? For starters, it happens to be the lightest and thinnest unit in its class, tipping the scales at a relatively lightweight 2.73 pounds, and will arrive in not one, two, or even three, but a quartet of separate bundled configurations.

20141005151322-Front_photo_2014.1005

I remember the first time I was introduced to a microscope, I was instantly intrigued, and wanted to “magnify” absolutely everything I could get my hands on. Some of it was spectacular, other things? Well, let’s just say I will never be able to un-see them. But all in all, the ability to see the world around me in such detail was wondrous, and something everyone should be able to experience, and the Dotlens may just be┬áthe gadget that brings that experience home.

When you want to make a meal from scratch, you know how much preparation it’s going to take.

The Bluetooth Ornament Speaker will rock around the Christmas tree

The bluetooth Ornament Speaker

It’s that time of year again where we adorn our home with lights, poinsettias, and various nods to Old St. Nick. We feel more giving than normal, but also secretly (and sometimes not so secretly) hope everyone else is in the giving mood too.

Dart stylus would refine your tablet experience

dart-stylusWhile most of us already own a tablet that we have become so accustomed to using it with your finger or fingers, purists will tell you that a device the size of a tablet would definitely fare better when you have a stylus to go along with it.

How about a far more formal stylus like the $59.99 Dart stylus from Precision Touch to get the job done?

SciO is a molecular sensor that will help you learn about the world

SCiO

We have a general thirst for knowledge of the world that can’t be quenched. We were born with no understanding of our surroundings, and have to be taught what things are, how they work, and how to interact with what’s in front of us. After a certain point, it’s up to us to gain knowledge about the world rather than being educated by teachers or parents.
