For some time now, the Nintendo Switch cemented itself as Nintendo’s most successful console of this generation. The console’s success draws from its dual capabilities as a home console and a mobile gaming device. Unfortunately, the Switch can still work on a few improvements. For one, the Switch’s hardware can’t compare to the power of a fully built PC rig. Likewise, the Switch’s library of games peddles a grotesque amount of shovelware, compared to actual gems. Can’t we just get the perfect hybrid between the versatility of the Switch and the power of a PC?
At CES 2020, Alienware has unveiled a perfect solution for a mobile gamer’s woes. Called the Concept UFO, the gaming prototype packs in the hardware of a PC inside a Switch-like form factor.
According to the official press release, the device carries 10th-generation Intel Core processors. Unfortunately, since it’s only a prototype, Alienware didn’t reveal the complete inner workings of the Concept UFO. If anything, the device can play relatively modern games like Rocket League and Mortal Kombat 11.
As for more observable specs, the Concept UFO has an 8.0-inch main screen, outing images at 1900 x 1200 resolution. Like the Nintendo Switch, the device has detachable left-and-right controllers and a “Pro” controller to connect both into one. For design, the Project UFO has the same layout as a Switch, painted with the unmistakable sharp edges of Alienware’s design philosophy.
As you might expect, the Concept UFO runs on a customized variant of Windows 10, complete with Steam and Wi-Fi/Bluetooth connectivity. As such, you can presumably connect keyboards and mice to the device, pushing the Concept UFO further as a mobile gaming PC. It can also connect to a bigger screen.
Of course, a prototype is just a prototype. Despite the device’s already workable condition, Alienware has not revealed whether the prototype will turn into an official product anytime soon. However, with the Switch’s established dominance in the mobile gaming market, a PC alternative is very much welcome.
Sex tech is for everyone, not just for men
CES 2020 encourages sex positivity
Startup Lora DiCarlo graced the headlines last year for having its award revoked by the committee behind the Consumer Electronics Show (CES). The startup believes it was unjust and fought for its right to be part of the annual show.
This year, Lora DiCarlo is the talk of the town once again, not because of an issue, but for being in the spotlight of CES 2020. Lora DiCarlo paved the way for sex tech to be out in the open, particularly companies with devices geared for women’s sex, health, and wellness.
Sex tech isn’t new, but sex being taboo in this modern yet surprisingly conservative society took the spotlight away from their devices. In case you’re wondering, sex technology mostly ventures on innovations to enhance our sexuality and sexual experience.
In 2017, men enjoyed VR porn as if it was that revolutionary, while sex toys and vibrators that offer solutions to enhance our experiences and relationships aren’t getting the splash they deserve. Thankfully, CES 2020 is taking a step forward in ending sexism and encourage sex-positivity. After all, sex is part of human nature.
Ever since Lora Haddock DiCarlo — the founder of Lora DiCarlo — fought for their right to be at CES, I was astounded and followed her journey. I’m all ears for women speaking up, especially with the goal of making a change in our society.
Now that DiCarlo and her company sparked a controversy, sex tech are now in the spotlight of the annual show held at Las Vegas. DiCarlo didn’t expect herself to be at the forefront of change, but it elevated her profile and grew her business.
Pleasure is at the forefront
At CES 2020, Lora DiCarlo showcased their first device once again — the Osé — is a personal massager which produces blended orgasm by mimicking movements of a human partner. It’s that revolutionary, hence, gaining an innovation award. I mean, just imagine a device pleasuring you the way a human partner does — It’s astonishing!
Additionally, Lora DiCarlo unveiled two more devices: Baci and Onda. Baci is a micro-robotic device which stimulates the feel and motion of human lips and tongue, while Onda mimics the motion of human fingers. Even though it’s meant for women, I can’t wait to actually try one!
More sex technology to solve our needs
DiCarlo’s fight enabled other companies and devices to get noticed and join the spotlight. Satisfyer showed-off Satisyfer Connect, an app that can be used remotely with a long-distance partner. Lioness delivered its second-generation vibrator tracking data to improve orgasms.
Furthermore, Womanizer exhibited their products and Pleasure Air Technology — a combination of suction and pressure waves — which brings a mindblowing, orgasmic experience. While all of these talk about pleasure, Morari introduced a “band-aid” that withholds pleasure, solving the premature ejaculation issue prevalent with men.
2020 might just be the beginning, but CES showcasing sex technology is a huge step forward in encouraging a sex-positive society. If you’re still iffy about this technology, remember that you’re not the target audience and that you were born because your parents had sex.
