A new year always brings new and exciting technologies for everyone. And to start off the new decade, Alienware plans to drop a full-fledged gaming system at CES 2020. This gaming system contains both a top of the line PC and monitor fit for competitive gamers and content creators alike.
The cool Aurora breeze
First off in Alienware’s list is a new desktop system fit for both gamers and content creators. The company dubs it “Aurora” and is a mid-tower desktop with the latest hardware and a unique cooling system.
The Alienware Aurora sports the latest, 3rd generation AMD Ryzen 9 3950X 16-core processor for heavy duty tasks and productivity. Also, the Aurora comes with an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080Ti, and can also come with dual NVIDIA NVLink SLI enabled. With that enabled, expect unparalleled graphical power while gaming.
One other innovation the Aurora possesses is in its airflow design. Alienware’s designers modified the tower chassis to increase airflow during intense workload. They claim that such design lessens airflow obstruction so that temperatures for the voltage regulator significantly decrease. This further allows a lesser risk of prolonged damage to other components, as well.
The big, wide gaming monitor
Coupling the new Alienware Aurora is the new Alienware 25 Gaming Monitor. This new monitor promises to provide gamers with speed and color accuracy suitable for victory.
It features a 25-inch IPS, FHD display with a 240Hz refresh rate, which is twice as much as most gaming monitors in the market. The higher refresh rate is coupled with what Alienware claims as a true, 1ms response time for increased reaction time. Also, the display supports AMD’s Radeon FreeSync and NVIDIA’s G-Sync for a smoother gaming experience.
Much like the Aurora, the new Alienware 25 Gaming Monitor comes with its revamped cooling system. The company claims to have optimized its ventilation, releasing air from the top bottom and rear sides of the monitor. All of these are placed inside a sleeker, more premium design that snugs right under the keyboard.
Pricing and Availability
The Alienware 25 Gaming Monitor will be available in March 11 2020 for US$ 499.99. The Aurora is already available today and will come in two variants. The Aurora R9 will retail for US$ 849.99 while the Aurora R10 will retail for US$ 1,199.99.
Samsung Galaxy Chromebook now available on Best Buy
Best of Galaxy tech and Chrome OS
Working and learning from home has now become the norm for a lot of people around the world. If you’re looking for a flexible workstation, or even just to stay entertained during self-isolation, the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook is now available for purchase.
The new Galaxy Chromebook combines the best of Samsung’s Galaxy tech such as an AMOLED display and built-in-pen support, with the simple and fast Chrome OS.
Its AMOLED display is the first ever featured on a Chromebook and delivers 4K UHD resolution for a more immersive Netflix and chill experience.
It’s also packed with productivity tools, such as the built-in pen for note taking, drawing, or signing documents. Internally it’s powered by the latest 10th Gen Intel Core i5 processor.
It’s also equipped with Intel Wi-Fi 6, so your next Zoom meeting (or party) would go as seamlessly as possible. There’s a good helping of ports available — two USB-C ports, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a UFS/MicroSD slot. RAM can go up as high as 16GB while storage is up to 1TB SSD.
Those who have shifted to digital learning for the time being can enjoy a more collaborative experience through Chrome OS features like Google Drive functionality.
There’s also Click-to-Call and Messaging apps along with other Samsung smartphone features that you can access directly on the laptop.
Google Assistant is also readily available whenever you need it.
The Galaxy Chromebook is available in Fiesta Red and Mercury Gray on Samsung.com and Best Buy for US$ 999.99.
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.
