Weve also highlighted some of the top peripherals for use with CS: GO, including monitors, keyboards and mice. Alienware is a long-term big beast in the global gaming market and the firm has churned out some seriously good machines in the last few years. Its systems arent ruinously expensive these days, and machines like the Aurora balance good components with eye-catching physical design. The Aurora is a compact mid-tower with lashings of smart design: clever cooling helps chill the components, and the PSU swings out on an arm to allow tool-free access to the rest of the hardware. Its got customisable lighting, Under the hood, its got a Core i5-6400 processor, which has four cores and a 2.7GHz stock speed, and 8GB of dual-channel memory is plenty. Theres a 1GB hard disk, and Killer Ethernet on-board for world-class wired performance.

Mitsubishi's coupé-like SUV will rival the Nissan Qashqai New Japanese SUV will sit between the ASX and Outlander; its coupé-like design is inspired by the XR-PHEV concept Mitsubishi has offered a first glimpse of its upcoming Nissan Qashqai rival with a preview image, released just over a month before it makes its debut at the Geneva motor show debut. The 2017 model will come as part of the brand's push to capitalise on its sales growth by offering a full range of SUVs. The new car, yet to be officially named, will be larger than the ASX and sit below the Outlander in Mitsubishi’s range. The image shows that the new model's nose will have some resemblance to the Outlander, but its more angular rear with a coupé-like roofline and slimming glassline are less conventional for a Mitsubishi SUV. In the past, the firm has erred towards traditional boxy designs, but in 2014 it hired Tsunehiro Kunimoto, who spent 40 years at Nissan , where he worked on, among others, the Juke .

For all of its devices that use communications technologies like Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and NFC, Apple has to submit them to the United States Federal Communications Commission for approval, and the filings, though restricted, occasionally give hints as to what Apple is working on. In early January, Apple sought approval for an unnamed "Wireless Device" that features support for NFC and Bluetooth. With a model number of A1846, the device appears to be an iteration of a similar Wireless Device that was submitted for regulatory approval back in September. That device shared the same design but had a model number of A1844. The A1846 model number is not similar to existing Apple products, unveiling no information. There are no photos of the device itself, but a regulatory label that was on the original A1844 device pictured pointed towards slightly curved edges and two included torx screws.

If you don't follow Leica M cameras closely, it might be hard to understand what the fuss over the M10 is about. But for those who do, the new camera represents a big step forward. There are other models in the Leica portfolio to take care of cutting-edge technical innovation, and the Leica M has a different role. Here, Leica's aim is to balance the long tradition of its M-series cameras with the needs of today's photographers. People buy Leica Ms because of what they are, and they don't want things changed so every new feature in the M10 is designed to make it better at what it already is, not to turn it into a different kind of camera. And for its $6,495 (5,599, AU$9,699) price tag, the Leica M10 caters to a very niche audience. Given that Leica is committed to keeping the design and function unchanged, it's perhaps no surprise to find the M10 looks superficially just like the Leica M , the M-P, and even the M9, launched eight years ago.

Video resolution is always on the rise. The days of 640×480 video have given way to 720, 1080, and even 4K resolutions. There's no end in sight. However, you need a lot of horsepower to process that many pixels. What if you have a small robot powered by a microcontroller (perhaps an Arduino) and you want it to have vision? You can't realistically process HD video, or even low-grade video with a small processor. CORTEX systems has an open source solution: a 7 pixel camera with an I2C interface . The files for SNAIL Vision include a bill of materials and the PCB layout. There's software for the Vishay sensors used and provisions for mounting a lens holder to the PCB using glue. The design is fairly simple. In addition to the array of sensors, there's an I2C multiplexer which also acts as a level shifter and a handful of resistors and connectors.

Is there anything cozier than cranking up your fireplace on a cold winter's day (or even a cool summer evening)? Whether wood-burning or gas, it's always a good (read: safe) idea to contain the flames with a fireplace screen. Though I love an ornate brass peacock screen as much as the next guy, it's not always simple to find a streamline, contemporary version to coordinate with a more modern room design. We did a little virtual shopping, and came up with these 14 beautiful options. READ MORE »

When she and her daughter first moved into this two-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment in Mesa, AZ, actress and stylist Ashley Yazzie Ward was pinching pennies. She would collect change here and stuff loose dollars into piggy banks there, all in hopes of decorating her new home to her heart's content. Most days she would pin pictures to her inspiration board hoping one day she'd be able to bring her dream home to life. Thanks to some serious patience and determination, all of her saving slowly began to pay off. Though it took time, she was finally able to start crafting the retreat of her dreams. Just because she had the funds didn't mean she was going to blow it all on one piece, though. Ashley knew she would have to stretch every dollar if she was going to afford herself the eclectic, streamlined look she loved. And it all started with some baby aloe vera plants she came across online.

My husband and I are starting to think about buying our first home or building a small cabin and keeping our apartment. Somehow building a cabin 30 minutes out of the city makes me nervous. That we'd miss out on things happening here in Des Moines, IA. That life would become less convenient. And then I heard about the Asay family. Libby and Tad Asay and their children are packing up their home to move to Eastern Asia later this month. They are excited for this new adventure, but it absolutely comes with costs they are willing to pay. They'll be leaving behind their house in Ames, IA that they've lived in and have transformed over the last six years. Libby is a photographer and stay-at-home mom and Tad is a mechanical design engineer. When Libby was 8 months pregnant with their oldest child, Linley, they purchased this house based on what they could make it into.

Motion Design: Nickelodeon Kids Pick The President abduzeedo Jan 24, 2017 Nickelodeon Kids pick The President is a motion design and illustrations project shared by M A D E B Y R A D I O . As the name suggest, its a series of illustrations and motion design work for the 2016 presidential election in the USA. There's just too many things to love about this motion design project. Starting for the amazing sketches, that by themselves, would have been enough for us to feature the project. The translation to 3D is for lack of better word, stunning. It is fun and really smooth. The inflatable White House is one of my favorite pieces. We worked with Nickelodeon to create a bunch of animated spots for the 2016 Presidential Election. Nickelodeon stages their own child based national election and has correctly predicted the winner every single time - except for once.

Valldoreix, located in the Barcelona province, is home to a residential project designed by 05AM Arquitectura . House in Valldoreix is not just a house though... it's part house and part exhibition space for modern art. Set back from the street and neighbors, the residence opens up on the south side with large expanses of windows. The house comprises four volumes, two pairs that face different directions with three double-height spaces that connect the volumes, as well as the separate floors. The ground floor houses the exhibition spaces, which are finished with concrete walls and floors that offer a neutral background to showcase the art. Each of the four volumes is built at different heights to allow natural light to filter in the through windows set above. Bright primary colors are interspersed sparingly throughout balancing out the concrete. Photos by Adrià Goula Sardà.

We still have a long way to go until the end of winter (it ends on March 20th, in case you’re curious) but we’d be okay with postponing that date a little while longer because of Eldvarm , a brand founded by Louise Varre that’s bringing a fresh, minimalistic spin on the ordinary fireplace accessories. The collection is designed in Sweden by Emma Obers and parts are made locally in France with quality materials: sustainably sourced untreated French Beech wood, non-harmful powder-coated steel, Swedish leather, and traditional horse hair. Not only does the brand use ecological materials and produce locally (to minimize transportation and carbon footprint), it also creates meaningful jobs by shipping out orders from Adapei , a center that provides people who have intellectual disabilities with a steady, meaningful job. All packaging is made from 100% recycled materials. To purchase a piece of the collection, visit Eldvarm .

When a material is made, you typically cannot change whether that material is hard or soft. But a group of University of Michigan researchers have developed a new way to design a "metamaterial" that allows the material to switch between being hard and soft without damaging or altering the material itself.

The case : Jonsbo MOD1 http://www.jonsbo.com/en/products_36_1.html Not really a 'case', as such, more a semi enclosed frame. To some this will be an 'ugly case' and will not appeal - Good, we are all different and the more experimental case manufacturers get, the better - in my humble opinion. The design is 'similar' to the In-Win S frame, a case i could only have dreamt of owning. Some might cringe at the price of £280 for this case, but in todays market it is priced quite reasonably compared to other 'high end' models. Will it be whisper quiet with 10 x 120mm fans ? Doubtful Will the semi-open frame attract dust ? More than likely Is it an In-Win S Frame ? No, but it is £1000 cheaper :D Personally, i bloody love it.
