Re: WTTF?WTB Nintendo Powergloves (yes plural)

I am almost positive that there is no such thing as a left-handed powerglove. Probably posssible to mod a standard powerglove to be lefty, though. Although it would make more sense to mod a powerglove to, I don't know, actually work . :D What's the plan - a Wii-compatible powerglove? That'd be sweet.

Re: LCD DVD player screen

If it has composite in, it should work. Just make sure it isn't composite out - almost all portable DVD players have that instead. You should be able to find pinouts online; otherwise, put up a quality picture so that people can point out where the important bits are. Also, is that document in the t...

Re: Circuit City closing sales - what deals did YOU get?

Actually, now that you mention it, there was a point just a few years back when I was working at Wal-Mart, and we found and sold some old N64 games that had fallen behind something in the back. I think it was 5 copies of Tony Hawks Pro Skater 2 or 3. They quickly sold at $17, so go figure. Perhaps y...

Re: Circuit City closing sales - what deals did YOU get?

I very much prefer to know our police officers are armed. I realize that it is not often that they need their sidearms, but in the rare instance, it is reassuring to know it is there. Wow, Bacteria, a member of law enforcement AND a portablizer extraordinare? Now that is impressive. I suppose a poli...

Re: Dual-screen UMPC/handheld game system

Well, you're right. Hand-held is not the best way to describe this. Ergonomics-wise, I'm going for the EEE held like a DS. It's definitely not going to be pocketable, and as for 9" screen, I had meant 7"... (I bought the 9" and was thinking of that while typing >.<) Not sure how you can hold an EEE...

Circuit City closing sales - what deals did YOU get?

As everyone knows, Circuit City is closing all its stores. They are selling off everything at reduced prices.

I bought:
Wii - wired internet adapter for $12
Wii - Rock Band 2 for $35
PSP - SOCOM Navy Seals Fireteam Bravo 2 for $14
Xbox - Cold Fear for, dunno, $5 or so

What deals did YOU get?

Re: Dual-screen UMPC/handheld game system

Low-power umpc/"net-top". Useful for browsing the web and reading RSS feeds/twitter, updating statuses, e-mail. Doing emulations and watching movies. Small form-factor, around that of a hand-held game system. Allows for lugging around, putting into (large) pockets or small bags. Dual screens with o...

Re: Advertisement parody

What about the Mac/PC ads? A parody would be relatively easy to do, plus you could go literally any direction with it. Simple and versatile. Otherwise, you can probably get some ideas from looking at the videos done by the Onion ( http://www.theonion.com ). Whatever you do, be sure to post a link to...

Re: Project LASER (BenHeck videogame)

As for your suggestions: I am supposed to be the guy who "puts it together" in a perfect world, but nobody seems interested in doing much. So, right now it is me, Skyone, and that is about it. That leaves Sky with coding, and me with everything else (Note: This is not Skyone's fault, I just need to...

Re: would this work?

Can you do it? Yes. You will face some challenges though: - You will need to include the entire chip along with the screen, which will make the portable large. - It will be a huge power draw on the battery, in terms of both voltage and amperage. These are drawbacks to any large screen, though, so if...

Re: Project LASER (BenHeck videogame)

Sounds like a great concept, but I think the labor needs to be more explicitly divided. People should not be in charge of more than one area. Break the game down into component parts: - game design - gameplay - graphics - sound If you have more people, break it down further; for example, sound split...

Re: How many hours do you spend on the computer a week

Let's see...

8 hours at work x 5 days = 40 hours
At least 10 hours a week outside of work...

Minimum of 50 hours a week. 30% of my total life, 40% of my waking hours.

Now that I think of it, that's really kind of sad.

Re: Check this out

Sweet! Probably do a number on battery life, though. If you planned it out in advance, you could probably keep the TV functionality on it. - don't connect the solder points to always accept input - ensure the antenna can still be used - keep channel-changing buttons You could even make a "channel bu...

hacking pocket TVs with only one circuit board

I bought a pocket TV on eBay. Comparing it to Ben's book, I see many of the same components, but the TV has one (main) circuit board. He says that it makes it "easier" to use. I realize I can't chop decent-sized hunks of the board off and expect it to work, but is there any way to further slim the c...
