SilverPac SilverFrame with touchscreen, WiFi-n, SideShow and media streamingSilverPac has announced their SilverFrame Advanced Digital Picture Frame (ADPF) at Computex 2009, and this is no cheap photo display, like you are used to seeing in bargain bins. The ADPF runs Windows Embedded CE 6.0 R2 and supports Windows SideShow and Windows Live FrameIt for displaying online content on its 10.1-inch 1024 x 576 touchscreen.

The frame will not only show local photos, play video and stream music from across a network, but it can sync with your calendar, show emails and allow for replies, and view photos from Picasa, Photobucket, Facebook and a Windows Live account. All in one device. Connectivity includes WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.0, infrared (for the remote control), a multiformat memory card slot and both full-sized USB and a micro-USB port.

Microsoft SideShow offers gamers a secondary touchscreen

Microsoft SideShow offers gamers a secondary touchscreenMicrosoft’s SideShow is a secondary sub-display running off of a Windows Vista system. It hasn’t been as popular as the company had hoped, but now they’re setting their sights on gamers to rejuvenate the concept. The idea is a 6.4-inch touchscreen that is switchable between portrait and landscape orientation, which would present game-specific controls and free up the main display.

Imagine an RPG title that could shift its control palette to the SideShow display, leaving the main monitor for the primary interface, or racing games that could offer a separate rear-view mirror. Yes, it has a lot of potential in gaming.

Life-size R2-D2 & C-3PO replicas

Life-size R2-D2 & C-3PO replicas
Join the dork side with these life-size R2-D2 & C-3PO replicas from Sideshow collectibles. I get it. It can be lonely being a Star Wars fan. I mean, you’ve got all your merchandise around you. Posters, movies, all those action figures still in the bubble. But life sized friends in your life? Sideshow Collectibles can help. Both of these droids are available for pre-order and they’ll ship sometime in the third quarter of this year.

Spending $5,950 for a life-size C-3PO, and $5,450 for R2-D2 will make you feel like you are actually part of the saga. Both figures are made from fiberglass and have lights and sounds powered by a set of AA batteries. Plus, they each come with their own display base and magnetically attached restraining bolt to make sure they stay your droid slaves. If you want to pre-order either one you’ll need a $950, non-refundable deposit. That’s probably peanuts compared to the money you’ve spent so far on your collection.
