HP Swing motion controller ships with Pavilion PCs in India

Posted in HP by Conner Flynn on April 25th, 2010

This oddly shaped device is yet another motion controller. We don’t have many details, but the HP Swing is being bundled with HP Pavilion desktop PCs in India (for about 29,990 Rupees, or $670).

The controller won’t be available separately, and looking at that design, we doubt it will be released in the states. And even if it was, you wouldn’t want it. It looks a bit like a gel insert with left and right buttons.

Gyroswing Golf Club keeps your swing on targetGyroscopes are awesome. They keep us upright on Segways, let us shake apps on our iPhones, and play boxing on the Wii. Now they will help you get that perfect golf swing. The Gyro Swing, by golf outfitter SKLZ features a gyroscope in the club head that helps your swing stay balanced and on course, giving the golfer a sense of stability and a perfectly timed swing.

If your stroke falls out of line, the club offers gentle resistant to guide you back to where the club should be. Is it cheating? Sure, but who cares. You’ve been getting your butt kicked long enough. For $200, you can be the man. The man in plaid, cheating, hoping to get the respect of other golfing old-farts who could care less and are also likely cheating.

The Swing: USB hubs get classy

The Swing: USB hub gets classyUSB hubs being the neccessity they are, it’s always nice to see one that looks like it could class up the joint. And this one really is a nice bit of architecture. They merged a Newton’s Cradle with a USB hub. The Boynq Swing gracefully suspends four USB cables underneath an arch. It just sits and waits and looks classy.

Aside from it’s awesome design, it’s pretty much your typical USB hub, sporting DC power for multiple high-powered USB devices and fuses to protect against power surges. It’s got a sweet look and I hope other hub designers are taking note. We’d like to see more like this.
