AOC Rolls Out Multitouch Gesture Control 21.5″ Display

AOC has just introduced a new multitouch LCD display, dubbed the Touchmate e2239Fwt. The 21.5″ multitouch LCD display is ideal for software applications that require gesture control. The touch screen features 1920 x 1080 pixel Full HD resolution and an amazing 20 million to 1 dynamic contrast ratio.

If you’re getting this monitor for your PC gaming, you’ll be happy to hear that it has just a 5ms response time and is LED backlit. A lower response time of course minimizes the effects of ghosting (motion blur of moving images).

Asus Reveals World’s Thinnest Notebook, The U36

Electronics manufacturer Asus, has been a leader of many firsts. They were the first to get netbooks to take off with the Eee PC 4G surf way back in 2007. I remember marveling at netbooks back then, and I still have my Eee PC1000H I bought in August of 2008- it still works well.

Asus has just revealed a 13.3″ notebook dubbed the U36 that is purportedly the thinnest in the world. It is powered by a fast Intel Core i5 CPU and a Super Hybrid Engine to cut down power consumption on the laptop.

Iiyama Rolls Out New ProLite Monitors

Now these monitors will originally be sold exclusively through Japan, but as with all technology, we are likely to see similar spec’d hardware pop up all over the globe. The monitors each have a 5ms response time, making sure that there is minimal blur with moving objects on the screen.

Google Invests $280M On Solar Panels

Google has spent over $700 million so far this year on clean energy. The money will directly fun the installer, SolarCity to offer solar powered systems to homeowners for no down payment. In exchange, customers will have to pay a fixed price for the power produced by the panels.

Google will earn a return on investment by charging SolarCity interest to use its money, allowing Google to also take the benefits of federal and local renewable energy tax credits.

Samsung Introduces First 30nm DDR3 RAM

Samsung today announced a new 30nm DDR3 RAM module, coming in 2GB and 4GB sticks that are designed to keep power consumption low, about 66% more power efficient than a regular chip, in fact. The chip still hits a 1.6Mbps peak bandwidth.

The most optimal use of these new RAM modules would be laptops and netbooks that require less memory and a low power draw, thus enhancing overall battery life. The memory modules will be available in both single and twin packs depending on your needs.

Sharp’s New Digital Signage 60″ Uses 50% Less Power

Ubiquitous’ Technology For Improved Lives

At the Embedded Systems Expo, Ubiquitous demonstrated a power strip that features a built-in Wireless LAN called the iRemoTap. This power tap can display the power status of devices that are connected to it from either a PC or a mobile phone, giving users the added option of switching the power on and off remotely. Ubiquitous has its own OS and the people at the company specialize in developing software for embedded systems.

The OS runs on only a few kilobytes and the operating system uses a serial connection. The sensor systems can be accessed easily via wireless LAN. With this power-strip, users will be able to turn off devices they had forgotten about and receive an email or tweet if the power consumption goes over a set point.

VIA Rolls Out Two New Chips

VIA Technologies make computer chips for power efficient x86 processor platforms. The company announced on Friday that it will be rolling out a new line of low power dual core VIA Nano X2 Series processors at the ESC (Embedded System Conference) in San Jose.

The E-series processors are extremely power efficient and feature dual-core architecture, specifically designed for 86-bit and x86 embedded system applications. The models to be released will be a 1.2GHz and a 1.6GHz chip and both processors come with a seven year warranty.
