What You MegaTech Missed: Computex Edition Michael Kwan June 5, 2011 Computex Taipei 2011 wrapped up this weekend, so you may have missed some of the coverage we had from the giant exhibition. For instance, the Kingston Wi-Drive is a pretty neat little gadget. Definitely borrowing some of its styling cues from the iPhone 3GS, the Kingston Wi-Drive is a portable hard drive that happens to have integrated Wi-Fi connectivity. In short, you’re able to connect up to three different iDevices (iPhone, iPad, iPod touch) to the Wi-Drive and share the files that are stored on the memory inside. There’s even a specific app that allows you to view photos, watch videos, and listen to music. If you’re more into casual gaming, then you might want to see the video I shot of a booth babe playing Asus WAVI Xtion. It’s like the Kinect for Xbox, but by Asus. NZXT was over at Computex too. They might be better known for their computer cases, but they don’t shy away from other product portfolios too. For instance, you might love the look of the new NZXT Havik 140 cooler. The “inverted” color scheme would work quite well with a white NZXT Phantom case, don’t you think? The Havik 140 CPU cooler features a 100% copper base, aluminum fins, and six copper 6mm heatpipes. The fans themselves (there are two of them) measure 140mm and they’re able to push 90.3 CFM. They say that a picture is worth a thousand words, but a video has to be worth much more than that. Our sister site Futurelooks.com has a video from the NZXT suite at Computex and the new Havik 140 is featured in there, along with other cool new goodies from NZXT, so be sure to check that out. Do you like Sandy Bridge? Do you like Zotac? Do you like WiFi? Have all of the above with the Zotac Z68-ITX Wi-Fi, which also comes in a “Supreme” edition for those who want a little more goodness in their computing diet. A quick rundown of these mini-ITX motherboards includes Blu-ray playback, Dolby TrueHD, integrated 8-channel HD audio, on-board 802.11n Wi-Fi (hence the naming of the boards), and Intel Smart Response technology. You can also expect the latest USB 3.0 and SATA 6Gbps expansions. The Supreme gives you mSATA via the PCIE Gen 4 slot too. What about outside of Computex? Outside of the shiny fluorescent lights and glaring product displays? What about outside of buildings altogether? For that, you might appreciate the convenience of the picnic table suitcase. This is quite the amazing little contraption. Folded up, it’s as portable as a regular suitcase. Open it up, though, and you get a real picnic table complete with seating for four people. No one likes showing up at the town’s most popular barbecue spot only to find that all the tables are taken, right? It’ll only support people up to 250 pounds each, though, so your larger friends might still be stuck sitting on the grass instead. Share This With The World!
