Finally, someone has put the Nintendo PowerGlove to good use! I’ll never forget the hype leading up to the release of the PowerGlove, how I envisioned playing my NES games in virtual reality, and then witnessing it’s total lameness when my cousin brought it to my house for the first time. It just plain didn’t work! Well, now zerosign.net has documented the making of the PowerGlove Mouse (pMouse for short) and we can all browse through our desktop and surf the internet pretending to be Tom Cruise in Minority Report.

Undervolting a laptop

January 24, 2006 at 9:42 am

It’s no secret that laptops tend to overheat and burn through their batteries in the blink of an eye. Fredrik Andersson of NordicHardware explains the technique of undervolting a laptop to cool your system down and extend its battery life. The expression “undervolting” is actually a misnomer, since what we’re really lowering is the tension of the system, resulting in a lower required voltage. I’ll be testing this on my old Dell laptop that is constantly overheating, and hopefully I’ll keep it alive for a few extra years.

These new laptops are powered by a dual-core Intel engine and come with a 15.4 inch TFT display. Well, at least mine is bigger.
