3D TV without glasses -- for the brave

Watch 3D TV without glasses!

Having to wear glasses is one of the big drawbacks of current 3D TVs. They can be uncomfortable, they're often expensive, and they make you look like a dork.

Companies like Samsung and Toshiba are working on bringing glasses-free 3D TVs to market, but there are no consumer-level models available yet. Nintendo's 3DS handheld games console promises 3D effects without the eyewear, but it won't be quite the same as sitting back for some sporting action on your 60in LED TV.

Jonathan Post claims to have come up with a novel solution. Okay, it's not that much of solution, but it's certainly novel. By using a pair of electrodes, the system can simulate 3D TV active shutter glasses by rapidly opening and closing alternate eyes. Quite frankly, we think it looks terrifying (if creative!)

Update: Okay maybe it was a hoax after all!

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre x360

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
