The Seamless Screen.


The poor bezel, I wonder what it ever did to us to deserve this hatred, but wow… Humans really dislike them. With every smartphone from last year trying hard to kill the bezel, Asus Rog finally designed a hack that does just that, but it isn’t for phones just yet. The Bezel Free Kit fulfills the dreams of gamers, allowing them to put together three monitors and remove the bezels between each WITHOUT using electricity or batteries). How does it do that? Refraction. The kit comes as two independent strips that can be placed between monitors. It uses a lens that ‘bends’ light in a manner that removes the bezel from view, making it look like you have one continuous screen.

The result isn’t perfect, but it’s enough to make a difference. You still notice the fact that there’s something sitting between screens, and it applies a slight blurred effect to the imagery behind it, making it good for games, but not for productivity. The Bezel Free Kit snaps right on to monitors and comes in three sizes, designed for 24″, 25″, and 32″ monitors, but you’ll need to make sure all your monitors are the same make and size, so that the lens strips can easily mount onto the displays. Scroll down to check out a video of the guys at Verge having a look at it. Wouldn’t it be fun though if your smartphone screen protector could refract light to remove your bezels?

Avengers: Infinity War – Brand New Trailer.


Following the disappointing Superbowl TV spot, Marvel and the Russo brothers have more than redeemed themselves by dropping what will undoubtedly become one of the highest viewed trailers of all time.  Marvel can’t seem to do any wrong.  With the outrageous success of Black Panther, their next MCU entry is destined to do just as well or better.  Check the trailer out below.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald (Official Trailer).


With Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald set to focus on the rivalry between Albus Dumbledore and the villainous magician the sequel is named after, we don’t really know what role Eddie Redmayne’s magizoologist will end up playing in the J.K. Rowling penned release. However, this trailer changes that by making it clear he’ll actually be working as a proxy of sorts for his teacher.  There’s not a huge amount of Johnny Depp in the teaser (probably because a lot of fans have campaigned for him to be removed from the project after claims made by his ex-wife Amber Heard) but we do get a glimpse of his villain and a better idea of what he has planned for the Wizarding World.

The New Iron-Man… (Toys).


Hot Toys has revealed its upcoming figure based on Iron Man’s appearance in ‘Avengers: Infinity War and it provides a detailed new look at Tony Stark’s upgraded armor and the amazing weapons he’ll wield.  Spoilers below…

Avengers: Infinity War is going to feature updated looks for a lot of our favourite heroes, including Iron Man. We’ve known for a while that Tony Stark will be rocking a brand new suit of armour in the highly anticipated movie and now Hot Toys has unveiled an action figure giving us a detailed look both at its many capabilities and the various changes which have been made to the hero’s appearance here.

The figure features an interchangeable helmeted head with metallic red, gold and silver colored armor painting and a newly painted head sculpt with striking likeness, LED light-up functions scattered throughout the armor, a variety of Iron Man’s latest weapons including interchangeable LED light-up Nano Repulsor Cannon, Hand Cannon on left arm, a pair of attachable Nano Boosters on the back, and a specially designed figure stand with the movie’s logo.

Introducing The Pioneer DJ DDJ-SB3.


Pioneer upgraded one of their most popular Serato DJ controllers to create the 2-channel DDJ-SB3, designed for dedicated use with Serato DJ Lite (previously known as Serato DJ Intro). The new controller offers an intuitive interface for beginner DJs to craft professional performances and improve their skills.

 

The interface of the DDJ-SB3 is even more intuitive to use than its predecessors, inheriting traits from the layouts of the top models in the DDJ-S series including the introduction of the dedicated play and cue buttons, and the independent Auto Loop button.

In collaboration with DJ Jazzy Jeff, we’ve created Pad Scratch. The brand-new feature on the DDJ-SB3 enables you to reproduce scratches based on the legendary hip hop DJ’s own recordings by simply pressing the Performance Pads. Plus, smooth mixing is a breeze thanks to another new feature, FX Fade. You can use these features to create a professional performance, even if it’s your first time behind the decks.
