One of the coolest things that Microsoft has done in a long time is the Surface multitouch interactive display. If you are a geek with a trust fund or work for a company that is interested in Surface, Samsung is finally ready to ship is SUR40 display – first shown a year ago at CES 2011.
If you like to play pool and take your game on the road, this is the car for you, since it allows you to literally bring the pool table with you. Car customizer Big Daddy Vini and Triangle Billards built this portable billiard hall onto the back of a late ’90s Chevrolet Monte Carlo.

If you are a fan of the Mass Effect franchise, an interview that surfaced recently will make you giddy with anticipation. The new Mass Effect 3 game is coming before you know it and the devs of the game are saying that the new title will delve deeper into the story than ever before, and that Commander Shepard will get more emotion.
From time to time, you come across some strange combinations in tech. While not all of them are good, I can see how this one might work in some instances.
