Are you in need of a new gaming laptop? You’re in luck: There are some exciting things happening in the gaming laptop world, and the newer models are more powerful, more compact, and more feature-rich than ever before.
After reporting on companies getting hacked, Fusion reporter Kevin Roose wanted to find out exactly how devastating it would be to have one’s online identity and information stolen. So he asked two computer security experts – Chris Hadnagy of Social Engineer and Dan Tentler of Phobos Group – to hack him.
We get it – four years is a long time to have the same laptop, especially with all the upgrades and new models available today. If you need a new college laptop (or even your first), it’s important to pick a great computer that will last as long as you need it to…and that can handle your unique workload.

Oh Japan, is there no end to your wackiness? No. There is not. That’s okay. That’s just the way we like it. Japanese inventors have done it again. They have created a computer mouse with a pad that simulates the feeling of pressing against the gentle paw of a six-month-old puppy or kitten.
Operating systems have built-in voice dictation, but YouTuber Zip Zaps wanted an old school output device. So she made an awesome-looking set of fingers that manually operates a typewriter.
Zip Zaps didn’t actually modify the typewriter itself.
Back in 2009, we checked out a real-world version of the Weasley’s locating clock. Redditor tbornottb3 recently made his take on the time– er spacepiece, but instead of mechanical hands he used an LED strip.
The clock is powered by the Particle Photon, which gets data from the smartphones of tbornottb3 and his relatives via the powerful app If This Then That.
The HELCY bag has a silly backronym – Healthy Ergonomic Laptop Case for You – but the idea behind it is actually pretty sound. If you usually take a stand with your laptop, why not carry one less item around and use your bag as the stand?
Researchers at the Hasso-Plattner-Institut have come up with a way for visually impaired people to interact with images, similarly to how we use touchscreen devices. Their Linespace computer display uses 3D printing components to draw raised lines and shapes.
We’re all fed up with telemarketers and robocallers. For Roger Anderson, the last straw was when his young son was harassed by a telemarketer. This motivated him to create the Jolly Roger Telephone Company, software that wastes the caller’s time by responding to them with recorded dialogue.
I love Fallout 4 and I’m mostly too lazy to bother changing my everyday Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard for one of the hordes of gaming keyboards I have. 99% of the time when landing head shots on Supermutants from afar, everything goes swimmingly.
I’ve seen 48″ wide mousepads, but a company called Pad-Zilla easily tops that with its debut product. The Pad-Zilla Large measures 60″x 30″ – that’s 5 ft x 2.5 ft – and the company has three even larger models in the works.
Thanks (or no thanks) to Microsoft, someday we could have clouds under the sea. The software giant recently shared details on what it calls Project Natick, an experiment about constructing and operating an underwater datacenter.
The datacenter in these images is Project Natick’s prototype Leona Philpot, named after a character in the Halo universe.
SparkFun Electronics came up with a neat idea for a set and forget file server. The Rogue Router can power itself using one of SparkFun’s new solar panels, so you can place it even in remote locations.
Prototyping has become very easy and affordable these days, but it still can be messy. Startup Bosphorus Mechatronics got tired of wiring, soldering and stacking shields too, so they came up with TinyLab.
Put simply, TinyLab is an Arduino Leonardo paired with a variety of commonly used components, all packed into a 8″x 5″ slab.
