NexDock Laptop Dock: Atrix Reloaded
Last week we checked out Ben Heck’s keyboard and display in a box that he made to test dev kits. I mentioned that it should be a gadget that already exists. It turns out it does, and it’s called the NexDock. The NexDock is basically the old Motorola Atrix lapdock except you connect devices to it via its mini-HDMI and USB ports, which means it works with a variety of smartphones, single-board computers, PCs-on-a-stick and media streaming devices.

Review: Raumfeld SoundDeck Home Theater Speaker System

Review: Raumfeld SoundDeck Home Theater Speaker System
I recently got my hands on a selection of audio gear from Raumfeld, a German maker of high-end audio systems who recently made their entry into the U.S. market. I’m a big fan of their Stereo Cubes bookshelf speakers, and now I’m checking out their Sounddeck home theater speaker system to see if it lives up to the same quality. The Sounddeck sits somewhere between a soundbar and a full-size home theater system, containing its entire system inside a pedestal for your TV.

Raspberry Pi Game Boy Case Mod Has microSD Card Slot in Cartridge: Game Boy Zero
Another day, another Raspberry Pi retro emulator in a Game Boy case. But Redditor wermy426’s Game Boy Zero deserves its own post because it has a couple of neat features. The main one is that he loads software on the Pi by inserting a cartridge, just as you would load a game on a normal Game Boy.

Stratasys J750 Full-Color Multi-material 3D Printer: Protoshop
There are many 3D printers that can mix filaments of different colors, as well as those that can print with two or three different types of filament at once. But Stratasys’ new J750 PolyJet 3D printer raises the bar in both aspects, able to print over 360,000 colors and up to six different materials at once. The J750’s goal is simple: to put the “rapid” in rapid prototyping.

The FOO Show Virtual Reality Talk Show: Spooky Boogie
Last year, Tested co-founder Will Smith left the successful geek website to test the viability of virtual reality as a media platform. Now we can see his vision come to fruition. Will’s new show The FOO Show is a virtual reality show for the Oculus Rift (and soon for the HTC Vive as well). Will says they’re “using a suite of tools let us quickly and easily capture performances in VR using off-the-shelf hardware, like the HTC Vive and Oculus Touch (when it’s available).”

Chromecast in a CRT TV: Cast from the Past
Last month we checked out Dr. Moddnstine’s modern PC in a ’90s tower. It turns out that he found a 1978 General Electric CRT TV in the same heap as the tower, and he couldn’t let that go to waste either.
