My HP didn’t want to boot any more and it had been giving me fits for ages so instead of fixing it again I just ordered a new box all together. Presenting the Cybertron Hellion XPredator X1. (No I’m not making that up.) Not everything’s hooked up yet nor transferred from the old drives, but it’s up and running and purring like a kitten. Here’s some of the specs:

Explore a speculative digital world without screens in this fanciful demo, a mix of near reality and far-future possibility. Wearing the HoloLens headset, Alex Kipman demos his vision for bringing 3D holograms into the real world, enhancing our perceptions so that we can touch and feel digital content. Featuring Q&A with TED’s Helen Walters.

When hooking up your Windows laptop to a projection system for a presntation there are a few things you should always keep in mind. For example, no one needs to know when you get new e-mail. They’re also not interested in your screensaver. And lastly, if your laptop goes to sleep during the presentation things may completely fall apart, especially when it comes to the projection system.
Luckily, Windows laptops have a little known feature called the Mobility Center that includes a single button that will take care of all these issues.
To find the Mobility Center, click your start button then type mobility center. The program should appear in your results list; just click to run.
When you’re all done, return to the Mobility Center and click Turn Off in the same box and all your settings will be put back the way you had them before.
The folks over at Make Magazine have written a wonderful article on the difference between the Raspberry Pi and the Arduino. Here’s a sample:
Here at Make: we see new, ingenious projects from our community every day. Many of these projects are made possible with the use of development boards. However, if you’re new to the whole idea, it can be confusing to parse out the differences between boards and the advantages of using one over another.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TWO?
An Arduino is a microcontroller motherboard. A microcontroller is a simple computer that can run one program at a time, over and over again. It is very easy to use.
A Raspberry Pi is a general-purpose computer, usually with a Linux operating system, and the ability to run multiple programs. It is more complicated to use than an Arduino.
We’ve created this super simple guide to help you get started. Then, when you’re ready, head to the Maker Shed to check out Arduino and Raspberry Pi Starter Kits, which come with all the goodies you need for your inaugural projects. Not sure you want all those peripherals yet? Start with the essentials: Grab the board of your choice and guide yourself with our Getting Started With series for Arduino and for Raspberry Pi.
