AMD has unveiled the world’s first 16-core gaming processor – the AMD Ryzen 9 3950X – in good fate to win the market for gaming CPU against rival Intel. It’s an interesting moment for every gamer because the Santa Clara-based chip manufacturer has never in years put up such a fight; to release CPUs that could beat Intel. “I don’t think there’s any reason people would buy an Intel processor after we do this,” AMD’s Travis Kirsch told TheVerge. The entire AMD Ryzen 9 3950X specs have not been released yet by AMD. But from what we ha...

Apple always has some tricks up its sleeve for its annual WWDC. This time it was the Apple monitor stand that costs $1000.

The monitor stand officially called the Apple pro stand, isn’t coated in gold or any kind of jewels nor does it have a ground-breaking new-age technology. It’s just a monitor stand required to hold a computer monitor at place. Th...

The VR headset could be available for purchase in Asia starting later this year, reports CNET. Unlike most VR headsets that won’t let you con...
Microsoft’s 343 Industries has teamed up with Limbitless Solutions to create Halo-themed, 3D-printed prosthetic arms for kids. Interesting, the prosthetic arms, which have fully functional hands that can grip objects through EMG sensors, are donated free of charge to recipients – obviously the best part of it. Limbitless’ design lineup, which already features adorable Iron Man arm, will include two Halo-themed options beginning from next year, reports TheVerge. Kids can recreate Master Chief’s Mark VI gauntlet in his iconic green, an...
About 288,000 people are currently living with spinal cord injuries in the United States, resulting from car accidents, falls, or gunshot wounds. And close to 18,000 new people join this number every year. One big challenge these people face daily is moving around with ease. With motorized wheelchairs, this challenge is less, however, only to a point. Not every one of them can control wheelchairs based on their injuries. Hoobox Robotics has introduced a new adapter kit, which is plugged to any motorized chair, Wheelie 7 to remedy thi...
