Do you want an alternative to Raspberry Pi? Well, Samsung has one. It’s called the Artik 10. It’s very similar to the Raspberry Pi plus more. It packs an 8 Core, 32 bit ARM CPU with a Mali T628 MP6 graphics processor that can show HD video at 120 frames per second. Read more here.
For all of you who dreams on owning your very own Porsche 911 GT3 RS but can’t afford one, well you might just want to settle with this for $299.99 USD. All kidding aside, this is actually a cool build. I think it might also be limited. Great addition to all of you LEGO collector out there.
K’NEX is like LEGO, people build all kinds of stuff with them. Here’s one that is the world’s largest ball contraption you will ever see. Built by a 23 year old undergraduate Computer Science major at University of Minnesota. It consist of 126,285 pieces! Simply Amazing! Check out the video below and read the full article here.
Someone asked me to post a pic of my workstation so here it is. It’s not much. I’ve had this setup for about 5 years now. My computer is an aging i5-2500K @ 3.6GHz. I’ve had these same three monitors for 10 years now! I need a bigger monitor! I know it’s a turtle compare to my son’s gaming rig 😛
I finally got the time to post this gaming machine build I did for my son last year. Prior to this, he was using a Core2 Quad Q6600 and an HD7700 GPU. Apparently not fast enough for the kid and his gaming needs. After buying all the components online, it didn’t take me that long to put together. Now he has no more complaints of low FPS. I also went with components that are Red to go with his Red Gaming Keyboard and Mouse. Here’s the specs for those who are interested:
- Intel i7-6700K CPU Unlock
- MSI Z170A Gaming M7
- MSI R9 390X Gaming 8G
- Corsair 16GB DDR4 Vengeance LPX 3000MHz
- Samsung 250GB SSD 850 EVO
- WD Black 2TB 64MB SATA HDD
- Noctua NH-U12S CPU Fan
- Seasonic 750W Snow Silent PSU
- NZXT H440 Case
UPDATE: Just added pic of gaming mouse and keyboard and Racing Wheel and Pedals setup with Stand.
