Angelis Labor Gabriel


Angelis Labor Gabriel: "GABRIEL - Debut September 2008

A true reference turntable equipped with a base that can accept up to four arms. The materials used include aluminum, bronze and stainless steel. The turntable and arm are totally decoupled at several points - beneath the base, beneath the turntable and beneath the pin, using a magnetic field calibrated and controlled with great precision.

Type: magnetic levitation
Transmission: double Belt in special material
Thrust block: Magnetic levitation with absolutely no friction or noise. The tolerance levels of the mechanical parts are incredibly low.
Power supply: Three speeds, 33 – 45 – 78 rpm with fine regulation. The motor is controlled by two electronic cards, the first controls the speed electronically and the second card reduces the motor vibrations by means of electrical adjustment of the phase of the motor itself.

The Gabriel Arm is made in Modena, Italy in the same factory where they construct precision parts in highly technical alloys for Ferrari. The arm is a very sophisticated achievement of which we are very proud. The Gabriel turntable and arm require absolutely no antiskating and in fact have no provisions for it. The turntable system is composed of three parts - the table and base for one to four arms; the 13-inch arm; and the cartridge. The Gabriel frame consists of two cone sections created by overlapping bronze with aluminium. These sections are joined by an aluminum rod. The first cone supports the turntable bearing, the second the arm and its mount. The assembled unit is quite tall and heavy: over 30 kilos. In terms of appearance, this is one of those analog monuments which catches everyone's eye the first time they see it."

Mouse Cyber Sport Orbita poderá ser uma revolução | Meio Bit


Mouse Cyber Sport Orbita poderá ser uma revolução Meio Bit: "Com data de lançamento marcada para janeiro de 2009, o Cyber Sport Orbita vem para ocupar o lugar do mouse tradicional. O grande diferencial de vendas está na substituição dos botões tradicionais do mouse por um sistema de rolagem."

Meio Bit | Notícias, Dicas, Internet, Informática, Tecnologia, Download


Meio Bit Notícias, Dicas, Internet, Informática, Tecnologia, Download: "Não estou dizendo que a Microsoft não está investindo. Se tudo der certo 2009 será o Ano do Windows no Desktop, com o lançamento da Versão 7, que pelos testes que tenho visto está rodando muito bem, mas mesmo assim falta entusiasmo.
O Mercado caiu em uma mesmice onde só se fala de performance seca. Eu estou pouco me lixando se o Firefox 3.1.5.1 é 3,14% mais rápido que o Opera 10.4.1 quando executado em noites de Lua Cheia com o notebook virado em direção a São Francisco."

What 's Up With Touchscreen Desktops In The Making? - Gizmo Watch: "We’re moving fast to Gestural Interfaces in computers and electronic devices. While it’s only a matter of time before we start using the computers seen in sci-fi fantasies, human nature will make us speculate on the possibilities ahead. Touch and gesture based devices available in the market currently are immensely popular with the users, and with the launch of HP’s TouchSmart and TX2 computers, desktops with Gestural Interfaces appear a lot closer."

Digital Drops » Blog Archive » Philips Essence, Uma HDTV LCD de 42″ com Speaker Bar: "A Philips Essence é uma HDTV LCD de 42″ com um design minimalista que ficaria linda exposta na parede da minha sala como uma obra de arte. O detalhe mais interessante é que ela tem um receptor que conecta todos os outros aparelhos com um só cabo, inclusive o cabo de energia, assim você pode esquecer aquela bagunça de fios espalhados pela casa."

Nvidia reveals the personal supercomputer | News | TechRadar UK


Nvidia reveals the personal supercomputer News TechRadar UK: "Harnessing the power of the GPU beyond just basic graphics output has been inevitably bigged-up by Nvidia as the next big computing leap. Such confidence has it that general processing GPUs (GPGPUs) will be in everyone's PC of the future that it has released a range of high-end GPU-based plug-in cards under the name Tesla.
The numbers make for compelling reading with the latest 10-series products in Nvidia's Tesla range quoting up to 960 cores and up to 4 teraflops of performance. Before you get all over-excited though, the cores referred to are in fact shader processor threads.
Unless your chosen application runs optimally under an accelerated floating point environment, you won't see much of Nvidia's quoted '250 times the computing performance of a PC'. That said, Nvidia's CUDA programming environment (see below) is designed to tap into Tesla's specifically designed architecture and start the ball rolling for the next generation of mainstream application development."

Transistor faz 61 anos Meio Bit: "Uma invenção nascida no Bell Labs, em 23 de Dezembro de 1947, iria mudar o mundo, a cultura e o comportamento da humanidade. Se hoje uma pessoa consegue saber, em segundos, com a precisão de metros onde está no planeta, o invento fundamental, é ele, o transístor. Os físicos John Bardeen, Walter Houser Brattain, and William Bradford Shockley receberam o prêmio Nobel de Física em 1956."

CES 2009 To Witness 512GB SSDs From Toshiba - Gizmo Watch


CES 2009 To Witness 512GB SSDs From Toshiba - Gizmo Watch: "What’s the limit with storage capacity for SSDs, perhaps eternity we guess? If you thought the 256GB solid state drives for laptops were enough for the maximum we slogged over the machine, then except Toshiba’s invite to the CES 2009, where Toshiba aims at introducing the industry’s first 2.5-inch 512GB Solid State Drive. Lots of GBs indeed, but nothing superior comes cheap, so get set to empty your pockets if you wish to own one of those rigs housing this storage capacity."

Supercomputador no desktop | Meio Bit




Supercomputador no desktop Meio Bit: "O computador mais rápido do mundo para aplicações civis, no momento, é o Cray XT Jaguar, com 1.64 quatrilhões de operações por segundo (petaflops). Será que teremos isso rodando em nossos PCs em uns 15 anos? Se olharmos para 1988, eu diria que até mais do que isso e sem precisar de uma usina de força."

Game On With The 120-foot Monitor At NYU - Gizmo Watch: "Larger high-resolution screens offer an opportunity to visualize data at the finest possibility, and make it almost effortless to navigate through the menu. Having seen the massively built HIPerSpace and the recently exhibited 307 million pixel screen by the Texas Advanced Computing Center, this 12-by-120-foot monitor may not be the biggest to lure the most here, but is a capable introduction to the University of New York’s Interactive Telecommunications Program."

Digital Drops » Blog Archive » Edifier E3350: Caixas de Som Multimídia com Subwoofer e Design Premiado na CES: "O botão de controle auxiliar é o toque de classe, simplesmente sensacional, e ainda por cima tem outras utilidades, porque esconde a saída para fones de ouvido e a entrada para microfone de 3.5mm. Você liga e desliga o E3350 em cima do subwoofer, e ajusta os graves em um botão na lateral. Enquanto está ligado, o topo do subwoofer e o botão de controle ficam acesos, dando um efeito visual interessante no escuro."

Clamshell Mouse: A Concept You Wanna See? - Gizmo Watch







Clamshell Mouse: A Concept You Wanna See? - Gizmo Watch: "We’ve seen the Arc Mouse from Microsoft, but is there anything that can be made anywhere near to the mesmerizing creation from the big-daddy? Perhaps it may be too much to ask from an individual designer, but to churn that which isn’t obvious is what the designers live for, and this clamshell mouse is a perfect underling statement to hold the case affirmative"

Intel Ships 2.5-inch 160GB SSDs For Nerds Demanding High Storage - Gizmo Watch


Intel Ships 2.5-inch 160GB SSDs For Nerds Demanding High Storage - Gizmo Watch: "After Toshiba’s claim of revealing a 512GB SSD at CES 2009, the motive to state supremacy has got a new wind. On one hand, it’s a fierce competition between manufacturers, and on the other it is a market grabbing game between SSD and HDD. Taking on the might’s of Samsung and Toshiba, Intel has begun shipping its 160GB Solid State Drives come holiday season, to make an entry into the spree of high capacity drives – which is steadily becoming a need of the hour."

Google Docs Gets A Boost With Its Very Own Desktop Gadget - Gizmo Watch


Google Docs Gets A Boost With Its Very Own Desktop Gadget - Gizmo Watch: "Google Docs has been around for sometime, but it doesn’t really have much of a user base. Only 1% of adult internet users opt for Google Docs, and that is not exactly an encouraging number. To tackle the problem, Google has released a desktop gadget for Google Docs that functions much like the gadget in Gmail. Only, this one functions direct from the desktop, making the documents easily and quickly accessible. This gadget can work with both the Windows and Linux versions of the Google Desktop"

Zikmu: Phillipe Starck Zikmu Speakers Belong in the Living Rooms of Those With Inscrutable Accents


Zikmu: Phillipe Starck Zikmu Speakers Belong in the Living Rooms of Those With Inscrutable Accents: "On some level, I know that these minimalistic wireless speakers by Phillipe Starck are classy works of art. But when I look at them, all I can think about is Nuni and Nooni Schoener.
Zikmu, a collaboration between speaker company Parrot and noted super designer Phillipe Starck, is a set of 2.5 feet tall speakers that use Bluetooth to communicate with each other. They apparently broadcast sound 360° arround the room thanks to Parrot's NXT technology, which uses an extra-flat mebrane to create small-scale vibrations across the speakers' entire surface."
