PSP2/NGP “Next Generation Portable”

Posted on 31 January 2011 by yizhan

Sony revealed their newest PlayStation Portable in an event at Tokyo. It was the rumored PSP2 with the codename “NGP” or Next Generation Portable.  The PSP2 has a lot of changes and said to be as powerful as the PlayStation 3.  Equipped with   a high-resolution, touch-sensitive OLED screen that’s larger than the original PSP screen, tilt-sensitive SIXAXIS controls, dual analog sticks, front and back-facing cameras, and a touch sensitive back panel. The PSP2 uses an all-new form of media storage for games, a small flash memory card that is dedicated for NGP software titles.  This card is capable of storing the full game data and other add-on contents — no more UMD (a very smart move for Sony  huh).  The PSP2 NGP should be out maybe this holiday in Japan.

Sony Atrac-Table

Posted on 16 May 2010 by yizhan

Looks like Microsoft Surface got a competition. This coming June, Sony is about to release  their latest interactive touch-screen device that was developed by AtracSys and Sony as well, the Atrac-Trable.  Well most of its feature is really much like of the Microsoft Surface but with added ability. I have only seen this tech stuff in the movie like the Minority Report and Iron Man, well  i think this time its for real.

The sony Atrac-Table is a 35inches wide multi touch-screen HD display and controllable by gestures, and equipped with two two built-in Sony ISS XCD-V60 cameras which detects motion and project the 3D object. Same as the Microsoft Surface, it also has the ability to interact what ever digital object placed over it. Much more, Sony claims that it can also determine your gender, your age, and even your emotion.  Imagine a device that can see or determine our emotion,  cool isn’t it?

Price is not available yet, but for this kind of tech stuff that really shows a big change in our technology today I think it would not be far from Microsoft Surface starting price of $12,500 or maybe higher for its additional capabilities. Well lets just wait..
