Scintle is a very new company with a very cool product that deals with servers and the way they are rented. I will let Andrew explain it to you further.

SteelPad was on hand showing off their mouse pads and headphones. This booth was always jam packed and luckily I was able to snap this pic early one morning before the crowds arrived.


Texas Instruments

A picture is worth a thousand words. See the look on these gamers faces? If you need me to decode, they are saying "WOW!"

To the naked eye, this is what you see; a dual image that isn't very pleasant on the eyes. Once you put on the glasses, your view changes. This is called DualView Technology and it is in the prototype stage at Texas Instruments. If I had an award for the best soon to be released product of QuakeCon, this would be it.



I was able to actually get the effect to work on camera. Keep in mind that you are looking at highly compressed YouTube video and hopefully TI shows DualView off at CES next year and we will bring a HD camcorder to get the full effect.
