I positively drooled on my desk this morning when I saw this video. I don’t really need it, as I only play at home…but it’s just so freakin cool that I want one immediately. I love the LCD keyboard which can switch between UI and keyboard for chat. Such a gorgeous, gorgeous thing.
Some of the other gorgeous kit that I lust after in my sweaty little geek’s heart is:
The iPad. I’m not an Apple person. I admit that they make pretty, mainly problem-free products, but I have this kind of stupid geek pride that I work with Windows machines and am forced to be technical enough to get all grubby in the depths of the sometimes fragile, usually infuriating operating system. I’m not a ponytail. But still…but still…god, I want an iPad. Just because it’s beautiful. I have no reason whatsoever to have one, but I want one all the same.
The second object of desire is the Wacom Cintiq 21UX. I have to have this, as soon as I taken on a freelance project that will pay for it. It’s very, very expensive. But I need one, I can’t start one of my big projects without one. I have one of the older Wacom tablets, of course, but I’ve always had a disconnect with trying to draw on the tablet while watching the PC screen. It disrupts the flow.
It will be mine. Oh, yes, it will be mine.
