CES 2008 Video: Westinghouse Passive 3D LCD television

is working on a gamer’s dream - a passively 3D television.  By aiming pixels in different directions, the television creates the illusion of depth thanks to the varying overlap points.  This feat is accomplished using only one screen!  The downside?  Because the pixels are aimed in different directions, the television isn’t capable of switching between 2D and 3D.

The ideal viewing spot for the television is about 1.5 meters - from further away the picture resembles that of a regular 2D television and from closer the images can be a little harder to view.

The passive 3D technology has been in development for about a year.  The display has been in development for about six months, and the whole shebang was perfected about three months ago.  Westinghouse predicts that their passive 3D display will become available first to the commercial market.

CES 2008 Video: Sparky gets tasered / Taser MP3 player

When going to one expects a rough week involving countless interviews, hour after hour of writing, and defending oneself from PR reps from round the world. One thing you don’t expect is to get the living daylights shocked out of you. First and foremost, watch the video above for a chance to see me get tasered. After all, it’s hard to pass up an opportunity to see some poor sot get tasered - particularly when they signed themself up for it (full waiver and everything).

Oh yeah, a bit of background - we didn’t go for the ‘shock treatment’ but rather went to check out Tasers new MPH or Music Playing Holster. With this faux-leather device one can carry their original, pink, or leopard skin taser in style and listen to 1GB of tunes at the same time. It doesn’t fully make sense to us, but the Taser company claims this makes it an ideal exercise companion for those jogs through the seedy underbelly of your favorite big city.

CES 2008 Video: First Pre-Show Daily Wrap-up - Our Expectations

Alright, so we arrived here in Las Vegas for late last night, and figured we’d record our first video from one of our hotel rooms. I mean, why not, right? We talk about what we expect and hope to see at this year’s show, and even equate different historical hairstyles to where we see the industry going in 2008. Yeah, we really needed to get some sleep before doing this - but hey, what’s the fun in that?

Oh, and Brenda made that hat on the plane trip over.

Bleeding Edge TV 181: PAX 2007 Wrap-Up with Gear Live and GamerAndy

Gear Live and GamerAndy are back, bringing you their final thoughts from 2007, this time bringing Bobby Blackwolf along for the ride. We go over all the things we were impressed with at PAX, along with the things that left a bad taste in our mouths. We get into a deep discussion on how even hardcore games are starting to cater to the casual gamer, and how it seems that it isn’t necessarily a good thing. Did you know that you can do almost everything in just by pushing forward on the analog stick? Where is the skill in that? If you missed the 2007 Penny Arcade Expo and love video games, this is one to watch.

Bleeding Edge 070: A Look Behind Gear Live and The Bleeding Edge - A Documentary

Here at The Bleeding Edge, there are some issues that we normally just gloss over for the sake of our reputation. What you don’t know is that Andru Edwards is a very controlling, true gadget freak who can’t move past that issue, Sparky actually knows nothing about technology and is just full of himself, Nate True sucks at fiming our show, and Jesse Ferguson has to fix everything, and is just insanely uptight. Now, it has all been revealed. Check out this episode of The Bleeding Edge, where we go behind the scenes to meet everyone who makes the show happen.
