Gefen's New Matrix Switcher for HDMI Offers Cross Point Integration of High Definition Sources and Displays
Nvidia's tiny 1080p capable ION platform made its big debut in dozens of products at this years Computex2009. Showing just what this small, low powered platform is capable of ECS, a Taiwainese computer manufacturer, crammed an Intel Atom 230 system using Nvidia's Ion for graphics, a 2.5-inch HDD of unspecified capacity, a Blu-ray drive, 1GB of RAM and HDMI out inside a small chinsese vase. The ports are all located on bottom and the drive pops out from the middle of the vase. No idea yet if this is just a concept or actual product.

Kef's Concept Blade speaker took over three years to develop and although the unit is a 'one off' demonstration speaker the research concepts and technologies that it embodies will surely trickle down to the rest of the KEF lineup. The speaker takes KEF's familiar Uni-Q array concept (where a tweeter is positioned coaxially within a midrange or mid-bass driver, with the drivers sharing the same "acoustic centers") to a much higher level. In essence, Concept Blade is designed to behave as if the entire loudspeaker has become a giant, full-range Uni-Q array. The Concept Blade is a 10th-generation forward-firing Uni-Q array. KEF then surrounds that array with four side-firing 10-inch bass drivers positioned symmetrically around the Uni-Q array. Together, the four bass drivers share the same combined acoustic center as the front-firing Uni-Q array, essentially become part of it. The cabinet itself features a curved-wall enclosure made of a carbon fiber/balsa wood composite. The compound curves of the Concept Blade enclosure are said to give the cabinet much greater rigidity and resistance to resonance than conventional flat-wall enclosures. A video demonstration of the tecnology can be found at Kef's website.
