    Razer’s Project Sophia concept turns your desk into a modular computer

    Razer is no stranger to wild CES prototypes, and CES 2022 is no exception: the company revealed its new Project Sophia concept, which aims to build an entire modular desktop computer into a desk that looks like a Star Trek LCARS console come to life. Razer has had modular computer aspirations before. There was 2014’s Project Christine, a precursor to Project Sophia that imagined a desktop tower that was built out of easily swappable Jenga-like bricks. 2020’s Tomahawk took a more practical approach to that concept, based on Intel’s Element NUC designs. But Project Sophia feels like Razer’s conceptual tendencies

    This nifty gadget turns any laptop or desktop monitor into a massive iPad Pro and Stylus

    Plug the Hello X3 in the top left corner of any display (or any flat surface) and suddenly you have a stylus-capable screen that you can draw on, annotate against, and present with. Up until just 5 minutes ago, I was ready to throw a little over a grand at a new, 12.9-inch M1 iPad Pro and the Apple Pencil. I’m honestly reconsidering now after stumbling across this $120 gadget that transforms any flat surface into a stylus-friendly touchscreen.

    New Brain Implant Turns Visualized Letters into Text

    When we move, sense or speak—or do just about anything—our brain generates a specific pattern of electrical activity. And for decades, scientists have been connecting those impulses to machines, not only to understand and treat brain diseases but also to help people with disabilities. Brain-computer interfaces, or BCIs, can restore movement in people with paralysis and may help treat neurological and psychiatric diseases. The next frontier in BCIs may be things like the lowly text message; typing still poses maddeningly difficult challenges to bioengineers. A study published today in Nature reports on a brain implant that will allow people with
