Nintendo: Two-Thirds of September Hardware Sales Were Nintendo Systems

  Nintendo: Two-Thirds of September Hardware Sales Were Nintendo Systems Switch top console in SeptemberSeptember proved to be another great month for Nintendo, with the game-maker claiming two-thirds of all hardware sales in the U.S. thanks to the Nintendo Switch, Nintendo 3DS systems and the Super Nintendo Entertainment Classic Edition, the company said this morning.

The projector will have a stereo speaker built - in , a 120-inch equivalent screen back up with 200 lumens and it will also act as a backup battery for the Nintendo Switch . I’ve included the known specs towards the bottom of this post.

We think this is a great idea, really building on the Switch's go-anywhere ethos. 

OJO measures 172 x 80 x 70mm, and resembles the games console's original dock.

It packs a four hour battery life, and is charged via microUSB (not USB-C, unfortunately). OJO also acts as a back-up power supply for the console.

The projector output is a resolution of 854 x 480 pixels at 200 lumens. That doesn't sound too impressive, but the videos shared on the brands Twitter account look pretty good, so were hopeful it'll be sufficient.

The Pixel 2 can automatically switch into do not disturb mode when you're driving

  The Pixel 2 can automatically switch into do not disturb mode when you're driving In addition to announcing two new Pixel phones this week, Google released a new app called Pixel Ambient Services. I know, it's an exciting name. This is the description for the app: "Pixel Ambient Services provides features based on local context for Pixel devices." Today Android Police spotted that Google's provided screenshots for the app feature an automatic setting for when the phones detect a user driving. You can see it below. © Provided by The Verge This screen suggests that the phone will automatically go into a do not disturb mode when someone is driving.

- A Nintendo Switch Dock With A Projector Built In ? ojo the new switch projector doc!

It’s a Nintendo Switch dock with a built - in 20,000 mAh battery so it needn’t be plugged in. It also has built - in stereo speakers, so you don’t even have to As its name implies, it’s got its own 200 lumens HD projector , so you could realistically play Switch games on the big screen, just about anywhere.

OJO boosts the Switch's audio with a dual speaker stereo system. The brand claims this will provide "a rich quality sound, both louder and fuller than the Switch’s internal speakers". 

The dock also features an auxiliary port, allowing you to connect it to an external speaker system.

To keep cool, the dock uses a vortex duct combination cooling system, with both fans and a copper radiator to keep both the projector and console cold.

As well as the audio port, OJO also features a HDMI input so it can be used with a number of other devices from tablets and smartphones to bluray players.

It sounds like a really cool idea, and we seriously hope the company is successful with its crowdfunding, and then have the ability to deliver (unlike some crowdfunded projects).

OJO is launching on Indiegogo on 24th October 2017 and, assuming everything goes to plan, will be in gamers hands by February 2018.

Google's first mobile chip is an image processor hidden in the Pixel 2 .
One thing that Google left unannounced during its Pixel 2 launch event on October 4th is being revealed today: it’s called the Pixel Visual Core, and it is Google’s first custom system-on-a-chip (SOC) for consumer products. The coolest aspects of the Pixel Visual Core might be that it’s already in Google’s devices. The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL both have it built in, but laying dormant until activation at some point “over the coming months.
