One disclaimer - it&rsquo;s a small mouse, meant mainly to navigate and control your TV or the Razer Forge TV, so mannish hands will struggle with its petite nature.</p> <p dir="ltr">The keyboard, at first glance, seems odd, and that&rsquo;s because there&rsquo;s a foldable platform for the mouse to land on. The hinge is solid and tight, and once unfolded, the platform is locked quite securely in its place.</p> <p>But it&rsquo;s more than just another piece of plastic for the mouse to slide across - it&rsquo;s also magnetic. It&rsquo;s another contradictory situation - how do you use a mouse if a magnet locks it down? Truth is, it doesn&rsquo;t. The magnet is only strong enough to keep the mouse from sliding off, and when we moved the mouse around, it was an effortless affair as the mouse&rsquo;s sensitivity is sufficient for quick swipes and clicks across the interface.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="567" height="425" title="CES 2015: Razer Turret hands-on" alt="CES 2015: Razer Turret hands-on" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Razer%20Turret%2003.jpg?1420870512" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="1200" height="650" title="CES 2015: Razer Turret hands-on" alt="CES 2015: Razer Turret hands-on" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/razer-turret%20%281%29.png?1420870512" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Keyboard warrior </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p dir="ltr">The experience is quite similar for all chiclet keyboards - silent, quick touch typing and relatively easy to get used to. Width-wise, it&rsquo;s not as wide as your usual laptop or full-sized keyboards, but for basic typing, it&rsquo;ll do nicely.</p> <p dir="ltr">Dedicated Android keys are included on the keyboard&rsquo;s map, which makes sense since it&rsquo;s built to work with the Razer Forge TV, powered by Google&rsquo;s Android TV. The keyboard&rsquo;s anti-ghosting technology makes it great for multiple keypresses, but it&rsquo;s highly unlikely for you to do that unless you&rsquo;re playing streamed games via the Razer Forge TV.</p> <p dir="ltr">Battery life for the keyboard is rated at up to four months of continuous usage, while the mouse is pegged at 40 hours of uninterrupted swiping. Still, the ease of plugging the peripherals back to the dock makes it unnecessary to worry about the battery.

But Razer is already back at it with the Nabu X, a simpler and cheaper fitness tracker that has the same intriguing social elements built in.</p> <p class="p1">Unlike the pricier model, the Nabu X lacks an OLED display - instead, it uses vibrations and three small lights to alert you to notifications from a paired iPhone or Android smartphone. It&rsquo;ll also track your steps taken, distance walked, and hours slept, and the one-size-fits-all band (available in white or black) can be easily adjusted to fit your wrist.</p> <p class="p1">But while the Nabu X loses the screen, it still has the ability to communicate with other Nabu devices (of all kinds) - letting you high-five to share social media info, or compare activity stats. And it does so at half the price, as the Nabu X sells for &euro;49.99. It&rsquo;ll launch on Razer&rsquo;s website on 13 January (and members of the Insider forum, at least U.S. ones, can get it for just $19.99 at first) before becoming widely available later this spring.</p> <p class="p1">[Source: <a href="http://www.razerzone.com/nabu-x">Razer</a>]</p> <p class="p1"><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/razer/ces-2014/part-smartwatch-part-fitness-band-razer-enters-wearables-race-nabu/news">Part smartwatch, part fitness band: Razer enters the wearables race with the Nabu</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Marvel’s Ant-Man trailer </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p class="p1">Paul Rudd starring in a Marvel superhero movie sounds like a rollicking good time, but there&rsquo;s something missing from this first look at the upcoming <em>Ant-Man</em>.

Such tracks will be available for all 13 episodes of the season, and since the audio cues are likely baked into the content, it stands to reason that you can probably use the Hue functionality even if you&rsquo;re not watching live on SyFy.</p> <p class="p1">[Source: <a href="http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20150105006323/en/Syfy-Philips-Pioneer-World-TV-Entertainment-12#.VKzLaIrF8ww">Business Wire</a>]</p> <p class="p2"><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/ces-2015/ces-2015-misfit-bolt-lightbulb-will-shine-every-colour-under-sun/news">CES 2015: Misfit Bolt lightbulb will shine every colour under the sun</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="video-wrapper youtube-player-wrapper"> <iframe width="640" height="385" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/bi4AtvfXlUA" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> http://www.stuff.tv/hue/ces-2015/fully-charged-razer-s-entry-level-nabu-x-fitness-tracker-marvel-s-first-ant-man-trailer#comments CES 2015 Film and TV Headphones Health and fitness Hue Philips Razer Wed, 07 Jan 2015 07:30:00 +0000 Andrew Hayward 1456922 at http://www.stuff.tv CES 2015: Razer Forge TV is an Android TV-powered microconsole that also streams games from your PC http://www.stuff.tv/android/ces-2015-razer-forge-tv-android-tv-powered-microconsole-also-streams-games-your-pc/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Is this the dream pairing of a media centre and a versatile gaming box? </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-enable-hero"> <div class="field-label">Enable hero:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Enable full width image </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Razer Forge TV" alt="Razer Forge TV" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/razer-forge-tv.png?1421668125" /> </div> </div> </div> <p class="p1">Razer isn&rsquo;t just getting into the virtual reality market with its <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/razer/ces-2015/ces-2015-razer-reveals-open-source-virtual-reality-platform-and-headset-standardize-v">OSVR platform and headset</a> - it&rsquo;s also set to deliver a tiny TV-connected console that plays both Android titles and games via your PC.</p> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/users/andrew-hayward" title="View user profile.">Andrew Hayward</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p class="p1">However, the Forge TV will not feature PC game streaming right out of the gate.

It&rsquo;s not an operating system or even a commercial-leaning product, but rather an attempt to find common ground between all of the other headsets, software, and game engines being created for VR experiences.</p> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/users/andrew-hayward" title="View user profile.">Andrew Hayward</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p class="p1">To help developers get into VR development, Razer is preparing the OSVR Hacker Development Kit, a low-cost virtual reality headset that&rsquo;s easily modified and tweaked to experiment with new hardware and other features. You&rsquo;ll be able to buy it for US$199.99&nbsp;(about &pound;132)&nbsp;come June, and it sounds pretty capable, with a 5.5in 1080x1920 display (at 401 ppi) and distortion-minimizing optics.</p> <p class="p1">But if you&rsquo;d rather just make your own, the OSVR group will offer up the headset plans free of charge. You can 3D-print some components and purchase others to craft your own custom version, with registered developers able to grab the details now from <a href="http://www.osvr.com/">OSVR&rsquo;s website</a>.</p> <p class="p1">OSVR currently runs on Windows, Android, and Linux, supports game engines like Unity 3D and Unreal Engine 4, and works with motion-sensing peripherals and cameras. In other words, it&rsquo;s here to let savvy creators design the VR experiences of their dreams, whatever that might look like.

And because Razer has made the Nabu available as an open development platform, we wouldn&#39;t be surprised if some enterprising app developer came up with a dating app specifically for the Nabu.</p> <p>Apparently the Nabu will be released in the next couple of months, and should be priced at a minimal US$50.

target="_self">Alienware M11x</a>, the Razer Blade is thinner than a dime, measuring a mere 0.66in.</p> <p>Its 14in 1600x900 screen should show off games powered by Nvidia's brand new mighty GEForce GTX 765M rather nicely, while Intel's latest generation Haswell processor and 8GB of RAM will keep everything ticking along at blistering speed.</p> <p>A variety of SSD drives are available as standard and a hefty 70Wh battery means that it'll last longer than previous gaming laptops, especially when combined with Intel and Nvidia's newer, more power efficient silicon.</p> <p>Razer's performed a frankly mind-boggling feat in cramming all that tech into the Blade's slender frame – but if you're looking for something a little bigger then there's also a refresh to the 17in Razer Blade Pro.</p> <p>The Razer Blade Pro uses the same processor and graphics card as its smaller brother, coupled with a slightly bigger battery for larger-screened portable gaming experience – although it's obviously not as thin.</p> <p>The Razer Blade Pro's 17in display also offers a full 1920x1080 resolution while the extra room houses Razer's Switch Blade interface which consists of a handy secondary LCD trackpad for tonnes of extra customisable on-screen controls.</p> <p>While there's no word on UK pricing or availability at the moment, it'll hit US shelves by August, with the Pro starting at US$2300 and the 14in Blade costing US$1800.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video
