02/06/2012, “You’ve got mail” has proved to be one of the more popular notifications, whether it is said out aloud, or comes in the form of a special beep or ding on your smartphone, tablet, desktop or notebook. Well, that is nice and good, but how about taking things a little bit further if you absolutely cannot bear to not reply an email (or check it out) even when you are […]

Called the InvaderCade, this contraption turns your lovely tablet into a screen for you to blast aliens with.

06/15/2009, And in a big way, to boot. Not only does this classic title arrive in a super huge display, it boasts multitouch capability as well. The display itself is a mammoth 4m x 6m in size and was recently paraded at Offf Oeiras 2009.
