The etch-a-sketch from beyond

Ever heard of Liquid Crystal Paper? No? Well, neither had I but the perks of this job include learning about new things. If e-ink was a display’s best attempt at resembling print on paper, LCP (Liquid Crystal Paper) is the closest thing to the digital world recreating the sketching-on-paper experience. Blackboard, the only product to use LCP technology is much like those magnetic sketchpads, but redesigned for real-world applications. Built with a stylus, a good contrast ratio, and a translucent design, the Blackboard can be used for taking notes, tracing, or sketching diagrams. The translucent pad comes with template grids you can place behind it to turn it into a ruled notebook, a dotted graph paper, or a plain sketcbook. You can even place the Blackboard directly on screens and sketch away. Its tinted translucent surface dims the screen behind it, but keeps everything visible, allowing it to act like a big electronic tracing paper.

The Blackboard comes with a stylus that allows you to draw and erase your work. You can even use a clear-all button on the blackboard to erase the canvas. All this happens without a battery, letting your Blackboard be as handy and readily available as a piece of paper. Plus, Blackboard even ships with a mobile app that allows you to scan, document, edit, and share your work!

Epic Life-size Iron Man Contains a Working PC

I’ve seen some pretty amazing case mods over the years, but this life-size Iron Man PC might just be the most incredible PC build yet. Pro system builder Jengki Wmp of World Media Plus created this life-size sculpture of Iron Man in his Mk. 45 armor, which also happens to double as a high-end gaming PC.

The system houses an MSI X99A Xpower Gaming Titanium motherboard, an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card with 8GB, an Intel Core i7-5820K CPU, speedy ZADAK511 Shield 3000MHz DDR4 memory, a 240GB ZADAK511 Shield SSD, and a 600W Thermaltake Toughpower PSU. The whole thing is water-cooled using a Thermaltake system. It makes me wonder if Tony Stark’s Arc Reactor would last longer if it were water-cooled, or if it would just electrocute him.

Of course, what makes this system so awesome isn’t the computer, but the incredible, detailed sculpting, with super-shiny red and gold armor, and a slick light-up interior so you can see all the computer components. The rainbow-illuminated cooling fans in Iron Man’s back are a nice touch too.

Amazing build, Jengki. I can’t imagine how much time and effort it took to create this thing, but you deserve all of the awards they throw your way.
