Vantec Nexus Multi-Function Panel
"The Nexus Multi-Function Panel was built mainly to take on some of the tasking required to re-adjust fans used on CPUs. And while that's nothing major, there are a few more handy features. For starters, there are two USB 2.0 ports up front. Plus an external Firewire plug!
The best feature is the LCD read out screen. Three different temperatures can be monitored, as well as CPU fan speed."

Holograms in Motion
This kind of interactive science is on the way, and it will be made possible by a new generation of 3-D video displays. The technology enlists the power of holograms-or reasonable facsimiles thereof-to dish up startlingly realistic images that appear to pop out of the screen. Imagine the 3-D scenes produced by the venerable View-Master toy cranked up to "11" on the reality dial. But the new 3-D video images won't require special viewing devices. Users won't have to don the headgear or eyewear that tends to be
