Is THQ planning a HomeWorld 3 ??

Recently, some fans went digging for information over at fan site Relic News. And guess what they uncovered! They’ve found that THQ, who now own original Homeworld developers Relic, have picked up the rights to the series from former owners Vivendi (ie Sierra).

This isn’t confirmation that any new Homeworld titles are in the making, of course, but then they’d hardly go to all the trouble of getting the rights if they weren’t going to something with them.

Im a HuGE fan of the series, and would totally love to play a new sequel to the original game. Lets hope that news for Homeworld 3 is announced very soon 😀

3D Floating Holographic Displays: Now a reality!

Yes you are not dreaming, these displays and the technology for these diplays has been finally perfected! IO2 Technologies have developed displays under the Brand Heliodisplay, which projects any standard computer or video cable attached to the Heliodisplay system, and project video or images into mid-air.

Various models are available ranging sizes from 30″, 50″ and 100″ (diagonal) areas. The ‘i” version allows for a “virtual” touchscreen (new for December 2007). No special hardware or software is required to view images. The 30″ Heliodisplay is now only 5.9″ tall, and weighs 15lbs. The 50″ and 100″ are each only 10″ tall and weigh 28lbs, and 68lbs respectively. All afford a wide range of flexibility and options. Continue reading
