postheadericon Veho’s Mimi all-in-one HTPC controller attempts to be a gamepad, looks overwhelming

So you’ve done it. You’ve bought a top-of-the line computer and turned your once-scary basement into the home theater of your dreams. But, since the HTPC is well, a computer, you’re probably still using the age-old mouse and keyboard combo. Veho, a company that once claimed to have the world’s smallest camcorder, recently announced a device called the “Mimi wifi Keyboard & Air Mouse with game controller.” A long name indeed, but suitable considering the number of buttons found on this Xbox 360 gamepad lookalike. It’s got everything you’d expect in an all-in-one computer-controlling unit — including a motion sensor to control the mouse, separate buttons for left- and right-clicking and a range of around 33 feet. The controller is compatible with both Windows and Mac via a USB dongle, but the customizable buttons will only work on a Microsoft machine. If you’re ready to take computing and gaming, along with your dignity, to a whole new level, hit up the source link to drop around 150 bones (£90) for this hybrid gadget.

postheadericon Elgato and OWC hawk upgraded Mac Mini HTPC bundles: Blu-ray burner, 12TB, TV tuner

Simmer down, son — neither Elgato nor Other World Computing are actually shoving 12TB of hard drive space within a 2010 Mac Mini, but if you order one of their new bundles, you’ll definitely end up with as much. OWC is now selling pre-pimped Mac Mini machines, complete with bolstered storage options, an internal Blu-ray burner, Elgato’s EyeTV Hybrid tuner (or HD DVR), more RAM than usual and an Apple Remote. The company plans to offer both the 2.4GHz and 2.66GHz Core 2 Duo systems, and it swears up and down that the machine will arrive preconfigured and ready to rock your home theater. The addition of a Mercury Elite-AL Pro Qx2 4-bay storage solution enables you to keep even a vast library of digital content nearby, but there’s no telling how much the outfit will charge for such a luxury. Hit the source link if you’re scrounging for details, but don’t expect pricing or an order button just yet.
