Razer Project Christine

Keeping a PC up-to-date takes some technical knowledge to not make a mess of it, so Razer’s vision with Project Christine is to make ramping up the processing power or increasing memory something anyone can do.

The dark, beautiful base tower will let users simply plug in different components like the motherboard and storage drives when they need to upgrade. There’s no wiring involved and the PC also has a liquid cooling system and noise cancellation.

Razer says it has working prototypes already waiting in the wings and could offer a subscription service to make sure you have the latest components. It’s not the first innovative idea Razer has dreamt up and surely won’t be the last. Maybe, just maybe this one could be crazy enough to work.

I like the last one, can see great possibilities for helping people cook something new and make sure everything is ready when it should, prompting you when you need to do something.

This has to be the most ludicrus idea from Whirlpool yet! This even tops their not talked about Polara Fridge/Range. Look at the realestate that it consumes and there is only 2 puny induction elements. Don't know about you but if I purchase a cooking device it's purpose will be to actually cook NOT Twit or Face.

Guaranteed to be a top seller amongst the iTwit/iDiot (shiney, shiney, must have new shiney) crowd.

As a trained chef that last one kinda goes completely against one of my favourite things about cooking. I don't want my phone with the damn internet on showing me tons of info. I want to make a meal and go back to something more basic. Technology has no place in the kitchen unless it heats, blends or helps physically make the meal!

Isn't a touchscreen hob absolutely screaming for trouble?
