So, I posted about the pretty dope Acer’s Predator 21 X which cost a "pocket friendly" of N3.6 million and this is coming just after an MTK Gionee M2017 device was unveiled and available for sale at N1.2 million!!

I just saw another stunning PC on Misstechy which goes for about $15,000 (about N6,750,000!!!).

Razer has unveiled a new PC called "the Project Valerie" and it is set to be the world’s first automated triple display laptop!!

Mind-blowing right?
The Razer’s Project Valerie is essentially a three-headed beast of a gaming that is sure to be appreciated by gamers, programmers and hackers alike!

Each of the laptop’s 17.3inch displays rocks 4k resolution, which adds up to 12k in total (i.e 12X the resolution you get from your 1080p TV)!!!

The pixels on this device is powered by NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 GPU, producing a total resolution of 11,520 x 2,160px across the expansive triple display setup (dang!).

The 3 screens unfold automatically when you power on the device, otherwise it looks like your normal laptop when switched off with its extra screens folded in.

This amazing monster of a laptop weighs about 12lbs which is quite heavy ,(heavier than an average desktop PC).

While "Project Valerie" is still generally an idea, with time I guess we would see if Razer would come good on their promise of building what will be a stunning, mind-blowing gadget.

What do you think of this monster gadget?

This PC also features Tobii eye tracking, dual Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 graphic cards in SLI mode, and an overclockable 7th Generation Intel Core i7-7820HK processor!!

The device packs a 64GB of DDR4-2400 memory, up to four 512GB solid-state drives in RAID configuration (including 2 NVMe PCIe SSDs, which about 5X faster than SATA SSDs) and a 7200 RPM hard drive with up to a 2TB capacity!!!

A gamers' paradise!

Finally, the system carries five fans and nine heat pipes onboard to keep it cool and features a mechanical keyboard, four speakers and two subwoofers!!!
Simply mindblowing!!!

About the design, the PC does not look quite beautiful or sexy but who need beauty and sexy with the awesomeness the Acer Predator 21 X offers, right?


So if you have any N3,600,000 that you are not using, you should get this beast of a PC.
I know I would!!!

Tech gadget addiction is a common disease in this date and age, especially among teens, youths and middle aged men between the ages of 15-35 years.

These addiction with tech gadgets (mostly smartphones and PCs) have health consequences, some of which I have written on in a previous post.

On this post, I will be touching on how bright light from our tech/electronic gadgets affect our sleep/sleep pattern and in extension our health.

Image result for staring at a computer at night image

While it is advisable to keep your gadgets off before going to bed, people in spite of this advice make use of their devices before going to bed (I am notoriously guilty of this too!!!), with information according to the National Sleep Foundation having a massive 95% of people making use of their tech gadgets right before going to sleep daily (damning the consequences!).

However, the health repercussions remains serious with health risks such as "Tech neck" being a by product of gadget addiction.

Below are additional health risks that tech gadgets addiction pose:

Effects Of Gadgets Addiction On Sleep

Artificial light from the electronic devices screws up with the sleep-promoting chemicals in the brain. 
Exposure to this light significantly decreases the hormone melatonin in the body, a hormone that is responsible for regulating internal clock and maintaining the sleep cycle.

Image result for staring at a computer at night image

A study has found that if an individual is exposed to bright mobile or tablet screen for two hours or more, the level of melatonin in the body decreases by up to 22%. 
This reduction in levels of melatonin leads to health issues such as diabetes, sleep disturbance, obesity and other disorders.

Health Effect Of Blue Light

The blue light emitted by electronic gadgets (mostly smartphones, tablets, PCs etc) have a negative impact on  the quality and quantity of sleep you get. 

Blue light suppresses the brain’s melatonin and affects your sleep, taking a step towards limiting your contact with these blue lights (e.g blue light filtering) would go a long way in keeping you away from health disorders.

Blue light sends alerts to our brain, essentially sending the message to hold out on sleeping.
According to experts the human eye has about 30,000 cells, which react to the wavelength of blue light.

Blue light conventionally runs in 460 nanometer range of light spectrum. This light spectrum hits the cells of the brain and sends the message to brain’s suprachiasmatic nucleus asking it to reduce the production of melatonin.

Blue light filtering can be achieved with the use of some online apps, with some other mobile app such as Twitter offering a "night mode" option to limit user's contact with blue light.

Other alternative options are the use of light bulbs glasses, glasses etc to reduce the direct contact of blue light from your eyes.

Staring at a screen for long periods causes sleep disruptions which in turn leads to serious health consequences such as obesity, heart attack, type-2 diabetes and cancer as well as emotion related issues such as moodiness, depression, anxiety and increased chances of accidents.

Health Effect Of Blue Light On Human Eyes

The excessive use of smartphones can cause eyes diseases such as cataract and even blindness. LED light bulbs can cause more damage than your mobile phone. 
The continuous exposure can suppress the melatonin and can even shorten the melatonin duration by approximately 90 minutes.

If you do have to make use of your your gadgets (work related or emergency). it is advisable to keep a warm light bulb around which emits less blue light and lessens the effect of direct contact of  blue light to the eyes.

Alternatively, since light/light bulbs can possible have an impact on the circadian rhythm and also affect the human skin ala the Sun.
Wearing a hat or appropriate sun glasses (depending of your room light) so as to avoid the continuous exposure to the blue light.

Blue light is not all bad, the Sun has a lot of blue light which is generally connected with increased level of alertness.

Picture and video based social networking platform Instagram has officially launched an app for PCs (Windows 10 PCs specifically).
Image result
Previously, PC users access Instagram through the Instagram webpage or other 3rd party apps but now you can upload images and 60 second videos directly to Instagram from your PC multimedia folders.
PC users using the official Instagram app also get
notifications, chat via Instagram Direct, and of course use Stories, Search, Explore, Profile, and Feed.
The Windows 10 PC Instagram app however has some bugs as it crashes when you try to add a Story, especially if you’re using a device that has no backward-facing camera.
Hopefully Instagram fixes the bug soon, however you can still enjoy Instagram basic features.
