The development of PC display technologies over the last 30 years has taken us through many chapters: from IBM, the creator of the IBM PC, pioneering color display technologies (and ceding development to third-parties ATI, 3dfx, and nVidia); to the quest to provide both sharp text and colorful graphics; through the ever-increasing size of displays; to LCD flat panels overtaking TV-type CRTs; the move to 3D graphics rendering and, currently, to 3D viewing. Here's a brief history of these and other milestones in PC graphics history.
Hercules wants you to tap into your inner DJ Jazzy Jeff with its new DJ Console line, the DJ Console 4-Mx. Only this one's far more high-tech than anything the old-school rapper might have used.
The DJ Console 4-Mx sports a pair of large jog wheels, both of which come equipped with a touch sensor. There's also a built-in audio interface that purportedly makes it a breeze hook up your existing audio gear, as well as the ability to control two or four virtual decks.
Other features include a backlit indicator on each jog wheel, sturdy design, customizable controls, four RCA connectors, four mono jack connectors, and one stero jack connector.
You'll want to line up some paying gigs before picking this up -- it will sell for $450 starting November 22, 2010.
