Mad Catz MLG Pro Circuit Controller Review »

Within a few quick seconds, you can switch the controller to one of three styles, thanks to the controller's ProModule system. With it, you can freely move the D-Pad and analog sticks to make your own layout, or stick with a classic Xbox 360 or PS3 layout. You can also buy additional ProModule kits in different colors, tensions, lengths, and textures.

The Pro Circuit Controller also has easily swappable, magnetic top and side plates for even more individualism. Remember that since this controller is for tournaments, teams can use these customization options to emblazon their controllers with a logo. 

For more information about the Officially Licensed Major League Gaming Pro Circuit Controller from MadCatz check after the break.

A lot of gamers have been asking for headset suggestions, so this week on Tech Junkies we've got the Roccat Kave 5.1 Headset. Primarily for PC gamers, this set will be great if you've ever played a first-person shooter and couldn't figure out where your enemies were hiding based on their footsteps. With its real 5.1 surround sound, the Kave will make sure hat type of thing never happens again.

Could it be this headset may give you the competitive edge you've been waiting for? Take a look at the video below to see everything fellow tech junkie, Rob Manuel, and I had to say about the Roccat Kave 5.1 headset.

Roccat Kave 5.1 Headset Review »

The Roccat Kave 5.1 Headset retails for $109.99. To help you stay in control, it comes with the Tip'n'Control Desktop Remote which lets you customize the overall volume of the set, as well as the volume of the center, rear, front, and bass speakers. 

The set's comfortable, with three lightweight pads, and overall I'd say it's a good alternative to your standard Steelseries, Razer, or Logitech headsets. Let us know what you think of the Roccat Kave 5.1 in the comments section.

Alienware Epic Giveaway

The Dell-owned gaming PC label Alienware is making some changes to its line of laptops to account for hardware advances in 2012 (via Engadget). The M14x, M17x, and M18x models will soon benefit from a number of new component options, including NVIDIA 600 series GPUs, PCE Express 3.0 support, a base memory offering of 6GB, and support for mSATA drives. The laptops will also be souped up with i7 processors, but not the next-gen Ivy Bridge ones.

If you're a fan of Alienware products then you may have noticed that one model number is missing from the above lineup: the M11x. The company's so-called "gaming netbook," which sports an 11-inch screen and a "binary graphics" setup that allows users to jump between high-performance and power-saving modes, is going to be discontinued, The Verge reports. According to the hardware manufacturer, the M11x just doesn't fit in with the rest of its hardware offerings anymore.

Speaking as a very happy M11x owner, I'm disappointed to hear this. It's a great piece of tech for the business-minded gamer on the go, between the small size and the binary graphics setup supporting around six hours of battery life in the power-conserving mode. Unfortunately for fans like me, the greater demand is for full-size keyboards and optical drives, two things which the M11x lacks.

Ikea Introduces Smart TV

Swedish semi-disposable furniture retailer Ikea has introduced a new smart TV. It's called the "Uppleva," a word unpronounceable in human language, and meant as a cross between a television and a piece of furniture.

The internet-compatible Uppleva features a built in Blu-Ray and DVD player, FM radio, MP3 input, hidden speakers and a wireless sub-woofer. Everything can be operated from a single remote control, and the whole shebang is absent of visible wires and other television-related eyesores. All that's missing is a built in game system, although there is extra space for a PS3 and 360.

Hologram Tupac Shakur played at Coachella last night, as part of Dr. Dre's set at the music festival. Um... hello, this is the most awesome thing I have ever seen. 

What do you think? Awesome or what? I'm not sure what kind of technology it takes to do something like this, but it's definitively amazing, and feels closer to sorcery to me than anything else. It's also NOT SAFE FOR WORK. 

Got Pebble watch

Hey, kid, wanna buy a watch? Wanna buy the best watch ever? I've got just the thing for you. The Pebble is an infinitely customizable e-paper watch that works with your Android or iPhone to change the nature of watches themselves. You can see it above, and if you don't want one yet, check out the video of the the Pebble watch in action.

Like everything cool these days, The Pebble was funded through kickstarter, and over a million bucks have been pledged to the company. Mostly in the form of pre-orders, I imagine. Speaking of, to pre-order your own Pebble watch for $99, all you need to do is visit the kickstarter page and get your Pebble watch pre-order in.

So what do you think? Are you going to be flossing a Pebble soon?

HACKERS movieAccording to a recent article in Foreign Policy magazine, the U.S. Government may begin searching through Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii consoles in search of criminals and nere-do-wells of various stripes.

The governmental types believe that easy access to your console hard-drive will allow the authorities to catch pedophiles and terrorists who use their consoles to engage in illegal activities. Privacy advocates, on the other hand, are concerned with law enforcement over-reaching and breaching privacy.

Obscure Technologies, a San Francisco-based company that performs computer forensics, has already earned a $172,250 research contract to develop ''hardware and software tools that can be used for extracting data from video-game systems'', and ''a collection of data (disk images; flash memory dumps; configuration settings) extracted from new video-game systems and used game systems purchased on the secondary market'."

Google has released an update on their augmented reality technology, Project Glass. According to the developers, they want to create a technology that should work for you, "to be there when you need it and get out of your way when you don't."

Project Glass was originally announced back in February. At the time, it was said that the glasses would have Android, pack 3G or 4G connectivity, a GPS, a low-resolution camera, a range of sensors, and cost anywhere between $250 and $600. The project is still in very early development, but Google released a  video demonstrating what Project Glass might enable you to do in the future, and holy crap is it amazing. This is the future, people! We're almost there!


"We’re sharing this information now because we want to start a conversation and learn from your valuable input. So we took a few design photos to show what this technology could look like and created a video to demonstrate what it might enable you to do," said Google on the Project Glass Google+ page.

Adam Sessler and Morgan Webb count down their favorite gaming peripherals in this video, including Seaman's microphone and the Nintendo Zapper.
