The actual product development is almost completed and this next generation of ultra-fast OCZ flash drives will be available in Q3.
Neural Impulse Actuator
OCZ will be showcasing the latest prototype of the Neural Impulse Actuator which takes the first steps towards the full integration of central and peripheral nerve activity into controlling personal computers. OCZ is implementing this pioneering technology in an upcoming product that addresses gaming applications and will be demonstrated at Computex. The first product will allow users to control PC games without the use of a keyboard and minimal use of a mouse. Each of the Actuator's 11 signals can be assigned to a specific keystroke on the keyboard or a mouse button; consequentially, gamers can run, jump, and fire faster without "lifting a finger"!
OCZ will be exhibiting the first live system cooled with the unique OCZ HydroJet, a self contained liquid CPU cooler that offloads heat more efficiently than conventional air cooling solutions. The HydroJet was developed to make it easier than ever before for consumers to take advantage of the benefits of liquid cooling ."OCZ and PC Power & Cooling are both technology leaders that share a common passion for delivering premium solutions to consumers," said Ryan Petersen, CEO of OCZ Technology Group. "By bringing these two established companies together we are able to leverage the strengths of each organization and accelerate the development of cutting edge products for a variety of markets. We believe that collectively OCZ and PC Power & Cooling will build on our combined heritage to revolutionize high end computing."
