Samsung to organize the World’s biggest Dodgeball Game

On the 12th of May in New York City something pretty unusual is going to happen.
Get prepared to see what sport and an electronic worldwide company could do together.

Samsung is organising the biggest game of Dodgeball ever. Samsung’s aim here is to set the Guinness World Record for the largest game. For this event there will be 1,500 dodgeball players but also 600 balls on hand to be used in the record-setting game. Players will have the opportunity to win Samsung Reality new phones and gift cards. This event has obviously been created to launch ‘The Reality’ Samsung’s new social networking phone. It’s quite an impressive advertising campaign.
Why did the company choose Dodgeball as a sport though? Maybe they fought it would be funnier and it would gather more people.

If you want to be part of the event, it’s never too late, you can RSVP through it’s Facebook page by clicking the Dodgeball tab and inputting all of your information. You can also stay updated via the hash tag #dodgethis through Twitter.

The first 3D TV has arrived in the UK

Here it is, it has arrived quicker than expected but the first 3D TV has arrived in the UK!

The TV is made by Samsung who has mastered the art of ‘edge LED backlighting’ to create the 7000 series which is the first wave of 3D. It only weighs 17kg and its size is 109.2 (w)x 2.7 (d)x 65.3 (h) cm.
With this 3D mode, the image seems just a tad softer than watching in regular HD, but you are in fact seeing separate 1080p images flashed alternately to each eye as the active shutter glasses open and block each lens in time with flicker of the screen. It’s this ability to show an uncompromised 3D image that makes Full HD 3D watchable and convincingly three-dimesional. The 3D glasses cost £129 each and obviously everyone will need to be wearing them, so this it’s quite a smart marketing move but you do get two pairs with the TV.

So for £2000 this lovely TV of the future could be yours!
