Make Shark Week A Bit More Adventurous

Tuesday, August 2nd, 2011

In honor of Shark Week on the Discovery Channel, I’ve comprised a list of of products we sell at Abt that can help you on all your underwater adventures.

Hamilton Watch known for their fine American craftsmanship has a watch for those underwater swimmers.  The  Khaki Scuba watch is a great, water resistant watch for those that like to swim in the deeper waters.  You can keep time and stay stylish in the deep blue.

While not water proof, the Contour Wearable Camera will allow you to take great 1080p video from any location out on the ocean.  You can strap the camera to the front, top or back of the boat, and even on your life vest for great oceanic images all while on the safety of your boat.

If you prefer to be more adventurous, the new line of Sony Cyber-Shot digital cameras are water proof up to 16 feet.  That may not sound like much, but you can take some great photos of corral reefs and maybe even sharks, because remember, they can even attack you in 3 feet of water.  Happy shooting!

3D Playstation 3 Games Now Available

Friday, June 11th, 2010

Today is a big day for Sony Playstation 3 owners and anyone who is planning to buy one. For the first time ever, PS3 is offering 3D games. The good news was revealed yesterday in Culver City, CA at conference focusing on the latest 3D technology.

Some of Sony’s top executives watched a presentation in 3D featuring 3D content from ESPN, the Discovery Channel, and Sony’s internal divisions. Some of the content included soon-to-be released 3D movies like Men in Black III, 3D Blu-ray movie content like Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, and some 3D video games like Gran Turismo 5, WipEout and MLB The Show 10.

Sony’s own, CEO and President, Sir Howard Stringer, commented on the quality of 3D on PS3, “When it comes to good versus mediocre 3D, you know the difference, Sony knows the difference. Good 3D is immersive, not jarring. It fuels the imagination and is easy to watch.”

If you are planning to purchase a new 3D or 3D-ready TV, now just might be the time. With the purchase of a Sony Bravia 3D TV, Sony is giving you four, 3D PS3 games and demos (rumored to be Super Stardust HD, WipEout HD, Pain, as well as the demo version of MotorStorm Pacific Rift); in addition, if you choose to register your TV, you will get a bonus voucher for two Blu-ray DVDs. The new Bravias are due to hit Abt’s shelves in July, so check back for more information on eligible 3D models and pricing.
