Y Axis Inverter team here, though if I've got an old 3D game that's stuck with regular Y Axis I can get used to it after a while.

I like this format better:
Seat of Power: the computer workstation for the person with everything
The $21,500 Emperor 1510 LX rotates, tilts, talks, and comes with a cupholder.

MWE Lab's Emperor 1510 LX—don't call it a chair.

Science fiction is filled with cherished seats of power, workstations that put the universe a finger-touch or a mere thought away. Darth Vader had his meditation pod, the Engineers of Prometheus had their womb-like control stations, and Captain Kirk has the Captain's Chair. But no real-life workstation has quite measured up to these fictional seats of power in the way that Martin Carpentier's Emperor workstations have.

The latest "modern working environment" from Carpentier's Quebec City-based MWE Lab is the Emperor 1510 LX. With a retractable monitor stand that can support up to five monitors (three 27-inch and two 19-inch), a reclining seat with thigh rest, a Bose sound system, and Italian leather upholstery, the Emperor 1510 LX looks more like a futuristic vehicle than a workstation. And it's priced like a vehicle, too—it can soon be yours for the low, low price of $21,500.

Nintendo PlayStation: Ultra-rare prototype sells for £230,000:
The only "Nintendo PlayStation" ever publicly auctioned has sold for $300,000 (£230,700).

The ultra-rare prototype was the offspring of a short-lived collaboration between Nintendo and Sony, and was supposed to add CD-ROM support to the Super Nintendo.

Sony went on to create its own wildly successful PlayStation brand.

Heritage Auctions said it might be the last remaining Nintendo prototype, as the others were probably destroyed.

Mr Diebold purchased several boxes in an auction when his employer, Advanta, went under.

He once said in an interview he had been buying some of the company's dinner plates and cutlery - but the lot contained other boxes, including the ultra-rare game console.

He paid $75 for everything.

https://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2020/0 ... bandwidth/
Over the coming weeks and months, you may find some of your games are downloading slower than usual. That’s because Akamai, a global server host used by a number of gaming companies, is starting to throttle video downloads in certain places at key times to make sure bandwidth is available particularly for healthcare workers.
