News: Logitech G Introduces Its Best Gaming Mouse Yet With Professional-Grade Wireless, the G900 Chaos Spectrum.

Logitech recently announced its best gaming mouse yet, the Logitech® G900 Chaos Spectrum™.

The new professional-grade wireless gaming mouse features industry-leading wireless technology, an advanced optical gaming sensor, a flexible ambidextrous design, customizable lighting, mechanical pivot button design and lightweight construction, for maximum performance and comfort over long gameplay sessions. The Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum delivers a lag-free wireless performance and long battery life that’s trusted by professional eSports gamers.

*****

With a one-millisecond report rate, and highly optimized 2.4GHz wireless connection, the Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum outperforms both wireless and wired competitors. Thanks in part to the exclusive clock-tuning technology that significantly reduces power consumption, you can play continuously for 32 hours — an entire competition weekend — on a single charge (24 hours with default lighting). When you’re running low on power, the Logitech Gaming Software (LGS) Battery Assistant will notify you. There’s no need to stop playing to recharge as the mouse seamlessly switches between wireless and wired modes when plugged in. Full charge from empty only takes about two hours, you’re never attached to the cord for long.

The Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum features the PMW3366, Logitech’s state-of-the-art optical gaming sensor with our exclusive clock-tuning technology. Widely accepted by enthusiasts and professionals as the best gaming mouse sensor on the market, the PMW3366 precisely interprets every hand movement onto the screen for smooth, responsive performance, even at high sensitivity. It has zero smoothing or filtering across the entire DPI range (200-12,000 DPI), delivering exceptional tracking accuracy and consistent responsiveness at any speed.

The Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum gives you the freedom to configure your mouse exactly to your preferences. Going beyond ambidextrous, the Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum can be transformed into a truly left- or right-handed mouse, using the included magnetic button covers. The mouse is constructed for a non-prescriptive grip that accommodates a variety of palm, claw and fingertip holds. Using LGS, lighting color and brightness can be programmed to match your style, system and environment from a palette of up to 16.8 million colors. Bring your mouse to life with “breathing” light patterns, or set your lighting to sleep when you aren’t using your system.

The buttons of the Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum have been engineered to deliver a crisp, clean click feel with rapid click. A metal spring tensioning system and exclusive mechanical pivoting hinges are built into the main left and right keys. This system reduces the pre-travel distance between the buttons and switches, while also minimizing the force required to click, enabling faster recovery after each click. The result is a heightened response and a consistently fast, accurate and reliable click performance.

Every component of the Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum has been optimized to reduce weight while maintaining stability. All elements of the construction have been analyzed and adjusted to remove fractions of grams, from the thin wall molding to the hollow “spoked” hyper-fast scroll wheel design. The result is a wireless gaming mouse that weighs in at 107g, making it comfortable to use over long periods and delivering quicker response to motion.

The Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum is expected to be available from April 2016 for a suggested retail price of $249.00.

News: OBS @ Coney: To Provide All Youths With Outdoor Adventure Experience

In his National Day Rally (NDR) 2015 speech, Prime Minister (PM) Lee Hsien Loong stressed the importance of adventure learning to develop a generation of young people who are confident about taking on challenges that push their limits, are resilient and able to work closely together.

Outdoor adventure education (OAE) can help our youths become future-ready by:

a) Building their confidence and resilience;
b) Enabling them to value diversity through in-depth interaction
c) Forging camaraderie through common challenging experiences; and
d) Laying a foundation for active and healthy living.

The new OBS campus at Coney Island (OBS @ Coney) will enable OBS to expand its capacity and, together with its existing campus on Pulau Ubin, provide all young Singaporeans with the opportunity to attend OBS during their upper secondary years. It will provide a common experience for all young Singaporeans.

About 14,000 students go through OBS each year. MCCY will develop OBS @ Coney by 2020. Together with OBS’ existing premises on Pulau Ubin, this will expand OBS’ capacity to provide outdoor adventure training opportunities for up to 45,000 youths every year. With good connectivity to both Pulau Ubin and mainland, the expanded OBS will be able to efficiently and effectively conduct more quality programmes (such as OBS Project IsLand-A-Hand) and expeditions around Singapore, utilising our blue and green spaces.

*****


There is a 5-Day OBS Programme for youth who are interested to experience nature / outdoor living. It will be led by an OBS Instructor and the broad outline of the 5-day camp is as follows:

  • Days 1-2: Confidence building, group socialization through personal challenge and team tasks. Activities include ropes courses, caving, abseiling and the flying fox.
  • Days 2-4: Resilience-building, self-discovery and team cohesion through challenging expedition. Expeditions could include cycling, urban trekking, rafting, sailing, rowboats and kayaking.
  • Days 4-5: Consolidation, commitment and goal setting through action planning. Activities include journal-writing, personal sharing, individual and group reflections.

The 5-day programme will also teach respect for nature and an appreciation for the need to preserve the environment for the benefit of future generations of Singaporeans.

Used to experience nature walks and camping during secondary school days and it helped take the mind of studies for that few days while learning about nature. Such initiative would help the youth these days see and experience more, than just exams and grades.
