About Xbox 360 Elite Systems

If you are a hardcore Xbox gamer then you may want to consider getting one of the Xbox 360 Elite Systems. By purchasing an Elite Console you are not only purchasing a state of the art gaming machine, but you are also purchasing a home media center. With an Xbox 360 console you can play your favorite DVD’s right on your Xbox 360. Most people don’t realize that all you have to do is put a DVD into the Xbox the same way that you would put a game into your Xbox. After that, you just have to use your Xbox 360 controller to select how you want to watch the DVD.

Another great part about owning an Xbox 360 Elite console is that you can watch your favorite DVD’s in HD. Most people don’t realize that each Xbox 360 console comes with standard as well as high definition cables. If you want to use your Xbox in HD mode you will have to purchase a high definition television. This investment is well worth the entertainment that you can get out of it. Watching and playing your favorite games in HD is honestly a completely difference viewing experience from a standard picture.

A major benefit of having an Xbox 360 Elite console is that you get a 120GB hard drive. This hard drive is the largest hard drive that you can have on an Xbox console. There are many advantages to having a large hard drive. Having a 120GB hard drive allows you to download and store significantly more movies, videos, and music. The best part about having this hard drive is that you can take it out of your system and bring it over to a friend’s house if they are having a party. At the party you can then watch your favorite games and DVDs.

The Xbox Live marketplace is also a great feature that you get with the purchase of an Xbox 360 elite console. The Xbox Live marketplace is a virtual marketplace that allows you to browse through hundreds of videos, movies, music and games. There are actual original Xbox games that are available to you to download onto your Xbox 360 Console. You can even rent some of your favorite movies that are in theaters directly from the marketplace. The best part about downloading these things is that they get stored right on your hard drive for your viewing pleasure.

Xbox 360 Elite Systems also come standard with a Microsoft Xbox DVD remote. This DVD remote is truly an astounding piece of equipment. It allows you to pause, fast forward, stop, and rewind DVDS with the click of a button. The DVD interface is also something that’s quite amazing. From the DVD menu you can even choose which language you want to watch your movie or DVD in. On top of that, many of the DVDs that you watch have producer narration that you can listen to as you are watching the movie.

Many gamers do not realize that each and every Xbox 360 Elite system comes with a wireless Xbox controller. Having a wireless Xbox controller is great because it allows you to sit back and relax without having to worry about lengthy wires. Other gaming consoles that are not Xbox require you to game with wired controllers. Playing with a wired controller can be an extremely dangerous thing because it forces you to sit close to the television. With an Xbox 360 wireless controller you can sit as close to the television as you want or as far away from the television as you want. You also don’t have to worry about someone tripping over a cord and knocking over your console.

Another great thing about owning an Xbox 360 Elite system is being able to play Guitar Hero. Guitar Hero is by far one of the most fun Xbox games that you can own. When you play Guitar Hero you get an actual plastic guitar that you can use to play your favorite songs. Each copy of Guitar Hero allows you to rock out to your favorite songs right from your home. It makes you feel as if you are an actual real rock star!

Owning an Xbox 360 is truly an amazing experience. Not only does it provide you with a state of the art gaming system, it also provides you with a state of the art media system. You can use this state of the art media system to watch your favorite games and movies right at home. You also get access to the Xbox Live marketplace which allows you to get access to tons of additional content for your enjoyment. The best part about owning one of the many Xbox 360 Elite Systems is that you get a 120GB massive hard drive!

SME and 3D Systems Announce Formation of Advisory Board for M.Lab21 Education Initiative


Dearborn, MI (PRWEB) August 27, 2014

– Supports 3D printing labs and advanced manufacturing curriculum in High Schools.

Facilitates continuous interface between prospective employers and technical education providers.
Revolutionizes high school industrial arts, career and technical education by delivering 21st Century Manufacturing Lab in schools.

SME and 3D Systems announced the formation of an advisory board for the collaborative M.Lab21 Initiative, composed of founding members SME, 3D Systems and key collaborator, America Makes (the National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Institute), as well as representatives and support from Intel, GE, Johnson Controls, Lockheed Martin, Deloitte and the National Institute of Standards and Technology.

The advisory committee will assist, support, provide leadership and advocate for the M.Lab21 initiative. Drawing on a wealth of expertise and resources, the advisory board will help shape this program and provide subject-matter expertise and best practices as needed.

“SME has been immersed in and supporting the additive manufacturing community for nearly 25 years, and working to accelerate the adoption of this technology across the manufacturing industry,” said Jeannine Kunz, managing director of workforce and education for SME. “We welcome the opportunity to collaborate with these industry advisors to drive awareness and education of additive manufacturing in U.S. high schools, and ultimately strengthen the next generation of the manufacturing workforce.”

M.Lab21 is a 21st Century Manufacturing Lab that will revolutionize high school industrial arts, career and technical education. Through the formation of this influential advisory board, SME and 3DS will create an integrated ecosystem of hardware, software and training programs that, together, can foster a new digital literacy and empower the next generation with digital craftsmanship skills.

Equipped with 3D scanning, development boards, design, prototyping, manufacturing and accompanying curriculum, participating schools will have the tools and resources to provide students with the necessary skills for the advanced manufacturing and design jobs of tomorrow. The advisory board will also leverage their own spheres of influence to help build communities of liked-minded organizations, schools and employers.

“M.Lab21 is the latest commitment we are making to deliver 21st century technology skills to students through our Make.Digital initiative,” said Leanne Gluck, director of social impact for 3DS. “Collaboratively, 3DS and SME invite teachers, educators, nonprofits and companies passionate about education, addressing the skills gap and advanced manufacturing workforce development to join our M.Lab21 initiative and help us drive innovation, technology and learning.”

“We believe a culture of making, personal expression and innovation is essential to keeping the U.S. on the leading edge of education and stimulating economic activity,” said Carlos Contreras, U.S. education director, Intel. “Whether challenging people to think differently or providing the technologies that can bring ideas to life, Intel supports the maker movement to encourage innovation whether in classrooms, labs or garage workshops.”

Education inquiries can be made directly to SME at M.Lab21(at)sme(dot)org.
