Is This the End of Car Ownership?

Quoted |

“I like the freedom to go wherever I want whenever I want without waiting a half hour for Lyft to pick me up and charge me $25 each way just to get to the supermarket. Did I mention the waiting? Google, Lyft, and Uber want everyone to give up their cars so they can make money, but the freedom, cost savings, and convenience for me outweighs anything they can offer. So, no, I will never give up my car.” – Dr. Tim Lynch, North Quincy, MA

45 hospital and healthcare executives outline the hospital of the future

Beckers Hospital Review  | Laura Dyrda  | July 17, 2017

Tim Lynch, PhD. Psychsoftpc (Quincy, Mass.): "Technology will play a big part in the treatment of patients. Things that we are seeing now, such as virtual reality, augmented reality, 3D printing, even 4K displays, will be pervasive in the hospital of the future. All this will require even more computing power, which we are also seeing now with the new Intel Core X series CPUs, which currently have a 10 Core 20 thread Processor and will go up to an 18 Core36 thread CPU by years end. This is the equivalent of having 36 computers in one processor, so we are seeing supercomputers moving to the desktop now. Of course graphics cards are also becoming more powerful allowing for better resolution and handling of VR and AR."

4 Experts’ Tips for Improving Your Small Business Cybersecurity

Capterra IT Management Blog  | June 28th, 2017 | Alec Sears in IT Management

One important part of that training should be making sure that everyone in your company knows how to craft a strong password.

Too many people are using weak and common passwords for their data, with 4% of people using “123456.” This bad practice could be putting your company at risk.

Dr. Tim Lynch of Psychsoftpc suggests that crafting better passwords can be as simple as “using a phrase with special characters rather than just a single word. For example, ‘All!Happy!Families!’ rather than ‘snoopy.'”

Make sure your employees also know, once they’ve developed strong passwords, don’t give them out to just anyone. If you need to give guests access to your Wi-Fi, create a separate guest network. As Lynch says, this means “your internal business network remains secure and you don’t have to share passwords with strangers.” Lynch also emphasizes that no one should ever share passwords through nonsecure means. “Just because someone says she is from IT doesn’t mean she is,” Lynch adds. “Never give out any passwords over the phone or through email.”

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I received my Ph.D. in Psychology of Computers and Intelligent Machines from Boston University. Shortly thereafter, Omni Magazine named me the first Robopsychologist or Computer Psychologist. I was then written up as a computer psychologist, or psychologist who studies how computer interaction effects personality and how to make computer interfaces more user friendly, in the Wall Street Journal, Psychology Today, the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Atlanta Journal and Constitution, the London Sunday Times, Computer World, and many other publications. As part of my Doctoral Dissertation on the Effects of Computer Use on Personality and Social Interaction Patterns, I created Artificial Intelligence Natural Language interviewing software which was the basis of programs used by NIH division of AIDS Research and the United Nations, among others. I was an editor for the first Journal of Psychology of Computers. I taught graduate level courses and have written numerous journal articles on Ethics in computer science, Psychology of computers and how interacting with computers and intelligent machines effects people.

I still consult on and write about these and AI related topics such as Robocars, IoT and the effects of the rapid growth of technology and AI on people and society.

Virtual, Augmented, and Mixed Reality Opens Up a World of Possibilities for Publishers

EContent Magazine | Erik J. Martin | Jun 05, 2017 | May/June 2017 Issue

Many believe VAMR technologies can radically change the way digital publishers create content for and communicate with their core audiences. Additionally, competition should be a driving force that spurs early adoption. “Creating immersive content now will put publishers ahead of the competition and give them valuable experience for future content creation,” says Tim Lynch, CEO of Psychsoftpc, which manufactures VR-ready gaming computers.

“VR content that’s shorter is better from an experience perspective, as long as it’s not too short,” says Lynch, who recommends dabbling with YouTube’s VR channel, where you can upload VR shorts and establish brand recognition. Facebook offers VR streaming capabilities on its platform too.

“Larger companies should start building their own [VAMR] teams because the initial learning phase is very important to build better products in the future.” Lynch agrees. “Yes, there is a learning curve to VR content creation, but this can be done in-house with existing staff,” Lynch says. “Like everything else, it’s the story, not the technology, that’s important. If you have good storytellers, that will translate to VR.”

5 Most Important Factors when Building your Gaming PC

Techsavvy  | By Adhip Ray | 5/26/2017

Dr Tim LynchPsychsoftpc

1. Processor: A solid, fast CPU is a must for a great Gaming PC. an Intel Core i7 or the AMD equivalent is best but a high end Intel Core i5 will do for an entry level machine.

2. Video card: You should get the best GPU that you can afford. We currently feature the NVidia GTX 1080 in our high end machines but also use the GTX 1070 and the GTX 1060 GPUs. A good gaming computer needs a good discrete video card not the video chip built into the motherboard to give excellent performance. Also, you should look for Virtual Reality ready cards that support 4K.

3. RAM: A decent system should have at least 8 gig RAM for an entry level system and 16 gig for a high end system. Gaming quality RAM is also a good idea. look for RAM with heat spreaders that are designed for performance rather than cheap generic memory found in low end desktop machines.

4. Motherboard: Good gaming machines are built around gaming motherboards these are high performance MBs designed for heavy use and performance tweaking. it should also be  a full ATX for expansion.

5. Power supply gaming machines require an excellent high wattage PSU to run all the fans, CPUs, video cards, RAM, hard drives, etc. I recommend at least a 1000 Watt PSU

6. CPU cooling this should be a cooler designed for gaming performance not the stock Intel cooler that comes with the CPU

3. Stretch that networking setup

If buying a router, Dr. Tim Lynch, CEO of Psychsoftpc, suggests 802.11ac, which can provide speeds up to 2 Gbps. If you already have an 802.11ac router, consider adding a range extender. This device can put Wi-Fi into some of the weaker spots of your home by extending or repeating the existing signal.

“You want to position it near the edge of your current signal or closer to the point where you want your signal to go,” Lynch says. “So if you want to cover the backyard, place one near the back of the house indoors.”

Getting Serious About Teen Smartphone Addiction

By Pam Baker | TechNewsWorld | May 24, 2017

Smartphones summon information and entertainment on demand. Thus, instant gratification becomes a constant expectation on and offline.

"Smartphones and computers socialize us into a pattern of communication that then carries over to our everyday non-tech communication lives," observed Psychsoftpc CEO Tim Lynch, who holds a Ph.D. in psychology of computers and intelligent machines.

"We expect answers right away, become impatient, use shorter sentences, get right to the point instead of engaging in small talk, and can ignore feelings of others in expressing ourselves," he told TechNewsWorld.

This lack of soft skills, which include people skills and critical-thinking skills, can interfere with getting a job and with getting promotions.

“AI’s usefulness hinges on the expectations and the parameters established for its goal,” Dr. Tim Lynch, CEO of Boston-based Psychsoftpc, said.

“In the oil and gas industry, AI can be used to analyze incoming data to help determine the most likely places to find resources,” Lynch explained. “It could also be used to help predict supply and demand.”

The application of Neural Net and Fuzzy Set algorithms to specific tasks like these has a decent expectation of success, Lynch stated. “The narrower the focus, the better chance of an AI succeeding,” Lynch stated.

“The adoption of Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality in social media seems likely as the year progresses. Facebook owns Oculus Rift for a reason and will make a steady push for VR use on their platform, everything to get VR into their live stream. Twitter will have to follow suit or risk becoming the next MySpace. Google+ will also move to adopt VR, because it’s Google.

Whether people truly take to VR in social media remains a question.”

How Much Digital Screen Time Is Too Much for Kids?

 Wednesday October 26, 2016 By Jacqueline Emigh For Techwalla

"Kids can learn a lot of different things on the computer, and [they] need to use it for school work. But it is important for kids to be with other kids and to spend time with the family, too," said Dr. Tim Lynch, president and founder of PsychSoftPC, a maker of high-end computers.

But Lynch thinks that phones and computers can actually promote socialization. While TV is a passive medium, he said, phones and computers are active. "Even playing games or communicating with friends through a computer or smart phone is going to have a [positive] effect on kids' socialization because [this] is an active not a passive medium," Lynch told Techwalla.

Click send on good manners

The more individuals interact with others through technology, the more attractive it becomes so it’s imperative that a concerted effort is made to interact without digital devices such as computers, cell phones, texting and tweeting, said Dr. Tim Lynch, president and CEO of Psychsoftpc, a company that develops computers for virtual reality gaming.

“Get the kids outside and have them interact with other kids, use a checkout [at the grocery store] with an actual human, use a human teller at the bank instead of the ATM, stop cutting ourselves off from people,” Lynch said.

“We also need to stop and think and read what we have written before we hit send,” he said.

The Convergence of HPC and Big Data for Enterprise

How Pokemon Go Can Help Your Business Find New Customers

It’s important for small businesses to be aware of trends and get in on the trend as it's starting, because the big guys are going to be getting in eventual

—Tim Lynch, owner, Psychsoftpc

Small firms don't need a brick and mortar store to take advantage, either.

Tim Lynch has sold high-end computers and systems to serious gamers as well as government agencies via Psychsoftpc since 1987. Today his Quincy, Massachusetts firm has about 25 employees and does about $3 to $5 million in revenue annually.

His business operates entirely online. His way of capitalizing on Pokemon Go craze involved driving traffic to his website and social media pages. Lynch says he spent a few hours creating a relatively simple 3D printout of a game badge that players could download for free, then print on a 3D printer. Such printers need to be programmed—it's not as easy as the Control-P on a basic home machine—so this download provides the information that can be sent to such a printer. Fans who don't have access to a 3D printer themselves could send it to one of many online firms that print for people.

Badges, Lynch notes, become collectables among gamers. He places the file far down on his company's home page, so users would have to scroll through information about his firm to access the file.

It's Time to Start Adapting Your Content to 4K

4KHUB by Dr Tim Lynch of Psychsoftpc

4K is now prevalent in high performance gaming computers (we at Psychsoftpc currently have all our machines capable of 4K) and many enthusiasts are watching streaming video on 4K monitors. This is a ready and steadily growing market for 4K content. People have the capability to view 4K content now and when you have something you want to use it, that's just human nature. Give a kid a hammer and suddenly everything needs hammering. The gear is in place just begging to be used. And lots of folks are watching streaming content on PCs and tablets as a matter of course avoiding the TV in the parlor. As a content creator, you want to get your stuff viewed by as many folks as possible and 4K gives you that edge.

Most current video games for PC are 4K compliant or can be made so with a simple download, so folks are getting used to viewing things in 4K and will want that to carry over to other media. Once you go 4K you don't want to go back. It is like watching standard def TV shows now that we have HD. I avoid them and you probably do too. Things are so much better in High Definition and even more so in 4K. It just ups the clarity to a whole new level. You start to see things in ways you didn't before. When folks get used to 4K they can spot the difference when viewing HD. This can lead to negative reviews of content. Folks don't know why they don't like something, they just know that they don't. The content can be Emmy worthy, but something just feels off about it. People are fickle.

Why We’re Not Ready to Relinquish Control to Self-Driving Cars

The Bold Italic May 10 2016 by Amy McElroy

Dr. Tim Lynch, expert on the Internet of Things (IoT), tells me that my stove and thermostat will communicate in the near future. But trusting one’s household appliances to make appropriate adjustments is a far cry from trusting a vehicle on the freeway to dodge obstacles at 80 miles per hour.

Lynch, who earned the first-ever PhD in the psychology of intelligent machines, cautions that “even smart computers and robots will not think like people, because we have an emotional content we apply to situations. We have gut feelings and situational memory that computers can’t access.” He also warns of hacking and privacy issues created by the tons of data that travel between self-driving cars and the companies that make them.

What Retailers Really Know About Their Customers

InformationWeek March 25, 2016 by Lisa Morgan

The use of beacons, like the use of cookies or loyalty cards, can be creepy or customer-friendly depending on how they are used. For example, Tim Lynch, CEO of high-performance computer manufacturer Psychsoftpc was haunted by an in-store system as he navigated his way through a home improvement store. Apparently, he swiped his loyalty card to take advantage of a $10 off offer, and as he walked down each aisle, he was presented with all the product purchases he'd made in a five-year period that were located in that aisle. He also received recommendations of complementary products customers commonly buy with those items.

"[The store] was tracking me and accessing the database in real time, figuring out what I bought, where I was in the store, and tracking me through the entire store. It's already gotten to the point where it's creepy," said Lynch.

Oculus VR Brings A New Reality To The Gaming Industry

the mainstream gaming public will now have an opportunity to experience VR firsthand. However, most of these potential gamers could remain on the sidelines unless they upgrade from Nintendo, PlayStation and Xbox consoles to a fully decked-out PC. That’s unless the console makers get in the PC VR game.

“Nintendo either needs to adapt or be left behind,” Tim Lynch, CEO of Psychsoftpc, tells me. “Microsoft already has its own VR/AR HoloLens in beta now for developers. And since Xbox is essentially a PC-based system, it is better equipped to meet this.”

What You Should Not Store on the Cloud

NFIB Author: Wendy Webb Date: November 26, 2015

Hey, You—You Outta the Cloud

Tim Lynch, owner and CEO of Psychsoftpc, agrees, giving some specific examples of what not to put on the cloud.

“Company financials, employee records, health records, customer credit card and banking info, and anything else you wouldn't want your competitor or the press to get hold of,” he says. “The cloud isn't as secure as folks make it out to be and many providers have been compromised so you don't want anything stored there that can cause you, your employees, your company or your customers any harm.”

He points out that your business could be legally liable for privacy law violations and fines if the cloud provider is compromised. In addition to the possibility of hacks, the cloud has another problem, he says: It’s not always reliable.

“There have been several outages recently that have lasted for over a week,” he says. “That’s several days without access to your data.”

HPC in the Enterprise: Not as Daunting as It Seems

IT Business Edge | Arthur Cole | Infrastructure RSS | Posted 11 Sep, 2015

Or are they? Most people view HPC in terms of the home-grown, scale-out infrastructure that populates the data centers of Google, Facebook and other Web giants. But as the technology matures, it is being integrated into increasingly modular footprints that can be incorporated into the standard enterprise footprint relatively easily.

Indeed, as Enterprise Tech’s Alison Diana found out from top executives at Cray, Psychsoftpc and other HPC specialists, enterprise deployments are seen as the next big market opportunity, which is why many of the leading platforms are being retooled with advanced power and cooling systems for deployment into critical data infrastructure. The HPC industry, in fact, is working to overcome the persistent myths that advanced computing requires specialized support, or even entirely new data centers, before it can play an active role in emerging data processes like analytics and high-speed transactions.

It's (still) Windows 95's world. We just live in it.

CIO Magazine

"We make gaming computers and wouldn't be doing that if it weren't for Windows 95," says Tim Lynch, CEO of Psychsoftpc. "It was the first true graphical gaming platform with the introduction of DirectX and games such as Hover, Pitfall (think Lara Croft), Al Unser Jr. Arcade Racing, Battle Beast, NBA Full Court Press, Havoc, and Diablo, all of which defined genres of games. Without Windows 95 there would be no Steam or Xbox and we would still be playing Pong."

HPC in the Datacenter: Together or Apart?

Enterprise Tech by Alison Diana

High performance computers do not necessarily require their own specially designed datacenters, yet even when design, cooling, or other concessions are necessary, benefits far outweigh any upheaval.

"There is a lot of misinformation out there that prevents folks from acting. It costs too much. It takes up lots of space. It needs its own climate-controlled room. It requires hundreds of computers,? said Tim Lynch, CEO of HPC vendor Psychsoftpc, in an interview. All pretty much false. A working cluster can be made with as little as five machines and a gig switch. That doesn't take up much room at all and the cost is not prohibitive."

HPC Myth Busters: The High Cost of Misconceptions

I had one client who got a new medical billing software package. the software company trainer, who should have known better, insisted on having just one login name and password for the entire staff, making the entire office not HIPAA compliant. this was done over my strong objections to make it “easier on the staff”. this person is still working for the company and still making every dermatology medical office she visits non-compliant.

Win the Game! Tips for Video Game Storage

1 August 2015 by

@Psychsoftpc shares tips on video game storage for those days you feel like being a kid again. Video games have changed dramatically over the years. What used to be a thick plastic cartridge can now be found in a web version or in a lightweight CD form. But one thing that remains intact is the value video games have to those who are involved in the industry. Gamers and collectors will always value a good piece of hardware that brings back memories of the first virtual games that ever existed.

You can store those games that are in cd/blue-ray form in CD sleeves or cases but Dr. Lynch says that it’s crucial to make sure the storage area you’re placing your video games in is dry since you may have additional items to store along with the games.“You’re not just storing CDs or DVDs but cases and papers with those all important gaming keys without which you can not install or play the game,” says Dr. Lynch.

The Single Best Place to Invest (or Reinvest) Business Capital: Advice from 27 Small Business Finance Experts

Direct Capital Feb 18 2015

Dr. Tim Lynch is the Founder and CEO of Psychsoftpc, a US manufacturer of high performance computers with Gaming PC, Business Computer, supercomputer and Graphics Workstation models based in Quincy, MA.

Where should small business owners invest capital?

Technology upgrades.

If it’s been 3 to 5 years or more since they’ve upgraded or replaced their tech, it’s time to take a serious look at it. A lot as changed in that period and they are probably lagging behind.

There is a new Wifi standard 802.11AC which offers much faster more reliable throughput than 802.11N to take advantage of this, routers and wireless access points would have to be replaced. Computers are faster than ever and graphics are better. Getting new machines or upgrading old ones with newer GPUs to take advantage of newer software should be considered.

If they are still using computers with the Windows XP operating system, they are at extreme risk for viruses, hacking and security breaches since XP is no longer supported by Microsoft and is no longer being patched. These machines should be replaced as they are probably too underpowered to run Windows 7 or 8.1 software should then be updated to take advantage of a true 64 bit operating system and the performance and speed it brings.

Signage as Structural Amplification

Church Designer July 30, 2014

Digital options—and their operation—represent a significant shift from previous processes, which usually involved continued updating of printed signs that often required several weeks lead time with little opportunity to correct mistakes, reports Tim Lynch of Psychsoftpc in Quincy, Mass. “Digital is a whole other way of thinking about signage,” Lynch states. “ Instead of static messages, there’s video, images, motion and crawl lines across the screen. It’s a rethinking of the medium.”

"The use of data analysis in predicting demand allows for ramping up or slowing down of production to have a more optimal supply, that is a supply to more closely match actual current needs rather than an oversupply or shortage," stated Dr. Tim Lynch at Psychsoftpc, a high-performance computer manufacture for big data,

Why identity thieves love loyalty cards

Mother Nature NetworkJul 25, 2012
"These cards track everything you buy and when you buy it. This data is available online, so a thief could track your movements somewhat as well as your purchases," said Tim Lynch, owner of Psychsoftpc, a maker of high- performance personal-computing systems in North Quincy, Mass. "If you're a creature of habit, the thief will know when you are at the store and when you're not home."

Social Media Advertising Tips and Strategies for SMBs

Advertise posts that offer value
"Make a natural post that's about a new offering, like we did, or an event or contest," recommends Tim Lynch, CEO, gaming computer maker Psychsoftpc.

"Don't make it sound like an ad. Segment the market. This is where Twitter and Facebook shine over Google AdWords. Google is like a shotgun, it targets everybody. Facebook and Twitter allow you to zero in on the target markets by age, interests, geographic regions, and other ways. You don't have to spend much to get a decent result. And don't expect sales from this. You're trying to get name recognition."

The Virtual Elf

 Megan Romano, chef-owner at Chocolate and Spice Bakery, Las Vegas

Big Tech Dream: “The more beautifully we wrap things, the faster we sell them. But it is amazing how long that takes,” says Romano. She’d love a virtual elf “to package, label and tie pretty bows” instead of hiring six people to help year-round, plus an extra two during the holidays.

Tech Reality Check:

Tim Lynch, Ph.D. and CEO of Psychsoftpc, a Quincy, Massachusetts, computer and gaming firm, says Romano better keep tying those bows. While robots can automate many tasks, it will likely be decades before a robot can handle delicate assembly work.

The Auto Mortar and Pestle

David Gilbert, chef-owner at Tuk Tuk Tap Room, San Antonio

Big Tech Dream:

Because he makes Southeast Asian-inspired cuisine, Gilbert spends most of his prep time with a mortar and pestle. Nothing else works like the time-honored tool, which smashes herbs while a food processor cuts. Lemongrass gets stringy if cut, rather than smashed. Gilbert pines for an automated, time-saving option.

Tech Reality Check:

The demand for fine motor skills makes a delicate task like this out of reach for current robotics, but Lynch sees it being possible within the decade. “The field of robotics is advancing rapidly,” he says.

Data Scientists in Demand in Oil, Gas to Address Big Data Challenge

Research Practioner VOLUME 15, NUMBER 1 January–February 2014 Clinical Trial Design

By Sue Coons, MA

The Basics of Simulation The information needed for a computer simulation in a clinical trial includes population of subjects — such as age and demographics, chemical composition of drug dosage variations, and potential interactions, says Tim Lynch, CEO of Psychsoftpc. Psychsoftpc has designed artificial intelligence software for AIDS research for the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The complexity of the simulation depends on whether some of the programming pieces already exist, he says. “Modern programming involves using, reusing, and adapting pre-existing code or classes. Modular programming is the word.”

“The more real-world data that can be applied, the better the [computer] simulation,” Lynch says. “If good simulations can be devised by inclusion of real-world data, a researcher could run what amounts to hundreds or even thousands of clinical trials virtually before attempting to run a real-world trial.”

Spring cleaning your computer

SheKnows by Heather Barnett

After you get your desktop cleaned up, keep it that way. Tim Lynch of Psychsoftpc says, "You should actually never use [your] desktop for anything other than shortcuts to frequently used programs. What is not commonly known is that you can actually create folder[s] on the desktop and put shortcuts in these to further organize things... you can even put shortcuts to other folders in these."

Your desktop should be clear of any files you aren’t immediately working on. Save current files within their permanent home, then create a desktop shortcut to access them easily.

Lynch recommends you have both onsite and offsite backup. "I recommend having an onsite backup in addition to one of the internet systems. You can't trust that the internet will always be available [to you]," he says, "The internet is always slower than local access. What happens to your stuff if... you forget to pay your bill?"

The Best Technology for Small Clinics and Doctor’s Offices

SmallBiz Technology January 29, 2013 by Stephanie Faris

One software solution relates to the way medical records are transmitted to patients’ doctors. In the current medical environment, medical records are no longer transported back and forth. Medical offices are able to deliver images and video online for demonstrating to patients. This new technology brings a few requirements with it, however.

“With the rise of online medical record and imaging delivery and online video consults, doctor’s offices should have at least one high-end computer that can handle high quality imaging output, video conferencing and 3D rendering,” Tim Lynch of PsychsoftPC says. “The ability to handle 3D virtual walk-throughs will also become increasingly important as medical technology continues to advance. And as diagnostics become more technology-driven, fast, high-end computers will become vital to data analysis in the practice of medicine.”

Meet the Microsoft Office Luddites: Why power users won't live in the cloud

Tim Lynch of boutique gaming computer maker PsychsoftPC sums up the concerns shared by many Office holdouts: "I prefer a traditional software package because it's not subject to Internet speed or availability, it's as fast as my PC can make it, big corporations like Google can't see what I'm writing or use it for advertising or sell my info to other advertisers, and my stuff is stored on my PC under my control, not in some unnamed server in some ambiguous cloud in some unnamed country."

So there.

To understand how far gamification has come, it’s important to discuss where it started. Tim Lynch is one of the first psychologists to study the effects of computer interaction on socialization, and he’s currently the president of gaming computer company Psychsoftpc.

Gamification Coming to a Workplace Near You

Open Forum Sharlyn Lauby

So why is gamification such an effective tool for instruction and training? Tim Lynch, president of gaming computer company Psychsoftpc, was one of the first psychologists to study the effects of computer interaction on socialization. Doing his doctoral work, he observed that people responded to a computer in similar ways as they did to other people–but better.

“In many instances, they were more open since there was a feeling of anonymity in dealing with the computer, and that learning in a computer simulation environment transfers over to real life experience,” Lynch says.

So, the first key ingredient in gamification success is an openness to connecting with technology. The second is using the computer experience afterward in practical application. Otherwise, the learning doesn’t take place.

How Video Games are Changing the Workplace

Parks Perspectives June 18, 2012

Gamification is applying engaging elements of game theory to non-game applications. An example would be to create a game to learn something new for work: While a lecture session could potentially turn off employees and prevent learning, a game that teaches the same skills could lead to an interested employee that is eager to learn.

In order to understand how far gamification has come, it’s important to know where it started. Tim Lynch, one of the first psychologists to study the effects of computer interaction on socialization, is currently the president of gaming computer company Psychsoftpc.Lynch stated that the basis of people socializing through computer interaction rested on the observation that people responded to a computer in similar ways that they did to other people. “In many instances, they were more open since there was a feeling of anonymity in dealing with the computer, and that learning in a computer simulation environment transfers over to real life experience,” he adds.

3d vision NVidia 3D Gaming Kit + PsychsoftPC Gaming Rig = One Amazing Christmas            

Third magazine the 3d Industry magazine Posted by The James in Gaming

Psychosoftpc makes some ferocious gaming rigs and now they’ve included the NVidia 3D gaming kit with their Psyborg Extreme Gamer PCs which will allow 3D gaming straight out of the box. If you already lucky enough to have a supported stereoscopic monitor there’s no reason to not be gaming in 3D right now. They cost of the NVidia 3D kits is quite reasonable.  

Psychsoftpc to offer NVidia’s 3D gaming kit

Blast Magazine By Michael Kaufmann

Most 3D software, gaming or otherwise, available up to this point has been very gimmicky. Either you were traversing polygons in a huge, virtual reality apparatus at a theme park, you were peering into a set of unwieldy goggles which rendered Wario in an ugly red monochromatic landscape–and yeah, we know you’d rather leave the horrendous Virtual Boy buried in the annals of your memory.

However, desktop 3D gaming is actually experiencing somewhat of a renaissance, and you can actually experience pretty decent 3D gaming from your computer. We’ve looked at the hardware offered by North Quincy, MA computer manufacturer Psychsoftpc before, but the maker has since expanded their offerings, and now you can order your gaming rig with NVida’s 3D Vision Kit with their Psyborg Extreme Gamer PCs to experience 3D gaming straight out of the box, provided you have one of the many supported steroscopic montors. And, as the computer maker points out, this is probably the closest we’ll ever get to a holodeck.

The kit comes with viewing glasses that function on the same principles as the ones you wore when you watched latest Pixar flick. Each eye sees a slightly different image, and the brain integrates the two images to produce a depth of field. The best part of the entire system is that the software inteagrates with existing games, meaning most games are compatible with the viewing system. NVidia often demos the system by playing Mirrors Edge, an experience that has to be absolutely and delightfully nauseating.

As we said before, Psychsoftpc makes some powerful computers, and by offering NVidia’s 3D Vision Kit with them, the package only becomes even more valuable.

Psychsoftpc’s Computers will make you sweat

While some people may only need their computers for checking their email and watching the occasional grainy YouTube video, there are some people who need an absolute powerhouse of a computer. Those people quite likely would shop at Psychsoftpc, headquartered close by in Quincy.

Psychsoftpc makes blisteringly fast and powerful computers built for users who need to do some serious computational lifting. While you’ll certainly be able to check your email, you’ll also be able to run the whole gamut of CAD, CAM, CGI, engineering and scientific programs out there, complete with enough graphic memory to make them fly.
