Putting a strong emphasis on things that aren’t video games, Microsoft debuted the new Xbox One this afternoon. Don’t get us wrong, the games look sick (at least the EA Sports ones they showed off along with a few others), but the way the device lets you interact is really awesome. Power the unit up by simply saying, “Xbox on,” then talk to it to watch live TV, change channels, preview what’s on different networks, and use Windows 8’s Snap Mode to run an app on the side of the screen while you’re watching a movie, TV, or playing a game. Kinect is all redone with far more precise motion detection. There will be exclusive content (starting with a Halo series) and Xbox Live is getting a huge bump going from 15,000 servers to 300,000 so your content can be stored and accessed from the cloud all the time. It’s insane all-in-one entertainment and will be released later this year. More info to follow at E3 in a few weeks.

Every tactical gear manufacturer offers something in the way of a tactical pen, but they’re not all as robust as the TriTac from StatGear. It’s engineered from aircraft grade aluminum with an ergonomic grip and bolt action pen lever, and the included Fisher Space Pen ink can write in all types of conditions, from a light drizzle to a stint in space. Obviously, no tactical pen is complete without a carbide window punch, but the TriTac goes above and beyond, adding a 440C stainless steel, razor sharp blade.
