Sony’s Xperia Aquatech store – a unique marketing promotion and amazing underwater experience

Earlier today Sony opened its first of a kind underwater store. But before you put on your bathing suits, there is a slight catch. The Xperia Aquatech store is a promotional activity, carried by the Japanese company in Dubai, or rather 4 meter under sea level near the city.

The three daylong event aims to demo the marine capabilities of some of Sony’s water-proof devices and most of all build publicity. The guest list is very short, with only competition winners, media and VIPs attending and from the looks of it was nothing short of a spectacular experience.

Attendees are required to participate in some mandatory scuba diving training and are put under the constant supervision of a diving instructor. The preparations extended even further as gкests, who happened to own a Sony Experia Z3 or Z3 Compact are even given special waterproof cases to ensure that their smartphones will survive even further beyond the 1.5 meters of water they were rated for.

The store experience underwater itself is more of a technical demo by a company representative and arguably Sony could not have picked a better setting to make it as convincing and engaging as possible.

The whole endeavor looks extremely pricy and even somewhat risky, but it definitely is very out of the box and should bring about a lot of viral heat. Photos from the thrilling event, tagged #XperiaAquaTech, are already floating around Twitter so be sure to check them out for a glimpse of the catchy venue.

Download the Linux-based SteamOS and make your own SteamBox now

Valve has finally launched its Linux-based SteamOS for you to download and install on you own hardware. Despite being in “early stages of development” as the company puts it, enthusiasts are free to try it out and share their opinions on what they’d improve.

SteamOS is based on Debian GNU/Linux distribution version 7.1. The minimum hardware requirements aren’t as high as one would think with Valve’s OS needing an Intel or AMD 64-bit CPU, 4GB of RAM, 500GB HDD and an NVidia GPU – support for AMD GPUs is coming soon.

Basically, SteamOS relies heavily on the Steam Big Picture mode. Valve’s ultimate goal is to make SteamOS fluid, reliable and functional enough in order to take all the duties of a home media center. This is also great news for the Linux community, which finally seems to get attention from a large game distributor and that’s vital if it is to be regarded as an alternative to Windows when it comes to gaming.

Anyway, if you have the free time and hardware at hand, maybe you would be willing try it out for yourself. Check out the source link below to get started.
