The latest entrant to try its hand at a curved display is Dell with its recently unveiled Ultrasharp U3415W monitor. This 34-inch computer screen boasts a wider-than-normal 21:9 aspect ratio that’s paired with 3,440 x 1,440 lines of resolution for crystal clear clarity. Dell asserts the U3415W’s wide field of view coupled with its curvy lines will turn users into better gamers as less eye movement is needed to take advantage of the player’s peripheral vision.

Exotic French automaker Bugatti took to Pebble Beach this week to reveal a special “1 of 1″ edition of the Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse. Originally rumored to be the latest installment of Bugatti’s “Legends” series when it surfaced in Alsace just last month, the special creation–commissioned by a customer in Singapore–sees the roadster decked out in a combination of black and yellow as a nod to the “Bumblebee” scheme that appeared on the likes of the Type 41 Royale, Type 55 and Type 44 during automaker’s heyday. The combination has even been extended to include both the rims and interior as laser-perforated leather covers the entirety of the supercar’s open cabin. Additional custom touches include an anodized, hand-polished grille–complete with owner’s own initials laser-cut into the design–and an oversized Bugatti crest on the underside of the vehicle’s massive rear wing. As per usual, a massive 16-cylinder 1,200 hp engine with four turbochargers provides the power for the one-of-a-kind convertible.
