Secretlab TITAN Evo 2022 Minecraft gaming chair now up for preorder

Mojang and Secretlab have teamed up to launch an official Minecraft Edition gaming chair. The TITAN Evo 2022 Minecraft Edition chair is, as you can see from the launch images, styled after the game’s Creeper character. The company is offering the chair in various size options, as well as some accessories like a headrest and swappable armrests.

The Secretlab TITAN Evo 2022 Series Minecraft Edition chair features the company’s SoftWeave Plus Fabric, as well as some premium features like a full-metal internal mechanism for precision and durability. Likewise, the chair features Secretlab’s CloudSwap magnetic replacement system for rapidly replacing the armrest topper material.

The chair also features a magnetic memory foam headrest that can be easily snapped to and removed from the chair for additional head and neck support when needed. Users are able to move the headrest up or down as needed, plus the cushion features a layer of ‘cooling gel’ to help prevent overheating.

The chair’s seat, meanwhile, features a combination of design elements from Secretlab’s OMEGA and TITAN product lines, offering a supportive center region alongside ‘gently sloping side wings.’ The company is offering its Minecraft Edition TITAN Evo 2022 Series in Small, Regular, and Extra Large (XL) size options.

Despite its name, the TITAN Evo 2022 Series Minecraft Edition is available now for preorder. The small and regular sizes (which are rated for less than 200lbs and 220lbs, respectively) are both priced at $549 USD, while the extra-large chair, which is rated for 175 – 395lbs, is priced at $599 USD. The headrest pill is included with the chair.

Google’s new Titan security key lineup won’t make you choose between USB-C and NFC

Google announced updates to its Titan security key lineup on Monday, simplifying it by removing a product and bringing NFC to all its keys. The company will now offer two options: one has a USB-A connector, one has USB-C, and both have NFC for connecting to “most mobile devices.” The USB-A key will cost $30, and the USB-C key will cost $35 when they go on sale on August 10th.

One of the biggest changes in Google’s new lineup is an updated USB-C key, which has added NFC support. Google’s previous USB-C option, made in collaboration with Yubico, didn’t support the wireless standard. Now, the choice between USB-C and A is easy, as there aren’t features that one has that the other doesn’t. It’s simply a matter of what ports your computer has. Google did not immediately respond to a request for comment on whether Yubico was involved with the new key.

According to Google’s support document, its Titan security keys can be used to protect your Google account as well as with third-party apps and services that support FIDO standards, such as 1Password. They, and other security keys from companies like Yubico, can act as second factors to secure your account even if an attacker obtains your username and password. They also fight back against phishing since they won’t authenticate a login to a fake website that’s trying to steal your credentials. The Titan keys also work with Google’s Advanced Protection Program, which is designed to provide extra security to people whose accounts may be targeted.

Google’s current USB-A security key already includes NFC and sells for $25. The USB-A plus NFC key that Google lists in its blog post will sell for $30, but it comes with a USB-C adapter. The USB-A key currently listed on the store doesn’t include one, unless bought as part of a (sold-out) bundle, according to Google’s spec page.

Google’s NFC / Bluetooth / USB key, which was made available to the public in 2018, will no longer be sold as part of the updated lineup. It’s already listed as sold out on Google’s store page. Google’s blog post says that it’s discontinuing the Bluetooth model so it can focus on “easier and more widely available NFC capability.”

While the updated Titan Security Key lineup seems to lack a Bluetooth option, it’s nice to see that the USB-C key is getting NFC. If you’re living the MacBook / iPhone lifestyle, you’ll be able to use the updated USB-C plus NFC key without any dongles. Google says in its blog post that the Bluetooth / NFC / USB key will still work over Bluetooth and NFC “on most modern mobile devices.” Google’s Titan Security Key store page currently lists the old models, but Google’s post says the updated lineup will be available starting on August 10th.

Secretlab TITAN Evo 2022 ramps up gaming chair finesse

The Secretlab Titan EVO 2022 gaming chair was revealed in three sizes with two new material coverings. The company Secretlab was first created in the year 2014, making waves with top-tier gaming chair action right out the gate. This newest chair utilizes proven positive features from past chairs and expands the formula with new, more potentially valuable features of several sorts.

Returning features

This chair has some features available in chairs produced by Secretlab in the past. This includes a simple assembly – for easy shipping and construction. It includes XL PU casters for gentle treatment of floors, a multi-tilt mechanism with angle lock, 165-degrees of recline, and patent-pending cold cure foam inside.

New features

The new chair has three sizes available, including Small, Regular, and XL. This new model has a new seat base that “combines the best of the Secretlab OMEGA and TITAN.” The new seat has “improved design engineering” in the base seat to “cater to a wider range of users.”

Titan Evo 2022 works with shorter hydraulics than in past models. This model has a redesigned recline handle and lumbar adjustment knobs for “better grip”, and height, tilt, and recline levers at “better angles and positioning for easier reach.”

Materials for Secretlab Titan Evo

The two new Secretlab TITAN EVO materials available with this new set of chairs are Secretlab SoftWeave Plus and Secretlab NEO Hybrid Leatherette. Secretlab SoftWeave Plus is the latest version of the company’s SoftWeave fabric, made with loops of high-strength yarn and construction that allows it to be soft, durable, and breathable.

Secretlab SoftWeave Plus fabric is available in Arctic White, Cookies & Cream, BLACK3, Plush Pink, Mint Green, and Frost Blue, all on Secretlab Titan Evo

Secretlab NEO Hybrid Leatherette “recreates the luster and resilience of napa leather” while delivering a fabric that’s tougher than the company’s “signature PRIME 2.0 PU leather.” This NEO Hybrid Leatherette comes in Stealth, Black, Classic, Ash, and Royal.

This chair can be purchased now from Secretlab.co for approximately $449 USD. The same site shows non-direct pricing at $549 USD. This chair ships from Tennessee and Utah. At launch, Secretlab announced this chair would have “additional delivery delays” as a result of high volume of sales.
