Nuby?s Cool Rhythm
addresses this heating problem in a couple of ways. First, the Cool Rhythm
acts as a stand for your PlayStation. This lifts your system a couple of inches off of the floor (high enough to evade the shaggiest of carpets). Second, the Cool Rhythm
has a built-in circulating fan to keep air flowing across the bottom of your PlayStation. I tested the Cool Rhythm
in a Silent Hill
-spree, followed by some good ?ole RPG playing,? and the unit does its job well. I have not yet taken any temperature readings for comparison, but I will do so in the near future. Let me say this, however. While the bottom of my PlayStation usually gets hot during long sessions such as my test, with the Cool Rhythm
, it wasn?t even WARM.
Once Nuby figured out a way to keep the PlayStation cool, they figured they?d add some extra features while they were at it. So, they added a pair of amplified speakers on the front of the unit (and of course, volume and on/off controls for the speakers), a headphone jack (so you can keep playing your favorite game into the wee hours of the night without disturbing others), and a storage compartment large enough for 14 memory cards (we ALL have at least 14 memory cards, right? And, finally, to keep it compatible with everything, they included a video and audio pass thru. This means that you can still plug your PlayStation into whatever audio device you want (such as your TV or stereo system), and also use the speakers on the Cool Rhythm.
