Dell-AR Innovation

May 31, 2016

3 Votes

Status: Acknowledged

Augmented reality is current in "beta" phase as far as technology and application goes.  A lot of groundwork has been done by Microsoft and Google with the Holo-lens and Glass respectively.  I propose that dell takes advantage of the existing interest of AR technologies, and expands them into large scale environments. Some of the environments that would be good to see are Zoos, Aquariums and Planetariums where instead of just seeing a docile elephant in a pen, or a limited number of small fish in bowls, and immersive experience where one can stand inches away from a life size Gorilla or Lion.  Or enter into a massive water tank and "swim" with life size whales, sharks, and creatures iof the deep that cannot be housed in current aquariums due to varius circumstances (enviornmental/habitat restrictions etc.)  The educational applications are limitless, and if the technologies are implimented into a self contained environment, can lead to an ever changing experience for end users.  Every week/month a new "exhibit" could be launched to bring back patrons, leading to a year round income source with drastically reduced overhead expenses vs traditional zoos/aquariums.  Other applications include, but are not limited to: AR-Gaming, AR-Educational programs, AR-Enterprise support applications, AR-client support applications.

AVG pre-installed

Jun 9, 2016

7 Votes

Status: Acknowledged

Dell has pre-installed McAfee for years, and now I think it's high time to end that partnership and partner with AVG to pre-install their software on new Dell systems. AVG offers a free antivirus that never expires, and it's better than Windows 10's built-in Windows Defender (i.e. you can't schedule scans in Defender, but in AVG). When you purchase a Dell system, you can select either the free edition of AVG, or a paid subscription. Most people would want the free edition, but to get more features (such as Firewall), you would have to purchase a subscription. I think pre-installing AVG would be a good option for Dell, because it would be inconvenient for people to uninstall McAfee and install AVG.

GE's dual piezo cooling technology for tablets, laptops.

Jun 7, 2016

4 Votes

Status: Acknowledged

Dell,GE's  dual piezo cooling jets, acts as a miniature pair of bellows: Expanding to intake  cool air, and then contracting to expel hot air. They're just 1mm thick,  high-performance cooler.This technology is better than hyperbaric fan or a regular fan cooling technology that is used in laptop today.The dual piezo cooling jet can move the same amount of air as a comparable axial  cooling fan twice its size while consuming half the amount of electricity and being cheaper to make. It  allows for slimmer designs of laptop, increases battery life and almost silent in operation.This technology is scalable, so can be made smaller or larger to suit the application.The following are images about this product:References:  ( fan description)  ( air flow demo)  (performance analysis)  ( thermal management )- voxmu

Biodegradable Packing material

Status: Partially Implemented

When I received my 32" lcd screen it had an extremely large amount of Styrofoam. Dell is working to be environmentally friendly, maybe they should consider a better packing material at least one that will biodegrade. Status Update:  Dell's latest strategy on better packaging for the environment can be found here and here.

Laptop for U

Apr 2, 2016

2 Votes

Status: Acknowledged

Monitors (in customer care departments) should have some attracted background which entertains customers who sits in front. They should be some sort of videos or puzzles to entertain customers who sit in back of monitors. Instead of waiting long hours in front of customer services departments. Better if named as (Customer PC or PC for U)

Include MAC address on package labels

Mar 31, 2016

2 Votes

Status: Acknowledged

It would be nice to include the MAC address on the same label with the Service Tag information.  It would be great to have a barcode for the MAC address without any colons.  We need to add the MAC address of each device to Active Directory for wireless network authentication.  We also include the device MAC address in our inventory database.Other options would be to add a barcode label on the device with the MAC address or allow us to download the Service Tag and MAC address information from the Dell Premier website.

Alienware Audio

Mar 7, 2016

Status: Acknowledged

Hi, This is a fairly simple idea....and that is simply to create your own Audio equilizer/management software/suite or whatever you want to call it. Hopefully you could colaborate with klipsch... basically, instead of having a third party software, integrate your alienware audio experience into alienware's Command Center....that way you can control driver releases/updates and overall compatibility I know you currently have an application that controls certain features...but I'm reffering to a comprensive suite - Intelligent Eq/Profiles/Bass boost/etc That's the ideaLove to hear what you think Thanks : )

Dell Dual and Tripple Monitor Stand with integrated laptop dock

Apr 14, 2016

4 Votes

Status: Acknowledged

Idea is simple, take the Dell MDS14 Dual Monitor Stand and combine it with the E-Port Plus Port Replicator with USB 3.0, offer it in a dual and tripple monitor setup, with the dock being integrated into the base of the monitor stand. This would allow for a neater desk with less cables.

keyboardless clamshell laptop

Apr 19, 2016

2 Votes

Status: Acknowledged

We need a double sided laptop, one without a top or a bottom, but where both halves of the clamshell are bottoms. The idea is each side has a touchscreen, and whichever one is down is the side that dynamically becomes the keyboard. Ideally you could use the tactile gel filled screen that creates bumps so you know where your hands are on it without looking. Ideally one could flip it all the way around like your current convertables. Then you just need a way to inform it which one is the one you want to look at, or maybe you want to look at both, like if you're playing Battleship. It would be especially neat to engineer the halves to be identical so in assembly you have half the parts in building it... or maybe double. But then having two 8-core processors and 2 graphics chips would make it a decent powerhouse of a system, but basically you're adding a hinge to dual tablets with all the capabilities that would imply with the doubled hardware, and the cost savings of not having to design and source all the components that go into a keyboard/touchpad setup on your device. Do it especially right with the connecting half having a super minimal, or non-existant bezel, and you end up with a single screen spanning the two halves.
