The Leap Motion controller is a USB-sized piece of aluminum that possesses Kinect-like gesture controls. Laptops with integrated Leap Motion tech are rolling production lines, and the company's CEP Michael Buckwald says it's targeting smartphones and tablets next.
Designed by futurist Mac Funamizu, this little gadget called 'Marco' can help you find your keys, keep tabs on your house, play with your kids and even surprise you on your birthday.
Marco loves you. He does more than just 'shows' or 'says' that he does, but he moves his body to express his feelings. Also with his cute movements, Marco lets you know alerts and notifications. The movements of Marco depend on the types and importance of the alerts and notifications. Getting an email from your girlfriend with many angry exclamation marks, having a squall in 5 minutes, forgetting your meeting appointment, you notice it with Marco trying to tell you are having a situation.
In Japan, product designers have created the Neurocam, a "working prototype" that uses their own EEG signals to record animated GIFs via an iPhone strapped to the side of your head (yes, it looks stranger than Google Glass).
Samsung's smartphones are globally the most popular. While there are bound to be a few disgruntled owners of the phone, one customer decided to post a damaging online video that could put a dent in their reputation.
Bicycles are some of the world's most efficient modes of transport. They're five times more efficient than walking, and 100 calories on a bike can take a person three miles. In a car, 100 calories would only take you 280 feet.
The Internet of Things is happening. Fast. One day your eyewear will be able to tell your fridge to order milk when you run out of it. Or notify your spouse about what's needed. And if you forget, the TV might just notify you.
Thin is not only for gadgets these days. Now watch makers are making their timepieces elegantly thin too. Piaget has claimed the title of the 'world's thinnest mechanical watch' with its new Altiplano 38mm 900P that measures in at 3.65mm.
A European spacecraft will touch down on a two and a half mile wide ball of ice and dust as it makes its way towards the sun. That's right. Europe wants to land on a comet.
If all goes according to plan, the feat could give us what we need to understand about the origins of life on Earth. Any attempt, up until now, to study a comet has involved either flying by them to match their speed, or to crash into them hoping some of its material will break off to offer some insight.
This is the first time ever the moon has been captured orbiting Earth. The sequence was captured when Juno flew pass Earth on October 9, 2013.
Bolton describes the video: "In the movie, you ride aboard Juno as it approaches Earth and then soars off into the blackness of space. No previous view of our world has ever captured the heavenly waltz of Earth and moon."
Most robots don't look like how we want them to. At least not yet. But the Valkyrie defies all the conventional first gen robot looks. It looks like an Iron Man bot! Or a mini Gundam!
NASA's Johnson Space Center revealed its entry in the DARPA robotics challenge. Standing at 6 feet tall, the robot weighs 275 piunds and has two cannon like arms which are interchangeable. Its legs are designed to walk on rough and uneven terrain, and it is equipped with cameras on its head, body, forearms, knees and feet. There's also LIDAR and sonar units for added detection.
Arnold & Richter is the first watchmakers to include filmmakers as a profession their watch is made for. Their limited edition Arri-branded DoP*1 watch was designed with the help of cinematographer Tom Fährmann.
What is this red Nokia phone all about? According to the Verge, it's not just any old Lumia Windows Phone. It is Nokia's long rumored entry into the Android market.
According to the Verge's Tom Warren, several unnamed sources have claimed that the handset above is being called "Project Normandy". The phone will apparently run Android apps, and will supposedly run a forked version of Android that won't parlay directly with Google Play.
Apple has been awarded a patent by the US Patent and Trademark Office for a new breed of curved touch surfaces.
Patent No. 8,603,574 —or "Curved touch sensor", describes a manufacturing technique for curved touch surfaces aimed at minimizing problems caused by substrate warping or deformation. It suggests that it could be used in displays, touch pads, touch mice and more.
We've heard of trains going off their tracks before. Can tragedies like these be avoided? The Precision Train Control system may be able to prevent all of this.
The system is an automated train speed control system, and it tracks a train's location via the Nationwide Differential Global Positioning System (NDGPS). It can limit a vehicle's speed depending where it is on the line, and furthermore, increase fuel efficiency while reduce wear and tear on the vehicles.
Dark matter may have already been detected with superconducting circuits, according to researchers. Still, the whole thing remains a mystery.
The invisible substance, thought to take up five-sixths of all matter in the universe has been elusive. The scientific consensus is that it is composed of a new type of particle - one that interacts weakly at best with all known forces of the universe, except gravity. Because of that, dark matter is invisible and nearly completely intangible.
