This little machine is taking photography to new heights. Thought it's still being developed, Christoph Kohstall, a doctoral candidate at Stanford University, hopes that Nixie will be the next big thing in selfies. The Nixie is a tiny, wearable drone with built-in camera and foldable bands that attach it to your wrist.
This little machine is taking photography to new heights. Thought it's still being developed, Christoph Kohstall, a doctoral candidate at Stanford University, hopes that Nixie will be the next big thing in selfies. And the $500,000 it just won from Intel may help it along. The Nixie is a tiny, wearable drone with built-in camera and foldable bands that attach it to your wrist.
HP has revealed the HP Sprout, it's new "creativity station" that pairs a Windows 8.1 PC with a new HP Illuminator system blending a projector, high-resolution camera, and Intel's RealSense 3D tracking for capturing digital versions of physical objects. Similar in appearance to a regular all-in-one PC, though with a large, touch-enabled platform where you'd usually expect the keyboard to be, the Sprout is intended to allow "blending reality" for designers and gamers, with its image and motion capture system taking hand movements and 3D scans and digitizing them on the 23-inch Full HD touchscreen.

Several months ago, Google Maps added a Virtual Reality switch for their Street View platform. With this switch, users are able to view any Street View-enabled location with their Google Cardboard headset. What we've done here is to compile some of the most awesome places you're able to visit right this minute with your Android smartphone with (or without) a VR headset like Google Cardboard.
You can use 3D printing to make a handful of electronics, such as antennas andbatteries, but LEDs and semiconductors have been elusive; you usually need some other manufacturing technique to make them work, which limits what they can do and where they'll fit. A team of Princeton researchers recently solved this problem, however.
Intel may be king of the PC and laptop chip hill, but ARM's the reigning daddy when it comes to smartphones and tablets. Mostly this is because Intel's technology still lags behind ARM's ultra low power silicon, and because mobile software is predominantly geared toward the platform.
