Vuzix has announced plans to develop a stylish head-mounted display solution in the form of Smart Glasses, through a licensing partnership with Nokia. The yet-unnamed product would integrate a bright, high-contrast display with a pair of seemingly ordinary-looking sunglasses -- sounds like a perfect companion to the ZionEyez in-glasses camera prototype we saw last month.
Archos may have, at least for now, given up on its mobile device gaming handheld mashup, but someone is taking up the cause. At CES early this year, Snail Games, a popular name in the mobile gaming world (Age of Wushu, Taichi Panda, Heroes of Gaia) showed off its own take on this niche device form factor.
I’ve been wearing glasses since I was in third grade. The only thing that I don’t like about my glasses is that they slide down my nose. I have no idea how many times a day I push them back up, but I’m sure it’s a lot, especially when I’m outside in hot weather or on workout days.
Laptops are no longer a financial burden — the market is full of inexpensive notebooks, many of which cost less than a mid-tier smartphone. These machines are usually targeted at students, kids, casual users, and those in need of a secondary laptop, one they’re willing to risk carrying at the subway or checking in at the airport.
iPad owners who use the Apple Smart Cover and also like to use a stylus to take notes or draw should check out the REMORA stylus & pen holder project on Kickstarter. It’s a leather stylus holder that magnetically sticks to the outside of the smart cover. They sent me one to try out and I’m very impressed. Note: Images can be clicked to view a larger size.
One of the problems with the smart home movement is that you are practically asked to buy new furniture or appliances that incorporate those brains. Sometimes, that isn't an option, either when the normal, non-smart product is loads better or if it's just really impossible or difficult to replace them. Like AC units, for example.
A few days ago, the New York Times ran piece that raised doubts about the success of the Apple Watch, pointing out how some popular apps, like Facebook, are nowhere to be found on Apple's smartwatch. Setting aside some assumptions that the piece makes, which others have already debunked, the piece does raise the ghost of doubt about smartwatches. Not just Apple's but all smartwatches in general.
I’ve become quite fond of power banks. I consider myself a tech power user and have no difficulty draining a device’s battery. As a result, I’m in constant need of a power source and have found power banks to be an excellent solution. I was given the opportunity to test the EasyAcc 10,000 mAh power bank and determine whether it will be a permanent fixture in my geek toolbox.

It seems that the "thinnest" craze from smartphones have now infected smart TVs. Trying to make display panels seemingly disappear into our living room walls, manufacturers have started to squeeze their TVs to almost insane sizes. The latest to do so is Xiaomi , who has just outed its Mi TV 2S, barely half a year since it launched the Mi TV 2 .

I wish I could wear sunglasses, but I wear normal glasses with Transitions Optical photochromic lenses. That’s just a fancy way of saying that the lenses darken when exposed to sunlight. They work fine but don’t allow me the ability to change styles as easily as I could if I were able to wear regular sunglasses.
Beating Google's Project Ara by a few months, or so we hope, Fairphone has just opened the pre-order doors for its own take on the modular smartphone design. Though not exactly how some might envision "modular" to be, the Fairphone 2 is nonetheless designed to not only be robust enough to survive most accidents but modular to the extent that parts can be replaced or repaired when damaged.
