Sony announces their anti-Google Glass wearable

Sony announces their anti-Google Glass wearable

Sony is pretty bullish about putting a display in front of your eyes. Phones and smartwatches are already pretty well-heeled in their lineup, but incoming projects like Morpheus take you into the world of virtual reality. Now, Sony is introducing “an attachable Single-Lens Display Module”, which amounts to Google Glass you can remove. It’s also quite a bit bulkier than Glass, but offers just about the same functionality.

Square Enix teases English dubbed Final Fantasy XV clip

English speaking fans of Final Fantasy, consider yourselves teased. Square Enix has just released, or in this case, re-released the trailer for Final Fantasy XV, but this time without the subtitles. Instead, what fans and viewers will get are the first ever sighting, or rather hearing, of English voices for the upcoming installment of the beloved Japanese RPG franchise.

TorrX smart air pump auto-inflates to the right pressure

You decide to play a pick-up game, but when you fish the basketball out of the old bin in the garage it is flat and useless. That leads to the air pump, which is a process of trial and error -- you pump up the ball until it looks decent, give it a couple test dribbles, add a couple more pumps again, dribble it a couple more times, add a little more air, and then find that you've over-inflated it and have to reverse the process.
