Podo camera redux has larger pixels, wide-angle lens, two week battery

Remember the Podo wireless camera? It’s back again, this time as an upgraded version that has, among other things, twice the pixel size as the original and a wide-angle lens. Despite the changes, Podo still offers its best features — you can stick it anywhere (just about, anyway) for quick on-the-fly recording. Stick it to a door, and it’ll record your visitors; to a wall, and it’ll record your pets; to the fridge, and it’ll see who is stealing your lunch.

Google Pixel Phone detailed in release-level flying colors

New images of the Google Pixel smartphone (one of two) have leaked, allowing a much clearer look at the simplicity of the company's next vision. Not entirely unlike one of several 3rd-party launchers with circular icons (as we saw earlier this month), this view of the smaller Pixel smartphone shows how the device will present an extremely straightforward way of using one's phone as an information source and app launcher. Google's "G" icon is also quite prevalent without requiring Google's full word brand mark to take up any more room than it needs to.

DJI Mavic Pro’s secret weapon sits on your head

This morning the DJI Mavic Pro was introduced with a headset by the name of DJI Goggles, delivered with a single video showing how DJI's newest drone might be paired with their also-brand-new VR headset.

Custom Lamborghini Xbox One S giveaway begins with Forza Horizon 3 launch

Imagining just how much Microsoft and Lamborghini would charge for the ultra-limited edition Xbox One S you see here is kind of painful to think about, but the good news (we guess) is that the two companies aren't even giving you a chance to worry about price.
