Panono throwable panoramic ball camera one step closer to launch

Panono throwable panoramic ball camera one step closer to launch

All the way back in 2011 we had our first look at the Throwable Panoramic Ball Camera - well before it was ready to be manufactured as a consumer product. Here at the tail end of 2013, taking full advantage of the current craze that is crowd-funding, the same fellow who headed the project two years ago is taking a real stab at making the machine a reality. We had a chat with Jonas Pfeil, the creator of Panono, here on the day of the launch of this device's first Indiegogo push.

VIEVU teams with Motorola Solutions for new body-worn video cameras

The oncoming collection of BWV (body worn video) cameras coming from VIEVU may remind you of Narrative Clip - aka the cameras formerly known as Memoto.

Ubuntu Edge appears “absolutely anti-ergonomic” in the wild [UPDATE]

Ubuntu Edge appears “absolutely anti-ergonomic” in the wild [UPDATE]

The project known as Ubuntu Edge is a dual-booting Ubuntu/Android smartphone that may or may not make its way to the real world due to its slightly under-funded initiative for action - but that's not stopping early adopters from showing the machine off in a set of up-close photos. What you're seeing here is the Ubuntu Edge looking very much like the device as prototyped in the original campaign. Here we see this "smartphone and desktop PC in one" as what China-based C Tech calls "absolutely anti-ergonomic" - but what original photographer Adam Outler calls "really great and solid in the hand" - which does it look like to you?

Activity tracker Shine is headed to Apple Stores this week, with the discrete wearable the latest option in health monitoring to follow in the footsteps of Nike's Fuelband and Jawbone's UP. Initially funded by an Indiegogo campaign late last year, Shine is arguably the most attractive of the health dongles we've seen so far, being a simple metal disc with hidden LEDs to show your daily progress or the current time.
