Touchjet WAVE turns any TV into an Android Surface Hub

Touchjet WAVE turns any TV into an Android Surface Hub

We already have smart TVs, even those that run Android, but interacting with them still isn't something that has settled into a standard. You've got remote controls, gamepads, and even keyboard and mouse. So why not throw in two more ways? Like touch and a stylus. If that sounds almost familiar, then you've probably heard of Microsoft's Surface Hub. The Touchjet WAVE can do that too but at a fraction of the price and with the more open and more flexible Android. That is, if the crowdfunding campaign gets off the ground.

YotaPhone 2 for US cancelled over ‘unforeseen’ delays

YotaPhone 2 for US cancelled over ‘unforeseen’ delays

The YotaPhone 2, a Russian-made smartphone with an LCD front and an e-ink back, launched for US buyers via the crowdfunding website Indiegogo. That crowdfunding campaign proved successful, and by all accounts the oddball two-faced smartphone would eventually be making its way into backers’ hands. Only, it won’t be, at least not in the way backers expected. The company started sending emails to Indiegogo backers today advising them that the planned US release has been cancelled. The reasons, say the company, are “unforeseen delays."

Elio Motors raises $25M in “non-binding” crowdfunding

Elio Motors raises $25M in “non-binding” crowdfunding

Crowdfunding the production of a vehicle? Sure that's done before, but not really on Kickstarter and nowhere near the sophistication that "equity crowdfunding platform" StartEngine offers potential businesses. But that seems to be exactly what Elio Motors needed to boost the production of their three-wheeler car, now almost two years in the making. After all, they were able to gather $25 million in just a month from over 6,000 investors. But hold your horses, that doesn't mean they really got $25 million in cash, only that the sum was a "non-binding indication of interest."

Sony launches own crowdfunding platform “First Flight”

Sony launches own crowdfunding platform “First Flight”

Although Sony is still a big name in the industry, it no longer has the same force it had back in the days. It sold off its VAIO PC business to shed some unnecessary weight and it seems that its mobile devices might soon be on the way out as well. On the other hand, it also needs new businesses and products to keep it afloat, but a risk-averse culture and financial considerations keep it from jumping into more adventurous pursuits. The solution? A crowdfunding platform that encourages experimentation but, at the same time, shields it somewhat from failure.

Cherubs noise-isolating earbuds are made from ceramic

Love earbuds but haven’t found the right type for your needs? Cherubs is the latest to join the market, and they are fairly average except for one big reason: they are made from ceramic rather than plastics or other common materials. The use of ceramic is said to improve the earbuds’ audio functions while also serving as a sort of natural noise isolator due to the density of the substance. Silicone earbuds join the ceramic for a tight, isolating fit.

Vinli hands-on: A high-octane smart car upgrade

Shiny new connected cars may be all the rage at auto shows, but not everybody wants, or can afford, to swap their current ride for the latest model. Into that fray steps Vinli, an ambitious startup hoping to upgrade your car with WiFi, Bluetooth, LTE, an app store, and the power of the cloud, all for $99.95 and thirty seconds of installation. I took a trip with founder Mark Haidar to find out if it could really be so simple.

SoloCam takes selfie sticks to next level with built-in microphone

SoloCam takes selfie sticks to next level with built-in microphone

With Periscope and such offerings, being a whenever-you-feel-like-it reporter is pretty easy, but producing a stable video with good audio isn't when you're on your own. Enter the new SoloCam "selfie stick", which functions the same way as other smartphone-centric monopods, but with a big microphone on the end that doubles as a handle for the selfie stick. When using it, the resulting footage shows a microphone in the user's hand and stabilized footage. Joining the microphone are a few other features.
