Facebook may push Oculus to consumer hardware

This week Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg stood onstage at F8, the social network's developer conference, and spoke about Oculus VR. Zuckerberg showed how 360-degree spherical video would be making its way to Facebook's main news feed with the help of Oculus VR. This same content would be coming to Oculus Rift some time after it'd hit the main news feed. With the Samsung Gear VR (made in collaboration with Oculus VR), the company would also be showing a "Teleportation Station" to give people a glimpse of their offices from a remote location.

Trefecta DRT mil-spec electric bicycle hits 40MPH

Trefecta DRT mil-spec electric bicycle hits 40MPH

Trefecta has introduced a new electric bicycle that is unlike any e-bike you've seen -- it has a no-nonsense industrial design, meets mil-spec standards, and can hit a top speed of 40MPH, eclipsing many scooters on the market. It's the type of bicycle you'd want to have tucked away for the apocalypse, or perhaps an impromptu trip through certain parts of the world. Though it can be pedaled (it is, after all, a bicycle), it also has a throttle for pedal-free operation, the latter of which includes a range of more than 60 miles per charge.

Melchior mechanical time keeping robot is a table clock

I love the intricate pieces and workmanship that go into mechanical watches that don’t need batteries. It's very intriguing to think that someone somewhere designed all these gears and springs to make a watch keep accurate time without resorting to electrics. A mechanical watchmaker called MB&F has unveiled one of its tenth anniversary timepieces and it's not a wristwatch.

Mondaine Helvetica No 1: analog dials, smartwatch information

Mondaine Helvetica No 1: analog dials, smartwatch information

Over at BaselWorld this week, even brands like Mondaine aren't immune to the market wish for "smart" functionality in high-end watches. The last time we heard from Mondaine - in a smartwatch sense - was when they took part in a protest of pirated smartwatch faces back in November. Now they're back with their own smartwatch - one with fitness tracking abilities. That's about it. Two years of battery life is fairly standard when it comes to a smart fitness tracker like the one you're seeing here - even if it has a high-end body.

When Apple launched the iPad Air 2, they ushered the team at Pixelmator onto the stage to showcase their new iPad-only photo editing app. If you’ve not yet used Pixelmator on the iPad — it’s about as good as it gets for mobile photo editing (and image creation!). Forgoing the list of filters many others want to feed you, Pixelmator is a bit more ‘pro’ than most other iPad photo editing tools. Today, an update brings in much more functionality, and some new tools for users to check out.

YouTube rumored to have paid tier in the works

YouTube rumored to have paid tier in the works

Would you pay for YouTube? If a new report is accurate, you might soon have to think critically about that. Google is cited by sources as being interested in a video-on-demand (VOD) subscription model for YouTube. The move is believed to be in response to other platforms, many of whom offer a pay-to-play layer wherein the content is ad-free. It may also be a move to retain talent, something YouTube has quietly been battling for a year or more.

Student creates 3D extruder using hot glue gun and LEGO

What do you do if your research project calls for equipment that you don't have access to or can't afford on your own? Well, you can either beg your school for it, weep to your professor about the difficulty of the project or just wing it and make your own. Whatever muse took hold of Vimal Patel, it must have been a pretty strong one. In the absence of a 3Doodler-like machine, he decided to make his own contraption using some creativity, imagination, and LEGO.

Emoji Keyboard skin puts characters right beneath your fingers

Everyone loves emojis these days, right? The wide range of characters has become our de-facto form of communicating on our smartphones. But what about when we sit down at our desks or laptops and use physical keyboards? On a Mac, entering your favorite emoji becomes a tedious process of navigating a character-entry tab and clicking on emoji one at a time with a mouse. That's where the crazy kids at Disk Cactus have stepped in with their emoji keyboard overlay skin, currently on Kickstarter.

Mapillary creates maps with crowdsourced street views

Mapillary creates maps with crowdsourced street views

Mapillary is taking crowdsourcing to the streets, or more precisely, street views. Instead of relying on a single authority (cough, Google Street Views) to relay street level photos, Mapillary lets anyone upload photos of their environment. Mapillary uses the idea that locals can create better images of their surrounding environment than an automated car passing through a city. You can browse through hidden alleyways in Spain, or take a visual drive down the Pacific Coast Highway. You can also upload your own photos using your smartphone camera and their handy app.
