Google Glass sees laser-projected keyboard possibilities

Google Glass sees laser-projected keyboard possibilities

This week a patent has been revealed as filed by Google for what very much appears to be a laser-projected set of controls emanating from a pair of smart glasses. This of course could mean that Google's Project Glass is about to see some amazing virtual reality controls as their two upcoming developer events come to fruition at the start of next month. And this isn't the first time we've seen wild, futuristic control possibilities for Google's Glass, either!

Audi, Bang & Olufsen, Fraunhofer IIS team up for 3D auto experience

The folks at three of the biggest names in auto and/or audio have come together this month to bring on a beast of a system for the Audi Q7 for 2013. Bang & Olufsen have partnered with Audi as well as Fraunhofer IIS to bring on a "3D sound experience" for the next generation of Audi vehicles. Fraunhofer IIS, if you did not know, was the "main" inventor (as they say) of the MP3 and is an innovator of next-level audio experiences top to bottom - as any average Joe would tell you.

DIY Google Glass puts iOS in front of your eyes

DIY Google Glass puts iOS in front of your eyes

Google may be beavering away on the last stages of Project Glass before the Explorer version arrives with developers, but meanwhile DIY wearable computers are springing up, some with Apple's iOS at their core. A straightforward combination of an iPod touch, off-the-shelf wearable display, Bluetooth camera and a set of safety goggles was enough for AI researcher Rod Furlan to get a glimpse at the benefits of augmented reality, he writes at IEEE Spectrum, though the headset raised as many questions as it provided answers.

Check these 3 phablets coming in 2013 from Samsung, Nokia, and Huawei

Check these 3 phablets coming in 2013 from Samsung, Nokia, and Huawei

It's phablet day across the world as tipsters pointing toward three new elephant-sized smartphone devices leak a Nokia Lumia Juggernaut (code-name), an 8.5-inch Huawei un-named unit, and the Samsung Galaxy Note III. The Samsung unit is what we'd vote Most Likely to Succeed - or in this case Most Likely to Exist - in 2013 as each time a new Samsung Galaxy Note (non-tablet-sized) has been released thus far, it's gotten bigger than the last iteration. After that we've got to put our skeptic goggles on tight for all the salt that's flying our way.

Google Now, Google's own predictive search assistant, is already pretty great, but the company just made it even better, especially for frequent travelers.

Could Google+ Eat Evernote?

Could Google+ Eat Evernote?

Information is pointless if you can't find it when you need it. That's the ethos that has driven search engines like Google just as it has "digital notebook" services like Evernote, and it's also the reason why Google+ could eat Evernote's lunch if it put its mind to it. With the news of Facebook's one billion active users, questions as to how Google+ will compete with Zuckerberg's empire have inevitably surfaced; of course, the best way to stay relevant is to offer something completely different altogether.

Space Station crew savors “new car smell” of Dragon capsule

Space Station crew savors “new car smell” of Dragon capsule

SpaceX's Dragon capsule revealed its secrets to the crew of the International Space Station earlier today, a cache of food, equipment and "new car smell" as astronauts opened the hatch for the first time. After successfully docking with the ISS yesterday - and setting a new record in the process, as the first private craft to link with the station - after a 3.5 day trip through space, Dragon's more than 1,000 pounds of cargo will be unloaded over the next four days, before the shelves are packed up again for the return trip.
