Try not to dance as DJ spins a set using Apple Watch

Try not to dance as DJ spins a set using Apple Watch

Algoriddim's DJ app, Djay has finally accomplished the insurmountable--making it possible to DJ from a smartwatch and to cool look while doing it. Djay introduced Apple Watch integration to its iOS app practically as soon as Apple Watch was released. The thought of DJing on a watch face sounds impractical, but as an auxiliary tool in a skilled DJ's arsenal, it's just another way to manipulate sound. In the video below, you can see a DJ control his set from Apple Watch. Like a cowbell mounted on a drum kit, it looks cool, but overuse can lead to an obnoxious set.

MHD Sport 2.0 Wi-Fi Action Camera includes viewfinder wearable

Monoprice has launched its new MHD Sport 2.0 Wi-Fi Action Camera, a small GoPro-like device that includes a wearable viewfinder called the Live View RF Wrist Remote (the wearable is optional, however).

As with competing models, the camera can record video at different resolutions including Full HD, and can create time lapse videos from still images.

4GEE Action Cam offers livestreaming over 4G

4GEE Action Cam offers livestreaming over 4G

EE, a large British communications company, has introduced its own competitor to GoPro’s HERO4 action camera — it is called the 4GEE Action Cam, and it kicks off what will be a bigger line up of similarly branded products to be introduced later on in 2015. The 4GEE Action Cam has a design more akin to a typical compact camera rather than most action camera designs. There is a big catch, though. The camera is able to broadcast footage online, but doing so will require a 4G data subscription with EE, limiting it to a smaller range of users than the HERO4, Sony Action Cam, and other competing models.

Gekkopod is a flexible, wrappable camera and phone tripod

Gekkopod is a flexible, wrappable camera and phone tripod

Tripods are becoming increasingly flexible, and Gekkopod is perhaps the best example of that. The Gekkopod tripod can hold a smartphone and a regular camera (though not at the same time) and be positioned just about anywhere the user would like — wrapped around the end of a long stick to be used as a selfie stick, around a tree branch to record some event, or on a flat but angular surface. The idea is that you can use the Gekkopod in a variety of situations that would otherwise necessitate many mounting accessories.

Tracking Bill Nye’s Solar Sailer LightSail

Tracking Bill Nye’s Solar Sailer LightSail

LightSail has deployed, and with it, a Mission Control Center with the ability to predict where the solar sailer will be moving above the Earth as it makes its important journey. The good news is that this solar sailer will be passing over the United States. The bad news is - it's probably already passed over you for the first time if you're reading this article in the late afternoon. This won't be the only opportunity you get to be close to a solar sailer, on the other hand, as development will continue well into the future with The Planetary Society.

OpenEars earbuds record binaural ‘3D’ audio

OpenEars earbuds record binaural ‘3D’ audio

Binaural recordings different from the recordings you get with a standard stereo microphone, in that they result in so-called ‘3D audio’. This is due to the two microphones’ placement — on the head at each ear or on an object in the same arrangement as you’d get from ear-placement. Making binaural recordings has traditionally been difficult, but a new pair of earbuds aims to change that — they’re called OpenEars, and they can be used to record 3D audio that sounds more true-to-life than commonly recorded audio.

Google I/O 2015 Wrap-Up: Bangs and Whimpers

Google I/O 2015 Wrap-Up: Bangs and Whimpers

It's tough to stand out when you're still in the shadow of a skydiving co-founder, and Google I/O 2015 ended with many still holding their breath for the big bang. Even with Android M on the agenda, what we got instead was a more rounded view of how Google sees computing evolving, not only in near-saturated markets like the US and Europe, but for the "next billion" whose first taste of the internet will most likely come through an affordable smartphone. It was a lot to fit into even an extended keynote, at times feeling like Google was rushing to name-check projects without giving them the context they perhaps needed. In fact, most of the really cool stuff didn't even get a spot on the big stage.

Google’s VR circle is now complete: Cameras to Cardboard

Google’s VR circle is now complete: Cameras to Cardboard

Google's virtual reality ecosystem is now prepared to handle the public, with everything from low-cost VR headsets to YouTube 360. What we've got here is a full ecosystem, with the three main components ready to roll. The first step is providing the means to capture media, in this case 360-degree cameras - while Google's own 360-rig system Google Jump isn't quite prepared for the public as yet, they've already released tools for creatives with their own 360-capable cameras to upload to YouTube. Therein lies the second step: providing a place for creative people to share the media they've created - YouTube, of course.

Google I/O 2015 round-up: the main keynote

Google I/O 2015 round-up: the main keynote

Google focuses on Android, development of Internet of Things, Photos, and virtual reality at this year's Google I/O developer conference. The conference began with a brief introduction to Android M, Google's next software for mobile devices. From there, they went on to celebrate their first billion user products and the release of Android Pay. Needless to say, this wasn't a super Chrome-focused sort of day. This was a day of mobile engagement from the start of this first keynote to the end. All about movement and tiny device software.
