Intel elaborates on depth camera tech: Ultrabook and tablet integration in 2014

While the details of the launch of Intel depth camera Perceptual Technologies integration with the Creative Senz3D camera haven't changed all that much since our introduction earlier this year, the company has continued to elaborate on what - exactly - will be coming. What we saw earlier this year at Computex 2013 was the first Intel introduction of the Creative Senz3D camera, there with a set of features looking to take on Microsoft's Kinect technology directly. It was also there that Intel VP of marketing Tom Kilroy let known their intentions with releasing the technology on depth-sensing notebook cameras by the end of 2014.

Leap Motion Controller Review – Airspace and Apps

Leap Motion Controller Review – Airspace and Apps

Leap Motion isn't convinced that a touchscreen is enough: instead, it wants you to start waving. While gesturing wildly at your electronics may bring to mind Jean Michel Jarre or trying to play a theramin, the Leap Motion controller is a whole new ball-game. Little larger than a packet of gum, the USB peripheral sits in front of your keyboard and tracks everything that moves in the space around it, with the theory being that reaching out and grabbing a virtual interface is a whole lot more natural than pushing a mouse around or even swiping at a touchscreen. Is the reality so clean-cut? Read on for the full SlashGear review.

Sony Xperia Tablet Z revealed with not-quite-Nexus specs

Sony Xperia Tablet Z revealed with not-quite-Nexus specs

Today Sony has made a bit of a soft announcement of their next-generation hero tablet, that being the Xperia Tablet Z: complete with a quad-core processor and a rather thin body. This machine is just about as strait up rectangular a tablet as we've ever seen with extremely tight (but not quite square) corners and what appears to be a slightly odd aspect ratio bezel around its 10.1-inch display. The Sony Xperia Tablet Z is also set to bring on none other than Sony's own "S-Force" virtual surround sound system - strange stuff!

Amazon forces “Special Offers” ads on all Kindle Fire tablets [Update 2]

Amazon will only offer advertising-supported Kindle Fire tablets, injecting "special offers" into the standby screen of its Android slates, and giving no option to pay more to remove the promotions. The "special offers" concept was launched for e-paper Kindles some time back, subsidizing the upfront cost of the ereader in return for showing adverts on the homescreen (though not during actual ebook display); now, that same concept has been included in the new range of Kindle Fire and Kindle Fire HD tablets.
