If you’re all about running an NVIDIA Tegra 4 quad-core processor with Android and you really, really need a keyboard attached to your display, HP has a solution for you. As a next-level version of the HP SlateBook they released last year, the HP SlateBook returns in black and yellow with a 14-inch display instead.
Parrot's hanger of drones is getting bigger, with the new Bebop Drone joining rather than replacing the AR.Drone 2. The new model flies further, promises to shoot better quality video, and has a smarter autopilot on-board, but it's also going to cost more than the AR.Drone 2 it will sit alongside on store shelves. So, will it be worth the upgrade?
It was expected that Portal would be released for NVIDIA SHIELD today on Android through the Google Play app store. It was not expected that NVIDIA and Valve would also release Half-Life 2. While NVIDIA did tease the possibility of Half-Life 2 for SHIELD last week, a grand effort appears to have been made to keep the game’s release to the mobile platform a secret.
Drawing on a tablet is a novel idea, but lacks a lot of the nuance we get when putting a pen to paper. In many ways, the action of taking a stylus to screen is still foreign to us. NVIDIA is attempting to change all that with their DirectStylus, and from the looks of it, they’re succeeding.
Speculation, rumor, innuendo — the days and weeks leading up to Google I/O have it all. The long-anticipated, heavily rumored Nexus 8 is once again building steam, as are changes for Google TV (or maybe Android TV). It’s easy to dismiss these as simple rumors, but are they? Maybe this time, Google let info slip a little early.
This week we've got a Mother's Day guide with a selection of tablets your dear Mama would love to receive. It’s not an easy thing, buying technology for a parent - or even a wife - but today we’ve got a list that can’t be easily misinterpreted.
Portal was a game-changer on the PC and a game-changer here, ported to Android, specifically to NVIDIA SHIELD. You’ll be moving through test chambers from a first-person perspective, taking control of a "Portal Gun" which allows you to shoot one orange ring, one blue ring. From there, gameplay is entirely unique to this Valve Corporation-made puzzle adventure.
NVIDIA's palm-sized supercomputer, the Jetson TK1, has begun shipping, offering developers 192 Tegra K1 cores to turn to things like feature-detection and tracking, object recognition, and 3D scene analysis. The $192 reference board uses the same CUDA core technology as NVIDIA has been supplying to researchers and universities for recent supercomputer projects, and was announced earlier this year at the company's GDC 2014 conference.
The graphics card-slinging folks at NVIDIA have once again made it their duty to make certain fans are getting not only the latest graphics processing power, but the latest games as well.
