Plastic Logic color e-paper headed for 2012 volume production

Plastic Logic's first product, the business-centric QUE ereader, isn't even in customers' hands yet, but the company are already talking about their follow-up.  They reckon they'll have a manufacturable color e-ink display ready by the end of 2011, and headed into mass production in 2012.  The panel will be based on technology the company already have "working at our Cambridge laboratory" according to Achim Neu at Plastic Logic.

QUE proReader delayed until summer

QUE proReader delayed until summer

I am not typically one to pre-order products. I like to be able to just walk into a store, buy the thing, and take it home. One of the reasons I don’t like pre-orders is that you never really know when you will get the device until it actually ships. Such is the case with the geeks who pre-ordered the expensive QUE proReader a while back.

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 2 2010

The week of CES each year is a week that geeks in the industry and geek consumers look forward too with glee. At the same time those of us who have been to the show have to temper the gadget lust we get going into the show with the knowledge that his is one of the most grueling weeks of the year to be a pro geek. Just look at the number of new items announced this week; it was hard to even whittle the list down to some of the coolest gear of the week for our second week in review of 2010.

This futuristic exoskeleton convinced me to take aging seriously

This futuristic exoskeleton convinced me to take aging seriously

One day you will die, but, before then - and assuming all goes to plan - you’ll be trapped in an old body. Failing eyesight, hearing plagued with tinnitus, and limbs progressively seizing until just getting up from your chair is a challenge too great: death may be considered the biggest taboo, but aging is arguably a more uncomfortable one. With all that to look forward to, it’s no surprise that nobody wants to talk about getting old. Could a futuristic exoskeleton kick-start that conversation?

2016 Volvo XC90 first-drive – Scandinavia on wheels

2016 Volvo XC90 first-drive – Scandinavia on wheels

Nordic noir has invaded our television and our bookshelves, and now Volvo wants to do the same for luxury SUVs with the all-new 2016 XC90. As many companies, automotive and otherwise have discovered, throwing money at a problem isn’t necessarily the best way to fix it. Nonetheless, it helps to have deep pockets when you’re tasked with completely reinventing your line-up, and Volvo has spent over $11bn since it was sold to Geely in 2010 and began to rebuild its range from the ground up. Now, we’re getting a taste of what that money bought, and like moody Scandinavian detectives, it turns out to be complicated.

2016 Camaro first-drive – Look out, Mustang

2016 Camaro first-drive – Look out, Mustang

Don’t underestimate the 2016 Camaro, or indeed how important it is. The chunky Transformers styling may border on the caricature from some angles, but the Camaro is deadly serious when it comes to winning new converts to GM: a full 63-percent of the outgoing model were General Motors virgins. So, when Chevrolet asked if I wanted to take the current engineering prototype out on the track, it seemed rude to say no.

LG G4 hands-on: Quantum physics, leather and a smarter camera

LG G4 hands-on: Quantum physics, leather and a smarter camera

There’s never been a tougher time to introduce a new smartphone, but LG thinks it has a hit on its hands with the new LG G4 for 2015. Building on last year’s G3 with a better camera, more high-quality materials, and a cleaner Android install, it may have a vaguely nonsensical tagline - “See the great. Feel the great” - but marketing hyperbole can usually be forgiven if the device lives up to expectations. I spent some time with the G4 to see why LG is talking Quantum Mechanics and movie theaters for its new flagship.

2016 Cadillac ATS-V First-Drive – BMW baiting

2016 Cadillac ATS-V First-Drive – BMW baiting

The 2016 Cadillac ATS-V is not your grandpa’s Caddy. Neither is it the BMW M3 or M4, despite the team responsible for the sedan and coupe duo admitting that the Bavarians were the primary target. V-Series has been Cadillac’s sledgehammer retort to German Autobahn-bruisers since 2004, and the ATS-V is the third generation of car to wear the badge. It’s straightforward in principle: take an existing Caddy, put it on a diet, slam a beefy engine under the hood, and market it as American power. Now, for the first time, the V-Series line is splitting, and it’s doing so in a mighty interesting way.

Apple Watch Diary – Getting to know you

Apple Watch Diary – Getting to know you

iPhone was hotly-rumored before 2007; iPad a frequent topic of debate prior to 2010; but it’s hard to argue that Apple Watch, reaching consumers’ wrists today, is the most controversial of Apple’s recent line-up. Even before Tim Cook & Co. announced the wearable in September last year, the pros and cons of an iOS-powered companion for your iPhone were splitting party lines, and that debate hasn’t eased any in the months between then and release. Now, though, the waiting is over. The preorders are arriving. And Apple Watch needs to prove to us it’s worth a spot on our arm.
