Logitech ConferenceCam Connect puts video chat in stick

Logitech ConferenceCam Connect puts video chat in stick

There's clearly a trend toward slightly-ominous slender cylinders in tech: first Amazon's Echo, and now Logitech has put the form-factor to use as a portable Full HD video conferencing gadget. The Logitech ConferenceCam Connect may at first glance look like a fancy sippy-cup for commuters to tote their coffee around in, but it's actually a fancy 1080p camera with ZEISS optics and integrated wireless, capable of turning a smartphone or tablet into an impromptu display, and linking roving employees into their company's video conferencing systems.

ThinkCentre Tiny-in-One 23 with ThinkCentre M83 PC Review

ThinkCentre Tiny-in-One 23 with ThinkCentre M83 PC Review

One of the biggest criticisms of all-in-one PCs is the inability to upgrade hardware if necessary. Lenovo has addressed that issue with its ThinkCentre Tiny-in-One 23, an all-in-one monitor with an open slot in the back in which users can slide certain slim Lenovo PCs. Connectors built into the monitor connect to the PC, which can then be accessed through "wings" on the back of the monitor that expose its various ports. Likewise, a couple of USB ports are offered on the front of the monitor for ease of access, ultimately providing a typical AiO experience. Sound interesting? Read our full SlashGear review to find out!

Was 2014 really the hottest year on record?

Was 2014 really the hottest year on record?

Is climate change real, has the Earth got warmer, and was 2014 truly the hottest year on record? NASA waded into the heated argument over heat with unequivocal claims that we can't ignore rising temperatures, citing not only its own numbers but those of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and concluding the environment is getting hammered by greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide. However, while the claims may be bold, other researchers are less convinced that the results are so clean-cut, arguing that the sheer complexity of taking an average of the world's temperature leaves certainties far from reach.

Twitch does Music with new library and broadcasting option

Twitch does Music with new library and broadcasting option

Perhaps taking a cue from YouTube's recent foray into the realm of music, Twitch.tv, more known for its game-related streaming videos, is now dipping its toes into that medium as well. But no, Twitch isn't going to start showing music videos, at least not in the same way. Putting at slight twist to the category, Twitch is offering two types of music channels, one with a library of hassle-free music for live broadcasts, and another for actually broadcasting original music content.

Eight things you need to know about Project Ara

Project Ara isn’t just about Google inventing a new phone, it’s also the company’s ATAP team leading the mobile industry by the hand through exactly what the benefits of a module device actually are.

Google, Skype race to tear down language barriers

Google, Skype race to tear down language barriers

It feels like an attempt to reverse the effects or even create a new Tower of Babel, but this time no actual towers are involved (unless you count cell towers). The bridging of languages is, instead, being done over the Internet, in real time, and using your voice. And at the forefront of these advancements in technology are Google and Skype (and by proxy, Microsoft) who are now starting to compete not for the best voice chat service, but for which one can translate a spoken word better.

Philips hue heats up to fight smart bulb tide: Interview

Connected lighting seems determined to be the point of entry to domestic home automation, and there are plenty - startups and larger - hoping to corner the market.

I stopped by to get a demo of the newest 12 Monkeys hue light-soundtrack support, as well as to find out what's coming up next as the smart home accelerates.

Nissan, NASA to collaborate on self-driving cars for 2015

Nissan and NASA make for strange bedfellows, especially when the bed isn't exactly something that will roll out in outer space. And yet the car maker and the space agency have struck up a deal that will see the two working together on autonomous drive vehicles, the current holy grail in automotive technology. The exchange of technologies and ideas is aimed to help both organizations, but Nissan will be the first to show the fruits of that partnership before the year ends.
