UrtheCast reveals UHD full color videos of cities as seen from space

UrtheCast, which has been working steadily on getting video of our planet as seen from the International Space Station, has introduced the first videos in full color of Earth as seen from space -- that, at least, the average person and businesses have access to.

NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV update 1.2 – the best gets a boost

In addition to a new slew of games being released over the past few days, NVIDIA SHIELD is about to get a kick in the Android TV software pants.

New security technology allows emoji for passwords

Imagine instead of having to type four digits as a security PIN, you could just type the sunglasses smiley, blue heart, top hat, and thumbs up emoji? Well, new security software from the UK's Intelligent Environments could soon allow just that. The company says they have developed a system that would allow symbols, namely emoji, to be used instead of numbers in a PIN code. This makes PINs easier to remember, but, even better, data shows they can actually be more secure than just digits.

Five unusual Android launchers to spruce up your phone

One of the benefits of Android's openness is that many of its parts can be replaced by third party apps and services.

You might have heard of launchers like Nova, Apex, Go, or even Google's own Google Now, but here are five more that you won't usually read about in the news unless they have a major update or release.

Volta offers free electric car charging, supported by advertising

While electric cars are slowly becoming more and more common in the US, easily accessible charging stations are taking even longer to catch up.

Japan’s Takram develops paper-based input for projected display

The idea of collaborating with coworkers in person while using a tablet the size of a table-top has always sounded cool — it was Microsoft's first vision for the Surface, after all — but it's still likely to be a long ways off. However, Japanese design firm Takram has come up with an idea for an interactive digital table that is just as cool, but even more elegant in execution. It's completely based on paper, or rather "On the Fly Paper," and it developed for Intel's Japanese Collaboration Center.
