Razer Nabu launches again, for real this time

It's kinda telling when a "second gen" product ships before its predecessor. Technically speaking, the Razer Nabu X is a sort of a different wearable, but still, the display-toting Razer Nabu was announced a full year before it.

FAA ‘B4UFLY’ drone safety app enters beta

The FAA doesn’t take improper drone usage lightly, and while it has gone after operators in violation of regulations, it is also working to educate the public on what it can and can’t do in an effort to prevent the issues from happening.

Tencent QQ Watch wearable for kids is rugged, colorful

The QQ Watch is colorful and styled in such a way that it resembles a legitimate smartwatch, though the wearable isn't as functional as something the child's parent may be wearing.
