Hyundai Blue Link smartwatch app wrist-on

Smartwatches are popping up everywhere here at CES 2015, even in cars! As reported earlier, Hyundai is indeed bringing its Blue Link system to the showroom floor and it is bringing it to your wrist. The Android Wear incarnation of the app, as expected, lets you control certain functions of your Blue Link-enabled Hyundai car by talking to your wrist, which probably brings to mind many a spy or sci-fi show. We take a hands-on, or a wrist-on rather, tour of what Hyundai has in mind when it comes to wearables.

Hands-on with Livescribe’s new Android support

While Livescribe might not have a shiny new gadget to show off at CES 2015, it still has some very big news to share.

HTC Desire 826 hands-on: Ultrapixel selfie machine

HTC Desire 826 hands-on: Ultrapixel selfie machine

The team at HTC haven't brought their next super-hero phone to CES 2015 (not yet, at least), but they have brought a bit of a surprising piece of hardware. This is the HTC Desire 826, another selfie-friendly device the likes of which we've seen in a very similar model - the HTC Desire EYE. Unlike the EYE, this Desire 826 is coming to market with two different models, each with a different front-facing camera. One replicates the EYE with 13-megapixels, the other with 4-Ultrapixels, the same as the back-facing camera on the HTC One.

Mercedes-Benz F 015 self-driving car in-depth: AI & lasers

Mercedes-Benz teased something big - figuratively and literally - for CES 2015, and the F 015 Luxury in Motion autonomous car ticks both boxes. Latest in the German marque’s F line of prototypes and proofs-of-concept, the F 015 is a luxury lounge on wheels, as Mercedes flirts not only with how cars of tomorrow might pilot themselves, but what those inside will do with the extra time they’ve suddenly had handed to them. Strikingly long, with color-changing LED lights on the outside to show if the AI is in charge and four electrically pivoting seats inside, it’s Mercedes’ take on what transport could look like in 2030 and beyond.

Sony SmartEyeglass Attach hands-on: any glasses made smart

Sony SmartEyeglass Attach hands-on: any glasses made smart

Last year Sony revealed their first SmartEyeglass prototype to a bit of a tepid crowd - this year they've been a bit mum about the project as it hits a second generation. The "SmartEyeglass Attach!" as its called works with a high-resolution color OLED Microdisplay near the right eye and works with its own high-powered ARM Cortex A7 processor. It's made to be a bit more versatile than the original, and here aims to get sporty as well - look how well they attach to a pair of snowboard goggles, for instance - so sport-ready!

LaCie Mirror Hard Drive hands-on: not to be touched

LaCie Mirror Hard Drive hands-on: not to be touched

The LaCie Mirror is a hard-drive for those that keep very good care of their electronics. Not to be dropped, jabbed, or fingerprinted, this machine's outer bits were designed by Pauline Deltour, made to be displayed on an ebony stand that comes with the unit. This device has 1TB of storage inside as well - if you actually want to use it for its intended functionality, of course. You could potentially also use it for a mirror, as it is exceptionally reflective and set at an angle that supports you looking at yourself.

Sony Smartwatch 3 Steel Edition hands-on

Sony Smartwatch 3 Steel Edition hands-on

While its innards aren't all that different from its original release, the Sony Smartwatch in Steel brings the heat with a body that's all-metal. It's Stainless Steel, high-quality looking and high-quality to the touch. This device still has a 1.6-inch "transflective" display so you'll have a slightly better viewing experience than you would with competing square Android Wear devices - outdoors, anyway. This display is 320 x 320 pixels tight, and with this metal band, the entire setup is a whole lot better a warrior in this wearable battle.
