FLIR ONE Thermal camera for Android hands-on

FLIR ONE Thermal camera for Android hands-on

Today we've gotten the opportunity to work with the Android version of FLIR ONE, a mobile device thermal imager accessory. This device is effectively a camera in and of itself, requiring only that you use your smartphone as its display. It even has its own power source, with a micro-USB port for charging up its own internal battery. What we've seen here opens up our eyes and our minds to a whole new way of seeing the world - like a Predator, of course.

New Samsung Tizen smartphones coming later this year

New Samsung Tizen smartphones coming later this year

Surprise, surprise! Despite lack of word or whisper, Samsung isn't about to give up on its Tizen plans for world domination, especially when its one and only smartphone so far is reportedly selling well in the one and only region it's available. Insider sources even claim that the Korean OEM has plans to put out more, which means not just one, handsets running this less known mobile platform sometime later this year. Those devices will supposedly embrace a wide range of prices, which could mean we will finally get to see a high end Tizen smartphone, if such a thing even exists.

Samsung develops new tech that could double Li-on battery life

Samsung develops new tech that could double Li-on battery life

As our smart-devices become capable of doing more, it usually means that battery life takes a back seat, especially as smart-devices keep shrinking. Samsung researchers have developed a new method of constructing lithium-ion batteries that tackles the issue of extending battery life on a nanoscale. The use of silicon in lithium-ion batteries is a widely researched development, but a caveat to using silicon as an active material in Li-On batteries is that its volume drastically changes through charge-discharge cycles. This can lead to weakening the battery's life cycle energy density.

Samsung invests in FOVE eye-tracking VR headset

Samsung invests in FOVE eye-tracking VR headset

Samsung may have its own virtual reality tech, but that hasn't stopped it from investing in eye-tracking headset startup FOVE. The head-worn display has already raised almost twice its quarter-million Kickstarter goal of $250,000 with more than a week to spare, but in the meantime its combination of 3D graphics that respond not only where your head is pointing, but where in the scene your eyes are actually looking, has caught the attention of Samsung Ventures, the investment arm of the South Korean firm.

Samsung NX mini 2 leaked to bring 4K to mirrorless compact

Samsung NX mini 2 leaked to bring 4K to mirrorless compact

It's been well over a year since Samsung brought the NX mini to light, a petite member of its mirrorless NX camera family. So it is no surprise to hear word that a successor is already close to being revealed. Named the NX mini 2, because what else would it be called, this mirrorless compact presents somewhat of a mixed bag, removing some features in exchange for new ones. The biggest draw for this mini camera, however, will be its ability to shoot 4K videos in such a small size.

Samsung NX1 firmware 1.3 tackles video recording quality

It's been a while since we've last heard about the Samsung NX1 and its 4K video capability. And although it has practically been superseded by the NX500 early this year, Samsung hasn't lost love for its first 4K digital camera just yet. It has just announced a new firmware 1.3 upgrade available for owners. While the new software upgrades the camera's capabilities across both stills and video, a lot of the emphasis has been made on improving the quality of the camera's Full HD video recording.

Samsung is disabling Windows Update on some PCs it sells

More than a few of us have some nasty stories we can tell about Windows Update trying to reboot your machine at an inopportune moment. I think most Windows users will agree that using a machine without all the latest Windows updates in place is asking for trouble. Often those updates are patching vulnerabilities in the OS that could allow hackers access to your data. It appears that Samsung might be blocking Windows Update on some of the PCs it sells.
