Climbing Mount Everest with the HTC Vive Pre VR headset

Virtual reality is a strange place to visit, particularly when that virtual reality is a mountain you’ve never been to in person. At CES this week, NVIDIA showed off the HTC Vive Pre VR headset with a Mount Everest demonstration -- that is, a snowy digital landscape very carefully created to simulate the real thing, tents and all.

Solos peddles furiously away from bad Google Glass memories

Google Glass may have proved too goofy for everyday wear, but the ride to connected eyewear might prove to be on two wheels. Solos is pitching its smart sunglasses as the ideal accessory for dedicated cyclists, a head-up-display which floats performance data like speed, power, pace, and more in the line-of-sight, courtesy of a connection to a nearby smartphone.
