HoloLens may be the next smartphone: ASUS in talks with Microsoft

HoloLens may be the next smartphone: ASUS in talks with Microsoft

This week ASUS CEO Jonney Shih has confirmed talks between ASUS and Microsoft on creating an ASUS HoloLens-like device. This headset would likely run Windows Holographic, the same system that Microsoft's own HoloLens runs. As Microsoft's goal, apparently, wasn't just to create a device, but a whole new category of devices, it should follow that a manufacturer like ASUS would jump aboard eventually. The ASUS headset wouldn't necessarily be called HoloLens - but it'd be very similar in implementation - it'd certainly be a headset, at least.

Google Glass 2 coming in 2016, but not for you

The second big release for Google Glass is on its way, but not in the way the remaining "Glass for Fun" enthusiasts might've hoped. Instead it would seem that those pushing for an enterprise angle for the headset have gotten their wish. This second-generation Google Glass won't be built for the public. It'll be built for businesses. While the possibility remains that Glass for Fun could pop up, for now it's more of a pipe dream for the average citizen and lover of leisure.

Impecca Alert Band: a brainwave fatigue monitor for drivers

Impecca Alert Band: a brainwave fatigue monitor for drivers

Tired drivers pose a risk to both themselves and those around them, and we've seen different types of technology that aim to keep groggy drivers alert. The Impecca Alert Band is counted among them, but comes in the form of a brainwave headset that stretches across one's forehead. As with other brainwave-monitoring headsets, the Impecca Alert Band keeps tabs on whether the driver is tired -- as indicated by their brain's data -- and then fires off an alert if it finds that you are. This will, in theory at least, allow drivers to get off the road before they become a safety hazard.

Melomind headset uses brainwaves to choose relaxation music

The latest brainwave headset to surface is called Melomind, and unlike the alternatives that promise to make you smarter or faster, this one aims to relax users by delivering customized music playlists that change to cater to one's current brainwave data. It works in conjunction with a mobile app (both Android and iOS) through which the data is parsed and the music is delivered; it essentially peeks inside of your brain when you're stressed and determines how best to calm you down.
