Google Maps next for Material Design revamp

Google has been on a roll recently, updating its core app suite with Material Design style, and next in line is Google Maps. Both the Android and the iPhone versions of the popular navigation app are getting a revamp, with cleaner graphics, more intuitive controls, and a look that meshes with the Android 5.0 Lollipop aesthetic. Although the most obvious changes are to the design, though, that's not to say there aren't new features tucked in there as well, including closer integration with third-party services like OpenTable and Uber.

Onyx: the Star Trek communicator made real

After a year in development, the team at OnBeep have created a device by the name of Onyx. This device closely replicates the abilities of a walkie-talkie, a push-to-talk phone, and of course - a Star Trek communicator. One from The Next Generation, of course, not one of those old-school communicators you had to hang on your belt. That'd just be madness... or a smartphone. The Onyx was made to work in emergency situations at first, but it's prepared to work in any environment in the real world.

Concept app Intuitive Voting wants you to vote from your phone

Here are a few questions for you: Do you know who your district council-members are? What topics are on your ballot? Where is your local polling station? If you couldn’t answer those, don’t feel bad. We’re not a hyper-politicized society, but we are hyper connected. Even if you couldn’t answer those questions, you could probably tell us where your smartphone is. Oddly enough, election day and your smartphone still haven’t made themselves know to one another, but there’s an app concept that would change that, and it’s amazing.

Angry Birds Transformers released – and not half bad

Angry Birds Transformers released – and not half bad

It should come at somewhat of a surprise that we'd recommend you pick up the Angry Birds Transformers release. It's out today, and it's ready to roll out with... a very strange format. Instead of letting birds loose at your enemy piggies with a slingshot, you're shooting them with your wrist cannons and transforming your body to take them on in 3D space. If nothing else this is certainly the most unique take on Angry birds we've seen thus far. It might even be described as FUN.
