Lumus DK-40 hands-on: Glass put on notice

Lumus DK-40 hands-on: Glass put on notice

Lumus has brought its DK-40 wearable to CES 2014, showing off the new developer unit in public for the first time. The monocular headset is, like Google's Glass, an Android-powered wearable computer, but whereas Glass floats a small window for notifications and such in the upper corner of your eye, the DK-40 actually overlays a full VGA digital image over the right eye instead. We grabbed some hands-on time to see whether it lived up to our expectations from the original prototype we tried all the way back in early 2012.

Enter PocketBook's accessory case for the Galaxy S 4, a fold-out case complete with a 4.8-inch e-paper screen on the inside of the cover. The concept is simple: browse to a book you want to read on the phone, and then flip it over to the e-paper display for low-power reading.

3Doodler hands-on: 3D printing for the mass market

3Doodler hands-on: 3D printing for the mass market

Kickstarter success 3Doodler proved there was a market for 3D printing without the geek requirement, but can crafting in the third-dimension really be as easy as wielding a hot nib? True, you won't be creating any replacement machine parts, but with a $99.99 price tag that's probably no surprise. We caught up with the $2.3m funding success at ShowStoppers at IFA 2013 to try our hand.
