Ford’s new Silicon Valley lab isn’t all pie-in-the-sky

Ford’s new Silicon Valley lab isn’t all pie-in-the-sky

Self-driving cars are undoubtedly the most attention-grabbing project at Ford's new tech outpost in Palo Alto, but it's not all the team is working on, and other schemes are far closer to helping modern drivers. The Research and Innovation Center is also exploring how digital dashboards can be smarter, how smart home gadgets like Nest can play nicely with your car, and even how a little Project Ara style modularity could make Fords more future-proof. Read on for three of the more down-to-earth - and potentially closer to production cars at your nearest Ford dealer - projects underway.

NVIDIA Tegra X1 benchmarks put Apple A8x on notice

Last year, NVIDIA opened CES with its pre-show keynote and the Tegra K1; for CES 2015, it’s the turn of the Tegra X1. NVIDIA’s latest mobile super-chip takes the Maxwell GPU as one half of its beating heart, paired with an 8-core, 64-bit ARM processor. It’s arriving in devices like smartphones, tablets, and car dashboards this year, but we grabbed some early hands-on time to get a taste of what NVIDIA believes will thoroughly squash Apple’s A8x.

Google’s Project Ara adds NVIDIA and Marvell chips

Google’s Project Ara adds NVIDIA and Marvell chips

Google's Project Ara modular smartphone may be yet to convince everyone that it solves a legitimate problem, but we now at least know it won't be lacking power, with Marvell and NVIDIA both cooking up processor modules for the phone. NVIDIA is creating a Project Ara application processor module from its Tegra K1 - the same potent chipset found inside the Nexus 9 tablet, for instance - according to Google project chief Paul Eremenko, while Marvell is doing the same with its PXA1928 quadcore. It's not the only sign of manufacturer support for Google's big scheme to make future Androids piecemeal, either.

Nexus 9 LTE arrives at Google Play

Nexus 9 LTE arrives at Google Play

Just after T-Mobile brought their LTE version of the Nexus 9 tablet to the masses, Google Play released theirs as well. These two devices will be effectively the same, the only difference being - perhaps - that the T-Mobile USA version might end up loading some (deletable) T-Mobile apps once the LTE SIM card is activated. Both devices are on sale this afternoon, both online - it would also appear that both devices will share essentially the same price point at just under 600 dollars for a 32GB internal storage size unit.

Google Project Tango orders arriving for developers

Google's Project Tango has begun shipping, with the 3D tracking tablet arriving on developers' desks this week as they get started on new ways to blend the real-world with its digital counterpart. Pre-orders of the NVIDIA-powered Android slate began midway through this month, at a not-inconsiderable $1,024, though the sales window wasn't kept open for long.

NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet Android Lollipop Review

NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet Android Lollipop Review

This week we've had a look at what it means to be rolling with the NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet with a full Android 5.0 Lollipop upgrade. This isn't your everyday average upgrade - it's not like we're using the Nexus 9 that just happens to be branded by NVIDIA. Instead, this is the first non-Nexus tablet to receive the update, complete with NVIDIA's own apps under the hood. This is more than just a software update just for the sake of having the latest and greatest - this is a real-deal update of the abilities of the unit.
