SlashGear Morning Wrap-up: January 16th, 2013

This morning the automotive madness continues with the ultra-hot all-digital instrument panel for the 2014 Corvette Stingray. The folks at Bang & Olufsen are shuttering shops across the nation as smaller groups like Leap Motion take off into outer space. You can also purchase a $500 HAL 9000 replica now if you’d like, proving it’s not the economy that’s dying, it’s just certain sectors (nerd loving nostalgia not included).

Google Glass (or Project Glass if you prefer) has launched several new news bits, one of them sort of shunning international developers as USA developers are called in to work. The big Google Glass developer events are in San Francisco and New York, mind you. Researchers are projecting wearables like Google Glass to surge by 2017, due in no small part to the release of Google Glass here in 2013.

You’ll be able to pick up the game the Cave starting on January 22nd. There’s been a rather sizable accusation today by AMD that former employees had raided document shelves prior to moving to NVIDIA – this is a big deal even (and perhaps especially) if it isn’t true. If you’re hoping for Pokemon on your iPhone, it might be coming soon.

You’ll want to see the tablet known as Kite HD, running both Ubuntu Linux and Android with a quad-core processor under the hood. There’s a deal going on right now with Windows 8’s app collection where the developer favorite gets their own television advertisement. And don’t go any further today before you realize that Jerry McDougal has resigned.
