DJI Ronin-S hands-on: One-handed stabilization for DSLR

The DJI Ronin-S we're looking at right now is going to take some courage to use for several reasons. Not least of these reasons is the fact that you're going to be holding on to a metal rod that is in turn holding on to your very expensive DSRL or mirrorless camera. On the positive side, this equipment comes from DJI, and we have no good reason not to trust it with said very expensive camera.

Mikme wireless mic hands-on: recording studio in your pocket

Mikme wireless mic hands-on: recording studio in your pocket

There is a lot of attention being paid these days to the recording and display of high-quality video on mobile devices, but when it comes to audio, it’s still a lopsided game.

Fortunately, there’s Mikme, a successfully crowdfunded wireless microphone that delivers studio-grade audio recording capabilities in a box not that much bigger than your iPhone.

Sony Aibo hands-on at CES 2018: In the USA to make us envious

Today we got our first chance to take a look at the newest version of Sony Aibo. This is the electronic puppy dog that Sony re-introduced to the world late last year after an extended time of darkness. That is, a time without the doggy. People loved this dog's predecessor. They loved this robot dog's family members so much, they had funerals for them when they "died." Now, here in Las Vegas in January of 2018, we get to see the greatest robot puppy again.

HP Z 3D Sprout camera add-on hands-on

HP Z 3D Sprout camera add-on hands-on

The HP Sprout desktop, announced way back in 2014, was already an odd idea. It basically mounted a 3D camera on top of an all-in-one PC that let you scan both 3D and 2D objects. Its near $2,000, at least back then, price tag didn’t help its cause either. Still believing that this is the future of computer input and interaction, HP has tried to make the technology more accessible, in both form and price. Enter the HP Z 3D camera, which is basically the Sprout camera, detached, and compatible with almost any Windows system, preferably HP’s, of course.

Milo smart speaker doubles as home hub, Google Assistant inside

CES is usually a time for big announcements but, this year, there is a somewhat silent undercurrent happening. An army is silently growing, made up of smart speakers that integrate this or that AI assistant. But, smart as they are, they are often just another device you have to add to your network. Startup Hogar Controls thinks it has the solution. Meet Milo, a smart speaker that almost looks like any other smart speaker, except for one invisible talent. It can also double as the central hub for your smart home instead of being just another node in the network.
