Vuzix Blade 3000 smart glasses hands-on: Spectacles’ less-dorky cousin

Vuzix Blade 3000 smart glasses hands-on: Spectacles’ less-dorky cousin

Snapchat's Spectacles may have given wearable cameras the consumer-acceptance Google Glass never had, but a far more capable set of specs could steal their thunder. Vuzix - which has been pushing head-mounted displays for several years now, though primarily to enterprise users and developers - brought its latest glasses to CES this week, the Blade 3000. While at first glance they might look like regular glasses, they're actually outfitted with a transparent display.

BMW i Inside Future concept makes the dashboard a tactile hologram

BMW i Inside Future concept makes the dashboard a tactile hologram

So far, there's been no lack of autonomous cars at CES, but BMW is taking things in a different direction with its i Inside Future concept. While the concept is steeped in a future where autonomous cars are the norm, it has little to do with the technology that will make these cars go. Instead, this "sculpture," as BMW is calling it, deals entirely with what our car interiors could look like once we make the jump to fully autonomous car.

LG giving up on modular design with G6 smartphone

LG giving up on modular design with G6 smartphone

As was rumored as far back as October, LG has essentially admitted that its take on the modular smartphone with last year's G5 hasn't panned out, and it will be moving away from the strategy with the upcoming LG G6. Fortunately the company isn't giving up on smartphones altogether after the G5 and its add-on "Friends" modules flopped with consumers, with LG's Chief Technologist Skott Ahn telling the Wall Street Journal that it's "not something we would consider."

Razer Project Valerie hands-on at CES 2017: 3-screen laptop gaming is here

The Razer Project Valerie laptop has three displays - and all three are really, truly dedicated to gaming. Each of these displays is connected to the base computer, creating a laptop that's thicker than the company's standard Razer Blade, but all the more versatile as a result. While this notebook isn't the sort we'll be trusting around clumsy miscreants while engaged, the hardware used to make this project a reality is well worth the gander.

Sony EXTRA BASS headphones bring the thump wherever you go

Sony EXTRA BASS headphones bring the thump wherever you go

Sony says that today’s music is mostly characterized by “heavy-hitting bass lines and dropping beats.” That means you’ll need speakers that can handle those adequately, not exactly the domain of headphones, especially in-ear pieces. Not so, says Sony. At least not for its EXTRA BASS headphones. It is introducing four new such headsets at CES 2017, two wireless, one wired, and one in-ear. All with deep bass notes, convenient smartphone integration and, in the case of one, even noise cancellation.

Casio Smart Outdoor Watch 2 comes with Android Wear 2.0, GPS

Casio Smart Outdoor Watch 2 comes with Android Wear 2.0, GPS

If you ever needed proof that Android Wear is still alive, Casio just gave one. Somewhat. Almost exactly year after it announced its first smartwatch, the WSD-F10, the famed watch maker is announcing its second Smart Outdoor Watch, the WSD-F20. And while the big new feature here, at least as far as hardware is concerned, is the addition of GPS functionality, smartwatch enthusiasts might be a bit more interested in its software. That’s because the WSD-F20 is coming with the already delayed and somewhat doubted Android Wear 2.0.

NVIDIA GeForce NOW can now stream games to PCs, Macs

NVIDIA GeForce NOW can now stream games to PCs, Macs

The bar for gaming PCs is being set higher and higher each year, faster than some gamers can catch up with. But just because your still fully functional PC doesn’t meet a game’s minimum requirements doesn’t mean you have to give up on gaming. And just because you don’t have a PC at all doesn’t mean you’ll have to miss out on PC titles. NVIDIA is proposing a middle ground called GeForce NOW, which, for a fee, gives gamers, whether on PCs, Macs, or even Android-based SHIELD, the ability to play some of the biggest PC titles. All without installing anything other than the GeForce NOW app.
