Google wants to be the AI eyes in drones, robots, and apps

Google wants to be the AI eyes in drones, robots, and apps

Google is throwing open the computer vision system that powers Google Photos to third-party developers, helping them to filter out obscene images, spot faces and landmarks, and more.

Super Smash Bros Project M is ended, team heads to new project

Super Smash Bros Project M is ended, team heads to new project

The bummer in this situation is the fact that the original team of developers will no longer be working on Project M. The good news is - they're not quitting the business altogether. A side-project, mostly for the fun of it, isn't going to be the end-point for the people behind the popular Super Smash Bros mod-makers, and the mods that've already been made will remain in operation for the foreseeable future.

Google OnHub has Chrome OS inside

A group of developers opens up the Google OnHub smart router's software to find that it runs Chrome OS. That means the device is a Chromebook - or a Chrome... Hub... as it were. While it doesn't mean you're going to be connecting the machine to a display and using it as a Chromebox any time soon, it does mean that there's far more potential for this OnHub device than Google is letting on initially. This all points to smart home control.

Google releases Live Wallpaper called “Meter”

Google releases Live Wallpaper called “Meter”

Today the folks at Google Creative Lab have harnessed some odd Android abilities to produce their very own Live Wallpaper. This wallpaper goes by the name "Meter" and provides an Android smartphone or tablet user with a series of geometric shapes that change color based on your device's signal strength, battery life, and notifications count. While all Live Wallpapers use more power than their non-live compatriots, this might be a good example of a time to throw caution to the wind.

Microsoft HoloLens release and pricing set for Q1 2016

The first Development Edition of the Microsoft HoloLens headset is set to be released in the first quarter of 2016. This headset's "development edition" will be titled as such because it'll be made for people wishing to create apps and games for the headset before the headset's first full consumer release. This is a similar release setup to Samsung's GearVR and Oculus' Rift developer edition releases, coming first with early editions to get developers interested, following up then with a real headset for consumers later.
