Mira Prism – a Daydream for augmented reality and iPhones

When Oculus gave virtual reality its second chance in the consumer market, it was largely expected that VR would be limited to powerful and expensive gear. Google, however, begged to differ and, thanks to Cardboard and now Daydream, it put VR into the hands, and heads, of anyone with a smartphone. Now a startup has envisioned a similar revolution, but this time on the augmented reality front.

Ugly iPhone 8 leak: If this is real, you won’t be happy

This afternoon a set of photos of the iPhone 8 - or what appears to be the iPhone 8 - leaked in China.

iPhone 8 Touch ID panic button tipped in new Apple patent

Apple is working on turning its biometric sensor into a secret panic button, with Touch ID potentially being used to send out a cry for help if you're getting mugged.
