RED Hydrogen One Titanium is finally available if you can afford it

RED Hydrogen One Titanium is finally available if you can afford it

RED, a company better known for its digital cinematography cameras, has had a rather interesting history with its first even and so far only smartphone, the Hydrogen One. Its promise of a glasses-free holographic display has mostly been downplayed if not doubted and its price tag has been ridiculed. One thing you can't say about the company is that it doesn't keep its promises. After months of delay, the Titanium version of the Hydrogen One is finally shipping and early believers won't have to do a thing to get it.

The RED Hydrogen ONE phone modules mystery begins

This weekend a little bit of the text was removed from the official listing of the RED Hydrogen ONE, a smartphone of some repute. This smartphone was released by the camera-focused company as a premium handset. Part of the proposition and the promise for this phone was in its backside array of pogo pins, through which it'd become a much more versatile, connected machine. Today it would appear that this dream has disappeared.

Amazon Echo RED is back for a cause

Smart speakers are designed to be at the logical and visual center of the smart homes of today but, ironically, they aren't exactly designed to suit everyone's aesthetic tastes. Companies seem to expect that all such rooms are going to complement smart speakers' somber blacks, grays, or whites. That's why when alternative colors come officially, they become quite the sensation. But the 2nd gen Amazon Echo isn't going red just for appearances. It's doing it for a worthy cause.

RED Hydrogen One Titanium delayed, free Aluminum for preorders

If you’re making one of the most technologically advanced smartphones in the market, you’re bound to hit delays. When you’re using a rare and expensive material to make it, you’re bound to hit more than a few snags, too.

There’s no telling when it will actually ship so CEO Jim Jannard is offering a compensation that no other smartphone maker would dare make: a free $1,000 phone.

Facebook, RED reveal Manifold 360-degree camera

Facebook may be in trouble for dipping its hands into too many things but it isn’t backing out from its mission of being at the center of modern life. And quite literally too. Envisioning a future where VR and 360-degree content is the norm (which is why it acquired Oculus), Facebook has partnered with pro camera maker RED Digital Cinema to develop the Manifold camera that will sit at the center of where the action happens to record everything in clear detail from all angles to be delivered to your VR-capable headset. Preferably an Oculus Rift, Go, or Quest.

If so, the good news is that the camera will finally arrive before the year ends, presuming there are no problems along the way. Even better, true believers can sign up to get a Houdini developer model months ahead of everyone else. That privilege, however, comes at a cost. You cannot publicize anything non-constructive about the device or risk having your phone remotely bricked.
