dfree-1[CEATEC 2015] Growing old is a fact of life, and when we get closer to the age where we are about to bid this life goodbye, many things about our bodies – once so healthy and vibrant, start to break down. Well, it seems that pooping in one’s pants by accident is not the domain of those who are yet to be potty trained, but also folks who have lost control of their bowel movements, or are simply faced with a sudden attack of diarrhea. That would be a rather embarrassing moment, and it is something DFree hopes to prevent in the future. How does DFree work?

robohon-1[CEATEC 2015] Japan certainly has its fair share of quirks and craziness, just like any other country with its own identity. Well, we tend to associate giant robots with Japan, as well as all sorts of modern day inventions, and here is a convergence device that certainly has its fair share of zaniness.

This ride that clearly boasts of lines from the future, and it looks set to be the last of all the concept cars under the FCV badge until the production model hits the market.

mac-pro-appleThe last time we heard about the Mac Pro it was back in 2013 when it was first launched to the masses. However after that we did not hear about any upgrades or hardware refreshes to the computer, but given that the Mac Pro is quite the workhorse, we suppose its hardware is more than capable of lasting more than a year.
