Getting up and around on a bicycle is one thing – it not only helps you to reduce your overall carbon footprint, but it also gives you the opportunity to get some exercise in at the same time. Having said that, you might have taken all of the relevant precautions to ensure that you are seen while on the road, but there are instances where drivers are so into their smartphones while driving, or are simply daydreaming, that they fail to see you right until the very last moment, which could lead to some rather harrowing experiences. Bicycle helmets are worn to offer protection in the event of a fall or an accident, but here is a new smart bike helmet that will “talk” to cars, warning them that you are there on the road – and vice versa.

Our smartphone camera apps helps us take photos, and in the case of more advanced apps, it gives us manual controls by allowing us to tweak its settings like exposure, shutter speed, ISO, and so on. However it seems that camera apps could potentially have other uses that we might not have thought of, like helping autistic kids overcome social anxiety.

Samsung has recently come up with an app called “Look At Me”. This is an app designed by Samsung which they claim will help autistic kids overcome their social anxiety and have better eye contact and relations with those around them. Basically the app will be an interactive and playful one that lets its user, the autistic child, get more out of it than they would from a regular app. Read full post →Samsung’s Look At Me Camera App To Aid Autistic Children’s Development

htc one review m8 labshot 12 640x359We have been hearing a fair bit of rumors regarding the HTC Hima, the alleged successor to the HTC One M8. Well if you’re looking for more confirmation of its hardware specs, Upleaks has recently posted a bunch of specs of the handset which more or less confirms what we have already known so far.

Of course all of this is just rumor and speculation for now, but hopefully the actual handset doesn’t stray too far from the rumored specs as it certainly sounds pretty good. The HTC Hima is rumored to feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chipset with 3GB of RAM, a 5-inch Full HD display, a 20.7MP rear-facing camera, and interestingly enough Upleaks has suggested we could be looking at a 13MP front-facing camera or a 4MP UltraPixel front camera instead.

macbook air 2013 3 800x270 640x216As it stands Apple has MacBook Air laptops that come in 11-inch or 13-inch sizes, both of which are extremely portable, but we guess for those who would prefer a happy middle, like a 12-inch MacBook Air, you might have heard the rumors that such a computer could be in the works. Well according to new reports, the laptops are expected to enter into mass production come Q1 2015.

This is according to a report from DigiTimes which claims that production of the laptop is expected to begin in the early part of the year. However this seems to contradict an earlier report which suggested that the 12-inch MacBook Air was already in limited production, but then again these are just rumors so they’re best taken with a grain of salt for now.

kodakKodak is probably a name that most of you guys would associate with imaging products, like cameras, film, and we guess to a certain extent even photo printers. They are not necessarily a brand that one would associate with mobile devices, but it looks like that could change soon. The company has recently announced a partnership with the Bullitt Group where both companies will work together to showcase new Android devices at CES 2015.

Unfortunately at this point in time save for the announcement itself, not much is known about Kodak and Bullitt’s upcoming products. However according to a statement made by Oliver Schulte, the CEO of Bullitt Mobile, “Kodak is one of the world’s most recognisable brands. It is trusted by consumers as a marque of quality and innovation. We’ve taken that heritage and used it to inspire a range of beautifully designed devices that will let users take great pictures and edit, share, store and print them in an instant.” Read full post →Kodak To Unveil Android Devices At CES 2015

google car 640x425You might recall that earlier this year, Google took the wraps off their self-driving car prototype which looked more like a buggy and looked like it was in its really early stages of planning. Well it seems that Google is done and have recently announced that they have completed their first fully functional prototype of their self-driving car.

As you can see in the image above, it does not look like Google has done much in terms of its design. However some obviously changes would be its sensor on the roof which appears to have been better integrated into the vehicle, where previously it looked like it was just strapped to the roof.

sony northkorea hack 640x359When it was “confirmed” by the FBI that North Korea was behind the hack of Sony Pictures, the US government had promised that they would launch an appropriate response.

According to reports, it seems that North Korea’s internet is down and under attack. While it is unclear as to who might be responsible for the attack, some have speculated the US government due to their promise of a response, but this is just speculation for now. Apparently the attacks started last Friday, worsened over the weekend, before it was finally taken offline. Read full post →North Korea’s Internet Knocked Offline In Speculated Attack
