One of the reasons why some people get motion sickness from playing video games or by using simulators such as the Oculus Rift is because there is a disconnect between what your eyes see and your inner ear. Basically your eyes see that your character on the screen is moving, but your inner ear doesn’t register that movement and that conflict can cause motion sickness in some.

Well if you were worried about motion sickness with the Oculus Rift, then perhaps taking the Oculus Rift for a ride on a rollercoaster should solve your problems! If that sounds a bit insane, that’s pretty much what a group of researchers from the Kaiserslautern University in Germany have done.

amazon samsung 640x392There are more 4K televisions starting to make their way into the market and there is a good chance that 4K could become the new standard in terms of display resolution. However we guess there are many who are still holding back on upgrading because not only are 4K devices expensive for the most part, but also because there isn’t a lot of 4K-optimized content available at the moment.

Now the good news is that if you’re a subscriber to Amazon Instant video, you might be pleased to learn that Amazon will begin streaming 4K video content starting from this October. This was a feature that had been announced earlier this year and we guess we now have a date to look forward to. Read full post →4K Amazon Instant Video To Kick Off This October



There are plenty of instant messengers out there for you to choose from, but if you wanted something a little more unique and interactive, then the Somebody app could for you. Basically instead of delivering messages to someone directly, the app will instead seek out someone near you to deliver the message instead.

Launched artist, author, and filmmaker Miranda July, it seems that the Somebody app is hoping that instead of burying our noses in our phones all the time, this app will help us get out of our phones and into the real world where we can potentially make a new friend by delivering a message to them.

tesla model s hackedElectric cars used to get a pretty bad rep back in the day due to the fact that for the most part, they weren’t as fast as their fuel counterparts, they were expensive, and had poor range. The poor range was also coupled with the fact that charging stations were few and far in between, meaning that it isn’t as easy to find one compared to a gas station.

That being said, it seems that Tesla is hoping to change that. Earlier this year, the company announced plans that they would be building a network of charging stations across China to help facilitate the rollout of electric cars, and now they have confirmed that they will indeed be doing that.

Back in 2013, Amazon unveiled a pretty awesome idea which is to use drones to make deliveries. This is a great idea because it would mean that some packages could be delivered on the same day that you ordered them. Unfortunately that idea has since been shot down by the FAA.

However it seems that the FAA’s reluctance to allow drone delivery has not stopped others from trying. Google is the latest to make their attempt in what the Google X Labs is calling Project Wing. Similar to other drone delivery programs, Project Wing will make use of a drone to make their deliveries. Read full post →Project Wing Is Google’s Attempt At A Drone Delivery Service


ASUS AT IFA 640x480Just yesterday ASUS pretty much confirmed the name of their upcoming smartwatch, which would be known as the ASUS ZenWatch. Now ASUS is expected to make it official and announce the product in earnest at IFA 2014 which kicks off next week, but in the meantime we’re sure some of you guys are wondering how much will the ZenWatch cost?

Well according to a recent report from Focus Taiwan, it seems that the ZenWatch’s price has been revealed.

backbeat pro sideview 536x640If you’re the market for a new pair of Bluetooth headphones, you might be interested to learn that Plantronics has recently taken the wraps off a new pair of headphones in the form of the BackBeat Pro. Given that Plantronics has had a pretty decent history of producing Bluetooth headphones and headsets, perhaps these pair of headphones could be worth your time.

The new BackBeat Pro headphones will sport 40mm drives and will also feature active noise cancelling technology. However as noise cancellation can be dangerous in public, Plantronics has included a feature called OpenMic which basically lets the wear hear what’s going on around them with a touch of a button.

healthkit 640x383Given how upset some people were at the idea of companies like Apple or Google possibly sharing their location data, we can only imagine how outraged some users would feel if information from iOS 8’s HealthKit were ever to be leaked or shared with unauthorized users. After all there could be sensitive and embarrassing information there that individuals would not care to share with the world.

That being said, a recent report from the Financial Times (via AppleInsider) have found that Apple has made some changes to HealthKit in the latest iOS 8 beta. According to the changes Apple made to iOS 8’s licensing agreement, the Cupertino company has restricted developers from selling or distributing information collected by HealthKit.

sony digital paper 640x203Earlier this year, Sony took the wraps off an interesting device called the Digital Paper. It is basically an e-reader/tablet that uses an e-ink display which we have to admit is a pretty unique device given its size. Prior to this, the tablet was only sold through a handful of retailers and was reportedly sold out most of the time.

It seems that Sony has decided that there could be enough demand for the Digital Paper and has since started to offer the device directly via Sony’s website as well as several other licensed resellers. Unfortunately for international customers who had their eye on the device, you would be out of luck as it seems that the sales of the tablet will be limited to the US for now.

nxpOver the past couple of days, we have been hearing several rumors that suggests that the iPhone 6 could come with NFC. The last report we heard was where well-connected Apple blogger John Gruber hinted at the possibility of NFC. Now if you are still skeptical, and rightfully so, another report from the Financial Times (via MacRumors) has “confirmed” NFC as a feature of the iPhone 6.

The report claims that the NFC technology that will be making its way into the iPhone 6 will be provided by Dutch company NXP Semiconductors. NXP is a company that has been known for their NFC chips so we guess it does not come as a complete surprise to think that they could be supplying Apple with the technology.
