This streaming device allows you to stream thousands of channels in up to 4K — four times the resolution of Full HD. You can search using voice commands and at night, if you don’t want to wake your significant other, take advantage of the headphone jack on the remote control for movie nights. Did we mention it supports Netflix as well? Well, that’s a given at this point.
Not much bigger than an iPad Mini, the Nintendo Switch is the device that is ushering fans back to Nintendo after their lukewarm response to the Wii U. Dubbed a hybrid console, the Switch is powerful enough to run through your television and clever enough to transform into a handheld device for gaming on the go. Long gone are the days of needing a PlayStation and PSP, or GameCube and Gameboy, or Xbox and… Play everything from The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild to Super Mario Odyssey and tell us you aren’t charmed by it.
The Incognito: One of the problems with the Apple watch is that it looks like an Apple watch. Samsung’s, on the other hand, offers much of the same kind of functionality – the ability to make calls or send texts, fitness tracking, app compatibility – but looks like a classic watch. And that, for us, bodes much better as an everyday accessory.
Boasting a soft silicone exterior and booming audio – courtesy of one of the all-time leaders – this wireless speaker offers a good deal more than it looks like it should. With 8 hours of battery life, digital assistant compatibility, and water resistance, there’s little out there that can compete.
Facial recognition, built-in assistant, 4K sensor, HD recording, cloud storage. It sure sounds like it should be a phone, but that’s actually the highlight reel for the indoor Nest Cam IQ. It’s a sophisticated security camera that will feature Google Assistant and, not only could it help catch high-quality footage of intruders, it’s perfect for a whole range of other things: watch the kids, film and share, create time lapses, keep an eye out for friends/family about your home, or simply to use Google Assistant. As Nest so aptly puts it at the bottom of its site, “PS It’s beautiful.”
HTC is upping its virtual reality game. The new Vive Pro will offer enhanced resolution, integrated headphones and, perhaps most important, a new wireless adaptor that will let you finally roam virtual worlds untethered.
Choice paralysis is something that you may or may not have heard of, but you’ll definitely have been affected by. It’s the thing that happens when you’re given so many options that you end up not being able to make a decision at all.
The Action: For the adventuresome type, the GoPro Hero5 is a tried-and-true action camera that will keep up with you at every step. It’s small enough to come along whether you’re jumping from a plane or scaling a mountain and it still captures 4k video and 12 megapixel photos. It’s also waterproof to 33 feet without additional housing.
If Google Home isn’t your cup of tea or there is already an Amazon Echo in the home, the Amazon Echo Dot could be a good bolt-on gift for someone who wants the Alexa voice assistant extended throughout a property.
Autonomous cars gather up tons of data about the world around them, but even the best computer vision systems can’t see through brick and mortar. But by carefully monitoring the reflected light of a l
Since it is connected to the internet, it will keep getting better and better. Over the last couple of years, thousands of commands have been added, and many more will be added in the future, making it smarter and smarter. I, for one, welcome our robot overlords from the future.
It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s a spy satellite! Before the dawn of aerial photography, pigeons did the job. Flying over enemy territory with a camera on autoshoot, pigeons could provide crucial information without getting lost along the way. Beyond photography, the birds also carried messages at times when radio communication was spotty or down. Pigeons sent through enemy fire up until the 1950s had a 95 percent success rate and were duly decorated with medals of honor for their service.
