Sony’s groundbreaking robot dog is back with some new tricks. Equipped with an artificial intelligence boost for 2018, Aibo can now recognize and respond to multiple family members. And with its wireless cloud connectivity, it can store and process everything that it learns from living with you. Caveat emptor.
It’s not just a cool-looking voice assistant like the Amazon Echo and countless others. The Pebble’s twist: Melody, your guide, can recognize voices and change its activities based on the individual who’s talking. Plus, it really is an assistant, with the ability to manage your calendar.

This picture isn’t of one super-long screen, it’s three screens next to each other. The bezels are hidden, though, by Asus’ new antibezel kit. It uses lenses to refract the content on the screen edges at a 130-degree angle — essentially using a sort of stealth technology to hide them.
GoPro’s new flagship hero looks almost identical to the Hero5, but the Hero6 brings big improvements on the inside. A new processor means more speed for camera and boosted frame rate, enabling 4K video at 60fps and 1080 HD video at up to 240fps. That means dramatically smoother slow-motion playback and improved video stabilisation. The 12MP camera has a more dynamic colour range and performs better in low-light situations. The Hero6 is easily the best action camera out there.
This prototype phone shown by Chinese phonemaker Vivo has no official name, price or sale date. But its virtual home button, which appears only when you need it and then gets out of the way, may be a harbinger of things to come. It’s a killer feature that was rumored for both the iPhone X and Samsung Galaxy S8 — neither of which had it. We’re clinging to the hope that it finds its way onto the forthcoming Samsung Galaxy S9.
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.

You might have seen this puppy being demonstrated on some hapless watermelons (above). How it works is simple: the handle contains a cartridge of pressurized carbon dioxide, and a special trigger vents it through a channel in the blade. When you stab something with it—like, say, a shark —and release the gas, it causes an internal explosion, massively damaging the target. Needless to say, this is gross but impressive.
Don’t you wish you had a more graphical way of understanding whether your muscle building efforts are bearing fruit or not? Thankfully, there is now. The Skulpt Scanner is the world’s first and perhaps only device to date that’s fully capable of measuring the quality of muscle tissues in the human body. Unfortunately, developers have yet to include every single muscle of the human body in the Skulpt database. Nevertheless, the device can now accurately paint a picture of the status of the 24 different groups of muscles in the body. This allows you to understand which muscle groups need some work out.
Electric car startup Faraday Future debuted the FF 91 at CES 2017 in Las Vegas. It has self-parking, autonomous driving, a 378-mile range and ubiquitous screens all around the cabin. The FF 91 looks promising, but with production facilities only existing on paper at this stage, it’s reasonable to worry whether the car will ever roll out on the road.

It’s pretty obvious how the device works: rotate the inner wheel to displace the letters. M = G, P = J, etc. Simple to crack, right? Not if the message is written in a language you don’t know. Spies were tricky like that.

Downloading and reinstalling all Windows 10 apps reportedly fixes a stuck Start menu. This isn’t as drastic as it sounds — ‘Windows apps’ are the ones built into Windows 10 and available from the Windows Store. They used to be called ‘Modern’ apps and, before that, ‘Metro’ — Microsoft just changed the name with Windows 10.
