Oculus Rift Team Hit With Death Threats Following Facebook Acquisition

Tyler Lee March 31, 2014

Oculus Rift Team Hit With Death Threats Following Facebook AcquisitionWhen Facebook announced that they would be acquiring Oculus VR, not only were many people surprised, but many were apparently outraged as well. We’re not sure where all the anger is coming from, perhaps it could be that they’re worried Facebook might attempt to monetize the Oculus Rift through ads, perhaps they feel that Facebook might be trying to invade their gaming space, who knows?

All we know is that for the most part, most people just aren’t too happy about it. But could their unhappiness of the acquisition be warranted to the point where death threats are issued? According to Oculus VR’s founder, Palmer Luckey, he claims that he and his team have received death threats following the acquisition. (more…)

    Motorola Moto 360 Smartwatch Launched, powered by Android Wear
    Another day and another Smartwatch… less than a month after MWC, where numerous wearable devices were launched, Motorola just unveiled its own Smartwatch, powered by Android Wear, also announced today.

    We have received the information this morning and Motorola is sharing absolutely no information about the specifications, the exact availability date and the price. According to the dedicated website, the moto 360 will be available “this summer”.

    From the official blog post and what we learned this morning about Android Wear, we know that users will be able to activate voice commands by saying “Ok Google”,  to ask for a game score, a flight schedule, to set up an appointment in the calendar, to write a text message or a note or to set the alarm clock.

    Virgin Atlantic To Trial Google Glass To Increase Efficiency

    Tyler Lee February 11, 2014

    Virgin Atlantic To Trial Google Glass To Increase EfficiencyWhen you check-in for your flight, the typical process involves walking up to the person behind the desk, giving them your details, having them pull up your records, and then check-in your luggage if you have any. In some cases the process is fast, but in other cases it can take a while as well, which is why Virgin Atlantic has decided to partner up with IT specialist, SITA, to see if there is anything that can be done in terms of improving efficiency and the travel experience of their passengers by introducing wearable technology.

    Huawei Smartwatch Expected At MWC 2014

    Huawei Smartwatch Expected At MWC 2014

    The next popular manufacturer expected to jump on the wearable device bandwagon this year is Huawei. This company makes some of the most popular smartphones in China, and even though it has its sights set on the rest of its world, it will take a lot of time for Huawei to become a household name like Apple or Samsung. A Huawei smartwatch is expected to be unveiled at the Mobile World Congress 2014 in Barcelona later this month, the company itself hasn’t confirmed its wearable device plans as yet.

    Galaxy Gear 2 Rumored To Be Priced Lower Than iWatch

    Tyler Lee February 10, 2014

    Galaxy Gear 2 Rumored To Be Priced Lower Than iWatchThe Samsung Galaxy Gear does not come cheap, especially for a device that is in a relatively new market. At the same time it isn’t prohibitively expensive either, but with so many different smartwatches to choose from, perhaps Samsung could be looking at price as a differentiating factor for future Galaxy Gear devices. This is according to a new set of rumors which seems to suggest that Samsung could be feeling the pressure from the rumors that Apple could be prepping a smartwatch of their own called the iWatch and because of that, they could be thinking of lowering the price of the Galaxy Gear 2.

    According to the rumors, it has been suggested that Apple could price their iWatch at $299 which is the same price of the Galaxy Gear when it was first released. It is because of that that Samsung could be thinking of dropping the price of the Galaxy Gear 2 in order to make it a more attractive alternative piece of technology to the iWatch. Price is undoubtedly a factor many take into consideration when purchasing a gadget, but features matter too, so perhaps if the Galaxy Gear 2 were to be as impressive as the iWatch, then perhaps Samsung could beat out Apple on price. Either way take it with a grain of salt for now, but what do you guys think?

    LG Patent Reveals Smartwatch/Stylus Combo

    Tyler Lee February 7, 2014

    LG Patent Reveals Smartwatch/Stylus ComboWe’re not sure how many of you guys actually remember this, but back in the day, there were these toys/accessories that kids would wear. It was a strap that when you slapped onto your wrist, it would immediately curl up and form a bracelet. It was a pretty fun thing to do back then although we’re not sure if kids these days might appreciate it. That being said, perhaps LG might be interested in bringing it back to the modern day, thanks to a recent patent which revealed a possible plan for LG’s smartwatch.

    Typically smartwatches look like normal watches but have a little bit more functionality to it apart from the ability to only tell the time. Chances are some of them might come with a touchscreen display as well. However in this LG patent, it describes a smartwatch that can wrap itself around your wrist, looking more like a bracelet than a watch (as pictured above). Alternatively it seems that this smartwatch can be fully extended which in turn can be used as a stylus as well, so it’s a win-win situation! Of course there’s no telling if LG will ever embrace this concept but what we do know is that LG has a smartwatch in the works. How it looks like and what functions it has remains unknown, but it will definitely be worth keeping an eye on. In the meantime what do you guys make of this concept?

NYPD’s intelligence and analytics unit is said to be conducting Google Glass beta testing, claims VentureBeat, apparently the unit has received “several pairs” of Google Glass for this purpose.

    iWatch Battery Will Reportedly Use LG Technology

    iWatch Battery Will Reportedly Use LG Technology

    Rumors about the iWatch keep coming in, despite the fact that Apple hasn’t so much as hinted if it is going to jump on the wearable device bandwagon in 2014. Last week it was rumored that perhaps iWatch will come with solar charging capabilities, it was also claimed that perhaps the battery would be charged by harnessing energy produced by the users’ swinging arm. According to new reports coming out of Korea, apparently the company isn’t going for any of this, instead its relying on more traditional lithium-ion battery.

    Razer Nabu Received A Lot Of Interest From Developers

    Tyler Lee February 5, 2014

    Razer Nabu Received A Lot Of Interest From DevelopersDuring CES 2014, we were treated to a new wearables device from gaming peripheral manufacturer, Razer, in the form of the Razer Nabu. The device has been designed to be similar to other wearable devices in the sense that some of the functionality is the same, such as the ability to receive notifications, but has been designed to be much slimmer as the company felt that smartwatches in general tend to be bulky and have a pretty bad battery life, which is why the smaller form factor should allow for the device to run 7-10 days before requiring a recharge.
