Apple's known for their high quality products and services. Although some bad apples tend to slip through the cracks. These are Apple's worst rated products on their online store.
Apple's next world famous event is expected to be March 21st; where were going to see new iPhone handsets and a replacement to the iPad Air 3. The event was rumored to be on the 15th of March but that means Apple is late to announce. As they usually give us a notice weeks in advance.
This scanner grants you access to something but not the all awaited for door.
Myris is a palm-sized device that scans the eye. This will allow you to replace your passwords with the most secure password of all, the iris. There is a 1 in 2 trillion chance that someone will be able to replicate your password. It will not fall for photos or videos of the iris meaning it truly is one of the most secure forms of a password.
It is not the eye scanning door that we see in the movies but the company, EyeLock, is not far off. They have several items listed on their site that pertain to the purpose of door security but they don't seem to be putting them on the market at the moment. This proves that it is possible and it will be done but most likely for a premium price.
Myris can be found at places like Staples and BestBuy for a price of $279.99. This means that their later products are likely going to be more expensive than this price tag because they seem to be much more complex than Myris. Only the future will tell us when we can be expecting such a great step in technology.
Snapchat, the ghost iconed app, may be very popular among teenagers. But in investors eyes, it is very serious valuation.
The company is standing tall with a raising venture capital that could value the company at $19 billion, according to New York Times. If the company is able to raise capital at that price, it will top the charts as one the highest-valued private company in the tech industry.
Only a few privately held companies are valued at end go billions go dollars today. Uber, the hailing start up, recently raised a breaking financing value at $40 billion. The Xiaomi Cooperation, a Chinese smartphones manufacture, is valued at $45 billion.
Snapchat is soon projected to be on the same level as WhatsApp, the mobile messaging start-up acquired by Facebook for a shy $22 billion last year.
Now your probably wondering, "How Snapchat makes their money?" Well recently the company made the first big step in higher revenue streams. With "Discover" on Snapchat companies like CNN, ESPN and Comedy Central can set up little snippets of what is trending. Based the Snapchat's revenue, these companies pay a lot to be on there
A lot of us miss the old days where we could get a picture instantly printed after taking it but luckily it's back.
Prynt will print any picture you take with your smartphone. What's cool about it, is that easier the ink is already within the paper.
The creators goal was to create something easy to use. They didn't want to use bluetooth or Wi-Fi so all that is required is you plugging the phone into the device. It will fit with most normally sized iPhones and Galaxy phones.
What makes this even more modern is the ability to use the device with video. All you have to do is record video with Prynt and print off that picture. When you view the picture through your smartphone you will be able to view the video through the power of augmented reality.
With the initial goal of raising $50,000 they have easily surpassed this with a total of $1,369,180 raised. The modern Polaroid is here. Welcome to the future.
This may just be the first public self driving car for the average consumer. Volvo publicly stated that they will have self driving cars on the road sometime in 2017. This came to no surprise with their recent test division called "Drive Me," which is a beta pilot testing program.
The firm says that it plans to get over 100 self driving cars on the road in 2017. Which means for us, these cars aren't going to be cheap. This plan will not only help Volvo in this space, but also help them achieve "Vision 2020", which is the automakers plan to have zero deaths or serious injuries in their cars by year 2020.
We are entering uncharted territory in the field of autonomous driving,” Volvo senior vice president of research and development Dr. Peter Mertens explained. “Taking the exciting step to a public pilot, with the ambition to enable ordinary people to sit behind the wheel in normal traffic on public roads, has never been done before.” Mertens explains that they are close to achieving a feature set that allows you to drive completely or have the car drive by command.
Volvo understands that they will be times when a driver must be in control of the vehicle. For example, bad weather or technical problems with the car. At that point the car will need to alert the driver to take over full controls. The car must also detect that the diver is safe to drive and if not, the car will need to “bring itself to a safe place to stop.”
The pilot program will take place on “selected roads” in Volvo’s hometown of Gothenburg, Sweden. Volvo said they will everything it takes to “ensure a crash-free future.”
No longer do you need a clunky and heavy projector. Now wherever a light is a projector can be.
Beam can screw into any light socket or can be powered by the included cable. It works with both Apple and Android smartphones, allowing you to watch TV, play games, project recipes, listen to music, project board-games, and of course show a presentation. While it does work with Apple, Beam runs Android, meaning you can use any app available in the Google Play Store.
The really cool feature about this product is that you can make rules for it to obey such as IF it's 7:00 P.M. THEN play my favorite song. This allows it to be much more than a projector, making it almost like a companion device that will ease your way of living. Their is a bunch of rules that you can customize and the company requests that you send them more suggestions on rules to add.
The Beam is a very cool device that was widely popular on Kickstarter. It will not come cheap however. The package on Kickstarter required that you pledge $399 for the product and the company states that it is "for a lot less than the expected retail price". This is a very cool device but is this projector really worth it when compared to all of the other projectors on the market?
A door lock is something you use everyday. Why not make the process of entering and exiting your house easier and cooler?
Sesame fits over any door lock and allows you to unlock your door with the press of a button from your smartphone. Not only does it just unlock from your smartphone but you can use a special assigned knock to gain access as well. You can also (if you are a trusting person) let your friends have access to unlocking your door to ease the burden of letting them in or making them wait for you to open the door.
Sesame is currently a project on Kickstarter and is already funded $100,000 more dollars than their initial goal of $100,000. With 58 days to go, there is still plenty of time for you to fund and help them add more features to their product such as face and voice recognition.
What has just seemed like concept ideas all over google images is now coming to life.
The Blu wearable smartphone uses Flexible Organic Light Emitting Display technology to allow the smartphone to wrap around your wrist. The clasp is allowed to overlap, fitting users of 5.5 inches to 8.5 inches in circumference wrist size. The phone will be running an android operating system and will feature a customizable light bar on the side that you can change the color of to your liking.
The light bar will be used to alert you of incoming notifications. It also has speakers built in to give you 360 degrees of sound and is completely waterproof. A very unique feature of this product is that it has Gesture Orientation User Interface or GO UI, meaning where ever you look the content will move to meet your eye sight.
Battery charging and file transfer will also be completely wireless, meaning you must have wireless Bluetooth headphones to use with this phone.
The Blue Wearable Smartphone is expected to ship this December but still needs your help with only $31,532 AUD raised out of their $600,000 AUD goal.
