The concept behind this incredibly unique smartphone is to finally develop a phone that users will hold onto and have EXTREMELY customizable features.

 

Your first smartphone that’s built by you, for you.

What makes this phone different from any other phone on the market, is the ability to purchase modules for their phone and upgrade it on the fly and how they see fit. Though the prototype is still currently in development, major companies such as GOOGLE are making sure they are a part of this revolutionary hand held device.

ONE DAY ONLY: Google Glass Available to Public – April 15th

No, you didn’t read it wrong. For one day only, Google will be making Google Glass available to the general public. If you’re not familiar with Google Glass, you will be soon. Glass is Google’s wearable active computer accessory based around world exploration with a mounted visual display that sits just above the user’s eye. The point of Glass is to allow the user to be able to engage with the device in a smartphone like format, but completely hands free. Instead of using their hands to interact with the device, users will now be interacting via voice commands and head movement. A simple head tilt of around 30° will be your unique movement signature to activate the display allowing for the consumer to have full access to all of the apps and features that they have linked with their phone and the Glass device.  We could spend all day going over the endless possibilities of Glass, but we figure you’d probably rather watch a cool video on it so we found one for you just down below. After watching the video a lot of you might find yourself interested in the April 15th LIMITED TIME release date and how much this sweet device is going to run you. Well for a cool $1500, you can be walking the streets like a true android in no time. Click HERE to go sign up for Glass today!

New Technology Might Put a Stop to the Power Cord

A New company that goes by the name WiTricity has recently developed and has been testing a new technology that will allow customers to to charge devices up to 7 feet away when paired with a receiver. They have been testing the product for a while and are already able to charge common consumer products such as smartphones and televisions. The case that they have created for smart phones has the ability to transfer power at a rate that is twice the rate of the usual 5-watt smartphone chargers, and 7 feet would make that old cable of yours that barely reaches your bed a thing of the past. Check out this TED Talk to see it in action and a brief explanation of how it works. Let us know what you think!
