Many adventure types who like to record their stunts turn to GoPro, a name that's become synonymous with action videos. However, there's rising competition in the field. Count Polaroid among the ones looking to take market share away from GoPro, which it plans to do with its Cube+, a next generation lifestyle action camera that was first introduced at CE Week last month. The Cube+ retains the original Cube's 35mm cube-shaped form factor. Also like the original, the Cube+ comes in "fun colors" with optional accessories. One thing that's unique about the Cube and Cube+ is that presence of an integrated... Read more...
3D printing continues to edge ever closer to the mainstream, and on the heels of 3D Systems’ announcement that Office Depot will carry its Cube and CubeX 3D printers (for $1,299 and $2,499 respectively), the company has released software that should make designing and printing 3D products much easier for the average user. Cubify Sculpt software is a virtual clay sculpting tool based on 3D Systems’ volumetric CAD engine that allows users to create freeform shapes and intuitively create designs that are ready to print on a 3D printer. Features include embossing with textures, adding colors... Read more...
Once in a while there's a sort of early confluence in technology, where the writing is on the wall for all to see and the opportunity so obvious that the big guns turn their sites to it. Back in the heyday of 3D graphics there were more manufacturers clamoring over each other in the space than you could shake a dynamically-lit, bump-mapped stick at.  From chip suppliers to board partners and software developers, the market was teaming with growth and opportunity.  We're about to turn the corner on the birth of a burgeoning new market and eventually everybody will want in on the action....

3D printing is a fascinating new technology and an exploding new market. The process involved is pretty basic actually. Heat up some plastic, and sort of like that Play-Doh Fun Factory you were so fond of as a kid, you extrude the melted plastic out to create objects of magnificence -- because you built it yourself... It all started back in 2007 when the first RepRap machine was built.  The idea behind RepRap was to design a machine that could build complex parts in three dimensions using extruded molten plastic and that machine could also "self-replicate" or build a copy of itself. Since... Read more...

Hey folks, it's pretty late but the news just doesn't stop :) It's not exactly computer hardware, but Nintendo has revealed their design for Revolution's controller. At first I was a little disappointed, but after thinking about how it could change the way games are played, I'm actually excited about it. There are only so many different genres you can invent, only so many different story lines you can write... really, there are only so many ideas. However, changing the way a game is played is something that hasn't really been attempted before, certainly not on this scale. It could be the next big... Read more...
