It’s been over a year-and-a-half since the GoPro Hero4 Silver and Black were introduced, and we’re finally getting our first look at the brand new Hero5. It’s still a cute little cube that’ll record you adventures, so what exactly is new this time? Here’s a clear breakdown of the latest action camera in the company’s…
If you’re one of the 17 million people with a grandfathered-in Netflix subscription, take note: Netflix is raising its prices for those plans next month.
SpaceX has been kind enough to release this two-minute supercut of its Falcon 9 rocket launches in the gloriously high-def 4K format. I hope your connection's up to it, because 4K space porn is the best kind of space porn.
Like The Wire, but wish it was NOT filmed in standard definition with a 4:3 ratio? Enjoy streaming things on Amazon? Today is your day and no one can take that away from you, not even David Simon, creator of The Wire, who is decidedly ambivalent about the remastered HD version of The Wire that is now available for…
Netflix announced at CES that it would begin shooting original series in ultra high-def 4K, and now British site HDTVtest has caught the first glimpse of the streaming giant's 4K content in the wild. How much more evil does Kevin Spacey look?
Ever wanted to watch the world—in real-time HD—from space? Well prepare to experience what it'd be life if the world was your very own video game and check out a few planes landing at the Bejiing airport. It'll be the coolest planespotting you've ever done.
Dubai set the world record for the largest fireworks show in history on January 1, 2014. We saw a sample—taken at the Burj Khalifa—but that was nothing compared to this HD video, which shows the full scope of this titanic explosion chain from the air and different locations. The fireworks took over the entire country.
Google Hangout video chats have been quietly upgrading to 720p HD, and the mothership says all users should have high definition soon. The quality boost is part of a long-term upgrade that has Hangout moving toward a system that won't require installing any plugins, but that's still down the road. [Gigaom]
Fuel and oxidizer. Together they make propellant, which can be used to launch a rocket – but for the best results, you need to find the right ratio. Too much of one or the other, and your exhaust velocity begins to drop. Less exhaust velocity means less thrust — and less thrust means you will not go to space today.
The HTC Droid DNA and Motorola's Droid RAZR HD/RAZR MAXX HD are all sweet handsets. The DNA of course has an edge in terms of screen and display while the RAZRs' battery lives are unmatched in the Android ecosystem. Sure the HTC One will be frickin' awesome when it does eventually show up but "later this spring" is…
PPI might not matter much, but LG's new Optimus Pro, which we've seen in Korean form, has a 1080p screen, and it's pretty damn gorgeous.
Staring at this flexcam footage of a man whipping his face-flesh to-and-fro, his lips projected outward in what might be the best impersonation of a lolface ever commited to video, I can't help but recall something evolutionary biologist Christopher Schneider told us in an interview last month — that the most recent…
Fresh on the heels of an iPad mini teardown that revealed $188 worth of components, IHS has pegged the Kindle Fire HD bill of materials at $165. That means that only about 20 bucks' worth of hardware separates devices with $130 price tag differential. Yeesh.
So, the iPad mini is here at last! Smaller tablets have already carved out a real niche for themselves, and if you've always wanted an iPad but were scared off by its size, then maybe this is the day you've been waiting for.
Imagine 80-inch screens with quadruple the image quality of Full HD, plus passive 3D content that you'd consider actually watchable. That's 4K TV technology. It could deliver a stunning home theater experience—just as soon as 4K-enabled TV's like Sony's latest begin to cost less than a Kia.
We've already discussed this. So why are you not looking at Gizmodo in HD? Just hit the HD view icon sitting to the right of the eyeball and magnifying glass on the top right, and you'll be instantly treated to big, crisp, beautiful Gizmodo in HD.
HD is just a better way to view anything, period. So why are you looking at Gizmodo in anything else?
Gizmodo reader Alex W. wrote in with another bugging-out MacBook question, this time concerning iTunes and its (in)ability to play movies downloaded in HD/SD. Hive mind, can we help him?
I always hated video in weddings. The quality always look so cheesy. But not this one. This one was filmed with RED Epic cameras on 5K resolution and 3D! These are the same cameras that Peter Jackson is using for The Hobbit or Ridley Scott used for Prometheus.
