Android Wear watches are cool and all, but none of them are especially fancy. (Even the new Moto 360, with its flat tire screen.) Until now, at least. An alligator leather wristband, 23-karat gold plating, and a $1000-plus price tag mean the LG Watch Urbane Luxe is a particularly niche geek accessory.
The Philips AmbiLux UHD grabs your eyeballs by the...er...balls and puts them through some sort of kaleidoscopic interdimensional warp hole.
You’ve got to hand it to Huawei. Just a week out from Apple’s iPhone 6S launch, it’s revealed the Mate S, which has almost certainly stolen a bit of the Apple phone’s thunder by including its iOS rival’s expected lead feature.
In the middle of the throng at LG’s IFA 2015 booth, one little gadget got a surprisingly large amount of tech geek attention. The compact, portable and aptly named LG Rolly Keyboard is a super-convenient contrivance for tablet and smartphone typists.
Sony’s smaller version of the Xperia Z3, the Xperia Z3 Compact, was a fantastic phone. It was the first time we saw a major manufacturer pack all the high-end goodness of a flagship phone into a smaller form package, and we liked what we saw.
If the Philips AmbiLux TV stole my heart with its audacious projected immersive lighting tech, the batshit-crazy ASUS ROG GX700 water-cooled gaming laptop has had the same effect for me but in a laptop. This thing is an absolute beast.
Samsung has always, for the most part, marched to the beat of its own drum when it comes to smartwatches, making wearables with cameras, LTE, and weird rotating bezels—all powered by its own OS, called Tizen. Although that first-party software allows Samsung to get creative with its wristputers, it also comes with…
They’re more eco-friendly than top-loading machines, but front-loading washers don’t let you add forgotten garments once the wash cycle has started. With the addition of a second smaller door, though, Samsung’s new WW8500 AddWash lets you toss in that missing sock you just found.
Sleep tracking gadgets and apps can be invaluable, health-boosting tools. The trouble is that you need to remember to use them, which often involves wearing a wristable to bed. Samsung’s new Sleepsense tracker helps fix this problem by hiding the tracker under your mattress.
TomTom’s first running watch was a great first step two years ago. Last year it got even better, with an integrated heart rate monitor. For this year’s watches, TomTom is adding full activity tracker capabilities and the ability to stream music to Bluetooth headphones, all for a pretty reasonable price.
Today, Panasonic tentatively waded into the world of 4K OLED TVs with a new 65-inch set, following the successes of LG and Samsung with the relatively new display technology.
At its IFA presser this morning, Asus claimed that its new RT-AC5300 router provides the world’s fastest wi-fi. That’s a bold claim, but at the very least, this thing looks like serious business. It looks like a crazy death spike or a science fiction space habitat.
We got an early peek at the Asus ZenWatch 2 earlier this summer, but today, we’re getting the full specs. Wow, can you actually get good Android Wear without spending a fortune?
The new Lenovo Miix 700 is pretty much a straight-up clone of the Microsoft’s Surface Pro 3. Same size, same weight, same idea. I don’t care. The Surface was pretty great—minus a bunch of annoying flaws—and I can’t wait for someone to perfect it.
Toshiba is not a company normally known for pushing the bounds of laptop innovation and design. But change is afoot — first, with a surprisingly good full HD Chromebook, then a cheap-and-quite-cheerful Windows convertible, and now a fantastically bonkers 12.5-inch convertible laptop with a 4K Ultra HD display.
Polaroid proper is no more, but its brand-name and identity are still around in various reanimated forms—and today at IFA in Berlin, the company that owns those assets is releasing a new rendition of the old Polaroid’s classic instant camera.
