Exoskeletons promise to make us stronger and faster, but most of them remain bulky pieces of kit.Roam Robotics has created a lightweight alternative.There are a number of companies in existence developing cutting-edge exoskeletons that will help us perform feats of strength or endurance beyond what our bodies can otherwise manage.But while a lot of these creations are bulky, expensive, and rely on electromechanical components to work, San Francisco-based Roam Robotics is taking a different approach.Instead, it s focusing on designs that are largely constructed out of plastic and high-strength fabrics, but which nonetheless don t give up too much in terms of power compared to other designs.More: A robotic exoskeleton powered this disabled U.S. athlete to a prize in the Robot Olympics
Self-driving cars aren't going to be affordable to the masses anytime soon but this enterprising college student found a way around that.Anyone who has been to college knows that students are permanently broke, constantly having to sacrifice the finer things in life meals in favor of the bare essentials beer.That is not the case for Brevan Jorgenson, though.His newly autonomous set of wheels is due to his decision to become an early beta tester for Comma Neo, the kit from self-driving car technology developed by former teen hacker George Hotz, now CEO and founder of Comma.ai.More: Self-driving retrofit software now available for free, but it comes with caveats For the beta test stage you just downloaded their beta Android app Chffr, and let it record your driving with a suction phone mount, Jorgenson told Digital Trends.

Microsoft's Hololens - the company's augmented reality headset - officially launched in the UK at the end of last year, two years after it was first unveiled to the public.Selling at £2,719 for the developer kit, it's far from a mainstream product yet though.A retail model has long been expected, a hypothetical 'Hololens 2', and we might now be seeing the first hints of that coming to fruition.A report on Thurrot claims that Microsoft is "side-stepping" a second Hololens model, and focusing on a more advanced third generation of the hardware with a rumoured 2019 release window.Referring to the three generational model of hardware development - working proof of concept, refining to make something smaller and more affordable, then releasing an enhanced final model for consumers - Thurrot cites "several sources" who claim Microsoft is effectively skipping that second step.The middle phase is where the company is now, with the dev kit model available at a relatively low (for industry) cost.
Between the the stunning Samsung Galaxy S7, fantastic Google Pixel phone and affordable wonders like the OnePlus 3 and iPhone SE, there's little doubt that 2016 was a great annum for smartphones.Read on for all the most recent gossip and an idea of what phones to expect at MWC 2017, or scroll down for a closer look at key players like Samsung, HTC, Sony, LG, Nokia, Moto (and Lenovo), Huawei, BlackBerry (and HMD) and many more.Just as unsuprisingly, the rumour mill is churning merrily away as the big event nears and we get set to hit Barcelona to soak up all the latest and greatest developments from the world of mobile later this month.Liike Apple, Google doesn't usually make a big song and dance at MWC, but Android Nougat and Android Wear 2.0 devices will likely feature heavily at MWC.Chinese smartphone maker Huawei was one of the first to confirm its MWC be-in, with new flagship the Huawei P10 expected to be the star of the show.At the other end of the spectrum, those looking for a budget new phone might want to keep tabs on Meizu, whose M5s device is being tipped as a OnePlus 3T rival.
Marantz is responsible for some of the classiest AV receivers on the market (as confirmed by our review of the slimline NR1607) and the SR6011 looks to uphold its fine reputation.A grand might not be your idea of affordable, but when you weigh up the number of features on board – coupled with Marantz’s design prowess, both inside and out – you’ll realise that you’re getting plenty for your money.It’s a subtle touch, but enough to distinguish it from black box rivals.And with four digital audio inputs (two optical, two coaxial), 7.1-channel analogue inputs, 13.2 pre-outs, dual subwoofer outputs plus loads of analogue AV ports, you won’t be stuck for places to shove your cables.And thanks to its 11.2-channel processing, you can hook up an external amplifier to the SR6011’s pre-outs and expand the system to 7.1.4.That’s a little disappointing if you’re spending a grand on a new amp, particularly when you consider how ubiquitous multiroom functionality has become.
The World Justice Project offers a four-pronged functional definition.The government and citizens are accountable under the law.If the damage is not repaired, our tripartite system of Government, civil rights, elections, free press, etc.—will be replaced by a very different social order.Democracy is neither guaranteed nor absolute, and it ceases to exist without the rule of law.They are locked in an expanding, unrelenting assault on the rule of law coming from multiple fronts and in old and new ways.Advances in technology, new legal delivery models, a focus on process, and a surfeit of unemployed and underemployed lawyers provide an opportunity for affordable legal representation for the many millions of Americans in need of it.
Dyson knows you had your eye on a V8 Absolute cordless vacuum but might have blanched at the $599 price, and so now the company is rolling out two more battery-powered models that are a little more affordable.The Dyson V7 Motorhead and Dyson V8 Animal each pack more suction than the vacuum-maker’s old V6 models – up to 150-percent in the case of the V8, in fact – but are both priced under $500.The V8 Animal is the closest to the V8 Absolute flagship, and in fact uses the same V8 motor with 2 Tier Radial cyclones.In fact, the main difference between Animal and Absolute is what accessories you get.Both come with the direct-drive powered brush-head, along with a mini motorized tool, soft dusting brush, and a few crevice tools.However, the V8 Animal lacks the soft roller head that works so well on wood floors isn’t included, though you do get it all for $499.
Since the smart home category exploded onto the tech scene, countless manufacturers have jumped on the bandwagon to the point that we re now spoilt for choice.But which smart home products are worth buying?Which ones are actually useful, affordable, and compatible with the things you use every day?It s also a controversial choice because spending a hundred quid on a wireless camera for your fridge seems a bit ridiculous - but when you compare it with the cost of a proper smart fridge, often in the thousands, it seems much more reasonable.It also claims to be able to recognise food items and expiry dates, sending notifications when you need to finish up the bacon hallelujah .You can turn the alarm off from your phone handy when you ve burnt dinner and don t feel like getting on a chair and if you have several, it ll tell you where the issue is.
After a brief hiatus thanks to a bit of a shuffle in the top-order management 1, 2 , Xiaomi are back to their global expansion plans.After a rather successful 2.5-3 years in India, Xiaomi have now forayed into neighbour country Pakistan.They have done so by introducing the blockbuster Redmi Note 4 along with the affordable Redmi 4A and the high-end Mi Mix.There s no word yet on which version MediaTek/Snapdragon of the Redmi Note 4 will make it to Pakistan.Xiaomi will be working with Daraz in Pakistan as part of a distribution partnership.It ll be interesting to see how it pans out for Xiaomi — and Pakistani buyers — considering that Xiaomi usually indulge in online offerings.Coming weeks and months will tell us more about how well Xiaomi are received in Pakistan.While it may undoubtedly seem like they re a bit late to the party, Xiaomi s track record has shown that they often don t take too long to consolidate their position in new markets.Share this:TweetMorePocketShare on TumblrEmailPrint
It s been more than two years since Microsoft publicly demonstrated its HoloLens mixed reality headset.Since that time, Microsoft has moved the device from the prototype phase into production albeit as a limited developer model that ll set buyers back a cool $3,000.Although Microsoft never laid out an exact launch date for a full-on consumer version, most assumed that a more polished and affordable version of HoloLens would be coming down the pipeline any day now.A recent report from Thurrott.com, however, suggests otherwise.Several sources over the past week told the publication that Microsoft has shuffled its HoloLens roadmap, a move that has apparently resulted in the second iteration of the device being cancelled.That doesn t mean Microsoft is canning the entire project; instead, they re simply skipping over the second revision and going straight to the third iteration.
It s very likely that Nvidia will soon launch the GTX 1080 Ti graphics card, a powerful follow-up to last year s GTX 1080.It s expected to boast even more power to push cutting-edge gaming graphics in native 4K resolution, and while it s likely to be based on the same Pascal GPU architecture as the GTX 1080, it should still be a decent upgrade over the older yet still very powerful GPU.We re assuming that Nvidia continues its pattern of releasing a mainline GPU series along with an incredibly powerful Titan variant one year, then following up with a more powerful Ti variant the next year.So, if you re looking forward to a GPU that s more powerful than the GTX 1080, and more affordable than the Titan X, then read on to find out all the news, rumors and release date information we know so far about the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti.Quite a bit, probably over $600 £500, AU$800 Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti release date
