Scientists at la Universidad Carlos III of Madrid (UC3M) have developed a system based on augmented reality that, thanks to intelligent glasses, enables a professor to see notes or comments on the contents of a lesson. Plus, he or she can see if the students understand explanations or if they are having doubts or difficulties.
As we've previously discussed on TG Daily, Rockchip’s RK3188 quad-core processor is currently one of the fastest ARM Cortex-A9 chips available on the hyper-competitive market.
The Giayee TVB103 is powered by a Rockchip ARM Cortex-A9 processor. Additional key specs include up to 2GB of RAM, 8-32GB of storage and a microSD card slot.
Variscite has debuted what it describes as the smallest system-on-module currently on the market. Dubbed the DART-4460, this device is powered by an ARM Cortex-A9 processor and measures just 52mm x 17mm x 4.7mm, or about 2″ x 0.67″ x 0.18″, making it even smaller than the tiny Gumstix Overo Cortex-A8 system.
The QC802, a quad-core mini PC with 2GB RAM and 8GB Flash, can be snapped up for a cool $62, or $70 with shipping. The device is powered by a Rockchip RK3188 Cortex A9 SoC (1.6 Ghz) paired with an ARM Mali-400MP4 GPU.
BrickPi - which recently surfaced on Kickstarter - is a platform that converts a standard Raspberry Pi into a robot.
AMD has debuted the first commercially available 5 GHz CPU processor, dubbed the FX-9590. These 8-core CPUs are targeted at gamers and high-end users looking to power their rigs with some of the fastest silicon available.
During Apple's long-awaited WWDC 2013 keynote on Monday, Anki showcased a toy-video game hybrid that uses iOS and Cupertino's mobile devices to run a number of small, autonomous cars around a track.
Intel's NUC, or Next Unit of Computing, measures approximately 4″ x 4″ x 1.5″ and is currently powered by a wide range of Ivy Bridge processors.
An international research team has demonstrated a novel method to epitaxially synthesize structurally and compositionally homogeneous and spatially uniform ternary InAsyP1-y nanowire on Si at wafer-scale using metal-organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD).
The Pandora Box is a device designed to transform your TV into an Android-powered PC. With it, you can stream Internet video, surf the web and read emails.
Scanadu Scout had developed a medical tricorder designed to work alongside an iPhone or Android handset.
AMD has broadened its horizons and is looking beyond the myopic world of Windows exclusivity.
The uber-mini Gigabyte Brix measures approximately 4.5″ x 4.2″ x 1.2″, with future versions of the device expected to offer support for either an AMD Kabini SoC or Intel Haswell chip (Core i3 - Core i7), along with 16GB of RAM and an mSATA SSD.
The retail versions of Intel's Haswell chip reportedly run hotter and sip more power than pre-production silicon. In addition, the processors cannot (allegedly) be overclocked to the same speeds, while retail chips are "around 15°C" hotter than pre-production samples.
Intel has officially confirmed its next-gen Thunderbolt protocol will double the throughput of its predecessor, all while remaining fully backward compatible.
The Android-powered MK805 II or MINI XPlus H34 carries a sweet $60 price tag. Key hardware specs include an AllWinner A20 dual core SoC (1.2GHz), Mali-400 MP2 GPU, 1GB RAM, 4GB Flash and Android 4.2.2. (Jelly Bean).
Kingnovel's $96 Android mini-PC is powered by Rockchip's RK3188 1.6 GHz quad-core processor, which is paired with ARM's Mali-400 MP4 GPU.
A physical particle postulated nearly 80 years ago could help provide a decisive step toward the realization of novel, highly efficient data storage devices.
Once upon a time, a $200 price point was thought to be the sweet spot for tablets. But then Hewlett Packard raised the proverbial bar with its $99 WebOS tablet fire sale.
