    This Vision Of The Future Includes Eyeball-Embedded AR, Hackable Humans, And Gamified Everything

    It’s impossible to predict the future, but the idea that our technology will soon collide with our biological sense of vision continues to pop up in the world. Minority Report is the best fictional example, while Google Glass is obviously the closest real-world iteration of this type of collision to date. But a new video (below) posted by Sight Systems takes a stab at how this marriage… Read More

    MB&F HM2 Final Edition Watches

    The MB&F Horological Machine Number 2 has enjoyed a really rich life. The ‘wrist rectangle’ is now going into its final limited edition production with two new models.

    News flash: You had better have decent eyesight if you want to fully appreciate HDTV

    The Daily Mail (now home to the best sports columnist writing in the English language, Martin Samuel) has a healthy reminder for those of you about to take the plunge into high-definition: be sure to have your vision checked. Vision Express, an optometry chain in the UK, found that 60 percent of Britons haven’t had an eye exam in the past two years—breaking that number down a bit… Read More

    Review: Logitech QuickCam Vision Pro

    Quick Version: The QuickCam Vision Pro from Logitech is perhaps the easiest-to-use webcam I have seen in a while. There is no software required to run it, so you simply plug it in via the 6-ft USB cable, and you’re good to go. It works automatically with MSN Messenger, Yahoo, Skype, and other applications.

    The Sega Vision is not what you think it is

    Our skepticism regarding the Sega Vision was well-placed. While the device is real insofar as you can buy it, it’s not Sega’s re-entry into video game hardware. The company told Unofficial RPG Site that the Vision is “primarily an MP4 video player with some basic games functionality, and not a new handheld gaming machine.” Furthermore, the device isn’t manufactured… Read More

  • Creative Zen Vision:M Now $249

    Creative’s iPod competitor, the 30GB hard drive-based Zen Vision:M is now $249, down from $299. Wait, wasn’t another 30GB player also lowered from $299 to $249 recently? The ePod? iPard? We forget the name. In any case, this player is pretty decent for the people who want an alternative to the most popular MP3 player out there. You can even save another $15 when you buy it on… Read More

  • Creative Zen Vision W Reviewed, Gets Editor's Choice

    , no doubt thanks to all their contacts in the Asian manufacturing community. So why did this player get the editor’s choice? Because the 4.3-inch screen is so large and pretty, it makes the player unable to be held by just one hand. Other good stuff: the GUI, a CompactFlash slot to dump your photos into, WMV/MPEG1/MPEG2/MPEG4/MJPEG/DivX/XviD support, radio and voice recording, TV out… Read More
