    This MIT device can tell if you’re happy, sad or angry using wireless signals

    SanDisk’s 1TB SD card has more storage than my computer

    Higher resolution is making for larger video and images, but luckily, flash memory capacity seems to be keeping pace. A new SDXC card from SanDisk unveiled today has 1TB of space available, which basically means you can put it in a camera and essentially forget it even has a storage cap at all. The new 1TB capacity is just a prototype for now, meaning there’s not pricing or availability… Read More

    Canary’s new security camera cuts the cord to tackle the great outdoors

    I’m a bit surprised Canary didn’t just go ahead and make the Flex its flagship. For starters, the camera is just a heck of a lot nicer looking than its predecessor, a white (or black) pill-shaped product with a glossy black frot and a glowing power ring on the bottom that brings nothing more to mind than HAL-9000, that ultimate bastion of home security.
