That doesn’t even account for other threats from fraudsters and identity thieves. Now you can protect yourself while on the go, or at home, thanks to IndiGoGo project InvizBox.
Mobile World Conference 2017 (MWC) was full of awesome new releases and teasers for the latest in mobile tech. Now it is time to look back and try to pick out the best. With so much cool consumer tech coming out, it will be hard to choose.
Samsung Gear VR
Samsung has jumped in bed with Oculus to offer their first ever VR headset, complete with a controller. This is a serious move in the virtual reality world, putting one of the biggest names in mobile innovation directly into the realm of gaming.
Google has released an Android Wear before, and it was met with pretty positive reviews by both Google and wearable fans. Now they are announcing Android Wear 2.0, and they promise it will be the ultimate smartwatch on the market.
Better App Integration
The big news is definitely the app use. In the past incarnation it had a decent interface. But some apps didn’t work well, or they were cumbersome on the less powerful device. Now that has been fixed. You can pick and choose your apps from their watch store, which includes an app to make calls directly from your watch. That’s right, the days of wrist communicators are finally here. Since it is based on a cellular connection you don’t have to have your phone on you to do it, either.
The GoTube reimagines what a scooter is. Portable, light and packed with features, this gadget is great for travelling in a city. The design is minimalist and slick, with the scooter folding up into a tube that’s easy to carry and store.
The Fossil Group has released a new smartwatch under their acquired company Misfit, called the Vapor. This time they have found an interesting balance between the fashion forward look of Misfits tech jewelry, and Fossil’s attention to high performance features.
At CES 2017, Dell has let loose with two exciting and innovative new devices. For the artist, Dell has its new Canvas. For those who need the best graphics possible, Dell’s 8K monitor will blow you away.
Dell’s Canvas isn’t an all-in-one like Microsoft’s Surface Studio. The Canvas was created as an external monitor to allow creatives easier use of digital devices. Like a paper work pad or canvas, the gadget sits on a desk (Or a stand, if you’d prefer).
On day two of CES 2017, Nvidia announced its new SHIELD TV media streamer; Samsung showed off its new gaming notebook the Odyssey, Sony is releasing a 4K Blu-ray to the mass market; LG unveiled it’s Gram 14 laptop, and Asus show how busy they’ve been.
