Mobile Eyeball Unlocking Prototyped
Intent on making our next generation of mobile and other electronic devices and services more secure and conveniently accessible, Fujitsu has successfully integrated an iris-scanning infrared camera and LED system into a prototype smartphone.
Thanko released a palm-sized full HD drive recorder for ¥2,980 (~$23.00).
It is a small device with a 1.5-inch LCD display so it is hardly noticeable in your front windshield view. It's able to shoot 1080p full-HD video with a 120-degree wide angle lens, and also the built-in 12 IR lights allow you to record clear video even during evening hours.
Sony debuted a round-shaped, voice command-controlled Bluetooth speaker (BSP60) at the ongoing Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain.
The BSP60 answers your verbal questions. By pairing up with a smartphone that has the dedicated application installed, when you ask the device about your schedule, updates on SNS, weather, etc., it tells you the information that you need.
