Imagine being able to touch virtual reality without the use of an MIDI controller. Sounds very 2030, doesn’t it? Introduced as the world’s first bio-creative instrument, XTH Sense captures body signals and uses them to interact with virtual reality apps, games, connected devices, or musical software. The instrument, which has been in development for the last five years, works as a wireless wearable device for bio-creative interactions, thanks to coded algorithms. Accompanying this is a sophisticated software suite, which tracks mu...
We’ve already seen a glimpse of the future of artificial intelligence in self-driving cars. Now imagine that for some damaged property-related matter you are exchanging emails with AI representing an insurance company. That’s the coup d'œil of applying deep-learning to solve a range of business problems. Palo Alto, Calif. based startup called MetaMind promises to help enterprises use deep-learning for image, text, and data analysis tasks. This approach will enable computers to recognize faces in an image or the text of the speech wit...
Elio Motors is a Phoenix-based manufacturer of an aerodynamic, three-wheel car has topped $1 billion market valuation, two days after becoming the first equity-crowdfunded company to list its shares on the public markets. This makes Elio the first small company to list shares on an exchange, following a mini-IPO made possible by the new Securities and Exchange Commission rules. The Startup Business Act or JOBS Act, which was signed into law by President Obama on April 5, 2012, in support of entrepreneurship and small business growt...
Kickstarter, let’s face it, is a brilliant proposition. Someone talented, creative comes forward with a lovely idea that’s both interesting and innovative enough to jumpstart to something big. Tech aficionados love the idea of Kickstarter as the perfect place for setting up innovative hardware projects. But, what if you want to drink from the glass of success slowly and steadily? What if you want to try your product among a group of people who get your item or idea? As the DIY-maker insurgency continues to ride on full-speed, with the...
Japanese technology and robotics company Cyberdyne Inc. has collaborated with Tokyo’s Haneda Airport to introduce the next-generation robots into its passenger terminals, with an exoskeleton to help airport workers carry heavy loads. Cyberdyne is led by Prof. Yoshiyuki Sankai from Japan's University of Tsukuba, widely known for his powered exoskeleton suit HAL and his research on uses of cyborg innovations in the medical arena. Hybrid Assistive Limb (HAL)is a device that can easily slip over a person’s limb, enhancing their strengt...
Here comes the revolutionary new generation PC, the all new Remix Mini, world’s first ever Android PC. This Android PC costs merely $20, which is even less than your dinner bill for two!

Fellas, Remix Mini is trending high because of its remarkable features, stylish, affordable and small. “We know you were probably thinking about buying 2 Chipotle burritos with a Patron Margarita with 20 bucks,” writes Jide Tech in its Kickstarter page. “Bu...
Bionics is a brilliant synthesis of poles apart branches of science that explores the interplay between electronics, human psychology and robotics. Intrinsically, it is one of the latest branches of science. Modern editions of popular dictionaries explain the word ‘bionic’ as a fictional character with artificial body parts; beings that are capable of doing things that average humans cannot do. The science of bionics has been around since the 1990s and has evolved exceptionally over the last decade. Bionics is said to be a futurist...
The unfair jokes around women and their parking skills may cease to exist or at least we’re hoping they do, thanks to BMW. The German automotive company plans to showcase its sensor-filled BMW i3 v2 at the CEs 2015 in January and will demo its driverless parking system that can be operated through a smartwatch known as the Remote Valet Parking Assistant. According to a BMW spokesperson, the BMW i3 can navigate through multi-level parking garages using information from its laser scanners with the help of a digital site plan of the g...
Ever since DIY robotics went mainstream, we come across geeky booze aficionados who build robotic bartenders to help them fix the perfect cocktail drinks. We’ve seen a dozen such cases previously, ranging from uncontrollably expound bots that fill an entire room, to tiny ones that pleasantly fit on your countertop and with each passing month, it looks like it’s going to be more than a growing fad. The most recent addition to the big family of robotic bartenders is Somadar. A lot of times, news of such booze-dispensing bots isn’t note...
