Aria – The Clip On that adds Gesture Control to Android Wear Smart Watches

Aria – The Clip On that adds Gesture Control to Android Wear Smart Watches

We have all seen a lot of movies where hi-tech machines are run using  finger gestures. Now thanks to a kick starter project call Aria u can almost achieve that feat. Aria is basically a clip on for Android Wear and Pebble smart watches which lets users use various finger gestures to do different tasks. It is an accessory which will set your hands free to achieve various tasks on your smart watch which would normally need a swipe or tap. The companion app is used to set the various gestures that include tapping, flicking your fingers, and closing and opening your hand. Aria clips on the inside of the smart watch band making it almost unseen by the human eye when the smart watch is worn. The one made for Pebble smart watches connects via Bluetooth Low Energy, so it does not have any battery of its own. The Android Wear one on the other hand, has its own battery. The Android Wear clip on will cost you around $169 because it is built specially for developers. The Pebble version is much cheaper, $100 cheaper to be precise, for around $69. Currently this will not support Apple Watches, but you can connect it to your Apple Watch and use it to control some apps on your iPhone or iPad.   Source:...

Lenovo brings us the world’s first “Selfie” Flash for smartphones

Lenovo brings us the world’s first “Selfie” Flash for smartphones

With the love for selfies growing exponentially, it seems fiting for OEM’s to shift their focus from not only innovative smartphone hardware but to certain accessories that are truly heading in the right direction as far as shaping up the future is concerned. Every smartphone today has amazing cameras catered together with powerful LED flash but the one major worry (though it wouldn’t be the end of the world even if it wasn’t but anyway) is the fact that most smartphones today even though come with high resolution front facing “selfie” cameras, the one major thing missing from their repertoire is the option to take those perfect night time selfies under extremely low lit conditions. Thanks to Lenovo, those days are soon to be long forgotten with the launch of the world’s first Lenovo Vibe Xtension Selfie Flash at the recently concluded CES 2015 in Las Vegas. The Lenovo Selfie Flash features 8 LEDs in a small ring that connects to your smartphone via the 3.5mm headphone jack. Plug it in, launch your camera app and you’re good to go. The 8 LEDs are powerful enough to illuminate your selfies even in a pitch dark room. The device works natively with the Lenovo camera app but even if you don’t own a Lenovo smartphone, you can still easily use the device on any smartphone having a 3.5mm headphone jack. The LED’s can be switched on manually by pressing a small button at the back of the device which also enables to you to use it as a camera button to snap those perfect selfies. According to Lenovo, the Selfie Flash can take upto a 100 selfies on a full charged battery and can be either used for taking selfies or for enhancing the quality of pictures taken with the rear camera if the device is turned the other way around. As for now the Lenovo Selfie Flash would be made available only in Europe and Asia by April for $29. For those of you residing in North America and other regions can still order the device from Lenovo’s website starting this April. As always, this year’s CES was also full of surprises and we’ve got plenty more of exciting goodies for you guys so do stick around. Cheers...

The smart watch in particular is what we going to talk about today.  The new member of the Gear family is called the Gear S. What sets this smart watch apart from the rest is that it is a “standalone” smart watch, meaning it can house a sim card and use data to work its wonders. It does not need to be paired with a smart phone via Bluetooth or WiFi, though you have the option to do that too. The Gear S is a curved smart watch, which fits comfortably on your wrist. The display on the watch is a 2 inch AMOLED screen with a resolution of 360×480 pixels (300PPI). The front face of the watch houses a home button, similar to those found in other Gear watches. The OS running the Gear S is Samsung’s very own Tizen software, which has been improved quite a bit compared to its predecessors. Now as this particular smart watch has a sim card, you will surely be getting many texts, so the watch has its very own little keyboard, which you can use to reply back, Autocorrect really helps when typing. If, you find it hard to type on such a small screen then no worries, you can always use the Speech-to-text feature to reply back to your text messages. Now using the device is not all that hard either, when you swipe left from the clock face screen, a notification center appears where all the notifications of your various apps can be found. Now, if you swipe to the right a home screen comes up where it shows your recently used apps. Finally when you swipe up your app drawer open us, where you can use the numerous apps available at your disposal to really bring out the full potential of the smart watch. On the hard ware front, it has the industry par 512MB RAM and 4GB internal memory. At the heart of the device lies a 1 GHz Dual-core processor and is powered by a 300mAh battery which lasts for 2 days on a single charge.

The watch will be available for around 399 Euros...
