Watch HTC Vive's wireless VR adapter and object tracker in action

I tried out TPCast's Vive wireless adapter, which will be available globally in the second quarter of this year for $249, and came away mostly impressed. It's a small device that attaches to the top of the Vive's headset and completely replaces the need for the Vive's clunky umbilical cord. While you can use the TPCast's adapter completely wirelessly for about an hour and a half, I tested it with a large battery pack that had to sit in my back pocket. And yes, that meant I had a cable once again, but it still provided more freedom than the typical Vive setup.

Each "level" is set in the world of the show in question, so you'll jump through the jungles of Columbia with Pablo Escobar and hurdle prison guards as Piper Chapman. The Hawkins National Laboratory also makes an appearance, complete with a low-res version of the Stranger Things theme tune (the same can be said for all shows).

Hackers successfully add games to the NES Classic Edition

So far a limited number of games have been checked with the device, and there’s no guarantee that any particular one will work — the emulator software built into the NES Classic Edition wouldn’t have been tested with, for instance, Blaster Master, since it wasn’t one of the games intended for inclusion. It might work, it might not.

The best PCs, gadgets, and wearables of CES 2017

What happens at CES, ends up in a video montage.Jennifer Hahn LAS VEGAS—The annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas tries to get consumers (and the media) excited for the new year with a treasure trove of new devices. Most of the big names in computing, gaming, fitness tech, smart home, and more show off some of their newest products that will come out later in the year. And until they hit shelves (if they hit the shelves), CES is the only way to get a glimpse of them.

Smart Vegas, Baby! Las Vegas and Ingenu kick off smart innovation district

It’s fair to say that Las Vegas is not intent on offering highly experimental, high-risk smart city strategies. “We want solutions to roll out quickly rather than wait for a three-year roll out,” Sherwood says. Thus, their focus is on familiar concepts like smart traffic, public safety, public services and tourist amenities, public transportation and preparation for autonomous transport. There’s a refreshing lack of ego in that they’ve made thoughtful consideration of cities before them and forged relationships with the Smart cities of Glasgow, Austin, and San Jose.

10 ways the iPhone changed everything

The iPhone reinvented the idea of mobile gaming. Apps like Angry Birds, that anyone could play using their fingers on the touchscreen, became hugely popular, and payment models changed. Many games are now free to play -- instead of charging a sales price, developers came up with the idea of in-app purchases, which let you pay for new levels and features as you go.

Nissan Says Self-Driving Cars Are Impossible. Its Solution? Customer Call Centers

Now, Nissan’s cubicle-based drivers aren’t emergency backups. If the car hits black ice, it’s in charge of staying on the road. There’s no feasible way to get the human into the loop in time to act. But they can help out when the car encounters conditions it’s unsure how to handle. If a Nissan happened upon the construction scene from Sierhuis’ photo, it would stop and ping its control center. A human operator would look around using the car’s cameras and other sensors and issue new instructions—direct control would pose latency issues. Like: When it’s safe, cross the double yellow and get back to the right side after 20 yards. Or a new instruction set could ensure packages and disabled passengers get dropped off in exactly the right spot, and help assess potentially dangerous situations on the road. But most of all, the teleoperator is there to make sure the car’s doesn’t just shut down when it’s too dumb to know what’s going on. Nissan’s system is a modified version of the software that helped engineers move the Spirit and Opportunity rovers around Mars.

Audio-Technica reinvents the wireless headphone with new DSR9BT

Audio-Technica is one of the most respected headphone manufacturers in the world, and this year it’s arriving at CES with something quite unique: a wireless headphone that doesn’t require a built-in DAC. Digital-to-analog converters are a standard part of any digital playback system; you’ll find them either inside your source device, like a smartphone, or inside the headphones themselves, as with every set of Bluetooth cans to date. But Audio-Technica’s new DSR9BT and DSR7BT have a so-called Pure Digital Drive system that means the headphones’ speakers can respond directly to a digital signal without the need for conversion. So it’s goodbye to the DAC, and hello to a simpler, more streamlined design.

What science says about naming

It turns out that the papers referenced above are just the tip of iceberg among computer science literature on naming. We read (or skimmed) a number of related papers that take different perspectives and approaches on the naming problem. Together, these papers paint an encouraging picture of the potential for better practical techniques that will help programmers to get better at naming, and avoid bad naming. At the same time, these papers point to numerous opportunities for better tool support for good naming, which is notably absent from mainstream software development environments.

I rocked out in Rock Band VR at CES and I liked it

VR is a tricky medium to do well, but Harmonix’s upcoming Rock Band VR might just be the perfect fit. The game has always been about making players feel like they’re real rock stars, living in an alternate reality where they chased their dream and actually did master the guitar and make it big. Virtual reality finally gives Rock Band players the chance to feel real stage presence, and Rock Band VR takes advantage of that while still delivering a solid game that’s fun to play, too.

5 New iPhone 8 Features We Know so far

The problem here is that while Apple wants to use OLED displays  on all variants of the iPhone it launches next year, the company might not be able to do so due to supply constraints. Since OLED display manufacturing is relatively new and tough, there are not many suppliers around for it. As things stand right now, Samsung remains the largest OLED display manufacturer, with the company supplying panels to almost every other Android OEM out there. Considering the volume that Apple demands, it is not possible for Samsung alone to fulfil the company’s OLED demand. Additionally, Apple prefers to keep its supply-chain diverse with multiple suppliers so as to avoid any supply constraints. While the company has been looking for OLED suppliers, it has not met with much success as other display makers like LG, Sharp, and JDI are still struggling with poor yield issues in their OLED factories.

GeniCan scans your trash to make grocery lists and arrange delivery

Simply scan an item before tossing it into the trash and GeniCan automagically adds it to an accompanying smartphone app. If the item doesn’t have a barcode, or it’s unreadable, you’ll just hold the item in front of the scanner and wait for the prompt. Once GeniCan asks what you’re throwing away, simply tell it, and it’ll add that to the list as well.

Mixed Reality will be most important tech of 2017

As you can see, VR is pretty amazing because its allows users to do so many things like watch a 3D experience of Cirque du Soleil, attend an exclusive concert or sporting event, ride in a roller coaster, play games, create art projects – and in some cases – hang out with friends in virtual worlds. (Conan did a poor job making friends in his virtual world in the example above by the way.) Recently, Virtual Reality has even been used to help sick children escape their hospital environments and bring them to happier surroundings. So the question you might be asking is, what does this have to do with Mixed Reality? The answer: VR is a gateway for a lot of the more advanced technology that will be used in Mixed Reality.

The XBox is an X-Men Inspired Puzzle That Will Melt Your Mind

First thing FLEB has to do is crack the cryptograms on the faces of the box. He doesn’t go through that process but points the curious to this page . Once he’s figured that out he gets a phrase on the top that informs him that he needs “to harness the power of five individuals to enter the word ‘forceful’ into the box.” The other sides have the names of five different X-Men printed on them and you have to use their powers on the box. Scott Summers is Cylops. So the side of the box that says “Scott Summers” requires his superhero power which is laser vision. There’s a small hole in the box. When you aim a laser pointer into the hole, the letter “H” appears on the box’s numeric display. Applying ice to the Iceman side brings up the letter “P.” The other X-Men are Magneto, Jean Grey and Surge. Can you guess what techniques would be used to apply their superpowers? Probably not.

After a few weeks back in the UK, he's recently returned to Japan, heading up our coverage of a country that's obsessed with technology -- often in very unusual ways.

Here is Faraday Future’s first production car, the FF 91

According to Faraday Future, the car is able to hit 60 mph in 2.39 seconds — which, if accurate, would narrowly beat out the 2.4 seconds it takes a Tesla Model S to hit 60 mph. It showed a video of the car beating the Model S in a race, and while the company had each car hit full acceleration on stage, they did not go head-to-head. So we’ll basically have to go by the video for now, until we actually see the cars in person race each other in an independent setting.

For 2017, CES' early connected home highlights are about appliances making some truly smart integrations with Amazon's Alexa, Nest's Protect, and, of course, iOS and Android as well.

48 Best of CES 2017: This Year’s Most Interesting Gadgets

The hardest part of CES this year? Selecting a single stunning TV as our top pick. Whether you opt for LG’s comely OLEDs, Samsung’s ravishing QLEDs, or this divine Sony set, you’re in for a visual treat. The tiebreaker is Sony’s innovative spin on audio with its very first OLED TV. The Bravia A1E uses its panel to deliver stereo sound, as four surface transducers on the back of the screen vibrate to emit audio. Dialogue sounds like it’s coming directly from onscreen mouths, and audio pans from side to side. The set’s exquisite design, which includes an A-frame stand around the back that houses a woofer for the low end and all the I/O ports you need, certainly makes it unique.
