Panasonic Toughpad FZ-M1 review: hands-on

Friday, January 10th, 2014

DSC05948

Panasonic’s Toughpad FZ-G1 won our heart back in 2013, and now it has a little brother to keep it company – the 7in FZ-M1. Cut from the same ultra-tough, ruggedised cloth as its 10.1in stablemate, the FZ-M1 delivers Core i5 processing power, Windows 8.1 and a range of accessories that allow it to adapt to almost any situation.

Samsung Galaxy Camera 2 review: first look

Friday, January 10th, 2014

intro shot

Samsung announced an update to its ground-breaking Galaxy Camera at CES 2014, and we were lucky enough to give an early sample an in-depth test while in Las Vegas. The final version will go on sale in February, with a suggested retail price of £399 inc VAT.

The original Galaxy Camera gained a PC Pro Recommended award, combining as it did the best parts of a camera and phone – a compact camera with built-in 3G, a full-sized screen and Google Android to power it, not to mention a phenomenal 21x optical zoom.

3D Systems ChefJet hands-on: the 3D food printer

Thursday, January 9th, 2014

There’s no shortage of 3D printers in the halls of CES 2014, but 3D Systems’ ChefJet is a bit different to most – it serves up edible 3D-printed sugary snacks. Designed to realise the most complex of pastry chef garnishings (or just the crazed imaginings of deep-pocketed sweet addicts), the ChefJet is the first commercially available 3D food printer.

Nanoport: the magnetic connector that could be built into all future phones and tablets

Thursday, January 9th, 2014

I spent a couple of hours in Eureka Park at CES 2014. Despite its name, it isn’t full of trees and gentlemen in baths, but is rather a place for nascent technology companies to showcase their ideas – and hopefully get some publicity, some financial backing and some interest from big companies.

Nanoport is one of the most intriguing ideas there. It’s a magnetic connector that could be placed in the corner of future smartphones, tablets and peripherals to allow other devices to connect.

Forget Google Glass: LifeLogger promises augmented memory

Thursday, January 9th, 2014

CES 2014 is the first public place I’ve seen people shamelessly wandering round wearing Google Glasses, and to be frank those people look both ridiculous and a little smug. Not a good combination. But Florida-based LifeLogger is promising something different with its device: augmented memory.

While LifeLogger says that it’s the software that really marks out its product compared to anything else on the market, the most natural place to start is with the hardware.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon (2014) review: first look

Thursday, January 9th, 2014

CES 2014 has seen Lenovo continue its blazing run of form, and its newly refined ThinkPad X1 Carbon is no exception. We may not have been fans of the X1 Carbon Touch (we preferred the original, slimmer non-touch model), but 2014 sees Lenovo combine the best of both worlds – the new, touchscreen-equipped X1 Carbon is now the lightest 14in Ultrabook in the world.

Wednesday, January 8th, 2014

The days when every home has a 3D printer might be some way off yet, but not if WobbleWorks has anything to do with it – the company has created a $99 3D-printing pen, the 3Doodler.

Lenovo’s ThinkPad 8 is the first compact Windows tablet to enter the ThinkPad family, and it’s an absolute stunner. With Windows 8.1 powered by quad-core Bay Trail and an 8.4in, 1,920 x 1,200 IPS display, this looks to the be the must-have business tablet.

How to create and view 3D photos with your iPhone: meet Poppy

Wednesday, January 8th, 2014

Poppy3D cameraI’m a bit of a cynic when it comes to 3D, but this little optical box of tricks – on show at CES 2014 and now on sale via Poppy3D.com – caught my imagination.

Perhaps it’s because it looks so wonderfully retro, reminding me of those optical illusion boxes that were all the rage in the 70s and 80s. Or perhaps it’s the outrageous enthusiasm of Poppy’s co-founder, Ethan Lowry, on show in the video below.

Samsung seized the opportunity to unveil its new PRO range of tablets at CES 2014, and the Galaxy TabPRO 8.4 is the baby of the new family. With a 2,560 x 1,600-pixel resolution crammed into its 8.4in display, and a heavily modified version of Android 4.4 KitKat, the TabPRO 8.4 is looking pretty special.
