They look like big Mentos, but Apple’s AirTags are really clever little GPS-less locator devices that help people keep tabs on stuff that’s prone to getting lost. The gadgets, powered by wee button batteries, employ a super-low-power Bluetooth connection to ping off of Apple devices on the company’s FindMy network. Each tag can ping hyper-specific location information via Bluetooth to let you use your phone like a divining rod, which turns a frustrating hunt for your keys into a fun little game of hotter/colder.

A super-wide focal length enables a 190-degree field of view, which means the setup can see slightly behind itself. Once the footage goes through an editing tool like Adobe Premiere, viewers can get the full VR or stereoscopic 3D experience through a headset like the Oculus Quest 2.

  • Of course a smartphone can’t replace a doctor, but given these devices are with us at almost every moment of the day and can track our every action, it would be remiss to use this ability for good.
  • DJI’s new drone beams the view from its camera straight to a headset back on terra firma.
  • That often means repurposing scraps, finding out-of-the-box solutions, or simply stocking our homes with products singularly capable of making our lives easier.
  • Valve teamed up with PC hardware maker AMD to create a custom CPU and GPU to handle the computing demands that come from AAA titles like Red Dead Redemption 2 or Team Fortress 2.

You can even store over 100 treats in the device and remotely toss them to your pet to keep them entertained with a tasty game of catch.

And a chamois cloth beside your console, there’s not a lot you could do about it…

Sound quality has stepped up a notch as far as offering something that’s more balanced.
