Scientists at the University of California San Diego have created a smartphone case to measure the level of glucose in the blood. It is being developed by a team led by professors Patrick Mercier and Joseph Wang.

Reusable sensor at the corner of GPhone

How does it look?


The 3D-printed case is named the GPhone. It draws its power from the phone's battery. There is a reusable sensor at one of the corners. This sensor is connected to a printed circuit board. The removable stylus on the side is filled with pellets. One pellet is dispensed at a time, and each pellet is for one-time use only. The product is still in the prototype phase.

How does it work?


One has to fetch a pellet from the stylus and place it on the sensor. A magnet holds it in place, and the sensor is powered up.

The next step involves placing a sample of blood on the pellet. Glucose oxidase, an enzyme present in the pellet, reacts with the glucose in the blood and generates an electric signal. The signal's strength is directly proportional to the glucose concentration in the blood. The electrodes of the sensor measure the signal and transmit the data to the smartphone via Bluetooth. The data is then presented to the user as a number on an application built for the purpose.

The sesnor on the GPhone is connected to a PCB

Data collected over time can be used to track progress, or interpreted in other meaningful ways.
Each test run takes around 20 seconds. Once done, the pellet is thrown away, which deactivates the sensor.

Challenges at hand


1. Cost of the pellets is more than the paper strips used in conventional test kits.
2. Each test run needs at least 12 drops of blood! Research is underway to reduce it to the bare minimum.

Last year's Amazon Kindle Oasis has got an upgrade. The newer variant is slimmer than its predecessor and comes with a 7-inch display. Prominent newly-added features include water resistance, support for audiobooks, and ambient light sensor.

Amazon Kindle Oasis 2017

The screen is an inch larger, and the count of LED backlights has also increased from 10 to 12. The sharpness of 300 pixels-per-inch is retained. The much-needed ambient light sensor is added, thus making it capable of automatically adjusting light depending on the surrounding conditions.

The new Kindle Oasis is IPX8 certified, making it the first of its name to be resistant to water up to an hour and under 6.5 feet. There are two variants of the device - one with 8 GB internal storage, and the other with 32 gigs memory. More space means more books, including support for audiobooks. The only downside is that the audio output has to be relayed to a Bluetooth-enabled speaker or earpiece since there is no headphone jack.

Amazon Kindle Oasis 2017 rear

The design has been retained, including the much-talked-about sidebar. It is heavier (194 grams) because the body is made from a single piece of aluminum. Amazon is claiming a six-week recharge cycle on the new Kindle Oasis.

In the US, the 8 GB model is priced at $250, while the one with 32 GB memory costs $280 ($350 if cellular connectivity supported). There are two new covers as well, made of fabric (priced at $45) or leather (costs $60). They do not have those extra batteries but can be used as stands for hands-free usage. Pre-orders are open, and shipping starts at the end of the month.

In India, the 8 GB variant is priced at ₹21,999 and the 32 GB variant (WiFi and 3G) costs ₹28,999. The fabric cover is priced at ₹2,999, and the leather one costs ₹3,999. You can pre-order it now, and shipping starts from the 15th of the next month.

Logitech has unveiled their latest wireless keyboard, the Logitech Craft, at IFA 2017 in Berlin. What is new in this smart keyboard is the presence of a multi-function dial. It is aimed at professional designers and other creative professionals to help increase their productivity. The idea is to use the keys for typing, the mouse to navigate, and the newly added dial to access critical software functions and toolsets.

Logitech Craft

The keys on the Logitech Craft are backlit when needed. The intensity of the light adjusts automatically depending on the room conditions. It can be wirelessly connected via Bluetooth or a USB plug. An Easy-Switch button will switch the connection over up to three connected devices.

Logitech Craft wireless keyboard comes with a multi-function dial

Aptly named the Crown, the smart dial is located at the top-left. It is made up of aluminum. It can be used to perform various context-specific actions when running a list of software on your Windows PC or Mac. Think of it as a second mouse, but with auto-defined actions (depending on the software in use) on touching, tapping or turning the dial.

For instance, the knob can change the brush size in a painting application, or adjust the image's brightness, contrast, and saturation in Adobe Photoshop. It can also alter the font size in Windows Word, or choose a chart type in Windows Excel. Other than app-specific functions, the Crown can also adjust system volume and help navigate across desktops or applications in use.

Logitech Craft comes with a built-in battery that is chargeable via USB. The manufacturer promises one-week backup before charging again. It is due for release next month at a price of $200.

Watch the keyboard in action in the video below:

Due to limited space, or budget, or both, people tend to avoid investing in a high-end audio setup for their television sets. Sound bars try to solve this problem as they deliver loud sound while occupying lesser space. Sky, the cable provider from England, has teamed up with French start-up Devialet to create Sky Soundbox.

Sky Soundbox

The collaboration involves Devialet designing and producing the speaker, while Sky is just adding its brand name to the product.

Sky Soundbox comes in a compact black package (375x210x95 mm). It consists of six woofers and three full-range speakers. The walls of the room (in which the soundbar is deployed) are used to reflect the sound for an immersive experience.

Dynamic volume management automatically adjusts the volume depending on the content being played on the screen - whispers are loud, and explosion sounds are controlled. Dialogue Enhance mode makes speech clearer. Kids mode allows configuring the maximum volume. Late Night mode drops the bass.

On the connectivity front, Sky Soundbox supports HDMI, optical cable, and Bluetooth 4.1. In the UK, the speaker will be available in autumn this year at varied prices. Sky subscribers will be charged £299 ($390 approx.), while those who have the top Sky cable plan will pay £249 ($325 approx.). The retail price is £799 ($1,045 approx.). 
Intel's latest product, the Movidius Neural Compute Stick, packs deep learning algorithms into a standard USB drive. The idea is to make the powerful neural networks and Artifical Intelligence systems not only limited to large organizations but also available to small-scale businesses and developers.

Intel Movidius Neural Compute Stick

The aim is to allow a broad range of AI applications to be built for mobile devices.

The Intel Movidius Neural Compute Stick is powered by a Myriad 2 visual processing unit (VPU). The VPU is specifically designed for handheld and wearable devices. Faster processing power (more than 100 gigaflops) is combined with low power consumption (1W) and small size. All these properties make it a perfect fit for the use case in question.

The USB device can run the standard neural networks deployed in the industry. It can be tweaked to run custom-designed networks as well. It can also be used as an accelerator to boost the power of an existing computer.

The Intel Movidius Neural Compute Stick is priced at $79.

At this year's I/O keynote, the company has announced three updates for Google Home, its voice-based virtual assistant for homes.

Google Home

Hands-free calling


With the help of Google Assistant, Home shall be able to call any number in the US and Canada. The best part is that Google will not charge any additional fee for the same. Hands-free calling supports multiple users as well, so Home will perform the personalized action depending on who is requesting for it.

Increased entertainment options


Google Home now supports HBO Now, CBS All Access, HGTV (Netflix is already added) and also Spotify's free service along with Soundcloud ad Deezer, hence increasing the number of available entertainment options. Bluetooth is supported as well.

Visual responses via Chromecast


Adding interfacing with other devices like smartphones and TV screens (via Chromecast), Google Home will now 'show' information instead of just speaking it out. For instance, when asked for driving directions, Assistant will route it to the smartphone. If connected via Chromecast, appointments and search results can be viewed on the big screen.

Google Lens and standalone Daydream VR headsets are also announced. Stay tuned for more announcements from the Google I/O event.
The Google Daydream mobile Virtual Reality platform is getting an interesting expansion. In this world of smartphone-based VR headsets, Google has announced at the I/O event that standalone VR headsets will be manufactured.

Google Daydream based VR headsets will now be standalone


What this effectively means is that the new headsets will not rely on any device whatsoever, be it a console, PC, or smartphone.

Even though there is not much information regarding how this is supposed to work, Google has hinted at the use of WorldSense to achieve the same. The technology will not require any external sensors. It will employ inside-out positional tracking instead.

As far as motion control is concerned, the sketches presented by the company at the keynote hints at a controller just like the one that ships with Daydream View.

HTC Vive branded standalone VR headsets are coming soon


Google has partnered with HTC and Lenovo to produce such devices. HTC's Vive branded standalone VR headset is expected to hit the markets sometime later this year. Exact release dates or pricing information is not revealed yet.

Google Lens and updates to Google Home are also announced. Stay tuned for more announcements from the Google I/O event.

Nintendo has released a video showing the looks of the much awaited Nintendo Switch, aka the Nintendo NX.


April 27, 2016:


We have a good and a bad news for avid gamers. The bad news is that the mysterious gaming console from the house of Nintendo (yes, we are talking about the NX) is not going to launch anytime this year. Instead, it will launch, wait for it, in March next year. That's the good news.

Nintendo NX

After a lot of speculations, Nintendo has finally confirmed the NX launch date via a tweet posted by them. After a lot of fake leaks regarding the console's controller, we are happy to have an official statement. A lot of rumors over time have also hinted towards the NX being a hybrid of console and handheld form, but sadly there is no official information that can clear the air around the matter.

Additionally, according to another tweet, the upcoming Legend of Zelda game will simultaneously launch on Wii U and NX in 2017. In fact, it will be the focus of the next press event by Nintendo, which is scheduled for June this year. Unfortunately, this means that the gaming community will have to wait almost an year to get their hands on the new game. Better late than never.

Miitomo, the smartphone game by Nintendo which was launched earlier this year has now been played by more than 10 million people. As a result, the company has decided to bring more apps to smartphones, and this list includes the famous Fire Emblem and Animal Crossing.





And now we wait.
Most of us use memory cards with our smartphones and digital cameras to make sure we have that extra storage when it is needed the most. At Photokina 2014, SanDisk introduced a 512 GB memory card. Taking this a step further, they have now revealed a prototype of the 1 TB SDXC card at the same event this year held in Cologne, Germany.

SanDisk 1 TB SDXC card prototype

Going a few years down the memory lane, the first SanDisk 64 MB SD card was introduced sixteen years ago. (link)

Increasing demand for 4K and 8K video content, and applications employing Virtual Reality, 360-degree video solutions, and 24x7 video surveillance systems are perfect candidates that expect more-and-more storage in the devices they run on. This 1 TB card should fit their purpose.

“Just a few short years ago the idea of a 1 TB capacity point in an SD card seemed so futuristic – it is amazing that we are now at the point where it is becoming a reality. With the growing demand for applications like VR, we can certainly use 1 TB when we are out shooting continuous high-quality video. High-capacity cards allow us to capture more without interruption, streamlining our workflow, and eliminating the worry that we may miss a moment because we have to stop to swap out cards,”

said Sam Nicholson, CEO of Stargate Studios and member of the American Society of Cinematographers.

SanDisk 1 TB SDXC card prototype

Since this is just a prototype, price and availability dates for the product are not known. However, the price can be speculated from the fact that the 512 GB card retailed at $799 in the beginning. The figure later fell to $599.
