NVIDIA unveiled two new Shield models powered by the company’s Tegra X1+ processor that delivers up to 25% more performance than its predecessor.

That’s not all, the Tegra X1+ also improves picture quality by using AI to upscale HD video streams into 4K resolution. The cylindrical Shield TV boasts a slim, stealthy design that blends into entertainment centers, complete wth Gigabit Ethernet and dual-band Wi-Fi for lightning-fast connectivity. More information.
The GoPro MAX has officially been launched, and it’s actually a three in one device: a traditional HERO-style single lens shooter, a front-screened vlogging camera, and an immersive spherical capture. This is possible due to its two main lenses – one on either side, while still being waterproof up to 16-feet and utilizing GoPro’s HyperSmooth digital video-stabilization technology to shoot video at a maximum resolution of 1080p/30fps.

Officially called the “Click to Pray eRosary”, this just might be the strangest smart gadget you’ll ever come across. It’s shaped like your standard rosary and designed to teach the technology-focused youth how to pray properly. The eRosary can be worn like a bracelet and is activated by making the sign of the cross. There’s a companion smartphone app which synchronizes with the gadget and gives you access to an audio guide, exclusive images, personalized content, as well as to track user progress.
The problem with most smartphones is that there is just too much going on at once, whether it be notifications, calls, texts or other distractions. Mudita Pure wants to keep things simple by only offering the most basic of functions, similar to what the mobile phones of the early 2000s were like. You use directional buttons to navigate menus, and its E-ink display measures just 2.84-inches (600 x 480 resolution) with just 16 shades of grey.
Set for release later this month, priced at $129.99, the Canon IVY REC is a clippable, wearable camera that easily snaps onto a belt or bag. Plus, the clip doubles as a viewfinder, which means you won’t have to worry about accidentally cracking a screen should there be a tumble. With just one click, you’ll be able to capture both photos and videos directly to the Canon Mini Cam app. When paired with a compatible mobile device, you’ll be able to keep an eye on battery life, remaining image capacity, video recording resolution (720p or 1080p), and image size.
