Light Start – GoPro drone delay, NX cartridges, mobile Netflix, and Intel drone upgrades

GoPro’s having a tough year, and its also had to delay its drone to year-end You have to feel for GoPro, in a business sense.

Sending a GoPro into space at Mach 5.5

What happens when you strap a GoPro Hero 4 to the side of a six-metre SL-10 rocket and launch it into space? If you’re lucky enough to get the multiple-separation shot that these guys did, you’re going to be coming back with some amazing footage.

Light Start – MacOS, Seat360, Sharp’s RoboHon, and GoPro everywhere

Apple’s OS X could become MacOS, and we’re okay with that What’s in a name, right? Er… potentially billions upon billions of whatever currency you favour, actually.

Drones: Novel today, common tomorrow

A new study from UK-based Juniper Research has found that the falling cost of drones, the increased number of players in the nascent drone market and a growing number of use cases are all aligning to ensure that drones, while still novel and relatively rare today, are likely to become commonplace and affordable sooner than you might think. Juniper expects drone sales to climb from less than four m...[Read More]

Light Start – Yamaha Sport Ride, GoPro drone, Nintendo mobile, a MacBook hub, and Facebook scams

Yamaha’s Sport Ride concept car is something we’d ride, endlessly Yamaha’s teaser last week for their Tokyo Motor Show reveal of a sports car based on the company’s motorcycles (weird, we know) was worth the wait. Visually, anyway, as the company has yet to say anything about the engine in the newly unveiled Sport Ride car concept. What we do know is that it’s super l...[Read More]

Shake to edit with TomTom’s Bandit action cam

Action cameras are becoming so commonplace that, if it’s high-quality video you’re after, you’re utterly spoilt for choice.

Light Start – Radeon goes solo, DJI’s aerial cam, GoPro VR, Ultima Evolution, and Star Wars Land

AMD and Radeon part ways – in a manner of speaking Some industry news, and only applicable if you’re hoping to impress someone with your grasp of the finer details of Intel/AMD/Nvidia rivalry, is that AMD has announced places to turn their graphics division into a standalone called Radeon Technologies Group. Which, if you remember the great ATI/Nvidia wars of 2008 (those were the days)...[Read More]

Light Start – GoPro goes social, a manned drone, bodies better than Bluetooth and Instagram Direct grows up

Wearables could one day send data through our bodies instead of via BluetoothBluetooth may be the de facto way of getting wearables to communicate with other devices like our smartphones, but a team at the University of San Diego in California is testing a system that uses the human body’s natural magnetic field to transfer data instead.
