Turris Omnia: high performance open source router

Posted by juliusaugustus – April 9, 2017

Turris Omnia is powered by Turris OS open source software based on OpenWRT with a lot of improvements like automatic updates, collective/adaptive firewall, honeypots and comfortable LXC integration, Turris Omnia runs on a Marvell Armada 385 ARMv7 CPU 1.6GHz dual-core on with three gigabit interfaces for smooth gigabit throughput, 1 or 2GB of DDR3 RAM, 8GB of eMMC running BTRFS, it can be used as a server not only home server, NAS, printserver, virtual server and more. Wired connection is supplied by a 1Gbit/s WAN port and 5Gbit/s LAN ports. With SFP cage for fiber modules and 3x miniPCIe for Wi-Fi and LTE (SIM slot prepared on board, miniPCIe modem needed), Wi-Fi can do 1300Mbit/s (3x3MIMO) on 5GHz ac and 300Mbit/s (2x2MIMO) on 2.4GHz n by default. Those can be upgraded by changing the setup, cards or antennas. One of miniPCIe buses can be also used as mSATA for upgrading the storage. Connecting standard SATA drives is also possible via miniPCIe-SATA driver. Omnia has internal power connector prepared for this already so you can make a NAS of Omnia without any external PSU. It also has GPIO header on board for RaspberryPi, Arduino etc., open serial console header, JTAG connector, cryptochip-the dedicated chip for generating random numbers for certificates and bunch of other features like IoT can be connect via the miniPCIe card slot.

Vuzix Blade AR3000, the coolest Augmented Smart Glasses yet with see-through waveguide technology

Posted by juliusaugustus – March 2, 2017

Vuzix AR3000 are the coolest Smart Glasses I have yet seen, with an awesome see-through waveguide technology with dual ultra-slim “Cobra” 0.2" WVGA DLP display engines, using projection through a prism, AR3000 runs Android on a Quad-core Marvell ARM processor, touch pad, noise canceling mics, and two HD cameras with one for gesture support. The wearer will be able to reach out and manipulate virtual 3D objects overlaid in the real world. Ultimately positional information will be captured to allow 3D objects to effectively behave and interact with real-world objects. AR3000 has Wi-Fi and Bluetooth to connect and interact through the cloud or the smartphone, tablets and PCs. Battery life ranges from 1.5 to 2.5 hours but can easily be tethered to any USB Powerbank to extend the battery life indefinitely. Vuzix would like to be able to ship this in a volume that can bring the price below $500.
