Kiroco Smart Jewellery

Posted by – April 15, 2014

Kiroco presents their NFC based Smart Jewllery concept which allows you to view personal private messages from a loved one, and these precious memories are then stored so you can view them whenever you wish just by touching the jewellery to your phone.

All of Kiroco’s Jewellery contains an NFC chip which works when touched to the NFC readers in Android Smartphones, which then in turn launches the messages on a person’s piece of jewellery so that they can be viewed – whether a word, photo or video message.

With the exclusion of the K bracelet in white metal the rest of the ranges are made in sterling silvers with enamales, with some pieces containing Swarvoski Crystals or Cubic Zirconia.

Posted by – April 15, 2014

ZTE’s Nubia brand just launched the X6, a 1080p 6.44-inch Smart Phone. This Phone features top-notch specs and premium design with built-in storage up to 128Gb. Because of the big screen the phone might be nicknamed from some as “phablet”, a mix of tablet and phone.

The Nubia X6 phablet has a 7.9mm thin metal body with narrow bezels. The 6.44inches LCD screen has 1080p resolution that sets the pixel density at 344ppi. The phone is powered by a Snapdragon 801 chipset running at 2.3GHz. The chipset is paired with 3GB RAM. ZTE Nubia X6 scores 27966 in AnTuTu Benchmark.

The rear camera features an 13MP sensor with OIS (Optical Image Stabilization). The front-facing camera also has a 13MP sensor. You also can use premium phone cases produced by ZTE for this phone in multiple colors. The phone itself is available in 2 colors: silver and gold. The phone has a 4,250mAh battery and built-in storage with 32Gb storage that costs 3,000 RMB($485), the 64Gb option for 3,500 RMB($565) or the 128Gb option for 4,000 RMB($645). There isn’t a microSD card memory expansion option.

Optinvent ORA SmartGlass with Augmented Reality

Posted by – April 14, 2014

Optinvent is a technology hardware designer company that is working on a augmented reality and smart wearables like glasses.

Optinvent ORA is the smart glasses device that Optinvent is working on at the moment. The ORA feels fairly well built and has a number of design features that are intended to make it usable for all types of workers in various industries. ORA glasses have mounting points for prescription lenses. The Optinvent ORA is powered by Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, and features a very small-screen version of Google’s operating system. The device is controlled using the touchpad, which moves a cursor.

The glasses have an arm that moves up and down, which can place the display directly in the user’s eyeline or just below it for quick glances. What that “True AR” mode effectively amounts to is a tilting display, one that can sit just below your eye-level for a “dashboard view” of incoming messages and other notifications, or moved right into your field of vision if you plan on going full-RoboCop. Google’s Glass by comparison always places onscreen information above your eye-line.

Other specs include an eye-searing 3,000 nits brightness level, an ambient light sensor, a rechargeable battery good for between 4 and 8 hours of usage and a display that when positioned right in front of your eyes is the equivalent of having an 85-inch TV dangling off your face. The battery is said that will last three hours with intensive use or eight hours with typical use. The Optinvent ORA price starts at €699.

Optinvent is based in Rennes, France and Silicon Valley, United States.
