Gizmag reviews Rocksmtih 2014 from Ubisoft

When Rocksmith was released in 2011, it had all the ingredients of a gaming pie capable of satisfying kings of Guitar Hero and Rock Band controllers wanting to learn how to play a real instrument in a familiar digital environment and new six-string slingers looking for an entertaining, full-featured learning package. The platform has now been refreshed for 2014, and Gizmag has spent some considerable time in the company of Rocksmtih's infinitely patient, always available virtual guitar teacher on Ubisoft's note highway to callus hell.  Read More

Gizmag takes one last look at the Moto X: a groundbreaking phone we may or may not see mor...

This week Google shocked the tech world by announcing that it was selling Motorola Mobility to Lenovo. While that raises lots of questions about future Motorola phones, it doesn't take anything away from the company's current flagship, made entirely under Google ownership. Read on, as we use our first hands-on with the wood-backed version as an excuse to revisit the terrific Moto X.  Read More

It was just a few months ago that we showed you what is probably the world's smallest consumer quadcopter, the tiny Estes Proto X. Although it's a marvel of modern engineering, Gizmag writer Jonathan Fincher noted that it lacks any particularly interesting features, such as a camera. Well, late last year, Hubsan released its X4 H107D FPV. It's not much bigger than the Proto X, and it has a camera that transmits a real-time video signal to the user. When I heard about it, I knew I had to try it out.  Read More

Gizmag reviews Amazon's best tablet to date, the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9

Two years ago, Amazon's first Kindle Fire was a popular tablet. But let's be honest: apart from a tempting price tag, it didn't really hold a candle to higher-end rivals like the iPad. Fast-forward to today, and Amazon has managed to merge budget pricing with hardware that, in some ways, is actually superior to its competitors from the high-rent district. Join Gizmag, as we review Amazon's best tablet to date, the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9".  Read More

Gizmag reviews the Google Glass Explorer Edition 2.0

When Google first told us about Glass back in 2012, it was very much an unattainable product of the future. Hell, it even had a futuristic-sounding name: Project Glass. Yet here we are, less than two years later, and countless folks have plunked down a cool US$1,500 for the Explorer version of Google's smart glasses. That future may still be in beta, but it's here nonetheless. Join Gizmag, as we review the Google Glass Explorer Edition 2.0.  Read More

Gizmag reviews the Qualcomm Toq smartwatch, with its gorgeous Mirasol display

Read on, as Gizmag reviews a consumer product that doubles as a reference design, the Qualcomm Toq smartwatch.  Read More

The AWB OneSky is aimed at beginners (Photo: Astronomers Without Borders)

Astronomers Without Borders (AWB) is a nonprofit organization aimed at knocking down national and cultural boundaries by encouraging a common interest in astronomy. Along with their message that we all share one sky, AWB is now selling a neat little grab-n-go telescope called OneSky. The scope is perfectly suited for a quick look at the heavens from the backyard, as well as for throwing in the car before heading to darker skies. I'm reviewing this scope, and it is a prize for the price.  Read More

Gizmag reviews Mario's latest adventure on the Wii U, Super Mario 3D World

After several decades, you'd think the Mario franchise would be growing stale. Having started as a few colored pixels in 1981's Donkey Kong, Mario now leaps through fully-realized 3D worlds presented in HD. Yet somehow Nintendo has managed to squeeze the same timeless charm that entranced children of the 80s into today's much more technically-advanced games. Join Gizmag, as we review the plumber's latest adventure on the Wii U, Super Mario 3D World.  Read More
