Nearly five years ago, Iain Sinclair Designs launched a credit card-sized compact camera concept called the Poco Pro. Though it generated quite a bit of interest, component supply difficulties meant that the project quickly ran aground. Now Iain's son, Grant, has updated the design and launched an Indiegogo to bring the new Poco to production. Built around a Raspberry Pi compute module, the pocket-sized "supercomputer" can be a bike-mounted actioncam, hi-res music player, handheld gaming console and portable web browser.
Pokémon announced today that it will be bringing Pikachus, Mudkips, and
Bulbasaurs to an entirely new realm never inhabited by Pokémon before:
real life. In collaboration with Niantic, developer of the
augmented-reality sci-fi game Ingress, players can expect Pokémon Go
to use physical locales as settings for the otherwise familiar
collecting, battling, and trading. Aiding players is a new device called
the Pokémon Go Plus, which will augment the mobile game available for
Android and iOS devices.
The iPod touch is a device without a clear purpose, but these days it may be used most for gaming. Why not see how it compares to the newest ("Slim") version of the Sony PS Vita?
