The Tag Heuer uses light for power

In 2008, Tag Heuer introduced its first mobile phone, the US$6,200 Meridiist. Well, as if a luxury phone made by a company usually associated with premium watches isn't eyebrow-raising enough, the just-announced Meridiist Infinite offers a little something extra: a built-in photovoltaic panel that keeps it powered up and charging as long as there's light.  Read More

The MagicOn Ayane has a built-in pico projector

Despite smartphones packing integrated pico projectors being around for a good few years now, it's fair to say that they haven't really set the mobile technology buying public on fire. Hong Kong's Conplex International is hoping that the promise of walking into a meeting and being able to give a presentation on any blank wall, or being able to view photos with friends on a big screen without needing to find a TV that's not already being used, will tempt buyers to its MagicOn Ayane smartphone.  Read More

Microsoft unveiled its latest version of Windows 8.1 at its developer's conference

On Wednesday at its developers conference, Microsoft announced that after bringing back the Start button, it’s now rolling out a package of new features for Windows 8.1 Update and Windows Phone 8.1. Based on customer feedback, it’s part of an effort to make 8.1 feel more like older versions of Windows by stepping away from the touchscreen, cloud-centric version of Windows 8 that proved less than a hit with consumers.  Read More

The Cogito Classic from ConnecteDevice

As so-called smartwatches become more smart and less watch, they run the risk of losing some of the latter's charm and style. Building on the success of its Cookoo "connected complication" that combined analog movement with a connected digital display, Hong Kong's ConnecteDevice has released two versions of a new Cogito model – a Classic dress watch and a fun-loving design named Pop. Gizmag stopped by the company's booth at Baselworld in Switzerland for a closer look.  Read More
