The HISY lets you take smartphone photos, without holding the phone

Like 'em or not, it looks like selfies are here to stay. Using the just-released HISY, however, they don't have to possess that "I'm holding my phone out at the end of my arm" look. It's a simple Bluetooth device that lets you prop your smartphone up and get out in front of it, then remotely trigger the phone's camera once you're in place. I recently got my hands on a HISY, and gave it a try.  Read More

The Iridium Go is a satellite-based hotspot for your smartphone or tablet

Smartphones are practically everywhere. But if you're in the middle of nowhere without a signal, that iPhone 5s or Galaxy S4 won't do you much good. Many people already turn to satellite phones when they're at sea or in other far-off places, but a new device from Iridium takes a satellite signal and turns it into a Wi-Fi hotspot for your existing mobile devices.  Read More

The Inside app doesn't require the installation of any hardware in the building

Due to those pesky roofs that block access to satellites, smartphone-based GPS systems don't work for navigating indoor environments such as shopping malls. Some non-GPS alternatives are in development, including ones that incorporate rapidly-blinking LED lights or Wi-Fi signals. The just-announced Inside app, however, utilizes the phone's own standard sensors, and is reportedly accurate up to a distance of down to one meter (3.3 ft).  Read More

Now, a New York-based company wants to print the insoles in your shoes to reduce foot pain and improve posture. Sols Systems has raised US$1.75 million of seed financing from Lux Capita to bring its custom orthotics to market.  Read More

Giving new meaning to "tilt to steer," Israeli tech startup Umoove has developed face- and eye-tracking software for mobile devices that translates gentle head tilts and nods into in-game movements. The company has released the Umoove Experience, a free app for iOS that demonstrates the technology, but hopes third party developers will integrate the technology into their own titles on both iOS and Android devices.  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

The True Love Tester bra automatically unhooks itself when it senses the woman feeling tru...

In one of the more absurd examples of wearable technology we've seen lately, a Japanese firm has created a high-tech bra called the True Love Tester that literally snaps open only when it senses that the woman is in love.  Read More

In implementing Apple's iBeacon technology through a software update, Automatic turned its...

A lot has been said (or left unsaid) about Apple's continued eschewing of NFC in its smartphones. One possible explanation is that the company has a lot of faith in its own iBeacon technology, a Bluetooth Low Energy standard which alerts iPhone apps when you are near a transmitter (beacon), as a replacement. After establishing iBeacons in every one of its domestic US stores, Apple has turned to other applications and with the technology now enabled in the Automatic smart driving assistant, it might just be getting its show on the road.  Read More
