Cyberdyne's new industrial cleaning robot

Better known for producing the advanced exoskeletons, Japan's Cyberdyne is expanding its portfolio with a new industrial cleaning robot for large factories and warehouses.

Sony is doing its best to revitalize its struggling PlayStation Vita portable with two new models, and now it's bringing back its first attempt at a portable gaming console, the PocktStation, in app form.

Sony has launched the world's first 35 mm full-frame interchangeable lens cameras

Mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras offer consumers DSLR-like performance in a much less bulky package, but prothusiasts looking for something bigger than an APS-C sensor may still have to lug around a larger and heavier camera. The playing field is changing though. Panasonic has managed to squeeze a Micro Four Thirds sensor into a body that's smaller than many compact cameras for its new GM1, and now Sony's upped the ante even further. The Alpha 7 and 7R are claimed to be the world's first 35 mm full-frame mirrorless cameras.  Read More

Are rock-solid notifications and Android-wide compatibility enough? Let Gizmag try to help you answer that, as we review the Sony SmartWatch 2.  Read More

Assassin's Creed 4 promises an expanded, open-world take on naval missions

While scouring the floors of Eurogamer Expo the other week, Gizmag couldn't pass up an opportunity to get hands-on with a PlayStation 4 running a demo of Assassin's Creed 4, which, despite being the fifth Assassin's Creed sequel (don't ask), turned out to be one of the most intriguing games on show at the event. No, really.  Read More

The Sony HDR MV1 Music Video Recorder is optimized for recording and sharing musical perfo...

Given that we're living in the Age of YouTube, it's becoming pretty much standard practice for up-and-coming musicians to post videos of their jam sessions or live performances online. And while the affordability of HD video cameras/phones may mean that the visuals in those videos look nice, music is first and foremost an auditory art-form. That's why Sony is introducing a new musical-performance-specific camcorder, known appropriately enough as the HDR-MV1 Music Video Recorder.  Read More

Sony Europe has launched the new Walkman WH Series 3-in-1 headphones

Though many smartphones are also very capable music players, there are some of us who prefer to listen to tunes from a dedicated device while out and about.
