Snap Inc. is trying to do Google Glass one better. The “failure” of the search giant’s eyeglass-mounted camera has not deterred the company that brought you Snapchat from developing Spectacle, a new type of sunglasses with tiny integrated video cameras that connect to the Net directly.
The keyboard’s new release, v2.1, tries to predict what you want to write by learning from what you type & what you erase out, now even letting you type swear words, which it wouldn’t do earlier.
The phone sports a classy new seamless uni-body design & is built in 2 new finishes: matte black & high gloss jet black. It’s splash & water resistant & comes in 2 sizes.
‘Dexmo’ captures the full range of hand motion & gives timely force feedback, so users can feel the size, shape & stiffness of virtual objects.
The Lab working on the project expects that in the future, the process for assembling phones will end up being much simpler & cheaper than current mass production processes.
