Google Lens And WorldSense Standalone VR Headsets Announced

Well, what do you know? Using your phone’s camera is going to even more fulfilling soon. No. We are not talking about new selfie technology that will make you look prettier (although that can be deemed fulfilling too); it is a lot more than that. It is a new vision-based computing capability found in a new initiative called Google Lens. Notice how Google’s CEO Sundar Pichai never refer Google Lens to as a product, but an initiative at this year’s Google I/O? And that kind of make me skeptical, but more on why later. Now, on why Google Lens is awesome. Continue reading Google Lens And WorldSense Standalone VR Headsets Announced

Original RollerCoaster Tycoon Theme Park Sim Turned Into Mobile Game

Good news, fans of the original RollerCoaster Tycoon! A new RollerCoaster Tycoon mobile game is out, blending the classic Windows PC game with its sequel RollerCoaster Tycoon 2. Aptly dubbed RollerCoaster Tycoon Classic, this real-time theme-park sim is now on Google Play store as well as Apple Appstore, priced at $5.99. Sadly and not surprisingly, it is not a free-to-download. You have to pay upfront for the game, but we suspect fans who are huge on nostalgia probably won’t mind paying. And if you think 5.99 is the be all and end all, well, it is not. Continue reading Original RollerCoaster Tycoon Theme Park Sim Turned Into Mobile Game

Pokémon Go Detector On Android Wear Lets You Catch Em’all Like A Pro

Everyone who plays Pokémon Go knows that. With the GPS almost always on, high graphics and the works, your phone’s battery isn’t going to last for more than a handful of PokéStop or PokéGym, let alone bagging all the monsters there are to bag. Portable battery or power bank is an awesome proposition (more so if it looks like Kanto-era Pokédex, if we may add), but what you really need is something that will relieve the taxation on your mind and the battery, and the Pokémon PokéDetector App for Android is just the app you need.

Now You Can Watch Videos Bought On Playstation On Your Android Devices

Mobile is a big part of most people’s life and hence, it makes no sense Playstation users can’t watch movies they acquired on the console on their mobile. Seriously, not everyone wants to binge watch Game of Thrones in their living; sometimes folks may prefer the comfort of their beds… and without their parents. Anywho, that changes this week (or at least for Android users), when Playstation announced the availability of the Playstation Video App for Android phones and tablets. The app not only allows to stream previously purchased videos from Playstation Store, but also lets you buy new movies and TV shows right on your smartphone or tablet (think Netflix).

Hyundai Augment Reality Owner’s Manual Will Teach You How to Check Engine Oil Level

Every new car owner will be familiar with the thick car owner’s manual found in the car’s glove compartment, but not many did really pick it up and study it diligently. Why? Lets face it: it is boring as hell. Unless you are already familiar with the concept of automobile workings, that book will more likely be like book on the topic of relativity. It’s like rocket science. However, come later this year, owners of 2015 Sonata will be spared the dreadful tiny words of details and still be able to pick up some knowledge about the workings of their vehicle with Hyundai Virtual Guide app that can recognize more than 45 major features of the Sonata.

Google Translate Now Lets You Translate Instantly By Pointing Your Smartphone Camera At Street Signs

Good news, globetrotters! Google has updated its Google Translate app for both Android and iOS to make life aboard a little easier in term of language. The updated app now gives you the power to instantly translate text using your camera, making it easier for you when navigating street signs in a foreign land, or ordering from menu written in unfamiliar languages. Yep. Soon you will be seeing people (mainly tourists, we suppose) taking pictures of street signs and menus. Not sure if the owner of the restaurants will be amused by the later or not, but that’s another thing to deal with in respect to cultural differences, which obviously the app won’t be able to help. Using camera mode to take an image of text and get a translation isn’t new, but this latest update lets you do it instantly and as we have tested a while ago, it works pretty well.
