Peugeot’s Instinct concept car has active driving and autonomous modes

27 February, by Romain Dillet[ —]
bd-peugeot-g17-coupole-3-4-av Some concept cars aren’t really cars and stop at the concept part. But Peugeot’s new Instinct concept car has a couple of interesting ideas. In particular, the interior will change depending on the driving mode (active driving or self-driving). Peugeot unveiled the car at MWC today in Barcelona. I generally hate concept cars are they are mostly unimplementable designs that… Read More

For IBM’s CTO for Watson, not a lot of value in replicating the human mind in a computer

27 February, by Frederic Lardinois[ —]
The servers that power IBM Watson. “Everybody and their mother is out to create their own specialized voice-activated devices,” IBM fellow and CTO for its Watson project Rob High told me during an interview at MWC. IBM, of course, doesn’t offer a direct competitor to Siri, Google Assistant or Alexa, but the company hopes that developers will choose Watson, in all its various guises, to power their AI apps,… Read More

Oppo shows off impressive new zoom technology, but forgets to put it on a real phone

27 February, by Brian Heater[ —]
img_1066 Oppo’s big Mobile World Congress announcement wasn’t an actual phone. Sure it arrived in a prototype roughly the size and shape of a phone, but it wasn’t really. It was proof of concept, the company showing off the imagine technology it’s spent the last year working on. That’s not to say it wasn’t impressive. The company has apparently cracked the code on… Read More

Why Nokia’s feature phone nostalgia stole the thunder from this year’s flagships

27 February, by Brian Heater[ —]
nokia-3310-3-of-2 Mobile World Congress kicked off over the weekend with press conferences from Samsung, Sony, LG and Motorola. But all anyone seems to care about is a 17-year-old device. A reboot. A candy bar feature phone whose main selling point is its ability to play Snake, eclipsing BlackBerry’s own nostalgia-themed KeyOne smartphone. That feels like as bold an indictment of the mobile industry… Read More

27 February, by Sarah Perez[ —]
twitch-logo Amazon-owned video game streaming site Twitch announced this morning that it will now sell games directly on its platform – a not entirely surprising expansion for the service where developers are already taking advantage of the site’s social community to get the word out about their games, and engage fans.

But now app development house Kinetise is offering the best of both worlds. Kinetise, who I’ve talked about for years as an interesting alternative to coding your own Android and iOS apps, came… Read More

Space satellite orbiting the earth. Elements of this image furnished by NASA. Low-Earth orbit is a prime candidate for explosive commercial growth, but it’s also a space where the risk of actual explosions resulting from debris impact is a legitimate concern for businesses focused on the opportunity. That’s the problem LeoLabs aims to address, a startup spun out of SRI International to detect, map and help avoid collisions with debris and objects floating… Read More
