The Night Vision Camera That Can Shoot In Color HD



The average consumer might not have too much use for a camera that’s capable of taking pictures and shooting videos in night vision mode, but its quite essential for journalists on the ground who often find it hard to capture and broadcast events transpiring in places where lighting isn’t exactly favorable. This is where Komamura Falcon Eye KC-2000 steps in. The company has been in this business for over 60 years and its latest product is nothing short of a game changer. The KC-2000 night vision camera is capable of shooting video and taking pictures in color HD, even if its actually almost pitch black.



The KC-2000 is weather sealed, making it immune to the elements. It works through a simple two-button operation, there aren’t a lot of settings to tinker with in order to make it do what it does best. Inside there’s a CMOS 2/3″ image sensor offering 1,280x720p HD resolution with a progressive scanning system and 250 percent dynamic range. Video is captured at 30 frames per second and compressed in H.264 while still images are put out in JPEG. Komamura will initially sell the Falcon Eye KC-2000 in Japan through a network of local dealers before it goes international, no pricing information is available at this point in time.

Vertu for Bentley - A Luxury Smartphone


Vertu is a British manufacturer and retailer of luxury mobile phones and Bentley Motors is a British luxury automaker. Bentley is teaming up with Vertu in a five-year partnership that will see the two firms work together to create ‘distinctive’ luxury smartphones.

Now previous Vertu smartphones have ran on Android, so it’s not far fetched to think that these won’t run Android as well. The smartphones will have a taste of Bentley, but also Bentley drivers will get some exclusive stuff with these four new smartphones. All of which are set to launch in October of this year.

Vertu says the new phones will feature elegant, eye-catching designs as well as premium materials in their construction. The phones will also be designed under the Vertu ethos of a ‘one world phone’ to ensure that owners have the optimum setup for peerless coverage no matter what region they’re in.

One of the most important characteristics that we look at a particular device is the battery and one of the most common complaints is that the battery does not last more than a day, especially when talking about high-end devices that are energy intensive.

Most flagships typically hold a maximum of two days and the battery manufacturers sacrifice on the altar of design.

How would you feel if you had a device which comes with a battery that reaches 5000mA; Next month will see these devices are certainly not coming from big companies like Samsung, Apple, Sony, HTC or LG but two rather unknown to us Chinese companies.

The first is the Chinese company Eton for which first heard April that prepares Eton Thor will have 5000mAh battery and will not be so bulky as to be expected, but its thickness will be in 9mm. As for technical features, has the octa-core chipset MediaTek MT6592, has 2GB RAM and Mali-450 GPU. However, it does not support LTE networks while we do not have any information on the screen.

The second company is also Chinese ThL (Technology Happy Life) which revealed the ThL 5000 the first Android smartphone that as seen from its name has 5000mAh battery. The ThL 5000 has 13MP sensor Sony IMX135. The ThL 5000 promises 1,000 hours standby, 47 hours talk time, 11 hours web browsing, 125 ώρες audio listening and 11.6 hours video play.

Top 5 Weird Nokia Mobile Phones

Nokia was the biggest seller of mobile phones before the rise of Androids. Nokia released its weirdest handsets in the mid 2000s. In fact, those were the years when most manufacturers made unusual phones. That’s because there were a lot of buttons that needed to be included on the front (or sides) of devices. Plus, there was no standard form factor for handsets. Flip phones, candy bars, sliders, swiveling phones - everything was a go, and manufacturers often combined design elements from these form factors.


I'm presenting my Top 5 Weird Nokia Phones and let me know which is your favorite. 

1. Nokia 7600



Nokia launched the 7600 (as its second 3G-capable phone) in the year 2003. The 7600 had bulky, leaf-like design which made it uncomfortable to hold in hand and it had a 2-inch display with 128 x 160 pixels, and a VGA camera.


2. Nokia 3620



The 3620, overall design resembling a TV remote control was released in 2003 Sporting screens with 176 x 208 pixels and Symbian Series 60 - thus being a smartphone.


3. Nokia 7280

Nokia 7280, aka the lipstick phone, literally looks like a lipstick - a quite large one, we must say. Released in 2005, the 7280 is just a feature phone, not a smartphone. It offers a small display with 208 x 104 pixels, and doesn’t have a keypad, instead providing a Navi-Spinner which makes text input a frustrating experience.


4. Nokia N-Gage


Nokia has been trying to create a portable gaming device, which resulted in a release number N-Gage in 2003. However, the device was not accepted by critics for several reasons, mainly because of the shape of the hull. Succeeded by N-Gage, released under the name N-Gage QD, was announced in 2004, but the company did not manage to change the opinion of users about the game series N-Gage.


5. Nokia E70, 6822, 6820, 6810, 6800



Introduced in 2002,  Nokia E70, 6822, 6820, 6810, 6800 were designed specially for SMS: the special design of the devices provide access to a full QWERTY-keyboard. Nokia E70, released in 2005, was considered a high-end device which was priced about $500 (₹30000) and was equipped with a 2.1-inch display with a resolution 416 X 352 pixels, 64 MB internal memory, 3G module and Wi-Fi, as well as 2 - megapixel camera.

Which Is The Best Selling Electronic Gadget Ever?!

Apple iPhone 5S - NO!

Samsung Galaxy S4 - NO!

Sony Xperia Z - NO!

As surprising as it might be, with over 250 million total sales, the basic dirt-cheap Nokia 1100 is actually the world’s most popular phone. Not just this - the Nokia 1100 is actually the best selling electronic gadget ever!


The Nokia 1100 had a monochrome display with support for 4 lines of text and a resolution of 96 x 65 pixels. It had no browser, no camera, no mobile data, basically, it was just a phone for calling and texting and it had 2 games on board, one of them being famous 'Snake'.

Among top smartphones, though, it’s probably no surprise that the Apple iPhone 5s is the single most popular gadget. Analysts estimate there are over 100 million iPhone 5s sold and that number will surely continue to grow, so we would not be surprised if one day in the future the iPhone 5s actually surpasses the Nokia 1100. This is just a guess, though, and even if that was to happen, it’d take years.

Do you still own one of these bad boys? Let me know in the comments...

Microsoft's keyboard with gesture support

One of the disadvantages to smaller keyboards, like those of the Microsoft Surface, is that they aren’t as big as full-sized keyboards meaning that using them can be a little cramped. The upside is that the Surface Touch Covers do come with built-in gesture support which we guess makes up for its small size.

Developers from Microsoft Research demonstrated a new input method Type-Hover-Swipe, allowing the keyboard to perceive gestures made over it. To do this in normal keyboard keys have been built between the infrared proximity sensors. These sensors allow you to control your computer using hand gestures at a small distance from the keyboard.


According to the description, “We propose the use of motion signatures a technique that utilizes pairs of motion history images and a random forest classifier to robustly recognize a large set of motion gestures. Our technique achieves a mean per-frame classification accuracy of 75:6% in leave–one–subject–out and 89:9% in half-test/half-training cross-validation.”


What do you guys think? Is this something you’d like to see in the future?

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Android/iOS Game Arriving On 17th April

Gameloft has finally revealed the release date for 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' game for Android, iOS and Windows Phone users. The mobile game will arrive on 17 April, and will be accessible via its respective app stores.


Last month, Gameloft and Marvel released the teaser trailer for the mobile game, which showcased some of the gameplay and villains such as Electro and Green Goblin, two arch-rivals of Spider-Man. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 also includes some of the other iconic villains from the Marvel universe.

This is the open-world sequel to Gameloft's first, Silver Award-winning mobile game adaptation of Marvel's arachnid-like superhero.

You'll be able to combo-hit all the goons you like, and sling as many webs around New York as you can handle. Probably while using an egregious number of Sony-brand products, if it's anything like the movie.

There's also a non-mobile version of the game that will be launching slightly closer to the moment the movie hits cinemas. It will be coming to 3DS (and every home console under the sun) on April 29th.

IUNI U2: A $320 (INR 20K) Phone with Snapdragon 800, 3 GB RAM and 16MP Camera

IUNI, a spin-off brand of China's Gionee (known for making the current world's thinnest Smartphone), is preparing a very interesting handset IUNI U2 which has a 2.2 GHz Snapdragon 800 CPU, 3GB RAM, and a 4.7-inch 1080p display with a pixel density of 469PPI inside.



But that's not all. Reportedly, IUNI wanted to make the best single-handed metal-clad phone possible, so it machined a 0.4 inch (10.2mm) thick body that's 2.56 inches (65mm) wide and 5.38 inches (136.9mm) tall. There is a 10-degree fold at the phone's top and bottom, and the chamfer has a shiny "3D polish".


Perhaps the most interesting part about the IUNI U2, aside from its clean design, handy size, and powerful hardware, are the cameras. At the back, you have a 16 megapixel shooter with a f/2.2 aperture that is capable of recording 1080p videos in a full 60 fps frame rate. Flip it over and you will be greeted by a 4 megapixel f/2.0 camera. Don't let that number fool you, however, since the camera is actually an UltraPixel, the same technology being brandished by the HTC One, and soon the New HTC One. Perfect for those selfies.



The IUNI U2 will run on its own IUNI OS based on Android 4.3. IUNI say their OS is devoid of bloatware and clutter making it a fast and streamlined system.

Chinese E-commerce site Jingdong Mall will be selling the IUNI U2, the 32GB version with 3GB of RAM is just CN¥1, 999 (about $320) unsubsidized, whereas the 16GB version with 2GB RAM is just CN¥1, 799 (about $290). International sales yet unknown.
