Tour one of Earth’s grandest deserts in Google Street View

Google's Street View Trekker mounted on a camel

Visiting a large desert in person can be difficult. Roads will only take you so far, and you probably aren’t used to navigating gigantic sand dunes. Thankfully, you no longer have to plan a whole adventure just to see this austere beauty at ground level. Google has used camel-mounted Trekker cameras to bring Street View to Liwa, an oasis-laden desert in the southern end of the United Arab Emirates. The move gives you 360-degree panoramas of everything from massive dunes (up to 131 feet high) to date farms. This won’t compare to making the trip yourself, but it’ll probably be much more comfortable.

HTC’s Zoe app arrives for Android, heads to iOS later this year

October 8, 2014 1:45 pm

0

HTC revealed its plan to turn Sense feature Zoe into a full-on social network a couple months back. Today, the company announced that the photo and video-sharing app is exiting its open beta, and is available for compatible Android devices (4.3 and above). If you’re in need of a refresher, Zoe lets you turn snapshots and video clips into highlight reels (Zoes) with music included. It also allows your pals to “remix” photos and videos with yours for collaborative efforts that can now be 7, 15 or 30 seconds in length. And as you might expect, Zoe works with footage from the company’s newfangled RE action cam to produce the final product, should the need arise. So what about the iOS app? While the Android faithful can nab the software today, HTC says that the version for Apple’s gadgets will arrive “later this year.” For now, the curious can take a closer look at the iOS app in the gallery down below. %Gallery-slideshow231391%

Keep your eyes on the game console. Well, a lot of consumers are doing just that: watching the gaming console. About 46% of broadband homes in the U.S. have a gaming console connected to the Web, and
more than one quarter use it as their primary connected consumer electronics device. About three-quarters of those who rely on the gaming console as the main screen say they regularly use it to watch
non-gaming content such as online video.

Last weekend, Maker Studios had a little event at Disney Studios, which is not at all odd because Disney now owns them. But the criss-cross of “little” companies (like Maker once was) made big (by
companies like Disney, and The Chernin Group and others) is a sign of online video growing into adult clothing, and keeping an address at YouTube while building separate franchises of their own.

Pinterest
launches “Say Hello,” a 2:20 video that depicts how its new messaging system works: it lets users have conversations about Pins on Pinterest, making the creative process more contagious than ever. The
video follows three groups of people, each inspired by different Pins and the ease of sharing and discussing newly discovered Pinterest items. One couple sets out to build a canoe, while another is
looking for an ideal dinner meal. A team of colleagues discuss spaceship ideas to create the perfect addition to a future sci-fi movie. The video is a nice balance of people using social media as
inspiration to create things that are offline, with other people. Watch the video here, created by Strike Anywhere.

Make your aging air conditioner cool again with this pile of sensors

October 7, 2014 9:27 am

0

Many folks who reside in South East Asia will agree that during the summer, air conditioners can be temperamental at times — your room’s either too cold or not cold enough. As a result, users — including this author in Hong Kong — end up having to pick up the remote control every now and then to adjust the temperature. This is exactly what Hong Kong’s Ambi Labs is trying to solve: This startup has just launched its Ambi Climate device on Kickstarter, and the idea here is that you’re adding a small hub that uses local weather data plus sunlight, air flow, temperature, humidity and movement detection, in order to adjust the air conditioner accordingly with its infrared transmitter (Ambi Labs says it can quickly add your remote to the database if it’s missing). With the room temperature staying more consistent, you’re saving both energy and the hassle of finding the remote. %Gallery-slideshow230935%
