The return of the je-pi: Raspberry 2

Still at 35 bucks, the new and improved Raspberry Pi 2 (model B only) features an ArmV7 quad @900 MHz, instead of the previous ArmV6 single-core @700 MHz. That should enable you to boot Ubuntu or XMBC, ... sorry, Kodi, before your TV actually booted. Apart from the additional CPU horsepower, the GPU is the same and the total configuration is pretty much similar. This little pie carries 4 USB ports, micro-SD slot, HDMI, analog audio, Ethernet and 17 GPIO pins for connecting even geekier gadgets. Of course the camera connection is also still there.

Microsoft also needs glasses...

Meet HoloDeck, Microsoft's reaction to Google Glass and Occulus Rift. Although they call their product "HoloLens", there is obviously nothing holographic about this product, it is simple a pair of dual-display goggles that create a sensation of depth using stereo images. Well, nobody will need more than that for a real 3D experience. Let's hope this baby does not take the same amount of evolution that the Rift required... uhm, requires. Neat gadget!

GoPro at level 4!

The camera that did not miss a single vacation? Of course, ever since the Hero HD made its introduction, GoPro cameras are loved by many! Now, they introduce number 4 (since the Hero HD that is, they actually already popped out earlier models before everybody 'needed' HD). Why do I want the new version 4 model do you think? Well, double frame-rates for a start: 4k@30, 1080p@120 or even 1280x720@240 are pretty awesome! New audio processing and neat low-light processing also sound good. Better user interaction for configuration. Plus, ProTune is now available on pictures too (oh yeah, 30 fps 12 MP still capture!). All speculations have come true, this little baby seems to carry the Ambarella A7 chip! Luckily they did not significantly boost the cost of this pretty little one. Available from October 1, 2014!

Blow up your speaker... upwards yes!

If levitation is your thing, than this speaker will blast you away! Not just because of the fact that the ball-shaped speaker is hovering in the air above its base, but also because the audio quality should be (they make us believe everything!) incredible! In some time, the world will welcome the new baby boom(box), the OM/One. Connecting to your smartphone, this baby vibrates air for about 15 wireless hours.
