Parrot Bebop Drone With Skycontroller Range Extender
The Parrot Bebop Drone is designed to allow you take awesome pictures and record amazing movies from the height of the skies, offering FPV (First Person View) footage via a dedicated free iPhone or Android app.

The Parrot Bebop Drone roughly measures 12-in (28cm) square and 1.5-in (3.6cm) tall, weighs around 14.5 ounces (that’s a maximum weight of 410 grams), is powered by a rechargeable battery which allows up to 11 minutes of flight at speeds up to 45mph (75KMH) in winds up to 30mph (50KMH). The drone is equipped with a 14MP 180-degree angle of view f2.2 fish-eye lens camera capable of recording full-HD 1080p MP4 movies or taking JPEG and Adobe DNG picture files.

Both, the Parrot drone and the installed camera, can be controlled via the iOs (iPhone, iPad and iPod) or Android FreeFlight Parrot app which connects to your phone or tablet via Wi-Fi and has a range of about 980ft (300 meters). For those looking to extend the flying area of the drone, Parrot offers a Skycontroller addon which features an amplified Wi-Fi radio and 4 antennas to boost the device’s range up to 1.2 miles (2kilometers). The Skycontroller addon runs on Android and allows image output to smartphones, tablets as well as HDMI screens and TVs and VR sets such as the Oculus Rift (via HDMI), Zeiss Cinemizer or Sony FPV.

Copy of Samsung Galaxy NX 4G - The Samsung 20.3MP DSLR Running On Android
While there are biggest Samsung fans (than I am) around, I must admit that Samsung is a company that never ceases to to amaze me by the simplicity of their products and their out-of-the-box thinking. Take for example the Samsung Galaxy NX model (also check the Samsung Galaxy Android Camera (EK-GC100) we featured earlier) – a full DSLR with interchangeable lens that runs on Google’s Android and has access to tens of thousands of photo apps in the Google Play store! But let’s see what’s under the hood:

  • 20.3MP APS-C CMOS Sensor with flash
  • 1/6000 second top shutter speed
  • Fast AF (Hybrid AF System)
  • JPEG, RAW, RAW+JPEG capture and 1920 x 1080 HD video capture @ 30fps
  • Interchangeable Lens compatible with all NX System lenses
  • ISO range from 100 to 25,600
  • 4.8″ LCD touch screen (1.44-million dot resolution)
  • 1.6GHz Quad-core processor + DRIMe IV imaging processor + 2MB RAM + 16GB on board storage
  • Connectivity: GPS, Blutooth 4.0, WiFi, 3G/4G/LTE, NFC/li>
  • Runs on Android Jelly Bean 4.2 with full access to Google Play store

Cool, isn’t it? Especially when you you can download your favorite photo and sharing aps from Google! There’s only one extra thing I wish Galaxy NX had – and that’s voice calling! But hey, I have to be reasonable here, this is not an iPhone or Android smartphone, this is a full DSLR in all its rights!

23-in Full HD HP Sprout Creativity Station Product J4W72AA#ABA
There’s been a while since we heard exciting news from the desktop side of personal computing! But that’s all about to change with the Sprout, the latest HP project in desktop personal computers, a 23-in touch screen Windows 8.1 machine with Intel RealSense 3D camera which combines depth-sensing and infrared cameras for accurate 3D scanning and a second screen projected on a large capacitive touchpad called TouchMat to allow users Kinect-type interactions with the PC. So how does it actually work? The main screen of the Sprout works just like any Windows 8 touch enabled LCD. The Illumintor (that scanner part) scans 2D and 3D objects placed on the TouchMat, transfers them live to a design app on the Sprout and allows users to interact with scans using the same TouchMat as input device and secondary display at the same time! Cool, isn’t it?

ALSO READ about the Cubify Sense 3D Scanner

The HP Sprout Creativity Station is powered by a 4th gen Core i7-4790S processor and has NVIDIA GeForce GT graphics, 1TB of storage, 8GBs of RAM (upgradable to 16GB) and a 23″ Full HD 1080p touch-enabled backlit LCD display.

Panasonic CM1 - The Digital Camera With Phone Functionality
While most mobile phone manufacturers out there battle to attach more and more powerfull cameras to their smartphones, Panasonic takes a different approach to the problem and decides to attach a powerful Android smartphone to a panasonic digital camera.

The result? The Panasonic CM1 smartphone with 1-n sensor and Leica lens.

Announced at Photokina 2014, Panasonic’s CM1 features 20MP resolution, f/2.8 Leica lens, a mechanical shutter, manual control ring and an external lens which, surprisingly, is not there for zooming purposes, but helps better focusing the image. The camera phone weights 7.19oz or 204 grams (that’s only 2.1oz or 60 grams more than the Samsung Galaxy S5) .

On the smartphone side, Panasonic equipped the CM1 with a 4.7in Full HD screen, 2GB of Ram, 16GB on-board storage, 2.3 Ghz quad-core Snapdrgon processor, a microSD card slot allowing expansion with up to 128GB more and a 2,600mAh battery.
