GTC 2015: While Jen-Hsun Huang was talking about how powerful the new TITAN X graphics card is, numbers and figures are sometimes not enough for most consumers, and instead they need to see something to tug on their emotions and Jen-Hsun didn’t disappoint one bit.
We all know that EPIC is a huge partner for NVIDIA and to show how they have been working together, a brief real-time video was shown running on the new TITAN X graphics card and we have to admit, it looks pretty damn impressive.
The complete video is below, but if you scroll through to around just before 4 minutes, you’ll see what we’re talking about. Enjoy!
These grainy images depict Sony’s recent leak of an unannounced product promotion. Pictured above you can see the Sony Smartband, now said to be dubbed the SmartWatch 3, and Sony’s more streamlined SmartBand Talk.
9to5Google previously reported on the SmartWatch’s features:
“The SmartWatch 3 will feature a 1.68-inch 320 x 320 display and wll be IP58 certified, but no other details have been confirmed at this point. We’ve also been informed that the Smartwatch 3 will look very similar to Samsung’s Gear 2 Neo in terms of design.”
The SmartBand Talk is said to feature a curved e-ink display and Bluetooth capabilities, following the Sony SWR10 format – which was released earlier in 2014.
Sony’s new wearable devices are set to be officially released at IFA 2014 in a few days time. There’s no denying that SmartWatch releases are coming by the dozens on the market currently, with big players like Samsung and Apple both gearing up for releases.
There has been a lot of talks about wearable devices such as smartwatches in the past. Manufacturers announced and even released their first versions since then, having Samsung and LG already revealing their Gear Live, G Watch and even Motorola is not far behind with its Moto 360.
Aside from the above, most manufacturers appear to keep their plans a secret. HTC is one of them, keeping the plans for its upcoming smartwatch away from consumer eyes. Even so, leaks are bound to surface, and HTC may have revealed a glimpse of its smartwatch design in the video below.
It is said that at 0:35, a HTC employee is seen at his desk with a smartwatch dock besides him and the actual smartwatch on the dock. Details are scarce at this time, but we can clearly see that the company is following Samsung and LG’s design.
Another leaked image can be seen at 0:43, where a team of designers (or so it seems) are rendering the smartwatch design in a 3D software. If the device proves to be a real Android Wear version of what HTC wants to release, it won’t be long before the company will make it official through a statement in the following weeks.

When thinking about holograms, the first thought is about movies and science-fiction books where most have encountered the described technology for the first time, knowing it is just a fictional technological thought or concept. A startup company based in California tends to change this in a fairly small amount of time.
Ostendo is a company claiming to have solved the problems faced with hologram technology with the help of 5,000 PPI projectors measuring in at just about the size of a Tic Tac. The projectors are said to be able to control the colour, brightness and angle of individual beams of light across 1,000,000 pixels.
The company states that one chip is capable of delivering a usable image, but multiple chips are said to make room for even more complex and detailed images. Recent news indicate that The Wall Street Journal received a demo of this amazing technology, having it beam green dice spinning in the air.
Though the technology is still in its early stages, the company is said to deliver a chip capable of rendering 2D images on a surface of up to 48-inches at first. However, Hussein S. El-Ghoroury, the founder of Ostendo, stated that the company will be able to produce a chip capable of rendering “consistent” 3D objects in mid-air just months after the first chip’s release.
The technology did not go unnoticed, having already stirred the attention of some major handset manufacturers. Also, Ostendo is already looking forward into enhancing the product by reducing the pixel size to be able to boost the image resolution of its holograms, as well as thinking of ways to embed its technology into TVs, smartwatches and even tablets.
