The HTC Re camera: An AC editor roundtable

34
HTC Re camera

Here's what we think about HTC's RE camera now that we've used it a bit.

When HTC announced the RE camera in the fall of 2014, plenty of people were curious. HTC is branching out and building "lifestyle" products (their words, not mine) and started with an accessory that was odd-looking, yet intriguing. It didn't look like a handheld camera (or even a GoPro), but it had a 16-megapixel wide-angle lens and a promise of being able to take great pictures. We all had to try it.

Fast forward a few months, now that we all have had a while to give the RE camera a real-life workout, and it's time we gave our long-term impression about the handheld camera that looks like an asthma inhaler.

Strap in and have a read.

Wireless charging, in plain English

104
Qi transmitter coil

Wireless charging isn't magic, just convenient.

Wireless charging, like the Qi charging many Android phones use, isn't new technology. My Panasonic electric razor used it many years ago, and most of us have seen toothbrushes that charge wirelessly in a cradle. And of course, we can't forget Palm and the way they brought wireless charging (though a different standard) to the masses with the Touchstone. Now that size, cost and efficiency constraints have all eased up a little, putting wireless charging in something like your Android phone or watch makes perfect sense.

We get more than a few questions about wireless charging and how it works, so let's take a few minutes and talk about the basics — what it is, how it works and why you would want it in your next Android purchase.

Accessory printing - the ultimate customization for your Android

33
3D Printed Accessories

Making your own smartphone and tablet accessories with a 3D Printer opens you up to a whole new world of possibilities.

It's late, something like 2 a.m., and everyone in the house has almost simultaneously discovered the need for tacos. I hop into the passenger seat, throw my phone into the cupholder, and off we go. On the way back from this random taco run, a deer wanders out into the road and my friend slams on his brakes. Everyone's fine, but my phone has flown out of the cupholder and is now sliding around on the floor of the car just out of reach. Shortly after recovering the phone, I decide that an actual mount for my phone needs to happen. Rather than head to my usual retail site, I went to Thingiverse and took a quick look at what other folks have made already that fits this need. I see something that interests me, send the file to the 3D Printer in my office, and when I wake up the next morning my new car dock is ready to be used.

This completely true story got me thinking about all of the possibilities that open up when you decide to just print your own accessories. While there are some serious caveats to what is actually possible here, the experience is impressive all the same.
