A look at the NVIDIA Jetson TX1

8

I've been looking at the new NVIDIA Jetson TX1 Developer Kit for a few days, and while it's not directly Android-related, it's too cool not to talk about.

This is the future of technology in its own tiny package. Machines can already see, hear and learn. They can drive a car. They can build a car. They fill ink cartridges, test condoms, and pick oranges — all without any direct human intervention. But things get really interesting when you join a bunch of them together and help them teach themselves, and each other.

You've probably heard the term "Neural Network" and might even know what one is and how they work. You get a bunch of powerful computers networked together, and let them let them analyze what they see, or hear, or gather from any other source of input. Together they learn and share data, so they can do things like read handwriting, detect cancer, play chess or trade shares on the stock market. Cognitive science isn't exactly a new thing, but it's taken off in a big way in the past few years.

Products like the NVIDIA Jetson TX1 are going to be a big part of where we go from here, and how fast we get there.

Philips Hue dimmer switch review: An easy way to connect your lights

17

Philips recently launched a remote control for its connected Hue light bulbs. The previous remote, called the Tap, could change entire color sets between four buttons, and was powered by the kinetic force of pressing the device. The new dimmer switch maintains a much slimmer profile, but only works with white Hue bulbs and is battery-powered.

That sounds like an even trade-off, but the dimmer switch has one extra feature that could clinch a decision between the two — read on.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Wallet Cover Folio review

19
Quick look at Samsung's wallet case for the Note 5

Samsung's Wallet Cover Folio for the Galaxy Note 5 may not be the most protective of case options, but it's designed well, and is highly functional. When looking for cases, everyone's needs are different — some want protection while others look to make things easier for themselves.

Having used the Galaxy Note 5 without a case for a while already, and having no issues with keeping the phone safe, I was in the market to reduce clutter, and wanted a way to carry my ID with me without always needing my wallet.

It's small enough to easily travel with and includes basic buttons for quick adjustments, but does the Anker Classic Speaker keep up with higher volumes? Not so much.

SoundPal F3 Bluetooth Speaker review

0

Perfect for parties around the house, SoundPal's F3 Speaker sounds amazing for any genre of music you push through it and at any volume level.

This speaker is one that has built up quite the positive reputation, and for good reason — it sounds really, really good. It's portable, but isn't exactly the most low profile Bluetooth speaker up for grabs. The simple and straightforward design is pleasing when matched with its impressive audio quality — something that isn't always common in the traditional wireless speaker.
