“Double” Turns Your iPad Into a Telepresence Robot
Double is essentially wheels for your iPad (think iPad meets Segway). It basically acts as a battery-powered stand on self-balancing wheels, allowing you to “be somewhere” without actually being there. Using a second iPad (because who only has one?) you can control Double remotely from anywhere.
Double can be useful in a variety of instances. For example, in offices to allow colleagues to be remotely connected, in museums to provide virtual tours so people can experience world-renown exhibits from anywhere in the world, or to replace in-person sales associates at retail stores. Imagine the possibilities. Check out the video to see Double in action.

EXCLUSIVE: Samsung is Reportedly Working on a Galaxy S III-based 16MP Point-and-Shoot
A tipster just sent us some really interesting gossip – Samsung is working on a Galaxy S III-based point-and-shoot camera. The convergence device – called Samsung Galaxy S camera – features the trademark 4.8″ SuperAMOLED screen and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (no info on the chipset though).
Yes, it does sound a bit too good to be true, but let’s dream for a moment and here what our tipster (who has proven reliable on previous occasions) has to say about this camera he claims to have seen with his own eye two weeks ago.
The Samsung Galaxy S camera is described as a Galaxy S III glued to the back of a point-and-shoot camera, with no physical buttons on the back. It is reportedly 1.5 to 2 times thicker than an S III, but that seems too little given the rumored 10x zoom. The camera will feature a 16MP sensor of unkown size, a pop-out Xenon flash and a curved right side to help with the ergonomics.
The Galaxy S Camera will run on Ice Cream Sandwich and will come in Wi-Fi and 3G + Wi-Fi versions (only mobile data, no voice), which is reportedly being pitched to various carriers.
This camera will supposedly be announced at IFA, alongside the Galaxy Note 2. Samsung do have a tendency to announce experimental products at IFA, like its first tablet two year ago and then its first AMOLED tablet and phoneblet last year, so there’s a chance of this turning out to be true. It won’t be the first Android-powered camera either, but having seen no actual proof of the product ourselves, we advise you to take this all with a pinch of salt.
Samsung tells the Story Behind the Galaxy S III design on Video
With all the trials and jury hearings Samsung was forced to reveal a lot of information concerning its design ideas – both hardware and software.
However, now we get to see what’s the inspiration behind the company’s current top dog – the Galaxy S III.
Samsung posted a short video, which takes us through all the ideas that went into the design and even shows us a few glimpses of the manufacturing process.
While the design and material choice of the Galaxy S III aren’t every tech geek’s cup of tee there’s no denying that the smartphone’s build quality is worthy of a flagship.
And we are really glad we didn’t hear the “Designed for humans” slogan anywhere in the video – because… you know, what else could a smartphone be designed for?
