Too immersed in the World Cup over this past week to get up to date with everything happening in the world of tech? Fret not – we’ve got you covered with the top news of the week to keep your mind refreshed.
Xiaomi’s got a goodie stash under wraps
We’re itching to know what other tech gizmos Xiaomi has yet to reveal. Its president and co-founder, Bin Lin, recently uploaded a teaser on his Facebook page, announcing that it'll be launching at least one new product during its annual product launch event in Beijing on 22 July. The only clue is it will be made from “one steel plate”. We’re guessing it’s the Mi4.
Amazon Japan leaks iPhone 6 info
Oops! Amazon did it again – it’s leaked product information before they’ve even been announced to exist by their vendors. This time, Amazon Japan let slip information about the model, dimensions, and availability of the upcoming iPhone 6. And by the looks of it, it seems to be thinner, and pricier.
Samsung’s got a VR Gear headset in the works
We’ve known that Samsung could possibly be working on its own VR Gear headset for a while now, but what we didn’t know was how it was going to look like. Not anymore, if you believe photographic evidence from SamMobile. We’re waiting eagerly for the upcoming IFA 2014, where the “Gear VR” is expected to debut.
Just think, and Google Glass does it for you
What seems like something out of a science fiction movie is now real – a new app for Google Glass, named MindRDR, lets Google Glass put some of your thoughts into action (talk about psychic photography). Of course, it requires you to put on another piece of tech on your head to measure the brainwaves before “commanding” Google Glass to execute it.
This is LG’s super-flexible display
LG’s given us a sneak peek into the future of TVs by unveiling an 18-in OLED panel bendy enough to be rolled like a poster. Why? We presume it’s because everyone dreams of lugging their TVs around with them, and this might be the best way to do it. On the bright side, you probably won’t have to get separate TVs for every room in your house anymore.
