Gigamon Remakes Itself For Cloud

Gigamon Remakes Itself For Cloud
Justin Warren Justin Warren (left) and Blue Cow (right) visit Gigamon in Santa Clara, 28 July 2017 Gigamon are best known for building a range of network monitoring products designed to work with physical network devices. That presents a challenge when the world starts to use networking devices that are less and less physical and more just fancy software running in the nebulously defined 'cloud'. In the traditional, physical networking world, network traffic can …

A DIY photo booth is exactly what you need for your next party

A DIY photo booth is exactly what you need for your next party
In my personal experience, I’ve found that parties with photo booths are more fun than parties without photo booths. But if you’re hosting a big event or wedding, you’ll know that actually renting a company to come set up a booth can get really expensive. But why pay someone to come set up a booth and run it for you when you can just put a really great one together yourself? Here’s how to do it. Supplies A Raspberry Pi 3, or an older Raspberry Pi with a Wi-Fi adapter. A monitor with HDMI-in…

These robots have danced their way to a Guinness World Record

These robots have danced their way to a Guinness World Record
If you thought you were bad at dancing, get ready to feel worse, because 1,069 robots have broken a Guinness World Record set just last year for the "most robots dancing simultaneously" in China. The robots are all named Dobi and are made by Chinese company WL Intelligent Technology. Walking, talking, and doing Tai Chi are some of their abilities on top of the synchronized dancing. WL Tech said the team organized the dance off as a way to display the technology of their robots, which were pro…

Sony’s Xperia XZ Premium is unworthy of its name

Sony’s Xperia XZ Premium is unworthy of its name
What defines a premium product? To my mind, it’s the added benefit or advantage of something that you wouldn’t be able to obtain at a lower price. An example might be the $4,000 Focal Utopia headphones with beryllium drivers, whose sound is hard to rival and unobtainable without that extremely rigid material. Or perhaps it’s Coach’s leather briefcases, which justify their price by aging gracefully and gorgeously. Or it could be the expert craftsmanship of Canon’s universally acclaimed L lense…

Here come the next generation of Bluetooth wallet trackers

Here come the next generation of Bluetooth wallet trackers
Chipolo just announced the Chipolo Card for wallets, calling it the "world’s thinnest Bluetooth tracker." A bold claim considering the TrackR Wallet 2.0, announced in January, is 0.15-mm thinner. Not that it really matters since neither device is shipping yet. For the most part, Bluetooth trackers from companies like Chipolo, TrackR, Tile, and others have become so small that they're pretty much attach-and-forget. Trackers on lost items emit an audible alarm from their on-board speakers when …

Amazon’s new algorithm designs clothing by analyzing a bunch of pictures

Amazon’s new algorithm designs clothing by analyzing a bunch of pictures
Amazon has developed an algorithm that can design clothing by analyzing a bunch of images to copy the style and then apply it to new items generated from scratch, reports MIT. Amazon is focussing heavily on fashion, and has previously said it’s looking to become “the best place to buy fashion online,” so designing its own pieces pinned to current trends seems like a logical move. The algorithm was developed by Amazon Lab 126, the company’s research and development hub and uses a tool called …

LG’s 4K Blu-ray player supports Dolby Vision for better HDR

LG’s 4K Blu-ray player supports Dolby Vision for better HDR
LG has launched its UP970 Ultra HD Blu-ray Disk Player with HDR compatibility that was first previewed at CES earlier this year. The player supports Dolby Vision and HDR10 playback — both of which are the primary competing standards for HDR content. Of course, your TV will have to support Dolby Vision HDR to benefit, which LG and others will happily sell to you. Dolby Vision claims to have greater brightness and contrast, and richer colors, while HDR10 content is the open standard and default…

A patent filing, spotted by WalkingCat, reveals an accessory that looks like wand and has buttons, a trigger, and a finger guard. It looks s…
