At a San Francisco launch event GoPro has just revealed the next addition to its line of action cameras, the Hero3. The Hero3 claims specs that are 30 percent smaller and 25 percent lighter than its predecessor, with a resolution that’s up to 4x higher and it has WiFi included. The top of the line Black Edition is capable of capturing video at up to 4K res — if you’re willing to drop the framerate down to 15fps — however thanks to a processor it says is 2x faster, it has also doubled frame rates at lower resolutions. That means 1080p60, 1440p48 and 720p120 modes are supported for your super slow and still-HD capture needs. The Silver Edition maxes out at 11MP stills and 1080p30 video, while the White Edition drops down to 5MP stills.
As far as pricing, the Black Edition is $ 399, the Silver is $ 299 and the White $ 199. Pre-orders are scheduled to start at 12:01AM PT (3:01AM ET), and there’s a handy counter on the GoPro site if you otherwise might forget. Naturally we were in the house and will have hands-on pics and impressions soon, check after the break for a quick list of specs.

The $ 129 Garmin 10 is a new GPS watch by Garmin. Designed as a direct competitor to “grab and go” sport watches from Nike and Polar, the new watch offers training features like “Virtual Pacer” and auto pause settings as well as run/walk break setting for beginning runners.
The onscreen display shows calories burned, speed, distance, and time. It comes a few bright candy colors including green, pink, and black.
Garmin has historically been seen as the creme of the GPS watch world and they had multiple self-contained GPS devices years before competitors. Now, however, upstarts like Nike+ are cutting into the casual watch market. This Sub-$ 200 model is definitely much more interesting for, say, a weekend runner or 5-10K trainee.
The watches will be available this fall.Related Posts:
Professor Keon Jae Lee at the Korean Advanced Institute Of Science And Technology created a solid-state flexible battery that retains is energy level when folded, spindled, and or mildly mutilated. The battery could mean future ereaders and tablets could be paper thin and partially foldable, ushering in interesting new device designs.
These rechargeable lithium-ion batteries are actually printed on a thin film. Applying battery material to rollable displays has been a big problem for the gadget manufacturers thus far but this breakthrough could change the way we think about surfaces, screens, and case materials.
As you can see from the video, the thin film battery can be bent over and over again without reducing voltage output. Professor Lee expects this technology to be part of “next-generation fully flexible electronic systems” but there was no discussion of potential commercial adoption. I guess we’ll just have to wait for our EZ Roll Soft-Style iPods for another few years.Related Posts:
If your Vinci II tablet was working out your children’s arms, more than their minds, then fear not. The makers have just announced the arrival of a new, lighter “M” model. The 5-inch kiddie slate is compatible with the Vinci Curriculum and Kids library apps, and keeps the option for Parent Mode for when Dad wants to check the football scores via the Android-based OS. Designed for users kids on the go, the tablets can also be networked for some little-LAN action. It’s still the same 1.2 GHz A8 Cortex running the show, but if you thought that smaller screen might mean more battery, then sadly you’re mistaken, with the company’s own website estimating just four hours of junior-fun — half that of the larger version. That said, up for pre-order at $ 169 ($ 80 less than the 7-incher) maybe that’s enough to soften the already rubberized blow.

iPad 2 Made Official By Apple, Includes Cameras, HDMI Out Via Dongle To absolutely no one’s surprise, Apple pulled the veil off of its second-generation iPad in a much-publicized press conference earlier today. Speculation had transformed into near-certainty in the weeks leading up to today’s announcement, which comes less than a week after Apple released its latest MacBook Pro update. Many of the previously rumored iPad 2 [...] Read more on MTVRelated Posts:
Sure, it was only about four months ago that Dell released its XPS 14, but unfortunately, those looking to snatch up the Core i5, NVIDIA GeForce 400M-powered laptop today will have a mighty hard time. Some keen-eyed tipsters noticed that Dell’s 14-inch mainstream system was out of stock, and a quick call to one of our friends at Dell confirmed that the smallest version of the series won’t actually be making a comeback. However, that’s not because the system didn’t sell well — Dell maintains that it actually exceeded sales expectations. Considering it was a very aggressively priced rig that doesn’t really surprise us, but why not bring it back? That’s where things get interesting, and we’ll give you Dell’s exact quote on this one…
“With the transition to Sandy Bridge technology, we chose to re-focus our efforts on incorporating this feedback into future thin and light products launching later this year. Stay tuned!”
Yep, it seems like Dell is gearing up to bring some Adamo qualities back in to the XPS brand, which is actually what were told last year when the company killed off the Adamo brand altogether. We’re staying tuned alright!

9to5mac has gotten their hands on what they believe is an iPad 2 display, and it’s… not actually that exciting, but still a great scoop for them. Unfortunately, while the screen is definitely lighter and thinner than the previous one, they have no way of telling whether it is, in fact, the high-resolution display we’ve heard rumored.
More pics this-a-way.
I love these twee little things! And apparently, all you need is two lighters you can get for a buck each at your local corner store/bodega. They’re not drivable, though, unless you’re Tom Thumb. I dub them motortwinkles.
I suppose you could figure out how to make these with a little trial and error (and glue), but I don’t think I could. I can’t deal with little fiddly things like that, they make me angry. I don’t have big fingers or anything, but I just can’t manipulate those tiny gears and such without aggravation.
Lots more pictures here, though none really show the process.
