A scary new world of holographic companions. It’s here now.

Before I say anything, watch this video. Soak it in. Look at the grin on the face of the guy.. It’s more than a little creepy, however this virtual lady seems to be proving quite popular. They call it / her, the “Gatebox” in the PR email. “She’ll …

Honor 10 – Review

This is a confusing one, but it’s confusing in a good way. The price of this, and possibly the brand, should scream “mid-range” at you. It really should. We’re kinda hard-wired to see phones costing less than £400 as perhaps sub-standard. Perhaps it’s because those really high-end, top-of-the-range …

Honor 10 Flagship – The Launch

In all honesty we just couldn’t afford the train fare to London for this one as we’re prioritising the costs of our servers (we’re running a donation drive right now if you can help) and we’re properly gutted about it. Why? Well, Honor have been rocking the smartphone …

The LG G7 ThinQ is finally launched

#MWC18 – The key Samsung Galaxy S9 features

When this handset arrives in store and sits next to the existing Galaxy S8, if we’re honest, you won’t be able to see a huge amount of difference. In all honesty, like when the iPhone 8 replaced the iPhone 7, that’s no bad thing. The design is proven, …

#MWC18 – Is it the LG G7? No, but we do get an LG V30S

One thing we won’t be seeing here in Barcelona (and yes, I’ve made it!) is the all-new LG G7. I’ve owned quite a few LG handsets – the G6 is a big favourite of mine and I held onto the LG G4 for absolutely ages. Loved that. The …

(Update) Welcome your new look. The Honor View 10

Honor have today launched their now familiar “well priced but still very, very good” handset in the shape of the Honor 7X. However, if you want to spend £449.99 and get some artificial intelligence, have a look at this – the new Honor View 10. It doesn’t look …

Say hello to Samantha, the AI robot that you can make love to.

She comes equipped with artificial intelligence and has a stack of sensors embedded inside too. This new sex robot can also listen to you and will reply back. However, the “human feeling skin”, as ITV presenters Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield comment in the video below, is cold …

Artificial Intelligence is becoming cleverer than you

With intelligent digital assistants invading the home, it’s becoming fairly normal to have a conversation with an Amazon Echo, Siri or Google Now. Believe it or not, they’re becoming more intelligent too. You might not think it, especially when you’re in the middle of an argument with your …

Can you beat the neural network?

This is a nice time-killer, and you don’t even need to worry about getting the app, because there isn’t one. Whether you’ve got an iPhone or Android, just head over to quickdraw.withgoogle.com and draw the object or animal that the website tells you to doodle. It’s a simple …

Voices in your Head? – Sony Launches new Xperia Ear
