Huami and Studio take on Peloton with the Amazfit HomeStudio treadmill

Chinese wearable company Huami and fitness startup Studio are teaming up to build a connected treadmill, which they unveiled today as part of Huami’s keynote as CES. The most notable feature of the Amazfit HomeStudio is its lack of a traditional treadmill front. Instead, you control the device using your smartphone, while content is delivered to a separate, vertically-oriented 43-inch HD screen that the companies are calling the Glass. The Glass kind of looks like a giant phone, and it also i...

The OnePlus Concept One and its innovative design is the company’s biggest limelight moment

In the 6 years (and one month) of its existence, OnePlus has cultivated a reputation of being an indie brand that could make good flagship smartphones without the flagship price tag. Honestly, that’s a great way to cultivate a reputation, and it’s a hard one to shake off, considering your most loyal fanbase comprises the very antithesis of Apple’s fanbase… tech-loving nerds who hate the premium price tag. (And OnePlus has an extremely strong fanbase)I talk about shaking off this reputation bec...

Looking Glass is targeting enterprises and eventually gamers with 8K holographic display

The first thing you need to note when writing about Looking Glass is that it’s incredibly difficult to photograph convincingly. It’s really exactly as you might assume, attempting to capture a 3D image in a 2D photo. The second is that it’s really cool. I don’t want to be the “you gotta see it in person” guy, but, well, you gotta see it in person, guy (or lady ). Lucas called it “bizarrely fascinating” when he looked at the Looking Glass box last year, comparing it to a “fishbowl of pixel...

The Final Chart Topper of the Decade Perfectly Summarizes the Current State of Media

The number one song on the UK singles chart for the last week of 2019 was Ellie Goulding’s River, despite it not being available on Spotify, Apple, Google, or anywhere but Amazon (with one important exception). How the heck did that happen? Chart Watch UK has the story. River was simply a prominent part of just about every “Christmas songs” playlist curated by Amazon themselves, a default choice for everyone muttering “Alexa, play Christmas songs” as they basted the turkey and cursed the sp...
