BATBAND: Sleek, ear-free headphones won’t hurt your ears, now on Kickstarter


Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na...Batband! That's your reaction when you first read the word "Batband", right?! The new concept device isn't exactly very Bruce Wayne but it's something he could use because you know, he's Batman and he can be everything you want him to be.

Batband is a concept pair of headphones that you don't need to put inside your ears. It's "ear-free" because you only need to wear it just above your ears and at the back of your head. Imagine a headband, only it's worn slightly down your head. This piece allows you to listen to your favorite music with a mini "surround sound" experience.

Studio Banana Things, the startup behind Batband, explained how this thing works:

BATBAND works via bone conduction, consisting of transducers that emit sound waves perceived by your "private" inner ear, thus freeing your "social" outer ear.

It sounds like something really "scientific" but it simply means the technology makes use of sound waves transmitted through the bones of your skull. This way, the headphones don't have to be placed inside both ears...just near them.

Fund goal on Kickstarter is only $150,000 but still with 18 days to go before deadline, over $520,000 have been raised from about 2,950 backers. Pledges are important and looks like Studio Banana Things now have a hit even before the estimated April 2016 delivery.

Tech specs of the Batband include Bluetooth connectivity, amplifier, two rechargeable 300mAh batteries, micro USB port, uni-directional microphone, and molded PU foam.

Master your super human skills, control powers in ‘Heroes Reborn: Enigma’

heroes reborn 2

I used to be a fan of the original 'Heroes' series but I'm still not decided if I'll watch 'Heroes Reborn'. I think I'll try the game first and see for myself if the new series is something I'd like to follow again. This isn't an RPG but just a puzzle game which makes it already interesting. As expected, the player is the "HERO" that is called to save the world.

'Heroes Reborn: Enigma' was created by Phosphor Games Studio. Just like the TV series, game stars super humans that are gifted with supernatural powers. In this game, you are Dahlia, imprisoned inside a secret government facility and you're main goal is to survive and finally escape. You have about 30 levels to finish where you can also learn how to master your special skills and super human powers.

Game costs $4.99 and is now ready for download. Several languages are already supported aside from English: Italian, French, German, Spanish, Russian, Brazilian Portuguese, Japanese, Korean, and Simplified Chinese. So yeah, you are free to enjoy this game now in your very own language.

Be prepared to unravel more of your powers because we're sure you can do more than just time shift and practice telekinesis. So what else can you do, hero?

Meizu m2 to be available in India next week


Last July, we told you about the Meizu m2 and how it was a pretty good budget smartphone but that we were sad because by then, it was only available in China. Well, now, it is going to be sold somewhere else. And if you live in South Asia, then this should be good news for you. Meizu’s successor for its m1 (of course) will be available in India by October 12. This is another coup for the country that is considered one of the fastest growing markets for mobile devices.

The specs for the version released in China and the one to be released in India next week are the same. The Meizu m2 has a 5-inch HD screen with a 1280x720 pixel resolution. The screen to body ratio is at 75.6% and comes with the Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box, but also uses the FlyMe OS 4.5, exclusive to Meizu devices. It runs on a 1.3 GHz quad-core 64-bit MediaTek processor with Mali-T720 GPU. It has a 2GB RAM, 16GB internal memory and can be expanded to 128GB through a micro SD card.

It has a 13MP main camera which is pretty good for a budget device, and the 5MP front facing one isn’t too shabby either. It comes in white, grey, blue, and pink colors, so if you’re fond of light or pastel-looking smartphones, then this would be right up your alley. That is, if you live in China or India or if you know anyone there.

The Meizu m2 will be available for Rs 6,999 (around $108) and will start to go on sale by October 12. But if you can’t wait until then, you can register for a sale on Snapdeal which will close by October 11.

Microsoft updates Messaging app with new Skype Messaging feature for Windows 10 Mobile

If you are running Windows 10 Mobile things just got a lot more interesting. The Microsoft Messaging app has been updated from 1.0.12715 to 1.10.7000. What's new? Just the ability to integrate Skype messaging.

Skype Messaging was in an early beta for users but now it looks like the feature is nearly complete as Microsoft has folded it into the official Messaging app for Windows 10 Mobile. This release is also newer than 1.0.12748 release of the Messaging Skype preview version bringing along with it a dark grey background (no longer black) and much improved performance (yes, it seems faster).

Likewise, Skype Video Preview is just called Skype Video now and should install along with the Messaging app update.

LG V10 to have enhanced security through LG Gate 


Locked screen passwords aren’t enough anymore to protect your smartphone or device. You now need a secure platform, a stable cloud service so that all your data won’t be lost or won’t get hacked and if you are a business owner, you also need to make sure your employees aren’t stealing your office data and selling it to the highest bidder. So data and device security is a big business and OEMs are also getting into the game. LG Gate was announced two years ago and now it’s coming to another new device.

The upcoming LG V10 will be getting an added layer of security since it will come with the aforementioned LG Gate. This will nicely complement the fingerprint scanner that the device has, which is actually the first time they will have one in the main LG line (aside from the previously announced Nexus 5X). Although this is more for convenience rather than actual security, the fingerprint sensor will at least work well with the LG Gate, bringing it to “enterprise-level” security.

Actually, LG Gate works more on the enterprise level, as its target market are the companies that have a bring your own device policy. The IT person or the company manager will be able to securely and remotely manage these devices, finding a balance between security for the company and not invading the privacy of its employees.

So the LGV10 will probably be the perfect device to bring at work, since it already has all that safeguards and checks in place. However, this is no guarantee that you won’t get viruses and malware, as that threat isn’t covered yet by security platforms like this. The best protection still is to educate yourself on what are dubious links, sites, downloads, and don’t go to them.

Here’s a look at the Halo 5-themed cars gracing the NASCAR track on Oct. 18

In case you missed it, 343 Industries has teamed up with NASCAR to run two Halo 5: Guardians-themed cars at the Hollywood Casino 400 at Kansas Speedway on October 18. At the time of the announcement, all we had to go on was a teaser, without an actual look at the cars, but Microsoft has now unveiled what the cars will look like, and they are pretty snazzy.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. will be driving the Master Chief-themed car, while Jamie McMurray will be behind the wheel of the car sporting the Spartan Locke theme. Both themes look pretty cool, and it will be fun to see them speeding down the track on October 18.

Hands on with Indivisible, the next game from the makers of Skullgirls

Crowdfunding has brought some games to life over the last few years, including Broken Age, Wasteland 2, and The Fall. And as crowd funding proliferates, developers and publishers continue to try new implementations for it. See Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night and Shenmue III, two games that asked for only a portion of their overall budget, with the rest to be provided by big publishers.

Lab Zero Games (creators of Skullgirls) and 505 Games have just such a project going right on Indiegogo. Indivisible is a Metroidvania-style platformer (similar to Ori and the Blind Forest) mixed with RPG-style battles (like Child of Light) and beautiful hand-drawn art. Indivisible is planned for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Steam. The game's playable prototype is available to everyone right on PC – read on for our detailed impressions!

New iPhones use LTE on any American carrier, despite the way they’re listed

The new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus each come in two models that work on global LTE networks; a third set caters to China’s unique network demands. Some confusion resulted from Apple’s update to its LTE compatibility page, which seemed to imply that the model for AT&T’s network wouldn’t work over LTE on Verizon, T-Mobile, and Sprint’s networks. But that’s not the case, as Apple confirmed for Macworld.

Buy any non-Chinese model, and it will work over LTE (and regular networks) on any American carrier. There’s just one small difference with AT&T involving additional frequencies it has a long-term plan to deploy fully.

The confusion arises in part because the explanation and split among supported networks is somewhat different with the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. With the 2014 phones, the model oriented toward AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon lacked some bands primarily used elsewhere in the world. That’s been resolved in the 6s/6s Plus, and Apple could be clearer about communicating it.

What happened to the Lumia 950 XL’s rumored pen?

For the last few months, I have been talking up the Lumia 950 XL including the smart cover and Surface-style pen. To be clear, this isn't a rumor. I have images from Microsoft with the Lumia 950 XL, Pen, and Cover, and I know for a fact it was something being planned.

So, what happened and is the pen still coming?

Bryan Roper: The piano man who upped Microsoft’s new swag

The Windows 10 Devices event at New York City this week was one of the finest Microsoft events in recent times. Not just the devices that were launched, the demos and the presenters too got a big thumbs up from most people – including the ones on the other side of the fence.

While Panos Panay, Corporate Vice President at Microsoft was the star of the overall presentation, a brief appearance by Bryan Roper for a demo earned several fans. It's not typical to do a stage appearance in a fedora hat with a uniquely sculpted beard and leave the audience with a pretty neat catchphrase – "I can be productive like a boss wherever I am now."

AutoDash takes care of your dashboard so you can drive carefully


It’s already a given fact that you won’t be able to stop yourself from using your smartphone one way or another when you’re driving. You might need the navigation app or use it to control your music or take an important call or check the weather forecast. So app developers and gadget makers are now just trying to come up with solutions to make driving safer while still being able to access your device. Automatic is one of those and now they’re bringing the AutoDash Android app to your dashboard.

AutoDash is actually a custom launcher that will make it easy for you to access the apps that you need before you start the car and maybe even every once in a while as you drive. You can load your map app of choice or even Waze as soon as you start your car. You can also load your music app so that it queues the songs or playlist you want to listen to as you drive.

All you need to do is to install AutoDash onto your smartphone or tablet and then you can choose the apps and widgets that you want to be accessible to you as you drive. For example, you can set auto-navigate to or from home and work. You can also record voice memos, create to-do lists, plus dozen of other music and audio apps that are supported by AutoDash. If you want to make your life even easier, you can integrate IFTTT triggers as well.

While the app will work better if you have an Automatic adapter, it will also work even without one. It’s suggested that you have your gadget on a mount in your car so that you don’t need to hold your device. You can download AutoDash from the Google Play Store for free.

FBI takes down alert on chip credit cards after bankers complain

The FBI posted an online advisory about vulnerabilities with new chip-enabled credit cards, but then removed the message on Friday, less than a day later, following concerns from U.S. bankers that back chip cards.

The original online post was headlined, "New microchip-enabled credit cards may still be vulnerable to exploitation by fraudsters," and was replaced by a "page not found" message as of mid-day Friday.

The FBI didn't offer any comment Friday on what happened to the original post, which raised the need for PIN (personal identification number) security included chip-embedded cards. Use of a PIN instead of a customer's signature to bolster a chip card has become a heated battle between the nation's major retailers, which back a PIN, and powerful credit card companies and the major banks they support, which back signatures.
