Lexus’ real hoverboard finally has a release date – but don’t get too excited

The Lexus Slide hoverboard shown off in a teaser ad not long ago turned plenty of heads. It was meant to be more of a publicity stunt than a real product, at least according to what Lexus said, but the hoverboard is actually real and it’s coming sooner than you think.

But don’t get too excited about it just yet. More →

iPad mini 4 and iPad Air 3 details finally revealed in new report

iPad mini 4 and iPad Air 3 details finally revealed in new report

As iPhone sales continue to impress, iPad sales continue to plummet. During Apple’s most recent earnings report, it was disclosed that year over year, iPad sales fell by 18%. What’s more, revenue from iPad-related sales dropped by 23%.

Nonetheless, Apple remains committed to the tablet space, with Tim Cook stating as recently as April that Apple will continue to invest in the iPad product pipeline. Cook also said that he “strongly predicts” that iPad sales will pick up in the future.

So with fall right around the corner, we’ll likely be seeing an iPad refresh sometime in the next three months or so. To that end, a recent report from the Japanese-language Macotakara blog relays a few tidbits about what we can expect to see when Apple revamps its iPad lineup later this year.

Intel Skylake specs leak; Expect new laptops with 41% faster graphics and insane battery life

After a number of delays, it finally appears that Intel’s long-anticipated Skylake processors will be ready for mainstream production later this fall. As a quick refresher, much of the hype surrounding Skylake is due to the fact that Intel’s next-gen processors promise to be not just more powerful than Broadwell, but significantly more power efficient as well.

Watch the military’s new trillion-dollar fighter jet test its cannons for the first time

Watch the military’s new trillion-dollar fighter jet test its cannons for the first time

The F-35 fighter is one expensive military project, but the stealth plane should become a primary weapon for the U.S. and its allies soon. Sure, some recent reports suggested the sophisticated fighter might not be able to beat the plane it’s replacing in a fight. But hey, it’s still fun to watch an official video that shows us one of the F-35’s weapons being tested for the first time. More →

This new tech could lead to gadgets that never need to be charged

This new tech could lead to gadgets that never need to be charged

Following the Apple Watch’s debut, people made a big deal out of the idea that the device’s battery would only last about a day on each charge. Of course, it’s hardly a problem since the Watch isn’t in use while its owner sleeping, but the fact remains that batteries are still the biggest barrier standing between us and the ideal gadget experience. Every piece of portable electronics we use, from phones and tablets to laptops and cameras, needs to be charged.

As it turns out, however, that might not always be the case. More →

F-35 F-16 Fighter Dogfight Test

A Trillion Dollars Got the Army an F-35 That’s Worse Than the F-16 It Replaces

A Trillion Dollars Got the Army an F-35 That’s Worse Than the F-16 It Replaces

The Army spent more than $1 trillion on the F-35 airplane program, a next-gen fighter that should outclass the F-16 in every way. The stealthy new flagship plane will be used by the U.S. Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps, as well as the militaries of more than a dozen U.S. allies in the future, replacing the F-16. But don’t expect it to perform better than the F-16 that the U.S. Air Force first acquired in the late 1970s, even though it should be superior to the F-16 in every conceivable way. More →

Lexus Hoverboard: How It Works and Why You Won’t See It in Stores Anytime Soon

A few days ago, a short Lexus video went viral on YouTube, as the luxury carmaker apparently created a real hoverboard called Slide. Thanks to the Back to the Future movies, skateboarding fans have been waiting for years for such a product to be created, and it’s no coincidence that Lexus released the Slide promo video this year.

But is it actually a real, functioning device? More →

4K 21.5-inch iMac May Be Coming Sooner Than You Think

It’s been a long while since Apple has issued a substantive update to its 21.5-inch iMac, but newly revealed data strings tucked away in the most recent OS X El Capitan beta suggests that that may change soon.

Originally spotted by 9to5Mac, Mark Gurman reports that the second beta of OS X 10.11, released to developers just this week, references Mac support for a varying number of display resolutions, one of which points to an upcoming 21.5-inch iMac with a 4K display.

Google’s Advanced Technology And Projects (ATAP) group is easily one of the most exciting divisions we know about at Google. The teams there are working on nothing short of shaping our future, and some of the technologies they’re developing seem like they are straight out of a science fiction movie. In fact, some of them are straight out of a science fiction movie.

Earlier this month at the annual Google I/O conference, the company showed off a number of exciting ATAP projects currently in development, and we discussed a few of the most exciting ones in our earlier coverage (you really have to check it out).

One of them in particular deserves to be revisited, however, because it really is mind-blowing. More →
