Azio Vision Keyboard Wireless Edition review: This model is easy on the eyes and hands

PCWorld

Azio's 60 Vision Keyboard Wireless Edition (currently 54.99 on Amazon) helps the vision-challenged with a backlit keyboard sporting large-print letters on the keys. The sturdy design also has a comfortable wrist rest and snap-out legs. Depending on my mood (or my deadline), I often pound the keys, and the Vision Wireless handled my heavy-handedness with aplomb. The individual keys felt pleasantly poofy--a floating-like sensation under the pads of my fingers as I typed. The travel on the keys has just the right amount of depth to deliver a satisfying clickety-clack.


The Rolls-Royce Vision 100 concept is completely, irredeemably ridiculous

#artificialintelligence

In introducing the car, Rolls-Royce referred to it as "her," and with good reason. The Spirit of Ecstasy figurine that sits proudly at the front of the car has also been personified in the form of an AI called Eleanor inside the car. "She's your ethereal concierge," says Rolls-Royce, and she handles most things around the vehicle in response to your voice commands. Like any good AI, she will learn about you over time, remembering your preferred routes, restaurants, and apparently even your taste in art. The Vision 100 is a fully autonomous, zero-emissions vehicle, and it serves to underline BMW's expressed belief that electric drive is the future.


Sony's UBP-X700 Now Plays Dolby Vision 4K Blu-rays Into Sony TVs - But It's All A Bit Of A Mess

Forbes - Tech

At long last, people who own Dolby Vision-capable Sony TVs can use them to watch Dolby Vision from 4K Blu-ray discs. This is because Sony has finally'joined up' its Dolby Vision story by upgrading (in the US, Canada and Europe) one of its 4K Blu-ray players - the UBP-X700 - to support Dolby Vision playback on compatible Sony TVs. The upgraded X700 is not, of course, the only 4K Blu-ray player to support Dolby Vision playback. Oppo's 203 and 205 decks have offered it for months, for instance. However, the X700's Dolby Vision update is the first to provide the elusive extra'magic sauce' firmware that unlocks Dolby Vision 4K Blu-ray playback on Sony TVs that carry the brand's X1 Extreme processor.


Israeli startup wins $7m investment for retail vision platform

#artificialintelligence

Israeli computer vision startup, Trigo Vision, has won $7 million in a seed funding round by UK-Israel based Hetz Ventures and Vertex Ventures Israel. Trigo Vision's vision platform is designed for the retail market. It combines a network of ceiling-based cameras with machine vision algorithms to identify customers' shopping items, similar in principle to the Amazon Go store in Seattle, which doesn't have a checkout because it can track what customers put in their shopping basket. The funding will be used to grow the company's core R&D team and build new applications for its technology. 'The founding team has managed to assemble a world-class R&D team to tackle an enormous user experience problem in retail,' commented Yanai Oron, general partner at Vertex Ventures.
