Android-based touchscreen router does home automation ·  LinuxGizmos.com

And kickstarter did it again: an Android based quadcore device which controls the home automation and is a router. It even connects to Nest, the connected thermostat recently acquired by Google. It embeds an Exynos SoC from Samsung. Actually the hardware platform is probably over-dimensioned for what it actually does. Yet it comes in the form factor of a tablet which means that for once the User Interface is user friendly.

As we could expect from such a sexy product, the pre-orders are higher than what was initially requested.

Toyota FV2 Concept Car at CES 2014

This one person car from Toyota is electrical. It is designed to bind the driver with the vehicle.

You can get in through an opening roof. This is almost sci-fi.
