For those who haven’t flown a drone before, the Tello is a compact drone that smaller than a Spark and it costs about 1/4 of the price. It’s made by a startup called Ryze Tech and it’s powered by both Intel and DJI. On top of that, the Tello is also programmable, making it an educational tool to get kids started with coding.
With a price tag of less than RM500, it’s rather affordable and it’s now available for pre-order in Malaysia.
The DJI Spark is a great drone for first timers but if you’re looking for something even more affordable, here comes Tello. It’s a drone by a Chinese startup called Ryze that’s powered by DJI and Intel. Not only it’s easy to fly, it even encourages kids to learn how to code.
Alongside their brand new smartphones, Google also finally unveiled their VR headset — Daydream View — which is made out of lots of fabric instead of hard plastic, and will work best with Daydream-ready smartphones.
Oh and did we mention it comes with a super accurate remote too?
In their I/O Google pretty much confirms the earlier rumours that Android N will have greater support for Virtual Reality (VR) than any other Android version. In fact, Google has come up with an entirely new support platform and it’s called Daydream.
Looks like Huawei is looking back to QHD displays on their devices, despite their CEO Richard Yu stating previously that he’s not in favour of the displays. However, they’re now looking into 2K/QHD displays because of VR.
All aboard the VR hype train!
Huawei just unveiled three brand new VR headsets for their flagship P9, P9 Plus and Mate 8 smartphones. They look…oddly familiar if you ask me.
The co-founder of Oculus has just added more fire to the PC vs Mac argument. Based on performance, he places them next to the useless systems of yesteryear – for Rift’s virtual reality headset at least.
Considering that VR is about to go big in the near future, this could cause some concern to the execs at Cupertino. Well, Apple usually enters the race late anyway. And as usual, they’ll find a way to get vendors and developers on board when they think it’s the right time to enter the game.

2016 looks to be the year Virtual Reality hits an all time high with many major companies set to launch their VR headsets this year. There’s Oculus, HTC, Sony and now, the company you’ve all been waiting for: McDonald’s.
…wait a minute.
Going through life alone is never ideal and you’re most likely to enjoy it better when surrounded by friends. LG knows this and wants to metaphorically do the same for its flagship smartphone. Google tried and are still toying around with modular parts through their Project Ara program and there’s even a smartphone case that lets you do the same.
LG believes that we’re still yet to reach “peak smartphone” and whilst moving forward, modules and add-on peripherals are the paths to take. The idea is exciting and being the first to take it on is a big deal but if others follow suit and do better, trouble might loom.

Virtual Reality is going to be the next big thing for 2016. We are seeing more action cams with 360 capabilities and more smartphone players are jumping on the VR experience.
Instead of forking money on fancy Oculus or Samsung Gear VR headset, the next Alcatel OneTouch smartphone will give you a VR experience out of the box, quite literally.
