  • Nintendo 2DS: dropping one dimension, adding one more choice (hands-on)

    Nintendo 2DS dropping one dimension, adding one more choice handson

    Nintendo caught us all by surprise when it announced its — all too literally named — 2DS handheld last week. But are we really surprised? For a company that found its last success with the “family” experience, and loves to create products in families of their own, it’s perhaps surprising that it didn’t create a more affordable, more accessible handheld sooner. Either way, it’s here now, and will be reaching shelves by October 12th — just in time to make those Christmas lists. Our list is getting pretty full already though, so we spent a little time with it to see if it could make the cut.%Gallery-slideshow79312%

  • Nymi bracelet uses biometric heart data to unlock digital and physical doors (video)

    Bionym's Nymi bracelet authenticates through a heartbeat

    Unlike faces and fingerprints, a heart’s electrical activity is difficult to fake — it’s a unique and potentially ideal security tool. Bionym is taking advantage of this trustworthiness in its upcoming Nymi bracelet. The wristwear authenticates users through a combination of electrocardiograms and Bluetooth proximity detection; if Nymi recognizes your heart rhythm, it automatically logs you into nearby devices. The bracelet also recognizes gesture commands, and a future developer kit should extend the gadget’s usefulness beyond basic security for PCs and smartphones. It could unlock doors or make retail payments, for example. Nymi won’t ship until early 2014, but it’s already available for pre-order at a $79 early bird price.
