Navdy HUD for your windscreen

woman_driving_sideHere’s something you don’t see everyday. A midway convergence of you in car Satnav and Google Glass. Navdy is a piece of hardware that sits atop of your steering column and projects a head up display (HUD) onto you windscreen if assist with relevant drivers information. We have see it in the movies, The Living Daylights in particular springs to mind however I am certain Navdy are not exploring a laser guided missile system.

The box looks cute, if a little tacky and will become a bit of a security risk if left in the car however, as a first generation device this could be a fun and handy addition for the road warrior. The HUD sits at an impressive 5.1″ wide and it fully transparent. A high quality projector displays an image on the screen and an IR camera makes for touchless gesture control. The Navdy uses an accelerometer, e-compass, ambient light sensor to assist in navigating you around alongside an internal speaker and microphone with noise canceling DSP for interaction. The Navdy runs on a Dual core processor and manages the latest Android 4.4 operating system.

So if you are excited by the offerings put forward by Google and Apple for in car systems but are not interested in actually changing your car solely for that reason then the Navdy may provide a distraction as the market is established.  The Navdy is currently available for pre-order at $299, down from $499 and ships early 2015.

In-App Purchases do not a free game make

83f43adc59ca108ddac072c327b554b2After many complaints, and in order to abide by laws set up by the European Commision, Google will no longer be labeling games with in-app purchases (IAP) as free. The complaints are due to children charging up their parent’s credit cards, without parents knowledge, from games that were labeled as free, however offer IAP.

As gamers on the Android platform, we are all familiar with how some of these “free” games work. While some can be played in their entirety with the purchases being completely optional, other games have a pay wall, or a pay to win model where the game becomes extremely difficult or tedious to play without spending money.

Google’s plans to prevent children from making IAP and follow laws set up by the European Union goes into effect at the end of September. On the other side of the fence, Apple has yet to give a solid plan on how to deal with the issue on the App Store, but did issue a response concerning the matter after a scolding of sorts from the EU.

Apple takes great pride in leading the industry in parental controls that are incredibly easy to use and help ensure a great experience for parents and children on the App Store. The parental controls in iOS are strong, intuitive and customizable. And over the last year we made sure any app which enables customers to make in-app purchases is clearly marked. We’ve also created a Kids Section on the App Store with even stronger protections to cover apps designed for children younger than 13.

These controls go far beyond the features of others in the industry. But we are always working to strengthen the protections we have in place, and we’re adding great new features with iOS 8, such as Ask to Buy, giving parents even more control over what their kids can buy on the App Store.

Our goal is to continue to provide the best experience for our customers and we will continue to work with the EC member states to respond to their concerns.

NVIDIA Shield Tablet leaked online

nvidia-shield-tablet-leaked-picThere have been many rumours of a NVIDIA Android gaming console over the last few weeks. We don’t have anything new to report on that front, but we do have a solid leak regarding NVIDIA’s upcoming gaming Android tablet from one of the most reliable sources, out pal @evleaks

The NVIDIA Shield Tablet could be one of the most interesting things to happen to Android gaming. In fact, it’s entirely possible there won’t necessarily be an Android gaming console from NVIDIA because, with the proper input/outputs, this could easily become a portable gaming console. We do know that this device is supposed to come with the NVIDIA Tegra K1 SoC or if the newly leaked NVIDIA gaming controller is meant to pair with this device, a likely situation however. 

Either way, Android gaming is only just now evolving to reach a more mainstream gaming audience. This device could be a big step in that direction.
