Sony’s balloon photo app, now out on beta for Android

There are a lot of photo apps out there that let you edit, put captions and other designs on top of pictures you've recently taken or those that are already on your camera roll. But there are only a few out there that lets you do something as unique as Sony's Voice Balloon photo app, which lets you add thought balloons to your photos, using your smartphone's voice recognition as the basis for the dialogue you can add to your picture. Now they're releasing a new similar app in beta called balloon photo.

MasterCard developing new payment system that requires facial recognition

Biometrics are useful and productive. We’ve always imagined a future where you’d only need your face to be scanned to do some important transactions like paying the bills. We don’t know if this technology can be perfected in time but MasterCard is starting an experiment that aims to approve online purchases and payments with a facial scan at checkout. Think taking a selfie to pay for something. This is every selfie-addict’s dream come to true because really, it’s much easier to do compared to remembering a password, right?

Dolphin Emulator for Android to take advantage of 64-bit ARM technology

If you haven’t heard of Dolphin Emulator or are not sure of what it is really, we actually wouldn’t be surprised. Dolphin Emulator is a niche crowd type of software – originally an open-source emulator for Nintendo Gamecube and Nintendo Wii games on a Windows platform. Now they’ve been trying to bring the emulator to Android – “try” being the operative word – but the project has floundered so far because of the basic lack of computing power available on Android devices. But there is light at the end of the tunnel.

Sony adds 3 new wireless speakers to its premium audio lineup

To the uninitiated, a wireless speaker is just the same as any wireless speaker. But for audiophiles and those with a discerning ear, each is different, not just in terms of features, but also in watts, how many and what kind of sub speakers are included, digital amplification, etc. And for those who are into these kind of things, Sony is probably one of the better brands available in the market. They are now introducing three new speakers to add to their premium audio lineup.

Solid Explorer File Manager goes Material Design, gets Chromecast support

File manager apps are a dime a dozen but not all of them offer a rich file browsing and cloud management experience.

You can now customize the app with your preferred themes, icons sets, and color schemes.

Specular Theory creates Terminator Genisys 360-degree video

If you've lost count of how many Terminator movies there have been in the advent of the release of Terminator Genisys, that doesn't really matter. What has gotten our interest is a short film created by the folks over at Specular Theory that is not just any promotional video, but rather a 360-degree virtual reality experience that you can enjoy on your desktop or on mobile devices, but especially with Google Cardboard to get the full-on effect. There is even a cameo by a certain well-known ex-Terminator and ex-California governor.

Crush all those caravans in this new Top Gear action game

Here’s another action game that will give you that adrenaline rush--Top Gear: Caravan Crush. The fact that it’s an official BBC Top Gear game makes it worthy of our attention.
