Competition for apple

  1. 1. From within our pool of technology, today we are going to pull out a few items that might be on your wishlist and that we think Apple might not be so pleased about: Amazon Fire TV, Amazon Fire tablet, a case that will add touch functions to the back of iPhones and iPads, and an underwater drone. What’s this all about?
  2. 2. Amazon Fire TV If you were not already aware, Amazon has plans in the making to take over your TV and Fire TV appears to be very strong competitor against Apple TV. Amazon Fire TV is a digital media player and micro console developed (obviously) by Amazon. It is a small network appliance and entertainment device designed to stream digital video and audio to your HD TV. Fire TV also allows users to play video games with the included remote, via a mobile app, or with an optional game controller. The device features 2GB of RAM, MIMO dual band Wi-Fi, and a Bluetooth remote control with a microphone for voice search. Coming in at £79.99 it is slightly more costly than the Apple TV (£59) but Amazon is making a bold statement with its latest upgrade to their Fire devices.
  3. 3. Amazon Fire Tablet Amazon’s Fire Tablets are more an entry point to purchasing content and shopping for physical goods than devices for productivity and quality photography. They are all about consumption. Amazon plan to get their tablets into the hands of as many people as they can by offering a new introductory tablet for just £79.99, a smart move in my opinion. It’s promised to perform very decently with a quad-core processor. There is only 8GB of storage, however, like the Amazon Fire TV; it is expandable with a microSD card onto which you can download movies and TV series from Amazon Prime for offline viewing.
  4. 4. Handycase This new case for Apple iPad and iPhone, effectively makes your device see through and controllable from behind. The case will allow users the capability to tap and swipe their mobile device from the rear via an attached case by magically seeing their hands through the screen. “The Handycase was developed as a useful, ergonomic tool to access multiple touch points on a mobile device from the back panel. The smart case allows for one or two handed interaction with games, maps and other next generation applications,” explains one of the creators of the device. The case comes in various sizes to support iPad, iPhone and some Android devices that can connect via Bluetooth LE.
  5. 5. OpenRov Trident The OpenRov Trident is a submersible that can help people explore the ocean life and learn about what’s hanging out under the docks in your hometown’s seafront. Users have the option to view what the camera sees through a virtual reality headset. The OpenRov Trident is essentially snorkelling for the lazy ones, it’s also useful for those that are too afraid of what lies beneath the surface so don’t want to physically dive down there themselves. At the very least, it should prove a killer educational experience.
