There seems to be a trend among phone manufacturers of going back to the simple cellphones of the late 1990s/early 2000s. Nokia - one of the leading names in 'dumb phone' tech of yesteryear - is bringing back one of their iconic models, the 8810. Best known as being the phone that Neo uses in the 1999 hit The Matrix, the 'banana phone' is aimed at people looking to ditch the endless clutters and distractions of modern apps for a simple phone that can just call and text. The 8810 will have a battery that can last 25 days, work on 4G networks and even include the classic hit Snake for when you need to look busy out in public. They plan to start shipping later this year.
GuardBot Surveillance Robot
Although this product is still in early stages, the Guardbot Surveillance Robot gives users a glimpse at what the future world of mobile surveillance might look like. This robot is capable of traversing any terrain, whether its the rugged mountains, water, the countryside, or any urban or city environment. Sizes range from 5 inches to 7 feet in diameter and a motorized pendulum can move the unit forward and back all while allowing a full 360 degree turning radius. The Guardbot is controlled via either satellites or remote control and packs a whopping 25 hour run capacity per charge. Two cameras, microphones and a GPS make this a major step for remote surveillance. We expect to see this robot popping up in military testing videos and news stories in the near future.
