Polaroid has announced that it will release a social media and insta-print camera dubbed “Socialmatic” in 2014, a concept that was originally unveiled back in 2012. The Android-based Socialmatic is equipped with a 14 megapixel front-facing and 2 megapixel back-facing camera. The camera’s built-in Wi-Fi allows captured images to be uploaded directly to social media platforms – Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Google+ and more – and the ink-less on-board printer allows for 2×3 sticker prints to be processed on the move. Featuring a retro design and a 4.5-inch touchscreen, the Socialmatic is expected to be released in fall 2014. No word yet on the camera’s price point, although we do know that a pack of 80 heat-activated Zink sheets will cost approximately $30 USD.

At CES 2014, LG announced a new type of wearable technology called Lifeband Touch. The device is described as an advanced, state-of-art fitness, health and communication tracker that uses Bluetooth to connect to the user’s Android or iOS device. Thanks to a number of built-in sensors, the device is able to track your movement and calories burned, as well as measure heart rate with special heart rate headphones that “listen” to blood flow in your ears.
OMG! I'm so excited! Some images just leaked from the new lego set, and guess what is the theme??? The Simpsons!! And it's their house. And it even opens!! We knew that this was coming, but how exciting is this? Check the new photos...
As the one confirmed LEGO Simpsons playset, we knew the LEGO Store-exclusive LEGO The Simpsons house was going to be pretty large–but even I’m surprised by how large it actually is! The 71006 LEGO Simpsons House consists of a fairly grandiose 2523 pieces–a huge number for a LEGO house! I’m not at all convinced that LEGO captured the authentic color of the Simpsons’ house from the cartoon, but otherwise the building looks pretty dead-on accurate.
Six minifigures are included with the Spring 2014 LEGO Simpsons House: a LEGO Homer Simpson Minifigure, a LEGO Marge Simpson Minifigure, a LEGO Bart Simpson Minifigure, a LEGO Lisa Simpsons Minifigure, a LEGO Maggie Simpson Minifigure, and a LEGO Ned Flanders minifigure.
