Hover Camera is a safe and foldable drone that follows you

Hover Camera is a safe and foldable drone that follows you
engadget.com — The Hover Camera comes in at only 238 grams, which is just below the FAA's limit for mandatory hobbyist drone registration. It's small as well: When the propeller wings are folded, it's about the size of a VHS cassette tape. Once you open it up, you'll see all four propellers with brushless motors, all of which are apparently developed in-house.

Lenovo's ZUK phone puts other Chinese flagships to shame

Lenovo's ZUK phone puts other Chinese flagships to shame
engadget.com — Alas, the Z2 Pro has left out NFC for some reason, but that shouldn't bother mobile payment users in China who are more used to in-app payments, such as AliPay, WeChat, JD and Bestpay. These can all take advantage of the Z2 Pro's front-facing fingerprint reader which apparently tolerates wet fingers, and it also has self-learning ability to increase reading accuracy.

China's LeEco teases its very own autonomous electric car
engadget.com — As an investor of China's car-hailing app Yidao Yongche, LeEco envisions its future LeSEE cars to form a fleet of autonomous taxis, with their front lights indicating their availability using various colors. In the official video, the car has conventional front doors and rear suicide doors, and somehow, the back seats can apparently adapt to the shape of the passengers' bodies -- yep, smells like a concept.

LeEco's three new smartphones ditch the headphone jack
engadget.com — LeEco's three new metallic smartphones share almost identical looks, especially with their squircle fingerprint reader and their HTC-like injection moulded antenna bands on the back, as well as their edge-to-edge glass panel on the front to mimic a borderless screen when switched off.

engadget.com — After it's learned the pattern, the system will notify both the patient and family members or caretakers -- via the hub's flashing light and beeping sound and via the app or SMS -- should the patient fail to log his or her medication.

engadget.com — In fact, thanks to the Snapdragon 617, the Z11 Mini does Cat 6 LTE (up to 300 Mbps downlink), VoLTE, Bluetooth 4.1 and 802.11ac WiFi. In China, it also supports all three major networks to make things easier for local folks.

Of course Huawei is making a Gear VR rival

Of course Huawei is making a Gear VR rival
engadget.com — The Huawei VR headsets work in a similar way as Samsung's counterparts: Just pop the front cover open, then secure the phone (with the VR app running, of course) using the clips inside, and then snap the cover back on. Likewise, they have a touch panel, a back button and volume keys on the right for interfacing with the app.

engadget.com — When put together, the Move It assembly -- available in either red on black (pictured) or black on white -- comes in at about 40cm tall, 38cm wide and 21cm deep -- about the same footprint as one or two pairs of dumbbells.

Meizu's 10-core phone gets a 10-LED camera flash

Meizu's 10-core phone gets a 10-LED camera flash
engadget.com — Despite the smaller 2,560 mAh battery (the Pro 5 had 3,050 mAh), it's somewhat compensated by the 24W rapid charging feature that takes just one hour to go from zero to 100 percent. Just to ease our minds, Meizu added that the appropriate thermal and short-circuit protection mechanisms are all there.

Drone racing is about to get cheaper and easier

Drone racing is about to get cheaper and easier
engadget.com — The new Atom comes in at just 122mm wide, and thanks to its durable carbon fiber frame plus polycarbonate shell, it only weighs 5 ounces or about 142 grams -- well below the the FAA's 250-gram threshold for mandatory registration. For the same reasons, this tiny drone comes with greater crash resistanance as well as maneuverability than its bigger counterparts.
