Dexmo exoskeleton glove lets you touch and feel in VR — Dexta Robotics, the Chinese startup behind Dexmo, has spent the last two years coming up with over 20 prototypes before getting to the current version. Unfortunately for us mere mortals, it'll be a while before we can get our hands on this device.

China's elevated bus demoed with cars driving underneath — Based on the photos, the TEB runs on sixteen tired wheels and is guided by eight pairs of rail wheels. It's supposed to reach 40 to 50 km/h (about 25 to 31 mph), but the experimental electric vehicle moved cautiously slow on its disappointingly short 300-meter demo track yesterday.

Multitouch is about to get more advanced thanks to Qeexo — Without giving away his secret sauce, Qeexo CEO Sang Won Lee explained that TouchTools uses just multitouch data plus machine learning to tell the pose of one's hands. "It's not just the number of fingers on the screen; just those data will not be enough to decide which tool to use.

Xiaomi's Redmi Pro does OLED and dual camera on a budget — The Redmi Pro comes in a gold- or silver-colored brushed metallic unibody -- a real bonus at this price point -- and packs a 5.5-inch 1080p OLED display (with full NTSC gamut), a fingerprint reader plus a 5-megapixel selfie camera on the front side.

Xiaomi's first laptop is the $750 Mi Notebook Air — Don't be misled by that seemingly too-good-to-be-true price tag. The 13.3-inch model comes in at just 14.8mm thick and 1.28kg heavy, which is pretty good given that you get an Intel Core i5-6200U processor (up to 2.7GHz) plus an NVIDIA GeForce 940MX GPU (with 1GB GDDR5 RAM).

Ben Heck powers on the Nintendo PlayStation's CD drive — It was a nice "wow" moment for everyone, but the ticking noise suggested that the CD drive was struggling to move its optical head, plus the screen was flickering. Ben figured this was to do with a power glitch caused by three leaky electrolytic capacitors on the logic board, so he replaced those with modern ones, and boom!

ASUS ZenFone 3 Deluxe gets first dibs on Snapdragon 821 chip — The metallic ZenFone 3 Deluxe comes in three flavors, with its top model offering pretty much all the best possible specs to date: 6GB of DDR4 RAM plus 256GB of UFS 2.0 internal storage (expandable by up to 128GB via microSD using the second SIM slot).

Rimowa's electronic luggage tag is the future of traveling — Rimowa's electronic tag is essentially an E Ink display with the same width as a standard paper luggage tag (it already has the green stripe required for all flights departing from European airports), and it uses Bluetooth radio to grab data from either Rimowa's dedicated app or supported airline apps -- right now these are only available on iOS.

Samsung's world-first UFS memory cards are crazy fast — More importantly, Samsung claims that its upcoming 256GB card is rated with a random read rate of 40,000 IOPS, which is 20 times higher than that of a typical microSD card; and likewise, it has a random write rate of 35,000 IOPS, which is a whopping 350 times higher.

iPhone 7 will get a larger camera, according to spy shot — Another week, another iPhone 7 leak. (Hey, it rhymes!) Following the set of components allegedly showing dual-SIM support, up to 256GB of storage and a 3.5mm headphone jack on the next iPhone, Chinese repair shop Rock Fix is back with a photo of what it claims to be the 4.7-inch iPhone 7's rear casing.
