The Pokémon Go Fest, which marked the game’s first anniversary turned out to be an absolute disaster. The fest was supposed to be a huge celebration. Players were promised rare Pokémons, rewards, training tips but were served with nothing but disappointment.
The event seemed to be a magnet for screw-ups. The attendees waited for hours to play, only to be told that the games are not working. The game servers quit working (due to the congested network) and the company had no backup plan. Maybe Niantic wasn’t prepared for neither the server load nor the network congestion.
The fest fiasco obviously didn’t go down well with the event attendees. Few of the [...]

KFC seems to have recognised that the tech industry has a huge potential for fan-engagement and innovation can get you the right publicity.

But, if fried chicken and FIFA 17 are your thing, then look no further than the KFC Gamer’s Box 2.0. If you are a sucker for limited edition stuff then this [...]
Japanese watch-making giant Seiko and Tokyo-based retailer Nano Universe are coming together to sell a limited bunch of Chariot series watches. Back in 1984, Steve Jobs was seen sporting the watch design in his portrait by Norman Seeff. The portrait later went on to become the cover of the Times Magazine.
The shot is one of the most iconic photographs of Jobs. Steve Jobs, who is the former Apple Inc. co-founder, is seen sitting with his legs crossed and the Macintosh on his lap, at his Woodside, California house.
After Jobs’ death, his estate sold the original watch owned by him for $42,500 in February last year. Seiko has now decided to [...]

We have many companies already making these cleaners, iRobot was one of the first Robo-vac makers with the Roomba, they even have a wet washer called the Scooba. We even have some household brands like LG and Samsung manufacturing them and an brand easily available in India by the name of Milagrow also makes and sells these autonomous vacuum cleaners. However, the one thing in common for these lean and autonomous cleaning machines is the price. They usually cost upwards of $400 for a decent vacuum cleaner. Xiaomi wants to change this and they have launched the new Mi Robot Vacuum.
Just like Xiaomi phones, Mi Robot Vacuum cleaners are loaded with specs, for starters you [...]
India’s festival of color and water is just around the corner. While we would seriously advocate that you do not waste water and play a dry Holi. For those still willing to go all out, the smartphone is one of the biggest victims of an accident on and around the festival of Holi.
Imagine your phone gets struck by a water and color filled balloon, and moments later it is time to go hunting for a new one.
While every smartphone should now feature some kind of waterproofing, many companies do not agree with us. So if you plan on playing Rambo on Holi try the following smartphones guaranteed to last through the water filled festival. Zip lock bags and plastic wrapped [...]
At the recent New York Toy Fair, Mattel unveiled the ThinkMaker, a ’70s toy maker that uses modern 3D printing technology. But the new ThinkMaker is a lot more than an ordinary toy maker that could mould bug-like creatures or Creepy Crawlers as they were popularly called.
The new 3D Printing ThingMaker can design complex objects like figurines, jewellery and accessories using the ThingMaker Design app, which Mattel developed together with Autodesk. The toy maker will start shipping this fall and comes at a very affordable price of $300.
There are so many reasons to love Mattel’s new ThinkMaker. At $300, the toy maker is not only cheap, but it can [...]

It is only natural that this fusion gets a formal acknowledgement as Met Gala 2016 gears itself to bring technology and fashion together aptly naming its fashion event this year -“Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology”.
When we say technology one of the first few names to pop up in our heads includes Apple. Consequently, it’s no big surprise the Cupertino based tech giant is partners with the Costume Institute for the this year’s Met Gala fashion event.
