[Happy Feet] These Smart Shoes From Lenovo Will Tell The World How You Feel If Your Face Isn't Enough

If today has taught us anything, it's that Lenovo doesn't like keeping its feet on the ground.

A couple of years ago, I couldn't talk to anyone about smartphones for two minutes without them shouting in ecstatic delirium, "Have you seen the new iPhone 5?" Of course, they were talking about this concept video, which everyone in their right mind knew was a "concept" for no less obvious reason than the fact that it was titled as such and created by an animation studio. Except hundreds of people around me still believed it was the real deal.

Google Begins Selling Project Tango Tablet Invitation-Free For $512

Back in April, some Project Tango invitees reported that the tablet development kit's price had dropped from $1024 down to the "special price" of $512.
