One of the most interesting features in Ice Cream Sandwich is, without a doubt, the new Face Unlock that lets you unlock the phone using your face and the front-facing camera. Before we go any further, please read the following bullet points, as I'd like to clear a few things up:

  • The question of whether Face Unlock can be duped by a photo was raised by many almost immediately after the feature was announced, to which Google responded with "give us some credit".

Adding to the list of awesome Android-related gadgetry, Tomer Weller and Yossi Sorin have created Paradroid, a self-navigating skydiving robot powered by an attached Android handset.

Beginning as a project for Google Developer's day ADK challenge, Paradroid is still a work in progress. That being said, it already seems to have some impressive capabilities, functioning from heights of over 1000ft., parachuting safely to the ground, and navigating to a predetermined location, all while sending back handy status reports.

How many task managers that keep track of To-Do items can we need on Android? The creators of Taskos, which in itself is a task list manager, thought we were in such dire need for one more that they had to one-up even themselves and create Any.DO.

Any.DO has a completely new interface that is so slick that you will find yourself wondering whether you're running an Android app at all.

Tegra3_Chip

There's no doubt that the Tegra 3 is going to be the reigning champ of mobile chips when it's released -- its quad-core setup and brilliant design offers the best of both worlds where performance and battery life are concerned.

For low power tasks, the fifth core, known as the companion core, runs the show; as more powerful processes come into play, the high performance cores activate and deactivate as needed.

If you've been waiting on a new Gangstar game to hit the scene from Gameloft, the time is drawing near. The first trailer for Gangstar Rio: City of Saints hit YouTube today, full of all sorts of non-saintly stuff. It looks like a nasty, violence filled shoot-em-up, in true GTA fashion. Check it.

There's no word on City of Saints will be released, but it looks like it should be landing any day now.

So, imagine this: you're walking through the mall, heading to the food court to munch on whatever greasy, artery clogging slop you can find. You sit down, pull out your mobile, tap it on the table, order your food, pay, and wait for your phone to notify you that your meal is ready. No lines, no feeling rushed because you have no idea what you want -- just you and your phone.

Update: Unfortunately, Verizon pulled the ads. When we asked them why, their official response was: "The ads were pulled because some of the professional service agreements have expired."

Bummer.

It's no secret that Verizon's LTE network is the fastest and largest mobile data network in the U.S. (can't say it's the most reliable though), but to make sure every Tom, Dick, and Harry knows about this, the company has rolled out a batch of LTE commercials featuring slogans such as "Instant Results," "Just Like That," "What You Want.

While I was tapping away on my laptop trying to keep up with the Ice Cream Sandwich event earlier today, the desktop machine was happily recording it for future reference. This should hold us over until Google posts the official HD version - the video is about 1 hours long, but almost every minute of it is totally worth it (at least once you get to the juicy ICS bits):

Update: The official HD video has now been posted:

Anticipating the fact that some folks prefer information presented to them visually, Google just dropped the first official promo video for the new Galaxy Nexus, powered by Ice Cream Sandwich. Tron-style racing and a rundown of new ICS features are practically begging you to click that Play button below:

In the words of the top YouTube comment: "Shut up and take my money, Google!"
