DJI announces its first hybrid FPV drone and a brand new motion controller

DJI announces its first hybrid FPV drone and a brand new motion controller

Two years ago, DJI released the FPV System, a partial DIY kit including a camera and transmitter to install on a racing drone, plus controller and goggles for the pilot. While there are other options, DJI's provided the best signal and range for a digital system — yes, analog fans, you still have better latency. But now the world's biggest consumer drone company is jumping in with both feet and releasing its first fully in-house FPV drone, designed with plenty of features aimed at both beginners and advanced pilots.

The Realme 8 Pro will feature an all-new 108MP camera system

Realme's recent phones have all gone pretty much the same way — incredible value considering the spec sheet, but slightly underwhelming cameras. That was true of the X2 Pro I reviewed last year and seemed to still be the case when Prasham recently looked at the X7 Pro 5G.

Samsung’s budget-friendly Galaxy Chromebook 2 is now on sale in the US

Debuting as part of Samsung’s CES 2021 product lineup, the Galaxy Chromebook 2 feels more like a prequel to the original notebook and not a real successor. That’s mainly because Samsung had to cut a few too many corners to slash the starting price nearly in half, down to $549 this year. More than a month after its unveiling, the convertible Chromebook finally has a release date for the US: March 1. That means you can get one today.

Qualcomm realizes it has fans, launches new Snapdragon Insiders program

Intel and AMD have done a fairly good job at engaging with their fans over the years, which in turn has helped cultivate interest in their CPUs and other products. The same isn't really true for Qualcomm, which has historically not done much to promote its tech besides... shipping it. That's changing though, as Qualcomm today announced a new 'Snapdragon Insiders' program.

Jetpack Joyride gets a sequel nine years later, soft launch now available

Halfbrick Studios hit gold when it released Jetpack Joyride on iOS back in 2011, so the game was ported to Android in 2012 to capitalize on this success. Sadly it would appear that Halfbrick has been treading water ever since, though it's looking like the studio is going back to its roots with the soft-launch of a long-awaited sequel. This follow-up is called Jetpack Joyride 2: Bullet Rush, and it adds gunplay into the familiar auto-runner gameplay to spice things up. Currently, the game is only available in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, so if you happen to live in one of these regions, you can jump in today to see how this sequel stacks up.
