Can Google's Pixel give the iPhone a run for its money?

Posted in News on 07 October 2016

Google officially became a hardware company on Tuesday. Not only did the company announce new Pixel phones (RIP Nexus), but the company also provided pricing and release dates for Google Home, its Amazon Echo killer, unveiled its mobile VR headset called Daydream View, Google Wi-Fi network extenders and Chromecast Ultra. See? A lot of hardware.


Joining me this week's MashTalk is Deputy Tech Editor Damon Beres and — for the first time — our wonderful tech intern Alex Laird.

Obviously we talked the new Google gadgets and whether or not they pose a threat to the iPhone.


Damon scored us an exclusive look at Giphy Cam 2.5 (the company says it with a hard G, which is wrong, but whatever!). The ultimate time-wasting camera app got updated with new augmented reality "stickers" that you can overlay on top of your face and other objects. They're kind of like Snapchat lenses.

TL;DR: The app is awesome and so is augmented reality!

Apple CEO Tim Cook agrees and thinks AR is the future, not VR. But don't tell Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg that.


Zuckerberg believes VR is the "next computing platform" and with Oculus VR, he intends to make it so. 

He keynoted a good chunk of Oculus Connect 3, where Oculus finally announced how much the Rift's Touch controllers will cost and unveiled the $50 Oculus Earphones that apparently sound as good as $900 earphones. Oculus is also working on a standalone VR headset that will occupy the middle space between mobile VR headsets like the Gear VR and PC-based VR headsets like the Rift.

Is the future just better phones? AR? VR? The only way to find out is by listening to this week's MashTalk.

This Robot May Be Perfect for Lazy People Who Hate Cooking

Posted in News on 07 October 2016

I feel like an anomaly among my fellow New York millennials in that I actually enjoy cooking my own meals. For many people, it's always, "I never have time," which usually means a leftover salad that's now wilted, lunch from the place downstairs or a Seamless delivery.

I take pride in the fact that I can feed myself healthy meals, and it's actually helped in my dating life, too.

And just like that, robots are out to ruin another thing for me.

U.K.-based Moley Robotics today opened a Seedrs crowdfunding campaign seeking about $1.2 million for its robot kitchen, an artificial intelligence-powered device that apparently learns recipes. It has a pair of eery hands and even cleans up! Moley has raised about 41 percent of its goal at the time of this story’s publication.

"Imagine someone like Gordon Ramsay or Jamie Oliver cooking for you in your kitchen. Imagine dishes from Top Michelin Restaurants cooked in front of you to the highest standard, not in your kitchen, but by your kitchen," a Moley press release teases. "Thanks to artificial intelligence, it can mimic the actions of a master chef precisely, bringing a variety of delicious dishes, cooked to the highest of standards in a domestic kitchen."

Get your cold, robot fingers off my spatula!

We all know that robots don't have emotions, and that the most important ingredient in any meal is love. (At least that's what my mother would have me believe. I'm pretty sure her main ingredient is salt.)

But wait, maybe technology isn't so bad after all. Maybe Moley (the company hopes to release a production prototype model in 2018) will be just another tool to give us humans more time to focus on other things, such as building businesses or developing more robots to free us from other tasks we no longer want or need to do.

"Imagine you are buying a flat and the option is to have a regular kitchen or a robotic kitchen -- it is clear which option you would choose," Moley founder Mark Oleynik said in the release. "The success of our prototype makes us very excited. The future is very near."

Wait, this thing does dishes? Sold!

29 September - 31 October 2016
Venue: The Ring Hall
Prepare yourself for a pulse-racing, thrill-chasing night of shocks and surprises at The Nightmare Realm...things are about to get spooky.

Originally established in Kerry, The Nightmare Realm is in its 10th year, and with a cult following in Cork, it's about time The Nightmare Realm expanded to Dublin to scare its inhabitants to the core.

They are to reveal a Halloween scare house in the capital, where you can walk through spine-chilling scenes and meet grotesque, nightmarish characters.

The Nightmare Realm pushes your fears to the limit, often exploring controversial themes in the most twisted and blood-curdling ways. That said, there's no better way to celebrate the spookiest time of the year than with some good, old-fashioned gore.

The Nightmare Realm is not for the faint of heart, so leave the kids at home for this one because it is going to be quite the fright night. Salem will look like a picnic in comparison.
