3DRobotics IRIS+ review: A powerful tool for filmmakers

3DRobotics’ Iris+ made a big splash last year as a powerful drone capable of autonomous flight. Cool, right? All while promising a lengthy flight time, flexible payload capacity and integrated LEDs for “trouble-free directional awareness.” If you’re serious filmmaker who is curious about the aerial possibilities of a drone, the Iris+ offers enough power and features to give your movies a great new perspective.
Equipped with a two-axis gimbal, the Iris+ is a filmmaker’s dream drone. You can program it to fly manually with the included controller, or use the device’s 3PV Follow Me mode, which turns the Iris+ into your own personal camera crew. Just plan your flight route and the drone will do as you wish. “If you can draw it, you can fly it,” 3D Robotics says.
The Iris+ is rated for a flight time of about 16-22 minutes—it just depends on factors like payload (up to 8 pounds), wind conditions and more. That may not seem like a lot, but it should be just enough to get your a nice shot at su…

Huawei Honor 7 Plus leaks with all-metal design and a fingerprint scanner

See full gallery on TechnoBuffalo
Huawei just unveiled the P8 and P8 Max earlier this week, but the Chinese firm may already be moving on to its next new phone. A fresh batch of images recently leaked online and reveal the rumored Honor 7 and Honor 7 Plus.
The flagship Honor 7 appears to feature a sleek metal design with a duo camera setup. Meanwhile, the Honor 7 Plus appears to offer a fingerprint scanner just below its single rear camera. The Plus may also pack a 5.5-inch 1080p display, a Huawei-made Kirin 930 or 935 processor, 3GB of RAM and 16GB of storage.
This is the first we’re hearing about the Honor 7 and Honor 7 Plus, and it’s possible things could change before the device becomes official. After all, it’s only been five months since the Honor 6 Plus made its debut, so it could be a while before these new models arrive. Until then we’ll be on the lookout for any more information, and it’s likely details will continue to leak as development on the new phones continues.

My phone is filled with a ridiculous amount of “accidental photos”

See full gallery on TechnoBuffalo
I was looking through my camera roll the other day, when I realized that I take an obscene amount of pictures. Thousands upon thousands, and more pile up every day.
Smartphones have made it easy to mindlessly shoot anything and everything, and that’s a good thing, because it means more people are sharing incredible imagers all the time. It shouldn’t be more complicated than that—just press a button and you’ve created an image. But that ease of use has also lead to a funny—and very unexpected—nuisance.
Have you ever looked through your camera roll and said, “What is that a photo of, and when did I take it?”
I never realized how full my phone was of pictures I don’t recall taking, but I’ve apparently taken a lot. Enough for me to question if my device secretly snaps photos when I’m not paying attention. I was never really aware these “accidental photographs” existed until today; it was like stumbling across images shot by someone else, which is a bit unsett…

Galaxy S6 Edge vs. Nexus 6: Two devices that couldn’t be more different

How keen are you on the Galaxy S6 Edge’s curved display? If that’s something you need in your life, then your mind is pretty much made up about whether or not you’ll buy the device. But while Samsung’s new device is the current belle of the ball, there are still some other very good Android phones on the market. Among them is the humungous Nexus 6. You haven’t forgotten about that device, have you?
Samsung’s propensity to slather Android in software makeup has been well documented, and while the Galaxy S6 Edge comes with plenty of bloat, TouchWiz has been dialed back considerably in its newest iteration, which is a big deal. It still isn’t the prettiest skin on the market, but it’s an improvement, and in some instances it’s better than stock Android.
On that note, the Nexus 6 offers Android exactly how Google intended, which is to say without any fluff or unnecessary additions. To that end, it receives the newest and latest updates, while a lot of big flagships usually take months to re…

Amazon Prime: Here are the movies and TV shows being added in May

Amazon Prime might not be the first place you turn to for streaming content, but it’s one of the more well-rounded services out there. Not only can you stream movies and TV shows, but it offers plenty of content that you can rent—and a lot of great stuff is being added next month (I can’t believe it’s almost May already).
Amazon emailed to tell us that plenty of great stuff is coming to Prime next month, and it looks like there’s something for everyone. While I’m excited to stream films like Men In Black II and The Professional, I’m actually more looking forward to seeing films like Kingsman: The Secret Service (great flick) and Jupiter Ascending (haven’t seen it) added to the service’s library. Of course, you won’t be able to rent them right off the bat—there’s always a predetermined period where films are only up for purchase, and like a month later they’re made available to rent.
I’m guessing a lot of these movies and TV shows (aside from the movies you can purchase) will be added to…

NASA finds evidence of water just below the surface of Mars

The surface of Mars might not look like the most inviting landscape, but it’s apparently a completely different picture underneath. New evidence found by NASA’s Curiosity rover suggests the Martian planet may have liquid water below its exterior.
Curiosity has stumbled across a bevy of evidence suggesting water exists on the Red Planet, and scientists have long believed Mars was once covered in a huge, deep ocean. It just shows that you can’t exactly judge a book by its cover.
The breakthrough came when Curiosity discovered the substance calcium perchlorate in a soil sample. As Popular Science notes, the discovery is significant due to “perchlorate’s relationship with water.”

Calcium perchlorate can absorb water vapor from the atmosphere given the right conditions. And when it’s mixed with H20, the compound lowers the freezing point of water, allowing it to exist in liquid form at very low temperatures. In this liquid state, the water is considered a brine—an extremely salty solution.

Google rolling out Chrome OS update now

See full gallery on TechnoBuffalo
Google announced that it is pushing out a big software update (build 42.0.2311.87) to Chrome OS computers that will add several new features.
One of the big new features worth noting is the addition of voice search and Google Now integration right into the Chrome OS launcher, which means Google’s smart engine with information on weather, traffic, sports scores and more is now just a glance away. Other features include an updated calendar app, support for password protected ZIP files, a Material Design update to the files app and various bug and security fixes.
You should notice a system update notification on your Chrome OS-powered computer alerting you to apply the update, after which you’ll just need to restart the computer to see the changes.
