Motorola's new wearable, the Moto 360, takes smartwatch form factor back in time (har), boasting a seriously eye-catching design and circular watchface. Powered by Google's Android Wear, owners can utilize the power of Now from their wrists. What's more, this isn't the Moto 360's only design. It'll come in a variety of styles once it launches this summer.
Last week at GDC, Sony unveiled Project Morpheus. We got to try out the company's VR headset, destined for the PlayStation 4 -- and yes, it's pretty awesome. Engadget's own Ben Gilbert donned a virtual sword and took the prototype for a spin while we caught the action on camera.
Earlier this week, NSA general counsel Rajesh De stated that companies like Apple or Google are fully aware of its data collection practices due to its "compulsory legal process." Now, the agency may take that claim one step further by releasing its own transparency reports.
Without failing to realize how far VR has come, Peter Molyneux told us at GDC that the tech still leaves him wanting. According to the famed game designer, it's all about innovation, and the latest next-gen tech, like Sony's Project Morpheus, doesn't push the limits.
