Novero has just launched a new Bluetooth headset today, dubbed TheFirstOne. It has a rather stylish look with white and silver accents all around. It comes with a car charging cradle, a desk stand, a necklace, a wearable clip, and seven interchangeable ear loops. Features include dual-microphone noise cancellation, three-way calling and voice dialing with one button press, and a talk time of up to 4.5 hours. Nothing too different here, and the name is a tad cheesy, but it does look quite attractive. TheFirstOne is available for $149 from novero's website and Amazon.com.
Is this a real RoboCop?
The K5 robot, developed by Sunnyvale, Calif.-based Knightscope, is designed to be a surveillance robot for law enforcement, private security firms, schools and anything else looking for an extra set of eyes and ears on the ground. The 5-foot, 300-pound robot can roam autonomously, sending back real time data about an area with technology that does facial recognition, lidar mapping and 360-degree video. CNET's Kara Tsuboi got a closer look at what makes the K5 robot tick.
