Helio, the phone company that isn't a phone company, is rumored to be introducing at least two new phones to the MySpace-friendly carrier's offerings. According to PhoneScoop , XCE, the company that provides the Java platform for Helio, says that a Samsung and a Pantech model will soon surface as new Helio handsets. Since the Kickflip, by far the sexiest phone in Helio's lineup, has been discontinued, it's likely that Helio will want to introduce a new handset as soon as possible to repopulate its lineup. We look forward to seeing what new handsets Helio has to offer.
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.
