Hear THX's new Deep Note right here

Hear THX's new Deep Note right here The THX Deep Note is changing and it can be heard here first. The iconic audio track has long proceeded movies certified by THX and features the now familiar crescendo that showcases the movie's audio capability. This time around THX built the intro to feature 4k video as much as audio as it will be available to theaters that are THX Certified Cinema partners. To make the trailer immersive online, THX utilized its THX Spatial Audio post-production mixing tools that enables online users to experience the multidimensional sound using headphones. It's special. Don some headphones and turn up your volume before pressing play.

The next time you want to watch Netflix in bed, imagine putting down your phone and putting on your sunglasses. TCL, a Chinese company that makes great value TVs, brand new phones and other things with screens, created a prototype for smart glasses that will let you watch movies, play games and even see the content of your phone. Naturally, I tried it out, here at IFA in Berlin this week.

The concept wearable display is essentially a pair of sunglasses, tinted, polarized and UV blocking to protect your eyes, but still transparent enough to see through. Unlike Google Glass, which is meant to be a head-up display you can wear while you're out and about, TCL's design is meant for your personal entertainment only, and it's completely powered by your phone.

Oklahoma couple charged in drowning death of 4-year-old boy

Oklahoma couple charged in drowning death of 4-year-old boy An Oklahoma couple is charged with second-degree murder in the drowning death of a 4-year-old boy. The Wagoner County sheriff's office said Monday that 28-year-old Steven Powers II and his 34-year-old wife, Tina Powers, are charged in the Aug. 15 death of Steven Powers III. Jail records show both are in custody. No attorney is listed to speak on either's behalf. The child died two days after being pulled from a lake in the Toppers area, about 40 miles east of Tulsa. Authorities say Steven Powers II, the boy's father, was under the influence of drugs when Tina Powers left the boy alone with him at the lake.

You simply place your device inside the top of the theater and look up to watch movies or TV shows. You can also control the content via a separate Bluetooth device. “Poptheatr is your own private theater that provides you with a comfortable, personal viewing experience when watching on your mobile

We've used a few personal theatre headsets before, but this might be the best yet if it can get to Avatar was used to show that you could even get the 3D movie experience without wearing the How comfortable are you sitting out in public with this thing on your face , watching a movie or a TV show?

Smart glasses like Google Glass have earned a questionable reputation over the years, and with good reason. Although Google envisioned a device that would give you the power and flexibility of a smartphone right before your eyes, people feared Glass' camera, which could invade their privacy unnoticed, and generally distrusted the unusual frames, which spurred the nickname "Glassholes."

But TCL's device is different. There are no cameras, no heavy battery and no control pad built into the frame, just one screen for each eye for your information and entertainment purposes. They're meant to be used when you're seated, not walking.

I put the "sunglasses" on, and saw, in virtual reality, three panels in front of my eyes, one for each possible demo. There's also a small cursor I could control with a subtle turn of my head. Position it on a demo option for a few seconds to select it, like pressing-and-holding on a phone.

I was instantly in nature, watching beautiful scenery around me. In another scene, a dirt biker sprayed dust while making a sharp turn. The wearable can also play 3D videos as long as your phone will support it. Speakers built into the arms supplied the soundtrack to better immerse me. To return to the main menu, I just looked to the left and held a moment.

Anyone who's used a VR headset knows that rapid head movement is a surefire way to give yourself nausea, which made me skeptical about gameplay, especially for fast-paced racing games, but TCL says you'll be able to use your phone as a controller and keep your head stationary.

The concept is intriguing, but not without its problems. Concept devices are never very sexy, and this wearable display was heavy and clunky. For now, it's also tethered to your phone through an inconvenient cable, but TCL says it will pair over Bluetooth next year when a version of the device comes to market. It'll work with any Android phone, but I saw it demoed on TCL's new Plex.

TCL is experimenting with a personal cinema visor

TCL is experimenting with a personal cinema visor TCL turned up at IFA this year with a couple of prototype devices that it hopes will inform the future direction of its products. The first was a "wearable display concept" that looks an awful lot like the personal cinema headsets that pop up every 18 months or so. It's a pair of smart glasses with two OLED displays hovering over your eyes to try and trick you into thinking you're sat in a cinema. Unlike Sony, Avegant and Royole's offerings, TCL has shrunk the technology into a pair of relatively svelte sunglasses with a polarizing filter on top. Sound comes out of speakers embedded into each arm, and the headset connects over USB-C to a compatible (TCL) phone.

This isn't a VR headset at all, so your ability to see a clear image is iffy if you're not staring at a plain black wall. Without changes, or some sort of cover, that's not going to work well in most environments that have bright or variable lighting and backgrounds. Unlike VR immersion, you also won't be able to look all around you in an environment. Your field of view is about the same you'd see when you wear a pair of real shades.

Fossil's latest hybrid watch is likely powered by Wear OS

Fossil's latest hybrid watch is likely powered by Wear OS Back in January Google announced its plans to buy Fossil's smartwatch technology. Now, after a report by Wareablerevealed that the deal involved the acquisition of the movements used in hybrid watches, we have our first clue as to what Google might be planning. According to 9to5Google, several online listings have emerged showing the "Fossil Collider Hybrid Smartwatch HR" featuring an E-Ink display, which suggests the watch might be running Wear OS. The images show measures for heart rate, weather, step count and date -- similar to those already found in Wear OS devices -- while some pictures reveal a fitness app not unlike Google Fit's Wear OS system.
