Caterpillar S60 Smartphone Packs a FLIR Camera


Caterpillar makes tough stuff. It’s known for its range of job-site tools and vehicles, but now it’s venturing into the smartphone business. You’d think it an odd choice, until you see the S60 Smartphone they’re releasing. Its most interesting feature is that it’s the first smartphone with an integrated FLIR camera, which lets on-site workers easily detect “heat loss around windows or doors, spotting moisture or missing insulation, or indentifying misfit electric appliances.” But when you’re not pointing the thing around looking for errant heat, you can be sure the device will survive life on the job site thanks to its “Mil Spec 810G case that can withstand drops of 1.8 meters and is waterproof to 5 meters, a die-cast frame, and a 4.7-inch touchscreen with automatic wet finger and glove support.” It’s got everything a construction worker or contractor would ever want, runs Android Marshmallow with 3GB of RAM on a Snapdragon 617 Octa-core processor, and costs all of $600, available “later this year.”

Here’s What Your Smartphone Always Needed: An Integrated E-Cigarette


They’ve been talking about convergence for years; once separate items now fuse together into one device, the way GPS units and video cameras now both conveniently co-exist within our smartphones. But sometimes we see unusual items declare themselves bedfellows, like this questionable fusion of e-cigarettes and smartphone called Jupiter IO 3, by Vaporcade. It’s a full-fledged smartphone running Android KitKat 4.4, and has 16 hours of runtime thanks to two batteries, one for the phone and the other for the vape. They are shared, so if you don’t smoke much you’ll get more phone time, and vice versa. It uses liquid cartridges that cost $15 a piece, come in several flavours and last about 800 puffs, about as much as 4 packs of smokes. With the companion app you can track usage, liquid levels, and other metrics, which could come in handy for anyone trying to cut down on their smoking habits. The 3G version will set you back $299, while a forthcoming 4G variant is expected to fetch $499. The device has been cleared by the FCC since November 2015, so it seems they’re ready to hit the market. Whether anyone will think this has any worth beyond a cool party trick remains to be seen.

‘Ignore No More’ App Gives You the Power to Lock Phones Remotely

Ignore No More App1


Nobody likes being ignored, especially mothers. Unfortunately, kids (and even hubbies) these days ignore parents or their SOs for one reason or the other. Sometimes, it’s understandable. Other times, it causes undue panic because one party might assume that the other is in trouble. With this premise, Sharon Standifird created Ignore No More.

It’s an app that locks a paired device at the push of a button. The app has to be installed on both “parent” and “child” devices in order for it to work. (In some cases, that could be “wife” and “husband” or “girlfriend” and “boyfriend.)
