Toshiba announced wireless-enabled development kits based on its dual-core Cortex-A9 “TZ5000 ApP Lite” SoC, supporting Ubuntu and Android 4.4, respectively. The RBTZ5000-2MA-A1 (Linux) and RBTZ5000-6MA-A1 (Android) kits are anchored with two vastly different development boards. The Ubuntu-based “2MA” version is a full-featured, 90 x 55mm board while the “6MA” (Android) module is a mere 57 x 24mm and integrates HDMI and USB connectors at each end, making it more suitable for developing stick/dongle style media players and other Internet of Things devices. Both designs target IoT, streaming media, “and other content-rich consumer devices,” says Toshiba.

Unlike most media players, the Slice ships with a 1TB hard disk drive for storing plenty of video for offine playback.

Skully has achieved Indiegogo funding for an Android 4.4 based motorcycle helmet with a head-up display, GPS navigation, and a 180-degree rearview camera. Last October, Skully Systems (then called Skully Helmets) unveiled its high-tech Skully P1 motorcycle helmet and launched a beta testing program. The P1 never reached market, but has been refined into an AR-1 model that was launched on Indiegogo on Aug. 10. The Skully AR-1 quickly blasted past its $250,000 Indiegogo flexible funding goals, and had surpassed $900,000 at publication time. Helmets are available starting at $1,399, with shipments due in May 2015.
