iPhone 6 built from various leaked parts partially boots up on video

iphone 6 video

Modified iPhone vendor Feld & Volk has posted a video this afternoon of what is believed to be a complete 4.7-inch iPhone 6. The firm, which has demonstrated its ability to get its hands on rare parts in the past, says it constructed the device from leaked parts.

We’ve seen a plethora of these leaked parts over the past few weeks, as Apple suppliers are presumably ramping up next-gen iPhone production ahead of next month’s event. But this is the first time we’ve ever seen the handset wholly assembled, and turned on.... Read the rest of this post here

This is not the iPhone 6

We're almost completely done with summer, and as fall approaches we expect football, TV premieres (and cancellations), the turning of the leaves and of course one more thing: iPhone leaks. Apple's next gen phone is just weeks away from its debut and as usual, the rumor mill is running at full steam with parts, rumors about parts, and the inevitable blurrycam pictures of vague rectangles flying around the internet. As a (self) reminder to not take any of it too seriously we present this video from The Second City Network, providing the exclusive first look at a device that our sources in the manufacturing chain have confirmed is definitely not the iPhone 6.

Instagram launches Hyperlapse, a smart time-lapse video app

Instagram Hyperlapse (iPhone screenshot 001)

If you’re looking for a clever use of the iPhone’s gyroscope and accelerometer sensors, look no further than Hyperlapse, a new iOS app by Facebook-owned Instagram which lets you create panning and time-lapse shots, steadycam-style.

The time-lapse feature is similar to one Apple will bring to iOS devices with the release of iOS 8 in Fall.

As for the tracking shots, the software uses advanced algorithms and your iPhone’s hardware to smooth out panning shots as if you recorded video with a Steadicam or a professional $15,000 tracking rig.

And in what prove to be a killer feature for folks who loathe Instagram, Hyperlapse can be enjoyed without an Instagram or Facebook account as no signup is required to use the app.

Hyperlapse is available free in the App Store.... Read the rest of this post here

Instagram’s Hyperlapse app turns shaky video into smooth time-lapse

The videos you see on Instagram right now are rarely worth writing home about -- after all, most people just slap filters on them and cast them out into the social ether. As it turns out, the folks at Instagram have cooked up a new to create truly beautiful shareable videos with a new app they call Hyperlapse. In traditional Instagram fashion, it's a breeze to use: all of the heavy lifting is done behind the scenes, so all you have to do is record what's happening in front of you and choose how fast (between 1x and 12x) you want the resulting creation to play back. The end result? Some incredibly smooth, downright entrancing time-lapse videos that don't require a desktop to make.

Leave your phone at home without feeling uneasy about it

Finally, there's a device with a spec sheet that'll let you feel good about leaving your other phone elsewhere. Enter the noPhone: a solid brick of plastic that stands in at the size and weight comparable to any of those popular handsets. What's more, the device has a 0-megapixel camera, infinite battery life and is both waterproof and shatterproof. All of that looks good on paper, but the real selling point is how the noPhone's features improve communication. Eye-to-eye contact and conversing with actual spoken words at dinner are on their way back to couples everywhere. That's because you won't be using this slab to text or call someone else, but you can leave it in your pocket to feel like the tether is still intact. No word on a release date or pricing just yet, but you can see the gadget in action on the other side of break.

LG will reveal a circular smartwatch next week to compete with the Moto 360

Of the three Android Wear smartwatches introduced at Google's developer conference in June, the Moto 360 was by far the crowd favorite; its circular watchface gives it a classic, elegant look, and a stark contrast to the squarish Samsung Gear Live and LG G Watch. It turns out that LG wasn't very excited about its first Wear watch either: It's going to introduce a round-faced sequel -- called the LG G Watch R -- next week in Berlin, shortly after Motorola officially launches its new timepiece.

Vine finally lets you make clips based on your existing videos

Vine video importing

If there has been a recurring gripe with Vine, it's that you've had to capture all your videos in Vine to share them -- you either had to record 6-second square clips or head elsewhere. You won't have to make that compromise any more, though. As of today, iOS users (Android is coming soon) can use existing videos in their Vines, no matter how many are needed or how they were shot. If you want to stitch together highlights from your iPhone 5s' slow-motion footage, you can.
