Google has signed up the smart watch market. It’s released a new version of its operating system, Android for wearables. These smart watches give us a taste of the style that Google is aiming for, together with its manufacturing partners and fashion brands. The first devices which would make use of the voice control “Google Now” interface are expected later this year.

Sony has unveiled a virtual reality headset for its PlayStation 4. Project Morpheus has been 3 years in the making. The device features a full HD display with a 90 degree field of view.  It’s equipped with positional head tracking. Sony admits it’s counting on innovative developers to help make the games that will sell the hardware.
