One of this gadget's most innovative features is that, at any moment, you can look at your wrist and know the exact time. Phenomenal.
Other tech specs include:
- 1.63-inch Super AMOLED display (320x320 pixels)
- 4 GB internal memory
- 2.0 MP camera with 720p video at 30 fps
- 300 mAh battery (2-3 day battery life)
- Bluetooth 4.0 LE
For fun, we removed the band and weighed this little timepiece: 41 grams (less than 33% the weight of a Rolex Daytona -- in the tech world, we're pretty sure that makes it three times better).

It's still too thick for my taste but I do like the overall design.

Good to see the improved form of the Galaxy Gear. The Galaxy Gear was cumbrous and large, it's clearly looking much better now. But the real issues people faced with the previous version were mostly software related. Are the interactions still asymmetrical or were those fixed in this version?
Only time will tell how people react to this one as they complained about the lack of utility of the previous version.

Some of our culture's most enduring robots appeared in the 80s. The Aliens series produced another evil android, and we saw light robot fare in the form of Short Circuit. Two of the great robots of all time also showed up: The Terminator and RoboCop.
A soundproofing invention called Acoustiblok recently won a television challenge to silence an air horn with only a fraction of an inch of polymer material.
Robots came into their own in the 1970s. Gone were the low-budget black-and-white B movies. Now robots roamed in full-color feature films with A-list actors.
Major global metropolitan areas are implementing a vast number of technology, energy, transportation, and Internet projects to make the metropolis a friendlier, greener, safer, and more sustainable place to be.
Here’s a look at robots depicted in movies and on TV during the 1950s and 1960s. We tried to collect the classics here, omitting the scores of forgettable B movies such as Santa Claus Conquers the Martians and Dr. Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine. Stay tuned for slideshows of robot stars from later decades.
