Meet the Snapdragon Rover and Snapdragon Micro Rover

October 21, 2014 6:59 PM | Technology | Comments (0)

In the past few years, Qualcomm Research has elevated its investment in bringing innovation to robotics. Last year, we took you inside the Qualcomm Research labs and showed you a robotics project powered by Qualcomm Zeroth—Brain-Inspired computing—which drew a lot of interest. Today we are unveiling more exciting Qualcomm Snapdragon-powered robotics work.

This morning at Uplinq 2014, Qualcomm’s annual developer conference, Qualcomm CEO Steve Mollenkopf demonstrated advances in robotics using two new robots we call the Snapdragon Rover and the Snapdragon Micro Rover.

Snapdragon Rover has learned to classify objects that it sees with its depth-sensing camera. The images from the camera are processed using brain-inspired machine learning techniques known as “deep learning,” which are also provided by Zeroth.

The Snapdragon Micro Rover is a DIY robot for enthusiasts—if you have access to a 3D printer and a smartphone with a Snapdragon processor, you can build it. The smartphone’s Snapdragon processor acts as the robot’s “brains.” Qualcomm Research has made the design tools available at www.qualcomm.com/robots.

Today Skype released Skype 2.24 for Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows Phone 8, which brings drawing to Skype for the first time! Get creative and draw on a canvas, add silly touches to a photo or draw the fastest route on a map and share it with your friends and family.

Here’s the full list of new features in Skype 2.24 for Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows Phone 8:

Click the ‘+’ icon in a chat and select ‘drawing’ to draw a picture, add a personal touch to a photo or annotate a Bing map.

Sign In Improvements

On Windows Phone 8.1, to save time you can now automatically sign in using the Microsoft Account linked to your phone. Plus, we’ve heard existing users ask for the flexibility to sign in with their Skype account, so we’ve added the ability to do this too. Don’t forget to link your Skype account to your Microsoft Account to fully experience improved security, privacy and password recovery.

HD Screen Support

If you have an HD screen, Skype will now appear in all its glory.

Faster App Resume Time on Windows Phone 8.1

We always want to help you access your conversations as quickly as possible, so we’ve worked hard to make the Windows Phone 8.1 app resume even faster.

Skype Qik Keeps You Connected Between Calls

October 14, 2014 9:53 PM | Software | Comments (0)

Imagine if you could reinvent the Skype experience, taking into account how messaging, selfies and app culture have changed the way we communicate.

A small team of Skype designers and developers recently took up the challenge to build a new app to run alongside Skype and provide an ongoing form of video chat. They knew they had to create something mobile and lightweight, as spontaneous as messaging but as intimate as calling. And it had to be fun and easy to use. What they created was Skype Qik, and we’re so excited to share it with you today.

Skype Qik is a new video messaging app that gives you a totally effortless way to capture the moment, share laughs, and chat with groups of friends. We know you love your weekly Skype calls with family or friends; Qik keeps you connected in between. Dinner with friends? Bored at work? Having a great day in the park? Go on, share it right from your phone. You’d be surprised how quickly a short video can turn into a great conversation.
