The future arrives: Pioneer launches sat-nav with augmented reality

Image

We’re sufficiently old that we remember when the windscreen augmented-reality display from Knight Rider 2000 seemed fanciful. Still, 200 years later, and finally, such things are a reality. Pioneer is launching NavGate, a sat-nav with a built-in projector that’ll overlay a 30-inch display over the road ahead. Using the unit, drivers can see turn-by-turn directions, the current speed limit, distance, a clock and the estimated time of arrival. The hardware pairs with various smartphone platforms and will even pull data from the CoPilot and iGo Primo navigation apps. It’ll be available from October and will set Europeans back around £600 ($ 933).

Computer composition pioneer David Cope discusses his iPad app (video)

We most likely should not have actually been amazed when David Cope excitedly asked us if we ‘d such as to see his brand-new iPad app, as we began loading up our shoot for an open Engadget Program episode. After all, the previous UC Santa Cruz music professor’s name has, over the past numerous decades, become carefully tied to the world of computer-generated songs– it figures that the trip that began with punch cards would have ultimately caused tablets and smartphones.

Jambandit struck the App Store a couple of weeks back. It’s the first providing from Recombinant Inc., a little business co-founded by Cope in Santa Cruz a few years back as a “commercial extension of a body of [his] scholastic work.” His time in the field began during one specifically bad spell with writer’s block– tasked with writing an opera, Cope avoided standard paths with the earnest development of a new system for producing music, working to develop a software program that could generate scores in the designs of various author– a move that, unsurprisingly, opened a slew of questions on the topic of creativity.Com mentsSource: iTunes

Pioneer intros Platinum Edition CDJ-2000nexus, matching mixer and remixer

Pioneer intros Platinum Edition CDJ2000nexus, equally flashy mixer and remix station

DJs and even nightclubs don’t always get to choose the decks for gigs or studio sessions. In the event they do, however, they’ll likely want a rig to remember — and Pioneer is more than willing to sate that desire with new Platinum Editions of the CDJ-2000nexus CD turntable, DJM-900nexus mixer and RMX-1000 Remix Station. All three are similar to existing equipment on the inside, but come with an extra-reflective chrome finish that’s bound to be noticed, if more by the DJ than the audience on the dance floor. They’ll also be harder to find when they’re shipping in limited quantities from the outset; the mirror-like treatment is coming to just 4,000 units of the CDJ-2000nexus, and 2,000 each of the DJM-900nexus and RMX-1000. Scratch artists looking for full-on flash will need to buy two turntables and a mixer together as part of a $ 8,499 Platinum Edition set due in February, although those wanting a small taste of the experience can buy the remixer by itself for $ 1,199.

Pioneer shows off 2013 headunit line, rocks our minds with bass (video)

Pioneer shows off 2013 headunit line, rocks our minds with bass video

Pioneer launched a stack of new sets this year for CES as well as an iPhone 5 connectivity solution for those left hanging since upgrading to Apple’s latest phone. We’ve seen the headunit specs so we thought we’d give you a pic tour of the newest devices as well as a short clip of us sitting in the custom Lexus CT 200h playing with its ridiculous system. The centerpiece of the system is the AVH-X8500BHS receiver (above) and a custom Steampunk-inspired sub enclosure loaded with six PRS D800 amps. End result? hair-moving, skin-creeping bass and volume. We’re digging seeing all the AppRadio expansion to Pioneers’s line and can only hope we see prices drop — and even become pack-ins — for the now rather expensive connectivity cables.
