2014 Maserati Quattroporte Preview

Maserati has announced a new version of its Quattroporte model, with a sporty updated design, set to premiere at the Detroit Motor Show in 2013.

The Italian carmaker plans to unveil three new models in 2013, starting with the new Quattroporte, which will be on display in Motor City between January 19 and 27.

Aside from what can be gleaned from a few pictures, little information has been released regarding the specs and other details on the new generation four-door GT.

The signature characteristics of the previous model will remain, but the design will be sportier and modernized, and the car will be propelled by a brand new engine.

Time calls Google Glass “Best Invention of the Year”

Time Tech recently announced their Best Inventions of 2012 list and included in the list is Google Glass, Google’s augmented reality eyewear project.

Hailed by Time magazine as “the device that will make augmented reality part of our daily lives,” the tech giant’s Google Glass headset has already been released to developers and is expected to go on general sale in 2014, priced at $1500.

The device incorporates a speaker, microphone, computer display and forward-facing camera and enables users to surf the internet, take photos, check email, and make and receive phone calls, all through voice and gesture commands.

The device is classified as augmented reality because of the way in which it presents information and data. As the wearer looks in a certain direction, information specific to what the user can see will be presented in a non-intrusive manner in their field of vision, whether it is historical information about landmarks, the quickest route to the closest subway station, or reviews of the restaurants that line the street.
