HTPC In Keyboard Form

At CES this year Asus demonstrated a concept of a full HTPC enclosed in a keyboard. The Asus EEE keyboard was no thicker than your average keyboard but housed a working computer (most likely an Intel Atom) that used ultra-wideband wireless HDMI to transmit the video and audio signal to a television with a receiver in back. Making thing even cooler is the inclusion of a small touch screen on the keyboard right side that can display the desktop, multimedia controls or anything else. No word yet on price or real specs but Asus CEO Johnny Shih claims it will be available in the next three to six months.

Yale Real Living™ Assure Lock™ with Bluetooth

The new Yale Real Living™ Assure Lock™ with Bluetooth replaces conventional keys with digital keys accessed through the Yale Digital Keys app for Android and iOS mobile devices, and through an app for the new Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch. The Yale app allows homeowners to unlock doors, send keys to others, control when others have access, get a message when someone enters, and revoke a digital key at any time. Unlocking the deadbolt couldn't be simpler, whether using the Samsung Gear S2 or a smartphone. With the new Samsung Gear S2, touch the watch app to activate the digital key, then touch the lock screen to unlock the deadbolt. With a smartphone, Yale's "Twist and Go" technology allows the user to hold the phone vertically when approaching the door, then twist it 90 degrees to unlock the deadbolt. Homeowners can also unlock the deadbolt using its capacitive touchscreen and a four- to eight-digit code.
