Over the last year, the teams have developed prototype advanced technology vehicles that are being judged in this year’s competition. It’s a test of wills, and the pressure is on.
*******www****booknews**** Pleasant surprise at Google I/O to come across a brand new prototype from NVIDIA a Tegra 2 tablet. This was the 2nd NVIDIA prototype tablet that I took a video of, the other was running BackBreakers by Natural Motion. I wasn't allowed to take video of the ports of the tablet, but I can tell you what they were. We are lucky that e grabbed these videos on the first day since they were pulled from the show floor for getting too much press. There are two theories as to why this happened, the first was that Google wanted to focus on phones and didn't want tablets on the show floor so they asked NVIDIA to pull. That was rumor what NVIDIA told me what that they were prototypes and not final products. Either way, controversial devices are always good, anything to pull the attention away from the iPad is something that I can stand behind.
The NVIDIA Tegra 2 Prototype Tablet is an 8.9 inch tablet was running Android 2.1 with its 1Ghz Tegra 2 processor. It was also sporting a webcam & microphone and for connectivity on the left hand side of the device we have audio jacks, docking port connector and a microsd card slot. On the bottom we have some status LEDs for Power, Wifi and a lighting blot, not too sure what the lighting bolt LED was for, charging perhaps, hard to say. Moving around the device to the right we have two USB ports and the PSU all covered up with a silicon flap. On the top because it is Android after all we have back, menu and home we also have what appears to be a SIM card slot though it curiously looked a little bit too thin.
The unit measured around 1cm in thickness, but talking to Andrew Edelsten from NVIDIA he did remind me that it is a protype and there are much thinner & lighter versions behind closed doors.
Oh yeah, Unity, is knows for its ability to run amazing games right in your browser, they say its the future, and well, I have to agree.

On Jan 7 Hans and I conducted the first round of tests for the Tweet Race Prototype at the Glenview test center. After months of development work, we were finally able to get Twitter and vehicle to communicate directly. And we got it on film!
On Jan 7 Hans and I conducted the first driving tests for the Tweet Race Prototype. Watch how we maneuver it into a parking spot right next to a brand new SLS AMG -- using only Twitter. Everything went according to plan. But it was a VERY close call.
