Today, we go behind the scenes at the 2014 NBA Finals, learn about Earin’s truly wireless earbuds, relive France’s controversial score with FIFA’s goal-line technology and take a look at Airdog: a GoPro-equipped drone with a knack for sports action. Read on for Engadget’s news highlights from the last 24 hours.
The 2014 NBA Finals might be over (go Spurs), but you can relive some of the glory by perusing a few of our court-side photos. With camera in hand, Edgar Alvarez tours the AT&T Center for a behind-the-scenes look at the epic sports event.
Why film your own sports action video when a UAV could do it for you? If funded on Kickstarter, the GoPro-equipped Airdog drone could be your very own aerial cameraman. All you have to do is initiate its flight from a wrist-mounted controller.
Unlike Beats’ new Powerbeats2, Earin’s wireless buds are completely cable-free — and they recharge inside your pocket. For a $170 pledge on Kickstarter, you can snag a pair sometime in January 2015, assuming the target is met.
Remember when FIFA announced it would incorporate new goal-line tech into the 2014 World Cup? Well, it paid off. It was used to confirm a controversial shot from France’s Karim Benzema that bounced off the far post, landing just inside the goal.
