The world's biggest Starbucks now has augmented reality. The new 30,000-square-foot Starbucks Reserve Roastery in Shanghai released an AR app that will deliver a tour of the store's equipment. Customers also get virtual badges for participating in the tour and once all of the badges are earned, they get a custom "Roastery filter" so they can get the perfect selfie at the end of the tour.
Apple's iMac Pro is rumored to launch in a few weeks. The iMac Pro is a new desktop computer from Apple that was announced back in June. The iMac Pro will feature a 27-inch Retina 5K display, up to 18-core Xeon processors and up to 22 Teraflops of graphics computation -- say that 10 times fast! The Pro will apparently prevent theft of the workstation and will retail at $4,999.
Joy, a new smart photo album, has raised $7 million. The round was led by Obvious Ventures, bringing the total amount of funding to $9.5 million. The inventor of Joy realized that flipping through photo albums was becoming a thing of the past, so he created this social device to make sharing family photos and videos easier. The device retails for $499.
