Square Announces Terminal Standalone Point-of-Sale Solution

Square has just released Square Terminal, a new all-in-one point of sale solution for the company’s payments service. Rather than relying on an accessory attached to an iPhone or iPad, Square Terminal provides full end-to-end credit card processing for traditional swipe and chip card payment methods as well as contactless payments, including support for Apple Pay. 

The device connects to Square via Wi-Fi, and includes a touchscreen for keying in transactions and amounts, as well as a built-in receipt printer for issuing paper receipts (although Square’s e-mail and text receipt options are also still available with the terminal as well). 

A built-in battery and durable construction allows the terminal to be used anywhere without needing to be tethered to a desk, meaning it can be used in environments like restaurants and also be easily set up at trade shows and other events, although merchants will need to either have a Wi-Fi network or mobile hotspot available, although an offline mode allows users to keep taking payments even when no internet connection is available. 

Terminal is available in the U.S. for $399, although Square is offering a $300 processing credit for merchants who are new to Square.

Facebook Portal

Facebook has announced Portal and Portal+, two new video communication devices for the home that dramatically change the way we keep in touch. Thanks to AI technology, Portal makes video calling easier and more like hanging out, while a widescreen display lets you enjoy every moment together. When you can’t be there, Portal and Portal+ let you feel there.

With a 10-inch 1280 x 800 display, Portal from Facebook improves video calling and lets you enjoy quality time with family and friends — hands and distraction free. Looking for a larger screen for more flexibility? You can also opt for a 15-inch 1920 x 1080 pivoting display with Portal+. Both models are designed to help you feel closer to the important people in your life and make video chats feel less like a call, and more like you’re actually in the same room.

Portal and Portal+ are available now for pre-order in the US – from Facebook at portal.facebook.com, as well as Amazon and Best Buy – and will begin shipping in November. You can bring Portal home for $199 USD and Portal+ for $349 USD. You can also receive $100 USD off any two devices — this means a bundle of two Portal devices will be priced at $298 USD, so you can share the experience right out of the box.

Ninebot Electric Gokart

Winner of a 2018 Red Dot Design Award, the Segway Electric Gokart was engineered for one thing: fun. Its clever design uses a Segway miniPro as its rear wheels and propulsion system, making it useful even after the race is over. 

Made to drift, it accommodates a height range of 4′ 5″ to 6′ 3″ , has a maximum load of 220 lbs., and can accelerate from 0-12 mph in just 2 seconds, with different riding modes capping the top speed at 5, 10.8, or 15 mph. 

Connect your Gokart to the app via Bluetooth to display driving speed, cruising range, and fault reminders of the Gokart in real-time. You can also access the new rider tutorial, control lighting, set driving modes, update firmware, and more.

Battery life ranges from 8 to 12.4 miles, depending on driving mode, and the collapsible design means it will fit in most trunks.

Preorder from Indiegogo for $1,149.
