Tech gets dressed up at Fashion Week in New York City.
The Memoto isn't a camera like you're used to. It doesn't have a button. Instead, it'll automatically take pictures from wherever you've clipped it, and then it'll create a "searchable and shareable photographic memory" of everything, from high adventure to a lowly stroll.
Clothing sucks. I mean, it's fine for keeping people from walking around naked all day, but finding the right mix of stuff to wear to keep you at the absolute perfect temperature is always tricky. A clothing company called Klymit has a better idea: a jacket with adjustable warmth using pockets of argon gas.
Rayfish Footwear is a company from Thailand that claims to be able to genetically engineer stingrays with customized colors and patterns that it then uses to make shoes. It's a futuristic, dramatic, and perhaps ethically questionable way of designing clothing— we're just not quite sure whether it's real or not.
Wearable tech like the Jawbone Up and Nike FuelBand are great at tracking how many calories you burn, but their simplicity and lack of extra bells and whistles can obscure exactly how powerful they actually are. And then there's the +++ Wearable Player.
D'you realize how much energy you're wasting right now, just sitting there breathing? Yeah, stop killing the environment, you jerk! Just put on thisy here AIRE mask, and all of that tedious in-and-out will turn into power for your cellphone.
Does life get you down? Does the world seem hard or tough? Do people seem stupid, obnoxious or daft? If you've had quite enough of all that, just tune it all out with this totally immersive, 3D, virtual reality, motion-sensing, gesture-enabled very fancy hat.
The whole point of an exoskeleton is to make you feel stronger, faster, more powerful, and just generally way more awesome. The point is not to make you feel like an old person, like this one does.
Sunglasses make everything darker. So reverse sunglasses, then, must make everything lighter. No, it's not night vision, but instead a way to keep us northern hemispherites from getting all SAD right about now.
We liked the look of Jawbone's UP fitness wristband when we first heard about it back in July, but its commercial release has been marred with numerous reports of defective units. Jawbone has now come forward with an apology and an explanation, and they've promised to do what it takes to make things right.
