The good news is that Nike is adding some new colors to its Nike+ connected FuelBand and SportWatch GPS lines so your wristwear can more closely match your kicks all winter. While the original translucent limited edition Nike+ FuelBand Ice won’t be returning, at the end of October it will be available in new White Ice and Black Ice colors, with distribution expanded to more Nike stores in the US, Canada and UK. If you prefer GPS, precise timing and a multiplatform Nike+ Running app to LEDs, the TomTom-powered Nike+ SportWatch GPS is rolling out a new white/silver colorway. The bad news? If you were waiting for other updates, like a FuelBand with GPS, SportWatch that can pump out some MP3s while you run, FuelBand app for Android or really anything other than cosmetic changes, you’re out of luck. We wouldn’t let that get in the way of a workout however, check below for more details on each or return to customizing some NikeiD Lebron Xs — your choice.
A frequent gripe of Lytro camera owners has been the hands-off nature of the photography, with that signature infinite focus about the only real fine-tuning that’s on tap. As of a fresh firmware upgrade, the light-field camera is much friendlier to demanding shooters. The unconventional point-and-shoot now lets owners manually adjust the ISO sensitivity (80 to 3,200) and shutter speed (1/250th of a second to 8 seconds) as well as lock the exposure or invoke a neutral density filter. Regardless of their precision demands, anyone who was already sold on the concept still gets a few perks with today’s refresh: the 8GB model now comes in Seaglass green and a Target-exclusive Moxie Pink, and there’s both a $ 30 sleeve as well as a $ 60, accessory-friendly case for those who’ve fully committed to the Lytro lifestyle. Neither upgrade will bring higher resolutions or video, but they’ll go a long way towards accommodating those who were at least on the fence. Check out an interactive sample of the shutter speed control’s benefits after the break.

Researchers at Harvard University have developed a squishy octopus-like robot that can have different colored dyes pumped through its skin to change colors, then remain motionless until you walk by and HELLO, FACEHUGGER.
The machine was made from silicon-based polymers, and its movement was driven by air pumping through tiny cylinders in its four “legs”.
The camouflage-bots are covered in a network of tiny channels. As different dyes are pumped in, the robots can quickly change their appearance.
As well as changing colour, hot or cold fluids can be pumped into robots, enabling them to be thermally camouflaged, and fluorescent liquids allow them to glow in the dark.
Currently, the fluid is pulled in from a reservoir, but in the future it could be incorporated into the robot’s body.
Wow, not only color-camouflaged, but thermally camouflaged too? Now even Predators won’t be able to hunt them. You know, it’s times like this that I wish NASA had sent me to Mars instead of that stupid rover.
Hit the jump for a video of the octobot’s color-changing in action.
This video demonstrates how the E-Colors played a role in helping South West School students achieve success in a robotics project. Equilibria wish to recognize Chevron corporation and Michael Woinsky for their contribution in creating this experience for the students to realize their potential. Video Rating: 0 / 5Related Posts:
Microsoft’s Windows 8 Release to Manufacturing (RTM) is “on schedule” for the first week of August, and new screenshots leaked this weekend show a number of changes planned for the final version of the operating system. Set to debut to the public on October 26th, the final build of Windows 8 will include a boot screen with the new Metro-stylelogo, new color picker options for the desktop UI, and additional Metro inspired wallpapers.
Winunleaked has unearthed a number of the changes with screenshots, revealing that Internet Explorer 10 desktop will now interact with the color scheme of Windows 8. Microsoft has previously revealed that it will be removing the Aero Glass interface for the Windows 8 desktop in the final edition — a move…
Although Tesla has already delivered the first Model S to its eager owner, the fledgling automaker is still offering a steady stream of treats to those patiently waiting for the official June 22nd date. Drivers who spring for the Signature Series trim level of the EV sedan now get a year’s worth of mobile data at no extra cost, a bonus no doubt helpful for buyers who get lost on the first drive. Regardless of which Model S might eventually find the driveway in the future, Tesla is providing a look at how it paints the car’s chosen color. Each aluminum shell is dipped in an electro-coating solution, baked in an oven, water-sealed and given its final clear coat paint by robots — no dealer will be charging extra for weatherproofing here. It’s all appropriately futuristic, and you can get a peek at the whole process in the video after the break as well as at the source.

Take the smartphone camera sensor that was the toast of MWC, add in the burgeoning Windows Phone platform and this might be what you might get. Although we hope — and suspect — that it isn’t. Sneaking out from China with some judicious pixelation, the phones look pretty… dynamic. With a profile more often associated with those tough, rubberized feature phones, the color gamut of black, magenta and yellow is at least very new-generation Nokia. But, if the concept hardware wasn’t incredulous enough, wait ’til you hear the specs. A neat paragraph on one slide explains that this Lumia PureView would feature a 4.3-inch curved high-definition touchscreen (a first for Windows Phone), a dual-core process with an Adreno 320 GPU (yet another first) and Nokia’s intriguing 41-megapixel camera sensor peeping out from behind a Carl Zeiss lens. We’re looking at these renders through some high-prescription skeptic goggles and reckon it’s an unlikely new direction for Nokia’s hardware design. However, that’s not to say a tie-up between Nokia’s PureView tech and Microsoft isn’t somewhere along the pipeline…
