We've already heard about two different studies in which scientists are developing camouflage systems inspired by squids' color-changing skin. If they're successful, the result could be military clothing that can change its coloration to match the environment. It's an intriguing idea, although it presumably still wouldn't allow soldiers to avoid detection by infrared cameras at night. Now, however, researchers from the University of California at Irvine are developed a stick-on covering that could let them do so.  Read More

The Laser Drone on the prowl The ability to view real-time video from a quadcopter's onboard camera is certainly a handy feature, but let's be honest – there are probably a lot of people who just think, "Wouldn't be great if I could use this to shoot at stuff?". Well, German cyberpunk weapons tinkerer Patrick Priebe has adapted an off-the-shelf drone so it can do just that – using a laser.  Read More

Aalberg Audio has revealed that its Ekko and Aero system will be joined by the Rom and Try...

Changing parameters on a floor-based stomp while playing a song on stage or in the studio is tricky. Aalberg Audio's first effects pedal announced last year aimed to bring some setting-switching ease to the process by allowing players to wirelessly control parameters using a little box that could be attached to a guitar strap or belt. Even though the Ekko and Aero double act is still to be released, the company has already announced two new additions to the family ... the Rom and Trym.  Read More

Stockholm's Tham & Videgård Arkitekter has proposed four interconnected high-rise apartment blocks constructed from wood. Still in the planning stage at present, if the project goes ahead it will rise to a height of 20 stories and include 240 apartments that overlook the sea in Loudden, a former busy international harbor in Stockholm that's currently under redevelopment.  Read More

A slight change to the production process could result in chocolate that is both healthier...

Good news if you're hooked on chocolate. Researchers from Ghent University in Belgium and the University of Ghana have developed a new technique for making chocolate that results in it being both healthier and more flavorful. The technique differs from conventional chocolate production in that cacao beans are roasted at a lower temperature and bean pods are left unopened for five days rather than split open right away. It is expected to be particularly useful in countries where cacao beans have less natural flavor and antioxidant activity.  Read More

Powered by a retuned version of the Range Rover Sport's supercharged engine, the HST's 3.0-liter supercharged V6 produces 40 hp (30 kW) more than the the standard Sport, and features a more road-focused suspension tune for improved handling.  Read More

B&O sound is coming to HP devices

Your next HP laptop will have premium audio powered by Bang & Olufsen rather than Beats, after the electronics giant drew its existing partnership to a close. The end to the HP/Beats deal, which has been in place since 2009, was widely predicted after Apple purchased Dr. Dre's music company for US$3 billion last May.  Read More
