Thermo Tent is currently the subject of a Kickstarter campaign

If you're a regular camper, you probably know what it's like to pitch a tent on a warm evening and wake up the following morning feeling like you're lying in an oven. Cold weather camping can be even more grim, and tents aren't renowned for their sound insulation either. Derek O'Sullivan reckons he's solved these issues with Thermo Tent, which his firm bills as the world's first correctly insulated tent.  Read More

John 'Norwood' Fisher of Fishbone wearing a Miles Davis Musical T

The (relatively) brave new world of digital music consumption can arguably more than satisfy the aural needs of most music lovers, but vinyl and CD collectors also enjoy a visual feast in the shape of album art. Sure, you might get some small pixel pleasure with your MP3, and if you're lucky perhaps even a PDF booklet, but you're unlikely to get anywhere near the satisfaction you'd get from some concept art and band info on a 12 inch square of cardboard or a glossy paper flip-book in a jewel case. The high fashion house of Astrella has linked the digital and the physical with a line of t-shirts where streamed music is part of the package. Next month, shoppers at two Bloomingdale's stores will be able to get access to music and more with the help of their smartphones.  Read More

A tiny, cheap chip may soon bring 3D imaging to smartphones, robotics, and many other area...

As if smartphones can't already do enough, soon they may be able to scan three-dimensional objects and send the resultant high-resolution 3D images to a 3D printer that produces hyper-accurate replicas. This comes thanks to a small and inexpensive device called a nanophotonic coherent imager (NCI), which was developed by scientists at Caltech. The NCI could add 3D imaging to a variety of other devices and applications such as improving motion sensitivity in human machine interfaces and driverless cars.  Read More
