Chewbacca Crocs unveiled ahead of new Star Wars movie

Chewbacca Crocs unveiled ahead of new Star Wars movie

Items modeled after Star Wars characters are nothing new, and we've seen the number of gadgets grow as the next movie's premiere grows nearer (not that there was ever a shortage of such items). The newest one to surface is a bit of a misstep, though, at least if your fashion sense has reached the adult level: Chewbacca-themed Crocs. Yes, Crocs still exist, and these ones are toeing the line crossed by fuzzy Ugg boots, only with a side order of spongy and hole-filled foam.

Mars One project inspires clothing line, is still ill-fated

Mars One project inspires clothing line, is still ill-fated

Mars One inspired a lot of people when it first entered the public eye. Thousands of applicants volunteered for a one-way trip to Mars. Almost immediately, though, critics began pointing out big problems with the proposed plan, and soon after the applicants themselves began raising issues. The dream is still alive despite this, and the company is still pushing on, still insisting that its plan is possible. Spawning from the project is an upcoming line of clothing that will be revealed at the upcoming Spring/Summer 2016 fashion show.

Converse Chucks redesigned with Nike tech for comfort

Converse Chucks redesigned with Nike tech for comfort

For the first time in the 98 years since the Chuck Taylor shoe was released, Converse has issued a redesign. This is the Chuck Taylor II, complete with NIKE technology inside. Not so much technology as cushioning. Not so much a redesign as an addition of a long-bemoaned missing part of the equation: comfort. This version of the shoe isn't as bare and minimal as its predecessor. This version of the shoe wont result in aching feet and a less-than-optimal jump shot when you've been out on the court for more than 5-minutes.

Google and Levi’s team on Jacquard touch-sensitive clothes

Google's ATAP team promised to blow our socks off at I/O 2015, and Project Jacquard is how it plans to do that, a new conductive fabric that can track touch. Intended to bring new types of sensing and control to clothes, furnishings, and other areas which might not normally be electronically connected. And, while we've seen conductive threads woven through materials before, Project Jacquard goes further than most, including a partnership with one of the biggest names in fashion.

Kanye West “YEEZY BOOST” sneakers released in technical video

Kanye West “YEEZY BOOST” sneakers released in technical video

If you though a pair of sneakers could never warrant a nationwide live video event hosted by an international pop star, you were wrong. Kanye West has just run an event just like that - with live feeds being sent to theaters in several cities across the United States. And the subject matter - they're not embedded with Bluetooth, nor are they able to check your steps. They are, on the other hand, designed by and endorsed by Kanye West himself. For many consumers, that's more than enough reason to want a pair or two or three.

Sartorial robots sew fashion and robotics together

Move over self-lacing shoes. While you're still bidding your time to fulfill childhood dreams, a fleet of these tiny robots might already be busy zipping up clothes. Adam Whiton from MIT's Personal Robots Group is introducing a new kind of robot, one that does not fly, does not clean, and does not cuddle. These "sartorial robots" have one purpose and one purpose only, to give a more human appeal to robots by incorporating them into one of the most human pursuits of all: clothing.

This bra claims to detect cancer better than a mammogram

This bra claims to detect cancer better than a mammogram

We've seen some rather unusual lingerie before, like one that has a built-in heart sensor and some that light up in rather questionable circumstances. Cyrcadia Health is making yet another one, but this time it has a more serious tone. The iTbra is a "smart" bra that women can wear to take the place of a mammogram test or monthly tests. The bra is fitted with sensors which communicate with a doctor's or a user's mobile device, making cancer detection quicker and less awkward.

The Falcon Backpack mini-Review

The Falcon Backpack mini-Review

When we reviewed the Falcon Northwest TLX gaming laptop, with it came a backpack. Not just any backpack - a custom-made Falcon Northwest backpack designed by the founder of the company Kelt Reeves. This backpack cannot be purchased on its own - it only comes with a TLX or DLX notebook from Falcon Northwest. But that doesn't mean we can't count it amongst the finest tech backpacks we've seen over the past several years.
