Apple’s next big thing? Certainly not Starck’s ‘revolutionary’ project

Apple’s next big thing? Certainly not Starck’s ‘revolutionary’ project

Today our dreams for a Philippe Starck-designed Apple product have been quickly dashed by none other than Apple themselves in a simple statement. Speaking with John Paczkowski of All Things D, an Apple spokeswoman said simply that they are not working with Starck on a project at all. On the other hand, it has been revealed (or remembered, rather) that Steve Jobs was indeed working with Starck before he died on a project that very well could have been what Starck was referring to, in a sense.

Apple Starck project bringing ‘brain with motorcycle helmet’ this summer

There's nothing better than when a brilliant industrial designer like Philippe Starck gets the opportunity to design for a massively powerful manufacturer like Apple. This week we're hearing from Starck via a French radio show that he's worked with Apple for several years on a project which will be released this summer - a "revolutionary" product at that.

Gabe Newell of Valve speaks of futuristic Wearable Computers

This week at the games portal the world knows best as a comic, Penny Arcade, Valve's own Gabe Newell spoke on many things in an interview, perhaps most interestingly of all on experiments he's been doing with wearable computers. It's not that long ago, he noted, that what was called the "wearable computer" was a growing industry, or at least a possibility for a market sometime in the future. Since those days, whenever those days may have been, law suits were filed for exploding computer body suits, nothing solid ended up really coming together during the popularity wave of the wearable computer, and they all but fizzled out - but they still exist, he insists, and they're about to be better than they ever were before.
