It may be weeks between now and the time when the designer of the HTC One series - the lead designer, that is - has left the company. Word has it that Scott Croyle has made clear his intentions to "transition" his role with HTC, and will likely be working in a far different role from what he's in now in the immediate future.
Lamborghini's new Huracán looks incredible in photos, but there's nothing quite like getting up close with a 610HP supercar in the metal to see how design shapes the experience. The replacement for the much-loved Gallardo was shown privately during the New York Auto Show this week, a month after its Geneva debut, and we caught up with Lamborghini to find out more about the coveted coupe.
Back in January, we detailed the work of Professor Behrokh Khoshnevis, the brain behind a giant machine that could 3D-print a 2500 square foot house in 24 hours. While that is an astonishing figure, it has already been beat. A Chinese company has successfully 3D printed 10 hours in a 24 hour time span.
Driving down a 500 meter stretch of highway N329 in Oss, Netherlands can only be best described as a scene right out of a science fiction film. Seeking alternative, and perhaps cheaper, means to light up night roads, the government has agreed to test out a proposal to make use of light-absorbing glow in the dark road paint in place of energy-consuming street lights.
Roku has offered users the ability to control their device via a mobile app for a while now, and though it has received updates in the past, the look has largely remained the same. That changes with version 3.0, which was launched today for mobile users, bringing with it a completely overhauled interface.
Though the wearables market has gained solid momentum over past months, wearable technology is still a niche and most likely to be found while out and about in the form of fitness bands or, occasionally, a smartwatch. Nielsen recently conducted research into how aware Americans are of wearable technology, as well as adoption rates and what consumers are looking for. Not surprisingly, most consumers are aware of the existence of wearables, but pricing and style are two big concerns influencing adoption.
Apple, at least under Jobs' regime, almost never or only so rarely grants interviews, so when it gave Sunday Times the probably once in a lifetime chance to talk to Jonathan Ive, not even the sudden and almost inexplicable downpour in California will stop it. Thanks to that, we are able to get some insight into the thoughts of the man who designed some of the world's most iconic products.
