It's not clear which gender will identify more with the Samsung Gear S smartwatch, but its styling has got some analysts puzzling over the company's intentions. "Are they being gender-specific?" wondered Wayne Lam, a senior telecom electronics analyst at IHS. "The Samsung device looks almost feminine." It's likely Samsung -- and the guy wearing it in the product shot above -- would beg to differ. [More...]

ralph-lauren-polo-tech-shirt
Ralph Lauren's Polo Tech shirt may appeal only to a small niche demographic, but the technology it uses eventually could have much broader applications than tweaking an elite athlete's performance.

Everybody's doing the Hyperlapse, it seems -- at least, everyone who owns an iPhone 4 with iOS 7 or better. Late night host Jimmy Fallon posted a Hyperlapse video of him eating a column of cake. Arizona Beverage Company uploaded one of a man binge-drinking nine flavors of its potables. The app provides an easy way to deliver smooth time-lapse photography without expensive hardware.

Researchers recently developed a technique to record the quantum mechanical behavior of one electron in a nanoscale defect in diamond. The team used ultra-fast pulses of laser light both to control the defect's entire quantum state and to observe how the state of one electron in the defect changes over time. "This experiment uses a 'trapped' electron," said team leader David Awschalom. [More...]

google-glass
Google has upgraded Glass with some nifty improvements for the Explorers who are taking it out for a spin. It's not likely consumers will follow those brave few any time soon, although they might warm to a redesign that "normalizes" its look. Where Glass is likely to catch on first is in occupational settings where people could benefit by using a computer while remaining focused on the job. [More...]
