Latest pictures: the Instagram-inspired Socialmatic camera

For us, the Socialmatic camera remains one of the coolest stories we’ve covered in 2012. After all, even the greatest of cynics can’t deny that there’s something uplifting about the story of a fledgling design company that gets funding for a camera design that is based on the Instagram app...
Band's LEDs show would make even Coldplay jealous

Band’s LEDs show would make even Coldplay jealous

As huge fans of things that glow in the dark, we’ve been massively impressed by Coldplay’s use of light effects, glowbands and Neon graffiti during their Mylo Xyloto world tour. That said, we think Chris Martin and co might have a serious rival for the “Best use of light effects”...

Camille Seaman’s stunning pictures of supercell thunderstorm clouds

The greatest superhero movies of all time

Jack Reacher trailer released

Jack Reacher trailer released

Let’s take a moment to forget about all of the press coverage of Tom Cruise’s divorce from Katie Holmes, and instead take some time to appreciate the guy for what he does best: making great action movies. Mission Impossible 4 was one of them, and Jack Reacher, for which the...

Official pictures: McLaren 12C Spider

We were going to start this article off  by posing the following question: “What’s better than a McLaren MP4-12C?”. Then it dawned on us that that’s a ridiculous question, given that nothing is. But, in the event you were wondering what’s as good as the MP4-12C, then look no further...
Roxie LS to be the next Lana Del Rey?

Roxie LS to be the next Lana Del Rey?

At this point last year, American singer Elizabeth Woolridge Grant was unknown to the wider public. But, that swiftly changed following the overwhelming success of the YouTube video for her single Video Games, resulting in Grant, aka Lana Del Rey, becoming a household name and one of the finest examples...

In focus: Polaroid Z2300 Instant Digital Camera

If you look at it from the front onwards, you could easily mistake the Z2300 Instant Digital Camera for being Polaroid’s very own contribution to the smartphone market. But, unlike Microsoft and Google, who have both taken footsteps into new markets during the past fortnight, Polaroid is sticking to what...
The camera that lets you take pictures with your eye

The camera that lets you take pictures with your eye

Steven Spielberg’s superior dystopian thriller Minority Report is famous for showcasing a number of future technologies that are now either a reality or close to being one, including multi-touch interfaces, retina scanners and customised advertising boards. It’s made the previously unthinkable a real possibility, which is why we’re excited about...

The world’s fastest sedan in slow motion bullet footage

  In the past we’ve seen some pretty interesting ways to promote a car, including showing off its ability to play ice hockey. But none has been more effective than this stunning slow motion footage of the BMW M5 – aka the world’s fastest sedan – smashing into large inanimate...
Microsoft Surface to challenge iPad dominance

Microsoft Surface to challenge iPad dominance

While the iPhone has its rivals in the form of the Blackberry and HTC, Apple’s iPad tablet has gone relatively unchallenged since it hit the market in the spring of 2010. But, that all looks set to change with the imminent arrival of the Surface – Microsoft’s very own rival...

Magical light stencils brighten the world

Magical light stencils brighten the world

By now you may have figured out that we have an insatiable appetite for all things light-graffiti-related. After weeks of therapy (Was it the neon fashion we wore as children in the early ’90s? We may never know), we thought we’d got a grip on it, but then we stumbled...
Is there anyone who can replace Christian Bale as Batman?

Is there anyone who can replace Christian Bale as Batman?

It only hit the web on Monday evening, yet the world is still talking about the brilliance of the third and final trailer for Christopher Nolan’s last Batman film, The Dark Knight Rises. On the evidence of the trailer alone, it seems that Batman Begins and The Dark Knight were...

Film review: Total Recall

Film review: Total Recall

Is it real, is it Recall, the ads ask. Well, no, this mind-bending, future-shock action thriller is not remotely Total Recall as we knew it in Arnie’s day. Nobody goes to Mars, and it’s set in ultra-trendy futuristic London, for heaven’s sake. Commendably, and completely justifying a remake, it’s a total reboot of Philip K...

Man ages five years in four minutes

‘Supremely dedicated’ would be the appropriate way to describe anyone who takes a photograph of themselves every day for a period of five years, in order to show the world how their physical appearance has transformed over that period of time. Which is exactly what Mike (we don’t know his last name), or Thisnomyp, as...

Film review: Circumstance

The multitude of repressive setbacks in the way of lesbian love in Teheran is the theme for this brave, provocative and moving Iranian drama, the Audience Award winner at the Sundance Film Festival. It’s also an eye-opener as an explosive, revealing portrait of Iran’s youth culture, with its rush of parties, drugs and blooming sexuality....

Film review: The Three Stooges

Ladies and gentlemen, three small cheers, please, for a good-natured, affectionate, kid-friendly and adult-friendly toast to the pretty-much long-forgotten slapstick talent that was The Three Stooges. Not what you’d expect from gross-out merchants The Farrelly Brothers. Not many laughs then? Not one to bother about? As the Stooges themselves proved years ago, silly slapstick is...

Film review: The Watch

Four continually-squabbling middle-aged suburban nerds form a neighbourhood watch to tackle pesky aliens that are troubling the place. Yes, folks, it’s the setup of Ghostbusters, with aliens replacing ghosts. If the story idea seems second hand and a bit stale, so are the gags in this surprisingly weak and clunky script by Seth Rogen, Evan...

F70 Hybrid: inspiration for the new Ferrari supercar?

The next Ferrari Flagship, son of the Enzo, grandson of the F50, and great-grandson of the F40, is due to be revealed towards the end of this year. But so far nobody outside the Ferrari hive has any accurate idea of how the car – speculatively called the F70 – actually looks. And that’s thanks...

The body-controlled Audi Elite Concept

The body-controlled Audi Elite Concept

The Audi Elite Concept is the work of designer Eric Leong. What’s most remarkable about the Audi Elite concept isn’t its dramatic styling, its race-car like single-seat layout, or even its radical “artificial photosynthesis process”, which somehow powers it. No, the Audi Elite’s real selling point is its completely revolutionary control system.

Film Review: The Expendables 2

While not quite ‘the best action movie of the year’ as advertised on the poster, The Expendables 2 is a total blast – a bit scrappily made, like a cheery old-style B-movie, but consistently funny and exciting, even sometimes hilarious and thrilling.
