πŸ”— A Real Smart Watch brooksreview.net Ben Brooks:

Standing up, as much as you think it does something, doesn’t do jack shit for extending your life. But congrats on hitting those rings and goals. What would be better: using your computer or device less, but yeah that really is not good for sales, right?

I disagree with a lot of this.

πŸ”— How Vantablack, the darkest material ever, can take gaming to a new level www.digitaltrends.com Luke Dormehl:

Since its invention in 2014, Vantablack has expanded beyond its original mission brief as a material for use in calibrating the cameras for satellites in orbit. Earlier this year, a version of the material called VBx2 was used to paint the outside of a large pavilion in South Korea for the Winter Olympics. This marked a major turning point.

A truly dark movie theater, for example? The next generation of ultra-immersive video arcades? Heck, a hotel room with real blackout blinds? β€œ[We’re interested in clever applications in different areas where it’s designed to deliver maximum impact for people to experience,” Jensen said. β€œI think this has a whole lot of potential.”
