Shapeways is developing a new material called Elasto Plastic.
It's just what it sounds like, a stretchy, flexible, 3D printable material. The possibilities for wearables like jewelry and shoes are enormous- and the medical implications for a material that looks and behaves like cartilage are incredibly exciting.
Earlier today Materialise announced that their flexible...

We didn't expect a video game controller to seal the deal on living science fiction style.
But it's the most banal uses of innovation that create widespread adoption. Microsoft has just released the new XBox One, with wildly improved Kinect sensor tech.
Seriously, the new Kinect tech is unbelievable. It can probably see what religion you are.
XBox One has widescreen Skype capabilities (for your...

When I came in to work today, our production department (aka "the guys") was discussing the news that J.J. Abrams may do Portal and Half-Life movies.

You talkin' to me?! You talkin' to ME?!?!
T324 owner David Daniels took this photo of his backyard chickens this weekend. We don't wanna mess with these guys!
Like a lot of folks in the East Bay, David keeps chickens- as pets, for eggs, for fun.
The urban homesteading movement is very strong in the Bay Area, particularly in the East Bay, where there's actually a school for urban farming education...

The latest news in wearable tech is that everyone is talking about wearable tech.
At the beginning of the year this trend looked strong, but it's completely outstripped expectations, pushed by the Smart Watch Bubble and Glass-mania. (Click here if you want to see Robert Scoble wearing Glass in the shower. A tad NSFW.)
Just announced, and disturbing: the Jawbone UP is being opened to developers as...

The Startup Battlefield is open at Disrupt NY.
Thirty-five companies have six minutes each to elevator-pitch their products, followed by six minutes of Q&A.
So far, contenders that look volatile to us include Floored, a 3D visualization tool for real estate, and Zenefits, a free, YC-backed employee benefits outsourcer.
Floored is an app built on Matterport, a system...
