Each teardrop provides the makings for a quick and easy get away, offering shelter for two adults or with a few additions even a family of four

Colorado-based outdoor enthusiast Britton Purser has teamed up with his two younger brothers to create a series of lightweight teardrop caravans tough enough to take off road. The Vintage Overland teardrops weigh about 700 lb and provide the makings for a quick and easy getaway, offering shelter for two adults or, with a few additions, even a family of four.

Tadpole-like endoscope swims through gastrointestinal tract in search of cancer

The Tadpole Endoscope can be swallowed like a large pill and then remotely guided around inside the patient's stomach by a doctor

Endoscopes are essential tools for the medical examination of many organs of the human body, and are best known for their use in examining the gastrointestinal tract. Generally consisting of a flexible tube with a light source and an arrangement of lenses – or small cameras in more modern devices – the endoscope is a vital, but unwieldy tool that takes a great deal of skill to operate and maneuver around in tight areas. Now engineers have created a new device dubbed the Tadpole Endoscope, that literally swims around inside the organ of a patient and wirelessly transmits video of what it sees… Continue Reading Tadpole-like endoscope swims through gastrointestinal tract in search of cancer

Burberry Becomes First Major Fashion Brand With an Apple Music Channel

Burberry is launching a curated channel on Apple Music, making it the first luxury fashion house to do so. The Burberry Apple Music channel is listed under “Curator Playlists,” which also includes content from brands and media sites like GQ, Wired, Pitchfork, and Rolling Stone.

Content provided by Burberry includes selections from company’s current CEO, Christopher Bailey, along with music played on the Burberry runway and a selection of emerging British talent.

Burberry is the first clothing company to debut an Apple Music channel, but it’s not an unusual choice due to its Burberry Acoustic campaign, which supports new British music talent and features acoustic tracks recorded exclusively for Burberry. Burberry employs a full-time music team that works on Burberry Acoustic and matches up artists with record labels.

According to the The New York Times, going forward, the Burberry channel will feature performances, songs, and films that have come out of Burberry’s work with artists on Burberry Acoustic. The channel’s first exclusive will come from emerging British artists set to perform at the Burberry Womenswear show on September 21.

“I am excited about our partnership with Apple on this amazing platform which will enable us to take what we do now with Burberry Acoustic and share it with an even bigger audience,” Christopher Bailey, Burberry’s chief executive, said in a statement.

Burberry and Apple have had a long partnership, first teaming up in 2013 to show off the photographic capabilities of the iPhone 5s. Angela Ahrendts, Apple’s current head of retail, was also the CEO of Burberry until the Spring of 2014 when she joined Apple. Burberry’s new Apple Music channel marks the first collaboration between Apple and Burberry since her departure.

Supski lets you “ski” on a paddleboard

The Supski combines stand-up paddleboarding and cross-country skiing

We’ve already seen setups that allow stand-up paddleboards (SUPs) to be rowed, sailed, or paddled like a kayak. There’s apparently still room for innovation, however – the SupSki system lets you propel your board using upper body techniques borrowed from the sport of cross-country skiing.

VLC and Plex Apps Coming to New Apple TV

vlclogoApple’s latest fourth-generation Apple TV includes a dedicated App Store, which will allow users to access many apps and features that were not previously available on the older Apple TV. Popular media streaming apps Plex and VLC, for example, are both coming to the Apple TV, with tvOS versions already in the works.

The developers behind VLC announced their work on a tvOS app this morning, though few details have been given. “Some code to build VLCKit for the new tvOS was merged,” reads a blog post. “It’s very early though, but we have video playback!”

For those unfamiliar with VLC, it’s a cross-platform media player that’s designed to support multiple audio and video file formats and act as a streaming server. VLC is available on streaming devices that compete with the Apple TV, such as the Amazon Fire TV, but on Apple’s platform, it’s been limited to Macs and iOS devices.

Similarly, popular media organization and streaming app Plex is coming to the Apple TV. A tvOS version of Plex is in development, Plex co-founder Scott Olechowski told ITworld last week. Like VLC, Plex is in the early stages of development, so few details are available

There is no question we will be able to offer Plex on the platform. There are multiple ways to go about it, based on the tvOS SDK we now have access to. We are now evaluating the best path for Plex and will begin work in earnest once we have evaluated the options. The ability to access great and proven iOS frameworks on the device is great for developers like us — we know the stuff is solid and will perform really well. Our goal is to enable people to enjoy Plex on the hardware platforms of their choice, and there is no doubt this will be a top platform for us.

Currently, Plex works with set-top boxes like the Chromecast and the Fire TV, and it is a popular choice with jailbroken Apple TVs, but it is not available to Apple TV users in any official capacity. Plex is designed to organize personal media libraries consisting of video and music files, allowing them to be easily streamed to TVs and other devices, either locally or remotely.

As of today, developers are beginning to place their orders for Apple TV Developer Kits, so we may soon be hearing a lot more about these two apps and other apps that will be coming to the Apple TV.
