The Korean electronics giant has partnered with designer Dana Lorenz on jewelry to accompany its wearable computing device, including spiky metal charms that can attach to the watch's strap. While the line doesn't include custom bands for the Gear just yet, that could change in the future.
"I feel the sky is the limit," Lorenz told CNET.
Fashion Week may not be Samsung's typical venue, but the company looked right at home Sunday in the main white tent at … Read more
This season, nothing is more "on trend" in the fashion world than algorithms and engineers. At least, that's what you might be led to believe based on the face time Google products have been receiving lately -- in the pages of Vogue, and now on the runway in New York for the second year running.
As birthday presents go, Skoda did well for itself when its vRS sub-brand turned 10 in 2011. Rather than releasing a Fabia vRS with some stickers plastered to the side, or an Octavia vRS with a tiny dollop of extra power, Skoda decided to break a world record. It wanted to take an as-close-to-standard-as-possible Octavia vRS to Speed Week in Bonneville and come away with a world record.
The car it took isn't exactly showroom fresh -- the parachute attached to the back isn't on any options list I've ever seen. The engine has been fiddled with … Read more
Like the Loch Ness Monster, Abominable Snowman, and Big Foot, a living version of the prehistoric 60-foot Megalodon shark is more fiction than fact. But, the Discovery network's new Shark Week "documentary" would have people think differently.
The network kicked off its annual Shark Week television series with a show called "Megalodon: The Monster Shark Lives," which claims that the finned predator could still be swimming the ocean's depths. However, no scientific evidence proves the creature's existence.
In fact, rather than real footage or actual scientists, Discovery apparently fabricated its Megalodon "evidence&… Read more
From cutting edge entertainment to distant photos of the Earth, we saw the future unfold in pictures this week.
CNET was at Google's "Breakfast with Sundar Pichai" event on Wednesday when the search giant unveiled a new version of the Nexus 7 tablet and a new take on TV. The tiny, $35 Chromecast plugs into a HDMI input to let a wide swath of smartphones, tablets, and devices using the Chrome browser seamlessly fling what they're playing onto the TV.
While Google looked forward, paleontologists from Mexico's National Institute for Anthropology and History and National … Read more

We've seen dresses that tweet before, but never one as political as this one that displays messages on gender equality, racism, and overpriced rents.
Creative agency Deportivo developed the Internet-connected Twitter Dress as a way to help Sweden's youth be heard at Almedalen Week, an annual political summit that draws thousands of politicians, lobbyists, celebrities, and PR folk to the Swedish island of Gotland.
Deportivo worked with Swedish youth organization Crossing Boarders and mobile provider Comviq to create the LED-flashing dress.
Before the summit, Crossing Boarders recruited 30 "ambassadors" to wear the social-media garment in public in hopes of getting the organization's concerns into the public eye. During the summit, which ended last week, the frock scrolled messages tweeted with the hashtag #Twitterklänning ("Twitter Dress"), as well as texts sent to a toll-free number. … Read more
CE Week in New York is often about finding the oddball bits of CES all from the comfort of your Manhattan midtown event space. Winning the Oddball Award for me this year was the PSiO AVS MP3 Color System, a wearable "audiovisual stimulation" device aimed at wellness.
It may look like some bizarre knockoff of Google Glass, but PSiO has more in common with home relaxation-therapy gadgets and meditation tapes. The plastic glasses have a variety of colored LED lights that strobe and shift across an opaque visor, while earbuds (or headphones) play back stereo sounds and voices … Read more
