Love this as always when you get one thing and pair with something completely unconnected - you create something pretty special, this dude can pull some tricks. Nicely shot too, great storytelling.

As with all fitness nuts - we love data, obsessed with our performance and to see where you can make even minor adjustments in your training, there's a plethora of gadgets from Nike Fuel Band to a whole host of running apps. But more recently more and more start up companies are looking at ways of incorporating tracking technology into our clothing, still at early stages but here are two examples that I found that interests me; one is called Athos The Athos workout gear has sensors throughout that pick up on muscle exertion from the chest, shoulders, arms, back, quads, hamstrings and glutes, plus heart rate and breathing. The module insert transmits that info over Bluetooth to iPhones and iPads pretty cool and useful for fitness freaks, one slight snag is the price, still pretty heavy but I'm sure over time will come down. The other one I like which is less 'wearable' but more of an attachment almost like a cufflink is a Kickstarter project for a company called Notch currently they are aiming to produce $50 sensors with snap-on mounts, along with athletic and street clothing to hold it. So far, the campaign has raised $10,000 of its $100,000 goal. So they have the price nailed, not as tech advanced as Athos clothing, but as always there's a balance to be struck, in cost over utility. I would out of the two put my money on Athos to win this tech clothing race. Watch this space

I love this solves so many problems on so many levels. So, what do we get when we buy a smartphone? Large touchscreen, OS with many apps on it, eventually a camera and a battery that have to be recharged every day or two. And, as we stated above, in a year or two arrives “better”, improved version, so you might be seduced to throw away your old smartphone and buy the latest one. But what if… your smartphone is fully customizable and you’re able to choose which component to upgrade or replace a broken component? Such concept called Phoneblok, I salute the inventors Dave Hakken

Now here is a piece of content from L'Oreal, where they avoid the run of the mill model and plump for a less conventional model AKA Zombie Boy, Dermablend takes you behind the scenes with 'Go Beyond The Cover' this is an old school great demo for the product called Dermablend. (Dave Trott I'm sure would approve). Very watchable, and watching it unfold, dare I say; it's flawless.

A Twitter infographic by Fusework Studios Source Buddymedia published a report of user-engagement from over 320 Twitter profiles managed by various brands, that data was then produced into a digestible infographic by Fuseworks Studios Being a Twitter addict I thought this was a really insightful read and some new data I wasn't aware of. Woot, woot.
