Ikea just figured out how to make movie theaters even cooler

Just going to your favorite movie theater to watch a new release with your friends or family isn’t cool enough, Ikea Russia apparently believes, so the company figured out a way to significantly improve your whole movie experience. Sure, Ikea had to promote some of its furniture in the process — after all, that’s its bread and butter — but the company still managed to make movies a lot better in the kind of cinema it imagined.

This Ikea desk takes working from home to a whole new level

Swedish furniture company Ikea has come up with an interesting desk design called Bekant, which might make working from home, or at the office, even more fun and possibly more productive. Aware that sitting at a desk for hours at a time without proper breaks for standing up isn’t exactly healthy, Ikea has decided to offer buyers the best from both worlds with a single desk, the Bekant, which comes with a handy height adjusting mechanism.

Virtual Reality will allow this man to live someone else’s life for a month

Virtual reality is getting better and better, with companies such as Facebook, Samsung, Google and others growing more interested in offering such entertainment options to customers in the future. But one artist is already determined to push his limits and experiment virtual reality in a completely different way — and he’s looking for your help to make it possible.

Mark Farid wants to wear a VR headset for 28 days and experience life events as lived by another person. To make it possible, he needs to raise £150,000 (around $234,557) on Kickstarter in the coming month.

Yes, someone has finally built Marty McFly’s auto-lacing shoes

Back to the Future fans are surely familiar with Marty McFly’s special auto-lacing shoes from the future, and many of them may have been dreaming about wearing them one day. Interestingly, as we’re getting closer to 2015, the year when Marty arrives in the future, a company is getting ready to launch the first shoes with auto-lacing capabilities — and while the Powerlace P-One shoes look nothing like the sneakers in the movie, they certainly seem able to get the job done.

Apple CEO Tim Cook

Everything you need to know about Apple CEO Tim Cook

Everything you need to know about Apple CEO Tim Cook

What is it about the chief executive officer role of a technology company that seems to attract such peculiar personalities? Even years after his untimely passing, Steve Jobs is still a regular topic of discussion in the tech world, prompting books, movies and parodies that have attempted to encapsulate his volatile, fascinating persona.

But in his stead, a different kind of CEO has taken over at Apple. Tim Cook is one of the most private people in the industry, separating his personal life from his public life as often as he possibly can, but Adam Lashinsky’s 2012 book Inside Apple was one of the first to delve a little deeper into who Cook really is.

You have to check out these never-before-seen photos of Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs lived a fascinating life, one which has been documented repeatedly by writers and filmmakers since his passing, but despite all the stories and all the footage which has already been released, there are still artifacts from Jobs’ life which have yet to be uncovered. Nearly thirty years ago, when Steve Jobs was let go from Apple, he started a new company: NeXT Computer.

He gave Doug Menuez, a documentary photographer, unlimited access to the company. Thirty years later, Menuez wrote a book about his experience. More →

Tim Cook Comes Out Reactions

Here is the most idiotic reaction to Tim Cook coming out as gay

Here is the most idiotic reaction to Tim Cook coming out as gay

When Tim Cook came out as gay on Thursday, the reaction from fellow tech leaders and from most politicians was largely positive. We knew that not everyone would react this way, however, and sure enough The Washington Post has cataloged some of the more idiotic reactions to Cook coming out. While some of the reactions were fairly predictable — really, who didn’t think the American Family Association’s Bryan Fischer would say something stupid? — the most boneheaded reaction so far actually comes to us from Vitaly Milonov, a Russian member of parliament who wants Cook banned from entering his country for life.
