HTC’s RE camera hasn’t exactly been the blowout hit, and at least a few times over the last several months we’ve seen it as low as $100 brand-new.

There is a whole mess of LED and smart lighting options on the market today from traditional retailers and startup companies. Aside from saving energy and adding smart functionality, the ability to put out a custom color is one of the biggest selling points of these bulbs.

This is where Silk by Saffron comes in: a recent Kickstarter campaign that is setting out to combine the functionality of smart light bulbs with the ability to change the warmth or coolness depending on the time of day. Our bodies work better with certain color lights throughout the day. Cooler lights give us energy in the morning and warmer colors prepare for sleep at night.

But how Silk is doing it combines all that knowledge with smart functionality, creating a really cool solution to this unique problem. expand full story

Rockstar has released an official iOS companion app today for the highly anticipated Grand Theft Auto V console title set for release tomorrow. The app, called Grand Theft Auto: iFruit, will let users stay up to date on the latest GTA news, launch other Rockstar Games apps, and sign in to the Rockstar Games Social Club.
