Radiohead's PolyFauna game deemed 'experimental collaboration'
Prolific UK band Radiohead has announced the release of app they have created in collaboration with Universal Everything, entitled PolyFauna. An experimental game, frontman Thom Yorke says the app was "...born out of The King of Limbs sessions and using the imagery and the sounds from the song 'Bloom.'" PolyFauna aims to envision "an interest in early computer life-experiments and the imagined creatures of our subconscious," with players being able to create worm-like constructs with a finger swipe. Available for Android devices on Google Play and iOS devices through iTunes, PolyFauna is free.
WaterField's Rough Rider leather messenger-style laptop bag holds 13-inch laptop
Waterfield Designs has announced its latest tech accessory, the Rough Rider leather messenger bag. Its adjustable strap system compresses bag contents to maintain a slim, neat profile and stable position on the body. The bag's main compartment can house a 13-inch laptop or tablet, with room for other contents such as charging cables and file folders. Additionally included in its composition are two waxed canvas pockets alongside the main compartment, and another two pockets that are lined with scratch-free material, ideal for a small tablet or smartphone. The Rough Rider's flap snaps securely shut with two option to adjust, based on the bulk of what is inside. Color accent options are available in black, copper, 'pine', 'grass','flame' and 'pearl', to accompany the brown, naturally-tanned leather. Priced at $340, the Rough Rider is available for pre-order now, with shipping beginning February 28.
