What you see here is the titanium blue PS3 that's set to hit Japan on November 25. Part of a Gran Turismo 5 bundle, there's no word on whether or not American gamers will get a chance to purchase one of these colorful consoles.

Hack turns Kinect into 3D video capture too

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2441 days, 13 hours, 16 minutes ago
Wednesday, November 17, 2010 9:25:12 AM GMT
We all knew this would inevitably happen, but seeing it in action is something else -- the Kinect transformed by the power of open-source drivers into a true 3D video camera for capturing oneself. UC Davis visualization researcher Oliver Kreylos fed the streams from his peripheral's infrared and color cameras into a custom program that interpolated and reconstructed the result, generating a mildly mindblowing 3D virtual reality environment he can manipulate at will.

Whoa, what's this? Apple just updated its homepage with a new splash screen teasing an "exciting announcement from iTunes" at 10AM ET tomorrow, saying that "Tomorrow is just another day. That you'll never forget." All streaming subscription service based out of that North Carolina data center? More video content in the store? Apps for the Apple TV with the iOS 4.2 update? The Beatles? Whatever it is, we're digging for more, and we'll let you know as soon as we find out. (more)
