Fujifilm announces infrared X-T1 camera for fine art and crime scenes

Many digital cameras can be modified to shoot infrared photography — regular cameras come with a sensor filter to block out the unwanted wavelengths of light, which aren't desirable for typical photos. It's possible, if often difficult, to remove these filters, but many people settle for adding external filters to their lenses, which block out all but the infrared portion of the spectrum and require very long exposures as a result. By making the X-T1 IR infrared-capable from the start, Fujifilm is providing a neat solution for those who want to shoot infrared photos out of the box.

Space telescopes help search for aliens, dark matter and the beginning of time - CNET

The Hubble Space Telescope has given us so much, but it's getting old, in telescope years. It turned 25 this year, and has been visited four times for servicing, the most recent of which was in 2009. From this point, it will continue to operate until its systems fail. In 2018, NASA plans to launch the James Webb Space Telescope to work alongside, then replace it. The James Webb Space Telescope will have a mirror 6.5 metres in diameter, compared to the Hubble's 2.4 metres.

Better, stronger, sleepier: Fitness tech and me - CNET

So, what happened? Well, I started this in the depths of Aussie winter, dragging myself out of bed confused and blinking into the cold air, to watch a 30-minute TV show while climbing a fake hill and asking myself "Why"? For the first week or so I would get back into bed around 4 a.m. and lie there, not fully awake, but nowhere near sleep, until about 6 a.m., when I'd manage a fitful extra hour of sleep that made me feel even more exhausted. The Jawbone told the sad story: I was getting less sleep than ever and it was awful.
