Apple Watch debut in Paris attracts more fanboys than fashionistas

The Apple Watch went on display this morning at Colette, a high-end Paris boutique that consistently attracts swarms of the hipper-than-thou. The event marked the first time that the watch has been shown to the public since company CEO Tim Cook unveiled it at a media event in California earlier this month, though it remained a decidedly hands-off affair. The watches were kept behind glass displays on the ground floor of the store, and visitors were not allowed to touch them.

Yet the chance…

Parkour group brings ‘Assassin’s Creed’ to life in Paris

Assassin’s Creed has always made it easy to pull off incredible acrobatic moves with little more than a tap of a button, but those video game leaps are nothing compared to seeing real parkour practitioners weave their way through the urban jungle. Just in time for Comic Con, developer Ubisoft has sponsored a new parkour video to promote its upcoming Assassin’s Creed: Unity, which takes the series to the French Revolution. Four French practitioners, dressed up as “Assassins,” bring a moment from the game to life on the streets of Paris as they chase down a couple of guards. The acrobatic feats may be a bit gratuitous, but it sure is fun to watch.

Forget jetliners, the Paris Air Show means war (video)

Forget jetliners, the Paris Air Show means war

There’s a battle going on between Airbus and Boeing, but while both industry players maintain their fair share of government contracts, this war primarily concerns the commercial side of the biz. For many of the companies that surround these giants at this week’s Paris Air Show, however, military might is big business. Fighter jets, troop transporters, attack drones and massive missiles are the bread and butter of manufacturers like US-based Raytheon and France’s own Thales — smaller companies from China, Germany, Israel and Russia flaunt their own munitions at otherwise ordinary trade show booths, too.

High-profile politicians and military officers from around the world are also in no short supply at Le Bourget Airport this week. In one exhibition hall, we spotted Lieutenant General Craig Franklin, a top US Air Force commander, studying a new security screening system from Safran. Then, earlier today, we stumbled upon Sergey Shoygu, Russia’s Minister of Defence, examining a handful of mobile rocket launchers. And just after yesterday’s Airbus A350 cockpit tour, we bumped into a gaggle of Chinese officers as they were checking out model attack choppers at the Eurocopter booth.

Troops from dozens of countries around the globe were in attendance, often dressed up in full military regalia despite the oppressive summer heat. Allies and enemies alike joined together to take note of the latest and greatest, scanning ground displays and taking in dramatic performances a few hundred feet above the sweltering tarmac. You don’t need to rough it at Le Bourget to see this year’s displays, though. We’ve collected many of the 2013 Paris Air Show’s deadliest crafts in the gallery just below.

Luxury game controller is hand assembled in Paris, overkill everywhere else

Feeling ostentatious, are we? This luxury game controller (yes, you read that right) is hand assembled in a Parisian workshop and features a lacquered oak wood joystick, ostrich leather covering, and electronics courtesy of Sanwa. We have no idea how much this will cost (and we’re quite frankly afraid to ask) although we should know when this becomes available on the 18th of this month. Compatible with the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC, it’s being brought to the world by a French company called Hoon. Hit the source link to start wasting money.
