A Bathing Ape Bape Soccer Collection – Hundreds of thousands are ascending on Brazil to cheer for their country in the World Cup, and you can bet there are streetwear fans among them. A Bathing Ape (BAPE) unveils their “Bape Soccer” collection that begins with a zip-up track jacket, and moves onto an expansive collection of national-themed polo shirts and T-shirts. The polos and tees come with a national flag superimposed over the BAPE’s general silhouette, along with a couple of athletic details. The collection isn’t original compared to what BAPE has released in their previous World Cup collection, but it still is a nice alternative to the usual soccer jerseys.

DermoScan – Some apps help organize your life, others may get you home after a night of drinking, but the DermoScan can save your life. Dr.George Zouridakis from University of Houston has come up with the DermoScan, and when it is paired up with a $500 magnifying class it can screen for melanoma, that pesky thing that can kill you. The app begins by taking a picture of an odd-shaped mole, and the depth achieved from the accompanying magnifying glass will determine whether the mole is cancerous. The initial run of testing has shown that the DermoScan is 85% effective, and Dr. Zouridakis and his team believe the rate can be even higher. This may not be something you’ll be downloading to your phone just yet, but it does offer a wonderous perspective of what technology has become.
