So we thought why not create a brand that picks up from that and can be translated into our designs.&quot;</p> <p>Andrew: &quot;Moving into the fashion space enabled us to use our creativity in other industries as well. For example, tech brands, such as HTC, Sennheiser, and obviously, Pioneer, started coming to us to create designs for them.&quot;</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> What was your thought process behind the Pioneer designer headset? </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Kenny: &quot;Pioneer is all about breakthrough technology, and we&rsquo;re all about breakthrough design. We want to lead in our industry and break as much ground just as they do in theirs. It&rsquo;s also all about our similar ideas of not being followers.&quot;</p> <p>Andrew: &quot;The thing that I find in common with Pioneer is to not think and go all out in the designs. We experimented with studs, leather, and chains, and Pioneer did not restrict any of our creative process, which we loved. Creativity in any industry should not be constrained.&quot;</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="567" height="425" title="Depression wants fashion to be a part of tech. starting with Pioneer" alt="Depression wants fashion to be a part of tech. starting with Pioneer" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/headphones_2.jpg?1401242430" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> How does Depression’s design fit into tech? </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Kenny: &quot;We focus on the &ldquo;dark natural&rdquo; side of things. Using designs such as the black beetle or black rose, we target the &ldquo;evil twin&rdquo; side of any person. I think it&rsquo;s a psychological process to purchase, which is also what tech does &ndash; use psychological power to appeal to people.&quot;</p> <p>Andrew: &quot;Tech is no longer restricted to tech geeks anymore. It is worn on a person, and has become part of his/her lifestyle, very much like a fashion accessory. Tech is now big in fashion and people want it to complement their personality and the clothes they wear.&quot; &nbsp;</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-3"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> If you could change one piece of tech to make it look better, what would that be? </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Kenny: &quot;It will definitely be the overhead projector &ndash; it&rsquo;s mostly mounted on the ceiling and sticks out like a sore point.

The Kuro range of plasmas offered such detail, such contrast and such deep, dark black levels that they could reduce a 33-year-old single man to tears of pure joy in less than ten seconds. But despite the Kuro plasmas offering picture quality that was objectively years ahead of their rivals, nobody bought them, because they could snap up inferior (but still decent) TVs from the likes of Samsung and LG at a fraction of the cost. So eventually Pioneer cut its losses and stopped making TVs altogether. It was a sad day for those 33-year-old men. It was a sad day for us all.</p> <p>Well, now the Pioneer name is coming back to TVs. Dixons has announced that it’ll be selling full HD Pioneer-branded models in 40, 46 and 50in sizes in Scandinavia from December.</p> <p>But before you get excited, consider a couple of things: these TVs aren’t Kuros. In fact they aren’t even plasmas – they’re LCDs. Pioneer sold its plasma business and patents to Panasonic years ago, and this partnership with Dixon is almost certainly a marketing exercise from the retailer rather than a reason to celebrate. Should they launch in SG, we’ll be looking carefully at the new Pioneer sets to see if they deserve the name on the front.

The Moscow metro has installed a ‘squat booth’ (our name, not theirs) in one station that tasks commuters with performing 30 squats in two minutes. If they succeed, they’re rewarded with a single-journey ticket (normal value: about 60p).</p> <p>It’s all part of the Russian Olympic Committee’s campaign to bring ‘Olympic values’ to everyday life in the country ahead of next February’s events.
