HBO is going cableless. No subscription needed



You have waited long enough. The time has come for cord cutters to be free of one of the last few obstacles in the way of cableless bliss. HBO’s CEO Richard Plepler has confirmed that the company will start selling a digital version of its service in 2015. The best part is the service won’t require a pay-TV subscription. Seems that Netflix getting all those awards for its shows and building a massive subscriber base is starting to name the network nervous.




“That is a large and growing opportunity that should no longer be left untapped. It is time to remove all barriers to those who want HBO.

“So, in 2015, we will launch a stand-alone, over-the-top, HBO service in the United States. We will work with our current partners.  And, we will explore models with new partners.  All in, there are 80 million homes that do not have HBO and we will use all means at our disposal to go after them.” ~HBO CEO Richard Plepler

Darkside Scientific’s LumiLor Electroluminescent Paint


Darkside Scientific may not be a name you have heard of yet but thanks to word of mouth soon you will. The company created an electroluminescent paint known as LumiLor. What is pretty cool about this paint is that it is completely invisible under lights. However once it is dark it glows brightly with just a flick of a switch. To use the electroluminescent paint you will need custom electronics to control the animations. Darkside Scientific used the LumiLor on a Tesla S to show what the paint is capable of.Darkside Scientific could have just painted it all the same color but they took it an extra step. They added an animated paint job.

Aftermarket junkies will love using Lumilor to bring that extra attention to themselves. Lumilor is a great way to get attention to your personal car, however the bigger picture is that it could be used to generate revenue. Lumilor could be used for advertising in a great way. Imagine a NASCAR night race where they turn off the lights at the start of the race and have cars with the Lumilor do a lap with various marketing on it. The future looks bright for Darkside Scientific and Lumilor.… Read the rest
