The Android 4.0 ICS update marathon for the non-Nexus devices has just begun. HTC drew first blood and started seeding the latest edition of the Google OS to its Sensation XE former flagship. Also included in the package is an updated Sense UI, carrying the version number 3.6.

So far, we’ve received confirmation of the Android 4.0 update being seeded to Sensation XE units in Germany and the Nordic countries, but we expect the rest of Europe to follow soon. Global availability can’t be far away too, knowing the HTC usual practices.

You can check if the update is available for your region under Software Updates in the Settings menu. Keep in mind that the update requires a download of a file nearly 300MB in size, so you better use a Wi-Fi connection for it.

If yours isn’t among the lucky units to have the update already and you don’t feel like waiting, you can follow this link to the always useful XDA-developers forum to download the files and flash it yourselves.

If Harry Potter had had a whole car instead of just one measly little invisibility cloak, it might have been something like this.

To promote the Mercedes F-Cell’s zero impact on the environment, the company turned one into an invisible car. The tech sorcery involved modding an F-Cell  on both sides with fairly mundane hardware — cameras on the right, to capture the imagery on that side, and tacked-on sheets of LEDs on the left, to display the live feeds. The result is a pretty remarkable illusion.

Of course, I can’t say much for the safety of this thing — how could other drivers avoid you if they can’t see you? — but it’s still immensely cool. If you happen to be in Germany, you might be able to spot the invisible F-Cell as it tours the country. (Or, erm, maybe not.)
