Sure, Amazon is focusing on Ultra HD (4K) broadcasts for its upcoming streaming content, but that isn't all that the company has on the agenda. Two months after it began supporting high dynamic range (HDR) in the US, Prime members in the UK now have the chance to watch some Amazon Instant Video shows in more vivid detail.

The folks over at iam8bit have been knocking it out of the park pretty regularly. Earlier this year they released the absolutely gorgeous vinyl edition of the Hotline Miami 2 soundtrack, an equally beautiful video-game world map and during ComicCon the outfit unveiled the limited edition soundtrack for Battletoads on wax. The latest project looks like it could be just as special: a "greatest chips" collection of games and music from the the lovely (and unapologetically difficult) indie series Bit.Trip. While the multi-colored bullseye picture disc and fancy Drew Wise album art are cool enough on their own, it's the digital offerings packed in that are pretty awesome in and of themselves. In addition to the aforementioned accoutrements, the $25 asking price also nets you download codes for each of the seven Bit.Trip games and their full soundtracks. It's a circus of value!

Stephen Colbert has long been a fan of emerging tech, and that's definitely reflected in his early guest list for The Late Show. His second episode (September 9th) will have him once again speaking to Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk, and he'll talk to Uber chief Travis Kalanick the following day. They won't dominate the discussion, but they're a sharp break from the movie stars and musicians that dominated Late Show's schedule in the past. The real question is whether or not you'll glean more insights from these appearances. With certain exceptions, late-night talk shows aren't really a source of tech news. However, Colbert is known to dive a little deeper -- you might just discover something new while you're crashing on the couch.
