The field of nanotechnology is still in its nascent stages, but recent innovations are increasingly making this science fiction world of tiny robots into a reality. New breakthrough research from a team at Caltech has demonstrated the ability of a robot made of a single strand of DNA to explore a molecular surface, pick up targeted molecules, and move them to another designated location...Con
Electric cars might get a lot of the fanfare, but when it comes to cutting CO2 emissions bigger electrified vehicles will also have an important part to play. Daimler is intent on playing some role in this green transformation, its latest move being to introduce the Mitsubishi Fuso eCanter in the US, describing it as the first series production all-electric truck...Continue Reading Daimler br
Lockheed Martin has revealed its Outrider canister drone at the Defence and Security Equipment International (DSEI) in London. The lightweight, canister-launched unmanned aircraft system (UAS) is only 10 cm (4 in) wide, weighs only 1.7 kg (3.8 lb), yet can reach speeds of 50 knots (58 mph, 93 km/h) and has greater endurance and payload capacity than comparable drones...Continue Reading Lockhe
Rendering things invisible sounds like it belongs in the realm of Harry Potter, but it is technically possible. Researchers from TU Wien in Austria have developed a new process that allows light waves to pass right through a material by projecting a matching wave pattern onto it, actively camouflaging the target from view. The technique could one day be used as a kind of invisibility cloak, a
Implementing a real-world Hyperloop will be a huge undertaking, one that nobody, not even Elon Musk, can do on their own. Transport company Hyperloop One is well aware of this, and that's why it launched its own XPrize-style competition to draw out the globe's brightest ideas for the most promising Hyperloop routes. The company has today announced the 10 winners, with potential routes spannin
Self-driving cars aren't quite the novelty they once were, but what about self-delivering cars? That's the question that Swedish technology firm Semcon is trying to answer with the Born to Drive project. It uses new software to take existing cars and turn them into self-drive vehicles that can steer themselves off the assembly line and through the transportation chain without a human driver..
In developing nations, it can be very difficult for people to get to health care facilities on a frequent basis. This means that if someone is getting vaccinations that require multiple injections to be administered over multiple days, they often won't get them all. A solution may be on the way, however – scientists at MIT have created a system that allows many doses of medicine to be deliver
Someday in the not-too-distant future, getting rid of those unwanted "love handles" may be as easy as applying skin patches to your lower abdomen. In experiments on obese mice, researchers from Columbia University Medical Center and the University of North Carolina have successfully used such patches to slim the creatures down...Continue Reading Could a skin patch melt away unwanted fat?Categ
Kia is exploring new waters in Frankfurt this year, experimenting with how its Cee'd family could birth a new member. The Proceed Concept extends the roofline on its Pro Cee'd hot hatch, creating a sleek, sporty interpretation of an estate.
