Chances are you've heard the talkbox at some point. It usually takes the shape of a floor stomp with a long tube coming from it. The musician puts the free end of this tube in the mouth and alters the sound by changing the shape of the mouth or position of the tongue. Joe Walsh made good use of such a setup for Rock Mountain Way in the early 1970s and 80s big hair rock fans will have exper
Suzuki has released the first images of its upcoming new Jimny 4x4… And it looks like an adorably baby-faced take on a mini G-Wagen. Bug-eyed, tiny and boxy, all it needs is the roof off, four ridiculously goodlooking male models and some orange mocha frappuccinos...

Cancer has a few tricks up its sleeve to defend itself from the body's immune system, but a new therapy designed by researchers at Penn State has now turned one of those tactics against it. The team camouflaged a cancer-killing drug using cells from the tumor itself, allowing them to sneak medicine past the tumor's defenses like a nanoscale Trojan horse and deliver a killing blow from the
Black holes seem to fall into two main categories: relatively small and supermassive. That leaves a huge empty middle ground, and astronomers have long proposed that there must be intermediate-mass black holes (IMBHs) somewhere in between. Now, scientists from the University of New Hampshire have captured the best evidence so far of the existence of these mysterious middleweights, as one e

To make the ubiquitous building material more environmentally friendly, the industry has been adding by-products from coal-fired power plants, but doing so had its own problems. Now, researchers at Rice University have developed a new composite binder that can almost

With technology ripped straight out of the TS050 Hybrid LMP1 car, this "next-generation racehorse" will debut
It was just back in March that German electrical automation company Festo unveiled two of its latest robots inspired by animals – a crawling/rolling spider and a flying fox bat.
