There are various places – such as airports, prisons and military bases – where people aren't allowed to fly consumer drones. If someone does so anyway, it's always possible to shoot the thing down or remotely disable it. Another option, however, is to net it in mid-air, using the new-and-improved DroneCatcher...

E3 delivered relatively little in the way of genuine surprises – the bulk of what was shown was much as we expected. But with plenty of new footage on display there's still plenty to look forward to in the next year or two. Putting aside sequels and familiar intellectual property, here are five that particularly stood out... Continue Reading Punks, pirates, samurai and sharks: The most int
Cars that park themselves can not only make parking mishaps a thing of the past, but they could also make maximum use of lot space. But the auto space isn't the only area where autonomous technology has potential, as recently seen in Nissan's self-parking slippers. Now Volvo has demonstrated a yacht that can dock itself...

In our relatively short time at the top of the food chain, humans have left an impression that will literally last until the Sun swallows the Earth a few billion years from now. But how does our relentless activity impact the creatures we currently share the planet with? A new study has found that mammals across the globe are increasingly turning nocturnal, in a bid to avoid contact with u
In a similar way to the binary code of ones and zeroes that tell a computer program what to do, living cells follow instructions encoded in DNA to construct organisms. It's long been thought that any given DNA sequence would always create the same protein every time a sequence is read out by the cell, but now researchers have found the first exception to this "universal rule," in a species
Antibiotics have saved countless lives for the better part of a century, but these medical marvels may be approaching the end of their usefulness. Thanks to overuse, bacteria are rapidly evolving resistance to our best drugs, prompting scientists to try to develop new ones. Now, a team at Purdue University has found that a compound called F6 is effective at killing bacteria that have alrea
An international team of researchers has successfully regenerated spinal tissue in rat models using a new gene therapy designed to break down scar tissue and allow new nerve cells to grow. The therapy, which used a common antibiotic as the on/off switch to activate the treatment for two months, resulted in rats with spinal injuries relearning complex hand movements...
