Of all the pieces of pop culture "spy gear" that have been dreamed up over the years, one of the most iconic is the 2-way wristwatch radio used by comic-strip detective Dick Tracy. Well, if a just-launched Indiegogo campaign is successful, you'll soon be able to get one that actually makes calls...

While research is booming in the field of ingestible medical implants, a major challenge still to be overcome is working out how to power these tiny devices when they are deep inside a human body. Traditional batteries are large, contain toxic chemicals, and need to be periodically replaced, but new research from MIT and Brigham and Women's Hospital has demonstrated a way to power implante
Hollow clay bricks form the gridded facade of this faculty building at a university in the Polish city of Katowice, providing privacy and shade to the interiors while still allowing light to enter. Read more
Firmware Friday has arrived once more, and this week we bring news from Nikon, Olympus, Ricoh / Pentax, Panasonic, Sigma and Sony. The majority of the changes made by all of these companies are bug fixes this time around, but a few tweaked features can be found amongst the mix, as well. Without any further ado, let's get right down to it! We'll start off this week with the cameras, then
To look through space is to look through time, so getting a glimpse of the early days of the universe is a matter of peering deeper and deeper into space. Now, astronomers from MIT and Arizona State University have peered right back to the "Cosmic Dawn" – the time when the first stars were beginning to fire up – by picking up an extremely faint radio signal that marks the earliest evidence of
it's like 1964, but with smartphone connectivity. The post little bluetooth speaker carries on the radical dream of radio caroline appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
If an electronic device containing sensitive information were to fall into the wrong hands, it would be good if there were a way of remotely disabling it. That's why scientists from Cornell University and Honeywell Aerospace have developed a method of vaporizing electronic circuits, without laying a hand on the actual device...Continue Reading Circuits self-destruct in response to radio waves
As consumer drones have become more commonplace, so too have concerns that owners might be tempted to use them for snooping. Researchers have now developed a way to uncover such activity, coming up with a way to intercept a drone's radio signals and tell whether it's been filming things that it shouldn't...Continue Reading Intercepting radio signals can reveal if a drone is spying on youCateg
Incredibly powerful but gone in a flash, mysterious signals known as Fast Radio Bursts (FRBs) are regularly detected in all corners of the sky. A repeating signal known as FRB 121102 was already the weirdest one out there, but now an international team of astronomers has found that this oddball is even odder than previously thought. The radio waves from FRB 121102 are being "twisted" to an ex
One of the world's most powerful radio telescopes is back online months after sustaining hurricane damage. The 1,000-ft (305-m) Arecibo Observatory only received minor structural damage when Hurricane Maria made landfall on the island of Puerto Rico on September 20, but the commercial electrical grid needed to power the giant antenna was only recently re-established. Though it resumed radio o is a social bookmarking place where you can share, find & discuss the best news around on most topics.
