After some time honing its craft in the realm of electric skateboards, Boosted has welcomed a different kind of vehicle into its lineup. The Boosted Rev is the company's first foray into the world of folding electric scooters, and after a little of hands-on time ahead of today's launch, we think it might just tick a few boxes for those looking for a new way to get around town...

While some people might say that electronic devices have no business being on camping trips, the fact is that items such as LED lanterns, GPS units, two-way radios and cameras all have batteries that need charging. The Giga is designed to meet that need, using the power of the wind... Continue Reading Giga takes campsite device-charging for a spin Category: Outdoors Tags: Camping
Lubricating your bike's chain can be a messy and wasteful business, as excess oil drips off the chain and onto the ground.

on view at R & company, the credenzas, cabinets and boxes may appear simplistically elegant at first glance, but each possess a surprising element. The post sebastian errazuriz exhibits transformable ‘mechanical cabinets’ that whirl, rotate, and spin appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
For both skydivers and astronauts, going into a spin can be a fatal mistake, so engineering firm Draper is working on an anti-spin device to bring them automatically back to stability. Using a network of sensors and Control Moment Gyroscopes (CMGs), the new system detects a dangerous rotation and generates a counter-torque to cancel it out...

The Earth's spin isn't as consistent as it may seem. In fact, it naturally drifts and wobbles on its axis over time, and that's generally chalked up to the way mass is distributed and redistributed across the planet's surface. Now, NASA scientists studying data gathered across the entire 20th century have identified three broad processes that play a part... Continue Reading NASA study unco
Last year, Dethleffs shook up the motorhome world when it debuted the E.Home concept, an all-electric motorhome covered in solar panels.

If you're building a spacecraft that's going to be landing on a planet that has an atmosphere, then you'd better equip it with a heat shield. Although some approaches to such shields can be heavy and/or complex, a University of Manchester PhD student has developed one that's simple, cheap and lightweight...

There've been a lot of options for toy drones over the years, and you may think that they're all pretty much the same. At first glance, that's understandable since they typically lack the premium features you find on more prosumer level drones, like 4K cameras. That's why I appreciate what Spin Master is doing with the new Air Hogs Supernova. I've covered Spin Master products
In a modern sci-fi take on a decorating classic, MB&F has come up with an updated mechanical version of the desk weather station that the company calls The Fifth Element.
