The 2017 US Department of Energy Solar Decathlon has come to a close in Denver. The competition tasks students with building prototype solar-powered houses and awards points based on categories including architecture, engineering, and innovation. This year's winner blends green design with a plan to encourage the surrounding community to get together and discuss ways to use less energy. ..C
There's a ton of tags, Tiles and trackers to attach to those items that are always vanishing around the house, but most of them are Bluetooth-enabled, so they aren't much good if you leave them on a bus. Samsung has announced plans to jump into the tracker game with the Connect Tag, which uses a cellular connection to get a GPS readout on lost items, pets and even kids, essentially anywhere t
Drone promise to cut a lot of corners when it comes to delivering items, but that may prove particularly important when it comes to providing urgent medical attention. We are seeing this play out in Africa with the airborne delivery of blood samples, and another example involves treatment of heart attacks. Startup Flirtey is working on a system where defibrillators are carried by drone direct
The most intense laser in the world will soon become twice as intense, thanks to a US$2 million upgrade from the National Science Foundation. The Hercules laser at the University of Michigan currently fires a beam with the power of 300 terawatts (TW), but by replacing certain outdated components that could be bumped up to a possible 1,000 TW. With that kind of power, the laser could lead to a
There was a tinge of sadness about this year's MotorClassica Show in Melbourne. MotorClassica is to Australia as Retromobile is to France and Techno Classica is to Germany, being the celebration of a 120 year-old automotive culture. The well curated annual event ran from October 13-15, 2017 and provided a wonderful perspective through which to view the passing of an industry dear to Australia
After letting the DB11 coupe build some momentum and launch in AMG-V8 spec, Aston Martin has pulled the curtains back on the DB11 Volante. The Volante lives at that same special juncture of muscular aggression and sensual curvaceousness, only lets a bit more air flow through the driver's hair. And with a 503-hp 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 at the helm, not even the hardiest coiffure is safe...Cont
Last year the FDA approved an artificial pancreas for general use. The technology is designed to automatically monitor and inject insulin as needed, in patients with type 1 diabetes. Now a team at Harvard has developed an even more sophisticated system than connects to a patient's smartphone and learns their habits so a person's glucose levels are kept within a certain healthy range...Continu
What is it with delivery drones and burritos? The Burrito Bomber was one of a very early drone delivery concepts to emerge back in 2012, then last year Google began bringing Chipotle burritos to students of Virginia Tech. Now the tech giant will start using experimental aircraft to drop off tightly wrapped tubes of rice 'n' beans to folk in rural Australia, as it looks to step up its drone de
When Canon introduced its G1 X in 2012, it boasted that the camera was top of the food chain for image quality in the kingdom of compact point-and-shoots. The second generation that followed in 2014 seemed a rather modest upgrade, but the third and latest model is clearly designed to impress. The flagship PowerShot G1 X Mark III is the first of the company's point-and-shoot cameras to be trea
Bike racks that mount on your vehicle's trailer hitch may be handy, but they can certainly make it difficult to access the rear hatch – particularly when they're loaded with bikes. While some such racks do fold down or swing to one side, Saris' new Glide takes a different approach. As its name implies, it just kinda "glides" back out of the way...Continue Reading Hatch-access bicycle rack use
