Someday soon, hospital patients won’t be hooked up to wires and monitors -- instead, electronic patches will be temporarily tattooed onto their bodies. Doctors will be able to monitor their vital signs without poking and prodding
M55’s Terminus is an imposing, uncanny $35,000 contraption which looks and works unlike any bike I’ve ever seen.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation is planning to test agents about their understanding of the bureau’s surveillance guidelines, a move coming more than a year after the Justice Department discovered widespread cheating on the exam.
The jet fighter of the future could fire lasers, evade radars and heat-detecting sensors, and slip software viruses into enemy computer networks. All this while flying farther and more often, and using less gas.
The on-again, off-again story of the super-sexy Cadillac Converj is on again.
NOAA, a federal agency that focuses on the condition of the oceans and atmosphere, said a severe solar storm could cause global disruptions in GPS systems, power grids, satellite communications, and airline communications.
The whole of London is taking stock after outbreaks of violence and looting across the capital. So what has the humble BlackBerry got anything to do with it?
San Francisco startup Mission Motors made a little history when factory rider Steve Rapp lapped Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in 1 minute, 31.3 seconds. That number is amazing for several reasons.
The Pentagon has been working for nearly a decade on an audacious plan to strike anywhere on the planet in less than an hour. Wednesday could prove to be the do-or-die moment for that plan.
