Mark Ellis' slightly-unsettling creation, the 'Playa Crawler' is making the rounds on DIY and maker subreddits.
. Using knowledge learned informally from engineers he had worked with, he came up with a production process that mixes sand with shredded plastic and red oxide to make one-square foot pavement blocks.
(Natural News) Most parents insist that their children wear sunglasses for a day at the beach, but they give little thought to allowing kids to damage their eyes using electronic devices. In fact, some experts say that using cell phones, TVs and tabl
It shouldn't be surprising that we see such cost-saving technologies in orthodontics
As if developing a world-beating hypercar and futuristic, show-stopping concept car isn't enough, Aston Martin has also been busying itself designing a cutting-edge submarine.
Experts from the University of Exeter have developed a pioneering new technique that uses nanoengineering technology to incorporate graphene into traditional concrete production.
There is a borderland between waking life and the uncharted wilderness of sleep that we all traverse each night, but we rarely stop to marvel at the strangeness of this liminal world. If we do, we find that it is full of hallucinations both wonderful
new research from the University of New Hampshire will make computers the size of a pinhead a reality sooner than once thought.
MIT has combined a roll-to-roll approach -- a common industrial approach for continuous processing of thin foils -- with the common graphene-fabrication technique of chemical vapor deposition, to manufacture high-quality graphene in large quantitie
Among the almost limitless use cases for commercial-scale graphene is filtration. MIT engineers say they've now developed a scalable production process for precisely tailored graphene filtration membranes, which could see action in desalination, biol
For the last 10 months, Houston police have been testing cutting-edge technology that could potentially get criminals off the streets faster.
It may be called "Glampervan," but this San Francisco company doesn't build the most luxurious camper van out there. Its Promaster MUV (multi-use vehicle) is all about getting the most fun out of both the ride and the destination, and what it lacks i
Scientists have developed a surgical glue that can seal wounds in 60 seconds.
In 2016, Airbus launched its own moonshot-style project. Its Silicon Valley-based innovation group, known as A³, set out to build a fully modular airplane that could be customized with plug-in modules ranging from cafes to gyms. If airlines could ca
You probably haven't heard of Paul Elio - probably because his car company hasn't been the recipient of your tax dollars, nor the prostrate fawning-over of an adulatory press . . . unlike another car company headed by someone with name recognit
Researchers from the USA, University of Bonn and the research institute Caesar in Bonn have used nanostructures to construct a tiny machine that constitutes a rotatory motor and can move in a specific direction. The researchers used circular structur
US is funding $400-600 million for each of three exascale supercomputers to be delivered by 2022
and stronger...(Natural News) Insulating materials such as styrofoam and certain types of plastics are certainly useful in many applications, but some of their properties make them a problem for the environment. For this reason, scientists are always
A system, based on relatively new high-surface-area materials called metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), can extract potable water from even the driest of desert air, the researchers say, with relative humidities as low as 10 percent.
SpaceX has launched a small satellite provided by the Surrey Space Center known as RemoveDEBRIS that will be deployed through an airlock in the Japanese Kibo module and released into space by the laboratory's Japanese robot arm.
Apple Inc. is working on touchless gesture control and curved screens for future iPhones, projects that may help the company differentiate its most-important product in an increasingly crowded market, according to people with knowledge of the matter.
(Natural News) Graphene has been the subject of a number of breakthrough discoveries over the past two decades. Now, a group of researchers from Vanderbilt University has found yet another one to add to the ever-growing list. Graphene is said to be a
