Often derided as a blot on rural landscapes, wind turbines got bigger and stronger than ever anyway. The next generation are even larger and designed to withstand an Arctic battering.
It's one of 10 innovations to win a 2016 Invention Award
Japan's first stealth fighter jet successfully took to the skies on Friday as the country joins a select group of world military powers wielding the radar-dodging technology.
Sometimes even the most simple everyday items can benefit from a little bit of outside the box thinking. Take the humble flower pot - it might seem like a perfectly functional solution to growing plants inside the home, but isn't there a better way
Many aerial drones now feature a Follow Me mode – that's where they can be instructed to autonomously fly along above you and shoot video as you ski, cycle, run or otherwise move about. However, what happens if you're a scuba diver? Well, in the ne

With high conductivity and a large surface area, nanowires have become quite the candidate for an advanced battery material. But at thousands of times thinner than a human hair, their delicate nature often causes them to fracture throughout the batte
The world's hottest startup isn't located in Silicon Valley--it's in suburban Florida. KEVIN KELLY explores what Magic Leap's mind-bending technology tells us about the future of virtual reality.
Using a powerful electric force emitted by a Tesla coil, scientists at Rice University have made carbon nanotubes self-assemble to form a circuit linking two LEDs and then used the energy from that same field to power them.
On a microscopic level, heat is simply atoms vibrating off one another, in constant motion.
Apple's move to encrypt your iPhone and WhatsApp's rollout of end-to-end encrypted messaging have generated plenty of privacy applause and law enforcement controversy. But more quietly, a small non-profit project has enacted a plan to encrypt the
It's been a few weeks since Tesla Motors introduced the Model 3, but the company isn't forgetting its top seller. Musk & Co. announced a handful of changes to the Model S, the gorgeous electric luxury sedan they introduced in 2012.
The Air ditches the water jet for what appears to be a jet turbine engine, and allows him to fly untethered through the sky to a maximum height of 10,000 feet and a maximum endurance of 10 minutes. (ahhhh,... No Freaking Way!!!)
Funding Bitcoin development seems to have always been problematic.
SpaceX has a pretty good track record when it comes to launching stuff into into space (an explosion last summer notwithstanding). It's less good at landing those rockets (or as Indiana Jones once memorably put it: "Fly? Yes. Land? No").
Up to this point, the main way to judge support for a change to Bitcoin's consensus rules has been miner voting. Miners are able to broadcast support for changes to the Bitcoin protocol via coinbase transactions, and these messages of support are t
Most of us grew up imagining VR as first-person simulations. Whether it was trading virtual gunfire, exploring fantastic worlds you'd never see in real life or chatting with people who only exist inside a computer, the VR of our dreams was always a f
The piston skirt and pin account for about 17 percent of the frictional loss in a combustion engine as they are the most difficult to keep lubricated and have the largest contact surfaces.
MIT researchers have discovered a way to maximize the efficiency of solar panels, effectively producing up to 20 times the solar output of traditional flat panels with the same surface area.
The foldable smartphone that Samsung's been working on for the last few years could become a reality soon.
(NaturalNews) Engineers have said that the day of carbon-free, unlimited energy is coming, and a French company just took a step toward that goal.
Tesla will unveil its long-awaited, much-anticipated Model 3 mass-market vehicle in Los Angeles next week.
