In March, we were telling you about Tesla Motors’ new development, a new battery that could take your home off the grid and eliminate one of the major problems associated with renewable energy – storing it. Now, Tesla is already rolling out the new generation with some remarkable feature. The coolest one? Liquid cooling!
NASA is preparing to send a drone to Mars by 2024 – they’ve already developed a small, lightweight craft that could conduct aerial surveys and identify potential landing areas and zones of interest.
It can reach 100 km/h (60 mph) in 2 seconds, it has a 700 horsepower engine, it weighs 90% less than traditional cars, it has less emissions and it’s 3D printed – it may very well be the car of the future. Despite technological developments, the automobile industry has remained relatively stagnant in the past few decades. Sure, you have
A group of UK teenages have invented a condom that changes colors and glows if you/he have/has an STD. Aptly named the S.T. EYE, the condom has a built-in chemical detector that detects infections such as chlamydia and syphilis, and lets you (and your partner) know.
Microscopic swirls from gold might be the key to protect your cash and credit cards in the future, making identity theft virtually impossible. Researchers at Vanderbilt University developed the “Archimedes spirals” and report that they produce four times more blue light per unit volume than currently existing frequency amplifiers; they could be printed on currency, ID cards and pretty much everything that’s important to prevent counterfeiting.
It almost looks too futuristic to be true, but the prototype was already developed. London-based ecoLogicStudio has taken this innovative concept and made it a reality at the Milan 2015 Expo. Using only the Sun’s energy, the Algae Folly is the perfect intersection of technology, design… and food.
A simple, cheap device could extend disposable battery life eight-fold; it suits all batteries from AAA to D and it works by keeping its voltage boosted to just above what most appliances consider ‘dead’. The technology was developed by US-based start-up, Batteroo and it’s called a ‘Batteriser’. It basically comprises of a very thin stainless steel sleeve (0.1 mm) that you can clip onto any
A team of researchers from the KTH Royal Institute of Technology and Stanford University has developed a method for making elastic, shock-resistant, high-capacity batteries from wood pulp.
Meet Lily. I think Lily’s pretty awesome – after all, she’s the world’s first throw-and-shoot camera. All you have to do is throw it in the air, and it just starts following you and shooting. It’s waterproof, it’s compact, it can take both HD photos and videos, and it lands in your hand after flying up to 20 minutes.. Check out
It’s common sense – in order to brush your teeth, you need water, a toothbrush, and toothpaste. Well, a company from Japan wants to change all that: they’ve developed a nanotechnology toothbrush that basically eliminates the need for toothpaste.
