With the news that Apple's latest iPhones are going to support wireless charging, the tech is back in the spotlight, but it still has its limitations. You still need to find a powered mat or disc to put your phone down on, it's not easy to charge several devices at once and it's not easy to use them while they're being charged. Pi promises mat-free top ups within range of the cone-shaped wireless charging station, and support for juicing up multiple devices at once.

Wireless system transmits both power and data simultaneously

Tue, 19 Sep 2017 08:33:04 +0000

(image)

We're used to receiving data wirelessly, over Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or cellular networks – our smartphones simply wouldn't work without it. Wireless power is also starting to make its way into devices, but it's being held back by a short range. Now, researchers from North Carolina State University (NCSU) have developed a system that can combine the two, wirelessly transmitting both data and power simultaneously from a distance.

Animal, vegetable or mineral? Strange fossil's identity finally confirmed

Tue, 19 Sep 2017 06:23:54 +0000

(image)

Dickinsonia was a strange, segmented organism that lived during the Ediacaran period, some 550 million years ago. But just what kind of lifeform it was has been a mystery: was it an animal, a fungus, a lichen, or even a completely different class of organism with no modern counterparts? A new British study offers substantial evidence that the creature was indeed an animal, and previous beliefs about how it grew have been flipped on their head.

Why haven't we evolved immortality? The answer is in our genes

Tue, 19 Sep 2017 03:11:02 +0000

(image)

If evolution works by selecting for the most advantageous genes, it begs the question: why haven't we evolved immortality? According to a decades-old hypothesis, certain genes that promote reproductive success also promote aging later in life, and now a study from Johannes Gutenberg University has identified some of these genes. The team also found that switching off those genes dramatically extended the lifespan of worms.

Hyundai i30 SR Premium: Warm, but in the best way

Tue, 19 Sep 2017 01:06:47 +0000

Hyundai is on the charge at the moment. Once the purveyor of disappointment at bargain basement prices, the company is consistently delivering cars with the looks, gear and drive to rival the Europeans. It even has a proper hot hatch on the way! But the i30 N isn't quite ready, which means the warmed-over i30 SR maintains its status as king of the hill in Hyundai hatchback land. Is it a worthy flagship?

Back in 2015, we first heard about the Prynt Case – an iPhone case that printed instant photos which were taken with the phone's camera. Although it was a Kickstarter project at the time, it's since become a product you can actually buy. Now, its makers have released a more compact model, known as the Prynt Pocket. We recently got our hands on a nice minty green one, and gave it a try.

Parrot gives Bebop 2 a Power boost

Mon, 18 Sep 2017 13:13:30 +0000

France's Parrot has today announced an upgrade to its already pretty capable Bebop 2 drone, the Bebop 2 Power. The built-in camera seems about the same as the previous model, but as its name suggests, this flavor has been given a power boost. Pilots can now get an hour's worth of flight time, though that will need to be split into two sessions. Still, up to 60 minutes in the air with only one stop to hotswap the battery ain't too shabby.

Digging up materials and hauling them around mining sites is inherently dirty work, but it is set to get a little cleaner on the back of a heavy duty electric vehicle currently under development. Some time in the next few months, the Komatsu HD 605-7 will start carting materials down from a Swiss mountain powered by a mammoth 4.5-ton battery pack, making it the largest electric vehicle in the world.

Renault's Symbioz concept gives plausibility a back seat

Mon, 18 Sep 2017 01:47:03 +0000

(image)

The Symbioz was Renault's hero show car at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show and it went one brave step further than most concept cars in that it was proposed together with a house as a complete system. Sadly, the premise behind the concept, that people would take a car into their home ... is seriously flawed.
