Hands-on: YI Technology hopes its budget M1 can be a big deal

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 17:57:34 +0000

(image)

When, through the corner of our eye, we spotted what looked like a Leica T on the YI Technology stand at Photokina, we were intrigued. But on closer inspection we realized the camera, which was surrounded by the firm's action cameras, was in fact YI's own new budget mirrorless shooter. At that point we were even more intrigued and had to have a quick play with it.

Cancer cells' stealth mechanism uncovered

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 15:29:42 +0000

(image)

When a malignant tumor invades the body, immune cells rush to the site to begin to fight it. When that same tumor spreads throughout the body, however, the cancer cells become invisible to our immune systems and can metastasize unencumbered by our natural defenses. Researchers out of the University of British Columbia (UBC) are on to cancer's tricky cloaking mechanism though, and their discovery could lead to new approaches to attacking the disease.

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 10:42:30 +0000

(image)

It seems like tiny houses are growing in size lately and we're regularly seeing models that exceed 300 sq ft (27.8 sq m) of floorspace. Escape's latest tiny house, the Vista Go, bucks this trend to offer a small and relatively inexpensive towable home that retains the same great craftsmanship and generous glazing boasted by its predecessor, the Vista.

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 07:21:49 +0000

(image)

The flat-decked BeachRay or Chilli Island's floating lounge chair look like great ways to relax at the beach, but what if you could take one of the comfiest places to park your butt on dry land and put in on the water? Mounting a hammock on a boat, the MelloShip does just that, letting users hang out on the water or attach an electric motor to cruise in comfort.

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 05:01:06 +0000

(image)

The world's oldest known recording of computer-generated music has been restored to its former glory by a team from the British Library. Taken from an acetate cut recording made by the BBC in 1951, the selection of three songs was generated by the University of Manchester's Computing Machine Laboratory's Ferranti Mark I computer in that year and was recently restored with the help of a programming manual written by Alan Turing.

Roller coasters add some thrills to treating kidney stones

(image)

Kidney stones aren't anyone's idea of a good time, but treating them could be more fun than we think. The prescription? A day at Walt Disney World. Researchers from Michigan State University (MSU) have found that roller coasters are an effective way to dislodge kidney stones, with tests on a synthetic model showing a success rate for passing kidney stones of almost 70 percent.

McLaren launches all-electric P1 ... for younger drivers

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 02:59:25 +0000

(image)

McLaren has announced an all-electric P1, which speeds from 0 to top speed in a mere two seconds. Admittedly, the feat is a little less impressive when you realize that top speed is 3 mph (4.8 km/h) and the open-top roadster is aimed at children six and under. But in some ways, the mini P1 is even more of an enthusiast's car than the full-sized model thanks to its McLaren F1-like central driving position.

Review: ShockStop stem smooths rough rides

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 20:40:33 +0000

(image)

Over the years, various companies have introduced their own take on the suspension handlebar stem. A lot of those stems were intended for mountain biking, and as a result were rather gawky-looking and thus unpopular with consumers. Last August, however, Redshift Sports launched a Kickstarter campaign for its road-focused and very normal-looking ShockStop stem. That campaign was a success, and the stem is about to hit the marketplace. We recently had the chance to try one out.

Ocean spray: Europa plumes seem to be showering its surface with water

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 20:08:30 +0000

(image)

Of all the bodies in our solar system, none arouse the interest of life-seeking astronomers in quite the way Europa does. As one of Jupiter's four largest moons, the satellite has drawn the interest of scientists for decades not because of its frosty, inhospitable surface, but the salty global ocean thought to be hidden within. But how can a body of water be examined for signs of life when packed away under miles of solid ice? New evidence revealed by NASA today suggests Europa might just offer us a helping hand, by ejecting water plumes out into space and spraying its surface with more easily sampled material in the process.

Apple Watch Series 2 review: Dynamic wearable, but no killer app

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 19:07:11 +0000

(image)

The Apple Watch Series 2 has a few new tricks up its sleeve, but will you want to wear it on yours? While its processor, display and interactivity make it impressively capable, the new Apple Watch remains a sleek gizmo without a killer app. The updated smartwatch can perform more tasks than ever, yet it doesn't seem to be the perfect tool for any of them. Join us, as we review the new Apple Watch.

Hands-on: Instant impressions of the Leica Sofort

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 17:40:07 +0000

(image)

The Leica Sofort feels like it would be more at home on the beaches of Cannes, or backstage at a Milan fashion show, than the German exhibition hall setting of Photokina. But that's where we recently got the chance to try it out. Read on to see what we made of Leica's first instant camera, and whether a premium instant camera makes sense.

Shape-shifting proteins layered like a cake could set Alzheimer’s in motion

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 17:14:12 +0000

(image)

Scientists have established a rough outline of one way in which Alzheimer's disease takes hold, and bit by bit they are starting to fill in the details. Key players in this process are what are known as amyloid beta proteins which form in clumps, evolve into plaques and cause irreversible damage to the brain. New research has revealed the crafty maneuver that these peptides use to slip past the cell's defenses whereby they first change shape to form stacks of long, flat sheets, a finding that may offer up new opportunities to intervene in the onset of the disease.

It appears Sony's A-mount camera system is not, as some had feared, going the way of the Dodo. The firm used Photokina to reveal a new flagship camera in the form of the Alpha A99 II, and it looks like quite the beast. We recently went hands-on with one to see if it's as powerful and fast as Sony claims.

Zaha Hadid leaves glass boat high and dry in Antwerp

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 12:44:49 +0000

(image)

Even her harshest critics could hardly accuse Zaha Hadid of being content to play it safe, and the starchitect's latest posthumously-completed work reminds us of the unwavering self-confidence that typified her designs. Intended to resemble a large glass ship's bow pointing toward the area that Antwerp was founded, the newly-inaugurated Port House extension is a definite landmark for the city's port, though is sure to divide opinion.

From fast charging to fuel cells, eking more mileage out of batteries will be crucial if electric cars are to win over devotees of gas and diesel. German company Sono Motors plans on using solar panels to solve the problem, with its compact Sion commuter.
