Sweam gives pocket smart projector its own touchscreen

Fri, 24 Nov 2017 13:57:14 +0000

(image)

Giving pint-sized smart projectors an Android heart isn't a new idea, but many designs require the use of input peripherals or IR pens to activate icons, install apps or start the movie. Swedish tech startup Sweam has included a touchscreen display on the top of its pocket projector, offering familiar smartphone-like control while allowing users to watch shows on the small screen for the commute back home from work and continue the viewing experience on a living room wall.

Want longer-lasting roads? Just add graphene

Fri, 24 Nov 2017 06:20:43 +0000

(image)

It's getting to the point where it seems like adding a dash of graphene can improve just about anything. The latest example is something you probably wouldn't expect to benefit from the addition of the wonder material – asphalt. While roads may not seem like the most logical area for technological advances, two Italian companies have come together to combine graphene and asphalt and create a more durable and sustainable road surface.

Engineered E. coli recruited as the world's smallest data recorders

Fri, 24 Nov 2017 06:09:29 +0000

(image)

The microscopic world inside our bodies can be pretty mysterious, but researchers from Columbia University have developed a technique that lets them send a spy in to see what's going on in there. The process is to essentially "bug" a bug, where bacteria are engineered to record what they interact with on their journey through the gastrointestinal tract, and even timestamp when those events occurred.

If you want to experience the benefits of autonomous driving technology, you need to shell out for a late model car, right? Not so, if Toronto-based start-up X-Matik, which recently unveiled its LaneCruise system, has its way. Coming as an aftermarket add-on kit, the system is designed to give any old car self-driving capabilities.

Solar supercapacitor creates electricity and hydrogen fuel on the cheap

Fri, 24 Nov 2017 03:25:36 +0000

(image)

Hydrogen-powered vehicles are slowly hitting the streets, but although it's a clean and plentiful fuel source, a lack of infrastructure for mass producing, distributing and storing hydrogen is still a major roadblock. But new work out of the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) could help lower the barrier to entry for consumers, with a device that uses sunlight to produce both hydrogen and electricity.

A massive umbrella study published in the British Medical Journal has concluded that moderate coffee intake is generally safe for most of the population. The review examined over 200 meta-studies on the health effects of coffee consumption and concluded that three to five cups a day looks to be the safest maximum volume one should consume.

If you're thinking that it seems a little less dark at night these days … well, you might not be imagining things. According to a new study led by Dr. Christopher Kyba of the German Research Center for Geoscience, Earth's artificially lit outdoor areas grew in size and radiance by 2.2 percent per year – on average – from 2012 to 2016.

Soft robotic device gives the heart a one-sided squeeze

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 20:32:21 +0000

(image)

Often in cases of failing hearts, it's actually one side of the heart that doesn't work properly. A ventricular assistive device (VAD) is sometimes implanted, to help pump blood through the ventricle (chamber) on that side of the heart. There can be problems with conventional VADs, however, which a newly-developed soft robotic device may be able to address.

Back in March, Tesla's Elon Musk promised to have a proposed battery storage system at the Hornsdale Wind Farm in South Australia up and running within 100 days, or he'd foot the bill. The project clock started ticking in September and the deadline for the big switch on is December 1, and South Australia's Premier Jay Weatherill has today confirmed that it's built and ready to "be energized."

Thingyfy takes digital photography back to basics

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 15:57:32 +0000

(image)

Nikon once said that "a photographer is only as good as the equipment he uses, and a good lens is essential to taking good pictures." Not strictly true of course, someone with a good eye can work magic with even the most basic equipment. And you can't get much more basic than a pinhole camera setup. Canada's Thingyfy is looking to marry the simple charm of pinhole photography with modern digital cameras with the launch of the Pinhole Pro S series of wide angle, glass-free lenses.

Quebec's Minimaliste, the firm behind the Sakura tiny house, recently completed another towable dwelling that can handle very cold weather. The difference with the Laurier is that it runs off-the-grid with solar power and is warmed with a novel propane-powered underfloor heating system. It also boasts some clever storage ideas.

Mini will attack Dakar with new 2WD John Cooper Works Buggy

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 11:10:41 +0000

(image)

The annual Dakar Rally has been casting some doubt on whether four-wheel drive is really the superior technology for serious off-road racing. Peugeot has exploited regulation incentives for 2WD vehicles to the fullest, taking home back-to-back victories, including a 1-2-3 finish at this year's event. Previously the name to beat, Mini has had to sit by and watch Peugeot's beastly 2WD overshadow it. Now it's experimenting with a rugged 2WD buggy of its own, preparing to run both 2WD and 4WD cars at next year's Dakar. Are Peugeot's days at the top numbered?

(image)

Exhaust emissions technology has reduced toxic diesel and gasoline emissions substantially during the last few decades so that most particulate pollution caused by road traffic now comes from road, tire and brake wear. A new brake disc from Buderus Guss called the iDisc can help to reduce particulates from brakes.

Could graphene ripples be tapped into as a clean, limitless energy source?

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 08:48:12 +0000

(image)

As if graphene wasn't versatile enough already, researchers at the University of Arkansas have now found a way for the two-dimensional material to be used as a source of clean and potentially unlimited energy. By tapping into the random fluctuations of the carbon atoms that make up graphene sheets, the scientists can generate an alternating current strong enough to indefinitely power a wristwatch.

The America's Cup, the oldest trophy in international sport, has been contested over a period of 160 years and until recently, was always done so in monohull sailing yachts. Following a flirtation with larger multi-hull yachts over the past seven years, the Cup is returning to its roots for the 36th installment, and we've just gotten our first look at what this next generation of monohull racers might look like.
