BBC micro:bit wins first Grand Digital computer race

Thu, 22 Feb 2018 13:54:14 +0000

As part of its 10th birthday celebrations, the National Museum of Computing at Bletchley Park in the UK set eight computing machines spanning 80 years against each other in a race to find numbers in a mathematical sequence. An old WITCH machine and a modern iPhone were among the competitors of the Grand Digital computer race, but the clear winner was a BBC micro:bit with a 9 year-old coder as its "jockey."

Volvo moves its sleek, sexy wagon design down the line with all-new V60

Thu, 22 Feb 2018 10:13:01 +0000

(image)

Even in the US, where station wagons are anything but objects of desire, the Volvo V90 is, quite simply, a damn sexy family hauler. With a starting price of US$52K, it's not for everyone, though. The all-new Volvo V60 follows the V90's styling and SPA-platformed construction closely, offering a smaller, more affordable Volvo estate with sleek lines and Thor's hammer eyes. It also benefits from Volvo's leadership in safety, technology and subscription-based purchasing.

Solar-powered hydrogen reactor stores heat for overnight use

Thu, 22 Feb 2018 08:58:23 +0000

(image)

The Sun can provide an unlimited amount of energy, but there's one major downside – night. For roughly half the day facilities and devices that rely on solar power have to shut down or store extra energy, and the process is particularly disruptive to concentrated solar power (CSP) plants which work on heat. Now, scientists at the German Aerospace Center have tested a solar reactor concept known as CONTISOL, which also contains a thermal energy storage system to allow it to run day or night.

We've seen a number of smart home thermostats over the past few years that learn just how toasty you like your living room, but these won't do much good when you venture out the front door. Boston apparel company Ministry of Supply wants to bring this kind of personalized climate control to people on the move, launching a heated jacket that tunes its temp in line with user preferences, and has a few other handy tricks up its sleeves as well.

Large meta-study concludes antidepressants are more effective than a placebo

Thu, 22 Feb 2018 03:56:04 +0000

(image)

Debate over the efficacy of antidepressants has raged for years with a torrent of studies, often quite convincingly, arguing that the drugs are no better than a placebo, and research pointing to the contrary inevitably stained by pharmaceutical company bias. A new meta-analysis of over 500 trials covering the largest dataset evaluated to date has concluded that antidepressants are definitely more effective than a placebo.

Rolls-Royce SUV fancies up tailgating with deployable picnic seating

Thu, 22 Feb 2018 03:34:49 +0000

(image)

We're not sure Rolls-Royce's bold, plush Cullinan SUV will be a frequent visitor at many primitive campsites or football tailgates, but it will have a special feature that could prove perfect for either of those locations and many more. The tailgate area will transform into a proper lounge, with two seats and a small table deploying to provide "the best seat in the house." Whether it's a bluff-top ocean view, a starry night sky or a city skyline, driver and passenger will be able to take it all in from a comfy, open-air deck.

American arthouse motorcycle manufacturer Confederate became Curtiss earlier this year, named after the guy who built the first American v-twin, and then promptly stopped making v-twins. Hence we're kinda glad they (it) decided to build a limited edition Warhawk: it will be the first Curtiss motorcycle in 110 years, and it will be a v-twin

NASA has released a somber view of Saturn's night side, created from some of the final images captured by the Cassini spacecraft. An annotated version of the release poignantly highlights the region of Saturn's cloud surface in which the beloved probe would meet its end, just a few hours after the images used to create the new mosaic were captured.

Robotic picking arm isn't thwarted by clutter

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 18:29:41 +0000

(image)

When it comes to part-picking robots, they're typically programmed to grasp a specific object in a specific fashion – such as a car part on an assembly line. Scientists from MIT and Princeton University, however, have developed a system that allows robots to grab random objects from a bin, then identify what the objects are and where they should go.

Norwegian timber tower will reach new heights

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 16:30:39 +0000

Following our coverage of a tall wooden tower that might get built, here's one that is being built. Named Mjøstårnet, it's currently under construction in Norway and will rise to a height of 81 m (265 ft) once complete, making it the new world's tallest wooden building. Kind of. Maybe. That depends on rule changes which may or may not come into force. Either way, the project offers some insight into the challenges of tall timber construction.

Camera attachment jolts a shutterbug into snapping "better" photos

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 14:45:11 +0000

There's nothing more frustrating than missing an ideal photo opportunity. That may not be a problem if using a camera attachment and grip built by Peter Buczkowski which sends an electric shock to the photographer when its AI-trained brain determines that a scene out front is sufficiently beautiful. Though beauty most definitely is in the eye of the AI beholder.

Stretchable throat sensor a "game-changer" in stroke treatment

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 12:49:43 +0000

Over the years, we've seen all manner of innovations designed to assist the rehabilitation of stroke patients, from adapted Nintendo Wii games to anti-inflammatory drugs, and from stem cell treatments to robotic gloves. Though the idea of using wearable sensors to track patients' progress is well established (as this sensor suit we reported on in 2016 attests), a new innovation from Northwestern University shows how quickly this technology is progressing. The team of researchers has come up with a band-aid-like sensor, to be worn on the throat, which tracks all manner of vital information to send wirelessly to a doctor.
