• Lilium is developing a five-seat electric aircraft that can take off and land vertically.• The company envisions using the aircraft like an Uber, hailing it from your phone to take you around the city,
Codeless development platforms are at once a blessing and a curse. If they’re complete enough to be powerful they are too difficult for beginners and if they’re simple enough for beginners they’re useless
Lamborghini is working with engineers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology on a new all-electric supercar that won't have batteries. Instead, the body of the Lamborghini Terzo Millennio concept
Last week, Sun Microsystems co-founder Bill Joy and the company he currently backs, Ionic Materials, unveiled a solid-state alkaline battery design that they claim would be cheaper and safer than the battery.
According to physics, the universe and everything in it can be explained by just a handful of equations. They’re difficult equations, all right, but their simplest feature is also the most mysterious The

The long-planned LISA space mission to detect gravitational waves looks as though it will be green lit shortly. Scientists working on a demonstration of its key measurement technologies say they have beaten
The crystals' patterns repeat not in space, but in time. Crystals are structures in which a pattern of atoms or molecules repeats in space. Now, two teams of researchers have figured out that crystals'
