Using sat-navs could provide a thirty-fold increase in the measurement of oceans. Accurate sea level measurements are more critical than ever, but there are a limited number of radar satellites designed
Robots can't keep up with all the custom options. We've all heard stories about how the robots are taking our jobs. While that may be true, Mercedes-Benz is replacing some of its high-tech workers with
Without this procedure, the patient's cancer would have left him a quadriplegic. Ralph Mobbs, a neurosurgeon at the Prince of Wales Hospital in Sydney, made medical history in late 2015 when he successfully
You'll have to 3D print some of the parts, though. In today's maker-friendly workshop a 3D scanner is just as useful as 3D printing for replicating small objects. And now there's an option to adding the
With a bit of help from the Spitzer telescope and Planck satellite. The APEX telescope in Chile has completed its biggest project, resulting in the most complete view of the cold galaxy we've ever seen.
That's not bread in the picture -- that's Pluto's northern region. NASA has released another close-up of the most beloved dwarf planet, this time focusing on its northern polar area. If Pluto's heart-shaped
Are you happy to buy a smartphone contract from a robot? Kicking off an event that showcases Softbank's Pepper robot working in a business environment, the Japanese phone carrier says it's going to test
A true oldie but goodie. When the Opportunity made its Mars landing on January 24th, 2004, NASA believed the rover would only last about 90 days, due to the Red Planet's dusty nature. But, thanks to unexpected
Listen, it's been a long week. Sometime you just want to build Lego robots for a bit. This week, Lego unveiled its second generation WeDo education kit, which includes all the pieces, motors, and sensors
Foreverence uses 3D Systems' ColorJet Printers to make its products. Each urn takes between 10 to 15 hours to print, and they come out in full color. A spokesperson for the company said that pricing is
That he won't ever get drunk is a huge bonus. Well, OK. The truly perfect companion to a lonely drunk is a sympathetic human being, but Drinky is a close second. It can listen to your troubles without
The "184" is a delivery drone for humans. It's happened. Someone built a quadcopter big enough to carry human cargo. The future is officially here, and it's kinda scary. Scary in the cool way, though.
But you don't have to actually attend CES to get the experience. Syfy has always been willing to experiment with tech that promotes its shows -- Hue lights, the Defiance game/show tie-in -- and now it's
The elder statesman of personal mobility is back. With an emoji face. Intel's collaboration with Xiaomi on its new (now modular) Ninebot Segway means at least one very important thing: it now has an adorable
Project CORAL will use a spectrometer to measure reef conditions. Coral reefs are breathtaking homes for a diverse range of marine life, including turtles, sharks and eels. They're under threat from pollution,
Planetary Resources and 3D Systems turned a meteorite into a 3D print. So-called "asteroid mining" company Planetary Resources is built on the belief that asteroids and other objects in space are loaded
It's cheap-ish, it's versatile and it has a great name. Some people very strongly believe that robots will eventually replace humans in the workforce. Those people probably wouldn't like KATIA, a surprisingly
The Event Horizon Telescope's development is on track. Event horizons remain shrouded in mystery (and is depicted as the gateway to hell by a certain sci-fi horror flick) for good reason. Since they don't
Robots too. The European Space Agency is going back to the moon. It announced on Friday that it's working with international partners to land a series of manned missions on the moon by the end of the decade.
Autonomous cars get in 27-percent fewer accidents per million miles Evidence is already starting to pile up that autonomous vehicles are pretty darn safe, but would you like to slap a number on it? Okay,
Third time's the charm, right? After SpaceX's Falcon 9 rocket launches the Jason-3 satellite on January 17th, its first stage will attempt to land back to Earth unscathed. The private space corp performed
A robot suit that teaches you empathy for the elderly. I like to joke that I'm technically 33 years old, but on the inside I'm 65. I'm less inclined to make that joke after spending 20 minutes or so inside
