500 miles of range and more aerodynamic than a supercar
Elon Musk shared this picture of the Boring Company’s tunnel under Los Angeles.
For decades, the blind have used canes to get around. Now a special wristband gives them a ‘sixth sense.’
Sunu has developed a wristband that emits a silent, high frequency sound and vibration to alert the visually impaired of obstacles within their environment.
Researchers from Michigan State University believe transparent solar panels have the potential to generate just as much solar power as rooftop solar panels. When used effectively, they could at full implementation provide 40 percent of electricity in the U.S.
Finnish research team has taken a step towards the future of food by developing a method for producing food from electricity. If scaling it up proves to be successful, it could be a tool in the fight against world hunger and climate change.
Austrian and Chinese academies of sciences successfully conducted first inter-continental quantum video call
The two Academy presidents Chunli Bai and Anton Zeilinger tested quantum encrypted communication between Beijing and Vienna in a live-experiment. The quantum key was transmitted via the Chinese quantum satellite Micius.
The mosquito is a delicate insect, with spindly legs and a graceful proboscis. The parasitic, single-celled organisms that spread malaria are even smaller and more fragile, and scientists are trying their hardest to remove them from the planet. More than 400,000 lives every year are at stake—that’s more people than die of international terrorist attacks, […]
Radiative sky cooling systems use reflective panels to emit heat into space, potentially cooling a building in the process.
