Imagine your laptop, phone, or other battery-driven piece of tech recharging in less than 15 minutes? That’s at least an hour faster than the fastest smartphone recharging systems can manage today, and something most of us would find extremely beneficial. The good news is, the world’s first graphene battery pack is here, and it promises […]
Recording artist Timbaland has teamed up with SubPac, a Los Angeles-based startup that has created a wearable device set to redefine entertainment through new immersive physical-sound technology. This new wearable will change the way that we hear and feel music forever.

Creator of the world’s first 3D-printed cars, Local Motors, has developed the first self-driving “cognitive” vehicle, using IBM Watson Internet of Things (IoT) for Automotive. It’s set to debut later this year in Washington DC.
An electric racing car built by Swiss student engineers has broken the world record for acceleration. The grimsel car took only 1.513 seconds to reach 100kph (62mph) – slashing about a quarter of a second off the previous record time.
The goal is for these unmanned subs to operate for more than 60 days. General Motors is now working with the U.S. Navy to develop hydrogen fuel cell-powered underwater drones that can operate without recharging for this extended period.
Industrial robots used to be big, unwieldy, and dangerous. Now new “human-safe” robots are commonplace on automotive lines, working right next to people. These robots are awkward coworkers; they coexist with us but do not meaningfully collaborate. They often need to be explicitly told how to be helpful or when to stay out of the way […]
Hacking is most certainly a two way street. The developers behind Ethereum launched an assault on an anonymous hacker that stole at least $89 million through its network.
