China’s Netflix, LeTV, is developing an electric car to take on Tesla. They’ve hired 600 people—including 200 stationed in the U.S.—to develop the car that they revealed for the first time.
The Transwheel drone is a new type of robotic vehicle that could soon be carrying our packages and parcels to our doors, according to designers.
The Chinese government has begun to tighten controls on the internet as the police announced in August the arrests of about 15,000 people for crimes that “jeopardized Internet security.”
Researchers at North Carolina State University in Raleigh have constructed an antenna that can be lengthened—or shortened—to adjust their frequency using liquid metal.
The burning of fossil fuels and plastic waste are devastating to the planet. 3D printing has the opportunity to move away from non-toxic, non-petroleum-based plastics from the get-go and 3Dom is on a mission to produce environmentally friendly filament. Their latest is called “Wound Up” and, to put the third ‘r’ in “reduce, reuse, and recycle”, the material is made from recycled coffee grounds.
A new technology in the food industry makes ordinary sugar twice as sweet—so food tastes exactly the same with half the calories, and without the controversy of artificial sweeteners.

Korea University and TU Berlin scientists have developed a brain-computer interface (BCI) for a lower limb exoskeleton used for gait assistance by decoding specific signals from the user’s brain.
At a Drexel University lab in Philadelphia, a desktop 3-D printer is printing miniature samples of bones. In Toronto, another researcher is using the same printer to make living tumors for drug testing. It looks like an ordinary 3-D printer, but instead of plastic, it squirts out living cells.
StoreDot, a three-year-old Israeli startup, is developing an electric car battery that will let electric cars travel hundreds of miles after only five minutes of charging.
