The customized bubbles are made using a combination of soap-like components that transform...

As if soap bubbles don't spread enough happiness on their own, scientists have discovered a way of coating them in biomolecules with a view to treating viruses, cancer and other diseases. The technology has been developed at the University of Maryland, where researchers devised a method of tricking the body into mistaking the bubbles for harmful cells, triggering an immune response and opening up new possibilities in the delivery of drugs and vaccines.  Read More

When looking at mobile innovations from 2011 and later, the Galaxy Note towers above all o...

Earlier this week, we took a look back at the innovation of the original iPad, five years after the fact. But that got us thinking: what's been the biggest mobile innovation in the five years since then? Take Note: it belongs to Samsung.  Read More

NASA's Stephanie Schierholz introduces the panel of NASA and commercial representatives (P...

For several years, NASA and its private enterprise partners have been working on the space agency's Commercial Crew Program (CCP) to provide an astronaut ferry service from US soil to the International Space Station. Now a panel from NASA, Boeing, and SpaceX has outlined the latest timetable leading up to the first commercial flights.  Read More

Allsopp's new Action Cam Skyshot Helikite – some of the company's other Helikites have bee...

It's certainly no secret that consumer drones are proving to be extremely popular for shooting aerial videos. That said, the things still aren't perfect – you can't fly them for more than about 25 minutes per battery charge, pre-flight procedures such as calibrating their compass can be tricky, they're noisy, and they can fall out of the sky and hurt people. Allsopp's Action Cam Skyshot Helikite, however, is claimed to have none of these problems. It's basically just a GoPro-carrying kytoon – a kite/balloon hybrid.  Read More

Researchers have cured children of peanut allergies using a probiotic treatment (Photo: Sh...

Last year, scientists from the University of Chicago found that a probiotic therapy using a common gut bacteria prevented sensitization to peanut allergens – in mice. Now researchers at the Murdoch Childrens Research Institute in Melbourne, Australia, have shown that a similar probiotic treatment, this time involving Lactobacillus rhamnosus, has a similar effect, but this time in children.  Read More

'The E23 Hybrid represents a new era for Lotus F1 Team'

The Lotus F1 Team is first out of the gate in showing off its new contender for the 2015 Grand Prix World Championship. Dubbed the E23 Hybrid, this is the car that the crew from Enstone hopes will turn their fortunes around from an abysmal 2014 season.  Read More

The prototype glasses in their tinted and clear states (Photo: American Chemical Society)

Glasses with transitional lenses are a neat idea in theory, but they have some shortcomings in practice. That's why researchers from the Georgia Institute of Technology are developing an alternative – clear eyeglasses that can be manually tinted into sunglasses, by the user.  Read More

The Spire team, with one of the CubeSats

Weather forecasting is a notoriously inexact science. According to San Francisco-based tech startup Spire, this is partially because there are currently less than 20 satellites responsible for gathering all of the world's weather data – what's more, some of the older ones are using outdated technology. Spire's solution? Establish a linked network of over 100 shoebox-sized CubeSats, that will use GPS technology to gather 100 times the amount of weather data than is currently possible. The first 20 of those satellites are scheduled to launch later this year.  Read More

Coolbox is a toolbox which comes with a host of fixtures, fittings, and features

A toolbox isn't something you'd ever think of as being "cool." After all, it's designed to be a simple repository for your tools, nothing more, nothing less. Unless, that is, we're talking about Coolbox, a toolbox with more than a few tricks up its sleeve.  Read More

A scale replica of the Sagrada Familia has been created using ice (Photo: Bart van Overbee...

Students from the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) have built an ice replica of Gaudi's famous Sagrada Familia basilica. Fittingly, like the actual Barcelona landmark, the simplified model was incomplete by the time it was due to open. The aim of the project was to investigate the use of ice as a building material.  Read More
