Gizmag compares the features and specs of the new 12-in MacBook (left) and the 11-in MacBo...

Last month Apple finally announced a MacBook Air with Retina Display … only it’s just called "the new MacBook." Apple also announced a new version of the classic MacBook Air, which is now basically Apple's budget notebook (though no MacBook is really "budget"). Confused? We don't blame you. Let's break down their features and specs to see if we can clear things up.  Read More

Researchers at at Draxler University have developed a metallic nanocoating derived from a virus of the tobacco plant that could lead to more efficient steam production, improving the performance of steam turbines, air conditioning and electronics cooling systems.  Read More

With its screaming supercars and illustrious history in Formula One, the name Ferrari makes petrolheads weak at the knees in a way that few other brands can manage. Fans of the Prancing Horse had their fill at this weekend's Australian Motoring Festival with the chance to wander through a marquee chock full of everything from the legendary F40 to more modern offerings like the F12 Berlinetta.  Read More

Asteroid Redirect Vehicle landing (Image: NASA)

NASA has released new details on how it plans to boldly go to an asteroid and come back with a bit of it. The Asteroid Redirect Mission (ARM) is part of the space agency's Asteroid Initiative announced in 2013, which envisions the capture and return of an asteroid to lunar orbit for study by astronauts as a rehearsal for a later mission to Mars.  Read More

Revology shows its Mustang that blends old and new at the Amelia Island Concours d'Eleganc...

We've seen a lot of boutique revivalists in the auto industry in recent years, companies that revive true-to-original or retro-inspired car bodies with advanced modern powertrain and cabin technologies. Over the course of 2014 and 2015, we've taken a look at the classic-Mustang-inspired Equus Bass, the all-electric Shelby-based Renovo Coupe, and now the Revology Mustang. This post-modern reinterpretation of the iconic first-generation Mustang includes a full suite of the latest features.  Read More

The Elytron 2S demonstrator concept's airframe was recently completed

When we laid eyes on the Elytron 2S tiltrotor plane prototype last year at the Experimental Aircraft Association's fly-in airshow in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, it was a half-built concept with only part of its Prandtl wing box installed. The company has now completed the airframe ahead of planned flight tests later this year.  Read More

The Kadalock mounts on existing bottle cages – although you should check for compatibility...

The keyless Bluetooth bike locks are now coming thick and fast ... relatively speaking. In just the past couple of years, we've heard about the Skylock, Bitlock, Lock8, Ulock and Noke U-lock. Now, the Kadalock has appeared on our radar. It differs from the others in that it's a cable lock, and it mounts on the user's existing water bottle cage.  Read More

Antifreeze can be deadly, but perhaps not for much longer (Photo: Shutterstock)

Because of its sweet flavor and aroma, thousands of wild animals, pets and children are poisoned by drinking automotive antifreeze/coolant every year. Its particularly nasty ingredient is ethylene glycol, which affects the central nervous system, heart and kidneys to the point that it can ultimately prove lethal. Now, however, scientists from Colorado-based ACTA Technology, Inc. have replaced the ethylene glycol with another compound that's not only safe, but that also improves the performance of the antifreeze.  Read More

Buddy Boxes mounted inside a van

In recent years, we've seen many modular camper conversions and camper-in-a-box kits. The hardware can transform an average, everyday vehicle into an overnight recreational vehicle, then be removed when the road trip is over, leaving the base vehicle ready to drop the kids off at school and make the commute to work. Designed by German architect, carpenter and all-around garage tinkerer Gerhard Euchenhofer, the BuddyBox represents an even smaller, more flexible modular conversion option. Not only can BuddyBoxes convert your van into a full camper, they can make it a tailgating party wagon, a picnic in the park, a sports support vehicle and more. When the trip's over, remove the BuddyBoxes and you have your standard-spec van back.  Read More

LGA's Bedford Park House is designed to be sustainable without looking conspicuously so (P...

For many people, the idea of green living might give the impression of needing to make big changes to their lifestyle and home. A new house in Toronto, Canada, however, shows that needn't be the case. LGA's Bedford Park House is a modern home with green design embedded throughout.  Read More
