The firm has rebranded itself as Opho and is now singing a slightly different tune, launching a LED-lit keyboard based on the same, super-addictive learning principle.  Read More

Armed with the knowledge that children tend to learn better when they teach their new-found skills to others, Swiss researchers have enlisted the help of a humanoid robot that improves along with them. This CoWriter system has been well received in tests with school children aged six to eight, where students "teach" the robot to improve its penmanship and see the robot's improved performance reflected in their own handwriting.  Read More

All manner of weird and wonderful exercise contraptions pushed on late night infomercials are testament to people's desire for faster and easier ways to get the benefits of exercise – whether said contraptions are effective or not.

Gizmag is no stranger to MotoArt's work, upcycling bits of old airplanes into showboating corporate furniture, but this beautiful desk made from the elevator of a Grumman HU-16 Albatross is something else. Obviously, we're nuts about the powder-coated orange.  Read More

Ford used Mobile World Congress in Barcelona to unveil two new e-bike concepts that help define its vision for a connected transport future where cars form just one part of a multi-mode travel eco-system.

Locking up the Yerka Last September we first heard about the one-off Yerka Project bike, which was designed by three engineering students in Chile. Its clever feature was a frame that partially came apart to act as a lock. That way, any thief tempted to break its lock would be ruining the very bike they wanted, too. Now, its creators are attempting to bring it to market via an Indiegogo campaign.  Read More
