The WiFO system developed by researchers at Oregon State University uses both Wi-Fi RF and...

The vast range of Wi-Fi-enabled devices available today means that anyone could have several personal electronic devices all trying to connect to a network simultaneously. Multiply this by many hundreds of people in a busy public place with Wi-Fi connectivity and this often means that available bandwidth is greatly reduced. To help address this problem, researchers at Oregon State University claim to have invented a new system called WiFO that incorporates infrared LEDs to boost the available Wi-Fi bandwidth by as much as ten times.  Read More

Scientists have found that a particular protein can cause pancreatic cancer cells to rever...

Scientists working in the area of pancreatic cancer research have uncovered a technique that sees cancerous cells transform back into normal healthy cells. The method relies in the introduction of a protein called E47, which bonds with particular DNA sequences and reverts the cells back to their original state.  Read More

The Electron launch system uses a battery-powered turbopump in its Rutherford engine

Though there have been tremendous advances in space technology in recent years, when it comes to getting into space, we're still like cavemen trying to get beyond the breakers on a floating log – at least, that's the view of New Zealand-based company Rocket Lab. In the hopes of increasing the number of satellite launches to over 100 a year and placing constellations of small satellites into orbit numbering in the thousands, the company has developed a "battery-powered" rocket engine to lift its Electron launch vehicle at almost a tenth of the cost of conventional boosters.  Read More

Sena's 10C is the first Bluetooth headset to hit the market with a built-in action camera. It takes the intercom and phone integration features of the SMH-10, and mashes them together with the video capabilities of the Sena Prism we reviewed last week, while adding the convenience of dashcam-style video tagging. And after just a few days' use, we're happy to pronounce it the best gadget in the Sena range – one of those rare moments when you find yourself thinking "how come nobody ever thought of this before?"  Read More

Lucera Labs isn't the first startup to mimic the natural sunrise for a more subtle start to the day, but by bringing highly targeted sounds into the mix it hopes to save your significant other some valuable shut-eye, and perhaps even your relationship.  Read More

McLaren is chasing new customers with its 'most attainable' car yet, the 540C Coupe

McLaren has continued its rapid range expansion with the unveiling of its new "entry-level" 540C Coupé at the Shanghai Auto Show. This isn't your average poverty-pack range starter, however, with the cheapest member of McLaren's Sport Series still capable of a 3.5 second sprint to 100 km/h (62 mph) thanks to its twin-turbo V8 engine.  Read More

For over 40 years, Landsat has quietly but consistently been taking images of the surface of the Earth, amassing an impressive collection of data about our planet. This month, NASA and the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) announced that the effort would continue to span the generations, by moving forward with the development and planned launch of LandSat 9 in 2023.  Read More

Gizmag's Nick Lavars takes the Carbon Series 2 in 1 for a spin (Photo Loz Blain/Gizmag.com...

Jeff Anning was scoping out waves at his local surf spot back in 2008 when somebody buzzed past him on a motorized long board. In that moment the seed for what was to become Evolve Skateboards was planted. Since the launch of its own first generation Electric Pintail in 2012, Evolve has continued to refine its idea of what electric skateboards should be. This most recently culminated in the 2 in 1 Carbon Series, which has gone on to become the company's biggest seller by some margin. We have spent the last few weeks cruising the streets with this zippy little number, and apart from having a hell of a time, we found it to be a more than practical way of getting around.  Read More

The SipaBoard is inflatable, plus it has an integrated jet drive

While stand-up paddleboards are usually a lot of fun to use, they can be a hassle to transport and store. That's why we've seen ones that can be folded up and disassembled. The SipaBoard, however, takes yet another approach – it's inflatable. An onboard electric motor pumps the air into it for you, plus it also powers an integrated jet drive that provides paddlers with a boost.  Read More
