Lamborghini pulls the wraps off the Huracan 620-2 Super Trofeo

No one could accuse the standard Lamborghini Huracan of being tame. The standard car's 610 hp (455 kW) V10, coupled with Lamborghini's instantly recognizable angular styling make it a fast, engaging showstopper. But what if you want to go racing? And what if all-wheel drive is a little bit safe for you? Lamborghini may just have the answer in the form of the lightweight, track-ready Huracan 620-2 Super Trofeo.  Read More

The S1000R might be 33 horsepower (25 kW) down on its S1000RR superbike brother, but it's vastly more aggressive, raw and challenging on the road. We spent 10 days with BMW's latest, greatest super-naked motorcycle, its bad-tempered hair-trigger throttle, its full suite of rider assist and comfort technologies, and one magnificent, beautiful thumbswitch that we hope to see a lot more of.  Read More

Gizmag goes hands-on to compare two of the best smartphones today, the iPhone 5s and LG G3...

You probably aren't going to find two high-end smartphones as different as these two. Though we're only weeks away from a new iPhone, why not take the iPhone 5s' last moments in the spotlight to see how it compares to the LG G3?  Read More

If there’s life on Mars, it will have a great impact on Earth. But to answer the question, a group of engineers want to make an impact on Mars. Explore Mars, Inc., a private organization made up technologists and former NASA engineers, wants to look for signs of any present life on Mars not by scratching about on the surface, but by dropping supersonic lances on the planet that will penetrate deep into the Martian soil to seek out protected, potentially wet strata where life might still exist.  Read More

In the future, it's possible that our smartphones and tablets will have edge-to-edge screens. Most devices we use today fall far short of that, but a new phone from Sharp takes us a little closer ... sort of.  Read More

A new study from Lund University asserts that regional climate is influenced by the sun (I...

In a new study that may greatly add to our understanding of the drivers behind climate change, researchers from Lund University in Sweden claim to have accurately reconstructed solar activity levels during the last ice age. By analyzing trace elements in ice core samples in Greenland and cave mineral formations in China, the scientists assert that regional climate is more influenced by the sun than previously thought.  Read More

New designs have been released for swimming pools in the River Thames proposed by the Tham...

Back in January, London-based architects Studio Octopi released some conceptual designs for the creation of natural swimming pools in the River Thames. The designs were created for an open ideas contest. The response was so positive, however, that updated designs have now been released.  Read More

The SharkStopper PSR is worn on the ankle, and produces orca-like sounds

As regular viewers of a certain TV channel will already know, the orca (or killer whale) is one of the only animals that kills sharks. It would follow, therefore, that sharks generally try to stay away from them. It was with this fact in mind that the SharkStopper Personal Shark Repellent (PSR) device was created. The ankle-worn gadget emulates orca vocalizations, and has reportedly been shown to repel various species of sharks.  Read More

While they may not be quite as well-known as migraines, cluster headaches are even more painful, and can occur several times a day. There's presently no cure, although a new "neurostimulator" is claimed to help control them. A US clinical trial of the device has just begun, with a test subject recently having had one implanted beneath his cheekbone.  Read More

UAVs could someday be used to prevent bridge collapses, such as this one in Minneapolis  (...

When bridges are inspected for cracks and other defects that could lead to their collapse, engineers must either hang beneath those bridges on lines, or view them from elevated platforms. Whichever approach is used, a lot of setup is involved, and defects may get missed. In the future, however, unmanned aircraft may be able to more quickly and thoroughly check out bridges, working with wireless sensors built into the structures.  Read More
