Top 100: The most desirable cars of all time
Porsche is offering navigation for its classic cars, with a system designed to maintain th...

As cars become more sophisticated, drivers have been able to say farewell to many of the challenges that driving used to hold – from power steering to sat-nav, cars are making it easier than ever to get from A to B. Porsche has decided that owners of its classic cars deserve some of this high-tech help, and has designed a sat-nav system to fit into the dash of cars dating back to the 1960's.  Read More

An air traffic controller advises a drone, using the experimental system (Photo: RMIT Univ... If autonomous delivery drones are ever going to see widespread use, then they can't simply fly around with no regard for other aircraft. In recent projects, drone operators had to file flight plans in advance. Researchers from Australia's RMIT University have gone a step farther, however. They've developed a system that lets drones communicate with air traffic controllers using a synthesized voice.  Read More

The Bam City handlebar flexes downwards to absorb vibrations and small bumps

When serious cyclists want a little more vibration damping (or lower weight) in their handlebars, they'll often shell out hundreds of bucks for a carbon fiber bar. French company Baramind, however, wants to extend the concept of shock-absorbing handlebars to everyday commuters, with the not-so-expensive but even-flexier Bam City.  Read More

Girella rolls out and folds down to become an occasional bed Chairs which fold out to become occasional beds are nothing new, but we haven't previously seen one that works in quite the same way as the Girella from Campeggi. Designed by Lorenzo Damiani, the Girella transforms from an armchair to a mattress and back again in the simplest manner possible.  Read More

ESO's Multi Unit Spectroscopic Explorer (MUSE) instrument, which is mounted on the Very Large Telescope based in the Paranal Observatory, Chile, has been focusing in on a tiny patch in the night sky previously featured in Hubble's Deep Field South image (HDF-S). After only 27 hours of continuous observation, the cutting edge instrument has captured detailed measurements of more galaxies with more detail than ever before.  Read More

Elon Musk's Hyperloop is going to become a reality, but not quite on the grand scale it was originally conceived for just yet. Hyperloop Transportation Technologies (HTT) has reached an agreement to build a 5-mile (8-km) passenger track for Quay Valley, a proposed "sustainable model town for the 21st century" in California's central valley.  Read More

The 20-foot-wide reflector antenna is a key component of the system, and is responsible fo... NASA mission controllers have successfully deployed the Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) observatory’s reflector antenna, in what is an important step along the road towards the satellite becoming fully operational.  Read More

The Nomadic Shelter is a temporary modular shelter recently built during the Salt Siida Workshop, an architectural workshop that's part of a traveling arts festival currently located on the the beach of the Norwegian island of Sandhornøy, in the Arctic Circle. Despite measuring just 12 sq m (130 sq ft), the shelter sleeps up to 12 people.  Read More
