The Sunrise 3D-printed guitar is one of three stock models available from Customuse

Whether you're new to the guitar or a seasoned git-fiddler, chances are that the shape, color and hardware of your go-to axe have been determined by the company that produces it. The cost of having an instrument made to your exact specifications can cause the heart to skip more than a few beats, and the bank manager to question your sanity. 3D printing technology has the potential to help create your dream guitar for a fraction of the cost of a Custom Shop model, and that's precisely what's on offer from the UK's Customuse. With three stock designs already available, the company will shortly open a browser-based platform for full customization.  Read More

Two collaborating Japanese universities have laid claim to creating the world’s fastest ca...

At a mind-boggling 4.4 trillion frames per second (FPS), the new STAMP (Sequentially Timed All-optical Mapping Photography) system developed by two Japanese universities is claimed to be the world’s fastest camera. Taking pictures at a resolution of 450 x 450 pixels, the new image-capturing device is purported to be so fast that it can be used to photograph the conduction of heat, which travels at a speed equivalent to one-sixth the velocity of light.  Read More

Researchers have developed a high-performance electrode material for supercapacitors from ...

Using waste hemp fibers as the starting material, researchers at the University of Alberta in Canada have developed a high-performance electrode material for supercapacitors at one thousandth the cost of the more commonly used graphene. The advance could lead to supercapacitors that are both cheaper and able to operate under harsh environmental conditions.  Read More

Evermind sensors enable household appliance use to help monitor the elderly or infirm

For those with elderly or special needs relatives or friends who live by themselves, it is not always practical to check on their well-being all of the time. Sure, you could drop by or call them on the phone, but if it’s too late or too early in the day, this is inconvenient for both you and them. Evermind helps address these problems by alerting you remotely when electrical appliances are switched on and off by the person that you care about, indicating that they are active and everything is normal.  Read More

GXV-T aims to make tanks half as heavy and twice as fast (Image: DARPA)

As a quick visit to any armored division will make obvious, tanks are big ... really big. A Challenger 2 main battle tank, for example, weighs 62.5 tonnes (68.9 tons) and costs about £4.2 million (US$7 million). And as anti-tank weapons get better, tanks can only get bigger. To avoid armies of tomorrow having to pay for land-going battleships, DARPA’s Ground X-Vehicle Technology (GXV-T) program aims at developing lighter, more agile successors to the tank that protect themselves with more than ever-thicker walls of steel.  Read More

A new antibacterial gel has been shown to penetrate and kill off certain kinds of superbug...

Drug-resistant bacteria, or so-called superbugs, pose a very real threat to public health. The over prescription and consumption of antibiotics has contributed to a resilient new breed of germs that could see minor infections once again evolve into life-threatening conditions. The latest development in the fight against this threat comes from scientists at Queens University in Belfast, who have produced an antibacterial gel capable of breaking through a protective casing and killing off certain types of drug-resistant bacteria.  Read More

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
