Drew Hobbs with the MK.II replica Colt rifle

The zombie-killing gore masters at IRLShooter are preparing to launch their second "real life video game" in Melbourne, Australia – Lazarus, a sequel to the very successful Patient Zero they ran in 2012. Surrounded by dangling corpses, Dave and Drew chatted with us about the new game, the new weapons, the infamous "pain belt" and the opportunity for players to join the zombie horde and scare seven different shades of crap out of their friends.  Read More

Johammer's unique looking electro-cruiser motorcycle

The Johammer is one of the first production electric motorcycles to break the 200 km (124 mi) range mark. It's also pretty much the strangest looking two-wheeler we've ever come across.

The Buoyant Air Turbine, from Altaeros Energies

Winds are stronger and steadier at higher altitudes, that’s why the Buoyant Air Turbine (BAT) from Altaeros is pushing to be the highest wind turbine in history. Already tested to 500 feet off the ground in 45 mph winds, this helium-filled shell with a wind turbine in the middle is soon shooting for a world record 1,000 ft float.

USB 3.1 Type C – the next generation USB cable

The UK has put in place some of the strictest drug driving laws on the planet in an effort to get drug-impaired drivers off the roads.

Naturally, since the British government can’t be seen to encourage recreational drug use, these limits haven’t been put into a practical context. So we contacted several drug testing experts and a forensic pharmacologist to try to work out what they mean. And as it turns out, some drugs will make you illegal to drive long after their physical effects have worn off.  Read More
