The Rocketbook's contents can be erased by placing it in the microwave for 30 seconds

With touchscreens and keyboards never far from our fingertips these days, paper notebooks might not be as essential as they once were. But there's still something pleasant, if not always convenient, about putting pen to paper. The latest book to join a growing library of digitally inspired writing platforms is Rocketbook, and it does so with an interesting twist. In addition to shooting handwritten notes and doodles to the cloud, when it fills up users can stick the book in the microwave to wipe its pages clean.  Read More

It may not be as glamorous as building vehicles that go faster, fly higher or shoot more beautiful images, but making drones less likely to crash into walls and people's faces is pretty critical to advancing the technology all the same. One company working on this problem is the team at Panoptes, which has just launched a Kickstarter campaign for eBumper4, an obstacle avoidance system that can be slapped on two of the more popular consumer drones to stop them running into things.  Read More

High-end smartphones sure can snap a pretty picture these days. This fact alone means it won't be easy for HTC to win over mobile photographers with its pocket-size RE camera. Billed as an easy-to-grip device that shoots photos and video with a new level of convenience, HTC is looking to cater to those times when a memory is begging to be captured but your smartphone is out of arms reach or buried in your bag. We've spent the last month playing around with the RE, and though it won't be for everyone, its quirky design and well-rounded capabilities certainly offer a different kind of shooting experience.  Read More

Scientists have developed drug-carrying nanoparticles capable of targeting cancer tissue in the lungs. By engineering the devices to release their payloads only once they reach the site of the tumor, the researchers hope to reduce the size of dosages required and also limit the side effects of conventional treatments.  Read More

Opho's Keys keyboard takes the Guitar Hero approach to learning a musical instrument

There's something pretty fulfilling about nailing those floating, colorful notes in Guitar Hero, a feeling that a company named Incident adapted to a more lifelike guitar in 2012 to pretty good effect. The firm has rebranded itself as Opho and is now singing a slightly different tune, launching a LED-lit keyboard based on the same, super-addictive learning principle.  Read More
