A new two- and three-bits-per-cell technology from Intel and Micron allows for 3.5 TB flas...

Flash storage technology will soon see a three-fold improvement in data density thanks to a joint development at Intel and Micron that will allow the production of 3.5 TB flash sticks and 10 TB standard-sized SSDs. Meanwhile, a new 48-layer cell technology development by Toshiba could pave the way for higher write speeds, more reliability and lower costs in solid state drives.  Read More

In two claimed firsts, researchers at the University of Manchester have produced both the first commercial application of graphene and the world's first graphene light-bulb. It is expected that this new device will have lower energy emissions, cheaper manufacturing costs, and a longer running life than even LED lights. And this isn't just a pie-in-the-sky prototype, either. The team who developed it believes that the graphene light-bulb will be available for retail sale within months.  Read More

Moving media between iOS devices for sharing or backup storage can be a hassle, especially without an internet connection. The iKlips, the first dual (USB and Lightning) flash drive to feature a USB 3.0 connector, promises to make things easier (and faster than the competition) by offering a faster, more convenient way to store and exchange files between iOS devices, Macs and PCs.  Read More

The active 3D LED LCD touch display boasts a resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 pixels and sits atop a computer-packing pedestal with up to 24 terabytes of removable storage.  Read More

The kSafe is a smart safe designed to help users manage their temptations

The kSafe is a smart safe designed to turn temptation into motivation by locking items away until the user has earned them through either hitting an activity goal, spending time at a specific location such as a library, or simply waiting until a pre-determined time for the lid to unlock. The device is currently the subject of a crowdfunding campaign.  Read More

The Laser Drone on the prowl

The ability to view real-time video from a quadcopter's onboard camera is certainly a handy feature, but let's be honest – there are probably a lot of people who just think, "Wouldn't be great if I could use this to shoot at stuff?". Well, German cyberpunk weapons tinkerer Patrick Priebe has adapted an off-the-shelf drone so it can do just that – using a laser.  Read More

The Blue Freedom brings hydropower to your backpack

The all-new Blue Freedom kit offers yet another alternative to solar panels, fuel cells, muscle-powered dynamos, wind turbines, AC-charged back-up batteries and other portable power solutions. "The world's smallest hydropower plant" transforms the power of running water into phone chatting, internet browsing, music listening, GPS navigating and other mobile device activities, and it does so from a package built to fit in a backpack.  Read More
