I’ve had a basic electronic lock on my door for a few months now, so when Poly-Control offered me the more sophisticated Bluetooth- and Z-Wave-enabled Danalock to review, I was curious to see what it could do.

When I saw BotFactory's Squink in action at MakerCon in New York last month, it was one of those innovations that took a few minutes to sink in. It looks like a modified 3D printer, but it does much more. In essence, it is a home factory in a single package.  Read More

Recently on display during the 2014 Monaco Yacht Show, CRN shipyard's Chopi Chopi boasts immense proportions and is more like a floating mansion compared to your traditional superyacht.

Worth over US$110 million, the entire yacht took 660,000 hours to complete and the displacement hull was built from aluminum and steel.  Read More
