We've kept a pretty keen eye on the standing desk movement here at Gizmag. After all, us writers can spend fair chunks of time on our backsides. The team behind MisterBrightLight is the latest to take a stand on the stubborn nature of standard office furniture, launching a smart desk whose height can be adjusted by hand gestures when you've been seated for too long.  Read More

Tsukiji Room H is a bedsit in Tokyo that uses a central unit to partition the room and ada...

Making good use of a small room often needs clever thinking. Designs like the All I Own House and Kitoko Studio's maid's room conversion in Paris use sliding furniture to reconfigure space as required. A Tokyo bedsit does the same and to the same effect, but in a much simpler way.  Read More

As the quality of tablets has gone up, the minimum cost to get a halfway decent one has gone down. Read on, as Gizmag reviews one of Amazon's most aggressively-priced products yet, the US$99 Fire HD 6 tablet.  Read More

The CUP system is claimed to be the world's fastest 2D camera (Image: Lihong Wang, PhD)

Researchers at Washington University in St.Louis have built what they claim is the world's fastest 2D receive-only camera, which is able to capture images at a rate of up to 100 billion frames per second. Using a technique called Compressed Ultrafast Photography (CUP), the researchers have so far taken photographs of a number of properties of light propagation and behavior that are already pushing the dimensional limits of fundamental physics.  Read More

The Antikythera Mechanism is the world's oldest computer (Photo: Giovanni Dall Orto)

Since its discovery over a century ago, the Antikythera Mechanism has had scholars scratching their heads over how the Greeks managed to build a mechanical computer a hundred years before the birth of Christ and thousands of years before anything similar. But now things have become even stranger as researchers claim that it's over a hundred years older than previously believed and may have been built by a famous hand.  Read More

Micronautix Triton concept: front seats for all

Perhaps one of the reasons most people are so blasé about the miracle of human flight these days is that for the most part, we're totally cut off from it. Peering through the milky, scratched glass of a passenger plane window offers just a tiny, claustrophobic glimpse of the world falling away beneath you - what the pilot sees would make the layman's heart sing with joy. And that's the simple thought behind the Triton concept design – to give passengers the most involving and magnificent experience possible, and maybe even inspire them to become pilots themselves.  Read More

Sometimes it seems as if the history of spaceflight is a long exercise in oneupsmanship with each agency trying to top the others. Case in point is Japan's Hayabusa2 mission, which, following the landing of Philae on on comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko last month, the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) confirmed was successfully launched today at 1:22:04 pm JST from the Tanegashima Space Center on a mission to not only land on an asteroid, but to bomb it.  Read More

It is very unlikely that anyone who ever gets to drive one of these cars will have a net w...

Ferrari's new 1035-hp, 900-Nm FXX K (for KERS) hybrid is based on the 950-hp limited-edition LaFerrari hybrid supercar though it will never be sold or raced in sanctioned competition. Completely unfettered by homologation and racing regulations, the FXX K is part of a new research and development programme similar to the 599XX and FXX programmes which essentially involve laboratory cars designed specifically for the track and reserved for a select group of exclusive Ferrari client test drivers.  Read More

The Nubrella has been redesigned for better visibility and comfort

About four years ago, we took a look at the Nubrella, a hands-free wearable umbrella that looked like a rain-deflecting space helmet … only somehow bigger and goofier. Well, in those four years, we haven't seen a single person wearing one in public. Sensing a bit of that lack of enthusiasm, Nubrella's designers went back to the drawing board and came up with a new rain-deflecting space helmet design.  Read More

For millions of people, bicycles are more than just a source of recreation – they're a depended-upon means of transportation. Unfortunately for many of those people, however, they can't afford to buy decent parts when their old ones wear out. That's why Arizona-based bicycle advocacy nonprofit One Street Components has announced a new project, which will allow partnering groups to make shift levers from readily-available materials including scrap aluminum and bottle caps.  Read More
