A classic look on one side, a digital smartwatch below

For years, fitness monitors and smartwatches have packed a lot of cool functionality into rather unflattering packages. Unlike a stylish analog timepiece, a bulging digital watch with glow-in-the-dark numbers doesn't necessarily look great with a suit or even casual-Friday ensemble. To get the timeless look of a true analog face, however, you have to give up some of the smartwatch convenience of a digital display. Or do you? IFit has another solution: a rotating watch case that has a digital display on one side and a traditional analog face on the other.  Read More

Paddling lakes, bays and rivers by kayak is a rewarding experience, but it can also be quite tiring. That's why Klepper offers paddlers the benefit of a solar-powered electric drive in its E-Kayak. The paddler can kick back and let the small motor take over the forward-floating load. The design adds a little modern-day technology and convenience to Klepper's classic folding kayak.  Read More

Girella rolls out and folds down to become an occasional bed

Chairs which fold out to become occasional beds are nothing new, but we haven't previously seen one that works in quite the same way as the Girella from Campeggi.

Researchers at the University of California, Riverside say they have found a way around th...

Researchers at the University of California, Riverside (UCR) have developed a silicon anode for lithium-ion batteries that outperforms current materials and gets around previous issues that would cause the battery to be inefficient and quickly degrade (or even fail catastrophically) with use. As the researchers focus on scaling up production, the advance could pave the way for higher-performance electric vehicles, electronics and all-around portable power.  Read More

Elon Musk's Hyperloop is going to become a reality, but not quite on the grand scale it was originally conceived for just yet. Hyperloop Transportation Technologies (HTT) has reached an agreement to build a 5-mile (8-km) passenger track for Quay Valley, a proposed "sustainable model town for the 21st century" in California's central valley.  Read More

The Piaggio P.1HH HammerHead made its maiden flight last December, and the aircraft has al...

There's little doubt that drones will play an increasingly prevalent role in our skies in the future, so any aircraft manufacturer that wants to stay ahead of the curve is either already building them, has some in the pipeline, or is madly trying to get them up and flying. Piaggio Aerospace is not a newcomer to the game of flight by any stretch of the imagination, being one of the oldest airplane manufacturers in the world. It is, however, perceived as more of a civilian and business aircraft manufacturer. But it is determined to make its mark in the lucrative defense and security sector and the successful maiden test flight of its Prototype 001 P.1HH HammerHead UAS is an important step down that path.  Read More

There has been plenty of opposition to London's proposed Garden Bridge based on its design, location and management. Now, however, a new bridge further up the Thames has grabbed people's attention. Designs for the proposed Nine Elms to Pimlico bridge range from the understated to the absurd.  Read More
