The Power Pen can work as a pen, stylus or a 700 mAh backup battery for your phone

The choices abound when it comes to external charging solutions these days, but one idea we haven’t come across, at least not in the era of today’s smartphone, is a writing pen with a backup battery packed inside.  Read More

An autonomous spaceport drone ship will act as the landing target for the Falcon 7

On Friday, the Dragon CRS-5 mission lifts off from Space Launch Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station atop a Falcon 9 v1.1 rocket. If the launch is successful, the unmanned Dragon spacecraft will carry supplies and experiments to the ISS, but that part is almost routine. What is unusual is that SpaceX has confirmed that it will not only attempt a powered landing of the Falcon 9 booster, but will do so as a precision landing on a robotic sea barge.  Read More

Weight is the enemy of almost all things enjoyable about motoring: acceleration, braking, ...

EDAG traditionally produces a concept car incorporating "new thought" for the Geneva Motor Show each year and the 2015 concept car might initially stretch your imagination beyond normal limits. The EDAG Light Cocoon Concept uses a weatherproof textile instead of the traditional metal skin for the car's panels, stretched over a bionically-inspired trellis body structure, then back-lit for effect.  Read More

Gizmag takes three Mercedes AMG cars for a spin, including the S500 Plug-in Hybrid AMG Lin...

The problem with spending a day driving £300,000+ worth of cars is that driving home in your own worn out old banger makes a measured article tricky to write. Such is my issue having spent last Friday with three of Mercedes' top-end AMGs, the C300 BlueTEC Hybrid Saloon AMG Line – the S500 Plug-in Hybrid AMG Line L and the S63 AMG Coupé. So apologies in advance for any gushing.  Read More

2014 was quite the year for smartphones. Just when it looked like they had plateaued in all the key areas, phone-makers hit us with several amazing handsets during the last few months of the year. Join Gizmag, as we break down our five favorite smartphones of 2014.  Read More

The X PlusOne functions as both a hovering quadcopter and a forward-flying fixed-wing airc...

Both Google and Belgium's Katholieke Universiteit Leuven are working on drone-based delivery projects that utilize UAVs which take off and land vertically, but that can also tip sideways to transition into fast and efficient fixed-wing flight. If you're thinking that it would be neat to purchase a consumer drone that could do the same thing – combining the hovering capability of a quadcopter with the speed of a "flying wing"-type plane – a new one may soon be available, in the form of the X PlusOne.  Read More

The minute particles seen in this microscope image actually make up 38 percent of the volu...

When a mineral is the most abundant on the planet, (making up an estimated 38 percent of the Earth's entire volume, in fact), you would think that someone would have given it a name by now. But things are never as simple as they seem. Despite being so prevalent, the substance in question has only ever existed in synthetic form until recently, and the first naturally-occurring example of it didn't even come from beneath the ground; it arrived from outer space.  Read More

New thought propagates at the speed of light in the digital age, and there was no greater testimony to this than the World Flyboard Cup held in Dubai last weekend. Frankie Zapata conceived the Flyboard in Spring 2011, rapidly prototyped and developed the sub-$10,000 PWC attachment inside a few weeks and last week saw the third running of the world championship. The 86 competitors were selected via video from 29 countries and our photo essay leaves little doubt as to the expertise that has been achieved in this brand new extreme sport over just three years. Bravo!  Read More

The special editions are powered by the standard Vanquish 6.0-liter V12

Like its competitors in the premium car segment, Aston Martin is always looking for ways to make its customers feel more special in their high-end performance cars. Pursuit of that goal leads to regular special editions like the Vantage N430 and DB9 Carbon Black revealed at this year's Geneva Motor Show. Its latest special edition release goes beyond the usual custom equipment, aesthetics and trim, with each of the six individual Works 60th Anniversary models featuring metal recycled from the engine of a heritage Aston Martin.  Read More
