Boeing has rolled out the first 787-9 Dreamliner variant at its Everett, Washington assembly plant. The second of three variants of the Dreamliner, the 787-9 carries more passengers and has a greater range than the 787-8 that has been in operation since 2011. The first 787-9 is scheduled to be delivered to Air New Zealand next year.  Read More

The Sony Alpha A3000 may look like a DSLR, but it is actually a mirrorless camera

Sony has announced the latest addition to its Alpha line-up of DSLR-like cameras the Alpha A3000. But while previous devices like the A99 and A57 weren't technically DSLRs because they use translucent mirror technology, the A3000 goes one further by doing away with the mirror altogether. Also announced is the NEX-5T, another mirrorless camera from Sony which packs NFC wireless connectivity into a slim body.  Read More

MeMover is a new Danish design for personal mobility

A Danish design company is working on a new personal transportation device that combines the high-intensity workout offered by a step machine with the zip of a bicycle. It's called the Me-Mover, and it should be available next year.  Read More

The tailbot, a running, jumping mobile sensor that can maneuver in mid-air with its tail (...

Imagine mobile sensor networks that run around, jump and maneuver in the air to get the job done. That's what Jianguo Zhao is working towards; his design for such networks involves biologically-inspired sensors in the form of robots with little tails. These "tailbots" are expected to have applications in areas ranging from search and rescue to surveillance and environmental monitoring.  Read More

The Pogo is designed to protect headphones by allowing them to break away when pulled

A new device called the Pogo is aimed at protecting headphones or earbuds, as it is designed to allow them to break away if pulled, instead of snapping off their plug.  Read More

The US Department of Energy will be using fuel cells to power the refrigeration units of f...

The refrigeration units used in cold transport trailers are typically powered by small diesel engines, which use up non-renewable fuel and release greenhouse gases, just like their big brothers. The US Department of Energy, however, is looking into an alternative. As part of a two-year pilot project, it’s equipping four such trailers with clean-running hydrogen fuel cells.  Read More

Samsung has announced production of the first solid state drives (SSD) based on its new 3D V-NAND flash memory. V-NAND flash memories read and write twice as fast as conventional NAND memories, and last 10 times longer while consuming 50 percent less power. At present, the 3D chips offer about the same physical bit density as do more conventional NAND flash memory chips, but while 2D geometries are reaching the end state of their scaling potential, the 3D chips offer as much as two orders of magnitude of additional elbow room for denser devices.  Read More

Plans are underway to provide a digital alternative to traditional autopsy (Photo: Shutter...

By using raw data from Multi Slice Computerized Tomography (MSCT) and processing it through sophisticated software on high performance computer systems, Malaysian entrepreneur Mathavan (Matt) Chandran hopes to largely negate the need to slice open bodies at autopsy. His digital autopsy software exploits the power of existing 2D and 3D imaging and visualization equipment to observe and investigate the human body using high definition imagery.  Read More

The Taxi of Tomorrow is being built today

Well, it’s official: this is the future. It must be, as the Nissan NV200-based “Taxi of Tomorrow” is now being manufactured. The vehicle marks the culmination of a project run by the Taxi and Limousine Commission of New York City, in which taxi drivers, owners and passengers were asked to submit ideas for what features should go into a purpose-built NYC taxi cab.  Read More
