Set to launch in early 2016, the Mercedes-Maybach Pullman is a stretched ultra-luxury motor car with face-to-face rear seating.  Read More

The new Bentley Continental GT Speed

Bentley hasn't yet announced anything too groundbreaking for the Geneva Motor Show, though an all-new sports coupe concept and the much-publicized Bentayaga SUV (yep, that's really the name) seem to be possibilities. Whether or not either of those new models make an appearance, we do know that the Continental GT line will get freshened up at the show. Revisions include more W12 power, modest restyling and new options.  Read More

Clef uses an animation instead of an unlock code

It's had a good run, but the password's time is up. Remembering a unique unlock code for dozens of websites and apps is no longer very practical or very safe, and many different companies are exploring what comes next. One of those companies is Clef, which has developed a two-step verification system that uses an animated wave on your phone to confirm your identity.  Read More

Supermassive black holes are titanic oddities. Usually sited at the core of galaxies and various high-energy phenomena such as quasars, their mass can be anywhere from that of a hundred thousand to billions of suns. Now observations from NASA and ESA space telescopes are shedding light on the incredibly powerful cosmic winds they produce, which can have more energy than an entire galaxy.  Read More

An ingredient found in extra-virgin olive oil called oleocanthal has been known as a compound capable of killing a variety of human cancer cells, but how this process actually played out was not understood. Now, a team of researchers has uncovered not only how oleocanthal destroys cancer cells, but that it is able to do so while leaving healthy cells unharmed.  Read More

We've been hearing a lot about the antibacterial qualities of silver, with silver nanoparticles finding use in everything from water filters to food packaging. Unfortunately, there are also concerns about the toxicity of those particles, particularly when they enter our bodies. Now, however, Polish scientists have developed what they claim is a safer alternative – an antibacterial coating that kills microbes using gold.  Read More

Downhill skis may give you an unmatched feeling of freedom and exhilaration when you're actually skiing, but they can be quite awkward to carry when you're not on the slopes. That's why a group of Spanish entrepreneurs has created the SkiTaker system. It allows users to clip the ends of their skis onto the sides of their boots, then "walk" their skis around vaguely like upside-down stilts.  Read More

McLaren's P1 GTR is set for a Geneva debut next month

McLaren has drawn on its illustrious past to launch one of its most exciting cars for the future. A production-ready P1 GTR will be displayed at the Geneva Motor Show, finished in the same color scheme that adorned its famous namesake, the F1 GTR. The P1 GTR is a fully stripped out, tuned up, track-only version of the McLaren's insane hybrid P1 hypercar, designed to showcase just how far Woking's finest engineers can push the performance envelope.  Read More

Comet 67P as seen from an altitude of 8.7 km (5.4 mi) (Image: ESA/Rosetta/NavCam)

In a space-age game of chicken, the European Space Agency's (ESA) Rosetta probe made its closest approach to comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko last weekend. The spacecraft, which has ceased orbiting the comet due to 67P's increased activity as it approaches the Sun, came within 6 km (3.7 mi) of the surface over the Imhotep region of the larger of the comet’s two lobes, with the up close and personal maneuver taking place, appropriately enough, on Valentine's Day.  Read More
