Spectacular View and Hair Raising Descent Caught On Video Baumgartner’s record setting Red Bull Stratos space jump. A 3d printed case saved the day after a weather balloon powered flight to the far side of our stratosphere captured breathtaking footage of the Grand Canyon and environs. We haven’t visited -by video that is – the
Mammals weighing more than 3 kilograms all tend to urinate for 21 Seconds. Such is the stuff of Ig Noble prizes. The annual spoof awards were handed out on September 17th at Harvard’s Sanders Theater to mark a 25th year of honoring arcane, if actual research “that makes you laugh, then think,” – the criteria
Joel Meeks-Matous updates us on his company – TMM Disruptive Advanced Materials – plans to work with a commercial nanotube reactor, building a Nanotechnology Business Accelerator, and his invitation to TechCrunch DISRUPT-SF 2015. We caught up by phone for a leisurely Saturday afternoon conversation at odds with the frenzied pace of nanotech business. Daily announcements
Big guys stumble. Google did it with ‘+.’ Microsoft does it every other operating system. Apple’s last version, iOS8, had a rocky start. It raises a question: If tech giants design with large budgets and top coders, why do they so regularly f- it up? Answer: software business is like herding cats. iOS8’s near immediate
Veronica Brown’s daughter Andrea is pregnant. The elder Brown sued Netflix over the movie site’s alleged role in the conception of as yet unnamed ‘Baby Brown.’ But let’s call Andrea ‘DeeDee,’ as the young woman refers to herself in a rambling video describing the events of that sordid evening. A quick perusal of YouTube revealed
Man-on-a-mission Mike Strizki first hit my radar three years back via YouTube video of his self designed hydrogen-powered home. A recent appearance on Coast to Coast AM spurred follow up on this revolutionary engineer/inventor. Talk about timing; Strizki’s been busy turning a very good idea into a polished consumer product released on 9/11 of this
I can remember like it’s yesterday. Our family friend swerved to miss a jack rabbit, only to sever his spine in the resulting car accident. He’s still in a wheelchair four decades later. 200,000 similar injuries occur each year. Now basic science demonstrating real treatment could see patients walk again through a collaboration between five
It’s got a rockin’ processor – an A9x chip with spare room for hungry apps, and a drive controller straight out of a MacBook. So why, 4 days after hitting the market, aren’t regular ‘6’ owners jumping for newer and better. These are Apple customers after all, so taking the price hit for quality and
A simple process produces carpets of carbon nanotubes that act as radio antenna for light. The tubes are synthesized at the size of incoming waves, and fabricated with tiny rectifiers to convert solar energy into direct current. Nanotubes conduct heat with near perfection, so resulting devices operate without need for cooling – a big plus
Imagine: You and your robot buddy lie wounded by a drone attack on a future battlefield. The blast leaves you bloodied, and your droid jigging with broken connections. Super soldier metabolism speeds your natural healing, but can the robot regain function? After all, you’ve got a few million years of perfected biology on your side.
Nvidia’s name and angular, viridescent logo play on the Latin iNvidia – envy. Yesterday’s announcement of an $8 all you can eat, Netflix style game subscription promises to keep their ‘green with envy’ slogan relevant. Cut-throat competition, light speed hardware/software evolution and a fickle public leave change the loan constant in video gaming. Acres of
Germans can’t speak against the rising tide of Arab immigrants flooding Northern Europe. The penalty for public sentiment against continued migration from war-torn Syria is 90 days in Jail or a 5000 Euro fine. Imagine our surprise on discovering Facebook works to enforce the policy. We’re not talking racial slurs here, though that accusation is

2015 Game Changing Year in Treatment Dark humor for a dark topic—cancer. Surgery, radiation and chemo have their victories, but survival time lines aren’t much different than years back.

The world’s first unbreakable fishing rod, heralded as “the most sensitive, smooth casting” of its kind was announced by G-Rod International at the jump-off of ICAST 2015, an annual fishing industry gathering.

In a ballsy maneuver requiring a billion or more in new investment, popular ride hailing service Uber is set to further tackle the Chinese market in another step toward global domination of the ridesharing sector. The move isn’t without dangers. According to CEO Travis Kalanick, Uber China now completes almost 1 million rides a day,
End Times a Comin’ But when exactly? Smokey oblivion seems remote, but clear signs of impending trouble make planning for the worst an uncomfortable reality. Even those who cringe at ‘prepper’ now dip a toe in paranoid – call it vigilance – as they contemplate how and when to abandon familiar digs. Before you pack
The photo of James ‘Whitey’ Bulger revisiting Alcatraz with girl-friend-on-the-lamb Catherine Grieg is pure Disney Land – jail house striped costumes seen through steel bars, he with ball and chain, she holding mug with logo.
