The stunning 3D Printed House and its rooms (Made of Salt)

Those following the news in the 3D printing industry might be aware that the 3D printing of buildings isn’t so Sci-Fi as it sounds anymore.

Picture of the Day: The thinnest anticorrosive coating

  New research has established graphene as the thinnest known coating for protecting metals against corrosion.

Graphene-metal combination may shrink electronics

Researchers have discovered that creating a graphene-copper-graphene “sandwich” strongly enhances the heat conducting properties of copper, a discovery that could further help in the downscaling of electronics.

‘Breathing’ battery to power next-gen tech? Meet Li-Air battery!

Sales of electric vehicles (EVs) nearly doubled in 2013, but most won’t take you farther than 100 miles on one charge. To boost their range toward a tantalizing 300 miles or more, researchers are reporting new progress on a “breathing” battery that has the potential to one day replace the lithium-ion technology of today’s EVs.

Substance found in humans fights brain damage from stroke

A molecular substance that occurs naturally in humans and rats was found to “substantially reduce” brain damage after an acute stroke and contribute to a better recovery, according to a newly released animal study by researchers at Henry Ford Hospital.

Global warming continues

A team of investigators from the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) in New York determined in a recent study that our planet will most likely continue to get warmer throughout this century, despite the recent slowdown recorded over the past couple of years.

Flying above the plains of Venus with an… inflatable aircraft

Engineers with defense and aerospace contractor Northrop Grumman and Tustin, California-based smart space technology company L’Garde announce the development of a new concept airplane, which could fly in the skies above Venus for up to a year. Such an asset could reveal a multitude of new data about our neighboring world, which features temperatures significantly […]

Artificial composting islands the future of NYC Sanitation?

New York City produces about 14 million tons of garbage a year, so you can imagine the energy and resources required to move and process it all. In order to tackle this issue, the folks over at Present Architecture have come up with a creative, double-duty solution called the Green Loop.

Can sugar power electronics of the future?

  Researchers are harnessing the power of sugar to fuel electronics.

Samsung Galaxy S5 vs. iPhone 5s

Until Apple takes the stage to unveil the iPhone 6, this is probably going to be the biggest rivalry in smartphones: the iPhone 5s vs. the Samsung Galaxy S5. Torn between the two? Join us, as we compare the features and specs of Apple’s and Samsung’s latest flagships.

Algae’s chances as a biofuel now increased

Lab success doesn’t always translate to real-world success. A team of Michigan State University scientists, however, has invented a new technology that increases the odds of helping algae-based biofuels cross that gap and come closer to reality.

Secondhand smoke linked to pregnancy complications

Secondhand smoking is linked with pregnancy loss, including miscarriage, stillbirth and tubal ectopic pregnancy, according to new research from scientists at Roswell Park Cancer Institute (RPCI) and the University at Buffalo (UB). The study findings, published online by the journal Tobacco Control, mark a significant step toward clarifying the risks of secondhand smoke exposure.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 is here

With Samsung officially unveiling the Galaxy S5 at Mobile World Congress, we finally have the details of the Korean company’s next flagship smartphone. Read on for all the fun.

Hydrogen inexpensive production with the Sun’s help

Generating electricity is not the only way to turn sunlight into energy we can use on demand. The sun can also drive reactions to create chemical fuels, such as hydrogen, that can in turn power cars, trucks and trains.

Windows 8.1 Update 1 is Official
