9:12 PM | This $149K high tech bracelet is powered by wrist’s motion
Smart watches and wearable technology are latest things these days. Now, Christophe & Co. have combined high-technology with luxury jewellery in their Armill series.Christophe & Co. designed these wearables to incorporate small rotors that charge their batteries like automatic or auto quartz watches to generate power via the motion of one’s wrist. The company claims that the power reserve can be up to one year, and with frequent wear, users won’t ever need to charge […]

6:59 PM | Large Hadron Collider restart back on track
On Monday, teams working on the Large Hadron Collider resolved a problem that had been delaying the restart of the accelerator, according to a statement from CERN. Image: Maximilien Brice, CERNOn March 24, the European physics laboratory announced that a short circuit to ground had occurred in one of the connections with an LHC magnet. LHC magnets are superconducting, which means that they can maintain a high electrical current with zero electrical resistance. To be superconducting, the LHC […]

5:42 PM | The 5th Generation F-35 Pilots Will Be Equipped With A $400,000 Fighter Helmet
Since its inception, the U.S. Air Force’s new F-35 fighter jet has been riddled with issues. Technical flaws, cost overruns and other delays have caused the total cost of the F-35 program to nearly double to $400 billion (with an estimated lifetime cost of up to $1.5 trillion). In fact, the new F-35 program is Pentagon’s most expensive weapons program ever. The $400,000 helmet that each F-35 pilot will be equipped with may be the cherry on […]

5:37 PM | Blue freedom hydropower generator can charge gadgets from flowing water
Using solar panels is a very convenient way to keep your devices charged when you are away from civilization, but if there’s flowing water in the vicinity there’s a new option: the Blue Freedom Hydropower Generator. This small power plant weighs less than a pound and features a hydrodynamic turbine that attaches to a 70 inch long rope-like drive shaft. Secure the donut shaped device around a stick jammed into the ground, drop the turbine in water, and Blue Freedom’s […]

3:00 PM | BMW’s electric truck is ready to hit the roads
BMW has announced it will be the first carmaker to use a 40-ton truck powered purely by electricity to deliver inbound parts. The carmaker has teamed up with German logistics provider SCHERM Group on a pilot project that will see the electric truck deliver material to the BMW Munich plant eight times a day from SCHERM’s logistics facility 2 km away. Although most of us find trucks as slow moving objects that just take up space on the highway, the concerned authorities are […]

2:53 PM | Electric cars will act as mini power plants in future for providing power to cities
Can you imagine our cars may become mini-power plants. Yes, this is going to become a reality; San Diego Gas & Electric is showing how it’s going to be done.The California utility company has begun bidding resources from a group of electric vehicles and energy storage systems into the state’s wholesale power market. The pilot program, one of the first of its kind, is meant to provide insight into how electric vehicles and other kinds of distributed energy can make the grid […]

8:20 AM | This Greenhouse collects water from air to water crops
For dry areas of the world in summer season, its very difficult to grow crops with rainwater. Another source of water for collection can be dew. Roots Up has designed a greenhouse for use in dry and hot atmospheres that collects dew for irrigating the crops inside. As we know the collected water is meant for watering the crops contained within the greenhouse. However, it can also be used as drinking water if needed. So this greenhouse is basically has multifunctional purposes, grow food […]

5:35 AM | The Immortal Jellyfish
I had recently come across a set of articles which discussed an interesting adaptation which is unique to only one species of jellyfish- known as the Turritopsis dohrnii- and that is the ability to be immortal.   This jellyfish, known as the Turritopsis dohrnii,  has the capacity to live on (almost) indefinitely by being able to revert to its premature, polyp […]

On Jan. 23, Louis Jordan set sail from a marina in Conway, South Carolina. Jordan was embarking on what he thought would be a short fishing trip. His plan was to sail out to the Gulf Stream to, “catch some big ones”. But not long after he set out on his voyage, disaster struck: “On the way there, my boat capsized. I was actually sleeping, that’s when it happened. The whole boat had turned around, and I was flying through the air somersaulting and

1:46 AM | 100, 000 Years Later?
It’s a morbid thought, that humans may one day no longer walk the planet. But in reality, we all face extinction at any day, whether it be by a rampaging killer-disease, or a black hole.
