Despite a plague of reports of hardware failures and system faults, it seems at the very least that the PlayStation 4 is tornado-proof. “That’s the face of a man with homeowner’s insurance.”
Two scientists have created a thin, scalable and effective radar cloaking device which could be used to hide just about anything
A new discovery has dramatically increased the conductivity of a crystal, potentially leading to dramatic increases in computer chip performance.
Astronomers have finally determined that black hole jets are composed of matter, rather than a combination of matter and antimatter particles.
Firemen in Austria have claimed to have witnessed the first ever robot suicide when a cleaning robot ‘rebelled’ against its orders and climbed onto a hotplate to end its monotonous existence.
The WWF reported yesterday that one of the most endangered mammals on the planet had been photographed in a Vietnamese forest.
The Sun’s two hemispheres inverse in polarity approximately every 11 years, and scientists are now saying that the current cycle of change may have already begun.
A new theory shows that a single star could collapse into two black holes, providing an explanation for how super-massive black holes existed in the early universe.
A new traffic model which makes use of robotic cars with altered reaction times, may be able to reduce congestion by providing a more true-to-life simulation.
A new discovery at Chalmers University in Sweden could lead to a cure for Alzheimer’s by finding malfunctioning protein aggregates with lasers and removing them with photo-acoustics.

A new device combines a microbial fuel cell and photoelectrochemical fuel cell uses nothing but sunlight and waste energy to produce hydrogen gas.
The US Army is calling on private research and development organizations to help it develop suits of armor that give soldiers ‘superhuman strength’ and display an in-helmet HUD showing technical and health information, much like the armor seen used by Tony Stark in Marvel’s Iron Man series.
A new carbon structure has been discovered and it may be the strongest material yet. However, curious properties also give it interesting electronic and energy storage applications.
Researchers have found that by folding paper-based Li-Ion batteries, the energy density of the cells can be increased 14 times.
For the first time, an experimental fusion reactor in the US has broken even, providing more energy than is absorbed by the fuel.
