Congratulations to Paramount, which is finally in court on a $27 million lawsuit for failing to actually place a product from a product placement deal. Yeah. On one side is Paramount, the studio behind the Transformers franchise, and on the other side is a Chinese business who paid them to put even more logos in the…
A professor in China apparently made his late students write out 1,000 emoticons by hand after being late to class. ┐(‘～`；)┌
Finding a site to build a nuclear power plant isn’t straightforward—so why not send them out to sea? That’s what China is apparently planning to do.
This is madness. Like, seriously what in the hell is going on. In northern China, multiple bulldozers apparently got so mad at each other that they started one of the craziest demolition derbies I’ve ever seen on a public road. It’s a legitimate royal rumble between heavy machinery. There are normal cars on the street…
If humans are to live anywhere that isn’t Earth, we’ll need to be able to reproduce elsewhere in space. Now, a series of experiments performed by Chinese researchers show that mammalian embryos can “develop completely” in orbit.
Fireworks, which were invented in China, are obviously a big deal in China. But no fireworks show in any part of the country and very probably the world can match the sheer spectacle and beautiful audacity of the fireworks show in Nuanquan, China. That’s because it’s more of a molten metal show. A blacksmith, wearing…
While the US is making slow but steady progress toward an autonomous future, China is fast-tracking plans to get self-driving vehicles on the road. And one of the chief forces behind this revolution is an engineer who recently worked at Google competitor Intel.
Like a smoker who keeps trying to quit but sneaks a drag when he thinks nobody’s looking, China is slowly weaning itself off coal. Last winter, the Chinese government released preliminary statistics showing that its coal consumption had dropped 2.9 percent in 2014. But that number may be obfuscating the truth about…
The SAT, the standardized test taken by high school seniors to burnish their college applications, was administered nearly 1.7 million times last year. The test’s popularity within college admissions is based, in part, on the perception of fairness: As any recent test-taker is well aware, it is extremely difficult to…
While Windows 10 has been a success in much of the world, it hasn’t had a great rollout in China. In a bid to improve things a little, Microsoft has been working on a unique version of 10 for China’s government, with fewer games and more worker oversight.
A new report from Michigan State University is praising China’s efforts to roll back decades of deforestation and habitat destruction, noting that there are major implications for global climate change and local biodiversity.
According to Reuters, the Chinese city of Shenzen is experimenting with electronic tracking of vehicles. Depending on your slant, this could either be a big step forward for driverless cars, or an autocratic regime run wild.
The world’s biggest consumer drone maker is back with its smartest compact quadcopter yet: The Phantom 4 automatically dodges obstacles, takes amazing video in all directions, and makes you look like a drone pro—even if you’ve never touched one before.
When most escalators break down they just temporarily become stairs (as the Mitch Hedberg joke goes). But this one decided to glitch in a way that actively ruined the days of the people riding it.
China’s become known for some of the zaniest, prettiest, most daring architecture of the 21st century. Sadly, that’s all coming to a halt, as the government is now banning any new buildings that are dubbed “oversized,” “xenocentric,” or “weird.”
China just tightened its control over online publishing with a restrictive set of rules that would shut down foreign outlets and foreign gaming companies—If they’re enforced as written.
America is getting crushed by China. Not in trade or weapons or any of those things that don’t matter. We’re losing the war of the Roseys. Don’t believe me? Take a look at the new robot above, serving up deliciousness at a farmhouse restaurant in Sanmenxia, China.
China is building the biggest radio telescope on Earth. And the country is displacing over 9,000 people to do it.
Shun Hung Square is a 1,260-foot tall skyscraper that’s the third tallest building in Shenzhen, China. It’s really, really tall. And watching the guys from On the Roofs climb it gets more and more stressful because they just keep going up. You think they’ve reached the top but there’s still another level that’s…
