It’s a lot to ask a machine to be both a laptop and a tablet, but Acer comes damn close to nailing it with its new Switch Alpha 12. To make it work, Acer had to get weird with design.
Have you ever tried to imagine what a building built from one half US Capitol, and one half Beijing’s Temple of Heaven would look like? Somebody in China has, and you can see the result in the image above.
It took a couple tries, but Microsoft finally had a critical hit with the Surface Pro 3. It was what we wanted the first Surface to be. It wasn’t perfect, but it was pretty damn useable. But at $800 (and going up to nearly $2,000), it’s also expensive. The Surface 3 is Microsoft’s attempt to get in on that…
French artist Cal Redback is a master of digital photo retouching. His new work, called Treebeards, is a collection of creepy hyper-realistic portraits of human-plant hybrids and a clear proof of his amazing Photoshop skills.
When we first wrote about Cherkees—the beef jerky potato chip hybrid—we called it "the pinnacle of human innovation." Granted, we may have gotten slightly carried away, but the concept of getting our required daily dose of jerky and chip simultaneously? What an amazing time-saver! Unfortunately, delays plagued these…
After looking at this tree, capable of producing 40 different varieties of fruit, the why (cobbler) was pretty clear. But just what makes it possible for all those different fruits to grow on a single tree?
Writing instruments contain a weird, almost alchemical power. To anyone who hasn't experienced it, this will sound like a crazy idea—but for some of us, pencils are almost like magic wands, containing powers that can either help or hinder your process.
Fewer commuters are getting to work by car these days, especially in densely populated cities like San Francisco. But riding the bus or a bike isn't for everybody, and for those commuters that want the conveniences of a car without the hefty fuel fees, there's the canoe-inspired hybrid electric tricycle.
The new Porsche 918 Spyder has just been unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Not only it can do up to 94 miles per gallon, but this 887-horsepower überhybrid pulverized every production car speed record at the Nürburgring circuit. An incredibly beautiful beast.
Why are Ferrari, McLaren, and Porsche hybrid-crazy? As our Jalopnik pals explain, they're tech companies at heart.
In November of 2011, American commercial airlines consumed 48.3 million gallons of fuel—every day—and paid a total of $49.8 billion that month to do so. And with increasingly tight operating budgets, fuel efficiency has quickly become a primary concern for the airlines. Boeing thinks one possible solution is its new…
Toshiba might finally have something here. The Satellite U925t is its new 12.5-inch Windows 8 hybrid laptop/tablet, and it looks deceptively good.
The whitefish of Europe's Alpine lakes were once a single species, but after the Ice Age they split into separate species, adapting their look and lifestyle to their particular watery home. But this amazing biodiversity would have to be sacrificed.
Actually, Mesodinium chamaeleon is both. This single-celled organism definitely eats other creatures, which makes it an animal. But it also absorbs algae cells that can then give it extra energy through photosynthesis. So what on earth is this strange creature?
Cars aren't the only thing that runs on fossil fuels, so Honda has taken some of the technology they developed for its hybrid vehicles like the Civic and Insight, and applied it to their first snowblower to feature an electric drivetrain.
The concept of a video/still camera didn't excite me much. But maybe that's because I've been waiting for a true video/still Hybrid. The sasquatch of the A/V forrest.
The UK Academy of Medical Sciences is singlehandedly protecting us from a future of subservience to hyper-intelligent animal-human hybrids that will inevitably band together and usurp humanity from its seat of hegemony. Or something.
Every polar bear alive today shares a common maternal ancestor, and it isn't even a bear from the same species. Their mitochondrial DNA reveals a 100,000 year story of interbreeding and hybridization...and the story is far from over.
