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…
An aircraft with a parallel hybrid engine – the first ever to be able to recharge its batteries in flight – has been successfully tested in the UK, an important early step towards cleaner, more efficient air travel.
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…
Call them what you want — Coywolf, Coyote/Wolf Hybrid, Freakin' Terrifying — but the fact is, we've got a new predator and it lives in our forests, our suburbs and even our cities.
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.
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.All of that sounds like standard stuff compared to everything getting announced right now. And it is, mostly. But that's only because everything is so similar, and…
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.
You might ask why someone would want to turn a perfectly good Toyota Prius into a roller coaster that moves at a mere 15mph. I ask why not?
Sneaky spy shots of BMW's carbon-fiber hybrid car have surfaced from Scandinavia's icy plains, showing a lean profile and superb handling in tough conditions. That'll come in handy for Tom Cruise's Mission Impossible character, who is due to drive it in The Ghost Protocol.
GE is trying to explain the breakthrough of capturing lost energy and something called dynamic braking. I would care, but watching an egg, christmas ornament, water balloon, and watermelon fall in succession (and slow motion!) has me mesmerized. It's...beautiful. Watch it.
