In depressing news, about 180,000 cubic meters of wood will be taken from the last of Europe’s primeval forests. The environmental minister in Poland declared that the Bialowieza Puszcza will be logged over the next decade.
This Saturday, a small drone carrying the abortion-inducing pills mifepristone and misoprostol will fly from Germany to a border town in Poland. And yes, “Abortion Drone” sounds like the name of an anarchist punk band, but this is the most badass drone aid mission yet.
A cyberattack on Polish airline LOT left ten flights canceled this Sunday, stranding around 1,400 people at Warsaw’s Chopin airport. The attack hit the airline’s ground computer system, which is used to make flight plans.
Never get in a street fight in Poland because you never know what kind of garage made weapons they'll bring out against. Like this makeshift cannon that can bring the boom like no other. The noise alone is intimidating. Eastern Europe seems like such a fun place for crazy people to do crazy stuff in the middle of the…
After being invaded by Germany in the west and later by Soviet Russia in the east, the Polish government fled Warsaw but continued to fight from abroad. After Germany attacked Russia, the Russians decided to release their Polish prisoners of war, who then began re-forming into an army.
If opulent isn’t an adjective you’d immediately associate with the mining profession, then you’ve clearly never had a peek inside Poland’s Wieliczka Salt Mine. The subterranean marvel (and UNESCO World Heritage Site) has been operational since the first shafts were dug way back in the 13th century, but the decor has…
Implantable medical devices have come a long way since doctors installed world's first pacemaker in Arne Larsson's chest in 1958 but they've always been hamstrung by a reliance external power sources. However, a new zinc-air battery chemistry developed by Institute of Physical Chemistry in Poland could eventually…
Remember the project for the thinnest house in the world, designed by Polish architect Jakub Szczesny? Well, it's finished. And it looks quite cool and livable inside.
The Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement, or ACTA to its friends, is coming under fire in the EU from those who fear it will lead to online censorship. But it's recieved particular attention from the public of Poland, and that's been reflected by some of the nation's politicians.
It's Polish Independence Day, and like in any other country, the youngins love celebrating liberty by destroying things. German (?) and Polish "youths" butted heads with (and threw things at) riot cops in Warsaw. Check out the view from above.
When's the last time you gawked a room built from wood and obsolete computer parts that was set inside a Polish castle? Yesterday? BS. This is the first time you've seen such a thing so feast those peepers on this.
What amazes me about Safe House—a Polish home designed by Kwl Promes Architects—is that it manages to be a beautiful family residence while offering a security level probably comparable to the White House's situation room. It borders paranoia.
Every summer solstice, all those European pagans celebrate their Midsummer Festivals. They are often beautiful celebrations.
...Even if it is just a prototype. In fact, it's a student's project from a Krakow fine arts university, which just goes to show that some of the best designs don't necessarily come from the R&D labs of tech companies.
"Hang on a minute," you cry, "Auschwitz has its own website?!" Well, naturally—it may have once been a concentration camp, but now millions visit it every year, and no doubt visit the Auschwitz.pl website for information.
The world's largest Jesus statue now towers over Swiebodzin, Poland, measuring 170 feet tall from his feet to the tip of his crown. Watch his head get attached by a 700-ton crane; it's very spiritual and a little bit goofy.
Gizmodo Poland launched today. The guy in charge is Rafal Tomanski, who was a finalist on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire Poland, and walked away with the 500k prize after not wanting to risk it all on a single question. He speaks 8 languages and has degrees in Japanese cinema and international relations and has been a…
Holy crap. Is that a MacBook in this Microsoft website photo? Haha...seriously though, that is the least of their problems when it comes to the Polish version.
