Astronauts fired this small, rectangular hunk from the International Space Station today. The payload will separate into two autonomous satellites as part of a research program to take us one tiny step closer towards making asteroid mining a reality.
Go go Dragon! SpaceX just posted video of its Dragon 2 spacecraft testing its ability to hover. Once certified, this spacecraft will carry astronauts to the space station as part of NASA’s commercial crew program. Crewed test flights are tentatively planned to start in 2017.
When Microsoft said you’d be able to make Minecraft worlds appear in your living room with its new HoloLens headset, perhaps you squealed in glee. Or perhaps you wrote it off as smoke and mirrors—not reality. Guess what? I just played it. Everything you saw on stage is real.
A flying saucer plummeted through the skies over Hawaii today in the second test of NASA’s new Mars landing system. If this had been a real flight to Mars, we’d have just killed a rover by slamming it into the planet below.
The fantastically-named Supersonic Naval Ordnance Research Track, or SNORT, is a naval facility in the heart of the Californian desert. It’s also where NASA engineers let their evil side run free by wreacking havoc on innocent objects, using a rocket sled to destroy prototype parachutes destined for Mars
The best-laid plans have astronauts returning to Earth on dry land when they hitch a ride on Boeing's CST-100 in the future, but NASA's emergency plans dunked the spacecraft in splashdown tests to ensure waterlogged astronauts would still find their way home.
Come in and enjoy every single angle of the Alpine Vision, a stunning car made to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the legendary French sport roadster. I love each and every one of its three versions.
Remember when Sony decided to sell off its entire PC business in one fell swoop? It looks like that wasn't the end of the company's iconic VAIO designs. Today at Adobe's MAX design conference, the new VAIO Corporation showed off a brand new tablet computer aimed directly at pros. It's a beefy machine with a 12.3-inch…
Folding technology is long-promised but slow to arrive. This kind of tri-fold hardware, though, might just be the how the sci-fi dream pans out over the next few years.
At first glance it doesn't look like much but this thing is a reference design of the first 13-inch MacBook. Remember those from 2006?
If the music‘s anything to go by, pretty much everyone was on something in the ’60s — and that includes the engineers. BAE Systems has recently dug up some totally batshit-crazy ideas that were seriously being kicked around by its ‘crack’ team of engineers, and they’re both totally ridiculous and dangerously awesome.
Last week, it came to light that Samsung was planning to attack Apple based on the fact that its iPhone design copied Sony products—and the evidence was convincing. But now the Verge has uncovered Apple's response, which suggests there were convincing iPhone prototypes kicking around well before the Sony-esque model…
Since its launch in 2010 the iPad has only ever featured a single dock connector, despite being used frequently in landscape orientation. There were, just before launch, rumors that the device might have two connectors—and now a prototype which has just sold on eBay further suggests that such plans were considered.
It might look like a monstrous set of headphones, but the WHILL is actually an electric drivetrain designed to clamp onto manually powered wheelchairs, temporarily giving them a powered boost when longer distances have to be traveled.
In a bizarre reversal of earlier statements, the SFPD has informed the SFWeekly that officers did accompany Apple's security team to Sergio Calderon's house.
Rather than be used for 3D photos and video, Samsung's proposing that this dual-lens camera patent could actually help compact cameras capture a shallower depth of field, where focused objects stand out more, and backgrounds are blurred.
As is the trait of Glastonbury Festival-sponsor Orange, the carrier has shown off its annual eco-friendly festival prototype, and would you guess that it'll match those phone-charging wellington boots from last year? Anna Wintour will be ever so pleased.
You know, that ridiculous 85-inch Sharp Super Hi-Vision TV with 33,177,600 pixels needs some sort of ridiculous content to fill itself out. Thankfully, Sharp made this ridiculous 33-megapixel Super Hi-Vision camera to be the perfect companion to the TV.
