Tiny house designer and Associate Professor in the Department of Architecture and in the Environmental Studies Program at the University of Oregon, Erin Moore has realized the construction of two dwellings amid a 300 year old solidified lava landscape in Hawaii.
Needles are usually seen as a necessary evil, but maybe they don't have to be. Plenty of painless alternatives are in the works, like microneedle patches, a laser-based device that pushes drugs through the skin as microjets of liquid, and a refined hypodermic design based on a mosquito's proboscis.
McLaren's new Senna is the company's all-new road legal track missile. As a homage to the late McLaren F1 driver, Ayrton Senna, the new McLaren represents major milestones for the British manufacturer in terms of performance and engineering.
Anheuser-Busch, brewer of Budweiser (and other, lesser known ales), is looking to reduce the environmental footprint of shipping its products all over the US.
Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies have promised a revolution in capital, but at what cost? The Bitcoin network alone is now burning a horrific 240 kilowatt-hours of electricity per transaction, using as much energy as the entire nation of Serbia, and heralding an environmental disaster.
Physicists from the University of Illinois have discovered a new form of matter called excitonium. This condensate, made up of excitons, was first theorized almost 50 years ago, and although evidence of this form of matter has been observed in that time it was difficult to be sure of what was happening.
The bacteria-powered batteries of electrical engineer Seokheun Choi have taken on a number of interesting forms, including matchbooks, folding paper and ninja stars.
Every four years, the world turns its attention to the Olympics to see competitors go "faster, higher, stronger." Additionally, average human height and life expectancy have increased significantly over the past couple of hundred years.

To create complex 3D-printed objects in seconds instead of hours or days, a team of scientists and engineers led by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) have developed a hologram-like process that uses lasers to form complete objects in seconds inside a tank of liquid resin.
The hunt for exoplanets enters a new phase as European Southern observatory's (ESO) Echelle SPectrograph for Rocky Exoplanet and Stable Spectroscopic Observations (ESPRESSO) achieves first light at the agency's Very Large Telescope (VLT) in Chile.
German tuning-house, Manhart, has been well-known for boosting the performance of BMW's M-division vehicles, through bolt-on parts and engine swaps.
There was a lot more said during the Apollo 11 missions besides "The Eagle has landed and "That's one step for man." To help preserve and make accessible the thousands of hours of recorded mission audio, a team of researchers at the University of Texas at Dallas used speech recognition technology to unscramble and analyze the conversations between astronauts, mission control, and technicians in between across a quarter of a million miles of space...
