Here is an extremely interesting documentary in which Michio Kaku, a world-renowned physicist, explains why time is passing more and more quickly for us as we grow older and how science is one the verge of discovering “the elixir of life”. Enjoy the show!
By Rob Dunn Contributing Writer, [GAS] Phoenix Motorcars, based in Ontario, California, has created a line of electric vehicles squarely aimed at utility services that maintain a automotive fleet for their employees in the field. When will the vehicles be ready? In a few short months. The SUT (Sport Utility Truck) model will be released […]
Here’s a short video segment from ABC news presenting the i-Limb: the world’s first bionic hand. What is really amazing about these new kinds of prosthesis is that they are entirely controlled by nerve impulses, just like real hands are. I wouldn’t be surprised if one day, these “bionic hands” become superior to regular ones. […]
Composed of 99% of air, Aerogel, aka “Blue Smoke”, is an absolutely amazing material that was originally developed by Steven Kistler back in 1931. Aerogel is a low-density solid-state material derived from gel in which the liquid component of the gel has been replaced with gas. The result is an extremely low density solid with […]
Interesting way to annoy the heck out of your family & fellow pub patrons… using a flashlight, and yes…a floppy disk. :)
By Rob Dunn Contributing Writer, [GAS] Troy Hurtubise, eccentric inventor, has developed the ‘Trojan’ suit. Aside from the unfortunate name, the suit is actually a lightweight, state-of-the-art, exoskeleton body armor which could be utilized by military personnel deployed in dangerous environments. Described by Hurtubise himself as the “first ballistic, full exoskeleton body suit of armor”, […]
Imagine a gasoline-free morning commute. Wouldn’t that be great? It would certainly benefit your wallet, and support the environment. Last year, the engineers at Chevrolet introduced the Volt, a new concept car. The Volt is a new kind of electric vehicle that can be configured to run on regular gas, electricity, bio-diesel and E85 (ethanol). […]
Watch this crazy scientist as he demonstrates how the principle of Bernoulli works. Bernoulli’s Principle states that in an ideal fluid (low speed air is a good approximation), with no work being performed on the fluid, an increase in velocity occurs simultaneously with decrease in pressure or a change in the fluid’s gravitational potential energy.
