The machine successfully hurdles obstacles of varying heights - up to 16 inches (40cm) - corrects its stance before running and jumping another.

Designing one robot that can walk and fly tends to be both complicated and inefficient, which is why heterogeneous robot teams are often more appealing.
Instead of trying to cram every capability into one robot, you just use several different robots with different specializations and find some way of getting them to work together.

An 'origami' drone that can fold up its arms to save space - making it small enough to fit in a jacket pocket.
To launch it, the owner can simply hold it out - the quadcopter then comes to life, unfurling its arms before taking off.

Magic gravity generators and spaceship.
Feast your eyes on some truly glorious spaceship porn. Prepare yourself for Syfy’s latest foray into the big black with some exclusive concept art from Dark Matter, the new space series from the minds behind the Stargate franchise. Behold!

The 16 foot long jet car is based on a 'pulse jet' engine developed by the Germans during World War II to power a precursor to modern cruise missiles.

These quadcopters are topping out at more than 50 kilometers per hour while flying in a circle with a radius of just 1.7 meters. The tether is exerting over 13 gs of centripetal force to keep them from flying off into oblivion.
Despite the speed, there seems to be no problem getting four quadcopters to do a bunch of coordinated acrobatics.

Recent advances in artificial intelligence could soon lead them out of the factory floor and into the home.
Researchers develop a system that adapts to damage in less than a minute, paving the way for robots in the home.

These videos capture the test detonations of various nuclear weapons, letting us witness the immediate effects safely behind our computer screens.
It’s impossible to forget just how immense the destructive power of a nuclear weapon is, but there is nothing quite like watching an explosion to hit that point home. These videos capture the test detonations of various nuclear weapons, letting us witness the immediate effects safely behind our computer screens.

Dartmouth researchers have created the first form of real-time communication that allows screens, displaying images such as this landscape, and cameras to talk to each other without the user knowing it.

In 1878, photographer Eadweard Muybridge solved an enduring mystery: Do galloping horses ever lift all four of their hooves off the ground at the same time? Animator Nina Paley pays tribute to Muybridge with a quilt whose panels are based on his galloping horse photos.
