Want to know how much sugar is in your apple? This tiny spectrometer will tell you that, and much much more.
The SCiO is the world's first spectrometer that fits in a pocket, and it can measure the molecular fingerprint of just about anything you see.

A new investigation has revealed human trafficking camps hidden in the Thai jungle, and a chain of mass graves snaking through southeast Asia, all in support of the country's seafood industry. The Thai government claims they have ended the problem, but have the slave traders simply moved off-shore?

Love the look of repurposed cargo container buildings. The first I

Because doggies need to be safe too.
According to AAA, only 16 percent of dog owners restrain their pups when on the road, and that's a risk for canines and humans—but Skoda's seat belt aims to change that.
