Atari is making a new video game console
The name "Atari" might not make a young gamers' eyes light up like Nintendo, Xbox or PlayStation, but it still carries a cultural cachet with old timers. Now the company has announced that it's getting back into the hardware game for the first time in over 20 years, with a new console called the Ataribox.

AirQuadOne could be your flying quadbike
At the upcoming Paris Air Show, European consortium Neva Aerospace will be presenting a new concept for a personal VTOL (vertical take-off and landing) aircraft. Known as AirQuadOne, plans call for the fully-electric vehicle to be able to reach a maximum altitude of 3,000 ft (914 m) and travel at top air speed of 80 km/h (50 mph), with one charge of its battery pack being good for 20 to 30 minutes of flight time.

James Webb Space Telescope's first science targets announced
NASA officials have announced some of the first targets to be observed by the much-anticipated James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) following its launch atop an Ariane 5 rocket, which is slated for lift-off in October 2018. The initial observations cover the gamut of the JWST's scientific targets, from studies aimed at unraveling the secrets of galaxy formation, to gaining a better understanding of our home solar system via an in-depth study of select planets, moons, and asteroids.

Chinese satellite shatters quantum teleportation distance record
Chinese scientists have smashed the quantum entanglement distance record. Transmitting information through entangled photons had previously only been possible up to about 100 km (62 mi), but using the Micius satellite launched in August, information has effectively been teleported as far as 1,200 km (746 mi).

One Big Question: How might we find the building blocks of extraterrestrial life in the lab?
When scientists look for extraterrestrial life, they typically turn their focus upwards, to planets like Mars, moons like Enceladus and exoplanets far beyond our own solar system. But for Laura Rowe, an assistant professor of chemistry at Valparaiso University in Indiana, the search begins in the lab.

Sustainable manta ray-shaped ferry terminal floated for Seoul
Vincent Callebaut Architectures, the firm behind Taipei's twisting tree-covered tower, has unveiled a novel new ferry terminal for Seoul, South Korea. If built, it would resemble a massive manta ray and be able to float in place to deal with seasonal flooding. It would also include some very ambitious sustainable technology, allowing it to produce all the energy it needs.
