Video: Flying Car (or Driving Autogyro) Completes First Flight Tests
By Dan NosowitzPosted 04.02.2012 at 5:45 pm16 Comments

Pal-V Flying Car Pal-V
So this video was uploaded on April 1st (danger! danger!) but we've known of the Pal-V for a few years and we'll assume for the moment that the Dutch company was not aware of the risk in uploading a video of a flying car on April Fool's Day. The Pal-V, which stands for Personal Air and Land Vehicle, is actually more of a driving autogyro than a flying car, but it can drive like a car, and it can also fly, so we are definitively on board.
An autogyro is an old idea--it uses an unpowered rotor on the top of the vehicle, but it's not like a helicopter, which generates lift by blasting air downwards with it. Instead, power is provided by a smaller propellor at the rear, and the top rotor is used for pitch and yaw, more like a glider. (That also means if your power goes out, you can glide slowly to the ground.) The Pal-V, a small, one-person autogyro that also drives sort of like a three-wheeled motorcycle, leaning into turns, has been around for a few years, but it just completed and post the video of its first flight. The video:

Video: Google's Straight-Out-of-Sci-Fi Augmented Reality Glasses
By Dan Nosowitz Posted 04.04.2012 at 1:58 pm 19 Comments

Google announced just a month or two ago that they were in the advanced stages of work on a pair of augmented reality glasses--a concept we've been waiting for since some sci-fi writer thought of it in decades ago. The company was short on details or, importantly for our fantasies, imagery, until today, when it posted a concept video showing how these glasses might be used. And it's pretty amazing. Video after the jump.

TECHNOLOGYPhoto Artists Use Filter "Normally Used by NASA" to Remove People From Crowded Urban Places
By Dan Nosowitz Posted 04.05.2012 at 5:19 pm 0 Comments

"Silent World," a photography project by Parisian artists Lucie & Simon, takes the most crowded parts of New York City, Paris, and Beijing, and alters them in a basic (but technically incredible difficult) way. We recognize Times Square, Columbus Circle, and more landmarks from our own hometown, but only barely--those usually people-clogged landmarks are now empty, totally bereft of the swarms of tourists and locals alike that give those areas their personality. Apparently the artist duo used a neutral filter "normally used by NASA for analyzing stars." The filter allows the photographers to take extra-long exposures, and then cut out any moving objects like people or cars. Check out video of the project below.

SCIENCEMIT Predicts That World Economy Will Collapse By 2030
By Rebecca Boyle Posted 04.05.2012 at 4:30 pm 5 Comments
Forty years after its initial publication, a study called The Limits to Growth is looking depressingly prescient. Commissioned by an international think tank called the Club of Rome, the 1972 report found that if civilization continued on its path toward increasing consumption, the global economy would collapse by 2030. Population losses would ensue, and things would generally fall apart.

SCIENCEHow It Works: The First Disposable, USB-Powered Genome Sequencer
Nanopore technology that lets your computer read your chromosomes
By Rebecca Boyle Posted 04.05.2012 at 3:09 pm 3 Comments

The first human genome sequence took 13 years and cost $3 billion — now, less than a decade later, a new company promises to sequence a full genome in 15 minutes for a song. If this exponential increase in efficiency and drop in price sounds like something out of the computing industry, that’s because it is. Multicore processors and customizable clusters are coming to gene sequencing, threatening to disrupt one of the most important industries in modern medicine.

TECHNOLOGYAn App That Gives Apes the Ability to Control Robots (This Is a Real Thing)
By Dan Nosowitz Posted 04.05.2012 at 2:00 pm 0 Comments
Did you know that bonobos have a "fascination with computers"? No? Neither did we. But a new Kickstarter project from the Bonobo Hope Great Ape Trust Sanctuary in Des Moines, Iowa needs funding to make every bonobo's technological dreams a reality--from operating vending machines to, improbably, controlling their own robots.

TECHNOLOGYHow It Works: An Underground Robot Library
The research library of the future
By Kalee Thompson Posted 04.05.2012 at 1:00 pm 1 Comment

Engineers from Dematic, a firm that builds automated parts and storage-retrieval systems for Boeing, Ford and IBM, designed a five-story underground storage area managed by five robotic cranes. Dematic has built 17 automated library systems worldwide, but the University of Chicago’s is the most complex. The company has three more libraries under construction. See how it works here.

TECHNOLOGYDARPA Wants Humanoid Robots That Can Drive Tractors, Open Doors and Save the Day
By Rebecca Boyle Posted 04.05.2012 at 12:12 pm 5 Comments

DARPA is poised to launch a new Grand Challenge for a humanoid robot, according to robotics insiders — and the result could be a souped-up metal soldier running alongside BigDog, driving an ATV, unlocking doors and clearing a path to safety for its human counterparts. There’s no official agency announcement yet, but robotics companies heard all about it at a recent industry day.

TECHNOLOGYHow It Works: A Recycled-Air Scuba System
Rebreathing air, underwater
By Brooke Borel Posted 04.05.2012 at 11:41 am 0 Comments

Conventional scuba systems have some major limitations. Divers using them must carefully monitor the depth and time they stay underwater and endure a series of lengthy decompression steps during resurfacing. Rebreathers recycle air, allowing divers to go deeper and remain underwater for longer, with shorter decompression on ascent. The Navy has used the devices for decades, but they were very expensive, and difficult to maintain and operate. In 2008, VR Technology introduced the Sentinel, a $12,000 rebreather with automated safety systems and full manual backup. See how this scuba system works here.

SCIENCEQ&A: The Surprising Phenomenon of Exercise-Induced Orgasms
A first-person coregasm testimonial
By Jennifer Abbasi Posted 04.05.2012 at 10:07 am 4 Comments
According to a new study by sex researchers at the Indiana University, women having orgasms during exercise is a real phenomenon. As far as the researchers know, this is the first study that deals directly with exercise-induced orgasms (EIO), known colloquially as "coregasms" because they tend to occur during core-strengthening workouts, like sit-ups and crunches.

GADGETSMinecraft Maker Promises a New Game Rooted in 'Hard Science Fiction'
By Clay Dillow Posted 04.04.2012 at 5:14 pm 9 Comments
The maker of Minecraft has a new project in the works, and the first details appear pretty tantalizing: space-themed, set 281 billion years in the future, and rooted in “hard science fiction.” Markus “Notch” Persson and his development company Mojang plan to allow the game to grow much the way Minecraft did, letting users have a heavy hand in its maturation.
