Engineers at Texas A & M University conducted a series of tests of a new bridge support design created using experimental technology. Her working title is "hybrid sliding-swinging bridge," and the idea for her was drawn from the structure of human limbs. The two bones in the joint are
# ing0 #. The size of a ship called Benchy is about 30 microns, which is only 2/3 of the thickness of a human hair or six times the size of a bacterial cell. The creators of the ship were employees of Leiden University (Netherlands), and the shipyard was a 3D microprinter. With such microscopic
The influential French architect Jean Nouvelle has implemented several impressive projects in the Middle East, but his latest idea can easily surpass them. As part of the Sharaan project, Jean intends to build a resort and hotel inside sandy cliffs in the middle of the Arabian desert. The resort
MIT Media Lab graduate student Jack Foreman figured out how to usefully use the FDM printer defect, in which specific gaps are formed in the object during printing. Formally, they are considered a lack of technology, a result of insufficient extrusion, and the product is defective. However,
In the United States, there is a resurgence of interest in the technology of molten salt nuclear reactors. One of the most promising players in this market is startup Elysium Technologies, which develops designs for widely scalable reactors with a capacity of 10 MW to 1200 MW. It is important to
The insect Nosoderma diabolicum, aka the diabolical armadillo beetle, is considered the owner of the most durable shell among arthropods. An insect study showed that this is not so much passive protection as an analogue of an exoskeleton with integrated armor. Detailed research helped scientists
The Massachusetts Institute of Technology has developed an algorithm that allows you to create an AI translator with a specialization in one of the lost languages. These are those dialects and dialects that no one has spoken for a long time, from which only some entries remain, but almost no

A team of enthusiasts from the Eindhoven University of Technology in the Netherlands completed the ambitious Luca project. This is the name of a small yellow car, which almost entirely consists of skillfully recycled garbage. It is not created for practical operation, but as a clear, valid
Chemists from the American University in Washington (USA) created a carbon-based catalyst, which for the first time in history turned out to be more effective than platinum. And helped them in this natural energy concentrator - spinach. The new catalyst will find use in fuel cells of the future,
Wood glass is not fantastic, but a product of modern technologies. Our usual quartz sand glass has many drawbacks, the main ones being that it passes heat from the room outside in winter and does not prevent its penetration into the summer. As a result - impressive bills for heating and
American scientists have taken the initiative to introduce monitoring of the movement of whales near the coast of California in order to minimize collisions of animals with ships. In the Santa Barbara Strait, dozens of such incidents are recorded annually and often fatal. And in order not to
In Costa Rica, a successful experiment was conducted to identify wildlife smuggling routes, assisted by high technology. Employees of the Paso Pacifico environmental agency used the development of scientists from the University of Kent - a fake turtle egg. A GPS module was installed inside it,
Researchers at the University of Iowa (USA) gave hope to all people with type 2 diabetes. They developed a device that, without contact with the body, can lower a patient's blood sugar, normalizing the patient's condition. No injections, preparations and implant installations are required - the
Startup Bolt Threads developed Mylo material based on mycelium (filamentous roots of mushrooms), which interested large clothing manufacturers Adidas (Germany) and Lululemon (Canada). Their management has already announced investments in Bolt Threads in order to further use unique material for
Aston Martin announced its readiness to begin construction of an ultramodern mansion for luxury and comfort connoisseurs. Such a house from designers of elite cars will cost at least $7.7 million, and will be called "Sylvan Rock." The future masterpiece of architecture, as it is famous in the
Command Sight began developing a unique version of augmented reality - for dogs. This is an order from the American military research structure Army Research Laboratory. The technology is not intended for all dogs, but only for those who are in the service and are forced to carry out missions in
The Pentagon Transport Command and SpaceX are joining forces to explore the possibility of using missiles for high-speed cargo delivery around the world. At first glance, the idea is very tempting and technically quite feasible, but not everything is so simple. So, a rocket launched from
# ing0 #. Thanks to the unique synthetic stone and 3D building printers, Mighty Buildings learned to print full-fledged houses with an area of 33 sq.m. in just 24 hours. And this is not just a conceptual experiment - the startup is already actively building 3D houses in California and is
Atlas Obscura found in the American archives a curious patent dated 1930. Its author, Helen Shelby, was convinced of the effectiveness of the symbiosis of the latest technologies and the ancient beliefs of people in the supernatural. She offered to build a car to interrogate criminals, which
The Estonian company Skeleton Technologies announced the signing of an agreement of intent with an unnamed automaker, in the framework of which it intends to supply batteries of a new type worth at least a billion euros. The novelty was called simple - SuperBattery. It was developed together with
