You Heard Of Autonomous Cars, Now Meet The Autonomous Motorcycle

Autonomous cars are not new, but an autonomous motorcycle? Well, that’s new and kind of bizarre too. Bizarre because, a motorcycle making the journey without a person makes it look like scene from Scooby-Doo. But rest assure, BMW self-riding motorcycle is anything but supernatural. So, yeah.

Norsepower Turned Giant Vessels Into Sail Boats With High-Tech “Sails”

Those cylinders sticking out of the vessel you see here are sails. However, as you can see, it is not the typical sails you are familiar with. Technically, it works like a sail and therefore, you can still call it a sail, but instead of providing an area of resistance for winds to push the craft along, it harness the wind power to leverage on the phenomena called Magnus Effect. Though Magnus Effect is a phenomenal, unlike Bernoulli’s Principle, the principle behind is largely the same. Continue reading Norsepower Turned Giant Vessels Into Sail Boats With High-Tech “Sails”

Autonomous Pods With “Eyes” Is Like Pixar’s Cars In Real Life

Autonomous vehicles are going to be here sooner or later, and this inevitable arrival will lead to mistrust, simply because there is no one behind the wheel of these self-driving cars (remember how I, Robot plays out?

To quell this mistrust in pedestrians, Jaguar Land Rover has came up with a novel solution: putting cartoonish (and strangely, somewhat sad) eyes on autonomous cars – starting with the company’s intelligent pods. Continue reading Autonomous Pods With “Eyes” Is Like Pixar’s Cars In Real Life

Framing Hammer With Collated Nails Will End Digits Smashing Forever

This could be the greatest thing to happen since the invention of hammer. What you see here is an entirely new kind of hammer that will end the days where you keep smashing your own digits. It is a framing hammer that dispenses collated nails. It is kind of like a cross between a regular hammer and a nail gun, but the obvious boon is, it won’t kill or injure (and also, it uses standard collated nails). In fact, as mentioned earlier, it will totally save your fingers too. Continue reading Framing Hammer With Collated Nails Will End Digits Smashing Forever

Bompas & Parr Created Non-melting Ice Lollies Inspired By A WWII Invention
