The surface of Venus is a notorious hell-hole. If an atmospheric pressure roughly 90 times greater than Earth isn’t enough for you, try the surface temperature, which can grow to almost five times the boiling point of water. Got a nice pressure suit to keep you cool? Make sure it’s resistant to the effects of corrosive substances dissolved into the…Continue

There are a bunch of drones on the market today that have video cameras inside them. The thing most of those drones have in common is a high purchase price. A new drone is on Indiegogo right now and it is surprisingly cheap for a video drone – and it’s made out of a very cool material. It’s called the Carbon Flyer, so of course it’s made from carbon…Continue

Virtual reality has reached the point where it can easily fool our vision and sense of depth and balance. But if it’s to be truly believable our sense of touch needs to be indulged as well. That’s the goal of the English company Ultrahaptics. The company is working on a device that allows users to “feel” something that’s not actually there.…
