Boeing’s Patent Will Charge Drones In Mid-Air

Kind of like smartphones, drones at the moment are still relatively new which also means that battery life on these devices aren’t particularly great either. We’re sure that over time, drone makers will figure out a way to create and embed better and longer-lasting batteries, but until then, we guess you’ll just have to keep an eye out on those battery levels. That being said, wouldn’t it be awesome if […]

Hackers Could Commandeer Planes Using Onboard Passenger WiFi

As if it wasn’t bad enough that inflight WiFi services tend to be extremely expensive and are usually pretty slow, but now it looks like they could be potentially hacked and used to commandeer a plane in mid-flight. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) had initially warned Boeing of the potential security risk seven years ago, and it looks like even today, this could be a problem affecting Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner […]


NASA & Boeing Looking To Test More Eco-Friendly Planes

While planes are probably the most efficient way of traveling great distances, they’re not exactly the most eco-friendly modes of transportation either. However both Boeing and NASA are hoping to change that with the testing of the Boeing ecoDemonstrator (a 757) where the plane is expected to go on a series of flights. What makes these flights so significant is that the plane will be testing out NASA’s experimental fuel-saving […]

We’re sure most of you guys have seen sci-fi movies where vehicles or even robots can deploy force fields, ultimately protecting them from damage from the likes of missiles, guns, lasers, and so on.

Reasons Behind Boeing 787 Dreamliner Battery Problems Detailed

BAE Systems Wants To Bring First Class Creature Comforts To Economy

One of the perks of flying first class is that unlike economy class, you won’t be squashed next to other passengers. Your chairs are usually spacious enough, and you can lean all the way back without worrying that you might hit someone in the knee. There are also more creature comforts compared to economy class, but it seems like that could soon be changing. BAE Systems, a company that provides […]


Boeing 727 Transformed Into A Home

Have wings, will travel. However, what happens when that pair of wings have been grounded due to obsolescence?

Boeing Black Smartphone Unveiled, Not For The Average Consumer

Boeing is a company that many associate with aeroplanes, and rightfully so given that that is the company’s core competency. However Boeing has been making headlines as of late for something completely unrelated – smartphones.

Boeing’s Android-Powered Smartphone Arrives At The FCC

They say that good things come to those who wait. I would suppose that should you happen to be an industry watcher where smartphones are concerned, you might have come across news that Boeing, the aviation giant, intends to make the jump into the world of smartphones. This is almost as “silly” as supercar manufacturer Koenigsegg teaming up with Razer to roll out a limited edition Razer Blade gaming laptop, […]
