Scientists Create Calcium ‘Sun Shield’ To Protect The Great Barrier Reef

The Great Barrier Reef is one of the marvels of nature, but it seems that unless we do something about it, we might one day be saying that the Great Barrier Reef was one of the marvels of nature. However thankfully scientists in Australia might have come up with a way to protect what’s left of it.


Donate For Harvey Storm Relief Via iTunes

Texas was hit by Hurricane Harvey yesterday and even though it has since been downgraded to a tropical storm, there may be up to 40 inches of rain in the area which is going to disrupt the lives of countless people in the state. There have already been reports of devastating flooding so it’s going to get a lot worse before it gets better. To help with the ongoing relief […]


Snail Brains Could Help Scientists Create Smarter Robots

You would think that if you were to develop an AI system or a brain of a robot that it would be highly complex. After all with all the different things we can think of and when it comes to problem solving, it would certainly involve complex algorithms and programming, right? However it seems that a recent discovery has suggested that maybe less is more.


Brewery Makes The Ocean Safe By Creating Edible Six-Pack Rings

If you’ve ever bought a six-pack beer, you know that sometimes they are sold either in a cardboard box or with a six-pack ring that holds the beer together. The latter method has been criticized for harming the environment and ocean life as sometimes fishes and turtles get caught in them and die as a result of it.

Scientists Successfully “See” What Dolphins See

As human beings we are used to seeing things as humans do. Apples are red, oranges are round, the sky is blue (or grey depending on where you are), and etc. However it is obvious that animals don’t see things the same way humans do, like how dogs are said to have a more limited color spectrum than humans, and how bats are more or less blind and use sound […]


Australia To Deploy Drones To Keep A Lookout For Sharks

According to recent reports, it has been suggested that there has been an increase in the number of shark attacks in Australia. In 2015 alone, there have been reports of as many as 33 shark attacks, which is more than the previous years combined, indicating that perhaps something needs to be done to better protect their coasts and beaches. It seems that one of the methods that the New South […]


This Website Will Deliver Puppies To Your Workplace

Depending on where you work, sometimes offices can be a bit dull but if you’d like to help liven up the place a little, a website and organization by the name of Bravepup might be of interest to you. It seems that not only can you get all food, clothing, electronics, and books delivered, but thanks to Bravepup, you can now get puppies delivered to the workplace. The idea behind […]


Watch This Swarm Of Bees Attack This Drone

Drones, love ‘em or hate ‘em. There are plenty of hobbyists out there as well as videographers, photographers, and filmmakers who love the technology as it does allow them to get some pretty amazing and stunning footage, footage that they might not have been able to capture unless they had more expensive equipment. However while some of us love our drones, nature not so much. A couple of months ago […]


Kansas Farmer Successfully Catches A Fish Using His Drone

We’ve seen drones used for all sorts of things, like photography, videography, and rescue efforts. However one Kansas farmer by the name of Derek Klingenberg decided to use his drone for fishing. This is actually a pretty good idea as it allows the pilot to stand along the shore, while the drone goes out into deeper waters. So did he catch any fish? Turns out that Klingenberg did and was […]


Eagle Versus Drone In Mid-Air Battle, Nature Wins

A couple of days ago we were treated to a footage of a fisherman versus a drone, where the fisherman successfully and skillfully managed to hook a drone in mid-air. Now who was wrong in this case is up for debate – was the drone pilot wrong for potentially disturbing these fisherman and invading their privacy, or was the fisherman wrong for vandalizing someone else’s property? We suppose that’s a […]


3D Printed Rhino Horns Are Created To Help Curb Poaching

Poaching is a serious problem especially when the animal being hunted is on the verge of extinction. Now we’ve seen different ways technology has been used to curb poaching, but here’s a new and potentially good idea. A biotech firm in San Francisco has recently revealed that they have successfully printed 3D rhino horns. This is more than just 3D printing the shape of the horn, but rather a semi-recreation […]


Tiny Gecko-Like Robot Can Lift Over 100 Times Its Own Weight

It is said that the ant is capable of lifting many times its body weight, which has been estimated to be 20-100 times depending on the particular species, so imagine if we could roboticize their ability, how cool would that be? Well that’s what researchers at Stanford have done when they created a gecko-like robot that is capable of lifting more than 100 times its weight. According to the report […]


Butterfly Wings Could Be The Key To Developing Glare-Free Displays

More often than not, there has been a lot of technological advances and creations that have been inspired by nature, and it looks like if you’re looking forward to having truly glare-free displays in the future, it seems as though butterfly wings could be the key to unlocking that possibility. This is according to German researchers at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) who discovered that due to the design […]


Get zen with the iPad controlled Biome Smart Terrarium

In a recent exhibition in London called “Slow Tech”, designer Samuel Wilkinson showed off his Biome Smart Terrarium, which isn’t all that technical until it was revealed that it was actually controlled by an iPad (could be replaced with a smartphone). This is just the start of a future where our homes and lives can be fully controlled (and even automated) by our smartphones and tablets.
