Check out the 10 fastest aircraft of all time

00 Jet airliners like an Airbus A320 or a Boeing 777, can fly at speeds that reach over 900 km/h. And that is really REALLY fast, so much that these aircraft cross countries and even continents in just a few hours. But there are certain aircraft that can fly at a much faster speeds. However, these flights are reserved only to the military and special government operations, and they can fly at over 7,000 km/h! Extremely high speeds,…

DARPA’s new helicopter model can land on almost any surface

00 DARPA has done it again. DARPA, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, are famously known for their research on humanoid robots or perhaps real-life Terminators. In fact, earlier this year, they organized their famous annual robot competition, the DARPA Robotics Challenge. This time it is not about humanoid robots but rather, it is a helicopter that utilizes an interesting piece of technology referred to as the adaptive robotic landing gear. Helicopters are convenient, which…

USB Flash Drive Etiquette – Do I really have to ‘safely’ remove hardware?

USB Flash Drive Etiquette – Do I really have to ‘safely’ remove hardware?

00 Consider the lowly USB flash drive, aka thumb, zip, jump, pocket, stick, or various, shall we say, more unsavory monikers we attach when they stop working. In just sixteen years, they’ve become a far cry from their humble origins. It took another five years for the first major advancement in the technology, the 2.0 standard, to become widely available. With a possible throughput rate of several hundred megabyte per second, 2.0 was a notable…

New HD camera waterproof drone is aiming to revolutionize underwater photography

00 Up until now, little progress has been made in terms of underwater photography. If it is possible to obtain good quality images underwater, it is also important to remember that this type of technology is still not accessible to many people due to its high cost. But with a new drone that is absolutely blowing up on Kickstarter – reaching more than 10 times it’s $50,000 goal – it seems that this is about to change….

GoPro lost in space is found 2 years later with breathtaking space footage!

00 Using a high-altitude weather balloon, a group of students at Stanford University, sent a GoPro into space to gather data for an aerospace engineering dissertation. The launch took place about 32.2 km from the Grand Canyon, back in June 2013 and the GoPro reached 30 km in altitude during its 1h38m flight. Due to a technical problem, the group lost control of the machine despite being equipped with a GPS, and it landed 80 kilometers from where it was supposed…

Aurora, the American secret hypersonic spyplane

+10 It’s been 25 years since the rumors started and the alleged hypersonic spyplane is still a huge topic for researchers and enthusiasts. It all started in August 1989 when Chris Gibson from Royal Observer Corps (British civil defense organisation) was working at a gas platform in the North Sea and saw something really strange: a triangle-shaped delta aircraft apparently refueling from a Boeing KC-135 Stratotanker. Next to them were two F-111 fighter-bombers that were slightly smaller than the…

Smartphone Holography

00 Back in 2010, an article in Computer World magazine quoted Paul Bloom, IBM’s Chief Technology Officer, offering this prediction – “We see 3D video technology moving into the cell phone, which will have the ability to transmit information off the cell phone to create a 3D hologram, projecting the hologram on any surface in life size.” Bloom elaborated on the social and technical aspects this technology might improve, like the ability of a technician…
