In 2016-2017 Tesla plans to produce what they refer to as the “Gen 3” line of vehicles. This will have a major impact in the electric car market. Not only will this new version be about half the price it will also have an increased battery life. As of now the Model S can ride 208 miles on a single charge, so having a longer battery life will dramatically increase the want for this new car along with the lowered price tag of around $35,000. Tesla has also announced that within the next year Tesla Supercharging stations will stretch across the United States and Canada. The future looks bright for this relatively new comer not only to the electric car market but the luxury car market as well.

Artist Incorporates Emoji Into Famous Artworks

In today’s world, people often express themselves via emoji.

One touch of your finger informs others that you’re annoyed, happy or sad without having to type — or worse, speak — a word.

Kiev artist Nastya Ptichek brought the new world into the old through her art project “Emoji-Nation,” which incorporates computer technology into classic paintings.

Ptichek recently told Wired that she “realized that standard iOS emojis strongly resemble some well-known paintings of famous artists,” like this emoji representation of Edvard Munch’s The Scream.

This Amazing Camera Prints Images Onto Handblown Glass

How do you take a photo of a mountain or coastline that doesn’t feel like a hackneyed homage to Ansel Adams? Instagram-esqe photo filters are the solution for many, but artist Emma Howell brings a fresh perspective to old vistas by exposing her photographs on handblown glass vessels.

“Most people are not able to experience a place that is unaffected by the human presence,” says Howell. “So I’m creating a way for others to experience this in a way that’s more than looking at a flat print of the cliché beach we all see and know.”

Instead of film or an SD card, Howell records her images on custom plates using the wet plate collodion process—a set of techniques and chemical formulations that predate the Civil War. Her workflow involves hiking to remote areas with a miniature chemistry lab and darkroom on her back, mixing up a batch of photosensitive chemicals, coating the glass, exposing the shot with a customized camera, and then developing the image—all within the space of 15 minutes.

Pebble Steel – The First Smartwatch Worth Wearing

Leave a comment

.

The Pebble was the smartwatch that started it all — and by “all” we mean a general interest in smartphone notifications on the wrist and a handful of “me too” devices from larger tech companies. Fittingly, the second-gen Pebble Steel comes boasting another distinction: It’s the first smartwatch a normal person might actually want to wear.

From the beginning, Pebble was designed purely as a smartphone aide. An unassuming two-tone, e-ink screen relayed notifications, text messages, and calls from your smartphone to your wrist using Bluetooth. It wasn’t much of a looker — “sporty” might be a charitable way of describing it — but at least the watch face was more reasonably sized than recent competitors like the Qualcomm Toq and Samsung Galaxy Gear.

String Theory Finally Does Something Useful

1 Comment

The theory has long been touted as the best hope for a unified “theory of everything,” bringing together the physics of the vanishingly small and the mindbendingly large. But it has also been criticized and even ridiculed for failing to make any predictions that could be checked experimentally. It’s not just that we don’t have big enough particle accelerators or powerful enough computers; string theory’s most vocal critics charge that no experiment could even be imagined that would prove it right or wrong, making the whole theory effectively useless.

Now, physicists at Imperial College London and Stanford University have found a way to make string theory useful, not for a theory of everything, but for quantum entanglement.

“We can use string theory to solve problems in a different area of physics,” said theoretical physicist Michael Duff of Imperial College London. “In that context it’s actually useful: We can make statements which you could in principle check by experiment.” Duff and his colleagues describe their findings in a paper in Physical Review Letters September 2.

String theory suggests that matter can be broken down beyond electrons and quarks into tiny loops of vibrating strings. Those strings move and vibrate at different frequencies, giving particles distinctive properties like mass and charge. This strange idea could unite all the fundamental forces, explain the origins of fundamental particles and connect Einstein’s general relativity to quantum mechanics. But to do so, the theory requires six extra dimensions of space and time curled up inside the four that we’re used to.

Exoskeletons, Lasers, and Jet Packs: How to Be a Real-Life Iron Man

Leave a comment

.

Aside from the (admittedly considerable) appeal of watching Robert Downey Jr. crack wise as billionaire genius-turned-superhero Tony Stark, perhaps the biggest lure of Marvel’s Iron Man movies is finding out just what kind of amazing toys and gadgets he’s built into the latest version of his high-tech armor this time around. Although such innovations as a costume that unfolds itself from a suitcase onto your body (Iron Man 2‘s “Mark V” armor) or clothes that follow you around when you wear special bracelets (Marvel’s The Avengers‘s Mark VII armor) remain the stuff of science fiction, a surprising amount of the tech on display in the Iron Man mythos has counterparts in our world, even if the reality is a bit less colorful and unlikely to help us in the case of a Chitauri invasion.

From strength-enhancing exoskeletons to repulsor rays and sentient robot sidekicks, becoming a real-life Iron Man wouldn’t be easy — and it definitely wouldn’t be cheap — but it wouldn’t be entirely outside the realm of possibility, either.

A Pilot’s Guide to an Enormous Continent-Crossing Solar Plane

Bertrand Piccard is somewhere high over central California right now, flying southward in a giant airplane powered only by the sun.

Piccard is the co-founder and pilot of Solar Impulse, a solar powered airplane that left Moffett Field south of San Francisco shortly after 6 a.m. PDT today to begin an eight-week journey across the country. As impressive as that sounds, it is but a trial run for the dream he and fellow pilot André Borschberg have been working toward since 2007: a zero-emissions flight around the world in 2015.

The longest journey, as they say, begins with the first step, which for Piccard ends after midnight tonight when he touches down in Phoenix. He and his crew have spent several weeks in California, assembling and testing the aircraft after having it flown from Switzerland aboard a Boeing 747.
