Scientific Technological Breakthroughs

The world is an exciting place, filled with unknowns, but each year, we come up with some amazing scientific / technological breakthroughs that once seemed impossible. For example, StoreDot is a charging solution that can re-charge a mobile phone battery from empty to full in a mere 30-seconds. The company is currently working on a variant that should also be able to charge electric cars - such as the Tesla Model S and Nissan Leaf - in just three minutes. StoreDot says is working on reducing the size of the charger, with the production model being a small unit that costs double the price of an average charger, about £20.

Star Wars Speeder Bike

Google engineer Adam Woodworth wanted a Star Wars Speeder Bike, but creating a full-sized version from scratch would've taken far too long, that's excluding the cost of building such a vehicle. So, he transformed a 1:6 scale Hasbro Power Of The Force series Speeder Bike into a working R/C quadcopter. He says: "The big challenge was to figure out how lift the whole thing, without making it look like just a big quad rotor tacked on. I did some layout in CAD, based off of an overhead picture of the model, and experimented with different rotor layouts that just barely cleared the rider and bike elements, kept the center of lift over the center of gravity, and was capable of lifting about 600grams. I ended up settling on a layout of four rotors, driven by 880kv 28mm motors." Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

Rare Interesting Pictures

Another week, another round of interesting and geeky pictures you might have missed. Starting off, we have the Fukang Meteorite, which is purported to be 4.5-billion years old. It was unearthed by a hiker who had always wondered what the metal and crystals were on the giant rock he always had lunch on. So, he took a hammer, chisel and the rest is history. Since it was first discovered in 2000, the meteorite has been divided into dozens of thin slices and auctioned or distributed around the world, netting millions.
