University of British Columbia (UBC) researchers have developed an eco-friendly concrete that can be sprayed onto the exterior of buildings to make them as strong as steel and capable of withstanding many unforeseen disasters. Called Eco-friendly Ductile Cementitious Composite (EDCC), it's mainly comprised of an industrial by-product called fly ash, which makes it durable, malleable and much more ductile than normal concrete. The research team sprayed EDCC on concrete block walls one-half inch thick, and then simulated a magnitude 9 earthquake. "The results of these tests have been amazing. We can shake the wall extensively without it failing," said UBC engineering Ph.D. candidate Salman Soleimani-Dashtaki. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

The Kirin 970 CPU is basically an octa-core chip built on a 10nm manufacturing process, with 5.5 billion transistors, enabling AI on future Huawei phones, and the P11 could e one of them. The new NPU (Neutral Processing Unit) can deliver 25 times the performance with 50 times the power efficiency of a quad-core Cortex-A73 cluster. Other features include: 128GB of internal storage, 6GB of RAM, and dual rear cameras with Leica optics. Continue reading for more pictures and information.
It's only a matter of time before autonomous cars take over the roads, and the Continental BEE might be one of them. Simply put, it's a "swarm" of electric, on-demand, self-driving cars that can be summoned with a smartphone. They will be powered by a compact electric motor that offers a range of up to 218 miles, while topping out at 37 mph. The company believes that it's possible to have thousands of Bees operating in a single city at one time. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

On just a single charge, you can expect a maximum range of 300 miles. Continue reading for more fascinating images from around the web.
Treepex is not a concept, but rather a real device that claims to use living tree cells compressed in replaceable cartridges to transform carbon dioxide into oxygen, emulating a tree's ability to filter polluted air into mineral-enriched air. It was developed by a Georgian, Tbilisi-based, startup using a new technology called CRISPR, which is allegedly able "to extract the DNA of actual trees to recreate the living cells that are responsible for photosynthesis" by simply inserting a cartridge into the tubular Treepex.

Not just any off-road vehicle, the Chevrolet Colorado ZH2 is touted as the "most extreme off-road-capable fuel-cell-powered electric vehicle ever from General Motors," as it stands more than 6.5 feet tall and 7 feet wide. Reinforced inside and out, it rides on 37-inch tires and a specially modified suspension that helps the vehicle climb over and descend all manner of terrain. The U.S. Army plans on testing the Colorado ZH2 in extreme field conditions next year to determine the viability of hydrogen-powered vehicles on military missions. It features an Exportable Power Take-Off unit (EPTO) that allows the fuel cell to power activity away from the vehicle, such as remote locations where electric power may otherwise be unavailable.
