Scientists have already proved Albert Einstein’s theory, and now he’s just one of the many AI-generated characters created by MIT researchers. These AI characters can be used to generate compelling learning material for all ages, whether it be content in the classroom or engaging visitors with content at locations like museums, historical monuments as well as nature. Advanced machine learning algorithms help bring prominent historical, modern-day or fictional figures to life.
A low-mileage Porsche 918 Spyder will cost you over $2-million in 2022, but how does it stack up against a Porsche 911 Turbo S? CarWow pits the two against each other in their latest drag racing showdown. The 3,616-pound, mid-engine hypercar is powered by a 4.6L V8 mill combined with two electric motors to generate a combined 875 hp and 944 lb-ft of torque, mated to a 7-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission.
Inventor Allen Pan is a fan of snakes and wanted to do more than just observe them. So, he decided to turn one of them into a cyborg of sorts with four robotic legs, with each one consisting of three joints and two servos. The latter enables the foot to freely pivot and allow it to climb up rugged terrain, while its gait resembles that of a lizard.
Sure, the Ripsaw M5 might be more well equipped for battle, but the Ripsaw F4 is truly a ridiculous ride, one that has been featured in numerous films. It was first introduced at the 2001 North Texas Auto Show where the vehicle caught the attention of the US military. The teams worked together on an MS-1 prototype that was deployed to Iraq in the early 2000s.

McGill University researchers have found that hydrogel bandages can be made sticker and longer lasting by using ultrasound waves and bubbles. This is a game changer for medical adhesives, especially in cases where they are difficult to apply such as on wet skin. How so? The ultrasound induces microbubbles, which transiently push the adhesives into the skin for stronger bioadhesion.
The Google Pixel 6 Pro 5G Smartphone is a flagship device that won’t disappoint, and you can get one for $649 shipped, today only, originally $899. What really sets it apart from its predecessors is an all-new camera system with no sensors all around. Featuring a 50MP Samsung ISOCELL GN1, a 48MP periscope telephoto camera capable of 4X optical zoom, and an updated 12MP ultrawide, while the front-facing 11MP selfie camera can now record 4K video.

Avi Loeb believes that Oumuamua is an extraterrestrial object, and his latest claim is just as extraordinary. The former Harvard Univeristy astrophysicist professor wants to recover pieces of an interstellar meteor he claims fell to Earth in 2014 and into the Pacific Ocean after it arrived from outside our own solar system.
The Porsche Taycan Turbo S has officially set a new Nurburgring record, dethroning the Tesla Model S Plaid. Porsche development driver Lars Kern took just 7 minutes, 33 seconds to complete a full lap in the electric vehicle, which was fitted with the performance kit from Tequipment and Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC).
Saudi Arabia’s ‘THE LINE’ is a great concept, but what if this 75-mile-long mirrored desert skyscraper city was built in the heart of NYC? It would probably look something like this concept video put out by NEOM, which aims to consolidate the city’s footprint to the bare minimum, while enhancing nature and quality of life.
After MIT physicists observed Stephen Hawking’s black hole theorem for the first time, it’s only fitting that researchers develop a curved space robot capable of exploring this region of spacetime where gravity is so strong that nothing can escape. This robot essentially breaks the law of motion stating that a stationary object cannot move without exchanging momentum with its environment.
