Unbeknownst to a lot of people, there is a great amount of trash beyond earth, orbiting the planet in space. To solve this, a number of self-destructing janitor satellites will be sent to outer space to start some clean-up.
The exact geographical location of the line between rip-off and inspiration is making its way into headlines again, this time in relation to Minecraft and its growing army of clones. Of which Minecraft may yet turn out to be a part, if FortressCraft’s creator Adam Sawkins’ logic holds true. ”There’s nothing that FortressCraft shares with Minecraft that it does not also share with Infiniminer,” he says.

Dedicated Bioware fans will know Drew Karpyshyn as the writer with a hand in almost all of Bioware’s finest creations for the past decade.

Harvard scientists have devised a way to print out sheets of their own Mobee robots to eliminate human error in assembly. The new robots can be assembled in a single movement.
The iPad is probably the most versatile tool that man has ever created. That’s why it sells so well. One of the things that it can do, which you have probably never even thought of, is to give a voice-less comedian his voice, so he can tell jokes before an audience.
If you’re an avid biker, a dynamo-powered lighting solution trumps out any old battery sipping tech any day. It’s just more convenient as well as less worrisome.
