Scientists create matter from light, give hope for a future with lightsabers

A future with lightsabers just got a little more promising, according to a scientific breakthrough by MIT and Harvard scientists. For the first time, scientists have managed to create matter out of light, something that has been theoretically possible but never before accomplished. Furthermore, this discovery flips long-accepted understanding about light and photons on its head, and results in lasers that interact with each other in a manner similar to lightsabers.

PlayStation 4 review round-up

PlayStation 4 review round-up

There's little to be said about a gaming console when it's barely hit store shelves in the way of final judgement. With the device appearing for the first time tomorrow (it hits stores tomorrow), the PlayStation 4 (or PS4 for short) is appearing in shortened reviews across the web. What you'll find is a whole lot of agreement on the potential of the device - but not a whole lot of years-spanning verdicts on the device as a whole.

VIEVU teams with Motorola Solutions for new body-worn video cameras

VIEVU teams with Motorola Solutions for new body-worn video cameras

The oncoming collection of BWV (body worn video) cameras coming from VIEVU may remind you of Narrative Clip - aka the cameras formerly known as Memoto. But here as the VIEVU team announces a partnership with Motorola Solutions, they push forth a small form-factor, highly secure camera made for security organizations, police, and law enforcement in general. In other words - if you get your hands on one of these, you'll either have purchased on direct from VIEVU or you'll have copped one off a cop.

Samsung Gear Glass tipped for 2014

Samsung Gear Glass tipped for 2014

Samsung will launch a Google Glass rival, currently dubbed the Galaxy Gear Glass, sometime in Q2 2014 an insider claims, supposedly expanding its wearable family with a head-worn computer. The work-in-progress gadget is expected to arrive in April or May next year, according to Eldar Murtazin, following up the Galaxy Gear smartwatch which Samsung launched in Berlin last month. Although still unconfirmed by Samsung itself, the teased device needn't be too far from what Samsung has already developed for the wrist.

10-terawatt laser fits on a desktop

10-terawatt laser fits on a desktop

A group of physicists from the Laser Center of the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences and the Faculty of Physics of the Warsaw University have teamed up to create a new type of optical amplifier for lasers. The creation of the amplifier has allowed the team of scientists to create a laser producing 10-terawatts of power that is small enough to fit on a desktop.

iPhone detects earthquakes: seismologists envision universal detection grid

iPhone detects earthquakes: seismologists envision universal detection grid

Italian seismologists Antonino D'Alessandro and Giuseppe D'Anna of the National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology at Pisa have pinpointed the accuracy of the iPhone accelerometer--the miniscule chip that detects motion, relays the data to the phone's firmware, and ultimately governs the orientation of the phone's display--to detect moderate to strong earthquakes when near the quake's epicenter.

Stanford particle accelerator delivered smaller than grain of rice

Stanford particle accelerator delivered smaller than grain of rice

The U.S. Department of Energy, with the help of researchers at Stanford University and other public and private institutions, have demonstrated the ability of a chip no larger than a grain of rice to accelerate particles 10 times faster than a conventional particle accelerator can do alone. The chip, which is specially nano-fabricated of fused silica, has the potential to drastically scale down the machinery necessary for particle research, security scanners, medical devices and other technology. The global effect of this advance could be just as revolutionary as silicon was.

Infiniti EMERG-E First Drive

Infiniti EMERG-E First Drive

As environmentally-friendly concepts go, Nissan's Infiniti EMERG-E is definitely more in the BMW i8 camp of performance first, rather than the meek eco-boxes that can give EVs a bad name, and we've been lucky enough to grab a test drive of one of the two working cars in existence while at Nissan 360. While most concepts look great but can often manage no more than a sluggish roll from delivery trailer to car show stand, the 402HP EMERG-E isn't short on either power or poise. Read on for some first impressions.

Terminator movie reboot in 2015 (but is Arnie in it?)

Terminator movie reboot in 2015 (but is Arnie in it?)

Terminator is the next sci-fi classic to get a reboot, with news that the 1984 movie will return as part one of a new trilogy in 2015, with rumors that Arnold Schwarzenegger will star. The new three-parter is the handiwork of Paramount Pictures, Skydance, and Annapurna Pictures, and though there's no indication of who might direct the first movie, there's already a pair of high-profile writers attached to take on the screenplay.
