HP Z220 SFF Workstation Review

HP Z220 SFF Workstation Review

This week we've got our hands on the latest member of HP's workstation family in the HP Z220 SFF, and inside this box we've found what must be the easiest to modify computer on the planet. Not only can you plug and play everything you've come to expect from an HP whose case side literally has a giant hand-sized hinge made for opening, but you've got screw-less entry basically everywhere as well. Power of the machine that results aside, this is one fabulously presto change-o computing magician if ever have we seen one.

NASA discovers ice in Shackleton crater on the moon

NASA discovers ice in Shackleton crater on the moon

One of the things NASA has longed to discover on the moon is the existence of water ice. There have been numerous scientific missions dedicated to the task of discovering ice on the moon. NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter is now helping scientists to confirm of the existence of water ice on the moon. The discovery was made on the floor of Shackleton crater.

Corning flexible Willow Glass revealed for ultra-slim power

Corning flexible Willow Glass revealed for ultra-slim power

At the Society for Information Display's Display Week in Boston, Corning has revealed that they've begun working on their next-generation flexible Willow Glass. This glass will be made for what we must assume will be flexible displays on mobile devices and will allow the possibility of displays being "wrapped" around a device or structure. Corning Willow Glass is able to be processed at temperatures up to 500 degrees C, this allowing manufacturers to move forward with continuous "roll-to-roll" processes, a "long awaited industry milestone" in manufacturing efficiency.

Leica M Monochrom shoots only black and white

Leica M Monochrom shoots only black and white

Perhaps more than any other camera company, Leica inspires raving reviews and gets near universal praise from enthusiasts, for which it demands some astronomical price tags. But even Leica's most dedicated supporters might have trouble backing this one: the company's latest M-class camera only shoots monochrome photos. The Leica M Monochrom was announced today, and will start shipping in July for the "relatively" low price of $7,950.

Pop Video iPhone projector beams qHD for $99

Pop Video iPhone projector beams qHD for $99

The idea of the pico projector is a novel one, but often the low resolution and poor light output makes them not entirely practical. That hasn’t stopped Samsung from creating a whole phone based around the idea, and now there’s an accessory for iPhone fans that should hopefully fare better than past offerings. The Pop Video projector attaches to the iPhone using the 30-pin dock connector, and can output at a qHD resolution.

Asteroids smacked constantly with microscopic high-speed impacts

Asteroids smacked constantly with microscopic high-speed impacts

The Japanese asteroid probe Hayabusa was sent to an asteroid called 25143 Itokawa years ago. It was recovered in June of 2010. The probe returned more than 1500 microscopic grains of dust that are currently being investigated to learn all that can be learned about asteroids and what the conditions on an asteroid are like. Scientists studying these dust grains retrieved from the asteroid had been able to confirm some new findings.

Self-healing electronics are possible thanks to liquid metal capsules

Self-healing electronics are possible thanks to liquid metal capsules

If you have some sort of circuit board that is bent enough to crack the wires inside that are hiding on the board, your day is over. Once a normal circuit has broken wires, the conduction of signals stops. In the future, that broken wire or connection may not mean the end of being able to use your gear. Scientists at the University of Illinois have developed a cool new self-healing electronic circuit.

Haptic touchscreen tech creates virtual textures [Video]

Haptic touchscreen tech creates virtual textures [Video]

A new haptic touch system that can dynamically change the physical feel of a control surface beneath the fingertip has been developed, potentially revolutionizing touchscreens and portable devices. Swiss EPFL researchers discovered that a piezoelectric surface that flexes at the micron level can create a textured panel a user's finger can perceive.
