Cyclists now have their own glow in the dark road

Cyclists now have their own glow in the dark road

The Netherlands seems to have a fascination with things that glow in the dark. Just after completing the "smart highway", a.k.a. highway N329 in Oss with glow in the dark road paint, designer Daan Roosegaarde is at it again, this time in Nuenen, to shed some light on a bike path during the night. It uses the same technology but applied on a smaller scale and with more styling this time around. The effect is both enchanting and slightly disturbing, which perhaps presents a predicament to cyclists in the area.

Robot dolphins go deep to understand Antarctic melt

Robot dolphins go deep to understand Antarctic melt

We knew the West Antarctic ice was melting, but it's taken a school of robotic dolphins to figure out why, with researchers at Caltech using ocean gliders to explore the ocean eddies responsible. The six foot long robots take advantage of changes in buoyancy to soar through the water, rather than propellers, and swam the Southern Ocean off the coast of the Antarctic Peninsula for two months, diving to depths of around 1.2 miles before surfacing again to report their findings around temperature and salinity via radio links to the Caltech team.

Westeros recreated using 600,000 LEGO bricks

Westeros recreated using 600,000 LEGO bricks

What can't you make with LEGOs? We've seen a functional mech sleeve, an inexpensive braille printer, even a rotating iPhone dock. And that's not to mention the movie and other entertainment that has been LEGO-fied. It only makes sense, then, that someone would tackle Game of Thrones, and those someones have done so in a very big way: with a massive full-scale replica of the series' world Westeros, complete with a huge white wall and Tyrion Lannister perched upon it...relieving himself.

Facebook News Feed tweak tames motormouth friends

Most of us have them: those Facebook "friends" who we like well enough, sure, but whose constant rambling turns the News Feed into a monologue and a dreary one at that. Facebook is rolling out new tools today to make tweaking what the News Feed shows - and doesn't show - more straightforward, with the useful ability to pare back on the amount you see from certain people without being forced to actively remove them from your friends list altogether. Meanwhile, there's also the ability to see whose posts you've been seeing the most of.

Onyx: the Star Trek communicator made real

Onyx: the Star Trek communicator made real

After a year in development, the team at OnBeep have created a device by the name of Onyx. This device closely replicates the abilities of a walkie-talkie, a push-to-talk phone, and of course - a Star Trek communicator. One from The Next Generation, of course, not one of those old-school communicators you had to hang on your belt. That'd just be madness... or a smartphone. The Onyx was made to work in emergency situations at first, but it's prepared to work in any environment in the real world.
