This Stanford drone has bird legs for perching

Engineers at Stanford University have been working on a robot that is part quadrotor flying drone and part peregrine falcon. The upper half of the robot looks like a common quadrotor drone designed to fly through the air. The lower half of the drone has a pair of clawed feet - significantly different from anything we've seen in the past.

Windows 11 taskbar and Start Menu: Back to the drawing board

Windows 11 taskbar and Start Menu: Back to the drawing board

Compared to the change from Windows 8 to Windows 10, the Windows 11 upgrade seems almost superficial. Of course, there have been many changes under the hood, but the most visible change that most users will see is the new Start Menu and taskbar. Those also happen to be the most controversial, and not just because of how they look. Fortunately, Microsoft doesn't seem to be deaf to those complaints, and it has started to make changes that bring back functionality that was lost in transition.

Jet Appearance styling turns 2022 Lincoln Aviator to the dark side

Jet Appearance styling turns 2022 Lincoln Aviator to the dark side

The 2022 Lincoln Aviator is getting its version of the blacked-out theme that’s ever-so prevalent among new vehicles. Lincoln’s Jet Appearance package has nothing to do with fighter jets despite the Aviator’s aeronautical-themed moniker. Instead, it adds a host of high-gloss black (or jet black) exterior accents replacing the chrome trim you’ll find in the Aviator Monochromatic Reserve Package.

Tesla Cyberquad for Kids is a $1,900 test of patience

Tesla's Cybertruck may not be ready for production yet, nor the Cyberquad ATV that Elon Musk showed of at the controversial electric pickup's big unveil in 2019, but kids at least will be able to have some electric fun. The Tesla Cyberquad for Kids is one of the smallest models in Tesla's line-up, not to mention having the smallest range at around 15 miles, though it's also by far the cheapest.

Microsoft’s Surface Adaptive Kit is on sale: Here’s why it’s important

In 2018, we saw Microsoft launch the Xbox Adaptive Controller, a long, flat controller that supports a wide variety of attachments and is primarily intended for gamers living with disabilities. Fast forward a few years later, and now Microsoft is following up on that concept with the release of the Surface Adaptive Kit.

Chromebooks are about to level up

Chromebooks are about to level up

Chromebooks have seen a massive surge in sales since last year as many schools, families, offices switched to remote or at-home arrangements. This class of devices has always been designed and marketed for such situations, where most of the work and even play happens on the Web, either directly inside browsers or using Web Apps. Things have definitely changed a lot over the past few years, with Chrome OS gaining a lot of capabilities that might also require even more hardware power. Thankfully, that muscle is just around the corner from Qualcomm's newest Snapdragon Compute platforms, just in time for the potential arrival of Steam.

Android 12L tablet-friendly OS starts here, with Lenovo

Android 12L tablet-friendly OS starts here, with Lenovo

Google made a rather unexpected but definitely welcomed announcement in late October that puts a better focus on Android running on large screens, which included not just tablets but also everyone's favorite foldables. Of course, the easiest devices to target with Android 12L are tablets, so it's probably no surprise that a tablet is also the first to get the special spin's first developer preview. As announced back then, the Lenovo Tab P12 Pro is getting that preferential treatment, but its availability almost makes it pretty pointless for many developers.

Galaxy S21 FE price leak suggests Samsung’s plan worked

While Samsung is projecting positive numbers for the sales of its foldable phones, it has had a rather rough year when you consider the rest of its mobile lineup. The Galaxy S20 series didn't rise up to expectations, and the absence of a Galaxy Note this year was strongly felt and heavily discussed. Even the Galaxy S21 FE, which should have launched last October, is becoming a sort of albatross around Samsung's next. It will still arrive next month against all odds, but the odds of its success look slimmer than ever.

This man has the world’s first 3D printed eye

There are a variety of injuries and disease conditions that can result in the loss of an eye. Often, prosthetic eyes are made of glass painted to look like a natural eyeball.
