It is believed that it could be a several...

There’s been a lot of talk in recent times about 3D printers. We have already seen how they can be used to print anything from food to guns and replacement body parts. What about the colour though? We aren’t going to be expected to start printing lasagne, Kalashnikovs and new ears in just one colour, are we? Thankfully we aren’t. This is thanks to the new full colour...

If you thought that nothing in the world could be better than eating chocolate then it is time to get a jacket. No, really. Of course, we aren’t talking about slipping on any old jacket here. Eating a bar of chocolate while wearing your old bomber jacket or satin windbreaker isn’t likely to lead to an enhanced experience. No, what we are talking about here is the Cadbury’s...

We love technology and we love 3D printing but, most of all, we love chocolate and other sugary stuff which rots our teeth and keeps our dentists rich. The good news is that companies have used the CES 2014 in Las Vegas to show us how technology can be used in the future to help us make food. 3D printed food, that is. Sweet, chocolatey treats, to be exact. 2 different...

What do you give the successful business person who has everything? Maybe you could consider a supersonic private jet. At least it’s more interesting than a pair of socks. A new start-up company called Spike Aerospace wants to give corporate money men the chance to get to their meetings a lot quicker. When we say a lot quicker we mean Mach 1.6 quicker. This will get...

If you are ever in London then there is a good chance that you either travel in a black cab or at least admire them as they go past. However, one thing you almost certainly don’t do is view them as cool, cutting edge vehicles because, frankly, they aren’t. That’s all about to change, though. A brand new black cab has been designed for use in the capital and it looks...

Lettuce is useful for a lot of things but its presence in the world of gadgets is sadly limited for some reason. The lactuca sativa – we know our Latin on here and we don’t mind showing off now and then either – is great for making your burgers slightly less unhealthy and, well, that’s probably about it really. It’s just as well then that some crazed...

Is there anything more annoying in the modern world than the string of passwords we need to remember to check our mail, look at our bank accounts or do pretty much anything else online? Sure, global warming, overpopulation, the financial crisis and the proliferation of nuclear weapons are all pretty worrying. However, none of that seems so important when we are faced with...

Have you ever wondered how many days you have left until you shuffle off this mortal coil, pop your clogs and kick the bucket? Hey, they’ve got an app for that now. This cheery little piece of technological wizardry is called Days of Life and it is described as motivational app. Basically, it shows a little counter which tells you how many days you have left. In case...

Can you imagine getting your Amazon purchases delivered to your door by a flying drone? It sounds like a crazy idea and, well, it is a crazy idea. However, that doesn’t mean that it might not happen sometime soon. Jeff Bezos is a man who knows about these things, as he is the Chief Executive of Amazon. He said that they are testing the used of unmanned drones as a way...
