Although there are trillions of liters of water floating around in the air, it's not easily accessible for those who need it. Now engineers at UC Berkeley have developed a device powered only by the Sun that can pluck practical quantities of drinkable water out of thin air, and they've successfully field-tested it in the Arizona desert...

Building on two decades of research, scientists at University of Texas Southwestern have found that enhancing autophagy, a process of natural "cellular housekeeping" within our bodies, can extend the lifespan of mice by 10 percent and reduce age-related illnesses. The study could serve as an important step toward treating degenerative diseases like Alzheimer's in humans... Continue Reading
Last year, startup RnD64 launched a portable digital guitar called the Jammy that slid out from 12.6 inches long during transit to nearly 20 inches for play. It was certainly an odd-looking strum machine, but had real strings and stretched out to normal guitar length. Now the Delaware team has totally redesigned the travel-friendly instrument, which has just gone up for pre-order... Contin
Audi has announced a second generation for the little A1, which will become available in the United Kingdom in November. The completely redesigned A1 Sportback is longer and more loaded with technology than was the previous-gen of the car. It also has a new exterior and interior design...

It's never a good thing when donated human blood – or even the blood in our bodies – is infected with bacteria. Scientists at the University of California San Diego, however, are developing a means of removing such blood-borne microbes using tiny ultrasound-powered robots...

As a giant dust storm roars across a quarter of the face of Mars, NASA's Opportunity rover is facing possible extinction. In a teleconference, NASA engineers announced today that mission control at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California has lost contact with the unmanned probe, as the storm prevents the craft's solar panels from charging its batteries...

Chameleons are able to change color via a layer of skin cells known as iridophores, which contain nanocrystals. As the lizards stretch or relax their skin, the spacing between those crystals changes, altering the manner in which they reflect light. Now, scientists have designed a color-changing nanolaser that works the same way... Continue Reading Nanolaser changes color, just like a chame
Like fireworks that linger for millennia, nebulae are some of the most photogenic objects in the universe. These vast clouds of dust and gas represent both the birth and death of stars, and their swirling forms lend themselves well to creative names based on whatever shapes observers happen to see in them. New Atlas has collected some of the most breathtaking nebula images ever taken... Co
After a heart attack occurs, non-beating scar tissue forms on the part of the organ that was affected – and this can lead to heart failure. There could be new hope, however, in the form of an implanted device that delivers medication directly to that tissue...

As smartphones get smarter, they inevitably get more expensive, and last year we saw the iPhone X whiz past the US$1,000 mark. But you don't need to crack open the piggy bank to buy a supercomputer just to make calls and send texts – there's a whole range of phones that trim away some of the fat to bring the price down. New Atlas compares the specs and features of some of the best phones y
