Goodbye, See You Next Year

A few weeks ago we reported on how their dog-like Spot robots are being used to remotely treat patients in Boston hospitals. More recently, Spots were deployed in public parks in Singapore to encourage residents to maintain […]

Please Do Not Buy the $350 5GBioShield Scam

A few weeks ago we reported on the conspiracy theory that 5G wireless signals cause coronavirus, a theory which seemed to cause a pandemic of cell tower arson.

Since 2004 the US Air Force has been operating a fully autonomous space plane, one that is slightly less secret than the Air Force may want it to be. Orbital launches are big and […]

What is a Murder Hornet?

2020 is beginning to seem a bit cursed. Our recent headlines have been a bit doom and gloom, first a global pandemic, then increasing quarantines and shutdowns, then desperate koalas, and so much more. It doesn’t come as much of a surprise that we now have something new to worry about, “murder hornets”. As the name suggests, these insects are […]
