Some of the major issues the project addresses are overcrowding, water shortage, pollution, insecurity, limited mobility, and energy deficits within the ZMVM. Team Mexico created a prototype as an
With most Laptops, what you buy is what you get. But two Singapore-based engineers Andrew “Bunnie” Huang and Sean "xobs" Cross want to change the market with a transparent notebook made of open-source
A team of MIT engineers have created 'living cells' made from bacteria that could be used to 'grow' electronic devices. The cells are then used to produce biofilms that incorporate nonliving materials,
An engineer for leading 3D printer manufacturer 3D Systems, Jim Smith decided to build his own large scale 3D printer at home and then used it to produce the world's first 3D-printed kayak. To print the
In a giant case of "we told you so", a group of scientists from Iowa State University published a report this week citing evidence that corn rootworms have evolved to become resistant to genetically
The XXII Winter Olympics are upon us, and over 6,000 athletes are competing from 85 countries in front of thousands of spectators - but the story behind the scenes is every bit as interesting as the
The world's first liquid air engine will take a big step closer to reality this summer when U.K.-based Dearman Engine Company begins full-on vehicle testing of its Dearman heat engine. The nitrogen-fueled
While some have suggested geo-engineering projects could avert a climate change catastrophe, Al Gore described the idea as "insane, utterly mad and delusional in the extreme." The former vice president
Scientists in the UK are working on a new crop of seeds rich with essential Omega-3 fatty acids that could be a sustainable alternative to getting them from wild salmon. Omega-3s are vital for our health
Apple Engineer Uses LEGO Bricks to Build “Hugo”-Inspired Machine That Writes Messages and Draws Pictures!
The Martin Scorsese film Hugo did something fantastic: it gave life to a machine. The automaton featured in the film mirrored technology that really existed in the 18th and 19th century--a time when many
It's not easy to break down compounds such as mineral oils, paints, and organic solvents in wastewater, but a group from Germany believe they have found a way. To remove these tricky materials from the

Australian engineers might have solved one of the biggest obstacles to scaling up solar energy -- the lack of affordable storage technology that allows solar to be used at peak demand after the sun goes
Elon Musk has already conquered land and space with electric vehicle company Tesla Motors and space transport company SpaceX. So perhaps it should come as no surprise that Musk has set his sights on the
Ford set a new speed record at the Daytona International Speedway using a racing car equipped with a pickup truck engine. Racer Colin Braun reached 222.971 mph (358.837 km/h) in a single lap that smashed
Team Ontario’s Super Efficient ECHO House Named Winner of the Engineering Contest at the Solar Decathlon 2013!
In anticipation of the next wave of students and young professionals looking to purchase a home in the next ten years, Team Ontario designed ECHO, a starter home that introduces the concept of sustainable
Elon Musk's recently-announced Hyperloop transportation system has just edged one step closer to reality with two high-profile engineers now backing a crowdsourced, crowdfunded project to get it up and
For thieves, an unsecured bike light is a terribly tempting (and very low-hanging) fruit. After getting sick of having their gear stolen, a team of MIT engineers formed the Fortified Bicycle Alliance
Since the early days of our existence, humans have always been jealous of flying animals. From bugs to birds, we've spent a lot of time trying to copy organisms who have the ability to defy gravity. Our

From mechanical manta rays to giant robo jellyfish, the marine world is well represented in the field of robotics. While many autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) take advantage of energy-efficient
A team of students from the University of California's Riverside Bourns College of Engineering recently developed a simple-yet-brilliant device that can make lawnmowers greener. The team's NOx-Out system
Students at Brigham Young University in Utah have designed a car that can travel the distance from Utah to Michigan on a single gallon of fuel. The fish-shaped car—which weighs less than 100 pounds and
A team of students at the University of Virginia’s School of Engineering and Applied Science mesmerized one and all at the World Cerebral Palsy Day’s “Change My World in One Minute” competition
The Sputnik Engineering production and administration building looks idyllic, sitting on the edge of a beautiful sunflower field in Biel, Switzerland. The cavernous 127,000 square foot complex is home to
Photo via Shutterstock When it comes to energy efficient dynamics, engineers know that gliding is the best way to move. From giant jellyfish to manta rays, researchers have already seen that minimal
When you can't sleep and need to count sheep to drift off, try wrapping your brain one of these eerie glowing lambs from South America. Scientists from the Animal Reproduction Institute of Uruguay (IRAUy)
Ion thruster photo from NASA A team from MIT is working on developing ionic wind thrusters as an energy-efficient, low-emission alternative to conventional propulsion technologies like jet engines.
