"Drones" is a broad term, encompassing both the friendly multirotor type that carry GoPros over snowboarders, and the more menacing UAV type that fires rockets into convoys. The safe kind requires little more than a credit card to acquire, whereas the dangerous kind needs an encrypted satellite uplink and a team of burnt-out pilots manning workstations in Nevada. Those differing barriers of entry are why I don't like the idea of weaponizing the former. Yet it's happening, though the people doing it may not realize they're doing it. First graffiti artist Katsu rigged up a drone that could spraypaint . If multirotor drones can spray paint, then they can spray other compressed gasses, which I imagine has to give a terrorist ideas. And now a power company in China has rigged up a drone that can spray fire . What's happening is that airborne garbage is getting caught on overhead high voltage lines.

Picture, if you will, a house. What comes to mind? Four walls, square windows, a rectangular door? Changes are there's a lot of right angles. But one look at a home built by LA-based Binishells is all it takes to realize that this construction company is doing things differently and thinking outside the box. Binishells president and CEO Nicolò Bini is continuing the work of his father, who developed the technology for these domed buildings back in the 1960s. It's something Bini refers to as building 2.0 a cleaner, safer, less wasteful and more cost-efficient way of doing construction. It doesn't hurt that it looks really cool, too. Read more...

Autonomous automobiles aren't taking over American highways yet, but automation is becoming a bigger part of the driving experience. A mobile phone app called Shell allows drivers to pay for a fill-up of gasoline from their in-car touchscreens. No debit or credit cards are involved, so the process will work for drivers who forgot their wallets. The downside? The app will take care of the payment, but somebody — in most states, the driver — still has to get out and manually insert the fuel pump nozzle into the car's gas tank. Here's how it works, assuming the user already has downloaded the Shell app and connected the mobile phone to the car's network. The car's touchscreen will guide the user to the nearest service station (a Shell station, of course, considering the app's name). After pulling up to the gas pump, the user enters a PIN code and the gas pump's number.

Some of his closest advisors, like W. Averell Harriman, were shocked at how little Roosevelt seemed to care about the international situation. Writing in his journal, Harriman noted that the President consistently shows very little interest in Eastern European matters except as they affect sentiment in America. Before Roosevelts election in 1934, the executive branch and Congress had snubbed Russia. Convinced that the new Bolshevik government was eager to undermine the American government through spying and meddling via the Communist International, or Comintern (think of todays hacking scandals), they refused to recognize the Soviet Union and send an ambassador there. This, by the way, did not stop American companies from selling to the Bolsheviks millions of dollars worth of steel and technology for its new factories, and doing so with the tacit approval of the same politicians who lambasted the Red Menace in the press.

Star Trek has never let technology get in the way of a good story. Gene Roddenberry and the writers of the show thought up some amazing gadgets, from transporters to replicators to the warp core itself. Star Trek: The Next Generation brought us the iconic communicator badge. In 1987, a long-range radio device which could fit in a pin was science fiction. [Joe] is bringing these badges a bit closer to the real world with his entry in the 2017 Hackaday Sci-Fi Contest . The first problem [Joe] dealt with was finding a radio which could run from watch batteries, and provide decently long-range operations. He chose the HopeRF RFM69HCW. Bringing fiction a bit closer to reality, this module has been used for orbital communications with low-cost satellites . The Badge's processor is a Teensy LC. [Joe] is rolling his own Teensy, which means using bootloader chips from PJRC, as well as the main microcontroller.

It's the future. Where you don't drive cars—they drive you. Sure, its intelligence is artificial, but its fragrance is as natural as it gets.

And when you see more users, developers are enticed to make more apps, and the interest swells. Which is why Apple, the maker of the most popular platforms for app developers and the world's most popular smartwatch, is in pole position to make the world's best running watch... the one that's on your wrist when you want to go running. There will always be a place for the high-end equipment, as we've got advances in body temperature tracking, more precise GPS and heart rate monitoring, blood oxygen monitoring and gyroscopes to come all of which will give you more accurate data. But the smartwatch's biggest problem is locked-in and poorer-quality data and with Strava finally appearing on the Apple Watch, we're nearing the finish line of that problem being solved. Gareth Beavis is TechRadar's Running Man of Tech, testing the latest in fitness technology in a never-ending quest to run further and faster and bringing you the results in a weekly column.
