If Boeing succeeds with the XS-1 project, humanity's abilities to guard, repair, and replace satellites — which both civilians and the military rely upon heavily — will be exponentially enhanced. DARPA is hopeful that Boeing is up to the task. “The XS-1 would be neither a traditional airplane nor a conventional launch vehicle but rather a combination of the two, with the goal of lowering launch costs by a factor of ten and replacing today’s frustratingly long wait time with launch on demand,” DARPA program manager Jess Sponable said in a press release . “We’re very pleased with Boeing’s progress on the XS-1 through Phase 1 of the program and look forward to continuing our close collaboration in this newly funded progression to Phases 2 and 3fabrication and flight.” If the design and testing phases all go as planned, we should see the XS-1 in the air in 2020.

Mandarin is the language of choice among its residents and on its street signs and advertising hoardings; clocks are set to Beijing time in homes, stores and even municipal buildings; and the Yuan is by far and away the most common currency. Any overseas visitors dropping in to Ton Pheung could be excused for thinking themselves in China - albeit a slightly raunchy theme-park version with an unusual preponderance of massage parlours and nightclubs along its streets. But Ton Pheung is actually in the far northwest of communist Laos - on the border with China, but still in name, if increasingly not in reality, a sovereign district of the Lao People's Democratic Republic. Yet few here see it that way. Over the past decade, Chinese investors have moved in, building shopping malls and casinos and glitzy hotel complexes and importing a way of life that is a long way from the traditional norms in Laos - an impoverished landlocked nation where 80 percent of the population still scrape a living from small-scale farming.

Magikarp, the most useless Pokémon ever, is the star of a brand new Pokémon mobile game: Magikarp Jump . Magikarp Jump , released yesterday on iOS and Google Play , is all about catching Magikarp, training them to jump as high as possible, and competing against other Magikarp in jumping contests. That's pretty much all this dopey-looking fish-mon can do. Such a sense of accomplishment. Image: The Pokémon Company Instead of running around and catching Pokémon with Pokéballs in traditional Pokémon fashion, you reel in Magikarp with a fishing rod to take them under your wing. The goal is to train your trusty Magikarp enough through feeding and exercise sessions to compete in Magikarp jumping leagues. Read more...

[Alex Williams] created his Open Source Underwater Glider project as an entry to The Hackaday Prize, and now it's one of our twenty finalists. This sweet drone uses motor-actuated syringes to serve as a ballast tank, which helps the glider move forward without the use of traditional propellers. Unlike most UAVs, which use motors to actively move the craft around, [Alex]’s glider uses the syringes to change the buoyancy of the craft, and it simply glides around on its wings. When the craft starts getting too deep, the syringes push out the water and the glider rises toward the surface until it’s ready for another glide. This low-power solution allows for long-term science projects and research. In addition to conserving power, the glider’s slow travel does not disturb the water or sea life. [Alex]’s goal is to make his glider open source and 3D printable, combined with off-the-shelf hardware and ArduSub under the hood.
