Electric scooters literally litter the streets of San Francisco while 'hoverboards' have mostly come and gone, but the most iconic electric last-mile transportation device is probably the orange-wheeled Boosted Board. Until now, the electric skateboard has come in a single form factor: a big ol' 38-inch ...
SEILING, Oklahoma -. The Seiling Fire Department has been trying to fight wildfires the last several days without a critical piece of equipment.

The union representing aircraft mechanics at UPS. after reaching what they say is an impasse in contract talks with management, has drafted a letter to President Donald Trump seeking his help. “After listening to you speak about hardworking Americans, we were hopeful that the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act ...
The letter adds that the aircraft mechanics have gone without a raise for more than four years, and it closes asking Trump if there is “anything you can do to help.” The union, which represents about 1,200 aircraft mechanics and related workers at UPS, plans to give the letter to members of Congress in a ...
Researchers have figured out a way to improve MRI scans by “lighting up” certain parts of the body using thin layers of diamonds and quantum mechanics. Imagine a harmless solution or gas containing sub-atomic particles manipulated by quantum technology that when injected or inhaled would “light up” ...
Evidently Michigan's makeup-artist lobby is stronger than its mechanics' lobby. That's hardly the only weirdly inconsistent barrier to work in Michigan. As Jarrett Skorup, director of communications for the Michigan-based Mackinac Center, points out in a 2016 report, Michigan requires a license to be a ...

“That's how we've cracked a 40-year old code,” Johnson told Popular Mechanics. “There was a ton of trial and error...we've been going over this for a decade, making tiny changes.” The best part about ICA and its software is that it can be tailored to any engine as a completely independent add-on.
A century after its inception, quantum mechanics continues to puzzle us with dead-and-alive cats, waves “collapsing” into particles, and “spooky action at a distance.” In his first book, What Is Real?, science writer and astrophysicist Adam Becker sets out to explore why the physics community is still arguing ...

Researchers at the University of Vienna and the Austrian Academy of Sciences develop a new theoretical framework to describe how causal structures in quantum mechanics transform. They analyse under which conditions quantum mechanics allows the causal structure of the world to become "fuzzy.
In 2016, Popular Mechanics described an early test involving the material and a M2 .30 caliber armor piercing bullet. The bullet, delivering 2,780 foot-pounds of energy against a block of CMF less than one inch thick, shattered on impact. The same bullet was stopped by one half inch of dense armor plate.
“There are a lot of factors leading up to a crash, but the one that I wish would get more attention is the element of design,” Dennis said in an interview with Popular Mechanics. “Human beings have certain things that they do that are somewhat predictable—cutting corners when you're walking is a very ...

Researchers at MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) have built a fish robot that can swim in the open water alongside the very animals it is researching.

Before forming Mike + The Mechanics, Mike Rutherford was associated with another famous classic rock band. Rutherford is a founder member, guitarist, bass-player and songwriter with Genesis, the British rock group who have sustained massive international success over the last four decades.
Though his work upended what was thought to be a fundamental truth of black holes, Hawking radiation actually did some reconciliation. His work connected two conflicting concepts in theoretical physics: quantum mechanics and the theory of relativity. “Those are the two pillars on which physics now rests, ...
