Do-it-yourself invisibility with 3-D printing
Seven years ago, Duke University engineers demonstrated the first working invisibility cloak in complex laboratory experiments. Now it appears creating a simple cloak has become a lot simpler.
New circuit design allows for elimination of laptop charger brick
Can you drive fast enough to avoid being clocked by speed cameras?
Anyone wanting to avoid being caught out by speed cameras can do so very simply - by obeying the speed limits.
