A Food Scanner From The Future


It seems like life resembles science fiction more and more each day. Films like Star Trek, Star Wars, Blade Runner, and others have no doubt influenced the technology we use in the house today (See: Anything that has to do with 3-D printing). However, bringing these gadgets to life is arguably more exciting than watching them on-screen.

Albert Einstein in 1905 suggested that travelling faster than the speed of light was impossible, both physically and mathematically. According to his Theory of Relativity, which encompasses several relativity hypothesis’, the speed of light is invariant, or the same for all observers. This means that nothing can exceed that set speed, with zero exceptions. However, a duo of Australian scientists believe that Einstein’s theory is open for translation, and allows for an extension that might prove the theory’s “insurmountable wall” as not so unattainable after all. They believe that the equation to validate faster than light travel’s feasibility actually lies… read more

Building The Enterprise

Fortunately for Trekkie fans, this may happen 200 years sooner than predicted if an engineer known as BTE Dan has his way.

Dan has made the layout available on his website, and hopes that others will join him with financial backing and construction support. His website claims that the spaceship will… read more
