Back in 2013 GoSun unveiled its first solar oven. Using parabolic mirrors to focus sunlight, this portable convection oven is designed to cook a variety of foods without the need for a traditional heat source. Now, after several different iterations, the company is launching its cheapest and most portable version, the GoSun Go.
Reminiscent of the Star Wars battle droids, the BionicWheelBot robotic spider was actually inspired by the flic-flac spider (cebrennus rechenbergi). In its native Sahara Desert habitat, that spider walks normally on uneven ground, but rolls/somersaults across smooth terrain – doing so is twice as fast as walking.
Incredible footage has revealed the breathtaking stunts possible in the Seabreacher, a personal torpedo speed boat made out of old fighter jet parts.
The vehicles – which come styled as sharks, killer whales or dolphins – can leap waves in a single bound and carry two passengers underwater.
Prices for the watercraft, which are a combination of jet-ski, racing boat and submarine, vary from around $80,000 (£56,000) to top-of-the-range models costing upwards of $100,000 (£71,000).

When you think about all the logistical challenges involved, perhaps the use of aerial drones to deliver goods to peoples’ homes just isn’t feasible. That’s why several groups are now developing ground-based delivery drones. One of the latest, Barcelona-based Eliport, envisions a system in which people don’t even need to be involved.
Samsung has whipped the covers off its lineup of 2018 TVs, just a day after LG did the same. Along with some OLED devices, the flagships of the range are built with Quantum dot light-emitting diode (QLED) display technology, and the entire line varies in size from a modest 40 in up to a monstrous 88 in. Since they can take up so much living room real estate, Samsung has also packed in a few new features to let the TVs earn their keep even while not in use.
