6 Seat Luxury Submarine

6 Seat Luxury Submarine

It’s not every day you see a mini submarine that catches your eye.

I can only imagine this, but there must come a point in a billionaire’s life where they’ve run out of things to buy. There are the houses, the cars, the Michelin star restaurants, and then there’s the yacht.…

DIY 4K Projector

Once upon a time, we had vague plans to build a DIY projector from an old PC screen and some tatty bits of wood. Honestly, we’d never have done it much justice even if I hadn’t clumsily short-circuited the monitor and put an end to it.…

Terraplanter – An Inverse Plant Pot

There have been other self-watering planters before, but there are always issues with getting the right level of moisture, there’s dirt involved to make things messy, and they always look a bit, well, rubbish.

Point-of-Care MRI

US company Hyperfine recently received FDA approval for their groundbreaking mobile point-of-care MRI scanner.

Run-of-the-mill MRI machines are massive, permanent installations requiring liquid helium-cooled cryogenic superconducting coils and giant power supplies, whereas the Hyperfine machine can be rolled into a room and be plugged into a typical wall socket in a manner similar to existing portable Ultrasound and X-ray machines, without the hazardous ionising radiation of the former.…
