Stacam actioncam has its own mini gimbal

The Stacam features an Ambarella A12 Chipset, a Sony IMX337 image sensor, and a 90-degree seven-glass ...

When it comes to gimbal-stabilized HD cameras, we're used to models that are attached to control handles, or that are mounted on drones. What if you want one that's just a stand-alone unit, though? Well, that's where the Stacam comes in.

"New" duck-billed dinosaur is actually one of the oldest

A illustration depicting what Aquilarhinus palimentus may have looked like in life

Although they may not be as well-known as "exciting" dinosaurs such as the Tyrannosaurus, the duck-billed hadrosaurs were the most common plant-eating dinosaurs at the end of the Mesozoic Era. Now, a newly-classified member of the group appears to be a common ancestor to the various types that came later.

Discarded insulation wool finds use in better mortar

Samples of the mineral wool-containing mortar

When buildings are being insulated or torn down, a lot of waste "mineral wool"-type insulation ends up in the landfill. Thanks to new research, however, that material may soon instead find use in an improved type of construction mortar.

Fraunhofer developing a drone-strike test for aircraft

Fragments of drone batteries litter the bottom of Fraunhofer's current testing rig

For many years now, newly-developed aircraft have been required to pass tests indicating that they could withstand mid-air collisions with birds. No such standardized testing exists for the growing possibility of collisions with drones, however … it's a situation which Germany's Fraunhofer Institute for Short-Time Dynamics intends to rectify

Laser tech is set to measure earthquake damage to buildings

A diagram illustrating how the Discrete Diode Position Sensor works

How safe would you feel, going back into a multi-story building that had just been through an earthquake? A new sensor system could allay your fears, as it optically measures how much a building has swayed, and thus how damaged it may be.

Injected after accidents, nanoparticles could prevent paralysis

The technology may someday be incorporated into an EpiPen-like device, that would be used to rapidly ...

When a spinal cord injury occurs, sometimes it's the body's own immune system that causes the subsequent paralysis. In the not-too-distant future, however, it's possible that an injection of nanoparticles at the injury site may be able to reign in the well-meaning but destructive immune cells.
