Researchers have developed a way to use regular Wi-Fi signals to screen bags for dangerous objects ...

It's an unfortunate truth that weapons and explosives in public places are an increasing problem, with some schools in the US beginning to implement security checkpoints. But many of these technologies are bulky and expensive to set up, and require staff to operate. Now a new study has found a way to tap into a type of signal that's already ubiquitous in most public places – plain old Wi-Fi.

Knaus Tabbert sibling brands Weinsberg and Knaus show some sporty camper van concepts - the Weinsberg ...

A year ago, Knaus Tabbert introduced a new kind of CUV, the "caravanning utility vehicle." Try as it might, it won't be convincing anyone outside the company that "CUV" is anything more than a cutesy marketing term for a camper van. But inside the company, that term is inspiring some innovative thinking. Knaus will show the latest fruits of that thinking at the 2018 Düsseldorf Caravan Salon, fruits that will include two all-new concept vans that show the path for a sportier, more aggressive future. Knaus takes camper vans full-on "fast and furious."

Sandia researchers Michael Chandross (left) and Nic Argibay, overseeing the testing of the platinum-gold alloy that's ...

Engineers at Sandia National Laboratories have developed what they say is the most durable metal alloy ever created. Made up of a combination of platinum and gold, the new material is apparently 100 times more wear-resistant than high-strength steel, which makes it the first metal alloy to join the same class as diamond. Even better, through use it naturally produces its own lubricant, in a form that normally requires some fiddly engineering.

The massive achievement should accelerate research into the breeding of more resilient and higher yielding wheat ...

After a massive international effort involving over 200 scientists across 20 countries, the entire wheat genome has finally been sequenced. Described as a "Herculean challenge," the wheat genome is known to be five times larger than its human counterpart and exponentially more complex. The landmark human achievement is hoped to lead to more efficient wheat breeding and production of crops.

Members of the ASTERIA team prepare the petite satellite for its journey to space

Having won the Small Satellite Mission of the Year award, the Arcsecond Space Telescope Enabling Research in Astrophysics (ASTERIA) satellite has put the icing on the cake by claiming the first exoplanet to be detected by a CubeSat. About the size of a briefcase, the miniature spacecraft was able to accurately measure the transit light curve of the already known super-Earth exoplanet 55 Cancri e as it passed in front of its parent star.

The Auxdron Lifeguard Drone

This Wednesday, a group of seven swimmers located about 70 m (230 ft) from the beach at Spain's port of Sagunto found themselves caught in an undertow and being swept out to sea. After they signalled one of the lifeguards, an onsite Auxdron Lifeguard Drone was flown out to perform a rescue.
