GeoOrbital Wheel adds an electric motor to your bike in 60 seconds


I enjoy riding my bike around town. I don't do it often enough, but when I do, it's nice to be able to travel around, get some breeze in my face, and just enjoy being outside. Of course, sometimes I just want to enjoy that without all of the hard work of pedaling up a big hill. There are two ways around that: I can either plan my route to avoid any hills, or I can get a little assistance.

How To Determine If You Can Trust Cloud Security

What we need is the cloud security version of a trust fall.

You may have taken part in this team-building exercise: You fall backward into the arms of a coworker while trusting that they’ll catch you before your khakis-clad behind hits the ground. It’s easier to take that plunge when your colleagues have given you reasons to trust them: They step up when you need a hand at work, they have built a solid reputation, they have your back when things go awry.

Robotic Roaches May Be The Future Of Earthquake Rescue

Believe it or not, we may soon find ourselves thankful for the mighty cockroach’s ability to get through the tiniest of cracks to just about anywhere it darned likes. Inspired by roaches’ ultra-flexible yet incredibly strong bodies, researchers at the University of California, Berkeley’s Department of Integrative Biology have developed a prototype for an insect-like rescue robot that could safely seek out humans in the kind of chaotic rubble that earthquakes and other disasters leave behind.
