  • The Federation Internationale de l'Automobile recently finalized regulations regarding the 'Halo' safety device's place in the 2018 Formula 1 season, deeming it mandatory for all competitors. After being put to a vote with nine out of 10 teams against the ruling, the motorsport governing body still decided to mandate the equipment, despite potential cost and deadline concerns. Now, reports claim that there are three companies bidding to supply Formula 1 with the equipment, and prices have been quoted at approximately €13,000 to €24,000 (about $15,000 to $28,000 U.S. dollars), or about as much as a small car.Gemany's Auto Motor und Sportreports that these three companies are vying to manufacture the 'Halo' for Formula One, Formula Two, and Formula E. The equipment, viewed as necessary by the FIA, will reinforce the car's cockpit and provide safety in case of a rollover or impact.Many teams were skeptical about the supposed-early decision to mak..

  • Researchers at the University of South Australia have developed a drone that remotely measures your heartbeat and breathing rate. Naturally, this would be a huge boon to the medical field, as the unmanned aerial vehicles could be stationed in hospitals, clinics, and even on the battlefield. Drones are increasingly relieving all sorts of industries from a lack of personnel, and the medical field is one that could benefit the most, regarding the value of life.The drones use video footage measure vital signs, researchers explain. The project was inspired by the search for something more elegant than connecting sensors to patients, which quite often led to infections in newborn babies in developing countries. With these UAVs, which can analyze a patient from up to 9 feet away, that risk is vanquished entirely. Robotics lecturer at Imperial College London, Ravi Vaidyanathan, describes this development as “fascinating,” and is highly keen on pushing this technology forward. He explains th..

  • Related Stories Penske warns of storms' hit to earnings DETROIT -- The two storms that battered parts of Texas and Florida in the past month have given U.S. automakers a reprieve from two problems that have cast a shadow over the price of their shares all year: bulging new-vehicle inventories and an oversupply of off-lease vehicles. Automakers are scheduled to report U.S. sales on Tuesday, Oct. 3, offering the first indications of the demand for vehicles to replace those damaged or destroyed in Houston's record floods and the pummeling much of Florida got from Hurricane Irma. Analysts expect September to show the first monthly increase in vehicle sales this year -- though their previous forecasts of sales gains for the industry in March, May and August proved inaccurate. Any increase likely would be minimal; Edmunds projects a 0.4 percent rise, and Kelley Blue Book expects a 0.7 percent gai..

  • Gamers around the world have not forgotten about Half-Life even after a decade since Half-Life 2: Episode 2 came out. Half-Life 2 received critical acclaim in 2004 which was followed by two episodic plots in 2006 and 2007. Sadly, the franchise never saw a third episode, leaving many in a state of limbo over how the story would continue. Luckily, Half-Life writer Marc Laidlaw on Friday posted what he calls Epistle 3 on his blog that outlines the story for what the third part could have been.Episode 3 was confirmed in 2006 but saw a number of delays in production and eventually never became realised. It has since achieved vapourware status - a product that has been announced for the public but never actually manufacture nor cancelled. But Laidlaw, who wrote both Half-Life 1 and 2, as well as both the episodes of Half-Life 2, posted what looks like a draft for the never-made Episode 3. The plot has been detailed with a few key-names changed and can be found on his personal website (which..
