The frozen crust of Enceladus, Saturn's sixth largest moon, may be hiding subsurface water and maybe even life. But scientists will first have to bore through the tundra to see what lies beneath and they may rely on the IceMole to do the digging.
The amount of friends you can make at an Oktoberfest celebration is directly proportionate to the number of pint glasses you can carry from the bar to your table. And with these clever stackable pint glasses, it's a lot.
Everyone knows exercise is good for you, and studies have previously shown that it can boost learning and even stave off dementia in later life — though nobody knew why. New research suggests, though, that it's because the brain takes advantage of energy delivery systems just as much as your muscles.
For as ubiquitous a word as "dude" is, etymologists don't actually know how or where it started. But that hasn't stopped them from suggesting a wide array of possibilities.
It turns out that T. rex's physical size might not have been the only thing we underestimated. A new study suggests that the king of apex predators may have also possessed the most powerful jaws in history.
It fires a 18kg metal slug up to 5,600 miles per hour from New York to Philadelphia, slamming into its target with 32 times the force of a "1-ton car being thrust at 100 mph." Railguns aren't sci-fi anymore.
The Windows 8 consumer preview is loaded up with great features. Here are our five favourites.
Windows 8 is a radical departure from anything Microsoft has done before. When you try it for the very first time, it feels a bit like stepping out onto ice. It is so slick as to be slippery. Commands and icons and apps and menus glide on and off screen and things zoom in and out of its Metro interface in a near vertigo-inducing fashion. Getting your feet beneath you is tricky.
Want to try out a taste of Windows 8? Now you can, and it’s feature complete too. As promised, Microsoft’s unveiled the consumer preview of its latest and greatest operating system at MWC. It's made some 100,000 changes to the previously released pre-beta developer preview and has bundles in everything you’re likely to see in the final product.
While it’s not quite the as hot as the insane 2 million SHU Scorpion Pepper, the Naga Chilli Vodka is still criminally hot. In fact, it’s so hot it almost took Philip Schofield off air when he tasted the spicy tipple – it even comes with a health warning.
For me, dry cleaning has always belonged in a category of miracles, along with colour-safe bleach, dry shampoo, and acupuncture. They seem to work, but is it only because we'd like to believe they do? So we decided to take a look past the counter and '80s-style decals to figure out, what is dry cleaning, anyway?
A set of massive Olympic rings began their journey on the Thames yesterday showing that the run up to London 2012 is well and truly in-gear. London’s historic Tower Bridge even had to open to let them through – a sight rarely seen.
Prometheus, the film that started off life as an Alien prequel, but has since morphed into its own beast, is set for a June 1st launch in the UK. This fake TED2023 talk introduces us to Guy Pearce as Peter Weyland talking cyborgs and Gods, giving us a taste of what’s to come. Hell, it’s sci-fi from Ridley Scott and it looks like he’s back to his best – I can’t wait.
Down at our local Handheld Console Society (meets every other week, Wednesday evenings, in the community centre) all the talk of late has been of the new, exciting PS Vita. This is WRONG.
The Raspberry Pi is here at last -- now what can you do with it? We've been champing at the bit waiting for the Raspberry Pi here at Gizmodo UK, but we're please to report that the Raspberry Pi Foundation has managed to ship that mini-marvel of applied Great British Geekery for a shade over 21 quid. If you are lucky enough to grab one in this first round of orders, what exactly can you do with it? Here is our pick of the project ideas that you can try with your Pi.
