    'New' DeLorean DMC-12 models could finally be on the way

    DeLorean is perhaps the most famed extinct car company on the face of this Earth, largely thanks to its starring role in Back to the Future... and probably because of the way the company came crashing down. But, from the ashes came hope. Almost four years ago, DeLorean Motor Company made a splash and said it planned to build "new" DMC-12 models from new and old stock.

    Apple May Release Smart Keyboard With Scissor Switches Alongside 2020 iPads

A paywalled preview of the report vaguely claims that "Apple's next-generation iPad series reportedly will feature a scissor switch keyboard," which is presumably referring to an accessory rather than a built-in hardware keyboard.

    Humans Aren’t Inherently Destroying the Planet — Capitalism Is

    One of the biggest ironies of the right-wing trope accusing socialists of wanting “free stuff” is that in reality, the entire capitalist economy would immediately collapse if it couldn’t continue to rely on free stuff. Without free or artificially cheap access to things like natural resources, care work, labor and a whole array of other elements, capitalism could not stay afloat. In fact, the only way that capitalism was ever able to even emerge was through a process of “primitive accumu...

    The Universe Might Be a Giant Loop

    Everything we think we know about the shape of the universe could be wrong. Instead of being flat like a bedsheet, our universe may be curved, like a massive, inflated balloon, according to a new study. That's the upshot of a new paper published today (Nov. 4) in the journal Nature Astronomy, which looks at data from the cosmic microwave background (CMB), the faint echo of the Big Bang.

    Alienated, Alone And Angry: What the Digital Revolution Really Did To Us

    In April 1997, Wired magazine published a feature with the grand and regrettable title “Birth of a Digital Nation.” It was a good time to make sweeping, sunny pronouncements about the future of the United States and technology. The US stood alone astride the globe. Its stock market was booming. Microsoft was about to become the world’s most valuable company, a first for a tech firm. A computer built by IBM was about to beat the world chess champion at his own game.

    These Breakthroughs Made the 2010s the Decade of the Brain

    I rarely use the words transformative or breakthrough for neuroscience findings. The brain is complex, noisy, chaotic, and often unpredictable. One intriguing result under one condition may soon fail for a majority of others. What’s more, paradigm-shifting research trends often require revolutionary tools. When we’re lucky, those come once a decade.

    Why the quantum internet should be built in space

    The best way to distribute quantum entanglement around the globe is via a massive constellation of orbiting satellites, physicists say. The quantum internet is a dream that many technologists have expounded in recent years.

    Mind Control for the Masses—No Implant Needed

    When Sid Kouider showed up at Slush, the annual startup showcase in Helsinki, wearing an ascot cap and a device he claimed would usher in a new era of technological mind control, no one thought he was crazy. No, he was merely joining the long line of entrepreneurs (see: Elon Musk, Mark Zuckerberg) who believe that we will one day manage our machines with our thoughts.
