UT Austin researchers create an ultrathin invisibility cloak

 Bulky devices are an obvious flaw for those interested in Harry Potter-style applications.

ver2 electric bike

Industrial designer Yuji Fujimura has developed a unique concept bike utilizing a lithium-ion battery. This means that the bike is  rechargeable as well as reliable for long term use. The ver2 battery will provide power to the motor, so that this bike can be used as an electric bike or electric motor cycle. When ver2 is in motor cycle mode, both pedals will set themselves at the lowest position. (Pics)
