If you were compiling a list of the world’s sportiest front wheel drive cars, you’d no doubt start with names like the MINI Cooper S, Volkswagen Golf GTI or Scirocco R, Ford Focus RS500 or Taurus SHO, Honda Integra Type R, Vauxhall/Opel Vectra or Astra VXR models, Peugeot 205 GTi, Alfa Romeo 147 or 156 GTA models, Nissan Altima Coupe, Mazda speed3, one of the Renaultsport Meganes, or if you’re a little older perhaps the Lotus Elan, Lancia Fulvia, Fiat Abarth or Volvo S80 T6. Now there’s a new name to put at the very top of that list and several new contenders gunning for the crown.  Read More
Gizmag goes hands-on with the Lomography New Petzval Art Lens
The Lomography New Petzval Art Lens is not your typical new camera lens. It's a brass-barreled manual focus prime, with no electronic contacts, and aperture that's controlled by dropping a selection of little plates into the barrel. After being funded on Kickstarter, the quirky lens has now made its way into the real world, and Gizmag recently got a chance to go hands-on with one.  Read More
Example of levitating and heating coil assemblies (Image: ESA)
Astronauts, get your welding goggles on – the space station is going into the foundry business. The International Space Station is set to do a spot of industrial research this June, when ESA’s Materials Science Laboratory-Electromagnetic Levitator heads for the station aboard Europe's’ ATV-5 Georges LemaĆ®tre unmanned space freighter as part of a program to study the casting of alloys in a weightless environment.  Read More
Gizmag compares the features and specs of the Samsung Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Note 3

Combined with Google Glass, the Ubic system could be used to thwart PIN thieves
While many of us worry about the ways in which Google Glass could be used to infringe on peoples' privacy, scientists at Saarland University in Germany have instead developed a process in which the high-tech eyewear could ensure privacy. More specifically, it would keep shady characters from obtaining your PIN while you used an automated teller.  Read More
Samples of Fraunhofer's wood foam insulation
Insulating your home may help the environment by lowering your energy usage, but unfortunately the petroleum-based foam that's typically used as insulation isn't all that eco-friendly itself. Researchers at Germany's Fraunhofer Institute for Wood Research, however, have developed a reportedly greener alternative that they claim works just as well – it's foam made from wood.  Read More
The GoPhone lets an iPhone 5/5s and a GoPro Hero 'be as one'  Despite the incredible popularity of the GoPro Hero actioncam, it still lacks one very basic feature – a viewfinder. You can use your smartphone as a remote viewfinder via the camera's Wi-Fi signal, but for users who want to get hand-held shots, that involves holding onto two devices. That's where the GoPhone comes into the picture.  Read More
