Mark Cuban's hoverboard will hit Kickstarter in April

Mark Cuban threw his hat into the proverbial hoverboard ring in 2015, smack in the middle of the height of the fad. He signed a letter of intent to buy the patent rights to a hoverboard design from Shane Chen, the (somewhat disputed) creator of the hoverboard. But a few months later he backed away. Razor swooped in and bought the rights instead, and in the meantime, Cuban told BuzzFeed that &ldquo...

New Japanese solar cell is closest to reaching maximum efficiency

The Osaka-based Kaneka Corporation has presented a new solar cell that has reached record breaking efficiency of 26.3 percent. Solar energy is the hottest thing in eco-living, and everybody wants in on it. People are installing solar panels in their homes, governments are creating smart grids and companies like Google want to run completely on renewable energy and help people do the same. However,...

NASA’s pop-up robot can tackle tight spots where rovers can’t reach

NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) is pretty much a non-stop source of amazing things, and the latest is the PUFFER, or Pop-Up Flat Folding Robot. The design of the robot is inspired by origami, and folding is its specialty. The robot can tuck in its wheels and flatten out to fit under overhead limits that might prevent a typical rover from gaining entry, meaning it can explore the surfa...

Artificial intelligence is quickly becoming as biased as we are

As we progress in our ability to train machines to think and react like humans, it's becoming clear that not all things are worth passing on. When you perform a Google search for every day queries, you don’t typically expect systemic racism to rear its ugly head. Yet, if you’re a woman searching for a hairstyle, that’s exactly what you might find. In it, you’ll find a h...

Maybe Android tablet apps will be better this year

There’s a new Android tablet you can go and buy, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3. Here’s our review of it, where Jake notes that apps freeze if they’re not in the foreground. Which is a good reminder: Android apps on tablets have never really been very good. They usually end up feeling like stretched-out phone apps. Things have gotten better in the past couple years, but it’s sti...

The Gladius underwater drone will shoot in 4K as it reaches the briny deep

First drones took to the air. Now they take to the sea! The Gladius is basically a remote-controlled submarine with a 4K camera that can dive to 100 meters. I’ve looked at a prototype and it’s quite handsome. A big, yellow double-barreled monster, the beast is controlled via a phone-connected remote and it is semi-tethered, which means it can roll out about 500 meters with the right ge...

VR motion tracking narrows the gap between real and digital

Researchers at Disney have developed a way for the real and virtual worlds to cross over. Two researchers attached small tracking nodes to a tennis ball and tossed it to someone wearing a VR headset — who would not have been able to see the real ball flying at them. The motion-tracking technology predicts the trajectory of the ball and a virtual ball soars towards the VR user, who catches th...

Show Notes: It’s more like an updated iPad Air 1

Before every episode of The Vergecast I sit down, read through a bunch of news, and take a bunch of notes. It’s one of the most enjoyable parts of my week, and I started thinking it might be fun to do every day on the site. So, every day this week I’m sitting down and writing some notes on the news as though I’ll be talking about it later. Are you into this? Am I into this? I don...
