Nissan Leaf Piloted Drive 1.0 Concept Points To Nissan's Autonomous Future

The Teatro For Dayz concept is meant to simulate a small, battery powered mobile device on wheels which can change certain features depending on what "mood" you're in. Nissan is keen to stress that the future doesn't have to be dreary, at least for drivers, as the driver will be able to choose whether he or she wants to do the driving or whether they'd prefer to pass the task over to the vehicle.

Jupiter Bumped Giant Planet Out Of Solar System

Now, the idea that our solar system might have actually been home to a fifth gas giant was originally proposed in 2011. But the question remained: if it did exist, how did it get pushed out? Study hinted the solar system initially had a giant planet "with the mass comparable to that of Uranus and Neptune, and which was ejected to interstellar space" by another planet.

New silicon phototransistor to speed up digital cameras

Scientists at the University of Wisconsin have just made a breakthrough: they've created the fastest flexible silicon phototransistor ever, and it could massively change the digital camera industry. The metal layer and electrodes go about as reflectors and enhance light integration without the requirement for an outer enhancer. In a digital camera, this electric charge creates a digital image (through a bunch of 1s and 0s), according to the researchers.

Rosetta probe Data Suggests There is Oxygen on Comet 67P

While we did find  out that a comet spits oxygen in space, there is little proof that others might be doing the exact same thing. Previously, oxygen's presence was ruled out on comets because it blends easily with other elements, and scientists "never thought that oxygen could "survive" for billions of years" in a pristine state, said Altwegg.
