This Siemens MRI Scanner Is A Beautiful Machine That Saves Lives

Siemens’ latest MRI machine (Ma­gne­tom Pris­ma Tim+Dot Sys­tem 3 Tes­la) is one of the most powerful, state of the art medical imaging devices in the marketplace.

Full Surface Induction Cooktop Gives You The Freedom To Place Your Pots Anywhere

They might be the future of cooking, but for some reason induction cooktops limit where you can place your pots, like the burners on a traditional stove. Siemens is breaking free of those constraints with a new design that boasts an all-encompassing cooking surface.

If oppressive regimes want to stay oppressive, they need to fear — and wield — technology like a sword covered in napalm. And in most cases, they can’t do that without using outside help. Here are the five worst corporate collaborators in technology.

The Mojave Desert Solar Farm With More Mirrors Than A Lady Gaga Funhouse Of Horrors

As nuclear power continues to fall out of favour, California is making big investments in alternative energy sources to meet rising demand. One of its most ambitious projects will use the Mojave sun to power over a quarter million homes.
