Could This Hydrogen-Powered Drone Be the Future of Transportation?

The idea of scaling up a drone to carry passengers isn’t new. Who among us hasn’t gazed up at a DJI Phantom and wished that we could be up there with it, soaring amongst the birds and transmitting data back to China? Well, batteries are the obstacle standing between us and our glorious LaunchPad McQuack future. Current battery technology would offer limited range in a human-scale electric vertical takeoff and landing vehicle, even when burdened with only the skinniest of rich people on their way to Montauk.

Apple’s Touch ID could be returning to the iPhone in 2020, but it won’t be quite as you remember it, a new report has revealed.

For the most part, iPhones look kind of the same, with similar colours and the changes mostly resulting from how thin they are or how large the screen is. Usually, we’re stuck with white, silver, or black. It’s fine for most of us, but a little variety goes a long way – and would save us from having…
