The FAA has warned against equipping your drone with weapons such as flamethrowers and handguns. But can a nail gun really be considered a weapon — that is, outside of Quake? Let's hope not, because roboticists at the University of Michigan have made a roofing drone that uses that tool to autonomously nail shingles into place.

The U.K.’s offshore wind auctions have driven prices so low that developers could prefer to go merchant rather than take part in the next round two years from now, according to a Wood Mackenzie analyst. Results of the third round of the program, announced Friday morning, awarded 5.5 gigawatts of offshore wind capacity, with prices bottoming out at £39.65 ($50.05) per megawatt-hour. The previous round in 2017 yielded offshore wind prices of £57.50, so Friday's results represent a...

Four years ago, the U.S. solar industry was in the midst of “jockeying” to attach an extension of the Investment Tax Credit — the industry’s “most important public policy” — to whatever legislation lawmakers deemed appropriate. As the credit neared its phaseout and the Obama administration's Clean Power Plan awaited implementation, analysts warned of an “unprecedented boom” through 2016 before solar hit the skids and dropped into a pit of uncertainty through 2019. For those in the industry...

Europe, alongside countries such as Japan, is going through a profound demographic shift: stagnating birth rates and increasing life expectancy mean the proportion of older adults is increasing. It is estimated that by 2050, people above 65 years of age will comprise more than 30% of the population of Great Britain, 35% in Germany, and over 40% in Spain. In addition, this age group is increasingly healthy into old age, meaning that even when they move into a care home, they want stimulating...

The perennially popular open-plan interior appeals for allowing natural light to permeate a house or apartment and for making it feel more spacious. Multifunctional rooms that amalgamated all reception rooms first emerged in the late 19th century. But even radically open-plan spaces – espoused by Frank Lloyd Wright and modernist architects in the 1930s – sometimes incorporated sliding doors. Sliding doors and partitions, of course, bring an almost immeasurable number of practical advantages to...
