5G Devices Are about to Change Your Life

You’re probably used to the periodic upgrades in our cell-phone networks. There was 2G, which came along in 1991, replaced with 3G in 2001, followed by 4G in 2009. Now we’re hearing about the coming of 5G. But 5G is a much bigger leap than what’s come before. Qualcomm’s Web site, in fact, calls it “as transformative as the automobile and electricity.” (One of the world’s leading makers of… → Read More

The real story behind MoviePass's location-tracking controversy

MoviePass, a company only seven months old, seems to be on fire. It's like Netflix (NFLX), but for movie theaters: You pay $10 a month, and go out to see all the movies you want. (3D and Imax not included.) That deal is so good, they've already signed up close to 2.5 million subscribers, who already buy 6% of all movie tickets in the U.S.; the company expects to double those numbers by summer.… → Read More

Google Clips uses AI to snap pictures of your kids and pets — sort of

In its day, Google has produced some truly bizarre hardware products. Well, don’t look now, but here comes the company’s weirdest hardware yet: Google Clips ($250). It’s a tiny, thin camera, about the size of two stacked Triscuits, that combines elements of a spy camera, GoPro camera, and cellphone → Read More

The tiny, 4K Mavic Air crushes other DJI drones

It’s so small and smart, it makes you wonder why anyone would buy the 2016 Mavic Pro, which costs $200 more — but it’s not what you’d call perfect. The new Mavic Pro is incredibly tiny, stable, and lightweight. The 15-ounce Mavic Air is small — and that’s huge. → Read More

How Good Is Star Trek 's Record at Predicting the Future of Tech?

In this month’s Scientific American column, I wrote about Hollywood’s depiction of personal technology in the future. Lots of it is pure wishful-thinking silliness. But sometimes, you can sense the thought that’s been put into these props, and inventors eventually create them for use in the real world. “Star Trek,” of course, was one of the most influential sci-fi shows of all time. Even the… → Read More

How Well Do Movies Predict Our Tech Future?

Everyone judges the plausibility of a movie through a different lens. If you're a doctor, you may think: “That character would not have survived that fall.” If you're an astrophysicist: “That's not how black holes work.” And if you're me, it's more like: “What a dumb concept of future personal technology!” It makes me crazy when sci-fi moviemakers dream up stuff with no basis in science.
