Here is the selection of top-5 most interesting science news we found this month



5. The potholes are not scary

Modern cars will soon have a new system that will allow the suspension to anticipate meeting with irregularities and adapt to the load, making the ride more soft and safe. One of the British automaker has presented a special magnetic sensors that scan the road ahead, and in a split second time give the order to the onboard computer governing condition of the suspension. In addition, the data about potholes found will be sent to a shared server where the warning will be received by all other machines and, of course, road services, which can, if they want, quickly seal the hole.

4. Underwater drone

For a relatively small amount of money - $ 1,000 - you can buy a mini-submarine, which is placed on the nose of a small action camera. Batteries in the device allow about 50 minutes of swimming, the maximum depth of work - 10 meters, control - 30-meter wire that runs to the beach or to the console or to the buoy, which transmits the signal via Wi-Fi.

3. "Transparent" truck

Engineers from South Korea experienced a technology that might help make cars driving safer. They came up to hang tailgate screens on the truck that will show a picture with the front camera. Then it turns out that the truck looks like transparent, and you can see through it.

1. Death on wheels

Researcher Ian Savage from Northwestern University in the US analyzed the global statistics of deaths from 2000 to 2009 and considered a number of deaths occurred surmounted by one way - one billion person-miles. Motorcycles lead with a huge margin. It is followed by (in descending order) cars, ferries, trains, subways, buses, and last aircraft. The risk of dying, traveling by plane, is 100 times less than a car, and 3000 times smaller than a motorcycle.
