( -- Last Wednesday, the Ad Astra Rocket Company tested what is currently the most powerful plasma rocket in the world.

Plasma Rocket Could Travel to Mars in 39 Days

As the Webster, Texas, company announced, the VASIMR VX-200 engine ran at 201 kilowatts in a vacuum chamber, passing the 200-kilowatt mark for the first time. The test also marks the first time that a small-scale prototype of the company's VASIMR (Variable Specific Impulse Magnetoplasma Rocket) rocket engine has been demonstrated at full power. "It's the most powerful plasma rocket in the world right now," says Franklin Chang-Diaz, former NASA astronaut and CEO of Ad Astra. The company has signed an agreement with NASA to test a 200-kilowatt VASIMR engine on the International Space Station (ISS) in 2013. Wind turbine creates water from thin air.

The turbine can produce up to 1,000 liters of drinking water every day, according to Eole Water.

Wind turbine creates water from thin air

French company, Eole Water, has invented a wind turbine that can generate water from humid air. The technology offers a clean and sustainable way to provide water to rural communities, says Eole Water director of marketing, Thibault Janin. A view inside the technological processes of the Eole Water turbine. Descriptive Camera. The Descriptive Camera works a lot like a regular camera—point it at subject and press the shutter button to capture the scene.

However, instead of producing an image, this prototype uses crowd sourcing to output a text description of the scene. Modern digital cameras capture gobs of "parsable" metadata about photos such as the camera's settings, the location of the photo, the date, and time, but they don't output any information about the content of the photo. The Descriptive Camera only outputs the metadata about the content. As we amass an incredible amount of photos, it becomes increasingly difficult to manage our collections. Imagine if descriptive metadata about each photo could be appended to the image on the fly—information about who is in each photo, what they're doing, and their environment could become incredibly useful in being able to search, filter, and cross-reference our photo collections.

Hack Attack: Turn your $60 router into a $600 router. Which VPN Providers Really Take Anonymity Seriously? This Internet provider pledges to put your privacy first. Always. Nicholas Merrill is planning to revolutionize online privacy with a concept as simple as it is ingenious: a telecommunications provider designed from its inception to shield its customers from surveillance.

This Internet provider pledges to put your privacy first. Always.

Merrill, 39, who previously ran a New York-based Internet provider, told CNET that he's raising funds to launch a national "non-profit telecommunications provider dedicated to privacy, using ubiquitous encryption" that will sell mobile phone service and, for as little as $20 a month, Internet connectivity.

Epson's Android-Powered Glasses Are Out of Sight. Epson (yes the guys that make printers), has invented what could be the coolest headwear since Geordi La Forge's VISOR on Star Trek: The Next Generation. The Epson Moverio BT-100 is a wearable transparent display that runs on Android. The Moverio uses micro-projectors to project the equivalent of an 80-inch screen into your eyes, and is capable of displaying both 2D and 3D content. You can even load apps onto it, thanks to the device being able to connect to Wi-Fi and having access to the Amazon App Store. The glasses are slightly larger than normal sunglasses, and have an attached control pad for navigating about the Android interface. The control pad has a D-Pad and a touchpad, as well as a microSD card slot for additional storage. Technology - StumbleUpon.
