Korg's latest portable PA can be controlled from a smartphone

The companion app allows musicians to wirelessly control the Konnect portable PA, as well as offering ...

When setting up at a gig, PA parameters usually need to be adjusted from one venue to the next. But what might sound great in an empty room can sound rubbish when the crowds (hopefully) gather around the stage. With most systems, making adjustments involves a mixing console, if you have one, or turning knobs on the back of the portable PA itself. With Korg's new Konnect amp, settings can be tweaked using a smartphone app.

Oldest "oxygen oasis" marks Earth's first breath of fresh air

Sediment studies of the Pongola Basin, South Africa, have now found that the area was home ...

Carbon dioxide is the current villain in the story of atmospheric gases, but billions of years ago the bad guy was our friend oxygen. Although it's weird to think that we wouldn't be here today were it not for a global catastrophe, the Great Oxygenation Event actually wiped out most life on Earth at the time. This ramped up about 2.5 billion years ago, but now scientists have discovered signs of the oldest known "oxygen oasis" in South Africa, showing that the process started almost half a billion years earlier.

Not content with editing the genes of living organisms or creating ever-smarter AI, scientists may eventually be able to biologically engineer unique artificial lifeforms from scratch. A new study from Princeton has brought that future a step closer, by confirming that an artificial protein the team developed functions as an enzyme in living bacteria.

Our visual perception of the Solar System has changed a lot since any of use here at New Atlas last sat in a high school science class. Hell, it has changed a lot in the last few years alone. Intrepid space probes keep hurtling through unexplored corridors of space, bringing the planets, their moons and other rocky inhabitants of the system into sharper focus than ever before. Let's take a walk through this new high-res version of our neighborhood of space, where light continues to shine on its darkest and farthest corners.

Parts of the Northern Hemisphere might be shivering through a bitterly cold winter right now, but global temperature averages still soared over the last year. NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) have both released reports stating that 2017 was one of the hottest years since records began in 1880. That continues a long-term trend of rapid warming that doesn't bode well for the future.

Smart robotic implant developed to treat rare birth defect

Oesophageal atresia affects about one in 4,000 babies born in the US and Europe

Oesophageal atresia is a rare genetic disease, in which the upper and lower sections of a baby's oesophagus don't connect – there's a gap between them. Scientists from the University of Sheffield and Boston Children's Hospital have created what may be a better way of treating the condition, in the form of an implantable robotic device.

Self-healing concrete uses fungus to fill cracks

The concrete contains a fungus that produces calcium carbonate when exposed to water and oxygen

If cracks in concrete can be fixed when they're still tiny, then they can't become large cracks that ultimately cause structures such as bridges to collapse. It is with this in mind that various experimental types of self-healing concrete have been developed in recent years. One of the latest utilizes a type of fungus to do the healing.

Matrix Voice lets you talk to your Pi

The Matrix Voice development board is 3.14 inches in diameter and is available now

Holding basic conversations with smartphones and wireless speakers is now fairly commonplace, but tinkerers and makers who want to create their own communicative objects can feel a little restricted by what Amazon, Apple and Google allow them to do. Matrix Labs has come to the rescue with a Raspberry Pi-compatible Internet-of-Things development board with built-in microphones that can bring custom voice recognition smarts to any maker project. And following a successful crowdfunding effort on Indiegogo last year, the Matrix Voice is now on general release.

Bentley puts V8 power in the Bentayga SUV

Bentley is marketing the Bentayga V8 as its most sporting SUV to date

Since being introduced back in 2015, the Bentley Bentayga has been rumbling along over pavement and rock (mostly pavement, we'd think) under the power of a 6.0-liter W12 engine with twin turbos. For those who aren't totally turned off by the idea of a VW Group diesel, there's also a 429-hp triple-charged V8 diesel. Now Bentley's expanding the engine line-up to include a more powerful V8 option, a 542-hp twin-turbo petrol unit.

Rotational 3D printing spins out stronger structures

Harvard engineers have demonstrated a new 3D printing technique that allows users to finely tune the arrangement of short fibers in the printed material. The spinning printer head gives the technique the name "rotational 3D printing," and according to the team the fibers in the ink can be arranged in different orientations at different parts of the printed object, in order to boost its strength, stiffness and resistance to damage.
