This pen-sized device can identify cancerous cells in seconds

Spotting the difference between cancerous tissue and normal tissue is a challenge, even for highly-trained surgeons. The standard method, called Frozen Section Analysis, is slow - taking 30 minutes or more to prepare and interpret. It's called the MasSpec Pen. Those included normal and cancerous tissues from the breast, lung, thyroid and ovary. It allows us to be much more precise in what tissue we remove and what we leave behind.”

Watch 15 seconds of Death Stranding fog because this is what Hideo Kojima does to us

Death Stranding has fog in it. And not just any fog, but height fog.

Speaking of trailers, you might recognize this ruined city scene from the video that introduced Mads Mikkelsen's creepy skeleton-commanding character. Fifteen seconds of fog rolling in isn't much, but we've been in a Death Stranding news drought for pretty much all of 2017, so I'll still take i

The first Tesla Model 3s are now on the road

The first set of Tesla Model 3 electric cars have been given to buyers after a launch event at the company's factory in Fremont, California, though most drivers who preordered a car are still going to have to be patient. However Tesla CEO Elon Musk talked about "six months of manufacturing hell" during the launch event and wouldn't give a fixed date for when other orders will be fulfilled. Anyone ordering a Model 3 now would probably get their car at the end of 2018, he said. As with the Model S

Overwatch ‘Doomfist’ Update brings Loot Box duplicate reduction, Hero tweaks, and more; Details here

After this patch, Loot Boxes will see a drastic reduction in the amount of duplicates you receive when opening a loot box. To compensate for the reduction in duplicates, Blizzard has increased the overall amount of credits each loot box hands out. The defender respawn time then increased in a linear fashion up to a maximum when the attackers held an advantage for 90 seconds. The "attacker advantage timer" instead reverses and counts back down to 0. "Example: If attackers have an advantage for 10

Blizzard Explains Overwatch Respawn Changes

Blizzard dropped the latest patch for Overwatch yesterday that made moderate adjustments to some of the current playable heroes, while adding a brand new one, Doomfist. Most were welcomed changes, but an unexpected tweak to respawn timing ended up throwing players for a loop. The source of the issue stems from the way the change is described in the Overwatch patch notes. The respawn time would increase to maximum when attackers held the advantage for 90 seconds. Changes to respawn timers were bu
