Land fight could give tens of thousands of US Native Americans rights in Canada

A land battle in British Columbia could afford indigenous people residing in the United States rights in Canada. Rick Desautel, an America citizen who identifies as Sinixt, shot an elk in Canada 40 miles north of the border, and the British Columbian government decided to bring charges to court.

UNStudios striking Paris cultural center contorts for optimal daylight

UNStudio has unveiled competition-winning designs for Centre Culturel DédiéAu 7è Art, a new cultural center that eschews traditional building forms for a twisted, sculptural shape. The eye-catching building, which comprises a cinema and “cultural laboratory,” will become part of EuropaCity, a £2.74 billion tourism and leisure district masterplanned by BIG. Terraced green roofs will top UNStudio’s design to provide thermal insulation, while visually complementing BIG’s “rolling hills”…

Love films? Now you have the opportunity to “lock” real movie scenes into your temples with eyeglasses that feature pieces of actual vintage footage from 16 and 35mm films.

Researchers charge phone from across the room using freakin’ laser beams

Let’s face it, charging our smartphones hasn’t evolved much over the years. You plug your phone in, or place it on a precise place on a wireless charging pad, and then you wait. But the genius researchers over at the University of Washington have developed a way to charge your phone from across the room using freakin’ laser beams!

Researchers put a power cell on the back of a smartphone, which can charge up the phone using the energy from the laser, and it can do it just as quickly as a direct…
