the IFA 2016 this drone from the Powervision can be folded together into the shape of a large egg.

the M3 got the clamp on it at the IFA trade fair in Berlin.

The Finnish manufacturer Powervision challenge the limits properly when it comes to drönardesign.

When we first caught sight of this flying egg, we became very curious, and it soon turned out that not only was the design of the new Poweregg that is smart.

If you ever had to carry a slightly larger drone/quadrocopter do you know how awkward it can be.

If you do not have a custom-made box, or original packing materials into the device, it is easy to damage the machine when you carry it.

A kryptografiprofessor wandering around on a Romanian flea market thought his eyes when he caught sight of what purported to be an old typewriter that cost 100 euros, about 950 sek.

It turned out to be a German krypteringsmaskin, known as Enigma, from world war ii, more specifically, from 1941.

He sold it later via the Romanian auction house Artmark for 45 000 euro, almost 429 000 sek, writes The Register.

the Enigma has not at least become famous as krypteringsmaskinen as the well-known information technology pioneer Alan Turing was snapped during the second world war.

the Copy kryptografiprofessorn did a great hack on should have come to Romania because the country was allied with Germany during the second world war.

in 1944, the allies get their hands on it.

While the Nintendo Switch is a great portable gaming console, it is by no means perfect.

Among its list of flaws is the fact that it’s really just that, a portable gaming console.

Despite hardware and software capabilities, Nintendo has limited the Switch’s feature set to that particular use case.

Wouldn’t it be great if the Switch could also be a great portable multimedia player?

If Best Buy’s accidental project listing is correct, that will be the case soon.

At least if all you do is watch on Netflix and YouTube.

It's a scenic view from Lapland.

There's a faint glow on the dark horizon and a quaint snow-covered cottage.

Then it all lights up like daytime.

Off to the side, a streak of light appears.

The footage comes from an aurora borealis livecam that coincidentally caught sight of a blazing meteor.

The livecam is hosted by Finland's Aurora Service Tours, a tour company specializing in trips to see the northern lights.

Once upon a time, there was a hungry fox that was looking for something to eat.

No matter how hard he tried, the fox could not find food.

Suddenly he caught sight of a big tree with a hole in it.Inside the hole was a package.

The hungry fox immediately thought that there might be food in it, and became very happy.

He jumped into the hole.

When he opened the package, he saw slices of bread, meat and fruit in it!An old woodcutter had placed the food in the tree trunk before he began to cut down trees in the forest.

Here's an X-class that has nothing to do with mutants...

An X-class solar flare is the most intense kind you can get.

NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory caught sight of two such flares on Wednesday morning and one of them is a real doozy.

The NASA GIF shows the flares in quick succession and the difference in size is apparent.

The first flare is an X2.2, while the second is much more intense and rates as an X9.3.

Higher numbers correspond to stronger flares.

Mars is a planet of many textures.

Images taken by orbiting spacecraft show us the depth and breadth of the Red Planet's funky landscapes that evoke thoughts of shag carpets and spiders.

So anybody up for some Mars ice cream?

The European Space Agency and Roscosmos ExoMars Trace Gas Orbiter caught sight of a frosty-looking section of ground in the region of the planet's north pole.

The spacecraft's CaSSIS camera snapped a squiggly collection of dunes with darker patches showing through.

It looks like a close-up of cookies-and-cream ice cream.

NASA's New Horizons spacecraft visited Pluto in 2015 and gave us Earthlings a spectacular look at the dwarf planet.

You head deep into the mysterious Kuiper Belt and chase down an even more distant space object.

NASA revealed Tuesday that New Horizons has spotted its next target, 2014 MU69, now known by the catchier nickname Ultima Thule.

The spacecraft's telescopic Long Range Reconnaissance Imager caught sight of Ultima from over 100 million miles (160 million kilometers) away.

It's full of small icy objects and comets.

New Horizon's field of vision is packed with stars, which makes its ability to locate Ultima Thule all the more remarkable.

The Gemini North Observatory has a unique perspective on the frightening activity happening at the Kiluaea volcano.

Gemini sits high up on Hawaii's Mauna Kea mountain and has a camera pointed in the direction of Kiluaea.

That camera caught sight of the distant eruption and generated a spectacular time-lapse video.

The footage comes from May 21 and 22 and shows stars fleeing across the night sky while the clouds glow as if lit by a giant flashlight from below.

The radiating light comes from lava-spewing fissures generated by Kilauea's continued eruption.

The time-lapse effect makes the clouds look like a roiling sea.

We may not be able to hear anything from NASA's Opportunity rover, but we can still see it.

The space agency's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter caught sight of the rover from far above the red planet.

Opportunity has been out of contact with Earth since June 10 when a global dust storm cut off its solar power.

The rover is sitting quietly in an area called Perseverance Valley.

The MRO used its HiRise camera to find the rover, which looks like a tiny spot, on Sept. 20.

The MRO was about 166 miles (267 kilometers) above the surface of Mars at the time.

SpaceX is building two orbital prototypes for its next-gen Starship spacecraft, one in Texas and one in Florida.

SpaceX founder Elon Musk shared some intriguing photos from the Texas build site on Monday.

"Very proud of progress SpaceX team has made!"

Musk tweeted along with several photos showing the rotation of a large circular bulkhead ahead of its installation.

SpaceX watchers already caught sight of another bulkhead being lowered into the cylindrical body of the stainless-steel vehicle in late July.

SpaceX has already built a "hopper" prototype for takeoff and landing tests, but the orbital versions are meant to reach space.

It's tough to spot a tiny spacecraft against the vastness of space, but the Large Binocular Telescope Observatory in Arizona pulled off the feat when it caught sight of NASA's Osiris-Rex.

What makes this especially impressive is the asteroid-studying spacecraft launched a year ago and was a whopping 7 million miles (12 million kilometers) away from Earth at the time.

NASA shared a GIF of Osiris-Rex on Friday made from images captured on Sept. 2.

It looks like some sort of weird television static.

A red box marks the blurry spacecraft's location.

Black and white are reversed to help us see the spacecraft better.

Earth doesn't have an exclusive on auroras, the scenic light shows caused by charged particles interacting with gases in the atmosphere.

The Cassini spacecraft recently caught sight of Saturn's southern lights, and NASA created a movie sequence showing the auroras in action.

The video looks a bit like snow falling upward, but what you're seeing are stars passing in the background.

The dark area is the night side of Saturn.

The auroras are the ghostly looking cloudy elements moving from left to right over the darkness of the planet.

"Random bright specks and streaks appearing from frame to frame are due to charged particles and cosmic rays hitting the camera detector," NASA said.
