OCZ's new device is definitely worth a mention (being shown at CES), though with certainty will be an expensive one once you add in the drives for it.  Anandtech.com is showing us how OCZ has united four Indilinx Everest controllers and put them in conjunction with custom OCZ FPGAs with a VCA (virtualized controller architecture) format.  The result is the Chiron.

This enclosure will hold a maximum of 4TB and in a 3.5" form factor. It features transfer rates as high as 560 MB/s and over 100,000 4k IOPS.

Space.com is showcasing this story of G-Form, a company that features extreme electronics cases, and their video of an iPad falling from the edge of space, in this case around 100,000 feet (30,480 meters) before the weather balloon they used, burst.  The iPad stayed on the whole time and remained functional after its journey.

Columbia University researchers Ang Cui and Salvatore Stolfo have discovered a vulnerability in HP LaserJet printers that could result in hackers remotely controlling it.

Hackers could then launch cyber attacks and steal information being printed.  In particular they could program the internal components to overload until a fire occurs.

However, more recently HP has released a statement, saying the information in this study is not accurate.  They argue that there is a thermal switch in all of its LaserJet printers and it cannot be remotely disabled.  They also have said that printers made since 2009 require digital signatures on updates.  HP insists that the researchers must have had an older printer, though Stolfo and Cui say it was purchased in September from a major retailer.

Despite, this, HP has conceded there is a security issue on some LaserJet printers where a firmware could be applied remotely, but only from a PC on the same network.  They also state that a bogus update forced via a print job would only work on a Linux based OS or a Mac.  HP will fix the issue, with.. irony here.. a Firmware Update.

human controlled multicopter

It was reported, that the worlds first manned flight of an electric multicopter has occurred.  This could have been quite messy for the human aboard this device if a malfunction had occurred.  German engineers at e-volo have created this device.  This device uses many mini helicopters to lift the passenger upwards into the sky.  Click the Read More to see the video.

This video was found on youtube and is quite intriguing.  Operated via remote control, this robot does quite well cruising around on his mini bike.
