About The Tech Herald

Feb 5 2008, 17:22

The Tech Herald was launched early February, 2008.

The site came about after some of the editors and administration staff on the entertainment site Monsters and Critics decided they really wanted to be involved in a site covering science and technology beyond the small tech section on M&C.

The Herald sets out to publish accurate and timely news, with engaging copy.  The site also does a little investigative reporting and will later perform reviews and more regular features. The team also tests reported exploits and bugs to see if they are more than just theoretical.

Please feel free to contact us should you have any questions, corrections or suggestions.

We hope you enjoy reading the site.

Regards
TTH Team

What This Tortoise Did To Help Its Upside-down Friend Is Awesome

This tortoise at a zoo in Taiwan was in a bit of a sticky situation, after ending upside down on its shell with no way to right itself. But its best friend had other ideas — and rushed (well, crawled slowly) to the rescue. Incredibly, the helper tortoise seemed to know exactly what it was doing and wedged itself underneath the upturned animal’s shell. With a few short nudges,  it then managed to turn the stricken tortoise back on its feet. In the background you can hear children cheer with joy when the tortoises triumph over adversity. The person who took the video, AuDi Yu, said he filmed the amazing act […]

This Guy Started The Most Epic Subway Singalong Ever

In a big city like London the daily commute or late-night trip home on the subway can be a chore at best and a struggle at worst. A singer called Neil Francis decided to treat his fellow travellers to a rousing version of Erasure’s tune A Little Respect — most of them having just come from a concert by the 80s duo. But what he wasn’t expecting was for the ENTIRE platform to join in. Wow, the acoustics in the tunnels are awesome. Someone should suggest they hold concerts down there.  Just make sure the trains aren’t running. Filmed by Jon Trapnell via DayVideoEdits.

Remember Laser Guns From Sci-Fi Films? They’re A Real Thing Now

A new video released by the Office of Naval Research shows their latest Laser Weapon System (LaWS) being tested aboard the USS Ponse while the ship was in the Persian Gulf. The laser allows for incredibly precise targeting, and in the example include a drone and two tiny points on board smaller vessels. It’s amazing to think that there is no actual bullet being fired, but that the target is still completely destroyed. Naval officers prepare to target a small boat from inside the USS Ponse. They are able to fix the laser gun on the tiniest targets. Here they are aiming at the tiny white dot. And when the moment is right, the laser […]

Ever Wondered What Would Happen If You Stepped On Lava?

Ever thought what would happen if you tried to walk on lava? Well, now we know — thanks to Alex Rivest, a tour guide in Hawaii, who placed his boot on some lava to show how vicious the molten rock really is. When lava exits the vents at the Kilauea volcano it comes out at an incredible 700°C to 1,200°C (1,292°F to 2,192 °F). And when you step on it, breaking the already solidifying surface, the rush of oxygen makes a momentary mini-eruption as the soaring temperatures are fed by the air. The viscous surface then slowly expands again to fill the dent. Another interesting snippet of information about lava is that falling […]
