In a building with a striking resemblance to a shipping container lies one of ASU's least known resources: TechShop, a cooperative workspace that houses a vast array of machining and engineering equipment that is absolutely free for ASU students to use.

Chances are, anyone who’s spent the better part of an hour wandering around Tempe has seen campus shuttles plastered with decals lauding ASU's achievements in innovation. Chances are, they don't have a real idea of how the University earned this award.
Delicacy doesn't come to mind when describing war, but when balancing military technology and ethical responsibility, meticulous planning is key.
Tucked away in the far corner of Changemaker Central, a small studio in the Memorial Union dedicated to social change and entrepreneurship, Adrian Gillette stood surrounded by an audience of ASU students seated in office chairs.
In most circumstances, retiring at 25 would be quite early. For the Hubble Space Telescope, 25 is just in time to be replaced with new technology and usher in the beginning of a new era in space optics.
Past the oscillating shadows of its large fans and the polarizing yellow-and-black-striped paint job, the ISTB2 building shelters one of ASU's most expensive pieces of equipment.
Students done letting that Xbox Kinect in the far corner of their dorm rooms collect dust might just want to donate it to a new research project at the Del E. Webb School of Construction.
Earlier this year, a reported 58,000 U.S. bridges — a little over 10 percent of the country's total — were found to be 'structurally deficient.'
Just two years after inking a deal with Spanish solar energy company AORA, ASU's Solar Tulip project has been cancelled.
The Arizona Science Center's Create lab is only on the cusp of its first birthday, but its founders believe it has already created a place for itself in the community.
ASU's latest art exhibit, the New Animist, sits just below the scalding concrete surface of Mill Avenue in a well-ventilated gallery in the university's climate-controlled art museum — a fitting time and place for an exhibit about climate change.
The ground beneath Intel is starting to give. The once solid foundation of PC sales, which supported the chip maker for the last several decades, is beginning to show cracks and Intel can't afford to fill them with upgraded processors. The fact is that PC market saturation occurred about five years ago, and Intel is only beginning to see the effects. Much like the other Goliath of the aging PC industry (aka Microsoft), Intel is going to need to broaden its horizons. This means 12,000 layoffs in the short term, which caused quite the uproar in Arizona, but what does the new strategy really mean for its future in Arizona?
Bruce Arians just shoved his foot pretty far in his mouth. During a clinic for high school football on April 8, the Cardinals head coach basically embodied the football-trainer stereotype to a tee, complete with sexism and a gung-ho attitude. After acknowledging that athletes are beginning to question involvement with football for health reasons, Arians claimed, "We have to make sure that moms get the message because that’s who’s afraid of our game right now. It’s not dads, it’s moms. Our job is to make sure the game is safe, at all levels," according to 12 News.
It looks like ASU is going to start taking a more active role in local legislation. As of late March, a group of undergraduate students published a brand new website which is doing something pretty innovative. The website, named azleglive.info, works based on a platform called Tableau, compiling information "obtained by scraping the data from the state's existing website about the legislature" into a series of convenient and easily-interpreted charts. If the internet continues to offer innovative political analysis like this, we might see a new demographic take over politics.
State Bill 1516 doesn't make for a gripping read. Line upon line of dry technical text serve to refine Arizona's campaign funding procedure. It’s got a bit of everything, including limits on donation quantity and fund transfers, nearly indistinguishable from the rest of the quotidian scraps of paper that slide across the senate's faux wood desks. The bill was first drafted in February (Febru-any for you Subway fans) of this year, and just finally glimpsed the light of day on March 8. During that time the bill underwent significant amendments, the nature of which is generating tension across the aisle.
It's easy to imagine. It's springtime. Your eyes are red, and you look like death. The cop smells weed and claims you’re high, you ineffectively counter, yada-yada. Surely a test would prove your innocence, right?
Picture Yahoo as a runaway train headed straight for a thousand foot deep gully. The tracks lead off the edge into a swirling abyss of digital irrelevancy. Now, picture Marissa Mayer, Yahoo’s CEO for the past four turbulent years, as the conductor, moving about hurriedly, sweating madly. Her hands practically fly across the levers and knobs, doing everything in her power to stop the train from careening over the cliff. Gears grind, sparks fly, but the train fares much better than it would at the bottom of the cliff.
