Falcons have been trained for hunting and sport for thousands of years across the Middle East. Now falconers in the United Arab Emirates are turning to drone technology as a new tool to teach their birds to fly increasingly higher and hunt more efficiently. Can technology teach old birds new tricks? Falcons hunt by scanning the ground below them using a cone-like field of vision; imagine a spotlight scanning the earth - the bird's-eye-view is limited to what's moving within that beam. The area w
We’ve all heard of the benefits of solar power and the emergence of innovative new projects that are making use of the sun’s energy. But one is soaring above the rest of them - a solar-powered plane attempting to fly round the world! Solar Impulse 2 took off from Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates early on Monday morning and has already completed its first 250-mile (400km) leg, landing in the Omani capital of Muscat. It’s now on its way to India. Two pilots are attempting the potentially reco
Iranian-American comedian Maz Jobrani takes to the TEDxSummit stage in Doha, Qatar to take on serious issues in the Middle East -- like how many kisses to give when saying “Hi,” and what not to say on an American airplane.
Abu Dhabi police unveiled their latest acquisition cop car, a Rolls Royce Phantom tricked out in purple and white, the colors of the state police force. It's the newest addition to the fleet of United Arab Emirates (UAE) police supercars. The car debuted at Yas Mall on Sunday and marked the opening of Gulf Cooperation Council Traffic Week in Abu Dhabi. The slogan for this year's traffic safety campaign is, ‘Your Choice Determines Your Destiny’. So what does this car choice tell us about Abu Dha
Jordan’s Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources announced a new initiative that will convert all 6,000 of the kingdom’s mosques to solar generated power beginning this year. It’s part of a five-year program to decrease the nation's reliance on crude oil while diversifying its energy portfolio to include more renewable energy sources, such as wind and solar power. Mosques are major electricity consumers as five prayer times throughout the day keep their doors open predawn to well after sundown.
Oryx, giraffes and cheetahs - species once facing regional extinction - are making a robust reappearance on a desert island off the coast of Abu Dhabi. Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan al-Nahayan, founder of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), created the remote nature reserve in 1971. Forty years after Sir Bani Yas island received its first 'imported' animals, over 13,000 protected creatures now call the “Arabian Ark” home. Twenty-five species of mammals, including striped hyenas, desert lynx, and Arabian
Baku-based artist Faig Ahmed combines the beauty of traditional Azerbaijani rugs with technological glitches in his on-going series of contemporary carpets. Using the artistic qualities of these tapestries, he disassembles their conventional structure to rearrange and fragment it. The result often resembles a rug that doubles as a fascinating modern sculpture. Many of Ahmed’s carpets have “flaws” in their designs that create the illusion of a printing or rendering error. If you’ve ever seen a vi
