July 2014 issue highlights:

• When Inhumans Attack—Whether it’s alien robots in Transformers or human-animal hybrids in Jupiter Ascending, humans are facing plenty of nemeses in the movies. We asked scientists if these beings could ever really exist.

• Scan Artist—Repo men collect 70 million license-plate scans each month using digital recognition equipment. One of them could even be yours.

• Core Truths—Genetically modified foods have become a controversial topic. We take a look at the science behind common claims.

• A Beautiful Mind—Ariel Garten wants to give people the tools to analyze brain activity, then alter it for greater focus and calm.

• The Whole Brilliant Enterprise—We assembled a graphic that explores the history of NASA’s most notable themes based on years of the space agency’s published annual reports.

• Now—A speaker that always knows your favorite songs, wearable gadgets that blend in with your outfit, the physics of a better glass of beer, and more!

• Next—Why selling space is bad for science, an interview with the director of Google’s Project Loon, where wind energy comes from in the U.S., and more!

• Manual—How to build a musical tip jar, a DIY spacesuit for suborbital launches, welding with car batteries, and more!

. . . and more!
