Researchers have found that by folding paper-based Li-Ion batteries, the energy density of the cells can be increased 14 times.
For the first time, an experimental fusion reactor in the US has broken even, providing more energy than is absorbed by the fuel.
Scientists will soon be able to completely design and print out simple, synthetic lifeforms on Earth using biological 3-d printers, a scientist from the Human Genome Project has claimed.
A ‘forcefield’ technology that uses nothing but sound to create the feeling of interaction with solid objects in thin air has been developed by a team at Bristol University in the UK.
Researchers at Disney have developed a way for people to ‘feel’ textures on touchscreen surfaces.
A new malaria vaccine may soon be hitting developing countries, where it cut cut cases among children by as much as 50%
The FDA has approved a new device which will help some sight-impaired people restore part of their vision.
A 10-year, £1 billion (€1.2 billion/$1.6 billion) project to completely revolutionize the way we understand and interpret the human brain began today in Switzerland.
On February 15th 2013, over 1,000 people were injured when a meteor exploded over the Russian city of Chelyabinsk. Scientists are now saying that ‘the odds of asteroid impacts are much higher than people realize.’
