Four-legged ‘cheetah’ robot lands running jumps

Developing robots that can respond to our commands is hard enough, but creating a robot that can work autonomously is a whole different ballpark. That is why we should all be impressed when MIT researchers demonstrated that their robo-cheetah managed to run, jump and land autonomously. What they did was

Revolutionary little chip uses sound to detect cancer cells

Sound may become the go-to tool for detecting cancer cells in the future. Researchers from Carnegie Mellon University, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Pennsylvania State University have developed a “microfluidic chip” that can separate white blood cells from circulating tumor cells (CTC) by using sound. The dime-sized chip has

MIT researchers seek to make fashionable spacesuit

Sci-fi flicks' depictions of astronauts usually involve them wearing a skin-tight suit, but the reality is modern day space explorers still wear a ‘bubble-like’ suit that provides just enough pressure for them to survive the vacuum of space. MIT researchers, though, are seeking to inject some fashion sense into the

MIT releases OpenRelativity engine

Last year, MIT Game Labs released a physics simulating game called "A slower speed of light". The game, which is available for free on PC, Linux and Mac, is centered around collecting orbs which lower the speed of light successively until you manage to bring it down to zero. Now,
