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.
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.’
Even with years of training and the nickname of “space troops”, Russia’s Aerospace Defence Troops would lack the ability to handle an extra-terrestrial attack, a Russian defense official has warned.
The recent ‘shutdown’ of all none-essential United States government departments and services has left NASA almost completely nonfunctional.
A new study has found that pollutants found in diesel fumes may affect the honey bee’s ability to recognize floral odors.
MIT researchers have discovered that water droplets ejected from a hydrophobic surface carry an electric charge. The finding is unexpected and may lead to more efficient power plants, as well as entirely new methods of generating power from the atmosphere.
The ability to grow food in space is a requirement for the success of long-term and deep space missions.
A joint research project made by three research and academic institutions in Japan have finally given positive confirmation that next-generation magnetic storage devices can finally be designed and made using skyrmions.
A collaborative effort between Japan Robotech, Kokushikan University, and the Waseda University Faculty of Science and Engineering demonstrates to us how a simple smartphone-based “wheeled” robot could conquer any kind of terrain.
A new method for measuring the spin of supermassive black holes could help astronomers better understand how the black holes drive the growth of galaxies.
A new material with the same thermal conductivity as diamond has been discovered, and may revolutionize passive cooling in electronics.
A new ceramic coating around nuclear fuel rods may prevent the chemical reaction that caused a build-up of hydrogen in the Fukushima nuclear reactor and later led to an explosion and spreading of nuclear material.
A new digital tooth being developed in Taiwan allows your doctor to spy on you. An onboard sensor will transmit whether you eat, drink or smoke.
A Martian mystery may have been solved after energy beams were used to prove that the age of a Martian meteorites is actually 4 billion years younger than previously assumed.
The Blackbody force is a newly discovered force that attracts atoms and molecules to hot, opaque objects emitting blackbody radiation. Under certain circumstances, the new force is stronger than gravity.
Scientists have managed to find a way to activate head regeneration in a species of flatworm that usually has no regenerative abilities.
A new “interplanetary precision laser” is being developed which increases the range of lasers so they theoretically could reach Mars and beyond.
The electron microscope has revolutionized the way we observe the very smallest parts of our observable universe. They’ve gotten very good over the years, but now they’ve gotten about as good as they can get.
