Thanks to engineers from the University of Illinois, they've come up with a new line of miniature 'swimming bio-bots' that are the first class of synthetic structures to travel through viscous biological fluids on their own.
Scientists have used silver nanowires to develop wearable, multifunctional sensors that could be used in biomedical, military or athletic applications, including new prosthetics, robotic systems and flexible touch panels.
Lee has created an algorithm that can accurately identify objects in images or video sequences without human calibration.
On Thursday, Google announced the testing of a smart contact lens that is developed to measure the levels of glucose in tears and monitor diabetes.
This month, the Texas Advanced Computer Center (TACC) at The University of Texas at Austin, US, along with technology partners HP and NVIDIA, will deploy Maverick- a powerful, high-performance visualization and data analytics resource for the open science and engineering community.
For almost two years, researchers at ETH Zurich have been measuring air quality along tram lines in Zurich with mobile sensors, generating precise maps that for the first time show when and where air pollution in Zurich is at its highest.
EPFL scientists have developed an innovative mathematical method to greatly improve computer modeling of metamaterials.
An international tests show claims that the sticky feet of a gecko like robot developed by a team of engineering scientists could be useful in future space missions.
A collaborative study funded by DARPA had led to the development of a world's fastest thin-film organic transistors. This newly developed thin, transparent semiconductors promises to stand as a foundation for cheap, high performance displays.
Researchers at the University of Texas Arlington have designed a micro-windmill that is fully functional while barely visible: A single grain of rice could hold about 10 of these tiny windmills.
A spate of internet hacking during the New Year period – including an attack on Skype by hacker group the Syrian Electronic Army, and another on social media photo sharing app Snapchat by website SnapchatDB – demonstrates the emergence of a new phase in hacking wars: corporate greed and hubris a...
Inventor Nikola Tesla imagined the technology to transmit energy through thin air almost a century ago, but experimental attempts at the feat have so far resulted in cumbersome devices that only work over very small distances.
