Scientists may have created the very first solar battery. Researchers have succeeded in combining a battery and a solar cell into one hybrid device, which could be huge in terms of renewable energy capture and storage.
Scientists have found that by crumpling a sheet of graphene "paper," it actually takes on new properties that could be useful for creating extremely stretchable supercapacitors to store energy for flexible electronic devices.
Scientists found that people who practice yoga and meditation long term can learn to control a computer with their minds faster and better than people with little experience with meditation or yoga.
There are an increasing number of small "CubeSat" satellites being launched into orbit. Now, though, scientists have announced that in combination with a relaxed attitude to debris mitigation, these satellites could lead to hazards for all space users.
Scientists have created a new map of the world's seafloor, showing an unprecedented level of detail when it comes to the mountains and trenches that rise and sink beneath the waves.
Scientists have found that a fingerprint-based recognition method to track vaccination schedules could potentially save infants and toddlers from disease worldwide.
Scientists may have just created a new eco-friendly battery. They've used materials from alfalfa and pine resin in order to create a new battery that could potentially replace present-day lithium batteries.
Scientists may have found out a new way to create stable and reliable memory storage. They've engineered a technology that mimics the human brain to bring ultra-fast, nano-scale data storage within reach.
Cloaking devices are being developed by researchers around the world. Now, scientists have taken a new step when it comes to creating a technology to hide objects from view.
Texting while driving is obviously dangerous, whether you're using a smartphone or Google Glass. Yet surprisingly, scientists have found that texting Glass users outperformed smartphone users when it came to regaining control of their vehicles after a traffic accident.
With its multiple tentacles and quick movements, the octopus appears like it could be alive--but it's not. The octopus is actually a robot that scientists have been working on for the past few years.
There may be a way to help people regain more function in their hands after surgery: mechanization. Engineers have developed and successfully demonstrated the value of a simple pulley mechanism that can actually improve hand function.
