This robot is sure to give you nightmares. Researchers at the University of California, Berkeley have created a cockroach-inspired robot that scurries across the ground and uses its body shape to maneuver through densely cluttered environments.
Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology have found that magnetic nanoparticles could deliver heat directly to cancerous tumors. This would help to dramatically increase the effectiveness of pre-existing cancer treatments, including chemotherapy and radiation--perhaps even r...
Researchers at the University of Wyoming have discovered that using graphic novels can help improve the quality of life for Spanish speaking agricultural workers. In fact, they found that certain vision or fantasies that may they have read about can actually help to better prevent hearing loss for s...
Want to improve your mood? Watch a few cat videos. Scientists have found that viewing cat videos boosts energy and positive emotions.
Scientists have created a toy car that is powered by the power of water vapor. The new car, which taps into the power of renewable energy, may pave the way for larger devices in the future.
Scientists have taken a closer look at the ethical puzzles that a self-driving car may face in order to find out if the computerized system may cause deadly crashes in order to save more people at the end of the day.
Researchers may have created the world's thinnest light bulb. By using graphene, scientists have constructed an on-chip visible light source.
Scientists have discovered that hawkmoths have the unique ability to slow down their brains when hovering in order to see better in the dark and to better target the swaying flowers that they look to for food.
We may be entering the "golden age" of animal tracking. Animals wearing new tagging and tracking devices are giving scientists a real-time look at their behavior and the environmental health of the planet.
Imagine a robot that learns like a child. That's exactly what two researchers have created-at least that's the idea. The new robot has to learn everything from scratch, starting from nothing.
Computers and water don't normally mix. Now, though, scientists have mingled the two with a new, water-based computer that operates using the unique physics of moving water droplets.
Camera traps may be revealing the hidden lives on animals on the Serengeti. Researchers have used automatic cameras triggered by heat or motion in order to better understand the behavior of animals in the African savanna.
