Sidewinder snakes have the amazing ability to quickly climb sandy slopes in the desert. Now, scientists have taken a closer look at this ability and have created a snake-like robot to test ideas spawned by observing real snakes.
The Xbox One and the PS4 took the world by storm when they first came out in 2013. Now, one year later, industry experts have taken a look back at the two gaming consoles.
Scientists have been testing robotic, prosthetic limbs that can be controlled by an amputee's mind for a while now. Now, though, these prostheses may have become a clinical reality.
Amputees may just be able to regain the sensation of touch, thanks to new technology. Scientists are looking at creating prosthetic limbs that can send electrical impulses so that the user can actually "feel" what they're touching.
Scientists may have found a new way to detect melanoma early in order to save lives. Scientists have created a camera capable of taking snapshots of the entire human body and rendering high-resolution images of a patient's skin.
Numerous studies have long-debated that violent media can cause aggressive behavior in children. Now, recent findings published in the journal Psychology of Popular Media Culture reiterate an all too familiar fear.
Scientists have taken a closer look at quantum computing and have found that quantum tools can help robots learn and respond much faster to the stimuli around them.
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.
