Time keeping may be getting a bit more precise. Researchers have found that two cryogenically cooled optical lattice clocks can be synchronized to a tremendous one part in 2.0 x 10-18, which means that they would only go out of sync by a second in 16 billion years.
Harvesting sunlight is a trick that plants have mastered. Now, scientists have created a system that also uses sunlight. The technique has the ability to use bacterial to convert solar energy to liquid fuel.
Imagine if your touchscreen could touch you back. Scientists have taken a closer look at bringing texture to touchscreens and have found that under circumstances, people can feel "virtual bumps."
Imagine a robot that can zoom through the water with ultra-fast propulsion and acceleration. That's just what scientists have developed, creating a new machine that moves through the water like an octopus.
Holographic video may not be a thing of the future. It could be happening right now. Holographic video displays, featuring 3D images, are about to get larger and become a lot more affordable at the same time, thanks to scientists.
Scientists may have created a new class of materials that could remove greenhouse gas from power-plant emissions. The new materials could be huge in terms of carbon capture and sequestration.
There may be a new technique to enhance graphene. Scientists have found that a winding thread of odd rings at the border of two sheets of graphene has qualities that could be valuable to manufacturers.
Could your smartphone one day detect HIV or syphilis?
Facebook can be a fun way to keep in touch with friends. Yet it may also increase your risk of depression.
Fish fraud may not seem like a big deal, but it's becoming huge business. In fact, it's estimated that up to 30 percent of the seafood entering the U.S. is fraudulently mislabeled and now, researchers have found a way to sniff out fraudulent species claims.
Have you ever heard of silicene? It could mean a whole new era for computer electronics. The world's thinnest silicone material holes the promise of developing dramatically faster, smaller and more efficient computer chips.
Scientists have created electronic skin that can attach to humans. They've developed a new magnetic sensor which is thin enough and robust enough to be smoothly adapted to human skin and, possibly, give humans a sixth sense: a magnetic sense.
