Real-time traffic models could become feasible by zooming out and studying traffic at the city scale. This should pave the way to smarter traffic management schemes.
How is it possible to walk through 3D virtual realities while staying in one place? Engineers from the Vienna University of Technology have solved this problem and are now introducing their “Virtualizer”.
With a little help from science and technology, Zac Vawter, 32, can now succesffuly control movements of his bionic leg with the help of sensors that send multiple impulses from his nerves and muscles that are originally in the pathway of signals to our brain.
When you learn about chromosomes, you usually visualize an X-shaped blob of DNA. Yet that isn't the true form of an X chromosome. Now, scientists have created a new method for visualizing chromosomes to paint a truer picture of their shape, revealing a little bit more about this DNA.
You may not be able to channel the Force, but you may be able to wield a light saber. Researchers have managed to coax photons into binding together to form molecules, a state of matter that, until recently, had been purely theoretical.
Plastic bags are a big source of waste in our world. Now, though, scientists have found a way to make use of these non-biodegradable plastic grocery bags. They've developed a method to turn these bags into "carbon nanotube membranes," which are high sophisticated materials with a variety of potentia...
A team of Stanford engineers has developed a basic computer using carbon nanotubes, paving the way for the next generation of energy-efficient electronics.
Particles that deliver vaccines directly to mucosal surfaces could defend against many infectious diseases.
Imagine an electronics display that's as clear as a window and can stretch like rubber. Scientists may have created just that. They've developed a transparent, elastic organic light-emitting device (OLED) that could one day be the new screen for your smartphone or your computer.
With the ongoing popularity of convenience foods, we are soon likely to see packaged ready-to-eat sliced apple products on supermarket shelves. Ready-to-eat sliced mango could follow.
Researchers from the University of Missouri are looking into various factors that may indicate a higher risk of addictive-video game use among adults.
Bringing “common sense” to artificial intelligence is one of the biggest challenges in computer science: It entails equipping computers with the shared knowledge that humans use to infer meaning, make connections and communicate, among other things.
