A fully autonomous vehicle completed a test-drive this month on the exact same route that the inventors of the automobile, Karl and Bertha Benz, chose for the very first long-distance drive of their patented invention 125 years ago.
Scientists have built a new computer. It's not just any computer, though; it was created with carbon nanotubes, a semiconductor material that has the potential to launch a new generation of electronic devices that run faster while using less energy.
What if a robot could act and even feel like a human? Researchers are getting a bit closer to accomplishing that feat. They're working on a robot that feels, sees, thinks and learns like us as the lines between man and machine become a bit more blurry.
NASA along with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security are working on creating a radar device that is capable of detecting heartbeats and breathing patterns of the people buried under large piles of rubble causes from a disaster.
The world’s first 3D printed human-scale structure seen here was designed and created by architects Michael Hansmeyer and Benjamin Dillenburger out of plain sand.
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...
