Cartilage is one of the most important tissues in the body. It can keep joints moving smoothly and painlessly. Yet over time, cartilage can become damaged or worn down, which can cause pain and lack of mobility. Now, scientists have combined two innovative technologies to create artificial cartilage...
The cryptocurrency Bitcoin has been in the news lately with a sudden surge in value followed by another small crash – not to mention the unfortunate tale of US$4 million in bitcoin on a hard drive that was accidentally dumped in a rubbish tip.
Researchers at the University at Buffalo and elsewhere are helping to advance technology that allows people to control robots with their minds.
Synthetic, man-made cells and ultrathin electronics built from a new form of “zero-dimensional” carbon nanotube may be possible through research at the University of Pittsburgh Swanson School of Engineering.
Significant changes in high-performance computing software and hardware have been on the horizon for nearly a decade.
By exploiting flaws in miniscule diamond fragments, researchers say they have achieved enough coherence of the magnetic moment inherent in these defects to harness their potential for precise quantum sensors in a material that is 'biocompatible'.
Researchers at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology have developed open-source software capable of significantly speeding up complex computations.
Carbon capture and storage technology has the potential to curtail greenhouse gas emissions. Yet there are issues with this particular technology and the various methods have been widely debated by researchers and the public. Now, scientists have revealed that the future availability of CCS will be ...
Morphing materials, which are materials that can change their shape based on environmental conditions, may just be the future for bioengineering. Now, researchers have developed a new composite material that can change its shape when heated and then changes back when cooled.
Brain injury can cause a host of impacts after the initial accident. Behavior can be influenced and affect an individual for years to come. Now, though, researchers have designed a neural prosthesis that restores behavior in brain injured rats.
Antibiotics which break down before bacteria can evolve resistance to them; perfumes which release the heady scent of freshly cut flowers as your body heats up; and powerful cancer drugs directed to exactly where they are needed are some of the potential applications of microscopic chemical robots u...
