A recent report released by the McKinsey Institute predicts the potential economic contribution of new technologies such as advanced robotics, mobile internet and 3D printing are expected to return between US$14 trillion and US$33 trillion globally per year by 2025.
Of course it's fun to look at pictures of food online. (Instagram, anyone?) But have we ever thought about the possibility that we could actually taste what we're looking at without actually eating?
Scientists from across the globe met in Switzerland last month for the launch of the Human Brain Project. Billed as the world’s most ambitious neurosciencfle project, it seeks to develop methods that will enable a deep understanding of how the human brain operates.
Tin could be the next super material. Theorists predict that the single layer of pure tin could be the world's first material to conduct electricity at room temperature with 100 percent efficiency.
German carmaker Volkswagen is the world’s largest private sector Research & Development investor with an investment of €9.5bn in 2012, according to the European Commission's 2013 EU Industrial R&D Investment Scoreboard.
Scientists may have just made one of the most waterproof materials in existence. Although there's a theoretical limit on the time it takes for a water droplet to bounce away from a hydrophobic surface, researchers have discovered a way to burst through that perceived barrier. The findings could lead...
A team of U.S. engineers have created the most water resistant material in which the droplets knocked down the theoretical time barrier on bouncing. This latest find can be used in several application ranging from aircraft wings to waterproof clothing.
In a new technique, German researchers have used combination of computed tomography (CT) scans along with three dimensional(3D) printers to recreate accurate copies of dinosaur fossils.
Stanford researchers have developed an inexpensive device that uses light to split water into oxygen and clean-burning hydrogen. The goal is to supplement solar cells with hydrogen-powered fuel cells that can generate electricity when the sun isn't shining or demand is high.
Control of the Magnetic Moment of Single Atoms Is the Key to Compact Data Memories and Quantum Computers
With the advent of high-frequency trading, traders can use superfast computers – essentially supercomputers of their own – to compete in the market, taking advantage of brief price differences to clean up on profit.
