Scientists have created the first material where light can travel infinitely fast.
New face recognition software could be a way to prevent fraud.
MIT may soon be replacing human intuition with algorithms. Scientists have created a new big-data analysis system that outperforms 615 of 906 human teams.
These days, most of us are running on few hours of sleep and a whole lot of coffee. But while you might think that our ancient ancestors knew better about getting their rest, think again. New research published in the journal Current Biology shows that we've been restless since the dawn of time.
Scientists are exploring how to bring Spiderman's "powers" to life by exploring the properties underlying spider glue's humidity-responsive adhesion to create "smart adhesives."
Scientists have fabricated and a large-scale model of a harbor seal's whisker, and identified a mechanism that may explain how seal sense their environment and track their prey.
People may be able to feel with artificial, robotic skin.
Imagine soft robots that can bend, walk and grip. That's exactly what scientists have created in this latest study, which may herald a new age of robotics.
The U.S. Army has set out to monitor the performance of an incredible new weapon that can actually strike soldiers shielded by a cover.
In a recent experiment, scientists attempted redefining temperature by using precision lasers to measure the speed of individual atoms.
Robots aren't perfect. Or maybe they are, at least, programmed to be. Yet new research suggests that humans are less likely to successfully form working relationships with interactive robots if they're never making any mistakes--or might we say, too "robotic."
