A team of researchers has developed a novel inexpensive wastewater treatment system for rural areas.
A Chinese construction firm based in Shanghai has taken 3D printing one step further. They've created a printer that can actually construct houses.
Science may be improving your wine in the future. Researchers have created a new device, a nanosensor, which can mimic what happens in your mouth when you drink wine, measuring how you experience the sensation of dryness.
Scientists may have uncovered a new way to send data at superfast speeds. Building on previous research that twisted light to send data, scientists have managed to develop a similar technique with radiowaves.
Batteries power cell phones, cars, flashlights and other devices. Now, scientists may have come up with a water-based solution for powering electronics.
Don't judge a book by its cover--unless you're a killifish. Scientists have found that female killifish prefer males with yellow fins, despite the various color morphs that male bluefin killifish display.
Think of a material that can change its color and pattern automatically. Sounds a bit like science fiction, right? But that's exactly what scientists are looking to create with their new color-display technology.
Learning how to control liquid metals could have huge applications for the future. Now, scientists may have just found a way to control these metals; the trick lies in the oxide "skin" of the metal.
MIT researchers have not only successfully created a robotic cheetah, but have given it the ability to bound across a field without being tethered. The new robot could just represent a new method to create speedy robots.
Imagine a robot that can function in snow, walk through flames and even get run over by a car and still work. Do you think it's too impossible to be true? Then think again.
Curbing this tide of carbon dioxide emissions is difficult when you don't know how much gas is being released. That's why researchers have tracked and estimated CO2 emissions from burning fossil fuels over 15 years.
