New microscopy technique captures 3-D images of cells as they flow through a microfluidic channel.
Nanoparticles have a great deal of potential in medicine: for diagnostics, as a vehicle for active substances or a tool to kill off tumours using heat. ETH Zurich researchers have now developed particles that are relatively easy to produce and have a wide range of applications.
A recent study shows that violent video games may boost aggression in young children.
A collaborative study discovered that when compared to humans, a computer system can more accurately identify real or faked expressions of pain.
Hybrid materials combine bacterial cells with nonliving elements that can conduct electricity or emit light.
The Defense Research Advanced Projects Agency (DARPA) is famous for their robotics contests. Through these contests the agency developed the autonomous car, and many are aware, yet concerned, that an autonomous robot might soon be developed.
Since the end of last year, Switzerland has boasted the most powerful supercomputer in Europe: "Piz Daint". As of today, it is officially cleared for research. For the approval, "early science" has already been conducted successfully on "Piz Daint" over the last few weeks.
Despite the availability of technology that can track planes and other aircraft in real time, the technology has not been widely utilized by airlines or their regulators because of concerns over cost as well as the small likelihood of flight crashes and disappearances.
Robots could scour avalanche sites, enter burning buildings or secure city streets contaminated by poisonous chemicals, saving lives and increasing the effectiveness of rescue missions.
Scientists in Florida studying the way lobsters sniff around for food on the sea floor say they have found a clue to developing technology that could help soldiers detect landmines and hidden explosives from a safer distance than current technology allows.
Brian Wright, a UC Berkeley professor of agricultural and resource economics, has conducted a study that revealed industry-sponsored academic research leads to more innovative patents and licenses.
Using the properties of a smartphone screen to perform blood tests: the device developed by Qloudlab allows at-home analysis in less than a minute. The expanded diagnostics will be used to help people undergoing anticoagulant treatment.
