Scientists are giving cyborg cockroaches an upgrade. They've created new technology that allows these biobots to pick up sounds with small microphones, and then seek out the source of the sound.
What if we could communicate to one another without speaking? What if we could simply communicate using our brains? Scientists are working on just that and have now successfully replicated a direct brain-to-brain connection between pairs of people.
Research shows that Elton John may have been right; sad songs really do say a lot, and particularly when we're feeling unhappy but looking to lighten up.
You wouldn't think that dance has much in common with computers. In this case, though, it does. Scientists have found that blending movement and computer programming actually supports girls in building computational thinking skills.
Imagine taking waste from crops and, instead of throwing it away, turning it into something useful. Scientists are doing just that with a new technique.
The Center for Process Innovation, a British technology research company, is working to renovate your airplane experience in a way that you might not have thought of. They're actually hoping to remove the windows from passenger planes and replace them with OLED touch screens that extend the entire l...
Continuous technological advances are helping make headway in the medical world. Now, recent findings published in the journal Trends in Microbiology show that health-related data collected from social media websites can help to track, predict and even prevent certain health conditions-including the...
Obesity in America has become a severe public health crisis. Estimates show that more than one-third of U.S. adults are obese, costing $147 billion annually in medical costs for related health issues.
Determined to create robots that can run, scientists have turned toward an animal for a source of inspiration. They've taken a closer look at running birds in order to examine the physics behind how these feathered creatures sprint so quickly.
Can you imagine flying through space with a laser-powered rocket? It seems like something more about of science fiction than reality, right? Yet a new method for improving the thrust generated by laser-propulsion systems could bring laser-powered rockets closer to reality.
How does a robot make a decision? It's all based on its programming, but understanding what goes into this decision-making process is important for future system designs.
Texting may actually help combat Malaria, according to recent findings published in the journal PLOS ONE. Researchers found that a mosquito-borne illnesses that's caused by a parasite and has killed more than 600,000 people, 91 percent in Africa, could be reduced by texting reminders regarding medic...
