A recent finding from Georgia Institute of Technology states that sending text messages to children suffering with asthma, enquiring about their symptoms and providing knowledge about their condition, helps in improving their health.
An experimental digital camera that mimics the compound eyes possessed by insects such as dragonflies, houselfies and praying mantises has been designed by scientists.
Researchers have found a way to allow a robot to delicately reach through clutter in order to pick up an object. The new creation has major implications for robotics and the creation of touch-sensitive limbs.
It turns out that there's a global mood ring that measures the world's happiness and sadness. It doesn't use colors, though; instead, it uses Twitter. And what did it find? April 15, 2013, the date of the Boston Marathon bombings, was the saddest day on record in five years.
Blackberry CEO, Thorsten Heins, said Sunday that tablets life span will expire in 5 years time.
To develop an affordable photovoltaic system capable of concentrating solar radiation 2,000 times and converting 80 percent of the incoming radiation into useful energy, the Swiss Commission for Technology and Innovation has awarded Swiss scientists a $2.4 million (2.25 million CHF) grant
Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology have developed a unique integrated motor drive and battery charger for electric vehicles. Compared to today's electric vehicle chargers, they have managed to shorten the charging time from eight to two hours, and to reduce the cost by around $2,000.
Graphene researchers announced that they developed a super-fast switching transistor capable of revolutionising technologies for medical imaging and security screening.
The web technology was already invented in 1989 at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland, but it was on 30 April 1993 that CERN released the necessary software to the public domain for everyone to use with a historic statement that made World Wide Web ("W3", or simply "the web") technology officially availabl...
Silicone could be used in self-healing materials. Researchers have discovered that during its liquid crystal phase, it becomes stiffer after compression--just like a muscle.
Rosie the Robot from the Jetsons might seem a bit farfetched, but it turns out roboticists are already creating her. Now, scientists are asking healthcare providers whether or not these robots would be a good idea.
Is it really survival of the fittest? That may not be the case when it comes to evolution. Computer scientists have discovered that the popular explanation of competition to survive in nature may not actually be necessary for evolvability to increase.
