Researchers may have created the world's thinnest light bulb. By using graphene, scientists have constructed an on-chip visible light source.
Scientists have discovered that hawkmoths have the unique ability to slow down their brains when hovering in order to see better in the dark and to better target the swaying flowers that they look to for food.
We may be entering the "golden age" of animal tracking. Animals wearing new tagging and tracking devices are giving scientists a real-time look at their behavior and the environmental health of the planet.
Imagine a robot that learns like a child. That's exactly what two researchers have created-at least that's the idea. The new robot has to learn everything from scratch, starting from nothing.
Computers and water don't normally mix. Now, though, scientists have mingled the two with a new, water-based computer that operates using the unique physics of moving water droplets.
Camera traps may be revealing the hidden lives on animals on the Serengeti. Researchers have used automatic cameras triggered by heat or motion in order to better understand the behavior of animals in the African savanna.
Google celebrated World Oceans Day, June 8, with something interesting. In conjunction with the XL Catlin Seaview Survey team, Google released 40 new underwater Street View Locations, including ones in the Great Barrier Reef in Australia.
Minecraft isn't just a game; it may also be helping robotics. Scientists are using this video game to help develop a new algorithm to allow robots to better plan their actions in complex environments.
When it comes to mobile phones, the environment may be in trouble.
Scientists have created the MOTOMAN-MH24 robot, which has learned from and competed against Isao Machii, a five-time world record holder in the art of iaijyutsu, a combative quick-draw sword technique.
Bats living in urban areas are less likely to move from tree to tree in brightly lit areas, according to new findings published in the journal Global Change Biology.
When voracious herbivores attack plants, the vegetation has few ways to defend itself. However, it does react. Scientists have discovered that when a plant is attacked, a number of physiological responses are triggered.
