Scientists have discovered a new, earth-friendly method that can dramatically reduce the amount of energy it takes to bleach cotton while at the same time improving the quality of the material.
It sounds like something out of a science fiction movie; scientists have created a way for pilots to control a plane using only their brains. With a wired cap on his head, a pilot can use his mind to control an aircraft and make a safe landing.
Students at Brigham Young University recently launched the "Signglasses" project in an attempt to develop a better system of sign language for narration through several types of glasses, including Google Glass.
Researchers have created a super-hydrophobic surface that is extremely difficult to wet and makes water to bounce like a ball.
Its developers say that the OutRunner robot can run up to 20 miles per hour and can last for two hours on a single charge. They’ve turned to Kickstarter in order to raise money to fully develop and perfect the six-legged robot for a variety of purposes.
The effects of mental illness can be devastating and even deadly in some cases. A new study conducted by researchers at the University of Oxford highlights the need to push for increased awareness and treatments for these health issues.
Advances in technology provide new and exciting opportunities for users all around the world. Yet recent research examines the possible dangers on children's mental development when they involve themselves with certain wireless technologies, according to a new project that launched Tuesday.
Bats are excellent flyers, soaring through the night skies as they quickly maneuver to catch insects or feed on fruit. Now, scientists have found that bats have a capability within their wings that may explain how they fine-tune their flight.
Flying robots aren't a thing of the future; they're something that scientists are already creating. Researchers have taken tips from nature in order to build the next generation of tiny, flying robots.
Can you imagine hearing light? That's exactly what a new device does. The technology "listens" for light waves and could help open up the last frontier of the electromagnetic spectrum-the terahertz range.
Paleontology may involve studying fossils and remnants from the past, but that doesn't mean future techniques aren't making the process a bit easier--and more insightful.
