It turns out that the food you waste could one day create plastic. Scientists have created a novel process which could help the world deal with its agricultural and plastic waste problems while at the same time relieving the burden placed on petroleum for plastic products.
Could you imagine a row of solar panels that also function as windows? Scientists may just have developed a new type of solar concentrator that when placed over a window creates solar energy while still allowing people to see outside.
A recent report from Community Health Systems found that data on 4.5 million clients was stolen by Chinese hackers from its computer network.
Imagine a moth flapping its way through a disaster area, flying over regions that are too dangerous for humans. Now imagine if you could control that moth in order to assess an area, bringing back critical data for search and rescue missions.
What movements do worms use when it comes to inching through the Earth? That's a question that scientists have now answered with the help of a mathematical model which challenges the tradition view of how these creatures get around.
A cephalopod deemed the cuttlefish has inspired a new type of camouflage system.
New York may have been given coined the City that Never Sleeps. However, a new study shows that it's sleeping quite a bit more than other major metropolises.

Findings published in the journal Cyberpsychology, Behavior, and Social Networking, found that they can also increase the risk of depression.
Parents who are sick and tired of wondering what their rambunctious teens might be up to can use a new method to track them down; it's called the "Ignore No More" app.
A laser may just make an atomic-force microscope probe 20 times more sensitive. Scientists have found a way to make these microscopes powerful enough to detect forces as small as the weight of an individual virus.
Could we genetically enhance produce without introducing foreign genes? That might just be the future for our crops. Recent advances now allow the precise editing of genomes and raise the possibility of genetically improving crops.
