You wouldn't think that human waste could power a robot--but apparently it can. Scientists have developed a new device modeled on the human heart that's capable of pumping pee into the "engine room" of a self-sustaining robot.
NASA MAVEN Arrived at Launch Pad and Set Atop Atlas 5 Rocket
Tesco, a British grocer with global status, has this week teamed up with Alan Sugar’s Amscreen to take personalised advertising to the next level. By means of Amscreen’s proprietary facial recognition technology, Tesco is introducing cameras that determine your age and gender when you reach the ...
A massive typhoon lashed the central and southern Philippines on Nov. 7, bringing with it sustained winds of a Category 5 hurricane. Now, NASA has revealed visible, infrared and microwave satellite data to forecasters, revealing just how severe this super-typhoon is as it moves toward the west.
In a new finding, researchers at the Imperial College London claim that solar panels work harder on listening to music. This holds true for pop music than compared to the classical music.
Should men actually sit down to pass urine?
As the moon spins around the earth, its gravity creates a bulge in the oceans that causes tides. Researchers are working out ways to tap into this immense power, and smart sensors could help them do it cost-effectively.
It turns out that even monkeys can use virtual technology. These animals have learned to control the movement of both arms on an avatar using just their brain activity. The findings could help advance efforts to develop bilateral movement in brain-controlled prosthetic devices for severely paralyzed...
Flickering façades, curved monitors, flashing clothing, fluorescent wallpaper, flexible solar cells – and all printable. This is no make-believe vision of the future; it will soon be possible using a new printing process for organic light-emitting diodes.
Programming computers to recognize people usually means focusing exclusively on faces. Now, though, researchers have revealed that it may be beneficial to also focus on a person's body. It turns out that there is potentially more valuable information for biometrics-based identity recognition in imag...
A new, self-correcting crystal may just unleash a wave of next generation advanced communications. The nanostructured materials, a family of multilayered crystalline sandwiches, may just enable a new class of high-performance, high-efficiency components for devices such as cellular phones.
Physicists have unveiled a new atomic clock that promises to boost precision. They've created a compact atomic clock design that relies on cold rubidium atoms instead of the usual hot atoms, a switch the promises improved precision and stability.
