The Large Hadron Collider may have shut down, but physicists are using some unusual techniques to test it, including a ping-pong ball.
Researchers have outfitted larvae with tiny nano-suits that allow them to withstand the harsh conditions of a space-like vacuum.
Researchers have created the first 3-D model of an enzyme located within plant cell walls. The knowledge of this plant protein shape could allow scientists to better target areas for genetic modification.
What if you didn't have to rely on your own furniture-assembling expertise (or lack thereof) when putting together an IKEA table? Researchers have created a robot that can "learn" how to help assemble furniture.
Treadmill users will now be able to read their favorite book while running. A new innovation allows treadmill runners to work their body and brain at the same time.
Most of the robotic designs look to nature for inspiration. Similarly a group of researchers from the University of Leeds used tree frogs as a model to design tiny robots to crawl inside a patients' body during a keyhole surgery.
Google has informed developer members of its Glass Explorers team that the first wave of Glass prototypes is ready to go out to them.
Scientists developed nanostructured photonic materials that could vastly improve the daylight cooling of buildings, cars, and other structures by reflecting sunlight directly back into the chilly vacuum of space. A paper describing the device was now published in Nano Letters.
There could be a way to engineer brains cells. Researchers have discovered a technique that can directly convert skin cells to the type of brain cells that are destroyed in some genetic disorders.
There may be a new way to treat poisonous bites and toxins that are produced by E. coli. Researchers have developed a "nanosponge" that's capable of safely removing a broad class of dangerous toxins from the bloodstream.
Hawaii Board of Land and Natural Resources has given green light to one of the most daring scientific projects the Pacific paradise archipelago has undertaken.
The term "Industry 4.0" was coined, similar to Cloud Computing, to have a short and symbolic keyword describing the smart factories, intelligent machines and networked processes that facilitate and result from the 4th industrial revolution that is now beginning. It will be one of the major trends sh...
