Researchers at ETH Zurich have developed a novel control algorithm that allows quadrocopters to continue to fly in spite of multiple motor or propeller failures. This algorithm makes these vehicles safer and may allow them to be used for instance in delivery services.
Could a bra help prevent stress-related over-eating?
As many advertising companies will use sexual imagery to entice buyers to purchase their product, recent findings show that women in particularly are put-off by most sexual imagery displayed, unless the item involved is very expensive.
Archaeologists may be getting a little help when it comes to investigating shipwrecks deep beneath the ocean waves. Scientists have designed a robot turtle named U-CAT that will help researchers learn a little bit more about wrecks rather than diving into the confined spaces themselves.
It turns out that researchers may be able to find you on the Internet and learn about your relationships even if you aren't tagged in a photo. Scientists have created a new algorithm designed to tag locations to quantify relationships between individuals, even those not tagged in any given photo.
NASA has been monitoring Antarctic and Arctic ice since 2009, an endeavor that has become more important than ever as the ice melts due to climate change. Yet scientists have long been intrigued by the bedrock hidden beneath the thick ice sheets, which could impact how ice moves. Now, IceBridge is c...
Thanks to Mexican entrepreneurs, they've worked to develop a system that can generate electricity through the power of a household device that "harnesses" the force of moving cars.
Traditional industrial processes in drug and perfume production can hurt the environment and be less than economical. Now, though, researchers have developed a series of techniques to create a variety of very active iron-based catalysts necessary to produce the alcohols and amines used in the drug a...
Space junk is a growing problem in our Earth's orbit. Now, though, scientists have found a way to track this space junk using a youth radio station. This, in turn, could help spacecraft and satellites avoid this trash and multi-billion dollar collisions.
Synthetic polymers coating a nanoparticle surface can recognize specific molecules just like an antibody.
Scientists have come up with a new, innovative way to generate electricity. They've created a system capable of using cars and pedestrians to generate electric energy.
A recent report from the American Chemical Society's (ACS') award-winning Global Challenges/Chemistry solutions discusses the advances of monitoring devices in remote locations that could potentially save a patients' health. This development works to convert smartphones into powerful mini-microscope...
