Brain-computer interface may be the future for the human race. Now, researchers have made some new findings about this technique--practice makes perfect.
Conventional methods average over thousands of cells, overlooking any cell-to-cell variability. ETH scientists now measured metabolite levels in single yeast cells and unmasked the difference of one cell to the next.
A single cell in our body is composed of thousands of millions of different biomolecules that work together in an extremely well-coordinated way. Likewise, many biological and biochemical reactions occur only if molecules are present at very high concentrations. Understanding how all these molecules...
Cockroaches are some of the least-loved creatures of the insect world. Now, these roaches may be getting an upgrade that may make them even creepier. Scientists have created cyborg roaches that can be controlled with the touch of a smartphone.
A new algorithm solves a major problem with homomorphic encryption, which would let Web servers process data without decrypting it.
Fuel cell technology has come a long way since the early days in the Apollo space program, but it is still a rather expensive module, limiting its wider application. One of the major reasons are the platinum (Pt) catalysts used in most designs, which are costly and insufficient for industry demand.
The US National Security Agency (NSA) has direct access to information on the servers of major American internet companies, according to reports published in the Guardian and the Washington Post.
Facebook use can be damaging to the user's romantic relationships. Those who use Facebook often are more likely to experience Facebook-linked conflict with their romantic partners and may have a negative outcome on the relationship, including emotional and physical cheating, breakup and divorce.
Quantum teleportation is nothing new. Now, though, they've made a new breakthrough. Researchers have succeeded in teleporting information between two clouds of gas atoms--several times.
New ultrathin, planar, lightweight, and broadband polarimetric photonic devices and optics could result from recent research by a team of Los Alamos National Laboratory scientists. The advances would boost security screening systems, infrared thermal cameras, energy harvesting, and radar systems.
Los Alamos National Laboratory scientists have designed a new type of nanostructured-carbon-based catalyst that could pave the way for reliable, economical next-generation batteries and alkaline fuel cells, providing for practical use of wind- and solar-powered electricity, as well as enhanced hybri...
NASA may be able to show us what would happen if all of the ice suddenly melted in Antarctica--or at least what the land mass would look like. The British Antarctic Survey has helped create a sharp map of the southern reaches of our globe that reveals what lies beneath the continent's icy cloak.
