A new design tool interprets hand gestures, enabling designers and artists to create and modify...
Scientists launched an online “game” to better understand the sources of global warming gases....
A breakthrough for direct imaging of exoplanets: ground-based telescopes have begun taking infrared pictures of the planets posing near their stars in family portraits.
Researchers have described mathematically the successive stages in the complex evolution and disappearance of foamy bubbles.
Scientists are planning a new experiment that could open the doors to new realms of particle physics. But first, they have to move a complex electromagnet that spans 50 feet in diameter 3,200 miles.
A new material's artificial "atoms" are designed to work with a broad range of light frequencies. With adjustments, the researchers believe it could lead to perfect microscope lenses or invisibility cloaks.
A team has developed in vivo silicon-based flexible large scale integrated circuits for bio-medical wireless communication.
A troop of zoo baboons and lots of peanuts shows that man and his primate cousins share the ability to understand numbers.
May is a great month to see a lovely collection of constellations with your own eyes and view objects studied by NASA spacecraft and telescopes.
The tail of a seahorse can be compressed to about half its size before permanent damage occurs. Researchers are hoping to use a similar structure to create a flexible robotic arm equipped with muscles made out of polymers.
Robots are now able to intelligently maneuver within clutter, gently making contact with objects while accomplishing a task.
New experiments in a tokamak fusion reactor revealed details of a cooling process, potentially bringing practical fusion closer.
A new robot is designed to help children with learning delays— like those on the autism spectrum— improve their social and communication skills.
The inventions of Alexander Graham Bell have allowed people to hear each other’s voices for more than 130 years. Now researchers have identified Bell’s voice for the first time.
A sea turtle-inspired robot has been created by a group of researchers to help understand the mechanics of walking and crawling on complex surfaces.
Metrohm USA showcased its NIRS DS2500 analyzer at Pittcon 2013. The most significant advantage for laboratory NIR analysis is the elimination of sample handling and manipulation. Analyses can be performed rapidly and reproducibly by a number of analysts in QC, R&D, and plant laboratories.
Researchers have— for the first time— seen the self-assembly of nanoparticle chains in situ as it occurs in real-time.
