Any changes in a person's walking speed or stride length could suggest that the individual has suffered an injury or are at a higher risk of falling.
MIT successfully developed a new system capable of 3-D printing the basic structure of an entire building.
In the future, every household will be able to produce nearly three liters of water daily with this tool.
Scientists from the Brigham and Women's Hospital and MIT Eye & Ear have created a new method to create progenitor cells that can become hair cells to restore hearing loss.
The world of military-grade technology is just about to get weirder. The US military has just launched 103 miniature swarming drones from a fighter jet during a California test ride.
Gases like methane break down relatively quickly in the atmosphere, but it turns out their negative effects can linger for hundreds of years.
Scientists have managed to perfect a pill that, when taken, releases daily doses of medicine for extended periods of time.
Enter the mmWave. Scientists are starting to work on a new wireless technology that proves to be much faster than Wi-Fi and has massive bandwidth capabilities. Their first test? Virtual reality.
Recent research has successfully engineered an antimicrobial peptide that can possibly kill bacteria - even those that are antibiotic resistant.
Researchers from MIT have developed a revolutionary "skin" that will help protect robots and humans from impacts and dangerous landings.
For hobbyists of rare and vintage electronics, summers at the Massachusetts Instution of Technology (MIT) must be paradise. Swapfest, a kind of flea market in a small parking lot in campus, gathers together buyers and sellers of everything high-tech and obscure from massive telescopes to antique radios.
There is no doubt humans have left a lasting impact on the environment since the start of the Industrial Revolution. But a new study suggests people were leaving their mark much earlier: Settlers in Madagascar set forests ablaze 1,000 years ago to make room for cattle pastures.
For the first time researchers have successfully froze a rabbit's brain, preserving its all of its synapses, cell membranes, and intracellular structures. This marks a major breakthrough in cryopreservation.
New climate models suggest that parts of the Persian Gulf may experience waves of deadly heat that will eventually force humans to relocate. The region's shallow waters, intense solar rays and clear skies ultimately cause cities to exceed the "tipping point" for human survival.
