Researchers from Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Media Lab have developed a $500 3-D nano-camera capable of operating the speed of light.
When it comes to smart design, nature has had a bit of a head-start, well about four billion years. It's no wonder then that scientists have decided to use cheat-codes and copy designs that are already at work.
A clinical study has shown that a latest Tongue-Controlled Wheelchair works better than standard wheelchair control system. The new system could help quadriplegics drive their wheelchairs with greater ease.
Researchers have developed a robotic turtle designed to help explore shipwrecks more effectively and inexpensively.
Finnish technology group VTT reports it has a new satellite-based imaging system that will help more accurately assess tropical forest cover and assist with deforestation verification efforts in tropical forest regions.
Tucked away in a corner of Carnegie Mellon University's campus, a computer program diligently sifts through images on the Internet in an effort to build connections between them.
Saturday Japan received a state-of-the-art weather satellite anticipated to set the new global standard for precipitation measurements from space, NASA reported Monday.
Scientists are now trying to understand the mechanism that enables owls to fly noiselessly during night. The research may pave way for a new generation of silent aircrafts, turbines and submarines.
Researchers have built a tiny flying machine that moves around like the ocean-swelling jellyfish.
NASA officials and the Norwegian-based oil and gas company Statoil signed an agreement Friday designed to help the company access new fossil fuel reserves using and expanding upon the US agency's technology.
Stanene, a new material containing a thin layer of tin could potentially replace Silicon from the heart of transistors. A team of theoretical physicists said that a single layer of tin atoms can conduct electricity with 100 percent efficiency at room temperature.
Massachusetts Institute of Technology researchers have developed a new material that lets water bounce off its surface very easily. The new butterfly-inspired, super-dry surface can be used in many industries, right from rainwear to airplane wings.
A new nano-mechanical system capable of creating FM signals is, in effect, the world's smalls FM radio transmitter.
Virtual reality hands controlled by one's thoughts pose an effective and affordable tool in helping stroke survivors regain use for their hands and arms, a new study found.
