A new cooling cap system could prevent hair loss during chemotherapy. The clinical trial, presented at the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium, showed that wearing the cooling cap before, during and after chemotherapy sessions could greatly reduce the risk of hair loss.
Engineering researchers from the Michigan State University have developed a pioneering nanotechnology that may soon power up smartphones and wearable devices using simple human motions, such as walking and swiping.
NASA collaborates with Stephen Hawking and his project to send a nanocraft to Alpha Centauri. Hawking's nanocraft can allegedly travel at 1/5th the speed of sound.
It was in 2012 when a private company called Mars One announced that they plan to send the first set of humans to set foot on the planet Mars. With the originally aimed schedule of 2024 nearing, it is about time that the first astronauts to reach Mars start to prepare. What is most interesting about this trip is that it may be a one-way ticket, as Mars One not only plans to set foot on Mars, but also plans to be the first to "establish a colony" on the red planet.
Researchers from the University of Utah have found a way to print hidden images using a very inexpensive product: commercial inkjet printers. By using an invisible ink to hide messages in seemingly regularly printed images, it is a revolutionary way to detect counterfeit items in the future.
Researchers from the University of California Berkeley have developed a tiny robot that could leap almost 11 feet into the air and leave the ground in seconds. The team aims to use this tiny leaping robot to save soldiers during wartime and victims during disasters.
"Believe lies long enough until they become real" may be a scary truth after all. Stories describing events that never happened, or fake news, have been so prolific in the past few months.
An understanding AI isn't entirely beyond the realm of human understanding. In fact, scientists may have just built an AI system that spontaneously reproduces some aspects of human neurology -- as in things like facial cues.
People have always been a fan of dystopian media -- the idea of Big Brother, dystopian literature, and even dystopian films. However, China may be at the top of it all because of its Social Credit System.
Size does count, and the smaller, the better -- at least for space. NASA and the Korea Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) are planning to develop a small spacecraft made from a single silicon chip that can zip through interstellar speeds in a breath.
It seems scientists need only two things to treat Alzheimer's -- a bulb and a few switches. Figuratively, of course. An hour's worth of light therapy per day has seen to break down Alzheimer's-like brain deposits in mice. And while this may seem like a long way to go for human treatment, the possibility of human trials is indeed promising.
Two companies are now using satellite imagery to provide homeowners with more accurate estimates for roof construction work.
The Japanese space agency’s Hayabusa 2 gears up for a trip to asteroid Ryugu to bring back asteroid samples to Earth for further studies.
Santa Claus has been a fictional character meant to represent the spirit of gift giving during Christmas. However, a sleigh dragged by flying reindeer seems to be an age-old concept of travel, and people are thinking about what Santa could look like if he lived in the modern world.
Virtual reality has been gaining ground in recent years, and researchers from the University of Washington have presented the possibility of human interaction with virtual reality through direct brain stimulation.
