It's an age-old problem that has baffled scientists for decades: the challenge of breaking a dry spaghetti noodle in just two pieces. In a new study, MIT students finally figure out how.
MIT develops new electrochemical process that has the ability to selectively remove organic contaminants, including chemical waste products, pesticides and pharmaceuticals, even at extremely low levels.
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.
Sebastian Pattinson, a postdoctoral student from MIT, has recently created a method to use cellulose as a 3D printing material.
Robotics may soon be powered by tree-inspired chips.
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.
A recent study reveals that the personality of a robot companion could actually influence the development growth of children.
Mind control is the key to robot efficiency.
Stranger things are becoming reality in quantum mechanics.
It appears the machine "threat" is not as mediocre as some thought. It seems, if AI experts are right, that machines will quickly become smarter than humans by the time they achieve human-level intelligence.
For Einstein, quantum entanglement is one of the mysteries he could not solve. For him, there cannot be an action at a distance without an interaction. However, modern physicists beg to differ. A new study proves itself to be the strongest evidence that the universe is really undergoing quantum entanglement.
A team of astronomers opens planet-hunting for crowdsourcing with newly-released data and a user-friendly program.
