Scientists have developed new heat-resistant materials that could be used to make more efficient solar energy devices by converting heat into infrared light.
Scientists around the world are currently trying to develop advanced prosthetic limbs that can provide people with a better quality of life. A new study has demonstrated that amputees will soon be able to touch and feel things with artificial hands.
Using only sunlight and wastewater, researchers from the University of California, Santa Cruz have found a way to produce hydrogen gas.
Using ultrasound waves, researchers have created a "forcefield" that allows users to interact with a screen without actually touching it.
MIT researchers have created a new algorithm, based on a rarely used statistical model, which can advance robot vision.
Scientists from around the world joined together Monday to begin work on a computer simulation of the brain.
Researchers have developed a method that enables them to simultaneously visualize the gene activity in single cells.
Robotics company Boston Dynamics has released a video of a four-legged device called the WildCat. The robot represents the next generation of the company's Cheetah, which, at speeds of 29 mph, is the fastest robot animal in the world, according to Popular Mechanics.
A South Korean research team has developed an autonomous aquatic robot designed to shred swarms of jellyfish to pieces.
NASA's next mission to Mars is going forward despite the government shutdown, Principal Investigator Bruce Jakosky announced Thursday.
Researchers have found that 3D printing is not just cheaper, but a greener way of making things.
The Canadian Space Agency (CSA) teamed up with the California-based SpaceX to launch a satellite researchers hope will help increase understanding of space weather.
Researchers have developed a wagon-wheel shaped molecule far more effective at emitting light than typical light-emitting diodes (LEDs).
SpaceX has successfully launched a Falcon 9 rocket from the leased launch pad at Vandenberg Air Force Station, in California, Friday noon.
Reality, it seems, is catching up to fiction. This time, however, it appears, quite by accident. Not just any accident, it's worth mentioning. Accidents of the sort that only happen when smart people are paid to do nothing else but think and experiment.
