When we normally think of a 3D printer we imagine a device that begins at the bottom to create a three dimensional object using lower material to support upper portion of the object. A Southern California student has developed a new method for free form printing.
Before I get babbling, I'll take a moment to explain the title of this article, which I'm sure 99% of you got it wrong (and if you're one of those 1%, congratulations, you've won my admiration, for a few seconds). KeyMe allows you to carry your "hardware" keys around.
Back in early 2012, MIT researches developed a microchip about the size of a postage stamp that could sort blood cells using a technique called cell rolling. The original device separated certain cells from cultures, but couldn't extract cells directly. Now they can.
Implanting false memories into someone's brain has been the playground of many science fiction authors over the decades. Researchers in neuroscience at MIT, however, have developed a method that allows them to accomplish exactly that. So far only in mice.
NASA is all set to hook the International Space Station (ISS) up with a 3D printer, so its inhabitants can print and recycle their own contraptions in space, which could be anything from an important part, to a pair of chop-sticks. A plan is approved to that effect.
A team of researchers with the California Institute of Technology, found out a way to step up optical resolution of common microscopes up by 11 times, giving it a field of view equivalent of a billion pixels, using a technique they call Fourier ptychographic microscopy.
Researchers from the University of Tokyo, in collaboration with colleagues from the Johannes Kepler University, have developed the world's lightest and thinnest organic circuits. These imperceptible electronics could hold a key role in numerous healthcare applications.
Using a laptop, a small antenna and a GPS "spoofer" that they built for approximately $3000, a GPS expert and his team were able to take control of the navigation system of a 210-foot yacht in the Mediterranean and steer it at their leisure without the ship knowing.
Boeing, a company better known for their airplanes than their spacecraft, unveiled a test version of their next-generation space capsule called the CST-100. Keeping simplicity in mind, the craft is designed for easier control and is a reflection of modern technology.
What should have taken public-money fueled organizations like the FCC no time to find out, took a team of five 9th graders from Denmark a simple 12-day experiment to assert. Radiation from Wi-Fi access points can stunt growth of common garden plants.
Heard about Folding@Home for desktops/laptops? Well, BIONIC is a new app that works along the same lines, just that it harnesses the processing power of your Android Smartphones and donates it to Science, making your phone a portable Folding@Home equivalent.
Network congestion has always been an issue and engineers have steadily been improving the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) algorithms to be more effective at handling the congestion. MIT have devised a computer system to write the algorithms itself.
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) will be hosting a Google+ "Hangout" with several panelists from several NASA centers on Tuesday July 23rd, 2013. The panelist will be talking about NASA's upcoming, unmanned hurricane research flights.
Four months ago when Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos and his crew at Bezos Expeditions went artifact hunting on the floor of the Atlantic Ocean, they knew they had found major components from two fired F-1 rocket engines. Now they have positively identified them.
Most people think of the Kinect as a device that is mostly only useful for waving your hands around when trying to get a game to do something, but the researchers at Microsoft Research Asia are using the device to give deaf people sign language access to computers.
In a recent press release, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has announced that a new moon was discovered orbiting around the planet of Neptune. The moon is approximately twelve miles in diameter making it the smallest for Neptune
In a effort to ensure that an important historical landmark is protected, and that the artifacts it contains are preserved, two United States House of Representatives have introduced a bill that would make the Apollo lunar landing site a protected national park.
While it's not specifically mobile, gadget or gaming tech, electronic giant Sharp Corporation is setting its sights on releasing a wide range of consumer appliances that employ artificial intelligence to communicate with the user though verbal commands and speech.
In a recent press release, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has announced that in collaboration with Aerojet Rocketdyne of West Palm Beach, Florida, they have completed testing a rocket engine injector make using a 3D printer.
Biometrics, the use of unique, distinguishable differences in out physical make-up to identify who we are, has been around for a long time. Fingerprints, full palm scanning, iris scanning and voice recognition are some of the ways. A team in India found another.
