Back in 2009, we heard about a 3D bio-printer that had been developed through a collaboration between Australian engineering firm Invetech, and Organovo, a San Diego-based regenerative medicine company.
The US army is working to limit its dependence on GPS by developing the next generation of navigation technology, including a tiny autonomous chip, the director of the Pentagon’s research agency said Wednesday. DARPA, the research group behind a r
A lack of accessible design tools is holding back 3-D printing.
NEW YORK CITY — For a slightly unconventional take on 3D printing, consider Mcor Technologies’ Iris Printer.
A team of Australian engineers at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) has demonstrated a quantum bit based on the nucleus of a single atom in silicon, promising dramatic improvements for data processing in ultra-powerful quantum computers of th
3D printers have been a hit with consumers for several years now, but designing anything for them still requires some basic knowledge of 3D modeling software.
Control of nuclear spin is key to a practical silicon quantum computer
President Obama said 3D printing "has the potential to revolutionize the way we make almost everything." So why not start with NASA? CNET's Sumi Das visits NASA Ames to look at how they're making space parts from 3D-printing machines.
Bone fibers contain an odd couple of gooey protein and crystallized mineral.
I really didn't think we were that close to space tourism, but apparently tickets will go on sale soon, at least after all the pesky little safety issues are dealt with.
Quantum computers promise to perform certain types of operations much more quickly than conventional digital computers
