Digital recording binoculars aren't really new--there are some cheapie versions available--but Sony's new DEV-3 and DEV-5 binoculars lift that humble tech into some really impressive new places.
A dog can accurately detect the early presence of lung cancer by sniffing patients’ breath, doctors in Germany say.
With this week's announcement of Google's plan to buy Motorola Mobility, we took a look at the significant technology milestones in the company’s history.
Nanotube anodes could lead to higher-energy, faster-charging batteries for cell phones and notebooks.
The hunt for the most ancient example of life on Earth has a pungent new contender: Sulfur-belching microbes fossilized in 3.4-billion-year-old western Australian sandstone. The find bodes well for the search for life on Mars, researchers say.
A new computer chip will help tackle one of the Web's weak spots—the fact that most data is exchanged without any protection against hackers or eavesdroppers.
A small shove could prevent a global catastrophe, according to Chinese plans
The company thinks adding solar-thermal technology to its natural-gas plants will make them run more cheaply and efficiently
LifeNet lets computers and phones talk to each other without an Internet connection, which could come in handy after disasters that knock out communication networks.
In principle it should be possible to create a cloak that works for static magnetic fields – which are simply electromagnetic waves at zero frequency.
The high-voltage third rail that runs next to a set of train tracks is, of course, something to be avoided. The Third Rail System for the iPhone 4, however, is to be welcomed.
At AUVSI’s (Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International) massive robot conference in D.C. this week there is no shortage of robots designed to seek out--and in some cases destroy--human targets.
A snowy K-Mart parking lot would have worked fine. But this being Ferrari, and the star its tradition-shredding FF – a $300,000 all-wheel-drive station wagon -- a little high-altitude showboating seemed in order.
bike lanes and automatic traffic light sensors are great, but motorists are really the ones who have to pay attention for bike riders to be safe. An intrepid mechanical engineer has one solution: Make bike lights as obvious as car lights.
IBM has unveiled a new experimental computer chip that it says mimics the human brain in that it perceives, acts and even thinks.
General Motors has confirmed what we already told you: It will build a Cadillac plug-in hybrid using the Chevrolet Volt’s drivetrain, a move that further underscores its commitment to cars with cords.
An information-technology administrator has pleaded guilty to crippling his former employer’s network after FBI agents traced the attack to the Wi-Fi network at a McDonald’s restaurant in Georgia.
No one is claiming immediate responsibility for Wednesday’s hacking of the BART Police Officers Association’s website and publicizing personal information of union members who patrol the San Francisco region’s subway.
ld disappear if the United States lowered prevalence of middle-aged obesity and obesity-related chronic diseases such as diabetes and hypertension to European levels.
Approximately five drops of PEG-HA and straight HA were also injected under the belly skin of three human volunteers who were already undergoing tummy tucks. After 12 weeks, the PEG-HA implants were still intact. The volunteers did, however, report s
At TEDxMaastricht, Daniel Kraft offers a fast-paced look at the next few years of innovations in medicine, powered by new tools, tests and apps that bring diagnostic information right to the patient's bedside.
In the case of the United Nations, the hackers broke into the computer system of its secretariat in Geneva in 2008, hid there for nearly two years, and quietly combed through reams of secret data, according to McAfee. "Even we were surprised by t
My speculation is that we can end morbid obesity outright with application of the Arclein Diet protocol. Each fasting cycle induces at least twelve hours of rest for the intestine which then allows some recovery in terms of returning to its natural
Prof Taylor, director of the Materials Science Institute at the University of Oregon, said the findings suggest that crop circle artists may be using magnetrons, found in microwave ovens, or similar technology to complete their detailed patterns in t
The new flying ship from the Aeros Corporation is called an Aeroscraft, and is designed to carry more than 50 tons of cargo and make deliveries thousands of kilometers away. A demonstration model is being built outside Los Angeles, with funding f
But did Einstein's revolution go far enough? Physicist Lee Smolin at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, doesn't think so. He and a trio of colleagues are aiming to take relativity to a whole new level, and
Even if the metamaterial was able steer water around the vessel, there is a bigger problem: the more the water is steered, the more it will slow down. It is this change in velocity that is responsible for the frothy disturbance at a boat's wake. The
observed a new way that magnetic and electric properties - which have a long history of ignoring and counteracting each other - can coexist in a special class of metals. These materials, known as multiferroics, could serve as the basis for the next g
Two of the three patients who received doses of the designer T cells in a clinical trial have remained cancer-free for more than a year, the researchers said. Experts not connected with the trial said the feat was important because it suggested th
A new fabrication technique lets batteries use tin electrodes, and store more energy.
