A new three-finger "extensor" will help divers manipulate objects as easily in water as in air. Just like a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle.
A new laser weapon Boeing is developing for the U.S. Army cleared a major test by cutting through fog to destroy enemy targets.
A team of biohackers is attempting to modify the human sensory spectrum.
When a tornado's heading your way, the best thing you can do is to go your basement or better yet, to a purpose-built storm shelter.
Cannabis/marijuana is presently on the DEA's Schedule 1 list. Since 1972, cannabis has been listed on the Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act, the most tightly restricted category reserved for drugs which have "no currently accepted medi
But beginning around 2006, Bardeen and other scientists exploring new ways to boost the solar-energy conversion rates of photovoltaic panels began taking a renewed interest in singlet fission. In recent years, experiments conducted by Bardeen's gro
The politics of cannabis are exceedingly complex, and yet the truth is simple: this freely growing plant heals the human body – not to mention provides food, fuel, clothing and shelter, if only we will let it perform its birthright. In a previous a
New Zealand's Duke Engines has been busy developing and demonstrating excellent results with a bizarre axial engine prototype that completely does away with valves, while delivering excellent power and torque from an engine much smaller, lighter and
The problem with nuclear waste is that it needs to be stored for many thousands of years before it's safe, which is a tricky commitment for even the most stable civilization.
The world of medicine is being transformed by 3D printing technology.
Boeing is building a laser cannon for the U.S. Army, and the new weapon has now proved it will be as capable at sea as on land.
John Martinis is one of the world's foremost experts on quantum computing, a growing field of science that aims to process information at super high speeds using strange physics of very tiny particles such as electrons and photons.
GE is looking to a new generation of carbon-fiber composites to make the fan blades for its GE9X jet engine.
Today?s computers can be traced back at least to Blaise Pascal?s 1642 mechanical calculator. The modern era in computing started with the unveiling of ENIAC on February 15, 1946. The development of the transistor in 1948 enabled the creation of integ
Why is there something instead of nothing? In other words: Why does the universe exist (and why are we in it)? Philosopher and writer Jim Holt follows this question toward three possible answers. Or four. Or none
Propane is an appealing fuel, easily stored and already used worldwide, but it's extracted from the finite supply of fossil fuels ? or is it?
Flesh and titanium merge via a design inspired by deer antlers.
But the cumbersome experimental setup won't replace Facebook's Messenger app anytime soon.
My 88 year old father, sufferer of skin cancer, two melanomas, and prostate cancer made the empowering decision to take his health back. Without my guidance, he found your website. Now on a clean diet, iodine supplementation, Magnesium oil, using you
This caused the gold to release electrons which damaged the cancer cells' DNA along with its overall structure, intensifying the impact of the chemotherapy drug in the process. Apparently the technique was so effective that the cell culture sho
Tel Aviv-based start up Effective Space Solutions claims that its DeOrbiter microsatellites could not only be used to dispose of defunct geosynchronous satellites, but could also rescue a pair of errant Galileo satellites currently trapped in the wro
Failing memory is one of the (many) drawbacks of old age, but can also impact younger people suffering stroke, early-stage Alzheimer's disease, traumatic brain injury and cardiac arrest.
Scripps paleooceanographer Richard Norris describes the mystery of sliding rocks in Death Valley.
The ICE Flexible LED screens are a revolutionary new patented concept in large screen digital format display technology.
For tinkerers and people who love programming complicated projects, devices like the Raspberry Pi and Arduino are amazing, but for those without technical knowledge, they can be a terrifying proposition.
A new emissions-free device created by scientists at Stanford University uses an ordinary 1.5-volt battery to split water into hydrogen and oxygen at room temperature, potentially providing a low-cost method to power fuel cells in zero-emissions vehi
Scientists at the University of Edinburgh have grown a fully-functional organ inside a mouse; opening the possibility of one day manufacturing compatible organs for transplant without the need for donors.
Tesla's critically acclaimed all-electric Model S sedan can travel roughly 265 miles on a single charge, according to the EPA, but CEO Elon Musk last month said "it will be possible to have a 500-mile range car," adding "in fact, we could do it quite
In what may be one of the most mind-bogglingly surreal experiments ever floated, scientists at the US Department of Energy's Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab) will attempt to discover if the universe is "real" or merely a holographic 3
IT TAKES chutzpah to tweet "rockets are tricky" shortly after one you have just launched has deliberately blown itself up.
