The robotic wheelchair senses the topography of a surface and decides whether to roll across it, or walk.
Next year, medical researchers will test in patients a one-of-a-kind brain implant that can sense electrical activity in the brain while simultaneously emitting electric pulses, says device developer Medtronic.
Gesture control, devices that recognize different people, and tricks to make a screen feel as if it has physical buttons could be coming to your gadgets.
One of the first tasks the Navy expects to assign its forthcoming arsenal of laser guns: shooting down drones that menace its ships.
The solar-powered rover is a contender for the $30 million Google Lunar X Prize.
In 1962, 50 years ago today, Nick Holonyak Jr. and his team at GE invented the Light Emitting Diode.
Nick Holonyak was sure the LED would replace the incandescent light bulb when he presented it to GE executives 50 years ago.
Bloodhound SSC is the ambitious program to smash the land speed record. But is it also the ultimate in open source, as the director says the team will make all of its data free and open and vows to keep it patent-free. Photo: Bloodhound
One robot isn't so smart, but get enough of them together and they can complete a complex mission.
We're still seeing products guaranteeing the truly immersive experience videogames have always promised--but why don't we have them by now?
This type of system has the potential to allow users to design or download a specific wire-based project and precisely create its individual components. And it creates the possibility to create skeletal frameworks for 3-D printers to build on
Modeled after a Nerf gun--but with 200,000 volts under the hood
By this point, prototyping machines like 3-D printers have taken their place alongside hammers, sewing machines and screwdrivers on the DIYer’s tool bench.
It has long been possible to make a gun at home. But what happens when it no longer takes knowledge and skill to build one?

As promised, I have been constructing my own laboratory and equipping it to provide me with ‘Original Discovery’. Please let me share what I mean.
There have always been criticisms of existing IP laws and policies and many calls for "reform." But I became opposed not just to "ridiculous" patents and "outrageous" IP lawsuits, but to patent and copyright per se. Patent and copyright law should be
We introduced 3D printing to people in a sensational way, it garnered some attention and will probably allow us to accomplish our goal. That really explains what we did.
Bitcoin is a new digital currency that allows you to send money like you send an email – to anyone, anywhere, anytime – without going through a bank or corporation or government. Bitcoin operates completely peer-to-peer, like gold and silver, but it
The history of The Industrial Age can be traced rather well by following the history of firearms development. For throughout Man's history, almost all new technological developments have been either related to or directly stemmed from war-fighting sc
Before the days of high-speed internet and even dial-up AOL, there was an "online" world of communication that many people today have no idea existed. A much more decentralized way of communicating "online" that could be argued to have significantly
Kickstarter is a funding platform for creative projects. Everything from films, games, and music to art, design, and technology. Kickstarter is full of ambitious, innovative, and imaginative projects that are brought to life through the direct suppor
We need to come together and connect our home laboratories in a way that truly fosters powerful collaboration and crowd-sourcing. We can cooperatively achieve amazing things together.
