Researchers from the University of Manchester and University of Sheffield have developed a new prototype semi-transparent, graphene-based LED device that could form the basis of flexible screens for use in the next-generation of mobile phones, tablet
By 2010, the cancer had spread to Patrick's lungs and he was buckling under the weight of a debilitating chemotherapy regimen and the growing fear that he might not survive. The article, headlined "Hallucinogens Have Doctors Tuning in Again," m
THE NEUROSCIENCE OF APPETITE IS TOTALLY WEIRD
When the user steps down onto their heel, the shocks are compressed and the rear section of the sole folds up against the underside of the foot. As they stride forward and transfer their weight up to the ball of their foot, the shocks expand again. S
The secretive US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is developing a device that will plug directly into the brain and transmit images, bypassing the optical system altogether, according to reports.
As a kid, Ela Darling fell in love with the idea of virtual reality.
The ancient deposit could be good news for tech companies
The vast plume was initially spotted by amateur astronomers in 2012, and appeared twice before vanishing.
When I first began writing this article I was going to call it, "Why this is the most important time in the history of the Universe," to continue the discussion that Jeff started and to perhaps help clarify and share further information on her wo
here are 374 experimental cancer drugs in mid-stage trials, according to the IMS Institute for Healthcare Informatics' global outlook report published last year. The costs are steep. Most of these drugs have annual costs of $150,000, and a slate of
Paul Rosenberg knows a lot about a lot of things.
A large scale version of the Empire's space station has been installed at LEGOLAND California near San Diego. LEGO Death Star is part of the theme park's Star Wars Miniland attraction.
As cool and wonderful as Lego is, those plastic bricks can be tricky to handle if you want to step up from mere constructive play into serious custom-built prototyping.
US scientists and legal experts are calling for a strong, international authority to regulate any man-made interventions meant to combat global warming, amid fears that the technology could be harmful to the environment.
A tiny device in new contact lenses, aimed at hundreds of thousands of people suffering from age-related eye problems, could increase user's vision nearly three fold
It's a march of the planets in the most beautiful way imaginable.
How many licks does it take to get to the center of a lollipop?
Telomeres are the caps at the ends of our chromosomes that protect the DNA code of the genome. Linked to aging and disease, they are 8,000 to 10,000 nucleotides long in young people, but this decreases as we age (a nucleotide is an organic molecule t
The basis of this new view is blindingly obvious once it is pointed out: everyone feels miserable when they are ill. That feeling of being too tired, bored and fed up to move off the sofa and get on with life is known among psychologists as sickness
There appears to be many potential benefits to patient outcome from using nanotechnology in dentistry.
Scientific experiments involving teleportation and other telekinetic abilities are reviewed in a research paper commissioned by the U.S. Air Force and written by astrophysicist Dr. Eric W. Davis in 2004, titled simply "Teleportation Physics Study.
Inside Novartis's push to produce the first legitimate anti-aging drug
By altering metal alloy at a nanoscale level, researchers at the Graduate Institute of Ferrous Technology (GIFT) at Pohang University of Science and Technology in South Korea have created a new material that has the strength of steel and the lightnes
The future of space travel is all about reusability
Graphene is extremely strong for its weight, it's electrically and thermally conductive, and it's chemically stable ... but it isn't magnetic. Now, however, a team from the University of California, Riverside has succeeded in making it so. The res
Last week's Wearable Technologies Conference in Munich showcased the future of cutting edge wearable design.
Harnessing the power of aural navigation
Dr. Johanna Budwig left us in 2003, at the age of 95. This German doctor was nominated six times for the Nobel Prize for medicine, which means that it would be wise to take her health work seriously. We call her a saint, but doctors-in-the-know thoug
t's going to be a huge leap over the flat-screen computing that we've all become used to over the past 30 years. It's so much obviously better that once people try it, there will be no going back. Augmented Versus Virtual This was the second t
Groundbreaking scientific research has been published on carbon nanotube fiber with high thermal and electrical conductivity.
