Formula Drift driver Matt Powers has successfully driven his Roush Stage 3 Mustang at high speed in the real world while immersed in a 3D virtual world (via an Oculus Rift headset).
What if computers could take the words we type on the internet and convert them into a language that describes what they actually mean?
It has emerged that Google has filed a patent for a "smart teddy bear" that could listen to your conversations, watch your movements and control media devices.
Here come the designer babies. If you think the wealth gap is bad now, wait until all the elites start genetically modifying their offspring to run faster and jump higher than your kids…Talk about a breakaway civilization.
Electroluminescent (EL) panels are found in many electronics applications, particularly as backlighting for LCD displays, keypads, watches, and other areas requiring uniform, low-power illumination.
Or maybe it looks more like a peacock? Either way, what you see above is really what's known as a hyperlens, a metamaterial-based composite allowing for imaging beyond the diffraction limit.
Human milk counters impact of airborne pollutants
Elon Musk recently did an AMA on reddit. Here are three question-and-response pairs that I enjoyed, including how to build knowledge.
All living organisms – human, animal, or otherwise – continuously move molecules around their cells. It's a crucial mechanism of life, vital for feeding cells the proteins they need to function.
When Jordi Puig-Suari and Bob Twiggs began working on the first cubesat in 1999, their goal was a rather basic one -- to develop a compact satellite that university students could build and use to conduct scientific experiments and test out new tech
Dentistry, in some form or another, has been practiced for at least 9,000 years, although tooth extraction and remedies for tooth aches probably go back much further.
An 11-year-old boy receiving three degrees became the youngest graduate at American River College this year, by far.
Magnets are at the heart of much of our technology, and their properties are exploited in a myriad ways across a vast range of devices, from simple relays to enormously complex particle accelerators.
Imagine this scenario: Rita and Dennis are trying to have a baby. Rita is 41. Dennis is 39. They've been trying to conceive naturally for 15 months and have had one miscarriage.
Millions of staff and students at over 150 centers of further education were left without access to their online resources following a cyber-attack on the University of London Computer Centre.
Here's compelling evidence that ultrasound scans may be the real cause of autism. Look at the evidence and then decide.
A team of MIT and University of Michigan researchers has a new method for manufacturing graphene that it believes could take the material out of the laboratory and into commercial products.
A team of MIT scientists has combined graphene with a second, similarly structured material, producing a hybrid that can wield significant control over light waves.
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- From using cell phones and computers to watching movies online, wireless technology has made life easier. But now, some say there is a serious downside.
3D printing allows for creating unique and complex objects, but detailed, mechanical painting of such a diverse range of shapes has proven difficult. Water-transfer printing has been used for everything from car dashboards to press-on nails, but the
Elon Musk knows that Mars will not be terraformed in his lifetime. Still, the SpaceX and Tesla renaissance man does have a vague plan on how to seed life there:
Bone healing slows with age, but that process may one day be reversed
It's one of LG's most impressive displays of screen technology yet: a 55-inch OLED panel that's just 0.97mm thick and weighs just 1.9kg (4.1 pounds).
The microscopic "killer" cells that help us stay healthy have been captured on film with high resolution 4D imaging. Cytotoxic T cells (CTLs), found in our blood, target infectious cells such as cancer cells that might make us ill. Now researchers ha
All over the world, the heavy heads of opium poppies are nodding gracefully in the wind -- long stalks dressed in orange or white petals topped by a fright wig of stamens.
Scientists have figured out how to brew morphine using the same kit used to make beer at home.
Today's robots are mostly hard, rigid machines, with sharp edges and forceful movements
How many types of cells are there in the human body? Textbooks say a couple of hundred. But the true number is undoubtedly far larger.
Long-haul flights can a tedious and uncomfortable experience. If you're going to be stuck on plane for the best part of 12 hours or more, though, a touch of luxury may go some way to improving the experience.
