Aug. 19, 2015 — New research could one day help build computers from DNA. Scientists have found a way to 'switch' the structure of DNA using copper salts and EDTA (Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid) -- an ... read more

Aug. 18, 2015 — Imagine staying dry underwater for months. Engineers have examined a variety of surfaces that can do just that -- and they know why. They have identified the ideal 'roughness' needed in a ... read more

Aug. 17, 2015 — Scientists have developed a brain-computer control interface for a lower limb exoskeleton by decoding specific signals from within the user's ... read more

Aug. 17, 2015 — A new world of flexible, bendable, even stretchable electronics is emerging from research labs to address a wide range of potentially game-changing uses. Over the last few years, one team of chemists ... read more

How to Preserve Fleeting Digital Information With DNA for Future Generations

Aug. 17, 2015 — Hand-written letters and old photos seem quaint in today's digital age. But there's one thing traditional media have over hard drives: longevity. Scientists are turning to nature's ... read more

Aug. 13, 2015 — Researchers have developed technology to squeeze materials with a million times the pressure of Earth's atmosphere while studying them with neutrons. When they bombard these materials with ... read more

Aug. 12, 2015 — Computer scientists have found that robots evolve more quickly and efficiently after a virtual mass extinction modeled after real-life disasters such as the one that killed off the dinosaurs. Beyond ... read more

Protons and Antiprotons Appear to Be True Mirror Images

Aug. 12, 2015 — In a stringent test of a fundamental property of the standard model of particle physics, known as CPT symmetry, researchers have made the most precise measurements so far of the charge-to-mass ratio ... read more

Flexible, Biodegradable Device Can Generate Power from Touch

Aug. 12, 2015 — Long-standing concerns about portable electronics include the devices' short battery life and their contribution to e-waste. One group of scientists is now working on a way to address both of ... read more

Aug. 11, 2015 — Researchers have created a prototype laundry-helper robot that is able to separate, stretch, smooth wrinkles and fold ... read more

Aug. 11, 2015 — Researchers have discovered a new way to levitate liquid droplets, which surprisingly also creates a mini light show, with the droplet sparking as it floats above a faint blue glowing gap. The ... read more

Aug. 11, 2015 — The first light-sensing system that reconstructs human postures continuously and unobtrusively has been developed by scientists, furthering efforts to create smart spaces in which people control ... read more

Aug. 6, 2015 — Crackpot idea or recipe for success? This is a question entrepreneurs often face. Is it worth converting the production process to a new, ecologically better material? Now developers have created an ... read more

Aug. 5, 2015 — Scientists have demonstrated for the first time how to generate magnetism in metals that aren't naturally magnetic, which could end our reliance on some rare and toxic elements currently used. ... read more

Aug. 5, 2015 — Researchers have succeeded in clearly identifying why droplets on soft, squishy surfaces react differently than on hard surfaces. A water droplet, for example, moves very differently over jelly than ... read more
