20.04.2010 Increased Speed and Reliability of Smart Sensors
In military and security situations, a split second can make the difference between life and death, so North Carolina State University's development of new "smart sensors" that allow for faster response times from military applications is important. Equally important is new research from NC State that will help ensure those sensors will operate under extreme conditions
27.05.2010 Computer viruses able to affect humans?
A scientist at the University of Reading has become the first person in the world to be infected by a computer virus.
Dr Mark Gasson, from the School of Systems Engineering, contaminated a computer chip which had been inserted into his hand as part of research into human enhancement and the potential risks of implantable devices.
10.06.2010 Major advance in heat transfer and cooling technologies
Researchers at Oregon State University and the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory have discovered a new way to apply nanostructure coatings to make heat transfer far more efficient, with important potential applications to high tech devices as well as the conventional heating and cooling industry.
28.06.2010 Noodle highway for cells promises better tissue regeneration
A big question in regenerative medicine is how to most effectively deliver stem cells -- as well as other beneficial cells, proteins and large molecules -- to damaged tissues such as the spinal cord, heart and brain.
18.07.2010 What Happens When You Make a Flame Thrower, Pen and Tuning Fork 10,000 Times Smaller Than a Human Hair?
In the 1989 film Honey I Shrunk the Kids, a nutty scientist invents a machine that miniaturizes objects. Fast forward 20 years and scientists at the University of Utah are using miniaturized tools in...
