Researchers can accurately identify people using their brain waves

Yes, Brain Waves. For the longest time, the world has relied on fingerprints as a technique to easily identify individuals. It's because a fingerprint is unique (and permanent) for each individual—so what happens...
super fast camera at MIT

Blazingly-Fast Camera Can Capture Light as it Travels

A brand new camera developed at Massachusetts Institute of Technology can photograph a trillion frames per second. Compare that with a conventional film camera which takes a mere 24. This new development...

Graphene Could Massively Improve Thermal Imaging

Night-vision windshields on automobiles may someday be possible with advanced thermal imaging technology based on flexible, transparent, atomically thin sheets of carbon, researchers say. Thermal imaging lets people see the invisible infrared rays that...

Ants: Dual Nature – both solid and liquid like

Collections of ants have a outstanding capability to alter shapes and duties based on the demands of their surroundings. When floodwaters hit, they self-assemble and make rafts to stay alive. They will...

Graphene Converts Heat into Electrical Energy

Graphene, an allotrope of carbon, was first isolated at the University of Manchester in 2004 by Sir Andre Geim and Sir Kostya Novoselov. In 2010, they had been awarded the Nobel...

Buildings to be powered by Solar Windows

Manhattan has roughly forty seven thousand buildings with around 10.7 million windows, based on a 2013 estimate from The New York Times. Now think about if just 1%, that's 100,700, of these...

Sensitive stuff that goes boom, even if touched by a mosquito

When a feather drops on it, or a mosquito lands on top of nitrogen triiodide – Booom! – an instantaneous dark purple or violet explosion occurs. It's because nitrogen triiodide is...

Subatomic Particles that Appear to defy Standard Model Particle Physics

Subatomic particles have been discovered that seem to defy the Standard Model of particle physics. The team working at CERN's Large Hadron Collider have discovered proof of leptons decaying at completely...

Carbon nano fibres made from thin air

Scientists in the US have discovered a method to take carbon dioxide (CO2) from the air and make carbon nano fibres, a useful manufacturing material. Their solar-powered system runs a small current...
Lithium Ion cells

A small mistake helped scientists to quadruple battery lifespan

Until somebody figures out a alternative for lithium-ion in rechargeable batteries, research will continue into find out how to cram extra power inside as well as extending their useful lifespan. Two...
