The hissing sound you hear in the background when you turn up the volume of your music player is called "noise". Most of this hiss is due to the thermal motion of electrons in the music-player circuitry. Just like molecules ...
In the coming years, as more transistors are packed into ever smaller areas within computer chips, MIT engineers say cellphones, laptops, and other electronic devices may face a higher risk of overheating, as a result of ...
Researchers at the University of Alabama at Birmingham are exploring the concept of a wearable personal cloud—a fully functioning, yet compact and lightweight cloud computing system embedded into clothing.
Self-destructing electronic devices could keep military secrets out of enemy hands. Or they could save patients the pain of removing a medical device. Or, they could allow environmental sensors to wash away in the rain.
An Imperial engineering student showcases his equations as a set of beautiful diagrams and describes how they can be used to optimise processes.
Scientists at Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) have made an object disappear by using a composite material with nano-size particles that can enhance specific properties on the object's surface.
Magicians could join composers and artists in finding new ideas for their performances by using computers to create new magic effects, according to computer scientists at Queen Mary University of London (QMUL).
A graphene-based electrical nano-device has been created which could substantially increase the energy efficiency of fossil fuel-powered cars.
Data centres such as the ones used by Google and Facebook are the fundamental backbone for a range of services and applications including cloud and fog computing, big data, Internet of Things (IoT), social networking, weather ...
Researchers who developed an app that blocks third parties from identifying an individual's location based on what they search for online received a "best paper" award at a recent conference.
