New high-speed camera system reveals what snow looks like in midair
University of Utah researchers developed a high-speed camera system that spent the past two winters photographing snowflakes in 3-D as they fell – and they don't look much like those perfect-but-rare snowflakes ...
Algorithm recovers speech from vibrations of potato-chip bag filmed through soundproof glass
Researchers at MIT, Microsoft, and Adobe have developed an algorithm that can reconstruct an audio signal by analyzing minute vibrations of objects depicted in video. In one set of experiments, they were ...

Japanese universities develop new world's fastest camera
The trillion-frame-per-second camera
When a crystal lattice is excited by a laser pulse, waves of jostling atoms can travel through the material at close to one sixth the speed of light, or approximately 28,000 miles/second. Scientists now have ...

World Cup debut for 'unhackable' goal technology
Goalline technology will be used at a World Cup for the first time in Brazil with its backers insisting it is 100 percent accurate and cannot be hacked.
High-speed imaging captures raindrops releasing clouds of aerosols on impact
Ever notice an earthy smell in the air after a light rain? Now scientists at MIT believe they may have identified the mechanism that releases this aroma, as well as other aerosols, into the environment.
Protein harnesses power of 'silly walks'
The 'stiff-legged' walk of a motor protein along a tightrope-like filament has been captured for the first time.
World's fastest camera relies on new type of imaging, takes 6 million frames per second
Ultrafast, light-sensitive video cameras are needed for observing high-speed events such as shockwaves, communication between living cells, neural activity, laser surgery and elements of blood analysis. To catch such elusive ...
