Artificial muscle computer performs as a universal Turing machine
3D printing takes on metal at Amsterdam lab (w/ video)
Advanced techniques yield new insights into ribosome self-assembly
Ribosomes, the cellular machines that build proteins, are themselves made up of dozens of proteins and a few looping strands of RNA. A new study, reported in the journal Nature, offers new clues about how th ...
Using genetic algorithms to discover new nanostructured materials
Researchers at Columbia Engineering, led by Chemical Engineering Professors Venkat Venkatasubramanian and Sanat Kumar, have developed a new approach to designing novel nanostructured materials through an ...
Google Glass advocate to developers: Seize the moment (w/ video)
Research show mechanism behind wear at the atomic scale
(Phys.org)—Wear is a fact of life. As surfaces rub against one another, they break down and lose their original shape. With less material to start with and functionality that often depends critically on ...
Artificial molecular machine could hold key to more efficient manufacturing (w/ video)
An industrial revolution on a minute scale is taking place in laboratories at The University of Manchester with the development of a highly complex machine that mimics how molecules are made in nature.
