Human eye inspires clog-free ink jet printer invention
Clogged printer nozzles waste time and money while reducing print quality. University of Missouri engineers recently invented a clog-preventing nozzle cover by mimicking the human eye.
Omron sensor can do security and hot-soup checks (w/ Video)
Glasses-free 3-D TV looks nearer (w/ Video)
As striking as it is, the illusion of depth now routinely offered by 3-D movies is a paltry facsimile of a true three-dimensional visual experience. In the real world, as you move around an object, your perspective ...
Finland team uses Earth's magnetic field for phone indoor positioning system
Most accurate robotic legs mimic human walking gait (w/ Video)
A group of US researchers has produced a robotic set of legs which they believe is the first to fully model walking in a biologically accurate manner.
Robot vision: Muscle-like action allows camera to mimic human eye movement
Using piezoelectric materials, researchers have replicated the muscle motion of the human eye to control camera systems in a way designed to improve the operation of robots. This new muscle-like action could ...
Smart headlights let drivers see between the raindrops
Researchers develop technique to focus light inside biological tissue
Imagine if doctors could perform surgery without ever having to cut through your skin. Or if they could diagnose cancer by seeing tumors inside the body with a procedure that is as simple as an ultrasound. ...
Engineers build 50 gigapixel camera
By synchronizing 98 tiny cameras in a single device, electrical engineers from Duke University and the University of Arizona have developed a prototype camera that can create images with unprecedented detail.

Radiation-resistant circuits from mechanical parts can survive in space, damaged nuclear plants
University of Utah engineers designed microscopic mechanical devices that withstand intense radiation and heat, so they can be used in circuits for robots and computers exposed to radiation in space, damaged ...
Wireless 'tooth tattoo' detects harmful bacteria
Using silk strands pulled from cocoons and gold wires thinner than a spider's web, researchers at Princeton University have created a removable tattoo that adheres to dental enamel and could eventually monitor ...
