Workers dragged Forbidden City stones along roads of artificial ice
Brain-inspired synaptic transistor learns while it computes
(Phys.org) —It doesn't take a Watson to realize that even the world's best supercomputers are staggeringly inefficient and energy-intensive machines.
University team has AR See-Through System for safe driving (w/ Video)
MIT team shows system that tracks people through walls
Research team develops tattoo-like skin thermometer patch
Gel-based audio speaker demonstrates capabilities of ionic conductors, long thought limited in application (w/ Video)
In a materials science laboratory at Harvard University, a transparent disk connected to a laptop fills the room with music—it's the "Morning" prelude from Peer Gynt, played on an ionic speaker.
The walls have ears: Princeton researchers develop walls that can listen, and talk
(Phys.org) —Using a modern twist on a technology developed in the 1920s, researchers at Princeton University have embedded ultrathin radios directly on plastic sheets, which can be applied to walls and ...
New approach assembles big structures from small interlocking pieces
MIT researchers have developed a lightweight structure whose tiny blocks can be snapped together much like the bricks of a child's construction toy. The new material, the researchers say, could revolutionize ...
Wireless devices go battery-free with new communication technique
(Phys.org) —We might be one step closer to an Internet-of-things reality. University of Washington engineers have created a new wireless communication system that allows devices to interact with each other ...
