The Journal of the Society for Information Display published an article listing the top ten electronic paper devices that consumers can expect over the next 20 years.
Research scientists from Fraunhofer have created a small luminous cube made up of microscopically small nanostructured arrays of lenses that can record or project amazingly sharp images in brilliant colors.
In an about-face move, IBM has revealed that graphene can't fully replace silicon inside CPUs reports Bit-tech, a UK-based hardware enthusiast site. The reason? A graphene transistor can't actually be completely switched off.
Researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology have announced that, using inexpensive components from a liquid crystal display (LCD) projector, they're able to control the brain circuits in tiny laboratory animals, including freely moving worms.
Researchers have used metamaterials to create a new acoustic cloak, a technology that renders underwater objects invisible to sonar and other ultrasound waves.
One of the tracks today at Dreamforce in San Francisco had nothing to do with cloud computing, mobile apps, or new developer platforms. It did however, cover an important and controversial topic that impacts everyone, which is healthcare.
Think you are a cutting edge techie? Think again. Thomas McCabe is the Director and Program Coordinator of Humanity+, a nonprofit dedicated to the ethical use of technology to extend human capabilities. The organization is holding a conference this weekend at Caltech in Los Angeles.
The U.S. Army's long-awaited, experimental 25mm airburst weapon is headed for battlefields in Afghanistan this month. Labeled a "game-changer," the $35,000 high-tech rifle is capable of firing explosive bullets that can detonate front of or behind a target.
Researchers at Purdue and the University of Manitoba have developed software that enables users to use tabletop-sized touch displays interactively over the Internet.
With priorities and principles anchored in good design, BERG and Dentsu London, teamed up to create films depicting how future media surfaces could work.
Research from Penn State indicates that specialization trumps generalization when it comes to the trustworthiness of online technology. The findings could be of consequence to e-commerce developers and product designers who routinely develop multi-purpose technology to suit a range of functions.
Researchers from Queen's University Belfast are working on wearable sensors that can make people the backbone of powerful new mobile internet networks.
Researchers at the University of California, Santa Barbara are aiming for 1 Terabit Ethernet over optical fiber -- 1 trillion bits per second -- by 2015 and 100 Terabit Ethernet by 2020.
Over half a millennium ago, Leonardo da Vinci sketched the first human-powered ornithopter. For centuries since, engineers have attempted to build a human-powered aircraft with flapping wings. Now, a University of Toronto PhD candidate made aviation history with the first ornithopter of its kind to fly continuously.
