In this video, a camera rests atop an ordinary car. Software developed by researchers at ETH Zurich and Toyota rapidly identifies pedestrians and other vehicles.
Robotic cars navigate around a miniature city created by researchers at Boston University while observing traffic rules and avoiding collisions.
This robot, Adelopod, was created by researchers at the University of Minnesota. It tumbles over itself--a simple, low-power way to get around.
A new way to change the electronic properties of graphene could lead to ultrafast circuits.
An elastic conductor makes possible cheap, conformable displays.
Turning pixels on their side may finally mean high-quality color electronic paper.
Researchers demonstrate a new way to refine magnetic control of tiny robotic pushers.
Researchers control microscopic magnets individually by manipulating magnetic and electric fields. The magnets could one day be used to assemble microscopic structures or deliver drugs to a cell.
The Kindle DX may be better suited to reading textbooks and newspapers, but is it just too big?
