Warping photos could help text-based communications become more expressive.
Researchers report using metamaterials to make devices that could transform computing, data storage, and optical microscopy.
PC users can be as neat or as messy as they like using a new 3-D computer interface based on video-game technology. But can the new software revitalize the creaky desktop metaphor?
Researchers have shown that they can use mechanical force to make a molecule more reactive.
Flash memory is moving from iPods to desktops and laptops, providing a performance boost and the potential for instant boot-ups.
A new computer model could significantly advance nanoscale engineering.
Kenneth Crozier and Federico Capasso have created light-focusing optical antennas that could lead to DVDs that hold hundreds of movies.
Richard Baraniuk and Kevin Kelly believe compressive sensing could help devices such as cameras and medical scanners capture images more efficiently.
Artificially structured metamaterials could transform telecommunications, data storage, and even solar energy, says David R. Smith.
