MIT students, Oliver Yeh and Justin Lee, explain, build, and demonstrate their device that takes pictures of the Earth for less than $150.
A sensing surface developed by Microsoft researchers offers new ways to use computers.
The Remotely Operated and Autonomous Mapping System (ROAMS) creates maps using a rotating laser and camera.
Zhenan Bao, an associate professor of chemical engineering, and Christopher Bettinger, a postdoctoral fellow, show off the biodegradable electronics they make in their lab at Stanford University.
This robotic rehabilitation device from Northeastern University uses electrically responsive fluid in its gears to adjust resistance as a patient performs gripping exercises. A patient who is recovering from a stroke, for example, could use the device to strengthen motor control as she plays a maze game.
This device, one of several robotic rehabilitation tools from Northeastern University, adjusts a person’s gait as he walks.
This robotic rehabilitation device from Northeastern University is designed to let patients exercise hand and forearm muscles while in an MRI machine. Using a stroke-rehabilitation device in an MRI might let a doctor see the effects of the exercise on the brain.
This time-lapse video shows tightly packed balls of DNA being washed over a sequencing array. The array is designed so that the balls (white spots) stick to specific spots. The concentration of DNA balls that stick to the array increases over time. This tight packing of DNA strands decreases the amount of reagents needed in the sequencing reaction, lowering the cost of sequencing a genome.
Jeff Hrkach and Greg Troiano of BIND Biosciences explain how they make drug-delivering nanoparticles.
A continuously variable transmission could lead to cheaper wind power--if it is rugged enough.
