While it is evident robots come in many different types and shapes, the edible variety is not all that popular right now. That may soon come to change, though, thanks to some new edible gelatin robots capable of healing the body. Being able to eat a robot sounds a lot creepier than it really is, though. […]
In life, there are certain topics most people would rather avoid discussing. When it comes to performing surgery on human embryos, a lot of people would rather not give it a second thought. However, Chinese researchers may have found a way to remove diseases before a person is even properly born. It is a major breakthrough […]
This is how science, technology, engineering, mathematics research and projects may become accessible to everyone.
Scientific developments come in many strange and unusual forms. One particular team of researchers has successfully used bacteria to ventilate sweaty clothing. It is an interesting development many people will appreciate. Then again, does anyone want to run around with a shirt full of bacteria to begin with? The answer to that question remains unknown for […]
Drone technology can be used in many different ways. In fact, a lot of scientific research teams are working with this technology to conduct various environmental experiments. One of those experiments utilizes drones to monitor and detect shark activity across Australia’s shores. It has the potential to save lives in the long run. Australia’s coasts are notorious for […]
Human DNA is the blueprint for each and every one of us. This complex entity never ceases to amaze. According to new scientific research, DNA could one day be used to hack software programs. That may sound strange and scary at the same time, and it is both. This represents a major leap forward for science and technology, albeit one […]
The wonders of modern science know no bounds. Scientists in the U.S. have managed to grow brain cells from skin cells. They are now using tissue nanotransfection — also known as TNT — to grow brain cells on human skin. As a result, the skin can perform different functions, including boosting one’s cognitive abilities. Tissue Nanotransfection is […]
A startup incubator based in California is launching an initial coin offering aimed to raise up to $100 million to support a new blockchain program.
The concept of a human head transplant still sounds very strange to a lot of people. It has never been successfully done before and sounds more like science fiction than real life. Sergio Canavero is the surgeon set to perform this operation later this year. However, the original patient for the surgery has been replaced by someone […]
Teleportation has always been an interesting and controversial topic at the same time. Being able to transport an item -or a human- from point A to B instantly would be amazing. Chinese scientists have successfully teleported a photon from Earth to a satellite over 300 miles away. It may not be the “trick” most people expected, […]
The US military focuses a lot of its attention on a new brand of technology. Brain implants have always been of keen interest to military organizations all around the world. However, the goal is not to make super soldiers, but rather to treat blindness and deafness. This is an incredibly noble cause and will help improve […]
The Turkish Education Ministry has decided to remove evolution from biology textbooks and the curriculum of 9th graders. This backwards move has been received very poorly by many, and it is an example of a world that seems increasingly hostile to science and facts. If You Disagree With a Fact, Discredit It as Opinion The […]
In the world of biology, there are many different things we have yet to understand. Ants, for example, are one of the most ingenious species on the planet. Researchers have been baffled by how these insects find their way back to the nest and how this can be replicated. It appears using a tiny treadmill […]
Scientists all over the world are making some major breakthroughs as of late. A new experiment by researchers from the University of Texas shows how it is possible to clean oil spills with magnetic nanoparticles. This same technology can be used to remove lead from drinking water as well, with some modifications needing to be […]
When people think of robots, they envision metallic and large objects moving around. However, scientists are looking at a different solution in the form of a parasitic robot. They are currently trialing this parasitic guest as a way to control the turtle it is riding. It also rewards the turtle for following these commands. Turtles, […]
