Need some new muscle? We’ll print that for you. In a tremendous stride forwards for the field of regenerative medicine, researchers in the U.S. have managed to invent a 3D printer capable of churning out human-scale, living tissues that survived and integrated when implanted into an animal. While it’s still early days, the team demonstrated that the tissues developed the right strength and function required for human application, raising the possibility that the technique could one day be used to help people whose tissue has been damaged by disease or trauma.
An incredible stellar system has been found where two stars are so close that their surfaces are overlapping. It is the hottest and most massive double star system ever seen, and provides a rare glimpse into what is believed to be a relatively brief cosmic event.
Tesla drivers in North America will be able to update their car software to include an “autopilot” mode. The new feature does not turn cars into completely self-driving machines, but it does aim to help drivers in dangerous situations as well as relieve them from some of the tedious stages of driving.
The tungsten lightbulb has served well over the century or so since it was introduced, but its days are numbered now with the arrival of LED lighting, which consume a tenth of the power of incandescent bulbs and have a lifespan 30 times longer. Potential uses of LEDs are not limited to illumination: smart lighting products are emerging that can offer various additional features, including linking your laptop or smartphone to the internet. Move over Wi-Fi, Li-Fi is here.
With current technology, the shortest journey from Europe to Sydney is around 30 hours. That's more than an entire day devoted to traveling. However, German space agency DLR has added their own solution to our slow travel problem: the SpaceLiner.
IBM researchers have been working on building a chip since 2008 that works like the neurons inside your brain. And they’ve just announced an exciting breakthrough. Scientists have developed a system that is made up of 48 million artificial nerve cells, which is about what you'd find in the brain of a small rodent.
Diamonds may be a girl's best friend, but physicists are not far behind. Researchers have succeeded in using a diamond to concentrate a flash of light into a laser beam. While this may have been done before, no one has ever done so with such brilliance. The laser is 20 times more powerful than previous diamond lasers and even has enough power to cut through steel. Talk about outshining one's competition.
It is easy to get lost in a sea of information when looking at cybersecurity issues. And hearing about hacks and cyberattacks as they happen is a surefire way to feel helpless and totally disempowered.
In the years since the world started going digital, one of the big changes has been that we don’t need to remember very much. Why risk forgetting a partner’s birthday or a dinner date with a close friend when you can commit the details to your computer, laptop, smartphone or tablet and get a reminder at the appropriate time?
Is it a bird? Is it a plane?… Or a helicopter? Or both?! Technically at this stage it is neither – it's a concept. But here is how it is proposed to work: Using three ducted fans, the TriFan 600 lifts off vertically, in a similar manner to a helicopter. But after takeoff, the craft's wing fans rotate forward, allowing it to then fly like a plane. The process reverses on landing. This new and unusual hybrid of helicopter and plane motion technology allows the craft to take off and land without the need for runways or open space.
The world of prosthetic hands is becoming more and more sophisticated. However, they are sometimes simply too expensive. This is especially the case for children, who often need a new hand every year as they grow. Not having use of one extremity is exceptionally restrictive, so Open Bionics set out to find a way to make a bionic hand quickly and cheaply.
Ah, fusion power. Holy grail of our energy problems. The savior of life on Earth. Our key to the stars. Source of power for Tony Stark's Iron Man. But the only problem is that people have been saying this for many, many years (except the Iron Man bit). Fusion power always seems like it’s just on the horizon before, a few years later, we seem to be back to square one again.
