Lasers are one of the tools physicians can lean on to tackle plaque buildup on arterial walls, but current approaches carry a risk of complications and can be limited in their effectiveness. By bringing ultrasound into the mix, scientists at the University of Kansas have demonstrated a new take on this treatment that relies on exploding microbubbles to destroy plaque with greater safety and effic
Chopping down trees and processing the wood isn’t the most efficient or environmentally friendly way to make furniture or building materials. Scientists at MIT have now made breakthroughs in a process that could one day let us 3D print and grow wood directly into the shape of furniture and other objects.Continue ReadingCategory: Materials, ScienceTags: Wood, Plants, 3D Printing, 3-D+Printing, MIT

The LiDAR- and cage-equipped Elios 3 quadcopter was designed with that challenge in mind.Continue ReadingCategory: Drones, TechnologyTags: Mapping, LIDAR, Quadcopter
Because seeds may contain yield-reducing fungi, bacteria or viruses, they're often chemically treated before they're sold to farmers. A new mobile system, however, substitutes microbe-killing electrons for harsh and eco-unfriendly chemicals.Continue ReadingCategory: Environment, ScienceTags: Fraunhofer, Agriculture, Crops, Plants, Electrons, Antibacterial, Fungus
Researchers at Northwestern University in Illinois have demonstrated the world's smallest remote-controlled walking robot, at just half a millimeter wide. Such tiny machines can bend, twist, crawl, walk, turn and jump without hydraulics or electricity.Continue ReadingCategory: Robotics, TechnologyTags: Northwestern University, Crabs, Robotics, Remote-Control, Miniature, Shape Memory Alloys
