The problem has recently started to enter the public consciousness with calls for bans of the ubiquitous plastic drinking tubes. At least one major source of the probl
Things are looking very unpleasant for NASA's Opportunity rover as the dust storm raging on Mars is officially classed as "global." Mission control has been out of contact with the unmanned explorer for over a week despite repeated attempts by NASA's Deep Space Network (DSN) to find a signal that Opportunity is programmed to transmit each Martian morning. Meanwhile, the dust blotting out t
The race is currently on to develop an effective and simple diagnostic tool to help identify patients suffering from mild cognitive impairment (MCI). A new study is suggesting that a simple at-home test, administered through a laptop or smartphone, could accurately diagnose cases of MCI, allowing for early interventions to help prevent further cognitive decline...

Chameleons are able to change color via a layer of skin cells known as iridophores, which contain nanocrystals. As the lizards stretch or relax their skin, the spacing between those crystals changes, altering the manner in which they reflect light. Now, scientists have designed a color-changing nanolaser that works the same way... Continue Reading Nanolaser changes color, just like a chame

Last year, startup RnD64 launched a portable digital guitar called the Jammy that slid out from 12.6 inches long during transit to nearly 20 inches for play. It was certainly an odd-looking strum machine, but had real strings and stretched out to normal guitar length.
