Scientists could almost build a whole mini-body out of the mini-organs that have been grown over the last few years. But cell development has traditionally been tricky to study, thanks largely to the difficulty in getting sensors in there without damaging the organs. Now, researchers from Harvard have developed a way to create "cyborg organoids" by integrating nanoelectronics into cell cul
Researchers with Harvard University's John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) have published a study detailing the creation of a tiny camera that presents the world as it is seen by some insects and shrimp—polarized. Whereas humans are unable to see polarization, some tiny creatures are able to, an experience replicated by Harvard researchers with a small, portable camer
Architecture firm Barkow Leibinger has covered this experimental arts hub at Harvard University in polycarbonate panels to make it illuminate like a "lightbox at night". Read more
The Earth is the only place we know for sure harbors life, but given how big the observable universe is, the odds that we're completely alone are astronomical. It's been suggested in the past that life could hitch a ride on asteroids or comets to jump from world to world – a process known as panspermia – and now, a Harvard team has calculated just how likely that scenario would be througho
the one-story building is clad in insulated glass and polycarbonate panels. The post barkow leibinger designs harvard university’s artlab to be curated and adapted by its users appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
They don't call this the Information Age for nothing – nowadays we can access the entirety of humanity's collective knowledge from small computers in our pockets. But all that data has to be stored somewhere, and huge servers take up heaps of physical space and require huge amounts of energy. Now, researchers at Harvard have developed a new system for reading and writing information with o
Early last year, a team from the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) revealed a snake-inspired soft robot that harnessed kirigami, the ancient Japanese art of paper cutting, to create pop-up scales that allowed the robot to grip the ground and propel itself along as it stretches and contracts. Now some tweaks have given the robot boosts in both speed i

Harvard University has been sued over its licensing of daguerreotypes believed to be the first images of American slaves. The lawsuit was filed by Tamara Lanier, who says she is the direct descendant of Renty, the man featured alongside his daughter, Delia, in the daguerreotypes. The suit was filed on March 20 in the Middlesex County Superior Court.The daguerreotypes were commissioned in 1850 by is a social bookmarking place where you can share, find & discuss the best news around on most topics.
