Search results for particles

Scientists in Singapore have come up with a new type of soft, pliable particle they say can be used as a building blocks for a new generation of green and biocompatible materials, all by using pollen as a starting point. These incredibly hard natural grains were turned into microgel-like substances using a process likened to soap-making, with the scientists hopeful they could one day find a home
There are many tools cancer relies on to survive and thrive, and therefore many possibilities when it comes to thwarting its advances. One such avenue centers on cellular garbage disposal units known as lysosomes, which are particularly vulnerable in cancer cells as opposed to healthy ones. And perhaps even more so now, with scientists in South Korea finding they can deliver a fatal blow to cance
Cache optimisation is one of the most hardcore, low-level topics in game programming. In this post I explain how our particle systems went from tons of cache misses to good memory coherence. ...
Researchers may have found a way to reduce the amount of fat absorbed by the body. Mixing food with specially engineered tiny silica particles has been seen to reduce the body's energy absorption of high-fat foods, and human trials are now underway.
in 'computations', maxim presents an experimental film that speculates a distant future when computation moves from the opaque ‘black boxes' of our electronic devices into the real world. The post computers burst into billions of particles in maxim zhestkov’s digital art film appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
One of the biggest mysteries of the universe is why its expansion seems to be speeding up. Physicists have attributed it to a strange force called dark energy, but exactly how it works is largely speculative. Hypothetical "chameleon" particles could be behind dark energy, and physicists at CERN have been searching for these particles streaming from the Sun. Now, the team has reported the f
Alzheimer's is a disease with a number of potential causes and therefore a number of potential targets for prevention. One of those centers on a protein call tau, which can gather in long tangles that kill off neurons in the brain. Scientists have developed what they describe as a vaccine to keep the brain clear of these dangerous clumps, and found that treating mice in this way helped sta
Nanothermometers, while not a brand new idea, are still at the cutting edge of science. We've seen impressive results to date, but accuracy and resolution can always improve, and this is what researchers from the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) in Australia believe they've achieved. ..

located inside a former oil reservoir, teamlab will exhibit five installations spread throughout the space, using digital technologies to convey natural wonders. The post teamlab fills former oil tanks with ‘digital universe of water particles’ in shanghai appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
Most robots are usually made to do one particular job, so they're not very adaptable to new situations. But that might change with a set of robots developed by researchers at MIT, Harvard, Columbia and Cornell Universities. These "particle robots," as the team calls them, are simple, circular devices that can connect to each other magnetically to move and work as a swarm...
