High-speed cameras offer more than simply breath-taking slow motion captures of fast-moving events. Scientists and engineers often turn to these advanced imaging technologies to better understand rocket launches, lightning and viper strikes, and now researchers in Switzerland are now proffering such folks a brand new tool they say will work with any kind of camera...

Bacteria can be a huge problem in hospitals, where colonies can build up on instruments and cause potentially fatal infections in vulnerable patients. Now, researchers at Aston University have developed a new type of antimicrobial material that's made using a centuries-old stained glass technique... Continue Reading Medieval "stained glass" technique prevents bacterial infections Categor
While several decades of research have slowly been building a scientific case for the efficacy of fecal transplants as a treatment for a variety of conditions, there is still a lack of consensus over the best way to prepare and administer these fecal samples. A new Australian trial has revealed significant success in fecal transplants treating ulcerative colitis, pioneering a new stool pro
Danish design studio Flensted Mouritzen has created a running mould machine that makes sculptural plaster objects with mottled surfaces. Read more
An exciting new study from researchers at UC San Francisco has demonstrated how a new kind of CRISPR technique can increase the expression of certain genes, instead of the more traditional technique of actively cutting or editing DNA. The method was tested in mice by targeting two genes associated with hunger, with the animals reducing their food intake and not becoming obese... Continue R
An exciting new study suggests a single MRI scan can accurately predict whether a person will develop dementia up to three years before any cognitive symptoms are detectable. The prospective diagnostic tool is hoped to be able to better identify at-risk patients so preventative measures can be deployed to slow the onset of neurodegeneration...

A new study from the Telethon Kids Institute in Australia has revealed a possible association between intellectual disability and some specific forms of Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART). Experts are urging caution when interpreting these results as it is unclear exactly what may be causing the increased rates of intellectual disability... Continue Reading Experts urge caution over st
marie-t, named after the famous swedish ballet dancer of the romantic ballet era, helps ballerinas perfect the pointe technique. The post student develops prosthesis that helps ballerinas perfect technique appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
A fascinating new study from scientists at UCLA has proposed a novel strategy to help autistic individuals improve their ability to process visual information. The experimental technique, demonstrated in mice, found that certain dysfunctional cells in the visual cortex can be genetically "tuned" to better respond allowing improved visual and sensory learning abilities...

Freezing is one of the simplest methods of preserving food, biological tissue and other perishables, but the formation of ice crystals can damage cells. Now, researchers from Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) have developed a new way to "supercool" water and similar solutions to keep them in a liquid form well below the usual freezing point...
