In the quest to improve on the lithium-ion batteries that power today's mobile devices and electric vehicles, lithium-metal batteries hold a lot of potential. Although they promise to hold much more energy per charge, they do have shortcomings in their current form, particularly when it comes to safety. Engineers at Northwestern University are now claiming to have overcome these failings by m

And it only gets weirder when it's coupled with the feeling that a person can predict what's about to come next. To investigate the mysterious phenomenon, cognitive psychologist Anne Cleary has developed a technique to indu
To help hunt down elusive iron meteorites in Antarctica, the University of Manchester recently tested its new towable metal detectors at the British Antarctic Survey (BAS) NERC Arctic research station at Ny-Ålesund on the Island of Spitsbergen in Norway deep in the Arctic Circle. The test was small, but it's part of the first ever British-led meteorite hunting expedition in Antarctica that wi
At its most basic, the Modular Fiddle can be played like any other violin. But creator David Perry designed this instrument to explore the many different physical component shapes and tones made possible with 3D printing...
