Researchers from ETH Zurich are building a tall architectural structure that will evoke the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, in a project that involves working collaboratively with robots. Read more
If the idea of living robots made out of frog cells isn't quite weird enough for you, how about living robots made out of frog cells with the ability to reproduce? These first-of-a-kind "Xenobots" are not just a marvel of modern bioengineering that could open up exciting possibilities in regenerative medicine, but also represent a type of biological reproduction never before observed in science.C
Quantum computers could one day blow boring old classical computers out of the water, but so far their complexity limits their usefulness. Engineers at Stanford have now demonstrated a new relatively simple design for a quantum computer where a single atom is entangled with a series of photons to process and store information.Continue ReadingCategory: Computers, TechnologyTags: Quantum, Quantum C
Scientists at Australia's Monash University claim to have made a critical breakthrough in green ammonia production that could displace the extremely dirty Haber-Bosch process, with the potential to eliminate nearly two percent of global greenhouse emissions.Continue ReadingCategory: Energy, ScienceTags: Ammonia, Alternative Energy, Agriculture, Climate Solutions: Shipping
