Hunt for an unidentified electron object

Researchers have developed a new mathematical framework capable of describing motions in superfluids – low temperature fluids that exhibit classical as well as quantum behavior. The framework was used to lift the veil of mystery surrounding strange objects in superfluid helium (detected ten years ago at Brown University). Show More Summary

Motion and muscles don't always work in lockstep, researchers find in surprising new study

RIVERSIDE, Calif. — Animals "do the locomotion" every day, whether it's walking down the hall to get some coffee or darting up a tree to avoid a predator. And until now, scientists believed the inner workings of movement were prettyShow More Summary

BlackBerry's identity crisis continues

To say that BlackBerry's had it tough these past few years would be putting it mildly, if not too delicately for a company emerging from a period of willful ignorance. The Waterloo-based outfit, formerly known as Research in Motion, played an...

Tim Cook to climate deniers: get bent

2 years agoHumor : Boing Boing

The National Center for Public Policy Research, group of climate deniers with stock in Apple, tried to force a motion to terminate Apple's use of renewable energy (and failed miserably).

Replicating motions of the heart: Artificial muscles that do the twist set the stage for soft robotics

Researchers have developed a low-cost, programmable soft actuated material that they used to replicate the complex motion of the heart, along with a matching 3-D computer model. The advance sets the stage for new possibilities in the emerging field of soft robotics.

Medical researchers use light to quickly and easily measure blood's clotting properties

This video shows the rapid "twinkling" or intensity fluctuations of the speckle pattern in a drop of unclotted whole blood. The rapid "twinkling" is due to the fast thermally-driven motion of blood cells that scatter light. read mor...

CamNtech Receives FDA Clearance for Wrist-Worn Motion Tracker and Diary

CamNtech has received FDA approval for two wrist-worn products to monitor patient activity for clinical purposes and in research trials. First is the MotionWatch 8, a small and light-weight waterproof wrist-worn device that uses a digital tri-axial accelerometer to monitor patient activity, similarly to many consumer fitness trackers.

The Explosion Of Global Smartphone Shipments In One Chart

Last year the number of smartphones shipped worldwide passed 1 billion for the first time, according to IDC, a research firm. In 2010 the four leading smartphone vendors, Nokia, Research In Motion (now BlackBerry), Apple and Samsung, represented four different operating systems. Show More Summary

The symphony of life, revealed: New imaging technique captures vibrations of proteins, tiny motions critical to human life

Like the strings on a violin or the pipes of an organ, the proteins in the human body vibrate in different patterns, scientists have long suspected. Now, a new study provides what researchers say is the first conclusive evidence that this is true.

Mike Lazaridis has sold 3.5 million shares of the BlackBerry $ 26 million

Co-founder of BlackBerry (former Research in Motion) Mike Lazaridis sold a large stake pact. On Monday, he got rid of the 3.5 million shares of a total value of 26 million dollars. Thus as a result, its share declined 5.68% stake in the company to 4.99% of the shares. Show More Summary

3D Technology helps stroke victims' rehab

Sometimes, simple solutions to problems turn up in unlikely places. Researchers from Sweden are drawing inspiration from the movie industry to improve rehabilitation for stroke patients. Motion capture technology, used by filmmakersShow More Summary

BlackBerry's latest casualty: Two unreleased phones

2013 continues to be a downer year for the company formerly known as Research In Motion. The Wall Street Journal has just uncovered a tidbit in BlackBerry's latest earnings report that states two unreleased phones had to be cancelled due to poor...

Researchers simulate a worm's internal muscle sensations with code

2 years agoGenres / Sci Fi : io9

Developers working on the OpenWorm Project, an effort to create a virtual nematode worm in a computer, have attained an important milestone after successfully creating a software engine that drives worm body motion. Read more...

"The Great Attractor" --Cosmic Flows of the Local Universe (VIDEO)

This past June, an international team of researchers has mapped the motions of structures of the nearby universe in greater detail than ever before. The maps are presented as a video, which provides a dynamic three-dimensional representation of the universe...

Academia Vs Paranormal Researchers: Graduate Degrees Do Not Make Experts

While doing some research for a post about something completely different than this one, I read a few paragraphs online that set the wheels of my brain in motion, which admittedly, is no simple task. The paragraphs were essentially an opinion about credibility in paranormal research, and...

Neither snow, nor rain, nor gloom of night stays MIT's new TOF camera

2 years agoTechnology / Gadgets : Gizmag

MIT researchers have developed a new time-of-flight (TOF) 3D "nano-camera" with the ability to work with translucent objects, motion, fog, rain, and other factors in the environment that totally confuse previous TOF cameras, such as Microsoft's second-gen Kinect. Show More Summary

A Rehab Machine That Lets Patients See Their Muscles In Motion

A skilled physiotherapist can get your body working again after an injury, but even they can’t see your inner workings while you’re rebuilding muscle. So a team of researchers from Saitama University have developed a rehabilitation machine that generates a virtual representation of the muscles in your arm letting you, and your physician, see them in motion.
