MIT engineers manipulate water using only light

(Massachusetts Institute of Technology) A new system developed by engineers at MIT could make it possible to control the way water moves over a surface, using only light. This advance may open the door to technologies such as microfluidic...Show More Summary

New strategy produces stronger polymers

(Massachusetts Institute of Technology) MIT researchers have found a way to reduce the number of loops in polymer networks such as gels, plastics, and rubber. The findings could offer an easy way for manufacturers to strengthen their materials.

Brain circuit enables split-second decisions when cues conflict

(Massachusetts Institute of Technology) MIT researchers have identified a circuit in the brain that is critical for governing how we respond to conflicting environmental cues.

Climate change predicted to increase Nile flow variability

(Massachusetts Institute of Technology) The unpredictable annual flow of the Nile River is legendary, as evidenced by the story of Joseph and the Pharaoh, whose dream foretold seven years of abundance followed by seven years of famine in a land whose agriculture was, and still is, utterly dependent on that flow.

Graphene withstands high pressure, may aid in desalination

(Massachusetts Institute of Technology) Used in filtration membranes, ultrathin material could help make desalination more productive.

High-speed images capture archer fish's rocket-like launch

(Massachusetts Institute of Technology) MIT engineers have detailed the hydrodynamics of the archer fish's rocket-like jumping behavior in a paper published in the Journal of Experimental Biology.

Graphene 'copy machine' may produce cheap semiconductor wafers

(Massachusetts Institute of Technology) A new technique developed by MIT engineers may vastly reduce the overall cost of wafer technology and enable devices made from more exotic, higher-performing semiconductor materials than conventional silicon. Show More Summary

Researchers Produce High-Quality Ink from Air Pollution

The pollution coming out of your tailpipe could be recycled into high-quality ink according to a group of researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. -- Read more on

Getting things done while you wait for WiFi

(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, CSAIL ) To help us make the most of idle moments, researchers from MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) have developed a series of apps called 'WaitSuite' that test you on vocabulary words during moments of waiting,like when you're waiting for an instant message or for your phone to connect to WiFi.

High-resolution imaging with conventional microscopes

(Massachusetts Institute of Technology) MIT researchers have developed a way to make extremely high-resolution images of tissue samples, at a fraction of the cost of other techniques with similar resolution. Known as iterative expansion microscopy, relies on expanding tissue repeatedly, before imaging it with a conventional light microscope.

A Device To Draw Water From Desert Air

last weekHumor / odd : The Sideshow

Built at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the water harvester could pull almost three liters of water in 12 hours with humidity at 20-30 percent.

Several serious errors in the CIA Report on the Khan Shaykhun incident

In a report published on 13 April 2016, Professor Theodore Postol, an expert at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), observes that the Intelligence Agencies report, published by the White House, contains several gross errors. Show More Summary

Researchers develop solar-powered device to harvest water in the desert

A solar-powered device could make water worries a thing of the past. Nine scientists from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology, and University of California, Berkeley designed a water harvester that can pull water from air even if humidity is just 20 percent. Show More Summary

Researchers design coatings to prevent pipeline clogging

(Massachusetts Institute of Technology) A new coating developed at MIT could prevent methane clathrate clogs and blowouts in oil pipelines.

MIT Publishes Children’s Book Promoting Communism

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology has traditionally been associated with the brightest minds in constructive fields like engineering. But now, like most of academia, it is succumbing to moonbattery: MIT

How some battery materials expand without cracking

(Massachusetts Institute of Technology) New findings from MIT and elsewhere show some phosphate-based battery materials can change from crystalline to glassy while in use, possibly opening new avenues for design of batteries.

Light-emitting particles open new window for biological imaging

(Massachusetts Institute of Technology) For certain frequencies of short-wave infrared light, most biological tissues are nearly as transparent as glass. Now, researchers have made tiny particles that can be injected into the body, where they emit those penetrating frequencies. Show More Summary

New technology can detect tiny ovarian tumors

(Massachusetts Institute of Technology) MIT engineers have developed a highly sensitive way to reveal ovarian tumors: In tests in mice, they were able to detect tumors smaller than 2 millimeters in diameter. The new test makes use of a 'synthetic biomarker' -- a nanoparticle that interacts with tumor proteins and can be detected in a patient's urine sample.

Knight Foundation Issues Innovation Report, Grants

On March 30 the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation (KF) announced the award of nearly $1 million to support five innovative library projects. The Charlotte Mecklenburg Library (CML), NC; Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT),...Show More Summary
