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).
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.
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 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.

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
By Kevin Quon: (On Friday, January 10, 2014, I returned to Solazyme's research headquarters in San Francisco to converse with key staff members in a follow-up session nearly 2 years after my last visit found here. This is the last article of a series which is based on my own conclusions as an individual investor in the company. Show More Summary
ByQuoth the Raven: The Rebirth of a Badass I remember when Research in Motion first came out with the original BlackBerry (BBRY) - they were unlike anything in the world of mobile phones at the time. No one had heard of the brand, no...Show More Summary
By Stock Reversals: It's kind of interesting that Research in Motion changed their name to BlackBerry (BBRY), and not much has gone right since and certainly not for the "Blackberry" brand. We would not be surprised to see them change the name again, and spin off a few divisions to focus on their Mobile Device Management and enterprise business. Show More Summary
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.
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

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...
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...
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...
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...
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 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.
