Research grasps how the brain plans gripping motion

With the results of a new study, neuroscientists have a firmer grasp on the way the brain formulates commands for the hand to grip an object. The advance could lead to improvements in future brain-computer interfaces that provide people with severe paralysis a means to control robotic arms and hands using their thoughts. read more

Inside Forbes: We're Ready For A Different Kind Of News App -- And Our Audience Is, Too

I have this technology artifact near my desk. It was called the AOL Mobile Communicator, a small blue plastic device for instant messaging and email that was made by Research in Motion (now Blackberry). AOLers, as we called ourselves in the 00s, played with them incessantly. I often made colleagues [...]

Fiat Chrysler Issues Recall Over Hacking

The news that two researchers had hacked into a Jeep Cherokee, set in motion a nine-day flurry of activity by the automaker and the safety agency that culminated in the recall of 1.4 million vehicles.

Researchers bring to life proteins' motion

A new study expands scientists' understanding of proteins' normal functioning. Researchers identified how proteins move and change their shape in order to perform specific jobs. This advancement fills a gap in scientific knowledge that persisted for more than 30 years.

Ex-RIM co-CEO Balsillie offers brutally frank reflections on BlackBerry’s downfall

While Research in Motion certainly made many strategic missteps over the years, it never really had a shot at going toe-to-toe against Apple and Google in the consumer smartphone wars. Ex-RIM co-CEO Jim Balsillie on Tuesday gave a talk...Show More Summary

Jim Balsillie Defends His Record At Research In Motion

Jim Balsillie, the former co-CEO of Research In Motion, spoke in public about the company for the first time since leaving a few years ago.

Assessing the Rational Agent Response to Elimination of Tenure

Thinking about “Exit, Voice and Loyalty” in Wisconsin The Joint Finance Committee motion to remove tenure from state statute. Winners of the most competitive research awards the University of Wisconsin–Madison provides to its scholars have made a statement, found here. We are especially concerned about provision 39 of the omnibus motion, which authorizes the Board […]

Research in Motion co-founder Jim Balsillie wrote a lengthy article on Canadian innovation policy last week that focused primarily on intellectual property policy. While the article would have benefited from some editing, Balsillie's...Show More Summary

Researchers put magic spin on protein to tease out its first dance with the tempo set by temperature

All cells contain complex molecular components that fulfil functions necessary for the cell to live. These components require motion in a very particular order to function almost like an intricate set of dance steps, and researchers have learned that temperature affects these movements.

MPAA Will Pay You $20,000 For Your Pro-Copyright Research

Are you a college-affiliated academic who could use an extra $20,000? Do you have strong feelings in favor of copyright protections? Then the Motion Picture Association of America has a deal for you! The folks at TorrentFreak point out that the MPAA has been quietly running a research grant program that pays up to $20,000 for research into “increasing public … [More]

New proton therapy technique brings hope of more effective treatment for tumors without causing collateral damage

Researchers have succeeded in making a model of breathing movement that allows for the precise measurement of narrow beams to a dummy tumor in the lung by simulating the motion and physical properties of the chest anatomy in a model, thereby taking a large step towards maximizing the targeting of treatment in mobile organs.

"Motion-Tracking" MRI Tests Reveal Novel Harbingers of Stroke in People with Common Heart Rhythm Disorder

Researchers performing sophisticated motion studies of heart MRI scans have found that specific altered function in the left atrium of the heart may signal stroke risk in those with atrial fibrillation and, possibly, those without i...

"Motion Magnification" Reveals Vibrations Invisible to the Naked Eye

3 months agoTechnology / Gadgets : Gizmodo

A crane towering over a construction site might look rock solid to the naked eye, but new video processing software developed by researchers at MIT is able to accentuate and reveal its subtle motions as it sways back and forth in the wind. And it promises to have a devastating effect on enrollment at crane operator schools across the country. Read more...

Passengers in robotic cars may be prone to motion sickness

Hitching a ride in a robotic car may cause motion sickness, according to a study from the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute.

Why motion sickness will be a bigger issue with self-driving cars

A newly released study from the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute finds that around 10 percent of people riding in an autonomous car might experience motion sickness, if they aren't paying attention to the road. Show More Summary

Under the microscope, strong-swimming swamp bacteria spontaneously organize into crystals

The researchers dubbed the individual cells "microscopic tornadoes" for their rapid rotation, which both forms the crystals by drawing in other cells and then powers the crystals' own motion.

Mercedes-Benz Shows Us What The Autonomous Future Will Look Like in Cool New Video

Mercedes-Benz is showing off their vision of the future in a very SIMS-like video, which stars their F 015 Luxury in Motion autonomous research car. The animation shows what an average day may look like in the future, from your car greeting you with op... via
