To figure out why airbags are sending dangerous shards into passengers, researchers are blowing them up over and over again. The post Watch Takata’s Defective Airbags Explode in Slow Motion appeared first on WIRED.
Within a giant impact basin near the moon's south pole, there sits a large mound of mysterious origin. Research by geologists suggests that the mound was formed by unique volcanic processes set in motion by the impact that formed the basin.
Take a peek at the pink! 4 simple things you can do to help me increase my donation to fund cancer research. The post Pinking Up The Place! Help Me Raise Money For Breast Cancer Research appeared first on Pizza In Motion.
It seems rumors that claimed Apple was conducting research into an "iRing" wearable product were based in reality, as a new patent application reveals work on a finger-mounted device stuffed with microphones, motion sensors, a haptic feedback system, biometric sensors, cameras and even a small display.
Researchers have for the first time been able to measure a material's resistance to fracturing from various types of tectonic motions in Earth's middle crust, a discovery that may lead to better understanding of how large earthquakes and slower moving events interact.
In the future, your home theater might need to be outside of your actual home. A collaboration between research group Fraunhofer and the Max Planck Institute’s Biological Cybernetics group has led to the creation of a… Autonomous Quadcopters...Show More Summary
At the pinnacle of their unprecedented success, Research In Motion, an upstart Canadian company from Waterloo, Ontario which started over a bagel shop, was selling 64,000 BlackBerrys a day, an astounding figure in the hyper-competitive world of cell phone sales. Show More Summary
Based on a few whispers and some research, MacRumors believes that Swiss real-time motion capture firm Faceshift may have been acquired by Apple in recent weeks. Faceshift has been working with game and animation studios, as well asShow More Summary
From Associations Now: On Tuesday, the American Library Association, Association of College and Research Libraries, Association of Research Libraries, and the Chief Officers of State Library Agencies [COSLA] filed a motion seeking permission to file an amicus brief in support of the FCC in U.S. Show More Summary
Researchers have for the first time seen a spin current -- an inherent magnetic property common to all electrons -- as it travels across materials. The result, which revealed a surprising loss of current along the way, is an important step toward realizing a next-generation breed of electronics known as “spintronics.”
The autonomously driving Mercedes-Benz F 015 Luxury in Motion is celebrating its European premiere at the Ars Electronica Festival in Linz. This year's event is being staged under the banner "POST CITY ? habitats for the 21st century" and looks at the question of how our towns and cities will change under the influence of advances in digitalization.

Even large objects obey quantum physics, meaning they are never quite at rest. Researchers have developed a way to detect -- and manipulate -- this underlying quantum motion.
Not too long ago, virtual reality was more science fiction than science fact. Over the past couple of years, giant leaps have been made toward developing this robust platform. However, one challenge still stands in the way for greater consumer adoption: motion sickness. Show More Summary
A taste of the future in animation, motion capture, and 3-D printing, from five new papers published by Disney Research. Leading up to this year's Siggraph conference—the biggest event of the year in computer graphics and experimental...Show More Summary
Protein machines, regardless of their specific functions, can collectively induce fluctuating hydrodynamic flows and substantially enhance the diffusive motions of particles in the cell, an international research group has demonstra...
Lightning researcher Tom A. Warner and his daughter recently filmed an active lightning storm in slow motion at 2,000fps using a Phantom Miro eX4 high-speed camera. The footage captures the lightning as it appears to slowly creep through the sky and down to the ground. via Twisted Sifter
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
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 [...]
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.
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.
