Scientists are using Xbox Kinect to let orangutans play video games

Humans are not the only animals into video games, it turns out. In a research project that began Monday, orangutans at Australia's Melbourne Zoo are being entertained with interactive projections from an Xbox Kinect, a motion sensing device built for the gaming console. Show More Summary

The Trouble with the TPP, Day 21: U.S. Requires Canadian Anti-Counterfeiting Report Card

This weekend, former Research in Motion co-CEO Jim Balsillie wrote a must-read opinion piece in the Globe and Mail on the TPP. Balsillie makes a compelling case for how Canadian IP policy has failed in light of decisions to consistently...Show More Summary

Spin dynamics in an atomically thin semi-conductor

The mechanisms for spin motion in molybdenum disulfide, an emerging two-dimensional (2D) material, have been established by researchers. Their discovery resolves a research question on the properties of electron spin in single layers of 2D materials, and paves the way for the next generation of spintronics and low-power devices.

Spin dynamics in an atomically thin semi-conductor

Researchers at the National University of Singapore (NUS) and Yale-NUS College have established the mechanisms for spin motion in molybdenum disulfide, an emerging two-dimensional (2D) material. Their discovery resolves a research question...Show More Summary

Virtual Reality Makes Its Best Users the Most Queasy

In a twist of virtual fate, people with the best 3-D vision are also the people most likely to suffer from motion sickness while using virtual reality displays. Researchers demonstrated this irony by playing motion-heavy videos for study participants through the Oculus Rift. Nearly two-thirds of the study subjects quit watching the videos early, overcome by nausea.

Keep on Moving: Scientists Predict Revolutionary Dancing Crystals

Researchers from Canada and the United States have proposed a new type of crystal, whose elements remain in a perpetual state of motion, media reports said.

Watch a chameleon snatch its prey in super slow motion

last monthTechnology : Tech Talk

New research shows that the smaller the chameleon, the more dramatically their tongues spring into action

Brain Implant that Could Reanimate Paralyzed Limbs Secures $16M in Funding

NSF gave researchers a $16 million grant to figure out how to embed devices in the brain that will restore motion to paralyzed limbs.

Researchers use Apple Watch to pilot drone, control HomeKit Hue lamps via hand gestures

Engineering students at Taiwan's National Chung Hsing University demonstrated a clever use of the motion sensors in Apple Watch to interpret hand gestures, enabling them to remotely control real world devices akin to the science fiction fantasy depicted in Star Wars.

3-D footage of nematode brains links neurons with motion and behavior

A new instrument has allowed researchers to capture among the first 3-D recordings of neural activity in nearly the entire brain of a free-moving animal, the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans. The findings could provide scientists with a better understanding of how neurons coordinate action and perception in animals.

A Slow Motion Demonstration of a Drone in Full Throttle Acting as a Really Effective Food Processor

2 months agoHumor / odd : Laughing Squid

Speed Motion has put together a silly, but well produced slow motion video shot with a Phantom Miro camera from Vision Research, that shows in perfect detail how well a drone running at full speed can effectively act as an ad hoc food processor, decimating any and everything thrown at it. The film was shot […]

HR-OS1 Tackles the Stairs!

Qian Wang, a student working in a group of researchers from the Institute of Media Innovation at Nanyang Technological University has done an excellent job making a set of motions that allows the HR-OS1 to climb up stairs! Keeping in mind the weight balance of each part, the movement looks both careful and acrobatic. One […]

Physics for the mechanism of slow change in microscopic magnetic structures revealed

A slow change of microscopic magnetic structures in metallic wires induced by external driving forces, commonly called 'creep' motion, has been studied by a group of researchers. This has allowed them to clarify the physics of how the driving forces, magnetic fields or electric currents, act on the magnetic structure.

Sperm crane their neck to turn right

Researchers find two distinct motions in sperm Unless they crane their necks all sperm would only turn left University of Warwick researchers say this could mean two distinct sperm subpopulations Discovery could improve IVF and fertility...Show More Summary

Online game reveals something fishy about mathematical models

How can you tell if your mathematical model is good enough? Researchers have now implemented a Turing test in the form of an online game (with over 1700 players) to assess how good their models were at reproducing collective motion of real fish schools.

Watching a Lego Sisyphus Perpetually Push a Boulder Is Unimaginably Relaxing

2 months agoTechnology / Gadgets : Gizmodo

Inspired by a Disney Research project that automatically calculates all the gears and mechanical links needed to create realistic motion in an animated figure, Jason Allemann of JK Brickworks created this incredibly lifelike kinetic sculpture of the tragic Greek figure, Sisyphus, using Lego.

Closing the loop on an HIV escape mechanism

The motion of a specific protein in a human cell regulates whether HIV will infect other cells, a collaborative six-university research team has found. The finding may lead to promising new ways to thwart the virus that causes AIDS.

Watch Takata’s Defective Airbags Explode in Slow Motion

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.
