Movie sets are normally the home of three-dimensional motion caption systems, but researchers used the same video recording system in a lab to measure the way pregnant women walk. This is the first research study to use 3-D motion capture to create a biomechanical model of pregnant women. Show More Summary
Motion tracking is nothing new for Microsoft, we have seen their expertise in commercial products like Microsoft Kinect. Microsoft Research’s computer vision team is now working on latest advances in detailed hand tracking. They have created a system that can track hands smoothly, quickly and accurately – in real time – but can run on […]
Large sections of land on either side of the San Andreas fault are moving up or down every year by a few millimeters, a major form of motion that researchers report in a new study that sheds light on the mechanics of the famous fault line. Show More Summary
A new mathematical framework allows researchers to capture fluid dynamics coupled to interface motion at unprecedented detail. The framework, called "interfacial gauge methods" rewrites the equations governing incompressible fluid flow in a way that is more amenable to accurate computer modeling.
Researchers at the Florida Institute of Technology recorded a lightning storm at 7000 frames per second.
A new study by an international team of researchers, affiliated with Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST) has announced that they have succeeded for the first time in observing the structural changes in carbonic...Show More Summary
For the first time, scientists have observed the structural changes in carbonic anhydrase. They expect that this will greatly contribute to the future biomedical research and new drug development.
Researchers have uncovered key features of the dynamics of a form of jerky motion responsible for phenomena as diverse as squeaks and squeals in door hinges and automotive brakes, joint wear in the human body and the sudden shifting of tectonic plates leading to earthquakes.
Yesterday I appeared alongside Jim Balsillie, former co-CEO of Research in Motion, at the House of Commons Standing Committee on International Trade public consultation on the TPP. There were some interesting exchanges that I will highlight once the transcript is released. Show More Summary
Researchers found a simple solution to the limited durability in aluminum-ion batteries – an electrode composed of graphite. In this work, the internal gaps in the foam allowed faster motion of the ions inside the negative electrode that enhance the rate of charging.
Researchers say nearly half of women prefer their partners to be either totally or partially pube-free. Nothing helps set a trend in motion like some good ol’ jargon. So when the salon industry started throwing around regretful phrase “back, sack and crack,” we should have seen it coming. Show More Summary
CAMBRIDGE, MA -- Researchers at MIT and other institutions have found a new phenomenon in the behavior of a kind of quasiparticles called plasmons as they move along tiny ribbons of two-dimensional materials such as graphene and TMDs (transition metal dichalcogenides), which have a hexagonal structure resembling chicken wire.

A Facebook Inc. application is installed on a Research in Motion (RIM) Ltd. BlackBerry, arranged for a photograph in Beijing, China, on Thursday, Feb. 12, 2009. Facebook, operator of the world's largest social-networking site, is working to offer more services on mobile phones from manufacturers such as Nokia Oyj, Apple [...]
The ability to make simple reaching motions or drive a car depends on the brains ability to guide action in a region of the brain called cerebellum. When the interaction of the cells within the cerebellum is disrupted, people experience...Show More Summary
Pharmaceutical companies and clinical research organizations (CROs) that adopt risk-based monitoring (RBM) in their clinical development programs often ask what a normal day or normal week will look like for the resources involved in the process. Much like driving a car on new roads, you don’t necessarily know what is around [...]
Most aquatic species sense sound via particle motion, yet few studies on underwater acoustic ecology have included measurements of particle motion. In response, researchers from the Universities of Exeter, Bristol and Leiden and CEFAS...Show More Summary
While all age groups report comparable improvement in range of motion following total knee replacement surgery (TKR), new research presented today at the 2016 Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) found that patients age 45 and younger, and those age 75 and older, report more pain and less activity following the procedure. read more
Researchers created a robot hand that is so accurate it has almost the same dexterity as a human hand. That alone is enough to improve the motion capabilities in prosthetics in a way that has never been seen before. But the researchers...Show More Summary
An international team has used the light produced by the Free Electron Laser FERMI at the research Centre Elettra Sincrotrone Trieste in the AREA Science Park to control the ultrafast movement of electrons. The experiment, publishedShow More Summary
New research article embraces the status of the experimental situation and touches obstacles that still hinder the applications of single molecules in the cellular environment.
