Researchers have uncovered a promising new pathway to valleytronics, a potential quantum computing technology in which information is coded based on the wavelike motion of electrons moving through certain 2-D semiconductors.
Bran Dougherty-Johnson has long been a watchdog in the motion design community, keeping an eye on misbalances of power and conducting research to help us all work together fairly. But he’s also a director with a finely honed voice, as his new reel shows. Bran recently signed with a new production company, The Foreign Correspondents’ Club, with... Read more »
A face is more than a static collection of features. A shift in gaze, a tightening of the lips, a tilt of the head, these movements convey important clues to someone's state of mind. Scientists know that two particularly social and visual...Show More Summary

The F 015 Luxury in Motion research vehicle is a new self-driving concept car recently unveiled by Mercedes-Benz. The car’s four passengers are transported in a futuristic, lounge-like space, complete with four swivel chairs that can rotate so the passengers face one another. The cabin is wired with six interactive displays and the outside world […]
New research into the way in which we learn new skills finds that a single skill can be learned faster if its follow-through motion is consistent, but multiple skills can be learned simultaneously if the follow-through motion is var...
Mercedes-Benz has presented its vision of the future of the automobile at the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show with its self-driving F 015 Luxury in Motion research vehicle. Autonomous cars are expected to arrive within the next five to ten years, but Mercedes'
S coring clients on LinkedIn, reeling in top business executives as investors, turning animal motion research into physical therapy — Baltimore-area startups have had a busy year. Startup companies are an interesting bunch that you can count on for "why didn't I think of that?" ideas and business ventures. Show More Summary
Researchers from Switzerland and Belgium believe that they have devised the first alien life detector. The tiny motion detector that will be able to find microscopic forms of life on distant planets. To date, scientists have been limited...Show More Summary
Neutrophils, cells recruited by the immune system to fight infection, need to move through a great variety of tissues. New research shows how neutrophils move through confined spaces in the body. A new system can mimic tissues of different densities and stiffness, enabling improved development and testing of drugs.
One of the oldest and most widely used antibiotics, penicillin, attacks enzymes that build the bacterial cell wall. Researchers have now shown that penicillin and its variants also set in motion a toxic malfunctioning of the cell's wall-building machinery, dooming the cell to a futile cycle of building and then immediately destroying that wall.
People on the autistic spectrum may struggle to recognize social cues, unfamiliar people or even someone’s gender because of an inability to interpret changing facial expressions, new research has found.

In 2013, a group of researchers published a paper called Collective Motion of Moshers at Heavy Metal Concerts. The paper's abstract reads: Human collective behavior can vary from calm to panicked depending on social context. Using videos publicly available online, we study the highly energized collective motion of attendees at heavy metal concerts. Show More Summary
NEW YORK — (October 8, 2014) -- Researchers at Weill Cornell Medical College have developed technologies that allow investigators, for the first time, to watch what they call the "dance" of HIV proteins on the virus' surface, which may contribute to how it infects human immune cells.

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency in the United States, have developed and tested the prototype of a self-guiding bullet. The so called Darpa’s bullet has the ability to guide itself while in motion and maintain accuracy on target, even in conditions in which any human can make an error. Darpa’s self-guiding bullets are part [...]
A new study, spearheaded by Andrew Motion and a team of researchers at Cambridge University, sets out to survey individuals across the U.K. to find out “what poetry is stored in our nation’s memory, and what it means to the individuals who remember it.” From The Guardian: Which is why I love the sound of [...]
