This past June, an international team of researchers has mapped the motions of structures of the nearby universe in greater detail than ever before. The maps are presented as a video, which provides a dynamic three-dimensional representation of the universe...
While doing some research for a post about something completely different than this one, I read a few paragraphs online that set the wheels of my brain in motion, which admittedly, is no simple task. The paragraphs were essentially an opinion about credibility in paranormal research, and...
MIT researchers have developed a new time-of-flight (TOF) 3D "nano-camera" with the ability to work with translucent objects, motion, fog, rain, and other factors in the environment that totally confuse previous TOF cameras, such as Microsoft's second-gen Kinect. Show More Summary
A skilled physiotherapist can get your body working again after an injury, but even they can’t see your inner workings while you’re rebuilding muscle. So a team of researchers from Saitama University have developed a rehabilitation machine that generates a virtual representation of the muscles in your arm letting you, and your physician, see them in motion.

Researchers find that electrons teetering on the edge of free motion or stuck in place yield optimal superconductivity. Their work explains common characteristics between two different superconducting iron compounds and may help in the search for better "high-temperature" superconductors.
And watch it in slow motion! This amazing video shows how a couple of researchers juggle ping pong balls with a stream of water - at times actually throwing in a new ball and letting the water throw the old one back. Read more...
By Redrut: Yeah, I thought I would put RIM instead of Blackberry (BBRY) since the brand is effectively dead. (click to enlarge) There has been complete polarity of opinion on Seeking Alpha as to where the value is going which is incredible when you realize you can't actually remember the last piece of good news from RIM.

Many people who qualify as being blind can still perceive some light and motion. A new pair of smart glasses use this to help blind people see more. The special glasses, developed by Stephen Hicks, a research fellow in neuroscience and...Show More Summary
Our vision depends on exquisitely organized layers of cells within the eye’s retina, each with a distinct role in perception. Researchers say they have taken an important step toward understanding how those cells are organized to produce...Show More Summary
Certain parts of DNA are highly mobile and their dynamic motion participates in controlling gene expression. The research team working under Mariaâ??Elena Torresâ??Padilla, an Inserm research director at the Institute of Genetics and...Show More Summary
