Hitching a ride in a robotic car may cause motion sickness, according to a study from the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute.
A newly released study from the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute finds that around 10 percent of people riding in an autonomous car might experience motion sickness, if they aren't paying attention to the road. Show More Summary
The researchers dubbed the individual cells "microscopic tornadoes" for their rapid rotation, which both forms the crystals by drawing in other cells and then powers the crystals' own motion.
Mercedes-Benz is showing off their vision of the future in a very SIMS-like video, which stars their F 015 Luxury in Motion autonomous research car. The animation shows what an average day may look like in the future, from your car greeting you with op... via JustLuxe.com
The use of optical sound-on-film recording on early movie films revolutionized the motion picture industry and remained the standard method of audio recording in that medium for more than 80 years. Now researchers from the University...Show More Summary
A chance discovery by a team of researchers, including a University of York scientist, has provided experimental evidence that stars may generate sound. The study of fluids in motion -- now known as hydrodynamics -- goes back to the Egyptians,...
A chance discovery has provided experimental evidence that stars may generate sound. The study of fluids in motion – now known as hydrodynamics – goes back to the Egyptians, so it is not often that new discoveries are made. However when examining the interaction of an ultra-intense laser with a plasma target, the team observed something unexpected. Show More Summary

Drones have evolved from hobbyist toys to professional tools as the FAA partnered with CNN to establish a drone usage protocol for journalists and started issuing exemptions allowing commercial use. In order for these tools to succeed in the fields above, let alone search and rescue missions, commercial delivery and monitor livestock farms, they need [...]Show More Summary
There may be a fundamental bias in the way people prefer to see moving items depicted in pictures, according to research. An analysis of photos of people and objects in motion revealed a common left-to-right bias.
Nokia, Motorola, Sony-Ericsson and BlackBerry-maker Research in Motion were all victims of disruption. During the 1990s and 2000s, they led the cell phone during its period of takeoff into ubiquity. Then in the last five years, they all lost their leadership positions and are now on the verge of irrelevance. The common culprit was the 2007 launch of Apple’s iPhone. read more

Videographer Rob Whitworth spent 3 months of exploring, researching and filming his impressions while immersed in the desert metropolis of Dubai. Condensing the 3 month stay into only 3 minutes of footage, Whitworth’s video is essentially… The post Walk, Fly and Drive Through Dubai in Flow Motion appeared first on Highsnobiety.
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
